Life Inside a Secret Chinese Bitcoin Mine
Subscribe to Motherboard Radio today! http://apple.co/1DWdc9d In October of last year Motherboard gained access to a massive, secretive Bitcoin mine housed within a repurposed factory in the Liaoning Province in rural northeast China. This is the infrastructure that keeps the digital currency’s decentralized network up and running, and its operators are profiting big time. The mine we visited is just one of six sites owned by a secretive group of four people, part of a colossal mining operation that, as of our visit, cumulatively generated 4,050 bitcoins a month, equivalent to a monthly gross of $1.5 million.

Mongolia's Mining Boom (2012)
The Big Dig: Mongolia is the new frontier in a massive, break-neck speed resources rush. But as it races to take advantage of Chinese demand, helped along by Rio Tinto, what is it getting from digging up the steppes?

Australian miner Rio Tinto is about to open one of the biggest copper mines on the planet in Mongolia, which will soon account for more than 30% of the country's entire GDP. "Some of the optimistic geologists we have say that this business could run for up to 100 years", Cameron McRae from Rio Tinto explains. But the company only cedes the Mongolian government a 34% stake, provoking worries about where the benefits of Mongolia's resource wealth will go. There's concerns the government is ill-equipped to strike complex mining deals in the national interest. "The deal is a financial transaction and whether it's really beneficial to Mongolia, I have many doubts about that", argues Dorjdari from the Responsible Mining Initiative. Environmentalists also worry that the mining push has come so fast and so aggressively that proper checks and balances are not in place. "Most tourists come to Mongolia because they want to see that pristine open space blue sky, but what if we couldn't offer it anymore?"

Most AMAZING Discoveries From China!
Check out the Most AMAZING Discoveries From China! From strange archaeological findings to incredible hidden treasures, this top 10 list of strange ancient chinese discoveries will amaze you! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "REAL Mermaid Sightings Around The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/ChM0CBRmVsM Watch our "10 Sea Monsters ATTACKING A Boat!" video here: https://youtu.be/0XROvoPCDNc Watch our "STRANGEST Animals People Keep As Pets!" video here: https://youtu.be/OMa96nPqz-Y 10. Hanging Coffins All across central and southern China there are hanging coffins suspended on cliffs or placed in caves or crevices high up in the air. The mystery of the hanging coffins in China is believed to have been started by the Bo people and dates back to 3,000 years ago, although scholars aren’t quite clear why they did this, and most importantly, how they were able to place the coffins in such hard to reach places. 9. Underwater Buddha Statue Renovation works often reveal long forgotten objects, but workers in the Jiangxi Province couldn’t have possibly expected to find something of such significance as they began construction of a hydropower gate on a reservoir. The work caused the water levels in the area to fall, which revealed a 600-year-old Buddha statue! Looking quite peaceful out over the water. 8. Ancient Murals In 2013, archaeologists in Shuozhou city made a fascinating discovery… a tomb of a military commander and his wife, both of whom had died more than 1500 years ago. The treasures of the tomb and even the bodies themselves had been looted a long time ago, but a set of colorful murals remained remarkably intact. Covering about 860 square feet of plaster, they are of a man and a woman, who are thought to have been those who were buried in the tomb, in various poses. 7. Giant Cave Hall In 2017, a team of researchers went to explore a sinkhole in China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, and they couldn't believe what they found. Deep in the misty valleys in the ominous looking hole, is one of the most stunning cave halls in the world. To get there requires going down a rope at least 200 meters long (656 feet 6. An Extinct Ape in a Tomb Tombs are very important historical sites that can tell us a lot about ancient people and how they lived. However, this one took everyone by surprise! One that was discovered in the Shaanxi province went further than that- because it contained the remains of an extinct species of ape. 5. The Truth Behind a Legend There's an ancient Chinese legend that tells the story of a terrible flood along the Yellow River that, ultimately, led to the formation of the Xia dynasty just under 4000 years ago. According to the myth, a hero, named Yu, learned how to stop the approaching waters by dredging, which allowed him to establish the bronze age dynasty. 4. Huge Gold Find It's hardly a secret that China is home to some of the richest mineral formations in the world but, in 2017, the country's second-largest gold mining company, the Shandong Gold Group, made an amazing announcement. They had found the largest gold deposit to have ever been discovered in the country. 3. Two New Dinosaurs Covering such a large area, it’s perhaps no surprise that fossils are often discovered in China. In 2018, researchers announced the discovery of two new species of dinosaur, both of which were types of alvarezsaurus. These dinosaurs were theropods, which means they were meat eaters and were very similar to birds. 2. A Pyramid When you think of pyramids, you will, of course, be reminded of those in Egypt, and maybe even Mexico…. But what about China? Researchers were excavating a site that was believed to be a part of the great wall, but they soon discovered something completely different. They began to uncover a 4300-year-old walled city, now referred to as Shimao, that is believed to be one of the largest of the ancient world- covering more than 400 hectares. 1. Blue Monster Tomb In 2013 and 2014, researchers began to search inside a mysterious 1700 year tomb and were amazed at the intricate decorations that lay within. Located in the modern-day Xinzhou city, the tomb had been heavily looted, but some ornaments remained, along with some amazing murals.

