Those who come after us will either curse us — or thank us

(CNN)I first saw that climate was changing in 2000, when I went to Antarctica to study penguins. A senior scientist showed me how much a glacier near the research station had shrunk during his 20 years there. I later saw accelerated melting in the high Arctic in Svalbard, Norway, and in southern Alaska, I saw entire forests dying because winters were now warm enough for bark beetle infestations. It will get worse. The scientifically measured predictions have panned out and the bad times have begun. Centuries of burning fossil fuels and raising countless billions of farm animals have put so much heat-trapping, ocean-acidifying gas into the atmosphere that the planet is overwhelmed.

Scientists Have Identified Genes Linked To Left-Handedness, And Figured Out How They Alter The Brain

It was once believed that left-handedness was a curse and that all lefties had been marked out by the devil to do his bidding on Earth. Fortunately, we now have actual science, allowing a team of researchers to identify the genes associated with left-handedness. As it turns out, these genes are also strongly implicated with structuring the brain, and are even associated with conditions like schizophrenia and dementia. Writing in the journal Brain, the study authors explain that previous research has shown that identical twins are more likely to display the same handedness than non-identical twins, suggesting that handedness is largely genetic. To try to identify the specific genes involved, the researchers examined the genomes of nearly 400,000 people in the UK, 38,332 …

This Boy Gets Suspended For Fighting Back Against The Girl Who Beat Him At School And People Are Furious

So who rebelled? Philip Hammond Image copyright PA Media Theresa May’s former justice secretary is another key figure – so much so that he and his anti-no-deal associates have been dubbed the “Gaukeward squad”. The 48-year old former solicitor – who was George Osborne’s number two at the Treasury in pre-referendum days – has said a no-deal exit would be a “big mistake” for the UK and he would not be “complicit” in something which would see people lose their jobs. The South West Hertfordshire MP faced calls earlier this year from some activists in his constituency to deselect him.

Brazil Bans Land-Clearing Fires For 60 Days To Stop Blazes, But Is It Too Late?
