2 days only, through June 30th, the new Scientific American magazine is available for download online, here.
This month’s issue invites us to learn all about how humans are making global warming, about the possible effects on hurricanes, which could get stronger, how memories are laid down in the human brain, how cats evolved, and last, but not least, how to measure the impact of humans on global warming by imagining that there are no humans around at all. Of course, first, you’ve got to get rid of all those pesky humans.
Seriously, I expect to read these things in Analog: Science Fiction and Fact, but not in Scientific American. I could buy better graphic novels (read: comic books) if I wanted to see “what if” stories in pictures!
