Science Feedback – check out this network of scientists fighting back against misleading news

Reading the news can be scary. Our practical minds know that headlines are meant to pull us in and articles are written with bias. In a perfect world we’ll do our research but sometimes we just don’t have the time. When it comes to science articles, Science Feedback is the site that sorts out the news so you know what to trust.

Climate Change Now – report shows that we’re already suffering

Climate change is something that we tend to think about in future terms. Which is to say we have to do something now because tomorrow (many years from now) will be bad if we don’t but this isn’t the case. Climate change is hurting us right now and people are not really so aware of that but they should be.

Sound Transmitted by Lasers – MIT develops way to transmit sound through lasers

So what if you want to whisper a secret to your buddy across the room? Right now you probably get their attention and then mouth it or text them. But in the future, the answer could be freaking lasers! Researchers from MIT who clearly spend time and money on mad scientist ideas, have developed a system that can transmit sound through lasers.

Acoustic Metamaterial – this innovation is a new way to block out noise

The modern world is super noisy. Technology makes a lot of sounds and many of them aren’t what we could call pleasant. They’re just loud but unfortunately noise canceling options are unwiedly and unattractive. That may change in the future with Acoustic Metamaterial, the new material that can cancel out 94% of sound.

Quantitative Science Studies – the newest open access journal

Access to full scholarly papers is expensive which means that people just aren’t able to access the raw information for their own studies or just to draw their own conclusions. The system is not one that’s greatly favored by people and in response to that, Quantitative Science Studies was created, the newest open access journal.

Carbon Powder Traps Emissions – this powder can capture emissions before they hit the atmosphere

Turning back the clock on climate change is a battle fought on many fronts. While we’re switching over to sustainable energy sources, there still needs to be done with the emissions that being poured into our air now. One researcher has developed a powder that can capture emissions keeping them out of the air and shows some promise.

Hydropower and Droughts – when the water dries up, emissions increase

Hydropower is a familiar clean energy option but when there’s no water, there’s a definite increase in emissions from other less sustainable energy sources. This may seem like a no brainer but with the possibility of increasing droughts due to climate change, this could spell big trouble for many clean energy efforts.

Cloud Seeding – this science fiction concept is a reality

Snow, it’s more important than people think. If you’re just living in a city, it’s the white stuff that makes your morning commute a hassle but for people in certain parts of the world that rely on winter snowfall to create the green pastures of spring, the lack of it is causing big problems. No worries though, science can make more with cloud seeding but it has some drawbacks.

Plants with Rabbit DNA Clean Air Better – new study reveals that unlikely pairing make better air purifiers

Even when you’re in your house, you’re not safe from air pollution. You’re safer but it’s air, it’s everywhere. Having plants in your house helps clean air which is great but take it one step further with a rabbit plant hybrid for more powerful air cleaning.

nergy House – this house inside of a lab answers some energy questions

Heating our homes is a big deal. It’s where we use a lot of energy because no one likes to be cold. Since you can’t just move into a new, energy efficient home, we’ve got to figure out how to get the most from what we do have. Which is why scientists in the UK built a whole house in a lab called Energy House.
