Those of us who reject the idea that mankind controls Earth’s thermostat do so for many reasons. As yet there exists no physical evidence to link the steady growth of carbon dioxide beginning in the 1950s with the erratic atmospheric…
(University of British Columbia) Marine fish species are migratory in nature and not respectful of human-made territorial boundaries, which represents a challenge for fisheries management as policies tend to focus at the national level. With an average catch of 48 million tonnes per year, and USD $77 billion in annual fishing revenue, these species support critical fisheries, and require international cooperation to manage.
With a new material, the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) can be specifically separated from industrial waste gases, natural gas, or biogas, and thereby made available for recycling. The separation process is both energy efficient and cost-effective.

Years ago I wrote about my expectation, based on simple logic, that around this time, in the C-segment (e.g., Volkswagen Golf) and the lower-cost models of the D-segment (e.g., Skoda Superb), fully electric autos would become price competitive with their fossil fuel ancestors
As many know by now, the EU has put in place a regime that punishes carmakers that pollute “too much” — called Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards
Negotiations need to identify concrete hooks to bring every country to the table and agree on the target collectively
(Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) EPFL scientists have developed a new approach to stabilizing clay soils. The method involves using a battery-like system to apply electric current to carbonate and calcium ions in order to promote soil consolidation. Their findings were published today in Scientific Reports.
The EU Parliament voted this week, on October 6, to strongly improve its 2030 climate target. The proposal that was voted through was to cut carbon emissions by 60% by 2030 rather than 40% by
