Recycled Electrons

This article is publish pending until we figure out where the used electrons are located,

so they can be recirculated and recycled thru the distribution system.

My Free Science Lab furnishes you these pages to be displayed on your monitor with recycled electrons. Electricity is the movement of electrons and they are neither destroyed or created in the process. So enjoy and remember to recycle.


How trees talk –

You’ll never experience a walk in the forest the same way again after viewing this eighteen minute TED Talks lecture (June, 2016) by professor of ecology Suzanne Simard who explains how she used hard science (while out-running grizzlies) to discover trees talk to each other. From identifying “mother trees”, the hubs of vast symbiotic mycorrhizal networks, to suggesting ways to regenerate forests battling climate change, Simard clearly outlines how we need to change our relationships with these “supercooperators”.

Let’s catch up on star stuff we’ve been missing lately.

Farming Contributes 25% to Greenhouse Gas Emissions

 At the same time, agriculture is a massive contributor of greenhouse gases, helping to stoke the planetary warming that in turn affects the climate system.

Farming accounts for at least a quarter of world , according to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

By itself, it contributes 17 percent of the warming effect, especially through emissions of methane—a stronger heat-trapper than carbon dioxide—which comes from animal farming and rice paddies. Deforestation and conversion of virgin land to the plough are also powerful factors in the emissions total.

He believes the quest should be on providing better calories rather than more of them. Slashing waste and encouraging efficiency are the key.
“Today the planet provides twice as much food than it needs—4,600 calories per person per day, whereas we only need 2,300 calories,” Herren said in an interview with AFP.
