Scientists say they've found a mechanism by which these scented vapours turn into aerosols above boreal forests. These particles promote cooling by reflecting sunlight back into space and helping clouds to form...According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), they "continue to contribute the largest uncertainty to estimates and interpretations of the Earth's changing energy budget.""

Solo-Malee (618168) writes "I have been searching for a Digital picture frame that offers a 'proximity' or 'movement' based power saving mode.

Any Slashdoters out there know of a manufacturer that offers what I am looking for?
If you don't, then feel free to patent the idea, make the product, credit me as you feel fit and sell it to me for a reasonable price;-)"
