Opinion| Goals and fundamental gaps of 2022 UN climate conference COP 27

Human-caused emissions, primarily from the combustion of fossil fuels like coal, oil, and gas, are to blame for global warming. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which is comprised of climate scientists from the UN, global temperatures have increased by 1.1˚C and are on track to reach 1.5˚C. The IPCC predicts that half of humanity might be exposed to heat and humidity that pose a threat to life if temperatures increase by 1.7˚ to 1.8˚C above values of the 1850s.

Ancient bacteria might lurk beneath Mars’ surface

These findings strengthen the possibility that if life ever evolved on Mars, its biological remains might be revealed in future missions, including ExoMars (Rosalind Franklin rover) and the Mars Life Explorer, which will carry drills to extract materials from 2 meters below the surface.

Heated tobacco products: How are they different from conventional cigarettes?

Scientific research studies confirm the harmful effects of smoking conventional cigarettes on human health and stress that the process of burning tobacco in a cigarette is the primary cause of smoking-related diseases. Hence, in the past 15 years, researchers across the world examined innovative approaches and alternative products that have the ability to reduce the …

A NASA spacecraft intentionally slammed into an asteroid on Monday in a test to protect Earth in case of an asteroid impact threat. The agency’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) probe carried out the first-of-its-kind manoeuvre on a small space rock known as Dimorphos, about 11 million km from Earth. The impact took place at …

Tiny algae could help fix concrete’s dirty little climate secret – 4 innovative ways to clean up this notoriously hard to decarbonize industry

Humans produce more concrete than any other material on the planet. It is the literal foundation of modern civilization – and for good reason. Concrete is strong, durable, affordable and available to almost every community on the planet. However, the global concrete industry has a dirty little secret – it alone is responsible for more …

Molecular brain changes linked to main susceptibility gene for Alzheimer’s disease

Molecular brain changes linked to main susceptibility gene for Alzheimer’s disease

A new study from the Keck School of Medicine of USC, published on Tuesday in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, adds a crucial piece to that puzzle. It documents in real time that APOE4, the main susceptibility gene for Alzheimer’s disease, leads to molecular changes in the brain’s blood vessels, which are then followed by changes in the synapses that connect brain cells.

Poor heart health predicts premature brain ageing

Poor heart health predicts premature brain ageing

A higher brain age was associated with slightly worse scores on cognitive tests, and also predicted increased brain shrinkage (atrophy) over the following two years, suggesting it could be an important clinical marker for people at risk of cognitive decline or other brain-related ill health.
