Sunset over the Arizona desert Shutterstock At 2 a.m. ET on November 1, Americans will "fall back" by moving their clocks an hour earlier for daylight-saving time.  The common wisdom about daylight-saving time is that it's about farming, but it's not. The history of daylight-saving time goes back to World War I, when it was thought to save energy.  Today, most of the US, with the exception of Hawaii, Arizona, and many US territories, recognizes daylight-saving time.

A Rare Trump-Era Climate Policy Hits an Obstacle: The Tax Man

WASHINGTON -- A rare policy enacted under President Donald Trump to address climate change has run into an unexpected hurdle: the tax man.In 2018, Congress approved a lucrative tax break for companies that use carbon capture technology to trap carbon dioxide produced by industrial sites before the gas escapes into the atmosphere and heats the planet. The technology is still costly and contentious, but may one day become a valuable tool for slowing global warming. House Republicans are aiming to ...

Eyebrow-raising extinction study goes public, but co-author says it’s just the start

After days of puzzling over secondhand reports, anyone with an internet connection can now read a research paper about a fossil graveyard in North Dakota that appears to document the day nearly 66 million years ago when an asteroid pushed the dinosaurs and many other species into extinction.

Fossils tell story of day meteor struck Earth

The impact of the Chicxulub asteroid 66 million years ago left a massive crater and triggered the mass extinction of land and sea creatures. DePalma has been digging for the past seven years at a site in North Dakota that he and other scientists believe provides a unique fossilized record of what happened on that day. "You almost never get this opportunity at fine tuning the timing of any event in geologic history," DePalma said in an interview with AFP.
