What this all means in practice — to provide a bit of broader context here — is that yet another large source of greenhouse gases is now being prepped for release/exploitation. Now this isn't surprising, of course, as deforestation rates are still climbing throughout much of the world, and efforts to date to limit ...
The compact King Air B200 research plane is so stuffed with instruments that it makes for a tight squeeze for the two pilots and two scientists who'll be flying Tuesday from Hampton to New Jersey and then to North Carolina.

Chlorofluorocarbon gases (CFCs) became widely utilized in the mid-1960s—as refrigerants such as Freon, as fire retardants such as Halon, as spray-can propellants, as solvents, and as foam-blowing agents. CFCs were far more stable, far more chemically inert than alternatives and were, therefore, much ...
