The Manchin-Schumer Deal May Have Saved the Climate Fight

You are probably accustomed to hearing a lot of gloomy talk about the climate—and with good reason. Climate change threatens human lives and livelihoods at a scale perhaps unmatched by any other issue short of global thermonuclear war, and governments haven’t come anywhere close to adequately addressing it despite decades of efforts. The climate investment

Trump Says ‘Nobody Has Gotten to the Bottom of 9/11’ Ahead of Hosting Saudi-Backed LIV Golf Tournament

The Who song “I Can’t Explain” blared over the loudspeakers at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., on Thursday morning. It was a fitting selection, under the circumstances. Not all that long ago, it would have been almost unimaginable to find ourselves where we are today, in the world of golf (and the world

Concerns that the U.S. economy could be heading into a recession intensified after official figures released July 28 showed that the U.S. economy shrank for the second straight quarter, just days after the International Monetary Fund (IMF) forecast a global recession. Pierre-Olivier Gourinchas, the Economic Counsellor and the Director of Research of the IMF, cites

An approach to quantum key distribution based on high-quality quantum entanglement

Remarkably, quantum key distribution protocols such as the Bennett–Brassard scheme provide information-theoretic security. However, quantum protocols realized so far are subject to a new class of attacks exploiting a mismatch between the quantum states or measurements implemented and their theoretical modeling, as demonstrated in numerous experiments. For the first time, an international team of scientists

Ancient genomes from the herpes virus uncovered and sequenced for the first time

Human herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1), a life-long infection spread by oral contact, infects most adults globally. It commonly causes lip sores. Following primary infection, the virus becomes latent in sensory neurons. The virus can reactivate when triggered by psychological or physiological stress, resulting in recurrent labial lesions. The latest research by an international team

Earth’s ancient water cycle was key to making continents

Water is an essential ingredient in transforming primitive mantle-derived rocks into buoyant continental crust, thereby driving the irreversible differentiation of Earth’s lithosphere. A new Curtin University study has found that water was transported much deeper in the early Earth than previously thought, shedding new light on how the continents were originally formed. Lead researcher, Dr.

30 new deep-sea species discovered at the bottom of the Pacific Sea

Scientists from the Natural History Museum in the UK have discovered over 30 potentially new species living at the bottom of the sea. The new species were collected from the abyssal plains of the Clarion-Clipperton Zone in the central Pacific using a remotely operated vehicle (ROV). The Clarion-Clipperton Zone (CCZ) covers over five million square
