  • Flow Of Heat From The Earths Crust

The mai...

    1,304 words
    GLOBAL WARMING, A FALLACY IN THE MAKING For the last 20 years or so the subject of global warming has spawned heated debate among the world's brightest minds.

These gasses are all naturally occurring and include water vapor, methane, oxygen, and the now infamous carbon dioxide. Greenhouse gasses exist in the a...
  • Journey To The Center Of The Earth
    443 words
    The idea of writing this story came from a scientist who explored the crater of a certain mountain. Verne got the idea that maybe it would be possible to descend even further into the earth. Many of Verne's "fantasy" stories have come true in the years following his death in the year 1905. A Journey to the Center of the Earth is farthest from reality. Even with the technology we have today, it would be impossible for one to descend into the earth. For one thing, we know now that the earth can't ...
