    What is global warming? How did it start? How will it continue? What will happen to humanity? Will one day we’ll be gone due to our own ignorance?

    Studying Ice Cores to Understand the Earth’s Climate

    One of the best ways to understand the Earth’s climate system as a whole is to look into the Earth’s past and to look at different time periods in the Earth’s climate history when greenhouse gases were at different levels. How much of the difference is really explained by the greenhouse gases themselves? How much is explained by other factors? Ice cores are among the best records for answering those questions. We collect ice cores both from Greenland and Antarctica. These are the two biggest ice sheets in the world, and the two ice sheets that contain really very, very old ice. If we drill down to the base of…

    Lamborghini has finally added a hybrid to its lineup, and it’s kind of bad for the environment. When you think of hybrids, you think environmentally friendly, right? But Lamborghini is taking a different approach, using hybrid technology to boost performance without taking fuel efficiency into consideration. Which raises the question: Should automakers use hybrid systems to increase speed rather than reduce pollution? Hybrids have grown in popularity since they were first introduced 20 years ago. Now, almost every automaker offers a hybrid option, and most hybrids can double the gas mileage of a standard car. But Lamborghini’s foray into electrification, the Sián FKP 37, doesn’t save fuel. The Sián is…
