Janine Young from New Scientist reports that it’s no secret that without dramatic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, which no one really expects to happen; we will be faced with rising sea levels. So if we don’t reduce emissions to stop the oceans rising, are there other ways we can reverse the tide? Can we drain the seas into the deserts or add ice to the great ice caps of Greenland and Antarctica? Also Ironically, a small study funded by Dyson, the hand-dryer manufacturer, has found that rubbing your hands together in a hand dryer leaves them coated in more bacteria than just after you washed them, while paper towels appeared to halve the bacterial count.
