    Will water stress lead to the next big war?

    Will water stress lead to the next big war?

    Cape Town 2017-18. The scary episode of Water stress. Reservoirs and dams in the South African western cape were hovering between 15-30% of their capacity. There was a widespread fear of an imminent water-stress induced doomsday, designated as ‘day zero’ when all municipal supply would cease, and people would have to queue up in order to receive their water ration. The administration implemented severe restrictions and penalties and eventually the water level in the dams rose to 70% capacity. The country heaved a sigh of collective relief. But not forever.

    The plan to turn half the world into a reserve for nature.

    The plan to turn half the world into a reserve for nature.

    As mankind expands its dominion over nature, it is clearing and polluting the environment, burning forests, contaminating the oceans, and threatening other species. At the same time, an increasing number of influential scientists and environmentalists support the proposal that half of the earth's surface be transformed into a nature reserve. The measure would be necessary for the planet to continue to be habitable in the future.

    A Unique Home

    A Unique Home

    Resting at the top of a mountain with a crystal blue lake nestled at the foot would be my dream home in the perfect location. To access the house, there would be a 30' driveway that would lead to a garage door. The garage would be inside of the mountain, so that vehicles going by would never know that someone was lived in the area.

    Solving Climate Change

    David Whitaker plugged in his new Samsung Galaxy S9 into his phone charger, thinking it may be the last chance he got to charge his phone for a few days. Ever since the Australian Government introduced its latest Green Scheme back home, its cuts to greenhouse emissions were being felt in all Australian owned territories, including Mawson Research Station at the South Pole. I mean here they were in the South Pole, one of the coldest places on the planet, and the Australian Government wanted to make sure they weren’t contributing to the global warming phenomenon sweeping the globe.

    What Happens When The Earth's Magnetic Field reverses It's Polarity?

    What Happens When The Earth's Magnetic Field reverses It's Polarity?

    From time to time, one reads about new signs that we are currently in the middle of a reversal period of the magnetic poles of our earth. Every new message about it immediately calls the catastrophe theorists and end-time prophets on the scene. Scientists, who deny the topic any explosiveness, are speaking out against these. So where's the truth now? Do we have to worry, or may we sit back and relax?
