  4. John Oliver astutely outlines the looming threat of losing Net Neutrality and letting major cable companies, who have spent tens of millions of dollars in lobbying alone, gain control over the very law that is supposed to regulate them and mutilating legislation to boost their own profits while hurting customers.

    This is real - it’s happening right now. The corruption is so large and runs so deep that it is glaringly obvious even at the surface.

    How are we going to protect the Internet?

    THIS is how. Join the battle for the Net.

  9. Car fumes interfere with pollinating insects’ ability to find flowersThe Verge

    …for pollinating insects that travel at high speeds, being able to react quickly to odor molecules is crucial … a new study, published today in Science, demonstrates that fumes from cars not only compete with flowers, but also alter the way moths decode a flower’s scent. And this effect may be powerful enough to prevent these insects from finding — and therefore pollinating — agriculturally important flowers.

    …“because pollination is important for food security,” these results have implications for native bumblebees, butterflies, and moths — not to mention “agriculturally important pollinators, like honeybees.”
