At least 14 dead in Alabama tornado, toll expected to rise

"The challenge is the sheer volume of the debris where all the homes were located," Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones said in an interview with CNN.

Australia planning to import LNG: What's next? Coals to Newcastle?

Five LNG import projects are vying to start up between 2021 and 2022, possibly forcing gas users in New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria into more direct competition with Asian buyers for gas from northern Australia. Piping gas from Queensland in northern Australia to southern markets is expensive, making LNG imports potentially viable. "Based on the five proposals to date, Australia now appears to be planning to overbuild LNG import capacity in response to an overbuild of L...

Environmentalist Shreds Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal: ‘This Would Mean Removing All Water Vapor’

According to a recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the human race has just 12 years to curb carbon emissions before climate change becomes an irreversible, catastrophic event. The Republican Party usually denies the existence of climate problems. But their rivals in the Democratic Party claim to understand it. However, they have done very little when it comes to offering a solution. The last time Democrats did anything substantial was in 2o09 when they pushed a bill...

Ice Age: Return of the Mammoth review: remarkable discoveries that feel like a Jurassic Park sideshow

With its spectacular mullet of hair, the woolly mammoth was like the Chris Waddle of the Ice Age, but the ancient beast vanished from Earth 10,000 years ago. And while you might think that we’ve seen the last of the shaggy herbivore, it is, rather startlingly, about to make a comeback.  Ice Age: Return of the Mammoth (Channel 4) was an attempt to explain how, but not so much why. Deep in the Arctic Circle, a group of scientists enter a set of tunnels wherein lies a cemetery of perfectly preserve...

Scientists gave mice infrared vision, but could they do the same for humans?

Mice are already masters of lurking in the shadows, well out of sight of prying human eyes, but researchers in the U.S. and China just turned a few of them into serious superheroes. The mice, which are normally equipped with eyes capable only of seeing visible light, like us humans, have instead been given the ability to see near infrared light, effectively allowing them to see in the dark.By injecting specially designed nanoparticles directly into the eyes of the mice, the animals exhibited the...

Egypt rescues 2,000-year old catacombs from rising water

Egypt on Sunday announced the completion of a project to save famed 2,000-year old catacombs in the costal city of Alexandria from rising waters.

The rising water prompted Egypt to launch a massive drainage project supported by the United States Agency for International (USAID) in 2017.
