The Plant Most Fundamental to Life on Earth

The forests in most countries around the equator, such as the Brazilian Amazon, have suffered greatly. In the 1960’s they were cut down to make way for cattle ranching and crop cultivation. At that time, governments were quick to loosen their restrictions on protected lands to benefit from high beef prices, driven by the growing fast food industry and foreign agricultural interests. Thanks to funding from McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s, governments were able to give subsidies to local farmers to burn down sections of the rainforest and make room for cattle pastures, as well as cultivate large quantities of crop such as soybean and African palm.

New Analysis Suggests Earth’s Magnetic Field Is Destabilizing

Earth’s magnetic field is generated by an interaction between rotation in the planet’s core and electrical currents. The field then creates the magnetosphere, which acts sort of like a force field, protecting the planet from the brunt of the sun’s solar wind. This field has both a North and South pole, which can be used for navigational purposes, and they are not static.Variations in the electric current have caused the poles to migrate as much as 16 km (10 miles) per year.
