2018/09/12: the world needs more swamps.
wetlands are extremely efficient at pulling carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and converting it into living plants and carbon-rich soil.
If ecosystems, particularly forests and wetlands, did not remove atmospheric carbon, concentrations of carbon dioxide from human activities would increase by 28 percent more each year.
The Paris agreement on climate change charts a narrow path to avoiding a global apocalypse. Just one problem: Its centerpiece is a technology that basically doesn't yet exist.
Coal supplies over 40 percent of global electricity needs, and that percentage is going up. The only real question is how to minimize the damage. Dan Winters Proof that good things don't always come in nice packages can be found by taking the fast train from Beijing to Tianjin and then driving to the coast....
Per lo studioso, nel documento finale del vertice appena concluso gli obiettivi sono timidi, così come insufficienti gli aiuti ai Paesi poveri
Through burning fossil fuels, humans are rapidly driving up levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which in turn is raising global temperatures. But not all the CO2 released from burning coal, oil
Iron in Sahara dust shown to produce massive Bahama carbon sink with similar effects proposed in ocean regions around the world.
We know that organic practices help reduce greenhouse gases -- but which practices, exactly, are doing the good work?
Mitigation or adaptation? It's usually an either/or choice: either we work on ways to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere or we find ways to adapt to new conditions created by climate change, including reducing society's vulnerabilities and raising its resilience. Fighting to close a coal plant or developing green energy alternatives,
To the philosopher, the physician, the meteorologist, and the chemist, there is perhaps no subject more attractive than that of ozone." -...
What we have to learn from Genghis Khan is that forests actually can work to bring climate back into a second Holocene. What we don't yet k...
The Carbon Farming Initiative is about to provide incentives for dairy farmers to reduce emissions from their milking cows. Emissions will be reduced by changing the cows' diet. The proposed new methodology
For a minute, I thought I had stepped into that scene from Lawrence of Arabia where T.E. Lawrence, approaching the Suez Canal, sees a ship sailing across the sand. Only I saw it in a farm field with cattle. I had parked on a levee at the north end of Twitchell Island, in the middle
Carbon capture, for those who don't know already, is the term given to various different technologies that can "capture" the carbon dioxide in streams of gases that would normally be emitted to the atmosphere
A couple decades ago just prior to my postgraduate studies at The Univ...
Cement production is one of the dirtiest industrial processes on the planet. It produces nearly 9% of global carbon emissions. This increases every year with the extraordinary demands for building materials
What would the world be like if we could build houses out of bacteria? For starters, the story of the Three Little Pigs might have ended very differently. But biomanufactured bricks, made of a mixture of sand and non-pathogenic bacteria,...
