  • China's verdant 'forest city' will fight pollution with a million plants

    China's verdant 'forest city' will fight pollution with a million plantsIf tree-covered skyscrapers act like enormous air filters, this cluster of buildings will be a clean air oasis. China has broken ground on a "forest city" in the southern city of Liuzhou. The development, which will span two-thirds of a mile along the Liujiang River, involves blanketing offices, apartments, hotels, and schools with more than a million plants and about 40,000 trees. SEE ALSO: How drones are helping to plant trees The verdant towers will help soak up urban air pollution, produce clean oxygen, and boost local biodiversity. The greenery also provides shade on sunny days and acts as an insulating blanket during winter, allowing tenants to use less heating and electricity. Liuzhou Forest City will span 175 hectares, or 0.67 miles, along the Liujiang River.Image: stefano boeri architettiIf the concept sounds familiar, that's because these buildings are the work of Stefano Boeri Architetti, the same architecture firm behind the two "vertical forest" buildings planned for Nanjing in eastern China.  Liuzhou city officials commissioned the Italian company to build the development, which will host about 30,000 people and be connected to the main Liuzhou city — population 3.8 million — via a fast-rail line used by electric cars. The forest city, now under construction, is expected to be completed by 2020, the Milan-based architects confirmed by email. 'Vertical forest' buildings in the Liuzhou development.Image: stefano boeri architettiThe development is a flashy but tiny effort to combat the dangerous smog and toxic air pollution that's choking China's industrialized cities. It comes as China is building more wind and solar power than any country in the world to slash emissions from coal plants, factories, and vehicles, and to combat climate change. Stefano Boeri's firm, which recently completed two verdant towers in Milan, is planning to expand into other smoggy cities, including China's Shijiazhuang, Guizhou, Shanghai, and Chongqing. In the Liuzhou Forest City, buildings, parks, and gardens will absorb almost 10,000 tons of carbon dioxide and 57 tons of fine dust pollutants per year, while producing about 900 tons of oxygen, the architects said in a press release.  By comparison, the two green towers in Nanjing will absorb 25 tons of carbon dioxide and produce 0.06 tons of oxygen.  An electric railway will link the 'forest city' to the main Liuzhou city.Image: stefano boeri architettiBeyond sucking up toxic air, the urban greenery is also expected to stifle noise pollution and support biodiversity by providing a habitat for the local birds, insects, and small animals that inhabit Liuzhou. The project will include residential areas, commercial and recreational spaces, plus two schools and a hospital. Along with plants, the buildings will also feature rooftop solar panels to produce clean electricity and use geothermal energy systems for interior air-conditioning. Stefano Boeri Architetti said the Liuzhou Forest City represents its broader effort to design a "new generation" of architecture and urban environments to address climate change.

  • Two U.S. studies differ over effects of marijuana on drivers

    Two U.S. studies differ over effects of marijuana on drivers(This June 22 story has been refiled to correct study author's name to "Aydelotte" instead of "Adedoyte" in third paragraph.) By Taylor Harris (Reuters) - Two U.S. studies on the effects of marijuana on drivers in states where it is allowed for recreational use came to different conclusions about whether it increases risks behind the wheel. A study by the American Journal of Public Health published on Thursday looked at motor vehicle fatalities and found no significant increase in Colorado and Washington State, where recreational marijuana use is legal, compared with eight states where it is not legal that have similar populations, vehicle ownership, and traffic laws. “Our study focused on deaths and actually found what we expected going into this," Jason Aydelotte, lead author of the study said in a telephone interview.

  • Pilot begs passengers to pray as malfunction causes jet to shake violently

    Pilot begs passengers to pray as malfunction causes jet to shake violently

    During the normal course of a commercial plane trip, you might never actually hear the pilot's voice at all. If you do, it's typically to thank you for flying or a quick update on the estimated arrival time, but on a recent AirAsia X flight from Perth, Australia to Malaysia, passengers were treated to something quite different. After an engine malfunction caused the entire plane to begin to shake violently while in the air, the pilot took to the intercom to urge the 359 souls on board to pray for their lives and safe landing of the aircraft.

    The flight, which was headed for Kuala Lumpur, took to the skies at around 6:40 local time and flew for over an hour without issue. It was then that the passengers reported hearing a loud bang, followed by an uncontrollable shaking of the entire plane. The airline has classified it as simply a "technical issue," but in the multiple videos passengers posted to social media it's clear that the situation was extremely frightening.

    https://www.instagram.com/p/BVv9kMug7Fq/

    "I thought I might die," one passenger posted to Instagram, along with a video of the incident.

