In China, coal rules cut sulfur emissions, but data manipulation is a concern

Ars Technica - 1 hour 9 min ago

Enlarge / HUAINAN, CHINA - JUNE 16: A smokestack from a coal fired power plant is seen next to an abandoned former paper factory near the site of a large floating solar farm project under construction by the Sungrow Power Supply Company on a lake caused by a collapsed and flooded coal mine on June 16, 2017 in Huainan, Anhui province, China.

In 2007, China required some coal power plants to install Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS) to track pollutants given off by those stations. In 2014, the Chinese government implemented tighter emissions standards for coal plants. Have those two regulations worked to reduce pollution?

The answer is yes, but with a few caveats.

In a paper published last week, researchers compared troves of CEMS readings to emissions readings from a NASA-owned satellite. They found that while Chinese regulations definitely lowered sulfur dioxide (SO2) levels, there's some evidence that CEMS data shows an overly rosy picture of how large the drop was. Coal plants in key regions were given tighter standards than those elsewhere, and those plants facing tighter standards appeared to miss their targets more often than not.

Apple reportedly has big plans for its audio device lineup in 2019.

According to a new report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman and Debby Wu, the iPhone maker is working on an upgraded model of its AirPods earbuds, a new model of its HomePod speaker, and a new pair of over-the-ear noise-cancelling headphones, all of which could arrive next year.

Reports of new Apple audio gear have circulated for a few months now. A February report from Bloomberg said that Apple planned to release two new AirPods models, one with a stronger wireless chip and another with a water-resistant design.

First space, then auto—now Elon Musk quietly tinkers with education

In a corner of SpaceX’s headquarters in Hawthorne, California, a small, secretive group called Ad Astra is hard at work. These are not the company’s usual rocket scientists. At the direction of Elon Musk, they are tackling ambitious projects involving flamethrowers, robots, nuclear politics, and defeating evil AIs.

Those at Ad Astra still find time for a quick game of dodgeball at lunch, however, because the average age within this group is just 10 years old.

Ad Astra encompasses students, not employees. For the past four years, this experimental non-profit school has been quietly educating Musk’s sons, the children of select SpaceX employees, and a few high-achievers from nearby Los Angeles. It started back in 2014, when Musk pulled his five young sons out of one of Los Angeles’ most prestigious private schools for gifted children. Hiring one of his sons’ teachers, the CEO founded Ad Astra to “exceed traditional school metrics on all relevant subject matter through unique project-based learning experiences,” according to a previously unreported document filed with the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