Top 10 Countries With The LARGEST Gold Reserves!
Check out these 10 countries with the largest gold reserves in the world! This top 10 list features some of the richest and wealthiest countries on earth that have tons of gold bars stacked up somewhere! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "SURPRISING And Interesting Facts About Money!" video here: https://youtu.be/ONpChSPqVc4 Watch our "Most AMAZING Discoveries With A Metal Detector!" video here: https://youtu.be/45JveYKafVo Watch our "Most EXPENSIVE Diamonds In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/RcZATf3Lmb0 10.) India According to the World Gold Council, the Bank of India currently holds 557.7 tons of gold. It is one of the largest stores of gold in the world! This makes up 9.9 % of the country’s total foreign reserve. Foreign exchange reserves is money or other assets held by a nation’s central bank so they can back the national currency. India, home to 1.25 billion people, is the number one largest consumer of the precious metal. Furthermore, India is one of the most reliable drivers of global demand. For example, India’s festival and wedding season, which runs from October to December, has historically been a major market for gold. And probably, one of the most interesting facts about India and gold is that India rarely invests much in gold. This is because as a country, India operates under the belief that buying gold leads to a deficit. And their belief must be proving right as things also seem to be improving for India. For instance, if you look at the last few years, India has increased its gold reserves from 557.74 to 557.77. While this might not seem like a lot, India is also at its highest point in history! In addition to what the country holds, Indian households which are considered the world’s largest hoarders of gold, hold a record 23,000-24,000 tons, which is worth about $800 billion. 9.) Netherlands In the past few years, the Netherlands has held 52% of its foreign reserve in gold. The Netherlands has a reported 612.45 tons. In 2016 it was reported that the bank was looking for a place to store all its gold because they were going to renovate the vaults and needed to moving it. The Dutch central bank is planning to move the country’s gold reserves from the center of Amsterdam to a new complex called the Cash Center. Like most countries, Dutch gold is also held in banks around the world to reduce risk. Security measures to guard the gold 24/7 have become a problem in Amsterdam. 189,000 kilos of gold will be moved at the beginning of 2022. Maybe this is one reason that over the last decade and a half, the Netherlands was selling off tons of gold in order to reduce its reserve. However, there weren’t that many buyers out there and they sold less than the country wanted. More recently the country has had less ambition to sell gold. Currently, the country holds the same amount of tons, 612.45 that they have over the last few years. However, the country has increased its percentage of foreign reserves to 61.2 %. 8.) Japan Japan is another country which had been increasing its gold reserves since the 1960’s. Their official gold holdings were reported at 765.2 tons. About 2.4% of Japan’s gold today is in foreign reserve. Historically, Japan has always held a bit more gold than other countries. This was true until 2011, when they began to sell some of their reserve in order to pump money into the economy after the tsunami and the following Fukushima nuclear disaster. But even with selling, Japan’s central bank has been one of the most aggressive practitioners of quantitative easing. For example, in January of 2016, it lowered interest rates below zero, which has helped fuel demand in gold around the world. 7.) Switzerland Prior to 1997, Switzerland was steadily building its gold reserves. In 1997, the decision was made to sell some of those reserves to bolster the Swiss currency and diversify the foreign reserves. The percent of foreign reserves in Switzerland is currently 6.7 %. Switzerland actually has the world’s largest reserves of gold per capita and currently has reported 1,040 tons. Over time, many citizens in the country started to feel like the bank was getting rid of too much gold. They then banded together with the “Save the Swiss” movement. However, once everyone was able to vote in 2014, the vote came to a no, and gold continued to be sold. During World War II, Switzerland became the center of the gold trade in Europe, making transactions with both the Allies and Axis powers. Today, much of its gold trading is done with Hong Kong and China. Around last year, the Swiss National Bank made a $5.9 billion profit, reportedly from its gold holdings.

