Both solar and wind produce too much energy when societies don’t need it, and not enough when they do.

If Solar And Wind Are So Cheap, Why Are They Making Electricity So Expensive?

‘The disc of our galaxy is huge, around 200 thousand light-years in diameter,’ says lead author Martín López-Corredoira, a researcher at the IAC.

The Milky Way is more massive than we thought: New research claims it would take 200,000 light years to cross its gigantic disc.

Extreme pressures are found within the proton, scientists report. The proton contains three particles called quarks (illustrated) as well as gluons, which hold the particle together.

The inside of a proton endures more pressure than anything else we’ve seen.

Plastic Bans Are Stupid, Unconservative and Won’t Save the Whales.

Within ancient rocks in Arizona's Petrified Forest National Park, scientists have identified signs of a regular variation in Earth's orbit that influences climate. Here, one of the authors near the research site.

Earth’s orbital changes have influenced climate, life forms for at least 215 million years.

Plate tectonics shape our planet, creating structures from canyons to mountain ranges.

Why parts of Earth have barely changed in 3 billion years.

Based on fossil records, 250 million years ago over 90% of all species on Earth died out, effectively resetting evolution.

Could we detect an ancient industrial civilization in the geological record?

We are in the process of moving into the biggest scientific experiment of all time.

Global Cooling Approaches; Warmists: ‘Look! A Gulf Stream Squirrel!’

Pictured is an artist's impression of Proxima b, a rocky planet orbiting Proxima Centauri, a dim red dwarf star that is about 4.25 light years away from the sun.

Are we too late? Nearby Earth-like exoplanet Proxima b slammed by SUPER FLARE that may have wiped out any possibility of alien life.

Vast reserves of rare earth elements have been found hidden in deep-sea mud. Enough has been found to feed global demand on a 'semi-infinite basis,' and provide a much needed boost to the tech industry.

‘Semi-infinite’ trove of rare-Earth metals that can be used to create everything from phones to electric cars is found in Japanese waters.

The mystery of dark matter has deepened as scientists reveal the elusive substance does not interact with galaxies. Pictured is an artist's impression of four central galaxies at the heart of cluster Abell 3827 which was thought to interact with dark matter after research in 2015.

Mystery of dark matter deepens: Scientists claim the elusive substance does NOT interact with galaxies after all.
