If you love all kinds of weather then Maine is for you. Locals say in the year you get every kind of weather known to man and that instead of 4 seasons, Maine has 10. The environment is about as good as it gets, and Mainers are healthy people. Acadia National Park has got everything that a lover of the outdoors could ever need. The oldest eastern national park has hiking trails, large granite peaks, some of the tallest mountains on the US Atlantic coast. If you love you're food to be posh, then you won't be disappointed by Maine's Lobster, often said to be the best in the world. Although it's economy doesn't compare to states like Texas, it is still a beautifully relaxing place to live and is one of the best at caring for seniors. 4) New Hampshire Yet another New England state ranks high because the quality of life is solid in the Granite State. The crime rate is very low, the environment is clean, residents are healthy and it's health care is one of the best. But like some of its neighbors, the state could use some more things to do, but then again if there are too many attractions you do sacrifice it's peaceful atmosphere. It's economy is also strong, ranked 9th in the US in 2014, so there is money to be made. Overall New Hampshire has a very good balance, and balance makes for a good quality of life. 3) Minnesota Residents of the North Star State pride themselves on being nice, which helps explain why this is such a livable state year after year. Maybe it's the rough winters, maybe it's the renowned Mayo Clinic, but Minnesotans are a hardy bunch as this is one of the healthiest states. From the cosmopolitan Twin Cities to the rugged North Woods, the state has something for just about everyone. Overall it ranks highly in pretty much every category such as quality of life, economy, cost of doing business, Infrastructure & education. It is a good all rounder, and just like New Hampshire it has a very good balance. While there are states that offer a lot more & you can live much better if you have the money, states with a better balance offer a higher quality of life for the overall population rather than just a select few. 2) Vermont Sealing New England's dominance in this category, the Green Mountain State reveals the nation's lowest violent crime rate. Vermonters are again in excellent health, fit and trim, with good healthcare but also it offers some of greatest farmers markets in the U.S. Know for its excellent beer, cheese, and of course Maple products. The environment is pristine, and the state is welcoming and inclusive. No matter where you're from or what you're beliefs are, Vermont offers equality for everyone. There's no surprise that Vermont has the second best quality of life in the U.S. 1) Hawaii The Aloha State achieves a near perfect Quality of Life score, with the nation's healthiest population and the cleanest environment. Of course it's amazing weather & the fact that if you live there you're basically in what most people would consider paradise 365 days a year. Residents are protected by strong anti-discrimination laws, and you may never run out of things to see and do. Hawaii is all about just living, it's not the best place to start a tech company, or to make million in any industry, but it is recognized as the best place to live if you just want to live. Realistically you will most likely already need quite a bit of money to live in Hawaii, as it isn't cheap. But should you be fortunate enough to afford to live there, you may never want to leave.