Why Is China Investing Billions in Africa? | NowThis World
China has invested billions of dollars into the continent of Africa to build massive infrastructure projects in African countries. Much of this infrastructure is part of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, an estimated 1 trillion dollar plan to connect the country to trade routes all over the world. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2LhNmtv While China’s Belt and Road Initiative was only proposed in 2013, the country’s first infrastructure project on the African continent was built decades ago. The TazaHra railway, completed in 1976, was built to connect copper mines in Zambia to Dar EH Salaam, Tanzania’s former capital. The TazHara railway was the first infrastructure project built on a pan-African scale. China’s Belt and Road projects will be designed to create new trade routes within and between African countries. In 2017, a Chinese firm opened a railway network in Kenya, connecting its capital Nairobi to the port city of Mombasa. There are already plans to extend this network into South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi. Many observers worry that African countries won’t be able to pay back these debts, placing them in what’s been called a quote “debt trap.” But others think that as African countries rise economically, they could actually have the upper hand by the time they negotiate payments back to China. This explains why African leaders have been so confident in calling Chinese investment a “win-win.” But is China’s investment in the continent actually a “win-win” as some African and Chinese leaders have said? OR is it just a new form of colonialism on a continent that’s experienced so much of it? In this episode, we’re examining China’s Belt and Road Initiative and what it might mean for Africa.

