The Norse settlement extinction from Greenland can teach us some lessons about our current resource-extraction and production recklessness, economy-environment incompatibility and the importance of collective responsibility and globally-coordinated planning.
Science is probably the last bastion of true freethinking but is being swallowed by this make-money-get-profit world. Science and scientists are becoming more and more detached from the pure curiosity and they are embracing this notion that an idea must first be sold in order to be explored.
The need to live more sustainably and reduce our carbon footprint is weighing heavily on the population. What can individuals do to make an impact on the fight against climate change?

Philosophers and social scientists have been hampered by inability to define what is meant by “identity”. This is because they have been unable to clarify the term “sameness” on which the definition depends. As a result, specialists in the humanities have taken very different approaches to understanding “identity”. This has resulted in widespread confusion, even chaos, in its application.

The good news for our robotics and space programs is that human beings can build machines that vastly outperform us in durability. It takes some clever engineering, but humanity regularly builds probes and robots that can survive long journeys through some truly astonishing conditions.
