LiveScience reported –

The normally barren, almost Martian landscape of the Atacama Desert recently erupted in flowers, painting the hillsides, blue, fuschia, orange and yellow.

Mysterious New Crater Found In Siberia

russian-craterNPR reports –

The area of Russia is said to be called, ominously enough, the end of the world. And that’s where researchers are headed this week, to investigate a large crater whose appearance reportedly caught scientists by surprise. The crater is estimated at 262 feet wide and is in the northern Siberian area of Yamal.

The canyon – which is 800km long and up to 800m deep – was carved out by a great river more than four million years ago, before the ice arrived.

The British Antarctic Survey said it was remarkable to find so huge a geographical feature previously unseen. The hidden valley is longer than the Grand Canyon in Arizona. It snakes its way from the centre of Greenland up to the northern coastline and before the ice sheet was formed it would have contained a river gushing into the Arctic Ocean. Now it is packed with ice.

Predictions From Earth Day 1970

This short article presents a few of ridiculous predictions from 1970. Back then the ecology and climate experts missed the future by a mile. A couple of the better ones –

“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation.”
• Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day

“The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.”
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist
