+ - Japan launches an aircraft carrier->

PHAEDRU5 writes "'The Japanese Navy — officially the Maritime Self-Defense Force — has launched an "aircraft carrier." At least the Hyuga, launched at Yokohama on August 23, looks like an aircraft carrier — she has a flush flight deck and a large, starboard-side island structure...The Hyuga, the largest warship constructed in Japan since World War II, is considered by some observers to be the first step toward the development of a large aircraft carrier.'

Japan's back in the power-projection business."

+ - New Phytoplankton Model May Revise Warming Estimat

Submitted by PHAEDRU5
PHAEDRU5 (213667) writes "Everything you know about Global Warming (tm) could be wrong.

Global climate models are missing a good chunk of plant information that could significantly alter long-term climate change predictions. A new technique for modeling phytoplankton — microscopic plants in the upper layers of the Earth's waters — could reveal a much more accurate picture.
