Regional nuclear war a risk for global food security

Even a limited nuclear war could have dangerous effects far beyond the region that is fatally hit. It would result in global cooling that substantially reduces agricultural production in the world's main breadbasket regions, from the US, to Europe, Russia, and China. The particular effect on food security worldwide including trade responses has now for the first time been revealed by an international team of scientists in a study based on advanced computer simulations.

One set of laws deals with unfair practices like China’s violations of American patents and support of state-owned industries. Those practices prompted US tariffs, which then prompted Chinese retaliatory tariffs last year.  A limited truce was announced January 15, but many tariffs still remain. Other laws are much broader, allowing the president to impose tariffs against imports, or sanctions ag...

Mars and the Pleiades

Two of the most popular sights in the night sky are teaming up right now — the planet Mars and the Pleiades star cluster. They’re due west as darkness falls, about a third of the way up the sky.
