Battery Development: Electricity Storage of the Future Last Updated on 2017-10-18 20:20:52 We have long relied on batteries for powering small electronic devices.  However, battery technology has evolved far past the AAAs we still use, and hold significant promise for transforming our present into a sustainable future.   Among the many places that battery technology is changing is for electric and hybrid vehicles.  For example, research is underway that shows semisolid fuel cell batteries hold significant advantages over current lithium ion battery designs – once the bugs are worked out.  Should today’s research be fully implemented, lithium ion batteries could hold over ten times as much energy.  Even further in the future, when battery development moves past lithium, the potential is greater still. The implications of advanced vehicle battery designs are potentially monumental.  If and when battery technology matures to the point... More »
Republicans and anti-science ignorance: Nature editorial Last Updated on 2017-01-16 08:09:51 Nature, the science magazine, wrote a scathing editorial in 2011, called Into Ignorance. It describes the increasingly anti-science Republican attitude exhibited in pushing their bill to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse-gas emissions, which the agency declared on the basis of reliable scientific evidence to be a threat to public welfare in 2009. The Science editorial says: "...Republicans on the House of Representatives' energy and commerce committee have made clear their disdain for climate science. At a subcommittee hearing on 14 March, anger and distrust were directed at scientists and respected scientific societies. Misinformation was presented as fact, truth was twisted and nobody showed any inclination to listen to scientists, let alone learn from them." Republicans increasingly rely on pseudo-scientific fallacies... More »
