Potential impacts of future heat waves on humans and wildlife — ScienceDaily

Climate change is often talked about in terms of averages, like the goal set by the Paris Agreement to limit the Earth’s temperature increase to 2 degrees Celsius. What such numbers fail to convey is that climate change will not only increase the world’s average temperature, it will also intensify extreme heat waves that even now are causing harm. A recent review paper describes the potential impacts of these worsening events on people and wildlife.

From Stone Age chips to microchips: How tiny tools may have made us human: The technology of miniaturization set hominins apart from other primates — ScienceDaily

Anthropologists have long made the case that tool-making is one of the key behaviors that separated our human ancestors from other primates. A new article, however, argues that it was not tool-making that set hominins apart — it was the miniaturization of tools.
