- (The Week) How the tick-tock of a plant's clock could help fight the effects of global warming
- Humans aren't the only ones that are jarred when their Circadian rhythms are disrupted. Plants, too, live by a finely tuned time-keeping system. In St. Louis, Mo., scientists are studying these processes so they can learn how to hack into a plant's clock and create more resilient crops and faster-growing biofuels.
- (The Week) How the tick-tock of a plant's clock could help fight the effects of global warming, Scientists can learn a lot by hacking a plant's internal timepiece By Jason Bittel | 12:02pm ET Everybody hates Day Light Savings time. In just one night, your body is expected to course-correct against the schedule it's kept for the last six months. On Monday, every cell in your body will wake up screaming, "It's not time yet!"
But humans aren't the only ones

- The New York Times: Engineering Food for All, OP-ED CONTRIBUTOR By NINA V. FEDOROFF FOOD prices are at record highs and the ranks of the hungry are swelling once again. A warming climate is beginning to nibble at crop yields worldwide. The United Nations predicts that there will be one to three billion more people to feed by midcentury.
Yet even as the Obama administration says it wants to stimulate innovation by eliminating unnecessary regulations, the Environmental Protection Agency