US Warns India not to Tell United States what to do

US Warns India not to Tell United States what to do . USA says it dont want INDIA's help in Paris Climate agreement . Global trade battle . Import tariffs hiked by trump to China economy . billion dollar import tariff . Donald Trump says it dont want india's help in Paris Climate agreement . India china on climate charge against america . America says it dont want Indias help in Paris Climate agreement . Does narendra modi helps America or the USA in paris climate deal US doesn't need India, France, China telling it what to do Nikki Haley . The US does not need India, China and France telling it what to do on the issue of Paris Climate agreement, American Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has said, strongly supporting the controversial decision of President Donald Trump to withdraw from the landmark accord. Trump last week withdrew the USA the second largest polluter after China, from the Paris Agreement. He said that India would get billions of dollars for meeting its commitment under the 2015 Paris Agreement along with China and gain a financial advantage over the US. He had put the US in league with two other nations - Syria and Nicaragua - who have not signed onto the deal agreed by over 190 other nations. "I think the rest of the world would like to tell us how to manage our own environment and I think that anybody in America can tell you that we're best to decide what America should do. We don't need India and France and China telling us what they think we should do," Indian-American Haley was quoted as saying by CBS News. Responding to a question on global reaction to Trump's decision, Haley said countries should continue doing what's in their best interest. "They should continue doing what's in the best interest. And if the Paris agreement was something that works for them, that they can achieve, they should do that," Haley said. Haley defended Trump's decision saying business could not be run under the kind of regulations imposed by the Paris Climate deal. "There's a reason that President Obama didn't go through the Senate to get this cleared, because he couldn't. The regulations were unattainable. I mean you could not actually have a business run under the regulations that we had," she said. She said that the US is conscious about the environment and it will continue to do its part in protecting climate change. "We know that there are issues with the environment. We know that we have to be conscious of it. But we can't sit there and have Angela Merkel telling us to worry about Africa. She should continue doing her part. We're going to continue doing our part. We're going to continue encouraging other countries to do what they think is in the best interests of them. But American sovereignty matters," Haley said. The top American diplomat said that Trump believes the climate is changing, and he does know that pollutants are a part of that equation. "He believes that climate is changing and he believes pollutants are part of that equation. He is absolutely intent on making sure that we have clean air, clean water, that he makes sure that we're doing everything we can to keep America's moral compass in the world when it comes to the environment," she said. "We've done that in the past. We'll do it in the future. It's what the US does. It's what we'll continue to do," she added. Parked in my spot . PM Modi visit to china boost indian economy .

Leading on Climate: The United States Gave Up the Reins, Now What?
 
01:00:50
Since Syria and Nicaragua joined the Paris Accord last fall, the United States stands alone as the only country on the planet to reject the pact. President Trump’s withdrawal, after President Obama was fundamental in forming the agreement, means an abandonment of prominent leadership just as the rest of the world’s governments and companies are moving forward to combat climate change. Arguments about who should act, and how, shape international negotiations. Meanwhile, China has already asserted itself as the new leader on clean energy by launching initiatives and announcing global partnerships. Is climate change a geopolitical crisis in the making?

The Future of America

A look at the future of the United States of America through demographic data projections. With charts and graphs, we examine the two big transformations happening in the US: our population is becoming non-white, and it’s aging in record numbers.

That bulge getting older is the baby boom generation, like my parents -- and probably yours too -- born in the prosperous economic time period after the allied victory in WWII. For the first time in history, a society’s age pyramid will turn into a rectangle. Living longer and having less kids are the ingredients for an older population. Other highly developed countries are also entering this uncharted territory in human history when there’ll be almost as many of us over 85 as there are under 5. One major consequence, there’ll be a lot less people working to support a lot more retirees, which means we’ll have to work more efficiently. The good news is that we’re already well on our way to making that transition. But with 10,000 baby boomers a day turning 65 between now and the year 2030, that change is happening fast. When Social Security began, there were 42 workers for every person receiving benefits. Today, that ratio is 3-1 and it will be just 2 workers to every 1 beneficiary soon enough. Another piece of good news though is that the percentage of Americans who think this creates a strong conflict between the different generations is relatively low. Here is how the four current adult generations feel about a few key topics. Millennials and Gen-Xers are much more politically liberal, as seen in our support for President Obama, our strong support of marijuana legalization, and same-sex marriage. As recently as 2000 though, there wasn’t much difference in the way young and old voted. But after Bush and the rise of Obama, the difference between the parties has never been clearer. When it comes to religion, nearly twice as many Millennials as their parents say they have no affiliation. Many of these trends are being driven by the Internet, and the fact that we Millennials are the final generation that will remember life without the online world. Today’s young people are digital natives. The other factor that’s driving our open-mindedness is our diversity, which gets us to the other big transformation happening now in America., one that’s like watching a black and white painting turn into a multi-colored rainbow. In 2010, 64% of Americans identified as white, down 21% from 50 years earlier, and projected to be just 43% in 2060, with the country becoming less than half white around 2045. Immigration is driving this. A century ago, 9 in 10 immigrants were from Europe. Now, 8 in 10 are either Hispanic or Asian. And since immigrants tend to have a lot more kids than the rest of us, by 2050, 37% of Americans will either be direct, first-generation immigrants, or the children of immigrants--the highest number in modern American history. The other brush painting this rainbow is interracial relationships. In 1960, 2.4% of marriages were interracial, a practice that was actually illegal in a third of the states then. Today, more than 15% of us are marrying across racial lines. For the results, look no further than our current President, along with many of our most well-known celebrities. Looking forward, as America continues to become more diverse and accepting of the differences among us, that’ll hopefully help us gain a greater ability to join the rest of the world in confronting the biggest challenges left to us to solve over the next 50 years. Battles like climate change, poverty, hunger, disease, the spread of weapons of mass destruction, and cyber crime, are all issues that transcend international borders, requiring cooperation between many different kinds of people.