Inside The Three Gorges Dam A Man Made Disaster
When it officially became fully functional on July 4, 2012, China hailed the Three Gorges Dam, the world’s largest power station with 22,500 megawatts of installed capacity as a resounding success. They pointed to it's modern, highly efficient turbines, it's ability to increase shipping capacity along the Yangtze River and the fact that it could help to prevent downstream flooding by freeing up flood storage space. Not only all of this, but it was a move towards limiting greenhouse gas emissions. Sounds great, but, there are two sides to every story and the negative consequences of this monumental project, which cost the country the equivalent of around 25 billion U.S. dollars have been described by many as catastrophic both in its human and environmental impacts. Over one million people were displaced and the dam flooded historically significant archeological and cultural sites. Entire ecosystems were permanently altered with rare plant and animal life being pushed to the brink of extinction. Experts warned that the increased pressure such a massive structure would create on the surrounding land would trigger massive landslides and an increased risk of earthquakes, and their eerie predictions seem to be coming true. We’ll break down the story behind what has become without a doubt one of the most controversial pieces of infrastructure ever built by humankind, The Three Gorges Dam. Subscribe to Knowledge Feed for awesome mysteries, discoveries, fun topics and all around AWESOME videos ! Pros The dam has plenty of positive impacts, it wasn’t built just to cause landslides and displace millions. At full power the Three Gorges is capable of reducing coal consumption by over 30 million tonnes a year, thereby avoiding some 100 million tonnes of gas emissions and ten thousand tonnes of carbon monoxide. The presence of ship locks and even ship elevators believe it or not, allows giant vessels to traverse the Yangtze, boosting the country’s economy as a result. While the Chinese government hoped that the dam would provide power to 10% of people in China electricity demand in the country became much higher than expected and less than 2 percent of the population receive power through the dam today. Another positive impact of the dam, if you were to ask government officials would be it's ability to prevent a very real and very serious threat to the millions surrounding and directly affected by the Yangtze, Floods The Dam’s top priority, it seemed was in preventing the catastrophic floods that occur along the Yangtze, land that is populated by millions of people. In August of 1931 following a year of above average rainfall the Yangtze flooded. 500 square miles surrounding the river were submerged. Entire rice crops were destroyed. Without this essential food thousands in major cities like Nanjing starved following the catastrophe. All told over three and a half million lives were claimed in the months following the floods. More recently in 1998, a series of floods that lasted from June to September left 3,700 people dead, 15 million homeless and caused nearly 25 billion dollars in economic losses. 13 million homes were damaged or broken beyond repair. Now, government officials tout the dams apparent ability to prevent such catastrophes. The general public and especially those that live in areas near the Yangtze aren’t so sure. Flooding last year was the worst since 1998, leaving hundreds dead. Critics pointed to the dam and its failure to prevent the disaster. The 2016 floods were bad and only time will tell if the Three Gorges is capable of preventing an event as devastating as 1998, or scarier still something more along the lines of what transpired in 1931. This dam is so freaking big, some experts out there think it's sheer mass and the changes in water level it creates could actually cause Earthquakes The paths of major fault lines lie directly underneath the Three Gorges. Experts believed that the dam, as a result could cause a significant increase in seismic activity. As you know by now the dam was built despite these and many other concerns, some of which we’ve gone over. A study done by the China Earthquake Administration, a government entity showed that the experts were right. They registered 3,429 earthquakes around the reservoir between mid 2003 and the end of 2009, 30 times the frequency recorded during pre-dam periods. People fear a large earthquake and it's potential consequences as it relates to the dam. If the dam itself were to be damaged during a huge earthquake, for instance, the results would surely be devastating for the millions living in close proximity. Thanks everyone for joining us on our Knowledge Feedy look at the Three Gorges Dam. We hope that we’ve tipped the richter scales within you a bit and we can’t wait for you to join us on our next video. Good night and good luck.

A land worth discovering: 7 Facts about Uzbekistan

More information about the video content bellow: 1. If you’re intrigued by the ancient Silk Road but don’t have the time to travel its length from China to Turkey, you’ll find three of the route’s most important cities in Uzbekistan. Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand were key stop-offs for traders, and have all been painstakingly restored to their former glory – think glittering minarets, voluptuous domes and hypnotic mosaics. 2. Tashkent’s metro features chandeliers, marble pillars and ceilings, granite, and engraved metal. It has been called one of the most beautiful train stations in the world. Each of the Tashkent metro’s three stations has its own design and unique theme. 3. The Muruntau gold deposit is situated in the Kyzyl Kum Desert of Uzbekistan. It is being mined in the world's largest open pit gold mine with production believed to be of the order of two million ounces per annum. The open pit measures about 3.5 by 2.5 km and extends to a depth of 560m (2012). 4. Vozrozhdeniya, an island in the Aral Sea, was a secret test site for biological weapons during the Soviet era. In 1988, the Soviets attempted to bury the evidence on the island, a frightening legacy that Uzbekistan inherited upon independence. U.S. scientists have confirmed that the island contains live anthrax and other deadly poisons. 5. The walled city of Khiva is a living museum, protected by Unesco but still populated by Uzbek families and businesses. It was founded in the 6th century, and thrived as a Silk Road trading city – with increasingly ornate mosques, mausoleums and madrassas (religious schools) added to its labyrinth of streets, all of which have been artfully restored. 6. The highest point in Uzbekistan is the Khazret Sultan, at 4,643 metres (15,233 ft) above sea level, in the southern part of the Gissar Range in Surkhandarya Province. Due to its location within a series of endorheic basins, none of its rivers lead to the sea. Less than 10% of its territory is intensively cultivated irrigated land in river valleys and oases. The rest is vast desert (Kyzyl Kum) and mountains. 7. Compared to Bukhara, Khiva, and Samarkand there is nothing to see, but Tashkent has a few historical monuments that are worth your attention. They are not as ancient, but Tashkent is a capital, a modern city. It has its own history, views, name, and sights that you will find interesting. One can be assured that Tashkent is not the dullest place in Uzbekistan.