    The plane, an Airbus A330, managed to make an about-face and return to the Perth airport without further incident. The airline and safety regulators are currently investigating the malfunction, and the pilot was applauded for his efforts.

  • Sea level rise is accelerating, with Greenland in leading role

    Sea level rise is accelerating, with Greenland in leading roleGlobal sea level rise is accelerating as the Greenland Ice Sheet sheds more of its ice, scientists have found.  Given this quickening pace, it's possible that by the end of this century, sea level rise could threaten coastal communities around the world, from Miami to Mumbai.  A new study, published Monday in the journal Nature Climate Change, is one of a few recent works to confirm an acceleration in sea level rise during the past few decades. There had been greater uncertainty about this before, with climate deniers latching onto that and arguing that such an acceleration has not, in fact, been occurring. SEE ALSO: Trump to mayor of sinking island: Don't worry about sea level rise However, by using calculations of the various contributing factors to sea level rise, such as melting ice sheets, water expansion that occurs as the oceans warm, and other factors, researchers from institutions in China, Australia, and the U.S. found that global mean sea level increased from about 2.2 millimeters per year in 1993 to 3.3 millimeters per year in 2014.  July 30, 2013 in Qaqortoq, Greenland.Image: Joe Raedle/Getty ImagesWhile that may seem tiny, the numbers add up quickly. These rate changes are the difference between a decadal sea level rise rate of 0.86 inches and 1.29 inches, with greater acceleration expected in the future.  The findings also made clear how major contributors to sea level rise have been changing over time. And it doesn't paint a pretty picture.  Whereas global ice mass loss constituted 50 percent of sea level rise in 1993, this rose to 70 percent in 2014. The study found that the largest increase came from the Greenland Ice Sheet, which made up just 5 percent of the global mean sea level rise rate in 1993, and now constitutes 25 percent of it.  Given scientists' concerns about Antarctica's stability, look for melting glaciers to comprise an even greater share of the sea level rise budget in the near future. Sea level is accelerating! and largest change is coming from increased mass flux of Greenland ice sheet. Now contributes 25% of annual rise. — Chris Harig (@chrisharig) June 26, 2017 The sea level rise rates we expect over next 100 years are several times what the Dutch dealt with in the last 500 years of dike building. — Chris Harig (@chrisharig) June 26, 2017 A different study published in early June found the rate of sea level rise just about tripled between 1990 and 2012.  A study published in 2016 found that if global warming continues above 2 degrees Celsius, or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, above preindustrial levels through 2100, then sea levels would end up rising faster than at any time during human civilization. That study found that in a warming scenario of 5 degrees Celsius, or 9 degrees Fahrenheit, which is roughly the path we’re on now, New York City could see more than a meter, or about 3.6 feet, of sea level rise with an even higher upper limit. This would make a Hurricane Sandy-sized storm surge far more common in the city. A separate study published in February found that current rates of sea level rise are likely unprecedented in at least the past 2,800 years. This week's findings are in line with NASA's estimate for the current rate of sea level rise, which is 3.4 millimeters per year.  Calved icebergs from the nearby Twin Glaciers are seen floating on the water on July 30, 2013 in Qaqortoq, Greenland.Image: Joe Raedle/Getty ImagesThe significance of the new study is that it resolves lingering uncertainties about mismatches between what scientists know about contributors to sea level rise, and measured rates from satellites. This study, along with other recent work, shows the two match up closely, and it nails down the sea level rise acceleration.  Also, the new research shows that coastal communities that are already struggling with increased flooding on an annual basis, such as Miami Beach, will have to cope with a rapidly worsening situation in coming decades.  For every millimeter that the local sea level rises, the easier it becomes for the ocean to hit previously unheard of flood levels. Storm surges ride on top of background sea levels, and like a basketball player playing on a court with a steadily rising floor, even weaker storms are becoming more likely to score a slam dunk.  WATCH: It's official, 2016 was Earth's warmest year on record

  • 'Anonymous' says NASA has found alien life, but let's all slow the hell down

    'Anonymous' says NASA has found alien life, but let's all slow the hell downThe shadowy hacker collective Anonymous believes that NASA is about to announce that it has discovered alien life of some kind.  We've looked into these claims and concluded they are, at best, a bone-headed misunderstanding of  mundane statements from a NASA official in April, or, at worst, a bold-faced lie playing all of us for clicks.  Either way, it's not worth our time to fully debunk or yours to deeply consider.

Sea levels have risen by about 20 cms in the past century and many scientific studies project a steady acceleration this century as man-made global warming melts more ice on land. The study found that early satellite data had exaggerated the rate of sea level rise in the 1990s, masking the recent acceleration.
