ETI’s ancient, indecipherable messages and Neanderthal’s control of fire

Welcome! "Alien Life" tracks the latest discoveries and thoughts in the various elements of the famous Drake Equation. Here's today's news:
g Abodes - The latest evidence of the dominant role humans play in changing Earth's climate comes not from observations of Earth's ocean, atmosphere or land surface, but from deep within its molten core. See article.
g Life - The ability of organisms to adapt to our changing climate could cause profound changes to the biosphere. Some microbes might remain dormant in environments until conditions improve. Invasive species could move into new environments, potentially triggering a mass extinction. See article.
g Intelligence - A new study shows clear evidence of the continuous control of fire by Neanderthals in Europe dating back roughly 400,000 years, yet another indication that they weren't dimwitted brutes as often portrayed. See article.
g Message - Chances are, there is life beyond Earth. But if anyone makes contact, the messages may be thousands of years old and indecipherable. See article. This article is from 2005.