E. Knowles Middleton Absolute Zero and the Conquest of Cold by Tom Shachtman The Science of Measurement, A Historical Survey by Herbert Arthur Klein Lehrbuch der Chemie by Jöns Jakob Berzelius Script: As an Australian-Canadian the Fahrenheit temperature scale always seemsed a bit arbitrary. I mean why does water freeze at 32 degrees? And what exactly does zero represent? According to many sources the Fahrenheit scale was defined by setting zero degrees equal to the temperature of an ice, salt, and water mixture and 100 degrees being roughly equal to human body temperature. But that isn’t true. The real story is much more interesting, and scientific... August 14th 1701 was almost certainly the worst day in the life of fifteen year-old Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit. On that day both of his parents died suddenly from mushroom poisoning. He was sent from Poland, where he lived, to Amsterdam to become an apprentice bookkeeper. But Fahrenheit couldn’t stand his apprenticeship and ran away so many times his employers put out a warrant for his arrest. Traveling from city to city around Europe, he became fascinated with scientific instruments and in particular thermometers. In 1708, possibly seeking help with the warrant, Fahrenheit met with the mayor of Copenhagen, who happened to be the famous astronomer Ole Romer. Romer is known for observing the eclipses of Jupiter’s moons and realizing that variations in the timing of those eclipses was caused by the time it took light to reach Earth. In other words, he found a way to accurately measure the finite speed of light. But more pertinent to this story, in 1702 Romer was housebound after breaking his leg. To pass the time he devised a new temperature scale with the freezing point of water at 7.5 degrees and body temperature at 22.5 degrees. This might seem odd until you consider that Romer wanted the boiling point of water to be 60 degrees (as an astronomer, he had experience dividing things by 60). If you take this scale, divide it in half, in half again, and in half once more, you find the freezing point of water 1/8th up the scale, and human body temperature 3/8th up the scale. So at their meeting in 1708, Fahrenheit learned of Romer’s temperature scale and adopted it as his own, adjusting it slightly because he found it “inconvenient and inelegant on account of the fractional numbers”. So he scaled them up to 8 and 24. That is the original Fahrenheit scale. He produced thermometers for some time using this scale. But then, at some later time Fahrenheit multiplied all numbers on his scale by four, setting freezing point to the now familiar 32 and body temperature to 96. It’s unclear exactly why he did this. He may just have wanted finer precision in his measurements but I think there was a better reason. You see, Fahrenheit was an excellent instrument maker. His thermometers agreed with each other precisely, at a time when that was unheard of. He pioneered the use of mercury as a measuring liquid, which has the benefit of a much higher boiling point than the alcohol used in most other thermometers at the time. For these accomplishments, he was inducted into the British Royal Society. And we know he read the works of Newton, Boyle, and Hooke, in which he would have come across the idea that a one degree increase in temperature should correspond to a specific fractional increase in the volume of the measuring liquid. And today a one degree Fahrenheit increase in temperature increases the volume of mercury by exactly one part in 10,000. Is this just a coincidence? We’ll probably never know for sure because as an instrument maker Fahrenheit was secretive about his methods. But I think the data strongly suggests this was the case. So what exactly did zero represent on the scales of Fahrenheit and Romer? By many accounts it’s the temperature of a salt, ice and water mixture. But there are different descriptions of these mixtures and none of them actually produces the temperature they’re supposed to. More likely I think they picked the coldest temperature in winter, set that as zero and later used ice and brine to calibrate new thermometers. Now his scale is only used regularly in the Cayman Islands, Bahamas, Belize, oh and the United States of America.

