We discuss and comment on the role agriculture will play in the containment of the CO2 problem and address protocols for terraforming the planet Earth.
A model farm template is imagined as the central methodology. A broad range of timely science news and other topics of interest are commented on.

Colosseum Shut As Heavy Snowfall Hits Rome
Perhaps it was time and perhaps
it was Europe’s turn to be strongly reminded
that the climate is quite able to mix up a nasty spate of lousy weather.It can do this without a serious volcano,
although we must not forget Iceland
They have been getting snowed in,
in Serbia and the temperatures
are awful in Russia.Yet that was true during the first couple of
years of WWII also.
The fact remains that Europe is
at a high latitude that would otherwise mimic the Canadian Prairies and the
American Midwest, but for the input of the Gulf Stream.
Thus all that is needed to ruin
your winter in Europe is to have the climate
conspire to redirect the warm air away for a while.We get a taste of that in the Pacific North
West were we are warmed in the winter months be the Pineapple Express from Hawaii.If we had no mountains, the European weather
of the coast would do inland for a thousand miles.
The weather reality is that the
climate is able to run a wide range of powerful working scenarios and some
years we have to be unlucky.
America is having a fair enough winter this year and last year we
got blown away.Perhaps it was Europe’s turn
I remained very concerned that we
may still get a serious Icelandic eruption that chills the Arctic
and dumps us into a string of bad winters we could do without.
