Climate change is not the greatest threat to the diversity of species on Earth. The main problem is that animal and plant habitats are disappearing.
Researchers in Norway are among those at the forefront in the field of nanoelectronics. Their goal is to create electronic components at the atomic level, which would open vast possibilities for electronic gadgets.
Flu season might be much worse than usual because we have lost a lot of herd immunity. Pandemic measures are part of the reason. Hand washing and vaccination are still important.
