Interesting, in Michigan farmers who grow alfalfa, cut it and let it lay until it's dry before they bale it. That way you don't lose the water, it stays local. I can't even imagine how you would ship wet baled alfalfa to china in a ship without it catching fire from the fermentation! It's hard to imagine exporting Alfalfa to China period, but stranger things have happened, I'd imagine the shipping would be several times the cost of the alfalfa.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I would think that Bayer's patent on Heroin ran out a long time ago, Heroin overdose is supposedly a gentle pleasant way to die.
Here's a list of devices and carriers that are supported now.
We'll sell them a few bottles of Vernors to help out.
Of course the United Nation's Intergovernmental Pannel on Climate would cherry pick data that could cost them $Billions in funding and the opertunity for Climatologists to attend conferences in exotic locations all over the world.
I suspect that his intended audience has a deep-seat dis-trust of establishment types, and the Youtube/Google conglomerate have long since out ran their antiestablishmentarianism days!
Either it's sarcasm or you're an idiot, because it's easy to release carbon. What's hard is putting it back in the bottle.
No what's hard is convincing people that what was happening 18 years ago isn't happening now.
The IPCC AR5 notes the lack of warming since 1998:
[T]he rate of warming over the past 15 years (1998–2012) [is] 0.05 [–0.05 to +0.15] C per decade)which is smaller than the rate calculated since 1951 (1951–2012) [of] 0.12 [0.08 to 0.14] C per decade. IPCC AR5 weakens the case for AGW
OMG is that actually a negative warming in the range of possibilities reported by the IPCC?
Biochar puts carbon in the soil, improves the soil, sometimes dramatically, and keeps it there for mostly likely millennia.
It's encouraging that Taylor gets it, but the real problem is going to be convincing the the guitarists and violinists; there is a lot of superstitions involved in luthiery and especially in the classical markets. Currently most ebony available for reasonable priced instruments has had a coat of Lincoln black shoe dye applied to it, but admitting it publicly would kill your market. Everyone who considers themselves an elite performer is going to think that B grade Ebony is OK for the masses, but they'll get the "good" stuff because they are special, and a lot of mediocre players consider themselves elite performers.
What he just did was remove all money worries from his staff. Now all their focus can go on increasing the value of his business.
Hopefully, but in most cases, bills tend to rise to meet available cash for some reason. Often when household incomes hit the $70K-$140K range depending on location, household money management starts to get strategic instead of purely tactical and things change.
the NASA Aqua has on board a radiometer that measures the upward microwave radiation from molecules in the Earth's lower troposphere. these radiometers are calibrated against both an on-board platinum wire thermometer and the Cosmic Microwave Background. From these readings the temperature of the air can be calculated.
Data are available as global, hemispheric, zonal, and gridded averages. The global average covers 97-98% of the earth's surface, excluding only latitudes above +85 degrees, below -85 degrees and, in the cases of TLT and TMT, some areas with land above 1500 m altitude. The hemispheric averages are over the northern and southern hemispheres 0 to +/-85 degrees. The gridded data provide an almost global temperature map

Perhaps he meant they took the land from one Nation of Indians to set up reservations for Indians moved in from other places.
I've been to Hawaii, and to this day there are "homeless" people who literally live under a bush and forage for food and to be honest, I could see how a person could do this. If you can sit on your ass at the beach all day and not worry about a job, why not?.
Not to mention the Cascadia subduction zone, an earthquake there would drop a lot of buildings in Oregon and N. California too.

Neither Christy nor Spencer receives any research support or funding from oil, coal or industrial companies or organizations, or from any private or special interest groups. All of their climate research funding comes from federal and state grants or contracts.
UAH Global Temperature Report: March 2015 – down slightly
And just what do you suppose is driving this Climate change, it's hard to accept that it's temperature when there is so little difference in it.
