Pagan News Beagle: Earthy Thursday, November 10

Iceland preps for a new renewable energy project. A look at how "green roofs" are taking over the world's cities. And just how big is the newly discovered planet orbiting our nearest stellar neighbor? It's Earthy Thursday, our weekly segment on science and Earth-related news. All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle!

When we think of renewable energy the first things which usually come to mind are solar or wind. But there are other ways to harness naturally renewing energy. Gizmodo takes a look at a new, audacious plan in Iceland to harness the island's geothermal energy.

There's a surprising amount of complexity that goes into animal husbandry. Just take a look at this piece from Discover Magazine describing the science of breeding chickens.

Normally we imagine cities and nature as being largely opposed. But what if it didn't have to be that way? Courtesy of The National Geographic take a look at efforts to make cities greener... literally.

Donald Trump was recently elected President of the United States. What does that mean for environmentalism? Nothing good if this article from Grist is to be believed.

There was a lot of excitement a couple weeks ago when a planet was discovered orbiting Proxima Centauri, the star closest to our own sun. If you were curious for more details about the planet, astronomer Phil Plait has you covered here.

Aryós Héngwis (or the more modest Héngwis for short) is a native of the Pontic-Caspian steppe, born some 5000 years ago, near the village of Dereivka. In his youth he stood out from the other snakes for his love of learning and culture, eventually coming into the service of the local reǵs before moving westward toward Europe. Most recently, Aryós Héngwis left his home to pursue a new life in America, where he has come under the employ of BBI Media as an internet watchdog (or watchsnake, if you will), ever poised to strike the unwary troll.
