  • Two Men Created “Leather” From Cactus to Save Animals and the Environment

    Two Men Created “Leather” From Cactus to Save Animals and the Environment

    As one of the world’s most traded products, leather is part of a booming $80 billion industry. But, its use of animal products and harsh chemicals makes leather problematic not only for animal rights activists but environmentalists. Luckily, two entrepreneurs from Mexico have worked to find a leather alternative that is not only eco-friendly but has the […]

  • Controversial Study Of Satellite Data Claims Covid-19 Was In Wuhan A Lot Earlier Than China Admitted

    Controversial Study Of Satellite Data Claims Covid-19 Was In Wuhan A Lot Earlier Than China Admitted

    A controversial study from Harvard Medical School, Boston University of Public Health, and Boston Children’s Hospital has claimed that Covid-19 may have been in Wuhan, China as early as August 2019, months before the first cluster of cases were reported to the World Health Organization in late December.  The virus was first linked to the Wuhan seafood market before later studies found […]

    Scientists Edited Human Embryos in the Lab, and It Was a Disaster

    The experiment raises major safety concerns for gene-edited babies A team of scientists has used the gene-editing technique CRISPR to create genetically modified human embryos in a London lab, and the results of the experiment do not bode well for the prospect of gene-edited babies. Biologist Kathy Niakan and her team at the Francis Crick […]

  • Plastic Rain Is the New Acid Rain

    Plastic Rain Is the New Acid Rain

    HOOF IT THROUGH the national parks of the western United States—Joshua Tree, the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon—and breathe deep the pristine air. These are unspoiled lands, collectively a great American conservation story. Yet an invisible menace is actually blowing through the air and falling via raindrops: Microplastic particles, tiny chunks (by definition, less than 5 millimeters long) […]

  • Dozens Of Octopuses Are Walking Up Onto Shore For No Apparent Reason

    Dozens Of Octopuses Are Walking Up Onto Shore For No Apparent Reason

    At the end of an ocean tour, Brett Stones, a guide for the dolphin-watching group SeaMor, saw something very strange with his evening expedition in Wales when they landed back on shore. It was a small, curled octopus that was crawling out of the ocean and making its way inland. When Stones and his group […]

  • How China Corrupted the World Health Organization’s Response to COVID-19

    How China Corrupted the World Health Organization’s Response to COVID-19

    The World Health Organization (WHO) put out questionable guidance on how to deal with the coronavirus, it was slow to communicate the magnitude of the threat, and it whitewashed the Chinese government’s early handling of the crisis. President Donald Trump, who put a hold on WHO funding yesterday, isn’t absolved of his own failures in confronting […]

  • Inside Wuhan’s shadowy coronavirus labs that create ‘super-viruses’ and conduct deadly experiments with infected bats

    Inside Wuhan’s shadowy coronavirus labs that create ‘super-viruses’ and conduct deadly experiments with infected bats

    THIS is the sinister truth behind Wuhan’s research labs – Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Wuhan Centre for Disease Control – which created man-made coronaviruses and where scientists were sprayed with bad blood. Last week, it emerged that the British government is “no longer discounting” theories Covid-19 was leaked from a laboratory in China – and […]

  • A chunk of Yellowstone the size of Chicago has been pulsing. Why?

    A chunk of Yellowstone the size of Chicago has been pulsing. Why?

    An injection of magma under Norris Geyser Basin may be why the region is five inches higher today than it was 20 years ago. In northwestern Wyoming, in the center of Yellowstone National Park, a bubbling caldera is the scar of a 640,000-year-old, gargantuan volcanic eruption. The 3,472-square-mile park encompassing the caldera is filled with geologic wonderlands of […]

  • Coronaviruses Similar to The COVID-19 One Have Just Been Found in Pangolins

    Coronaviruses Similar to The COVID-19 One Have Just Been Found in Pangolins

    A search for the ‘missing link’ in the chain of the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 has uncovered two close cousins of the new coronavirus in shipments of pangolins being smuggled into China. It’s important to note that the discovery by researchers from across Hong Kong and China falls well short of identifying these precious mammals as the source […]

  • Does The Coronavirus Make The Case For World Government?

    Does The Coronavirus Make The Case For World Government?

    Sometimes terrible things happen without any human malfeasance, and the novel Wuhan coronavirus may in fact be one of those things. It is entirely plausible the virus emerged from “wet markets” in the Hubei Province of China rather than as a fumbled (or worse, intentionally released) bioweapon cooked up by the Xi Jinping government.  We may never know, of […]
