Just when you thought the impacts of climate change could get any worse now a relic from the cold war is resurfacing. Camp Century, a U.S. military base built within the Greenland Ice Sheet in 1959, doubled as a top-secret site for testing the feasibility of deploying nuclear missiles from the Arctic during the Cold […]

Learning About Efficient Combustion Technology From Fire Tornados. It is a fact of chemistry and physics, that combustion of fossil fuels produces CO2. That is true for all types of fuels and all types of combustion technology. Depending on how efficient that combustion is  (meaning how closly the ration of fuel to oxygen is), there […]

Do Contrails Impact Climate Change ? During the 3 days that commercial aircraft were grounded as a result of the 911 attacks most of the contrails in the sky’s over the U.S. and Canada disapeared, This reduction in cloud cover resulted in the average temperature increasing by 1.8 degrees celcius for this 3 day period.
