“Presentations are a curious thing. Many people hate them with the passion of a thousand burning suns. Yet there are many who love experimenting with typography and color in their slides. Regardless of which team you're on, you should know there are other options for presentations on Linux besides LibreOffice Impress. I'm not talking about…”

A crowdfunding CAMPAIGN FOR A brain imaging studyclosed Monday after raising almost $80,000 toward a unique goal: the first functional magnetic resonance images of the brain on LSD. The Beckley Foundation, a UK-based charitable trust that promotes research and awareness of psychoactive drugs, will use the money to scan volunteers who’ve dropped acid. Such are the sacrifices people will make for science.

Now, it’s little surprise scientists studying the effects of illicit drugs must sometimes find unconventional benefactors—or that thousands of people would invest in seeing the brains of volunteers tripping balls. But in recent years, crowdfunding has grown increasingly popular among researchers in nearly every field. Successful campaigns have explored drought tolerance in Spanish and Indian oak species, attempted to explain jokes with math, and worked to discover exoplanets in the far reaches of space. The first crowdfunded experiments popped up on traditional platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo; now sites like Petridish, Experiment, andWalacea cater specifically to scientific fundraising.

Renewable Energy Future Looks Less Costly

Renewable Energy Future Looks Less Costly | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
“ Adopting all-renewable energy may be costly, but not as much as the status quo after counting negative effects.”

Global power demand today is about 12.5 terawatts, which is likely to grow to 17 terawatts by 2030, the U.S. Energy Department reports. Meeting that demand with renewable power certainly won’t be cheap. Mark Jacobson, a civil and environmental engineering professor at Stanford, and Mark Delucchi, a research scientist at the University of California, Davis’s Institute of Transportation Studies, estimate that construction of a worldwide wind, water and solar system would cost $100 trillion over 20 years, including upgrades to the grid.

Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, April 25, 7:47 AM

The International Energy Agency has put a price tag on confronting climate change at $10.5 trillion by 2030. That’s the global investment in low-carbon energy (plus energy efficiency) that’s needed, the agency estimates, to hold greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere to 450 parts per million and world temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius.

According to Mark Moro, a fellow at the Brookings Institution, “The figure $10.5 trillion by 2030 declares objectively and indelibly that the battle against climate change requires remaking the world energy system with new technologies, many of which don’t exist, or don’t exist cheaply enough, and that we’d better get to work on that in earnest.”
