“Climate change: Five cheap ways to remove CO2 from the atmosphere”

“As well as rapidly reducing the carbon dioxide that we humans are pumping into the atmosphere in huge amounts, recent scientific assessments of climate change have all suggested that cutting emissions alone will not be enough to keep… Read More

“Marine microbes: Small but mighty at capturing carbon”

“Averaging a life span of just a few days, 30 million marine microbes would fit in a shot glass, 100 in the width of a human hair. These organisms are tiny – just a single cell – but… Read More

“Earth’s climate-change liposuction: Sucking carbon from the air”

“Addressing climate change isn’t just about moving to cleaner forms of energy anymore. It’s about literally taking out some of the heat-trapping gases already in our skies. Why it matters: There is so much buildup of carbon dioxide… Read More

“Google’s New Tool to Fight Climate Change”

“In the next decade or so, more than 6,000 cities, states, and provinces around the world will try to do something that has eluded humanity for 25 years: reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases, which warm the atmosphere… Read More

“Reducing Embodied Carbon and Operational Emissions in Buildings”

“Last week, at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, Microsoft announced it is the first large corporate user of a new tool to track the carbon emissions of raw building materials. Microsoft is piloting the tool,… Read More

“Offsetting Just One Coal Plant’s Emissions Requires a Maryland-Sized Forest”

“If we want to have a fighting chance of keeping the planet’s average temperature within 2-3 degrees celsius above pre-industrial levels, the policy platforms have traditionally emphasized a two-pronged strategy: technology that can power civilization without emitting harmful… Read More

“Can we turn carbon dioxide to stone to fight climate change?”

“As more heat-trapping carbon dioxide continues to concentrate in our atmosphere — and to wreak havoc on our climate — scientists are desperately seeking solutions. Some are looking for ways to limit the greenhouse gas we spew from… Read More

“UCLA research shows how carbon-filled oceans affect a tiny but important organism”

“They’re impossible to see with the naked eye. They’re difficult to pronounce. But coccolithophores, a single-celled plankton, have an outsized effect on oceans due to their sheer quantity — their blooms are visible from space — and because… Read More

“The Key to Saving the Planet May Be Under the Sea”

“A Cold War-era joke has an American economist asking a Soviet peer how the communist economy is progressing. “In a word: good” the Russian responds. “In two words: not good.” So it goes this century with the rapidly… Read More

“Key ‘step forward’ in cutting cost of removing CO2 from air”

“Carbon Engineering has published a peer-reviewed study showing that they can capture carbon for under $100 a tonne. This would be a major advance on the current price of around $600 per tonne. The company says their immediate… Read More
