For the first time ever, scientists have made a complete map of the “wood wide web,” the underground network of bacteria and fungi that connects trees and passes nutrients from the soil to their roots, as Science Magazine explained.
The paper, published in Nature Thursday, draws on a database of more than 1.1 million forest inventory plots including more than 28,000 species of trees in more than 70 countries.
Five years ago, in a landmark study, Kosmos described a growing ‘global transformation movement’ consisting of many smaller movements: climate justice, ecocide law, species protection and conservancy, indigenous solidarity, sacred ecology, transition towns and ecovillages, and many more. We predicted that each of these movements would organically develop self-awareness of the greater whole. And now many of these tributaries are merging, surging together as one great river.
13 American Gray Swans – Week 22 – Farm Apocalypse
Most Americans are not aware, and not paying attention to the Apocalypse happening to our farming industry. Unfortunately most will only get the wake-up call when there is no food. Understand, a perfect storm is not forming, it is already here.
It is not just one thing, but a multiple attack on our food production. But let us just review a few things before diving into the issues. The wealth of a country is measured in its Manufacturing, in its Natural Resources and Mining, and in its Agriculture and Farming.
The basic issue is very similar, if not quite the same, as the difference between acting as a peacekeeping official versus a law enforcement officer. In one capacity, you are acting lawfully and in the other you are acting legally.
The activities appear very similar, but are fundamentally different because they are being engaged in under totally different premises and different forms of law and different jurisdictions.
Clif High has a patent on computer-assisted reading technology which allows reading from computer screens at up to 2000 words per minute. Reaching into other areas of hidden potential within language use by humans, he has been developing a system of software internet agents (like search engines use) and other proprietary processing methods to predict future events. The software project, begun in 1997, captures near-real-time changes in language patterns within internet discussions. Then, employing radical linguistic techniques of his own devising, he develops a model which anticipates future events with some seeming accuracy. The processing has, at its core, a method of assigning emotional values to complex content and time carry-values to predict changes in future behavior based on how people are using language now.
Chinese Company Claims Its Hydrogen-Powered Vehicle Can Travel 500km Using Only Water As Fuel
A car company in Central China has claimed that it has built a hydrogen powered vehicle that’s capable of traveling up to 500km using only water as power, according to the South China Morning Post.
The vehicle was made by Qingnian Cars in Henan province and made its first drive on Wednesday of last week when local Communist Party chiefs visited the plant. The vehicle has reportedly not been tested over longer distances, but Ping Qingnian, the company’s CEO, said that it could go 300 to 500km using 300 to 400 liters of water as fuel.
Qingnian said: “The cost [of research and development] is a trade secret that I cannot reveal. We achieved this at a low cost, this is our company’s technology.”
