Australians Are Dying Turning To 'Alternative' Cancer Treatments

Every year, thousands of Australians are suffering and dying prematurely because of alternative cancer treatments, according to a special investigation by Dr Paul Willis, director of The Royal Institution of Australia.

The report details the distressingly high number of cancer sufferers who choose to forego conventional treatment altogether in search of an alternative cure.

Why Are American Cities So Much Different Than European Cities?

European cities like Paris are much, much older than American cities like New York, and that age difference has led to many interesting differences in the layout of each city. For example, the wealthy population of America often live in suburbs away from the city while in Europe, the rich live inside the city. Why is that?

These Antarctic Glaciers Are Melting At A 'Staggering' Rate

On an forbidding shoreline at the bottom of the world, the prodigious ice sheets of West Antarctica dead-end in the Amundsen sea. For decades, scientists have been monitoring this interface of rock, ice and ocean in order to understand how quickly it will retreat as the planet warms up. A new study shows that three of the Amundsen sea’s frozen gateways are melting away faster than we realised, raising the spectre of an ice sheet collapse that could trigger a metre of global sea level rise.

Saturn's North Polar Hexagon Has Changed Colour

Add this to the long list of celestial End Times portents to keep you up at night: Saturn’s north polar hexagon, a six-sided vortex of unknown origin that could easily swallow our entire planet, has changed colour. It was blue when the Cassini spacecraft imaged it in 2012, and now, it’s bright gold.

Japan's 'Scientific' Whaling Program Sucks

Once again, the International Whaling Commission (IWC) has attempted to create a South Atlantic sanctuary for whales. And once again, it has been thwarted by a pro-whaling coalition led by Nordic nations and Japan — which, in blatant disregard of the UN’s International Court, continues to slaughter whales by the thousands for bullshit “scientific research” purposes.

Renewables Now Exceed All Other Forms Of New Power Generation

Last year, renewable energy accounted for more than half of all new forms of power generation produced worldwide. It’s an unprecedented milestone for our civilisation — one that points to a bright future for solar and wind power.

Software Error Implicated In Crash Of Mars Lander

Researchers with the ExoMars mission are pointing to a potential computing glitch as the cause of last week’s crash of the Schiaparelli lander. The challenge now will be to isolate and correct the error in hopes of preventing a repeat in 2020, when mission planners aim to land a much larger rover on the Red Planet.

Russia Reveals 'Satan 2' Nuclear Missile Capable Of Destroying Texas In One Blow

Russia is flexing its military muscle as tensions with the US simmer in the wake of a heated third presidential debate, where Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton called Republican candidate Donald Trump a “puppet” for Russian President Vladimir Putin. Now, Russia has declassified the first image of its new thermonuclear intercontinental ballistic missile.

Trump: Renewable Energy Is Murdering Eagles

It’s really hard to argue against policies that promote renewable energy. But people like Donald Trump will bend over backward to do it — like he did today on (failed presidential hopeful) Herman Cain’s radio show. Trump claims that wind turbines are a major threat to bird populations. But he’s just talking crap without any context.
