Submission + - CO2 to Ethanol in one step with cheap catalyst (sciencedaily.com)

networkBoy writes: Boffins at ORNL have discovered a simple and cheap catalyst that can take CO2 dissolved in solution with water and at room temperature convert it to ethanol with 60%+ yields. They envision it as a way to store surplus power from green energy plants and then burning it to fill in lulls in supply.

Submission + - Paypal is at it again (regretsy.com)

networkBoy writes: Once again Paypal is causing grief for people trusting it as their payment processor. Regretsy had not only their donations for a childrens toy drive frozen, but their entire account put on hold. An analysis of the issue is also available here: http://thegreengeeks.wordpress.com/2011/12/06/why-paypal-is-wrong-regarding-regretsy-according-to-their-own-policies/

Submission + - C++ goes to 11 (theregister.co.uk)

networkBoy writes: ISO has ratified the latest C++ standard, C++11. It brings C++ into managed language territory (the story compares it to Java and .NET). Among the improvements is better support for concurrency and multithreading. Automatic garbage collection was set to be part of the standard but was cut.
