2013 Was a Terrible Year for Evolution

Never mind the increasing evidence—64 percent of white evangelical Protestants reject the science, and professors at Christian colleges are attacked if word gets out they teach it.

More fun with chemistry: Reactions of FOOF (dioxygen difluoride). FOOF is a "high energy oxidizer". Anyway, wonderful description of chemistry in the old days before all those nasty regulators came along.

 

Reminds me of the time a chem grad student in Sid Richardson blew up a stainless steel high pressure reaction vessel (or "bomb" as it was called). They did force him to work on the roof in a three sided blockhouse closed off with chain curtains on the fourth side after that. Wonder if it's still there?

This isn't sciency so much as economicky but it kinda goes to the intersection of the two. Article is about Europes thus far ineffective efforts to curb emissions due to the fact that the two main policies they're using are counteracting each other ... 1) putting a price on carbon and 2) subsidizing renewables. Conclusion is subsidizing renewables is forcing the price of carbon down, allowing big polluters to continue to pollute cheaply. Authors feel Europe should just price/tax carbon and let the renewables happen by market forces ...