Xiuhtezcatl Martinez: What is Juliana vs. The United States of America?
 
03:16
Environmental activist and winner of the inaugural Children’s Climate Prize (2016) Xiuhtezcatl Martinez discusses the landmark climate-change litigation case, Juliana vs. The United States of America, in which he is a lead plaintiff. He is one of 21 youth from across the U.S.A. who have come together in this suit with climate scientist Dr. James Hansen to sue the United States federal government for its failure to protect the health of future generations. By neglecting to safeguard the atmosphere on which U.S. citizens depend from threats such as rising carbon-dioxide emissions, which are closely linked to global warming and climate change in scientific studies and assessment reports, the plaintiffs in this landmark case contend that the U.S. government has violated its fundamental responsibilities to protect the public trust.

Why America still uses Fahrenheit
 
04:51
Fahrenheit, explained to the rest of the world Since I've moved to the US in 2010, there's one thing that I still don't fully understand: the imperial system. Virtually every country on earth uses Celsius but America has yet to follow. Although it might not seem like a big deal, not using the metric system puts America at a great disadvantage. For example, American kids have to learn 2 sets of measurements making science education even more difficult. On top of that, American companies have to produce extra products to export to metric countries. So why does the United States still have such an antiquated system of measurement?

The Paris Accord: What is it? And What Does it All Mean?
 
05:54
At the heart of the desire to get America out of the Paris Agreement seems to be three things: 1. Nostalgia. The focus on coal, an energy source that is becoming uneconomical even in developing countries, and that employs very few people in America can't have anything to do with anything except an imagined fondness for a world that probably never existed. These people are right that fossil fuels have been great for Americans and also for the world. I think the people who worked and fought to use fossil fuels to make people's lives better did good things. I also think we need new paths and to retire old ones. 2. A push to have countries care only about their own interests. Climate change is the best example that this doesn't work. And that's very scary for people who are skeptical of globalism. It may seem to them awfully convenient that the people who want a more global society happened to find this disaster that can only be solved by a more global society. Of course there are some that are purely economically motivated, but while those people are powerful, there aren't many of them. But these are the things that really resonate with large numbers of people. And when you're trying to defend your worldview, you'll make some magnificent mental leaps to do it...like that every scientist ever is lying about how CO2 absorption works. There are a couple Twitter threads that I really enjoyed on these topics. here they are.

