SAN FRANCISCO Nike Air Max 2018 Sale Online , Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- A group of researchers at the University of Washington (UW) is investigating the idea of marine cloud brightening as a strategy to offset global warming.

As a short-term measure for a possible future emergency situation, the strategy involves spraying saltwater into clouds above oceans to boost their capacity to reflect sunlight.

In a paper published in the journal Earth's Future, two UW researchers, including lead author Rob Wood, a professor of atmospheric sciences Nike Air Max 2017 Sale Online , say small-scale tests of marine cloud brightening would also help answer scientific questions about clouds and aerosols' possible role to help cool the planet.

One of the biggest uncertainties in climate models is the clouds, which reflect sunlight in unpredictable ways. Water droplets can only condense on airborne particles, such as smoke, salt or human pollution. When the air contains more particles, the same amount of moisture can form smaller droplets Nike Air Max 90 Sale Online , which creates whiter, brighter, more reflective clouds.

For several years, researchers there have been working with a group of engineers in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California, on the U.S. West Coast Nike Air Max Sale Online , to develop a nozzle that turns saltwater into tiny particles that could be sprayed high into the marine cloud layer, according to a news release from UW, located in the U.S. Pacific Northwest.

Now waiting for funding from government or private donors, the researchers propose to produce a sprayer that is able to eject trillions of aerosol particles per second, conduct initial laboratory tests of the sprayer Air Max 2018 Sale Online , do preliminary outdoor tests in a fairly flat coastal area relatively free of air pollution and prone to marine clouds, and then move to small-scale offshore tests.

Nevertheless, geoengineering, also known as climate engineering, is controversial on ethical ground.

Wood argues that "for climate Air Max 2017 Sale Online , we're no longer in an era of 'do no harm.' We are altering the climate already. It's now a case of 'the lesser of two evils.'"

THE HAGUE, May 22 (Xinhua) -- The Dutch government decided to start the sale of nationalized bank ABN Amro through an IPO beginning in the fourth quarter of 2015, the Dutch cabinet announced on Friday.

Dutch Minister of Finance Jeroen Dijsselbloem had stated before that the ABN Amro could be sold only if the financial sector is stable, there is sufficient interest in the market and the company is ready to be privatized.

According to the government the financial sector now is strong and stable enough for a sale, the bank is strong enough and there is interest from the market. These conditions make it the right time for the sale.

"In 2008 the government nationalized ABN Amro for an amount of 21.66 billion euros (23.88 billion U.S. dollars) to ensure financial stability and to save the bank and to keep it in the Netherlands Air Max 90 Sale Online ," Dijsselbloem stated. "It always was paramount that this was a temporary emergency measure and that ABN Amro would be sold again. The results for the first quarter of 2015 also show that the economic performance of the bank is good."

"We agree with the Finance Minister's conclusion that an IPO is the best option for selling ABN AMRO," Gerrit Zalm, CEO of ABN Amro, stated in a press release. "This is a logical next step in the bank's development. The internal preparations we have made this past year are well on track, and both the Managing Board and the Supervisory Board believe that ABN Amro is ready for an IPO."

The sale of the bank will take place in phases Air Max Sale Online , with first between 20 and 30 percent of the shares being sold, followed by more state interest.

YANGON, March 9 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar President U Thein Sein will pay a state visit to Malaysia soon, said an official announcement Monday without giving specific date of his trip.

It will be the first visit of a state leader of Myanmar to the Southeast Asian member nation in decades at the invitation of Malaysian King Almarhum Sultan Badlishah.

In March 2012, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak visited Nay Pyi Taw with the two sides then reaffirming their commitment to consolidate the existing bilateral relations and strived for greater cooperation between the two countries in strategic areas of mutual interest.

The two sides agreed to continue working together in the fields of capacity building under the Malaysian Technical Cooperation Program.

During Razak's 2012 Myanmar visit Nike Air Max 2018 Sale Clearance , a Myanmar-Malaysia business matching was launched, bringing together entrepreneurs of the two countries.
