(Columbia-AP) September 15, 2005 - Toyota will work with the Savannah River National Lab near Aiken to develop hydrogen fuel storage systems for cars.

The automaker is putting $2 million into the project during the next two years.

The Savannah River Site had a key role in manufacturing the nations nuclear weapons and remains the nation's only site processing tritium, a radioactive form of hydrogen. The site has stored hydrogen for 50 years.

One goal of the project is to develop lighter materials that cost less and store hydrogen more efficiently for cars. The other part of the project will work on ways reduce the affect air and moisture have on hydrogen storage materials.

The work will be done just outside the Savannah River Site at a new Center for Hydrogen Research.

Plenty's hurricane relief efforts [Sep. 3rd, 2005|10:53 pm]
Lj's ONLY Earth Changes Community

Plenty may be the organization that will get the most mileage out of small donations:

In all fairness there is more than enough to go around...
http://www.plenty.org/

From its headquarters in southern Tennessee, Plenty International is sending relief supplies, food, water and medicines, to refugees from the hurricane Katrina battered Delta regions in Louisiana. A volunteer from California has flown out to Nashville and purchased a full-size school bus which is being stocked with supplies for the first run which is headed to Alexandria, Louisiana. Besides bringing in much needed supplies, the bus will be able to transport people from over-crowded temporary quarters to better and more permanent facilities such as the college dorms and homes that are being offered. We will continue to make these bus runs as long as we can and they are needed.

We are targeting the people who inevitably are falling through the cracks of the larger scale relief efforts being mounted by such agencies as the National Guard, FEMA and the Red Cross.

This is one of those disasters that has been predicted for many years, but now that it has come crashing down, it's difficult to comprehend the human devastation. All we can do is open our hearts and our wallets and extend our hands and reach out to the innocent victims and help them, first just to survive, and then put their lives back together.

Climate change sceptics bet $10,000 on cooler world [Aug. 18th, 2005|10:01 pm]

Russian pair challenge UK expert over global warming

David Adam, science correspondent
Friday August 19, 2005
The Guardian
http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,3604,1552092,00.html

Two climate change sceptics, who believe the dangers of global warming are overstated, have put their money where their mouth is and bet $10,000 that the planet will cool over the next decade.

The Russian solar physicists Galina Mashnich and Vladimir Bashkirtsev have agreed the wager with a British climate expert, James Annan.

The pair, based in Irkutsk, at the Institute of Solar-Terrestrial Physics, believe that global temperatures are driven more by changes in the sun's activity than by the emission of greenhouse gases. They say the Earth warms and cools in response to changes in the number and size of sunspots. Most mainstream scientists dismiss the idea, but as the sun is expected to enter a less active phase over the next few decades the Russian duo are confident they will see a drop in global temperatures. read on...Collapse )

ARTICLE: Ozone Levels Drop When Hurricanes Are Strengthening [Jun. 13th, 2005|01:31 am]
Lj's ONLY Earth Changes Community

siannaskye
Scientists are continually exploring different aspects of hurricanes to increase the understanding of how they behave. Recently, NASA-funded scientists from Florida State University looked at ozone around hurricanes and found that ozone levels drop as a hurricane is intensifying.

In a recent study, Xiaolei Zou and Yonghui Wu, researchers at Florida State University found that variations of ozone levels from the surface to the upper atmosphere are closely related to the formation, intensification and movement of a hurricane.

They studied ozone levels in 12 hurricanes and looked at total ozone levels, that is, from the ground to the upper atmosphere. Now scientists have clues on how a hurricane behaves when the ozone levels are high and low.
