Air pollution inhibits global warming?

2019-01-28

A study jointly, conducted by Chinese and foreign scientists, sheds light on the impact of air pollution on global warming. Scientists point out that aerosol particulate pollution caused by human activities has a cooling effect on the earth, which can thus in part offset global warming triggered by greenhouse gases. It is also possible to make a more precise measurement of the climate effects of a...

Hypergravity—A novel approach to time and space

2019-01-22

Any object on the earth is subject to gravity as a result of the gravitational attraction and the centrifugal force caused by the earth’s rotation. Scientists perceive the gravitational field as the normal gravitational field (1g≈9.8 m/s2) and define the condition where the force of gravity exceeds that on the surface of the earth (greater than 1 g) as hypergravity.Apparently, in the context of ...