13 Coldest Places on Earth
 
08:35
From the places that had the Coldest Day Ever to the place that has the most extreme climate and is names the Coldest Place on Earth Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 7. South America Coldness In contrast to North America and Eastern Russia, South America might seem like Death Valley. The coldest temperature ever re corded in South America was only -38 degrees fahrenheit in the San Juan province of Argentina. Many people would argue that the southern tip is the coldest place in South America .... 6. Verkhoyansk, Russia Once again Russia makes our list thanks to extremely harsh subarctic climate. Be sure to pack an ushanka if you decide to come here because most of the land is made up of permafrost or frozen soil. Located in the Sakha, Republic of Russia, you wouldn’t have to travel far to reach the arctic ocean The temperature differences between summer and winter are quite shocking. The town holds the guinnes sworld record for the greatest temperature range that can differ 189 degrees F. How is that even possible. It can reach temperatures of 99 degrees in Summer but has gone as low as -90 degrees in both January and February. You do the math! Despite the drastic changes, about 2,000 call this place home. 5. Brocken Mountain, Germany This place in Germany is certainly home to some extreme weather conditions. It might not have the record for coldest place on Earth, but it certainly has the capability of continuous, relentless snowstorms that can last months without stopping. Due to its exposed location of storms coming from Scandinavia and high elevation, it has an alpine like climate similar to Alaska or Iceland. Brocken Mountain has the highest precipitation of point in Northern Central Europe, the lowest temperature ever recorded was -18 degrees but take into consideration the surrounding ice and snowstorms this place is capable of, you should try to watch. This photo here, shows snow crystals clinging onto the trees in Brocken mountain, after a snowstorm covered the area in 31 inches of snow. 4. The Coldest Capital What do you think the coldest capital on earth is? Moscow, Bern, Ottawa? All Wrong! If you guessed Ulaanbaatar located in Mongolia good job! This city is regarded as the coldest capital on earth and suffers from long and unbearable freezing winters! We don’t even think Genghis Khan could have handled temperatures this cold. Just walking on the street with any exposed skin can result in pain. You really wouldn't want to forget a jacket living here. It’s also the largest city on the list with roughly 1.3 million inhabitants which is nearly half the country's population. Due to it’s high elevation, proximity to Siberia and lack of precipitation, it’s a rough place to live nonetheless. Due to a large amount of permafrost soil in Mongolia, it makes building foundations difficult. It’s believed this is why many Mongolians live in houses known as Yurts. 3. Eismitte, Greenland Located in Central Greenland, this was the site of an expedition that took place during 1930 and 1931. Eismitte in German means central ice and refers to the campsite that was built. The coldest temperature recorded here was -85 degrees F and the warmest only reaching 27 degrees; which is still below freezing. It never seems to get above freezing here even during summer. The record high recorded in the month of July was still only 28 degrees. There’s basically no summer here. Here in this photo you the frigid campsite that was built in 1930. A 45 foot deep pit was built which served as a living quarters for the 7 month long expedition. 2. Plateau Station Antarctica This is currently an inactive research center at the Antarctic plateau . Construction first began on December 13th 1965 and it was built for solar observation, micro meteorology studies, atmospheric studies and other things. This is the 2nd coldest place on earth and the lowest recorded temperature here was negative 123 degrees F on July 20, 1968. Summers here are obviously short and are always below zero degrees F. The winters are long, frigid and dark, making you wonder why anyone would want to do research here. A scientist there stated that every breath he took outside was painful and you had to worry about freezing your lungs or throat while inhaling. 1.Vostok, Antarctica This is the coldest place on earth. This was formerly a Soviet research station, very far inland on Antarctica. If anyone could deal with the extreme cold here, we imagine it would be the Russians!. The coldest month in Vostok Antarctica is the month of August, which would normally be the hottest for most people in the Northern Hemisphere! But this is Antarctica! But that doesn’t mean their summers are warm at all. The hottest temperature ever recorded here was in the month of January, reach 10 degrees F in 2002. The record low was an astonishing -128 degrees here. The research station has 4 months of no sunlight during its winter.

Why seeking asylum in America is so difficult

America has led the world in refugee resettlement for 15 years, but asylum cases have pushed political tempers to a tipping point. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Asylum is one way that refugees come to America. If you’ve already fled your home country for fear of persecution, and come to the United States, but don’t have refugee status, applying for asylum is the next step you take. It’s a small subset of the American immigration system, but it’s the mechanism behind so much of the news about border. Families recently separated from their children at the border came seeking asylum. People fleeing from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador — an area known as the Northern Triangle — come to the United States seeking asylum. To even get a hearing before an immigration judge, potential asylum-seekers have to prove that they have what’s called “credible fear” of returning home. And this is where that backlog really begins.