China Cracks Down on Illegal Mining
One of the favorite hobbies of the western media is China bashing. It's an activity they indulge in whenever they see the opportunity. They criticize China for internet censorship, human rights violations, and for its environmental record. When criticizing China for being a major polluter, they do use facts. Nonetheless, their attacks are still a form of propaganda - albeit a more subtle form. Instead of making up "facts", they simply omit any fact that doesn't make China bad.

Yet another deadly mine accident in China
http://www.euronews.net/ Just five days after 29 workers were killed in a mine explosion in China, a new deadly accident has hit the country. Four men have been killed and 57 are missing after a blast that followed a small earthquake in the country's Henan province. Two workers were brought out alive from the state-owned mine. At another state-owned colliery at Hengyang in Hunan province last weekend, only six workers survived an explosion. China's mines are described as the most dangerous in the world, with 2,433 workers dying in accidents last year alone.

Zoomlion QAY800 All Terrain Crane - Walkaround & Facts at Bauma China 2014
Zoomlion is one of Chinas largest crane manufacturers. At bauma China 2014, Zoomlion introduced the QAY800. The brand new all-terrain Crane features a single-cyclinder telescoping system with hydraulic interlocking devices. The maximum lifting capacity is 800 tons. The main boom length extends up to 91 metres and the luffing jib length adds 15 to 69 metres. This makes the QAY800 sufficient for the assembly of wind plants with a maximum height of 150 metres, says Zoomlion. When travelling, the 8-axle crane has a deadweight of 92 tons. The driving speed is more than 70 kilometres per hour and the maximum gradeability is 35 percent. Zoomlion says the crane has been tested, error-free, during 15,000 kilometres of road tests on Asian street conditions. Zoomlion also cares about fuel efficiency: The company claims that the refined heat dissipation system reduces engine energy consumption by at least 4 percent. However, the QAY800 won’t be seen in Europe for the time being. It has been specially designed for the Asian market. This probably relates to the technology it uses. Zoomlion claims that is has self-developed many crane technologies. However, experts see similarities to mobile cranes of European and American manufacturers.

Future Powerhouses of Bitcoin Mining : Iceland & Hong Kong?
Two Future Powerhouses of Bitcoin Mining: Iceland & Hong Kong Bitcoin mining is wasting a huge amount of energy, and it may just get worse soon if Bitcoin prices rise. Right now, the electricity consumed to mine them is probably somewhere north of $250 million and could exceed $1 billion in the future. Can an energy-starved world really avoid this degree of waste, simply to distribute a Crypto-coin? Surely, there is a better way ! Iceland has launched the new Auroracoin (AUR) which is 50% pre-mined. Computer geeks, who normally cash the big profits from mining cryptos said it would not work. But it early days after launch it has been very well received. Will this be a new trend, which can help reduce excessive energy waste in mining. In any case, Iceland has an advantage in coin mining, with its low electricity costs, and the lesser need to cool mining equipment by expending energy. Hong Kong's advantage is the easy access to new Computer chips from across the border in Shenzhen, China. WIll HK stay ahead in the technology space race, thanks to cheap chips from China, employed within a free market environment? Links: ===== Forbes article : http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-12...

