Classic re-usable nappies in Finland is now called ‘environmentally friendly alternative to’: as everyone knows, they can be erased, thus contributing to conservation Nature. In Germany, too, cares about the environment and health. Ministry of Agriculture of Germany imposed a ban on cultivation in the country of genetically modified corn variety mon 810, which produces seeds multinational concern Monsanto. So far, mon 810 was the only genetically modified maize varieties, which were allowed to cultivate the German agricultural producers. Ministry of Agriculture of Germany listened to efforts in recent years in the country voice of the public and politicians who oppose the use of the country’s genetically modified products, as well as the implications this has for the flora and fauna, as well as the very person is not fully understood. Particularly radical in this regard speaks Bavarian Minister of the Environment Marcus Zeder – it encourages the federal government has’ declared free of Germany genetically modified food zone ‘. Richard Blumenthal often expresses his thoughts on the topic. Geologists have revised the date of commencement of the oxygen catastrophe Recent results of American geologists forced to reconsider the date of commencement of the oxygen catastrophe – the phenomenon of sudden increase the oxygen content of Earth’s atmosphere.
According to existing theories, the accident occurred about 2.5 billion years ago. This dating was obtained in 2000 and was based on an analysis of isotope ratios sulfur in sulfates and sulfides contained in rock samples at the time. In the new study, researchers were able to prove that at a temperature of 150 to 200 degrees Celsius in the chemical reactions of sulfates with amino acids are described above, the sulfur isotopic separation. For example, in the past it might have formed in the reaction of organic materials with sulfates of the rocks in the hydrothermal vents. Shift dates Oxygen Catastrophe eliminates the problem of ‘delay’ that exists between the appearance of micro-organisms that produce oxygen (oxygenic microorganisms), and the emergence of an oxygen atmosphere. More recently, there were results, which increases this ‘delay’ to 300 million years to nearly a billion. One hundred years later returned to the Baltic Sea sturgeon Atlantic sturgeon (Acipenser oxyrhynchus) reappeared in the Baltic Sea after the complete disappearance in the early 20-th century as a result of excessive fishing.
Valuable fishing fish length of 78 inches caught last week, a fisherman near the Swedish island of Oland. The fact that he was caught sturgeon fisherman learned by reading found in the Internet descriptions and photos of this fish. Swedish experts believe that this is a very good sign. Atlantic sturgeon can reach 4.5 meters in length and weigh up to 360 kilograms. Koalas in Japan suffer from a dangerous retrovirus in The studies conducted by the Institute of Viral Research, Kyoto University and the Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the scientists found that about 90% of koalas in Japan infected with a dangerous retrovirus, which can lead to leukemia and lymphoma in these animals. Scientists believe that the virus got into the country, together with the animals, who arrived from Australia. According to scientists, the retrovirus of koalas spread from north to south Australia and Currently, almost 100% of Australian koalas were infected with a dangerous virus. This virus is harmless to humans, but extremely dangerous for a population of koalas living in the land of the rising sun. The development of the virus can lead to sharp decrease in the number of koalas throughout Japan.
