Back to the Basics: Items That Most Cities Recycle and Others That Are Often Restricted

Why do some people still hesitate to embrace recycling? Between 2015 and 2018, the number of tons recycled increased by 2.2%. You might think that’s good news, but there’s a problem. While the number of tons went up, the overall recycling rate, including food and yard waste recycling, dropped. Decreases are attributed to these two […]

Youth is Fighting Microplastic Pollution with Magnet Water After Winning Google Science Fair

A young Irishman has come up with his own “cool science-y method” to solve the microplastic pollution conundrum, winning Google’s international science fair in the process. By mixing magnetized iron oxide and vegetable oil, he created a kind of liquid magnet that collects microplastics which can then be removed via magnetism, leaving only glistening water […]

To Prevent Worst-Case Climate Future, Governments Must Act Now – The Pew Charitable Trusts

Editor’s Note: This was updated on August 16, 2021 to highlight the science of the report findings. Longer heat waves, more intense rainfall, rising sea levels, and melting ice caps are some of the effects of climate change that are happening now and almost…

New study says changes in clouds will add to global warming, not curb it – Mongabay.com

Best estimates for global temperature increases due to a doubling of atmospheric CO2 since the start of the industrial era are between +1.5C and +4.5C. A major reason for this huge range of uncertainty is how clouds will perform in…
