He Finally Located Source of Mysterious Sound–A New Frog Species Named After His Rewilding Quest in Costa Rica

A nature-lover’s well-trained ears led to the discovery of a new species of frog, after the Costa Rican man searched for six months to find the source of a mysterious sound. The tiny green frog was discovered by Donald Valera Soto, a naturalist and co-owner of Tapir Valley Nature Reserve, a cattle ranch that he […]

Scientists Predict the Hole in the Ozone Layer Will Close in the Next 50 Years

Scientists have estimated that at current rates, the hole in the ozone layer will close around 2070. Levels of chemical emissions from refrigeration and air conditioning have fallen and continue to fall, leading the scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration who measure the ozone hole every year to conclude its days are numbered. […]

New Solar-Powered Invention Creates Hydrogen Fuel from the Air

A high-tech sponge can absorb water vapor from the air and convert it to pure hydrogen for use in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and machines. This sponge uses electrolysis to extract pure hydrogen, and can be powered by solar or wind energy, producing renewable fuel from renewable electricity. The only portable green fuel source that […]

Breakthrough Might Finally Destroy the Harmful ‘Forever Chemicals’ in Our Water

FAS, a group of manufactured chemicals commonly used since the 1940s, are called ‘forever chemicals’ for a reason. Bacteria can’t eat them; fire can’t incinerate them; and water can’t dilute them. And, if these toxic chemicals are buried, they leach into surrounding soil. Now, Northwestern University chemists have done the seemingly impossible. Using low temperatures […]

Parts of the Great Barrier Reef Show Highest Coral Cover in 36 Years

The northern and central Great Barrier Reef have recorded their highest amount of coral cover since the Australian Institute of Marine Science began monitoring 36 years ago. Published today, the group’s Annual Summary Report on Coral Reef Condition for 2021/22 shows another year of increased coral cover across much of the Reef—with increases of 7-9 […]

Fungi Species New to Science Discovered in Scottish Highlands

What happens when you take 216 teaspoons of dirt from 55 remote Scottish mountains? Discovery, that’s what. Scientists doing a survey of soil-born microorganisms in Scotland’s Cairngorms National Park found a bounty of notable DNA strands, including a species of fungi that is entirely new to science, and two that are new to the UK. […]

In a Groundbreaking Party Piece, Engineers Turn Water into Carbon-Neutral Jet Fuel Using Solar Radiation

A carbon-neutral synthesis of kerosene, or jet fuel, has been produced by scientists, made by combining sunlight with water. 5% of human emissions are generated through kerosene use in aviation, which currently has no alternative for long haul jetting. It consists of 169 sun-tracking reflective panels that redirect and concentrate solar radiation into a solar […]

Scientists Discover Simple Way to Remove Heavy Metal From Water Using Plant Waste

Scientists just announced they have created a membrane made from a waste by-product of vegetable oil manufacturing, which can filter out heavy metals from contaminated water. They discovered that proteins derived from the by-products of peanut or sunflower oil production can attract heavy metal ions very effectively. The study showed that this process of attraction, […]

He Planted a Giant Sequoia in the UK to Offset His Carbon Footprint for Life – And 700 More to Make a Forest

Rather than sending money off to some questionable and unconfirmable carbon-capture forest, Henry Emson figured he would plant his own trees so he could look into the face of society and say “my carbon footprint is accounted for.” As it turns out, Emson realized that it was better to go big, and so planted a […]

Innovative Italian Invents River Cleaner That Grabs Trash Using Water’s Current

An Italian firm has invented what seems to be the perfect tool for stopping plastic waste from reaching the ocean via a river. They had to check a lot of boxes. The device had to allow for boats to pass without effort, while being able to run 24/7 with no impact on the riverine environment. […]
