Editors Corner

Have you ever left a room, knowing you'd be back soon, and wondered whether you should turn the light off, or leave it on? Apparently this decision is best made based upon 2 factors: the kind of bulb(s) being used, and how long you'll be gone. Click here

Did you know that there is a crowdfunding campaign to restore Nikola Tesla's Wardenclyffe lab as a museum? The Tesla Science Center, with help from Matthew Inman (of the popular web comic "The Oatmeal"), has launched the crowdfunding campaign "Buy a Brick". Click here

Speaking of preserving things, did you know that there is now an American national park that is twice the size of Texas? If you're thinking many acres of grass and/or trees, you'd be wrong. It's actually 470,000 square miles of ocean around a couple of remote Pacific islands. Click here

That's about it from me for this week. Don't forget to support our advertisers.

Solar cell powers water-to-hydrogen conversion
A class of materials that has quickly become the rising star of the solar cell world could enable production of hydrogen fuel using sunlight. Michael Grätzel, a chemist at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland, and colleagues built a photovoltaic device using cheap and abundant materials called perovskites. In the Sept. 26 Science, Grätzel’s group describes a device that uses sunlight to split water into oxygen and hydrogen gas with 12.3 percent efficiency. That figure puts the device above the 10 percent benchmark for useful solar-to-hydrogen conversion. Hydrogen holds promise as clean fuel to power cars or produce electricity. Over the last five years, perovskites have been found to rival the efficiency and cost of silicon in converting sunlight to electricity. Grätzel’s team created its device using perovskite cells and a catalyst made from nickel, iron, oxygen and hydrogen. Perovskite photovoltaics also generate higher voltages than silicon cells, making them better at powering the water-splitting reaction.

Can farmers outsmart climate change?
Attention, farmers of the world! Here’s a question for you: How do you feed a world with 9 billion people? Furthermore, how will you do so while facing hotter seasons, droughts, weirder weather, and water shortages? That’s a mighty tall order, but let me assure you: There is work underway to plan for this overwhelming future. It’s called climate-smart agriculture, and if you haven’t heard of it already, here’s what you need to know. Climate-smart agriculture (CSA, not to be confused with, CSAs) is the idea that farmers — along with their friends with money and agriculture/climate science knowledge — should develop and use technologies that work with the ever-changing climate, not against it. Why? Well, to put it simply, so that climate change doesn’t completely disrupt our food system forcing us all to go hungry.

Something Worth Knowing

When Should You Turn Off The Lights? It Depends on These 2 Things.
Should you turn off the light every time you leave the room? It depends on two simple things:

1) What kind of bulb you’re using. Bulbs relying on old-fashioned technology use a lot more energy than newer models like LEDs. You might have a mix of bulbs in your house, so it’s helpful to know which ones need more TLC than others.

2) How long you’ll be gone. Obviously, if you’re leaving your home for the day, wrapping up work in your office for the night, or departing on a holiday, you’ll want to turn all the lights off, no matter what kind of bulb you have. But what if you’re just leaving your desk for lunch or dinner, or running out to the store for some milk? On, or off?

Monsanto GMO wheat contamination discovered in Montana
Monsanto’s experimental genetically modified wheat has been discovered growing in the second US field in Montana, about a year after the discovery of the company’s unapproved crop growing in Oregon disrupted US wheat exports. Monsanto’s experimental genetically modified wheat has been discovered growing in a second field in Montana, about a year after the discovery of the company’s unapproved crop growing in Oregon disrupted US wheat exports. The plants were discovered at a test site at Montana State University, where back in 2000-2003 Monsanto was conducting field trials of its wheat, genetically modified to tolerate Roundup herbicide. Although the government believes the wheat never reached market, it has still opened an investigation into finding the rogue plants at a site that was not supposed to host any tests after 2003, USDA's Department of Agriculture’s Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service announced on Friday. “We’ve now opened an investigation into this regulatory compliance issue,” said Bernadette Juarez, director of investigative and enforcement services for APHIS, adding however that “there are no safety issues with this wheat.”

GMO-free cereal? Middle America shrugs
It’s starting to look like the average eater doesn’t care about GMOs. At the very beginning of 2014, General Mills announced that it was making its original Cheerios without any genetically engineered ingredients. Back then, I wrote:
The company said it’s not responding to pressure; rather, it’s interested in the possibility that customers might “embrace” (i.e. buy more) GM-free Cheerios. Even if that’s true, activists may have rallied enough interest to get General Mills’ attention, and I suspect that the company wants to try labeling as an experiment. Will a non-GM label increase sales? Will customers pay a higher price? The answers to these questions will be valuable to the company in planning for the possibility of labeling laws.
So what data is this experiment generating? Well, in March, General Mills said that it had gotten a lot of positive publicity but so far had seen no increase in sales. That was too short a window of time to reach any conclusions; I wanted to wait and see what happened.

America’s newest national park is twice the size of Texas and underwater
It’s official — that massively and unprecedentedly HUGE marine reserve Obama announced back in June is now a reality. The announcement came on Thursday morning that 470,000 square miles of ocean around a couple of remote Pacific islands will be formally set aside as a national marine monument — aptly named the Pacific Remote Islands National Marine Monument. Though smaller than the nearly 800,000 square miles included in the original expansion plan, this is still six times larger than the 87,000 square mile reserve originally established by George W. Bush. Or, more evocatively, twice the size of Texas. Yeah, TEXAS. That means you could drive for two days and not come across any deep-sea mining or commercial fishing in these productive marine habitats — especially no more tuna fishing. Pacific bluefin tuna are struggling, thanks to their delicious, delicious flesh and a lack of strong international fishing agreements. By setting aside so much ocean as tuna timeout areas, the U.S. may actually stand a chance of saving some fish for the future.

Tesla Museum Sparks 'Buy a Brick' Crowdfunding Campaign
Your dollars could quite literally pave the way to a Nikola Tesla museum. A group that's restoring the inventor's Wardenclyffe lab in Shoreham, New York, is selling engraved bricks to fund a museum at the site. With help from Matthew Inman — the man behind the popular Web comic "The Oatmeal" — the Tesla Science Center launched the crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo yesterday (Sept. 24). The cheapest personalized bricks are being sold for $125, and $1,200 will get you a four-brick array. The organizers set a goal of raising $200,000 by Nov. 8. But lucky for them, Tesla, though he's been dead for more than 70 years, has a fervent fan base. As of this afternoon (Sept. 25), the campaign had pulled in more than $130,000. "Isn't this fantastic?" Jane Alcorn, president of the Tesla Science Center, told Live Science in an email. "Over 30 countries so far will be represented by contributors to the brick campaign." The group says $200,000 will be enough to make some crucial improvements and repairs to Tesla's red brick lab (which also has the distinction of being architect Stanford White's last project before he was murdered.)
