In a study published yesterday in the journal Science, researchers crunched reams of data on conflict and climate from all over the world, dating from 10,000 B.C. to the present and found "remarkably similar" behavioral changes in far-flung locations.

How a company found a business in measuring leaking methane

A few weeks ago, a strange-looking vehicle could be seen meandering through the natural gas wells and compressor stations in Bakersfield, Calif. The Toyota SUV, outfitted with instruments by the Santa Clara, Calif., company Picarro Inc., had a 12-foot rod attached to its front that stuck straight into the air and another smaller rod mounted on its top. It was "sniffing" for methane. This car is just one of the instruments Picarro offers for use by researchers and others interested in monitoring methane and other greenhouse gases.
