Continuing my new tradition of linking a day late, here’s some interesting stuff from yesterday:

  • Do any of you remember the idea that the universe eventually collapses back in on itself? Well, there is some math that indicates that this is still possible: a Big Bounce explains the early inflation of the universe.
  • Also, it looks like reducing carbon dioxide emissions in Europe actually increases emissions planet-wide. It looks like they’ve managed to reduce their internal emissions by 17%, but increased the emissions produced by their consumption (i.e., the real number including imports) by 40%. So they’ve outsourced their pollution, and (surprise!) it’s less efficient.
