Robber fly - Nature photographer Thomas Shahan specializes in amazing portraits of tiny insects. It isn't easy. Shahan says that this Robber Fly (Holcocephala fusca), for instance, is "skittish" and doesn't like its picture taken.

“… 4 - Energy (again)

The natural resources of the planet are finite and will not support the continuation of what you've been doing. We've been saying this for a decade. Watch for increased science and increased funding for alternate ways of creating electricity (finally). Watch for the very companies who have the most to lose being the ones who fund it. It is the beginning of a full realization that a change of thinking is at hand. You can take things from Gaia that are energy, instead of physical resources. We speak yet again about geothermal, about tidal, about wind. Again, we plead with you not to over-engineer this. For one of the things that Human Beings do in a technological age is to over-engineer simple things. Look at nuclear - the most over-engineered and expensive steam engine in existence!

Your current ideas of capturing energy from tidal and wave motion don't have to be technical marvels. Think paddle wheel on a pier with waves, which will create energy in both directions [waves coming and going] tied to a generator that can power dozens of neighborhoods, not full cities. Think simple and decentralize the idea of utilities. The same goes for wind and geothermal. Think of utilities for groups of homes in a cluster. You won't have a grid failure if there is no grid. This is the way of the future, and you'll be more inclined to have it sooner than later if you do this, and it won't cost as much….”

Obama unveils landmark regulations to combat climate change
In a bid to combat climate change, US President Barack Obama announced the Clean Power Plan on Monday, marking the first time power plants have been targeted by mandatory regulations on carbon dioxide emissions in the US.

First land plants may have plunged the Earth into a series of ice ages

The spread of early terrestrial plants would have reduced atmospheric carbon and cooled the planet, say scientists, Ian Sample, science correspondent, Wednesday 1 February 2012

The first plants to take root on dry land may have cooled the Earth enough to bring on a series of ice ages, scientists claim.

As plants spread across the continents, they extracted minerals from the rocks they clung to and drew down levels of atmospheric carbon, causing temperatures to drop markedly, the researchers say.

The scenario explains puzzling glaciations that saw ice sheets advance in the Ordovician period between 488m and 444m years ago. At the time, Earth's continents were clustered over the south pole and stretched as far north as the equator.

Writing in the journal Nature Geoscience, a team led by Timothy Lenton at ExeterUniversity describes experiments to investigate the environmental impact of Earth's first land plants. They took rocks and covered some with moss to mimic the simple plant life that thrived in the Ordovician, then incubated them for three months.

The experiments at the John Innes Centre in Norwich revealed how plant life might have altered the planet's geochemistry enough to make temperatures plunge and usher in a period of glaciations.

As the plants grew, they dissolved silicate rocks, such as granite, to release calcium and magnesium ions. These ions combine with atmospheric carbon and wash into oceans where they precipitate as carbonate rocks. This process alone might have caused temperatures to fall by around five degrees Celsius.

In another process, plants extracted phosphorus and iron from rocks, but as the plants died these elements would have found their way to the sea. The rise in nutrients there was likely to have fuelled the growth of plankton, microscopic creatures that sequester carbon as they grow and ultimately carry it to the seabed when they die, where it forms rock.

The scientists assumed that 15% of the Earth's land mass was covered with early plant life, but even with 5% land coverage, the cooling effect would have been substantial, Lenton said.

"Although plants are still cooling the Earth's climate by reducing the atmospheric carbon levels, they cannot keep up with the speed of today's human-induced climate change," Lenton said. "It would take millions of years for plants to remove current carbon emissions from the atmosphere."

Liam Dolan, a plant scientist at Oxford University who worked with Lenton, said the invasion of the land by plants was a pivotal time in the history of the planet that brought about huge climate changes. "Our discovery emphasises that plants have a central regulatory role in the control of climate: they did yesterday, they do today, and they certainly will in the future."
