Images Of The Year 2018 –
99 images that made news throughout 2018 presented by Reuters. WARNING, some of these images show graphic content.

Rocking Video –

You Gotta Be Kidding Me –
As if the glaciers weren’t melting fast enough, Scientific American just published an article that says the water flowing from the glacier melt contains methane (a greenhouse gas). “Methane hot spots beneath the world’s glaciers are a relatively new – and still uncertain – area of investigation.” – Chelsea Harvey, ClimateWire on January 3, 2019.
Learn more about what they are discovering about microorganisms chowing down on long-dead (and once frozen) plants and animals under our world’s glaciers. Click here.
Something I learned This Week –
Best strategies for keeping your house warm during the winter. I never thought of turning my house into a “vertical heater”, but after reading this article, it makes sense. Don’t forget the warm layers and hot chocolate. Yum! Thanks Popsci.com Enjoy, click here.
