Scifest

I’m in Dunedin for the next couple of days, attending the New Zealand International Science Festival. I’ve got little spare time between events, so there will probably be fewer posts during the day.

    There is heaps on at the science festival, and it seems popular with quite a few sessions sold out. Quite a lot seems to be aimed at younger people, a good chance to get them interested in science during the school holidays.

    Missed this one, it would have been interesting, it actually looks at the science!

    Greenhouse Gas – No laughing matter

    Methane from burping cows or nitrous oxide (i.e. ‘laughing gas’) from the soil is no laughing matter. Hear from Dr. Cecile de Klein about the background to agricultural nitrous oxide emissions and their contribution to climate change. Learn how we can measure them and what research is being conducted to balance reduced emissions with a viable agricultural industry

    If you want to put a couple of photos of cheese rolls in the public domain, while you’re down there – the Internet could do with them.

    I’m sick of cheese rolls already, until we were saved by the price of cheese going up faster than global temperatures every fundraiser was selling cheese rolls.
