[Best Syndication] A new website will be launched that will detail all of Earth’s species. This site will account for over 1.8 million known living creatures, which is quite a big undertaking. The good news is that the website will be available for everyone to access.

The website is called the Encyclopedia of Life. The open ended Wikipedia inspired website will allow amateurs to post their own sightings of the species. There will be species descriptions that will include photos, maps, video footage, and audio representations. There will also be access to the Biodiversity Heritage Library which is being digitized and made freely available at http://bhl.si.edu/ . Currently there are 306 titles that are already available.

(Best Syndication) Researchers in the United Kingdom say that the Mass Extinction Event (MEE) that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago did not prompt the rapid rise of the mammals on earth today. This contradicts accepted theory, and the researchers say that mammals began to “radiate” out about the time of a sudden increase in the temperature of the planet.

The temperature increase did not occur until ten million years after the extinction of the dinosaurs (the MEE). Today’s mammal ancestors were still not well evolved at that time. Professor Andy Purvis from Imperial College London's Division of Biology explains: "Our research has shown that for the first 10 or 15 million years after the dinosaurs were wiped out, present day mammals kept a very low profile, while these other types of mammals were running the show.”

New Technology Converts Garbage Into Energy – Trash Can Be Used TO Create Electricity -Converts Hazardous Waste To Safe Material

New Technology Converts Garbage Into Energy – Trash Can Be Used TO Create Electricity -Converts Hazardous Waste To Safe Material

(Best Syndication) A company in Connecticut says they have a developed a system of converting garbage into energy. The machine is similar to what Dr. Emmett Brown (played by Christopher Lloyd) in “Back to the Future” used to power his car, except bigger.

The Startech Environmental Corporation’s solution may help solve two problems – trash collecting in landfills and our energy problem. The process does not involve burning the garbage, but uses plasma energy to break the molecular bonds of the material without producing any pollution. The bi-products include various non-hazardous substances ready for “commercial use”.

Richard Branson announced today that he will pay a $25 million prize for the first person to invent a method to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. By removing the carbon dioxide from the atmosphere it would hopefully change to course of global warming.

Along with Branson was former U.S. Vice President, Al Gore, to help spread the word. Gore has been spreading his global warming recently in the documentary film, “An Inconvenient Truth.”

The prize being offered will hopefully spur the inventions that will turn around the global warming. Branson revealed the Virgin Earth Challenge by saying, "Man created the problem and therefore man should solve the problem."
