Membranes of graphene – single atom layer carbon “sheets” – have unexpected and rather unusual properties that seem set to enable several new technologies
Scientists predict green energy revolution after incredible new graphene discoveries
The breakthrough raises the prospect of extracting hydrogen fuel from air and burning it as a carbon-free source of energy in a fuel cell to produce electricity and water with no damaging waste products.

Monsanto’s Herbicide Linked To Groundwater Contamination
In a groundbreaking study published in the journal Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry last year, evidence surfaced that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the Monsanto’s patented herbicide Roundup, is flowing freely into the groundwater in areas where it is being applied.1 The researchers found that 41% of the 140 groundwater samples taken from Catalonia Spain, had levels beyond the limit of quantification – indicating that, despite the manufacturer’s claims, glyphosate herbicide does not break down rapidly in the environment, and is accumulating there in concerning quantities.
Global Groundwater Supply Crisis
A disturbing article coming from Natural News regarding the global groundwater supply. This comes just one week after we posted about the coming global crisis in the works as a result of the drought – (Click here to read first). The article states: Shocking findings reported by NASA show that the problem of diminishing groundwater is poised to lead to the collapse of the food supply, where there could be devastating consequences.
