Bizarre 'platypus' dinosaur discovered

Bizarre 'platypus' dinosaur discovered
Description
Although closely related to the notorious carnivore Tyrannosaurus rex, a new lineage of dinosaur discovered in Chile is proving to be an evolutionary jigsaw puzzle, as it preferred to graze upon plants. Palaeontologists are referring to Chilesaurus diegosuarezi as a 'platypus' dinosaur because of its extremely bizarre combination of characters that include a proportionally small skull and feet more akin to primitive long-neck dinosaurs.

Why the zero-carbon homes policy hasn't gone to plan

Why the zero-carbon homes policy hasn't gone to plan

Written by Max Lempriere, PhD Researcher in Political Science. One of the UK's flagship sustainability policies is in big trouble. Less than a year from now, the theory goes, all new homes will be "zero-carbon". The reality is rather different. Economic meltdown, a housing crisis, pressure from developers and poorly designed legislation have all combined to leave the country way behind schedule.
