According to biologist Kenneth Olsen, clover leaves can have more than three leaflets as the plant is already genetically-inclined to sport such an anomaly. In fact, the record of the most clover leaf leaflets ever found is fifteen! If you ever find such a clover "leaf" you must really, really be lucky! The fiteen-leaf clover was found by was found by Shigeo Obara of Japan in May of 2002 and now he's famous.

Cities, municipalities, and even corporations have this problem of disposing organic wastes from houses, establishments, and such industries as farming and livestock.
Organic wastes generally get mixed with garbage and leach into the soil contaminating groundwater. If there is no effective treatment method, the wastes only serve to contaminate the environment. It's a big problem, but few people are aware that there is a way to deal with them and allow municipalities and private establishments to benefit and protect the environment at the same time. It involves the use of special waste to energy technologies to process and disinfect municipal organic wastes - practically changing them into useful reusable products that enrich the soil. A company that provides such a solution is N-Viro International.
clean coal and the positive response to them have made them into opportunity fuels of this age that's in dire need of alternative energy sources and/or renewable energy products.

From the satellite images shown here, you can see how much dust is being sent by the prevailing winds from the west. It forms a cyclone shape just below Beijing. You can see from the Google Maps screen-capture how big the whirling dust is. Beijing is the circular gray area in the middle of the picture near the top.

Oxygen levels in the Earth's oceans are apparently getting lower. Years after year, scientists have seen how certain deep areas of the seas, which normally have low oxygen, are getting bigger and moving into areas that are not known to suffer from hypoxia (lack of oxygen). The change is very evident in the Pacific Northwest coast. Already, in areas off the Washington and Oregon coast, an almost complete lack of oxygen in the water has left marine life, mostly crabs, dead with their carcasses littering the ocean floor. Such mass kills include fish in other areas of the world. Scientists believe the changes are part of the global climate change.
The "dead" hypoxic water in oceans usually lie deep and far from the continental shelf. But now, they are moving closer to shore and getting nearer the surface, where marine plants and animals typically thrive. Oceanographer Gregory Johnson, of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in Seattle, describes the depletion of oxygen levels in the oceans as striking. Scientists estimate the decline of oxygen in certain areas of the world to be at least one-third of what used to be the levels used to be 50 years ago.
Marine scientist Francis Chan says the Earth's oceans can expect to experience more depletion if the planet continues to warm up. Warmer waters ted to stay put near the surface and prevents the usual temperature-difference circulation of water from the deep ocean to the surface. It's like water in an aquarium that's not agitated by bubbles. The less agitation, the less oxygen is dissolved in the water. In the opinion of some people, not much can be done about the depletion since the affected areas are too widespread and there's no control over the marine life that can come into contact with them.

A lot of things can happen to the Earth as it ages. Earthquakes change the landscape, but if powerful enough, they can even have an impact on the whole planet. Such was the case of the seventh most powerful earthquake ever recorded in history. The Chile earthquake in February, 2010 registered at 8.8 magnitude. As of this writing, over 700 were confirmed dead. The resulting tsunami from the upheaval reached as far as Japan. Indeed strong earthquakes like that are rare but when they happen, they can have a lasting global effect.
Gross said that because of the steepness of the source fault, the Chile quake had a strong effect in shifting the Earth's mass vertically and shifting the figure axis. The Earth is like a top that spins at around 1,000 miles per second. Depending on the distribution of its mass (whether near or far to the figure axis), it's spin and angle are determined. As of this writing, Gross and his team are still gathering data on the earthquake which will fine-tune their measurements. What follows are before and after NASA satellite images of the 2010 Chile quake zone.
