Mol is is defined as the amount of a chemical substance that contains as many representative particles (atoms, molecules, ions, electrons, or photons) as there are atoms in 12 grams of carbon-12; therefore, one mole has 12.011 g C, and 1 gram of carbon ...

IP address is not a proof http://www.grisanik.com/blog/ip-address-is-not-a-proof/ Since the 45th President of America won the election, I have been carefully watching the mass hysteria about Russian hackers surrounding the entire thing. To clarify immediately, regardless of what side you are on (Democrat or Republican), if you look at the real-world evidence, it is very clear that the 45th President is the worst president so far. Now, regarding Russian hacking, was there involvement? Probably, in similar ways U.S. was involved in any other election in the world. Here I would like to address something else, people have claimed that clear evidence of hacking is the IP address origin, and I will give a few examples of why that’s not true, at least not ...

One of these things is management of forest after wildfires. Original photo source: "Eglin ...

Prophecies and/are expectations http://www.grisanik.com/blog/prophecies-and--are-expectations/ Lately, with all that is going on in the world, ancient prophecies are again becoming a big topic. The new so-called “signs” have swayed some of those people who previously didn’t believe to start believing and fearing we are doomed. In some previous posts, I have discussed how believing in prophecies is a bad thing and how this can actually create self-fulfilling conundrums of bad things. This time, I would like to run by you a few more thoughts. Regardless of what you think about prophecies, please stick with me, as this can come in handy in ...

Elon Musk news overload http://www.grisanik.com/blog/elon-musk-news-overload/ No, this is not an attempt of a little guy taking on a big guy, in order to get noticed. Elon Musk has done more for humanity and the environment than many other people combined. So, what is my issue? What I want to say is this: For the love of God, stop chanting like a hypnotized rabbit! “Elon, Elon, Elon ...” Consuming all possible news about him, what he says, what he thinks, what he hopes, what he loves... you are not him. Do not try to act like him. He is doing well, and he will do well even without ...

Carbon Sequestration Beyond Tree Leaves http://www.grisanik.com/blog/carbon-sequestration-beyond-tree-leaves/ When we talk about biochar, usually trees are considered as a usual candidate for production. However, even the fastest-growing tree needs at least 10 years to get to a decent size; among other things, this this is the reason I strongly oppose tree cutting, regardless of the purpose, except when it is absolutely necessary. Instead, using tree leaves would be much more fitting (at least temporary), as they have ...

How much electricity do spam emails waste? http://www.grisanik.com/blog/how-much-electricity-do-spam-emails-waste/ SPAM emails. Everyone with an e-mail box gets them. They are quite annoying, but that is not all: they waste huge amounts of energy. How much energy is wasted? According to anti-virus software specialist McAfee: “More than 80% of the world's email traffic is now spam, and the transmission and receipt of unwanted email gobbles up 33 TWh of electricity a year”, which is the equivalent of the electricity used by 2.7 million US homes, if we take ...

Carbon Sequestration by Leaves - Part 2 http://www.grisanik.com/blog/carbon-sequestration-by-leaves---part-2/ Note: If you have not read Part 1 it is strongly advised to read that first. There are a few misunderstandings about this method I would like to clarify: why, how, cost efficiency, feasibility, etc. I have a tendency to forget to explain things, assuming that people know them already or that my previous writing ...

Carbon Sequestration by Leaves and Dead Plants Carbonisation http://www.grisanik.com/blog/carbon-sequestration-by-leaves-and-dead-plants-carbonisation/ To prevent the catastrophic effects of global warming, as explained in the previous post “How much does switching to totally clean energy cost?” we need to use two general approaches: stopping future greenhouse gas emissions (which is best done by stopping the burning of fossil fuels as explained and significantly reducing meat & dairy consumption, as well reducing food waste) removing existing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, down to a stable level (around 350ppm). In many previous posts, I’ve already discussed how to tackle the first point. In this one, I will propose alternative ideas on how to deal with removing greenhouse gases from ...