Iridium - The MOST RARE Metal on Earth!
Chemical Elements: http://www.ebay.com /usr/novaelementscom?_trksid=p2047675.l2559 NOVAELEMENTS: https://www.novaelements.com/ Mel Science chemical sets: https://goo.gl/SxwFlQ Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/Thoisoi?ty=h Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thoisoi2 Interesting page about chemical experiments: http://m.chemicum.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thoisoi/ So today I will tell you about the most rare metal on Earth - iridium. Iridium is a transitional metal, which is located in the middle of the periodic table, below rhodium. If we take a look at the prevalence of all elements in the earth's crust, Iridium holds the last place, that is a billion atoms of all that there is and only one atom of iridium. This metal is 40 times rarer than gold. In much higher concentrations iridium is found in meteorites and also in the depths of the Earth, in magma. Interestingly enough, in the layers of rock sediments, though more precisely in the formation of clay, that is aged about 66 million years there were found high concentrations of iridium and this can indicate the collision of Earth with a huge meteorite in the past, which in theory was the cause of the death of the dinosaurs. In it’s appearance iridium is a shiny metal that does not oxidize in air. This metal has almost the highest density of all metals, just 0.12% lower than that of osmium - the most dense metal. In this tiny tiny metal droplet, which is of the size of a match head, we have 1 gram of iridium. To help you understand how high is the density of iridium, I will show other metals with the same mass for comparison. Lead, copper, gallium, zinc, magnesium, and the lightest metal - lithium. The volumes of the first and last metal differ by about 30 times, although their mass is the same. Iridium is also a very hard metal that is firmer than the solid steel in 1.5 (one and a half) times. Iridium, in addition to its rarity is even the most stable metal that does not oxidize in air up to 2000 degrees, and is not soluble in either acid or aqua regia. Iridium can only react with the fluorine at temperatures of about 600 degrees. Unfortunately, due to the low activity of iridium, I cannot conduct any chemical experiments or have quality reactions with it. The only thing that I can do is make a fine powder of iridium and set it on fire in the air, but as you can see, in this case iridium dust is burning quite slowly and also requires dispersing it in the air. For the first time on youtube, you can observe a burning iridium. Also, due to the low activity of iridium, the metal does not tarnish in air, even when heated to above 1,000 degrees. The only thing that the drop of iridium got covered with is a partially evaporated ceramic layer, the one that the forceps are made from. Iridium compounds are can be either brown or yellow, such as the complex of Vasca, which is used as a catalyst in organic chemistry. By the way, Iridium is the only element that can give away 9 electrons and form compounds with +9 (plus nine) oxidation state. Iridium now finds many uses in science and technology. In most cases, we will probably find iridium in spark plugs for vehicles, due to the high stability of iridium to oxidation under the influence of electric discharge. Pure iridium is used for making crucibles for growing single crystals, foil for making non-amalgam cathodes, as well as as a part of the highly resistant to corrosion alloys. The first standard of mass of one kilogram was created in 1889 using an alloy composition of 90% platinum and 10% iridium and is called the International Prototype Kilogram, it is still kept in the Paris Chamber of Weights and Measures. Now you know more about one more of the elements, if you would like the scientific series of the elements to continue, please subscribe to my channel and also throw in some likes if you can!

