Radiation danger signs are used to warn people as they approach the uranium mines...uranium mine in Kazakhstan. #spy #plot

The town where Rip van Winkle is real: People who live near a Russian uranium mine doze off for up to SIX days at a time (and they may have buried an old man alive by mistake)

Donald Trump's administration have removed all mentions of climate change from the White House website. They have been replaced by a new energy plan that makes no mention of global warming and commits only to helping reduce the prices paid by Americans for their energy.

Every mention of global warming has been deleted from the White House website

Lise Meitner was an Austrian physicist who was part of the Hahn-Meitner-Strassmann-team that worked on "transuranium-elements" since 1935, which led to the radiochemical discovery of the nuclear fission of uranium and thorium, an achievement for which Otto Hahn was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1944. Meitner is often mentioned as one of the most glaring examples of women's scientific achievement overlooked by the Nobel committee.

Only four witnesses were invited to testify before the committee, which cannot be representative of all the expertise required to understand a field as vast as climate science. So we have asked for additional scientists to weigh in on some noteworthy, scientifically verifiable statements made during the hearing to provide a broader and more representative view of the state of scientific knowledge.
