Wildlife inventory up north

Boy, talk about citizen science. I just learned that the citizens of British Columbia head out each winter for two days to count wildlife. This is according to the article “In Canada, Volunteers Vie to Count the Most Animals” by Chester Dawson at the Wall Street Journal. Now that’s dedication.

Water = hydroxide ions (better known as oxygen and hydrogen molecules bound together)

When I saw this article over at LiveScience, I immediately thought back to the book Here on Earth: A Natural History of the Planet by Tim Flannery.

The article is “Rare Diamond Reveals Earth’s Interior is All Wet” by Becky Oskin.I have to say that I didn’t know that scientist even believed there is water deep within the earth.