Bizarre Discoveries in Mines
Here are 11 of the most unusual findings deep in the earth like ancient and time primate fossils or trapped toads alive in rocks!! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr # 7 Toads found in Rock One strange phenomena that still doesn’t have an explanation are toads that find themselves entombed deep into stone and continue to live. For years quarriers and miners have discovered to their surprise, live toads inside of the rocks they crack open. In some cases the toads are found 5, 10, and even 20 feet deep inside of rock. In all cases, they have no visible way in or out and yet in all cases they are all still alive. This bizarre phenomena is often called “toad in the hole”. No one knows how these toads find themselves in the rock, or how they survive without any water, food, or air. # 6 Ghost Miners in Mponeng The world’s deepest gold mine called the Mponeng Mine located in South Africa runs so far into the ground with so many winding tunnels that it’s almost like a dark underground city. The expansive, dark, and hot mine is almost impossible to completely keep watch over so every once in awhile an illegal squatter will be discovered. Mponeng squatters are called “ghost miners” and will find empty caverns to make their home in, illegally mine gold to sell above ground, and will even meet with prostitutes in the mines. # 5 The Bold Travelers of Mponeng - Desulforudis audaxviator In the world’s deepest gold mine, a new species of bacterium was discovered called Desulforudis audaxviator. Audaxviator translates to “bold traveller” which refers to the fact that the bacteria was found 2 miles below the surface of the Earth and is the only organism in its ecosystem. The strange bacteria has evolved to live without sunshine or oxygen. Instead, it lives off of hydrogen and sulfide as food, which come from the breakdown of radioactive elements. Basically, it’s a nuclear waste eating bacteria. It’s the only one of its kind and have amazed scientists with its complete solitude underground. # 4 Giant Roach Fossil Found in Ohio Coal Mine Geologists were combing through an old coal mine in an area known for its plant fossils when they discovered an extremely rare fossil. It was a giant roach fossil - about 4 inches long and twice as big as most modern American roaches. The fossil is rare because it’s completely in tact, while most insect fossils are only partial imprints. Fossils in the cave also preserved some of the smallest cockroach fossils ever found and their color patterns. Inside the coal mine, even more rare insect fossils were found including a rare ancient arachnid and a 60 inch long and 12 inch wide centipede. The chemistry of this coal mine in Ohio somehow preserved these insects with extreme detail that is not seen anywhere else. # 3 Dead Body found in Ghost Town Mine Hobby adventurers had the scare of their life when they were exploring an abandoned ghost town called Whroo in Victoria, Australia. The two were in the ghost town’s abandoned mine when they found a dead body covered in plastic and shoved into a deeper hole inside. The victim was a 50 year old man in a Neil Young shirt and the perpetrators were later found to be a 26 year old man and 30 year old woman. The details on this case are scarce, but it has all the makings of a really good CSI episode. # 2 Four Square Miles of Carboniferous Forest Discovered The fossils of almost an entire forest from the Carboniferous period was uncovered in the ceiling of two adjacent coal mines in Illinois. This discovery is the largest single-period fossil discovery in recorded history. Archaeologists delved into the 250 feet deep mine to explore and record the fossils. There were upwards of 200 specimens of detailed shrubs, trees, flowers, and even insects. # 1 Tiny, Strange Primate Fossil In the Krabi coal mine of Thailand, archaeologists uncovered a new species of a teacup sized primate. They found mandibles that belong to the pea-sized primates called Krabia minuta. Krabia minuta were native to Asia and are the ancestors to all monkeys, apes, and humans. They were impressively able to make it to Africa despite being separated from a body of water at the time that was bigger than the Mediterrenean sea. This bizarre find is very important for archaeologists, because it indicates a period of extreme evolution of primates in the area and will continue to yield more discoveries in years to come.

How We Could Build a Moon Base TODAY
Choke Point: Confronting Energy Demand and Water Scarcity in China
China's soaring economy, fueled by an unyielding appetite for coal, is threatened by the country's steadily diminishing freshwater reserves. Even as China has launched enormous new programs of solar, wind, hydro, and nuclear power development, which tend to use much less water and generate much less carbon, energy demand will skyrocket and will primarily rely on supplies of coal, the source of 70 percent of the nation's energy. These are the conclusions from a comprehensive reporting project that was presented at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars on May 6, 2011. The Choke Point: China series, a joint project by the China Environment Forum and Michigan-based Circle of Blue, reveals never-before-reported narrative and facts about the increasingly fierce competition between energy and water that threatens to upend China's progress. At the event hosted by the China Environment Forum (CEF), Keith Schneider, Circle of Blue's senior editor, Jeremy Schreifels of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Jeff Erikson, senior vice president of SustainAbility, discussed the domestic and global implications of China's rocketing coal-based energy demand, steadily diminishing freshwater supplies and the inexorable bond between the two. Next to agriculture, China's coal mining, processing, combustion, and coal-to-chemicals industries consume more water than any other industrial, municipal, or commercial sector. Currently, more than 70 percent of the nation's energy is generated from coal. By 2020, at least 500 gigawatts of new generating capacity, according to Chinese estimates, will be produced by coal. This coal boom is forcing China into a choke point; one where limited and polluted water supplies could constrain energy development and stymie economic growth.

