Dialog / Flexible pseudocapacitor defies climate extremes, packs energy punch

In today's rapidly evolving technological landscape, the demand for reliable energy storage solutions has never been greater. With our reliance on electronic devices growing, especially in aviation, space exploration, and ...

Dialog / Contemporary wildfires not more severe than historically in western US dry forests: Study

Wildfires have increased over the last few decades in dry forests, which cover 25.5 million ha (63 million acres) of the western U.S. But are high-severity fires that kill 70% or more of trees already burning at rates that ...
