Splash Page » NYCC: Brian Bendis Confirms Live-Action ‘Powers’ TV Series On FX, Draft Completed [UPDATED!]

Those who follow Bendis's "Powers" comic book series (about cops working in a world populated by superheros) may be interested to learn that Bendis has approved a script for a pilot live-action version of his comic. For those who don't follow the comic (that is only released in trade paperback format), the comic follows two cops, one a former superhero who lost his powers, as they attempt to solve cases in a world where superheros can both help and hinder their investigations. In effect, the story makes superheroes part of the landscape within which Bendis presents a police drama rather than a "superhero" story per se.

Sea level rise could be worse than anticipated

A recent report states that should the antarctic shelf collapse, sea levels could rise by as much as 21 feet, rather than the 16.5 feet currently projected. The new study takes into account the rebound of the antarctic landmass and the effect on Earth's rotation, as well as changes in the Earth's gravitational profile. They don't however, anticipate this happening for several hundred years... unless things go downhill faster than expected.

Green Comet Approaches Earth

For those of you watching the skies, be sure to set your clocks early for the morning of 24 February when a green comet (due to the large amount of cyanogen and diatomic carbon being released) comes into view. You'll probably need a good pair of binoculars or a telescope to get a good view of it.

Why sustainable power is unsustainable - tech - 06 February 2009 - New Scientist

New Scientist presents an article that reminds us of the non-renewable side of renewable resources. For example, although solar energy is free, the materials to make solar cells are in limited supply. As a result, any plan to increase dependence on renewable resources must take into account their non-renewable nature.
