Individualized climate control for burns victims in hospitals might not only improve comfort for such patients, but improve working conditions for those taking care of them, research suggests. In addition, it could cut energy requirements by three quarters where cooling is needed and by up to a quarter where heating is used.
The vast majority of scientists and researchers in the United States and throughout the world agree that manmade emissions are likely exacerbating climate change. Despite U.S. news articles to the contrary, since 2007 no scientific body has disagreed with this position. read more
In a long-term analysis conducted across several sites in the eastern United States, a team of researchers found that local factors -- from levels of fungal colonization to the specific physical locations of the wood -- play a far greater role than climate in wood decomposition rates and the subsequent impacts on regional carbon cycling.
