This Virginia Island Is Literally Sinking Into The Sea (HBO)

“When you see fish swimming on your road, you’ve got major problems,” Dave Schulte, a marine biologist with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, told VICE News correspondent Arielle Duhaime-Ross. “That’s for sure.” Welcome to Tangier Island, on the Virginia side of the Chesapeake Bay, where 500 residents are struggling to cope with rising waters that are claiming more of their land each year. “I refuse to become a climate change refugee,” Tangier Island Mayor James “Ooker” Eskridge said. Yet that’s exactly what community residents will be facing later this century without intervention, Schulte projected. Since 1850, the island has lost two-thirds of...

NASA’s $3.5 Billion Idea To Save Earth From A Supervolcano Apocalypse

Yellowstone National Park sits atop a massive supervolcano that’s considered one of the greatest volcano threats in the county.  While experts estimate that a super-eruption might not happen for another few million years, NASA scientists performed a thought experiment to determine how we could prevent Yellowstone from ever erupting again. Their hypothetical idea involves cooling the volcano down by pumping cold water into a series of wells around its perimeter. If implemented, the scenario could potentially save Earth from a super-volcano apocalypse. ------------------------------------------------------ #NASA #Volcano #TechInsider Tech Insider tells you all you need to know about tech: gadgets, how-to's, gaming, science, digital culture,...

Kiribati: a drowning paradise in the South Pacific | DW Documentary

Climate change and rising sea levels mean the island nation of Kiribati in the South Pacific is at risk of disappearing into the sea. But the island’s inhabitants aren’t giving up. They are doing what they can to save their island from inundation. Can COP23 help make a difference? UN estimates indicate that Kiribati could disappear in just 30 or 40 years. That’s because the average elevation is less than two meters above sea level. And some of the knock-on effects of climate change have made the situation more difficult.

What Happens Inside a Dying Mind?

What makes a person believe that he visited heaven? Is there a way for science to get at what’s really going on? In the April 2015 issue of the Atlantic, Gideon Lichfield mounts an empirical investigation of near-death experiences, concluding that more rigorous research must be pursued to understand what happens in the minds of "experiencers," as they call themselves. One thing is abundantly clear, though. Near-death experiences are pivotal events in people's lives. "It's a catalyst for growth on many different levels—psychologically, emotionally, maybe even physiologically," says Mitch Liester, a psychiatrist.

A Devastating Hate Crime in Kansas

On February 22, 2017, Adam Purinton, a United States Navy veteran, walked into Austin’s Bar in Olathe, Kansas and singled out two South Indian men, Srinivas Kuchibhotla and Alok Madasani, who were there enjoying happy hour. “He approached them, asking, ‘Are you here illegally?’” recounts Sunayana Dumala, Kuchibhotla’s wife, in the short film "Do We Belong?" “Srinivas being Srinivas, he was polite. He tried to answer, ‘I am here on a work visa.’ But [Purinton] thought that Srinivas was from Iran and he was here illegally. I think that’s why he said, ‘Get out of my country,’ before he shot...
