Wake up, people: Science shows mask zealots were very, very wrong

I’ve long said the data on the Wuhan virus in no way matched the hysteria visited on most of the U.S. and the world. Whether “cases,” hospitalizations, deaths, masks, lockdowns, or anything else of the like, time and again, we’ve seen that the actual data reveal that our efforts to “slow the spread” have been largely useless… Read More Wake up, people: Science shows mask zealots were very, very wrong

The World’s Most Dangerous Super-volcano is NOT Yellowstone

hanks to movies and pop culture, the Yellowstone super-volcano in our backyard gets all the press from sensationalistic theories about the end of the world. The truth is there is a much more dangerous super-volcano and it’s not Yellowstone. It’s Campi Flegrei.

A Bill Gates Venture Aims To Spray Dust Into The Atmosphere To Block The Sun. What Could Go Wrong?

Microsoft’s billionaire founder Bill Gates is financially backing the development of sun-dimming technology that would potentially reflect sunlight out of Earth’s atmosphere, triggering a global cooling effect. The Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment (SCoPEx), launched by Harvard University scientists, aims to examine this solution by spraying non-toxic calcium carbonate (CaCO3) dust into the atmosphere — a sun-reflecting aerosol that may offset… Read More A Bill Gates Venture Aims To Spray Dust Into The Atmosphere To Block The Sun.

A Quarter of Known Bee Species Haven’t Been Seen Since 1990

The number of wild bee species recorded by an international database of life on Earth has declined by a quarter since 1990, according to a global analysis of bee declines. Researchers analysed bee records from museums, universities and citizen scientists collated by the Global Biodiversity Information Facility, (GBIF) a global, government-funded network providing open-access data on biodiversity.… Read More A Quarter of Known Bee Species Haven’t Been Seen Since 1990

He… Read More The Highest Resolution Photos Ever Taken of Snowflakes

Astronomers Have Discovered a Star That Survived Being Swallowed by a Black Hole

When black holes swallow down massive amounts of matter from the space around them, they’re not exactly subtle about it. They belch out tremendous flares of X-rays, generated by the material heating to intense temperatures as it’s sucked towards the black hole, so bright we can detect them from Earth. This is normal black hole behaviour. What… Read More Astronomers Have Discovered a Star That Survived Being Swallowed by a Black Hole
