More Cool Science

New Scientist has a bunch of interesting mini-articles in today’s newsletter. And if you follow these links, you’ll see a lot of other interesting articles listed in the sidebars. Take a few minutes to browse; there’s some cool stuff.

Here’s a sampling:

Here’s one that’s more sobering than cool, but it deserves reading: Taking stock of Earth’s dwindling mineral wealth. (This one you can only read a partial of unless you’re a subscriber, but the partial is pretty interesting in itself.)

    Dwindling resources… In our current world of plenty, too many people have forgotten what it’s like to be without. I have a feeling that no matter when people start understanding the actual definition of a ‘limited resource’ it will be too late.

    This is a similar vein of thought with regards to limited natural resources.

    I read John Dvorak’s blog and this was posted today: Running the Numbers, an American Self-Portrait. It’s an art project that helps people visualize just how much humanity uses.
