Artificial Photosynthesis Effort Takes Root

Artificial Photosynthesis Effort Takes Root | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it

A $122 million innovation hub could speed the development of devices for making fuel from water and sunlight.

Two years after first getting funding, one of the current hubs—a Caltech-based effort focused on using sunlight to make liquid fuels—says it has made substantial progress toward devices that convert sunlight and water into hydrogen and oxygen that could be used to power a car or generate electricity on demand. Eventually, the researchers hope to combine the hydrogen with carbon from carbon dioxide to make liquid fuels similar to gasoline or diesel.

So many interesting developments at the moment..just wish Mankind would invest more in true civilisation instead of spending trillions on weapon industry.

its so safe, that's why they don't want it labeled, really? So let's fund independent research with 200 million euro, then we will talk again.

#Scientist acts out dramatic effect of #climate change

#Scientist acts out dramatic effect of #climate change | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it

Climate science has just made cultural history – yet again. Following on from the sci-fi blockbuster The Day After Tomorrow and the Al Gore documentary movie An Inconvenient Truth, research has got personal and turned into a five-star dramatic soliloquy on the London stage.

Chris Rapley is a professor of climate science at University College London, a former director of the British Antarctic Survey, a former director of the Science Museum in London − and now, unexpectedly, an actor on the stage of the historic Royal Court Theatre.

He is the star and only member of the dramatis personae of 2071, a play named after the date at which, he says, his eldest grandchild will be the age he is now. He has collaborated with playwright Duncan Macmillan, and with Katie Mitchell, a director with a track record of interest in the hard themes of humanity’s future on Earth.

 

The performance, however, could almost be called anti-theatre. There is no conflict, no violence, and there is − beyond the discreet waving of a hand or the re-positioning of a leg − almost no physical action at all. The actor Rapley sits in one place, with only a glass of water as a prop, and embarks on a monologue.

 

Furthermore, it is in one sense an anti-dramatic monologue, sounding in many ways remarkably like a procession of extracts from the abstracts of scientific papers, or the executive summary of any number of publications of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

 

There are few concessions to popular language: the diction and choice of terminology is of the kind you tend to hear at science briefings.