The politics of climate change in the US - TechKnow
 
24:08
The politics of climate change in the US Receding glaciers, volatile weather, and rapid greenhouse gas accumulation all point towards human-induced climate change. In fact, 97 percent of published reports agree that climate change is fuelled by manmade greenhouse gases. But while there is overwhelming consensus within the scientific community, climate change remains a contentious topic in politics in the United States. In this episode, TechKnow examines the debate over climate change. Lindsay Moran travels to Washington, DC to look at what is at stake in the debate. Politicians fall into two camps: those who believe in human-induced climate change and those who don't. When asked why climate change is so politically charged, John Holden, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology, tells us: "I think the most fundamental reason is this misperception that being in favour of addressing the climate change challenge is to be against jobs and the economy." Shini Somara heads to Miami, Florida, where there simply isn't time for a debate over whether climate change is a legitimate threat. The state is already facing the immediate effects of rising sea levels. According to climate scientist Ben Kirtman, Florida is the epicentre for climate change impacts. Rising sea levels are already affecting the lives of Miami coastline residents. Some have faced property damage from rising water, while others reflect on the reality of relocation. "I've been here for my entire lifetime," says Dan Kipnis, a Miami resident and environmental activist. "I know for a fact I'm going to have to leave." Miami Beach mayor Philip Levine says he cannot afford to be concerned with the politics of climate change. "As mayor I don't have the liberty or time to debate why climate change is happening. All I have is the opportunity to fix it," he says. "That bay is not Republican, it's not Democrat, it knows no limits." City officials are moving quickly to keep the city dry by installing pumps and raising buildings and streets. The infrastructure is expensive, and applying for funding from the state or federal level again highlights the political divides surrounding climate change. "When they are trying to get resources from the state of Florida," says climate scientist Ben Kirtman, "they can't really talk about the climate change part of it." - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

What Obama's Climate Rule Means for Cleantech
 
05:19
On August 3, President Obama unveiled the Clean Power Plan, calling it “the most important step America has taken in the fight against global climate change.” The rule calls for a 32 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from U.S. power plants by 2030, compared to emissions levels in 2005. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency also gave each state its own carbon reduction goal, based on the region's energy mix and current emissions levels. The rule has been both praised and criticized from all sides of the climate policy debate. But what does it mean for cleantech businesses? How much will it boost activity? In this episode of Rewired, we discuss five major takeaways from the Clean Power Plan with Malcolm Woolf, senior vice president of policy and government affairs at Advanced Energy Economy.

Changing the dialogue on energy and climate: Bob Inglis at TEDxJacksonville
 
18:00
Although he hales from the reddest district of the reddest state in the United States of America, Bob Inglis tells a story of how he came to appreciate the threat of climate change and how he believes the solution lies in the bedrock principals of conservatism. Bob Inglis is the Executive Director of the Energy and Enterprise Initiative based at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. Inglis founded and launched the national, grassroots organization in July 2012. E&EI is guided by the conservative principles of free enterprise and economic growth, limited government, liberty, accountability and reasonable risk avoidance to solve our nation's energy and climate challenges. Inglis represented South Carolina's Fourth Congressional District (Greenville, Spartanburg, Union counties) for 12 years in the U.S. House of Representatives (1993-98 and 2005-10). He was first elected to Congress in 1992 after having never run for public office. He spent six years in the U.S. House and unsuccessfully challenged Democratic U.S. Senator Fritz Hollings in 1998. In the fall of 2004, he was re-elected to the open House seat he had previously held and went on to serve another six-year stint in Congress. In the midst of the financial crisis in 2010, he lost his bid for re-election. Inglis grew up in Bluffton, SC, graduated from Duke University with a degree in political science and earned his law degree from the University of Virginia. He and his wife Mary Anne have five children and live on a small farm in northern Greenville County, South Carolina.

US President Donald Trump's administration may have withdrawn its commitment to the Paris Climate Accord, but several American cities and states are stepping around the federal government to pursue their own climate agenda. California, with the population of 39 million people and the world's sixth-largest economy, is among the states combating the world's pollution crisis.
