It’s not Atlantis, but scientists have discovered a lost mini-continent in the Indian Ocean that disappeared under the waves around 85 million years ago. The chain of islands, now called Mauritia, was once between the southeast coast of Africa and India.
India is at an important crossroads in its development. It’s got a billion people packed into an area about the size of the American southwest, and as their economy grows, all those people are going to eventually demand more cars, which leads to more pollution, which is something India has enough of already. So the country is dedicating over $4 billion to developing electric cars.
India has a billion people, but it doesn’t always have the infrastructure necessary for such a massive population. Today, over 600 million people are without power, cities are without power after crippling power failures yesterday in what’s been described as the largest blackout in human history. Except for that time when no one in the world had electricity. That must have been scary.
