Elon Musk told Donald Trump what to do about the Paris Climate Agreement

Elon Musk told Donald Trump what to do about the Paris Climate AgreementThe Trump administration may finally be nearing a decision on whether to stay in the Paris Climate Agreement.  Now we know that visionary businessman Elon Musk, who founded SpaceX, Tesla, and a new, mysterious tunnel-building firm called the Boring Company, is talking to President Donald Trump about what to do regarding this agreement.   Given his role in alternative energy, it's no surprise that Musk is in favor of the 2016 treaty. SEE ALSO: Elon Musk's Boring Company isn't waiting any longer The Paris agreement was negotiated under former president Barack Obama. And for the first time in decades of climate diplomacy, all nations agreed to take steps to cut emissions of planet-warming greenhouse gases based on their own timetables.  If the U.S. were to withdraw from the treaty, it's likely to have global repercussions, potentially encouraging other nations to relax their emissions reduction commitments or leave the pact entirely.  In a tweet on Monday night, Musk said he has spoken with Trump and is urging him to stay in the agreement.  @BigDAK54 I spoke directly with The President three weeks ago about Paris. Many others have too. Cautiously optimistic of a positive decision. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 22, 2017 Musk is part of Trump's business advisory council, for which he has received considerable criticism. He says he is remaining on it as a way to ensure that a diversity of views on particular matters, including climate change, make it to Trump's desk. Various advisors have been vying for the president's ear on this landmark climate deal, from the secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, to chief strategist Steve Bannon. Some observers think the president will announce his decision about the Paris agreement later this week at the Group of 7 major industrialized nations' summit in Sicily. While there, the U.S. will come under pressure from world leaders like German Chancellor Angela Merkel and new French President Emmanuel Macron to act on global warming, as it is a clear priority for other major industrialized nations.  Trump, for his part, has called climate change a hoax, vowed during the campaign to "cancel" the Paris agreement, and on Tuesday proposed a federal budget that zeroes out funding for international climate change assistance programs. The budget also slashes spending for U.S. climate research at the Environmental Protection Agency, Energy Department, and other agencies. WATCH:

Newfound ‘alien megastructure’ star leaves scientists baffled

Newfound ‘alien megastructure’ star leaves scientists baffled

You're forgiven if the name KIC 8462852 doesn't ring a bell. It's a far-off object, thought to be a star, which was only just discovered in late 2015, but it's already managed to totally confuse researchers in its extremely brief stint on the scientific stage. The star has continually exhibited extremely odd behavior, and has been repeatedly observed experiencing huge dips in brightness that don't seem to have any readily available explanation. Now, the star has been spotted performing the same dimming trick as it has in the past, and scientists are throwing out some extremely wild theories. 

KIC 8462852, otherwise known as "Tabby's Star" or "Boyajian's Star" depending on where you look, was caught in the act this past weekend, dimming in brightness by about three percent, which is a large enough change to be easily detected. Normally, the dimming of a star at regular intervals would indicate the presence of a planet in orbit, but there doesn't seem to be any pattern to the of dimming exhibited by KIC 8462852.

Researchers have thrown forth many possible explanations, including other, non-planetary celestial bodies passing in front of the star which are obscuring our line of sight, such as comets, and even the possibility that whatever is floating around the star isn't a naturally-occurring object at all, but instead a massive alien structure. As the research and observations continue, scientists around the globe are hoping that spectral readings will give them a clue as to what, if anything, passed in front of the star. Whatever the object happens to be, it's an exciting time for sky-gazers.

Fossils cast doubt on human lineage originating in Africa

Fossils cast doubt on human lineage originating in AfricaBy Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Fossils from Greece and Bulgaria of an ape-like creature that lived 7.2 million years ago may fundamentally alter the understanding of human origins, casting doubt on the view that the evolutionary lineage that led to people arose in Africa. Scientists said on Monday the creature, known as Graecopithecus freybergi and known only from a lower jawbone and an isolated tooth, may be the oldest-known member of the human lineage that began after an evolutionary split from the line that led to chimpanzees, our closest cousins. The premolar was found in south-central Bulgaria in 2009.

Everything points to Apple launching new MacBooks next month

Everything points to Apple launching new MacBooks next monthApple will unveil the next big thing for its various software operating systems at WWDC 2017, including iOS 11 and the next macOS major update. But the iPhone maker is also tipped to launch a variety of new products at the show, including the Siri speaker, a 10.5-inch iPad Pro, and new MacBooks. A new report says that Apple is indeed expected to launch new laptops this quarter, and there’s reason to be excited. In a new research note to customers, TrendForce said that notebooks are having a little moment, again. Shipments for the first quarter of the year grew by 6.1% compared to last year, totaling around 37.81 million. That’s a 15.6% decline from the Christmas quarter, but still an impressive result for the period. Apple placed fifth in TrendForce's top, with 3.4 million MacBook laptops shipped during the period — that marks a 15.8% decline compared to the December quarter, but a 15.4% increase compared to last year. TrendForce quotes the MacBook Pro with TouchBar as the device that contributed significantly to the overall shipments. Similarly, the researchers believe the 12-inch MacBook will help Apple ship 10% more laptops in the second quarter of this year than last year. That’s because Apple reportedly plans to launch a new version of the 12-inch MacBook that will feature a new processor. The report notes that promotional pricing for some older models might also be in order. A previous report said that Apple will update the MacBook Pro as well, even if it only launched a new model in late 2016. TrendForce makes no mention of other MacBook updates for the quarter.

This is what Apple’s newest iPad might look like

Apple’s WWDC 2017 is getting closer, which means we’re soon going to learn more details about iOS 11 and the next major macOS update. But that’s not the only exciting thing coming out of the event. Many reports claim new hardware will be unveiled during the keynote, including a brand new iPad Pro model that will join the 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch versions.

And now we have more images that show its purported design.

We already saw a bunch of leaked images earlier this week that showed cases for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. Since then, the same leaker (Benjamin Geskin) posted a bunch of additional renders on Twitter that showcase what could be the final design of the tablet.

From the looks of it, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro will have the same design you expect from the iPad. However, this model will have reduced side bezels, and it looks like the top and bottom bezels might also be smaller than those on the 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch versions.

https://twitter.com/VenyaGeskin1/status/866925700749692928

The home button is still in the picture, so don’t get excited about an iPad Pro without a home button. That’s going to be a signature feature of the iPhone 8, one that requires sophisticated technology, so it might be some time before we see Apple bring this design decision to the iPad line.

Geskin also shared images of a mockup for case makers, which you can see below:

https://twitter.com/VenyaGeskin1/status/866926219903860736

Finally, Geskin updated his 3D renders based on the leaks, which we've also included here:

https://twitter.com/VenyaGeskin1/status/866937331869208576

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro is already in production, a report from China claims. Should Apple launch it at WWDC in June, it’s likely that it’ll hit stores soon within the following weeks.
