Price: Free! Words: 18,570. Language: English. Published: January 7, 2016. Categories: Nonfiction » Science and Nature » Global Warming & Climate Change
The evidence is clear: to change behavior ‘environmental education’ needs to change its focus – with less emphasis on knowledge and raising awareness (although still needed) and more on competency, action skills and problem solving (Marcinkowski, 2010). This report reviews the evidence base to establish which educational methods are proven to have an impact on behavior.

This short technical paper presents an alternate mathematical approach for determining the blinking frequency of our universe. Basically, if we convert a "fundamental" energy of 66.6 milli electron-volts into a frequency, it results in 1.039 THz. This can be demonstrated using the Anthropic Principal, the fundamental temperature/freezing point of water, and the Boltzmann constant.
