Weekly Science Report

May 25, 2018

“Humanity's thirst for natural resources can only be sustained if we adapt our
patterns of consumption. Competition for necessities like water, food and land
will inevitably intensify. To meet the challenge of climate change and
environmental depletion we must all cooperate.”
Dalai Lama


Steve Detwiler created this publication with the support of Graham Hancock and John
Anthony West to share news and information on various disciplines to include but not
limited to paleontology, space sciences, genetics and archaeology. His goal behind
sharing this publication has always been very simple, by sharing knowledge we can make
our world a better place. This publication is Mr. Detwiler’s contribution to bring people
together and share ideas and discoveries with his fellow humans.

I hope you enjoy this publication and that the content challenges and inspires you!
