Worth surmounting the paywall.   Big Oil wants us to use more plastic - here is why that's not a good idea.

A worthwhile read, indeed. Thanks, Can!

You are,  belatedly,  welcome.

And now,  zoonotic disease....

Eventually Musk hopes to raise grain on Mars and bring it back on the silo rocket,  as Earth's environment becomes more hostile to growing crops.

Without a clicks counter, or anyone replying,  it's hard to tell if anyone is reading in here.   Should this be posted in politics, too?

The number of views right now is 1935.

It was 1932 a few minutes ago before I first saw your query, responded to it, looked at the counter, checked back in here to make sure the counter changed as it should have, and then typed this second response to it.

Yes, there is a counter for views and yes, it is working.

ETA: at the top of each page that you are reading, it says "Topic: Science  (Read 1935 times)" if that is the relevant page and stat.

Have not seen that view info at any page tops here.   Wonder if only mods see that.  Wait,  now I see it.   Most of those views are probably spambots.

I'm not expecting to grow flowers in a desert...

But food crops may be increasing there,  thanks to nanoclay....