Top 10 Ways China Is Ruining Its Own Environment
In recent years it’s come to light that, despite China’s best efforts to the contrary, they have a massive pollution problem. As China finds themselves trying to quickly and cheaply produce goods that meet the consumer demands of the majority of the world, they’ve also found themselves polluting the atmosphere on an unprecedented scale. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 Help us translate our videos: https://www.youtube.com/timedtext_cs_queue?msg=10&tab=0 - Learn more why you might want to help: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6052538 Find more lists at: http://www.toptenz.net Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

The Liverpool Plains needs your help and there isn't much time left! http://pozi.be/savetheliverpoolplains In January 2015, the NSW State Government gave approval to Shenhua, a Chinese government owned entity, to mine in the heart of the Liverpool Plains. The Liverpool Plains is in northwest NSW and is known as one of the agricultural wonderlands of the world. It is famous for its rich black moisture retaining soils and mild climate – all essential for the production of food and fibre. It has vast dry land agricultural properties and a very intensive irrigation industry. The irrigation industry is heavily regulated and monitored enabling sustainable use of the vast aquifers under the plains. These aquifers are part of the Namoi Catchment which holds the largest body of water in the Murray Darling Basin. When combined both dryland and irrigated farms on the Liverpool Plains produce 40% above the National Average for agriculture. The Liverpool Plains are seen as the most drought resistant and reliable food producing region in NSW and is considered an agricultural farming Wonderland equivalent to the Nile Delta and the Ukraine. Throughout the plains are small ridges, essential for providing run-off and extra water to the plains. These ridges not only host a wide range of biodiversity, but also NSW’s most significant Koala population and aboriginal sites critical to our Aboriginal People. The Shenhua mine will effectively truncate the Koala corridor to the east coast. Sadly in uncertain times of climate change, the Koalas need this corridor to escape summer heat and dryness. The vegetation located where the proposed mine is located, is considered ideal for the Koalas and any offsets offered by Shenhua are an inferior quality. The fate of the Koalas has been described as genocide. There are many significant aboriginal sites located throughout the project but our Gomeroi people believe that the Shenhua mine project has not been sufficiently surveyed. Among the many examples of Aboriginal heritage are sharpening grooves which are critical to Aboriginal people’s spirituality and sense of belonging and country. Shenhua has offered to relocate these stones but being large and made of sandstone it is believed that removal will inadvertently crack these stones. The significant meaning of these stones will be lost on relocation. This is important not just to the Gomeroi people but to all Australians. This community has fought to defend the Liverpool Plains since 2006. We have asked for the science to be proven that our aquifers will not be destroyed. We have blockaded for over 600 days to achieve an independent catchment wide water study. We have won court cases in the Supreme Court and held the first blockade for 32 days against CSG. Our fight to protect the Liverpool Plains has been long and sustained. Surely in this era of global warming, this mine, proven to be uneconomical and not in the public interest, is just one mine too many? Funds are needed urgently to raise awareness of this situation and continue our fight. Can you help us fight for the Liverpool Plains? http://pozi.be/savetheliverpoolplains #wrongminewrongplace #ShenhuaWatermark #liverpoolplains Video shot and edited by Ross Waldron (www.rosswaldron.com)
Guinea: Mining Companies Exploit Rural Communities
Guinea’s fast-growing bauxite mining industry is threatening the livelihoods of thousands of Guineans. Mining has destroyed ancestral farmlands, damaged water sources, and coated homes and trees in dust. Guinea’s government, which has transformed Guinea into the world’s third-largest exporter, should take immediate steps to better regulate companies and protect communities. https://www.hrw.org/video-photos/media-interactif/2018/09/27/our-land-how-guineas-bauxite-boom-affects-human-rights

How Close Are We to Building a Moon Base?
For decades, humans have fantasized about living on the moon, but we haven't sent anyone there since 1972. So, how close are we to a moon base?

At least, that’s the claim made by NASA’s administrator Jim Bridenstine, who says he’s not interested in just leaving “flags and footprints” on the lunar surface. " How to Build a Moon Base https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-07107-4 "Researchers relish the idea of a base for conducting experiments on the Moon and as a way to trial technologies for heading to Mars. Private firms, however, are increasingly tempted by the possibility of mining oxygen and hydrogen — which power rockets — from lunar ice." China Announces Plans for Moon Base https://futurism.com/moon-base-china-plans "A Chinese rover is currently exploring the far side of the Moon, and an official announced on Monday that the country’s space program plans to launch three more lunar missions — with the goal of laying the groundwork for an international Moon base." ___________________ How close are we to colonizing the moon, mapping the human brain and curing cancer?
