Searching for habitable exoplanets? Look for phosphorus

Scientists develop a new way to search for potentially habitable exoplanets by measuring the amount of phosphorus in their stars. Such planets should also have abundant phosphorus – necessary for life on Earth – increasing the chances for life.

How to stop global warming? The most controversial solutions explained – Eco-Business

Depending on who you ask, geoengineering is either a threat to serious climate action, a faraway back-up plan or a necessary part of today’s climate policy. All would likely agree it is contentious. Geoengineering encompasses a broad spectrum of proposed…

New Study Reports NYC Is Sinking…As Sea Levels Defy Alarmist Predictions

In New York City, like the rest of the world, alarming rates of accelerated sea-level rise continue to…not happen. In 1986, Dr. James Hansen, the Godfather of global warming alarmism, claimed Earth’s temperature would rise by about 4°F between 1986…

Greenland’s ice melting faster than at any time in past 12,000 years

Greenland’s ice is starting to melt faster than at any time in the past 12,000 years, research has shown, which will raise sea levels and could have a marked impact on ocean currents. New measurements show the rate of melting…

Stellar explosion in Earth’s proximity

(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) When the brightness of the star Betelgeuse dropped dramatically a few months ago, some observers suspected an impending supernova – a stellar explosion that could also cause damage on Earth. While Betelgeuse has returned to normal, physicists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have found evidence of a supernova that exploded near the Earth around 2.5 million years ago.

Mixing of the planet’s ocean waters is slowing down, speeding up global warming, study finds – Washington Post

The reduced up and down mixing is expected to have sweeping implications beyond just accelerating global warming. It is projected to increase energy available to hurricanes and other storms, reduce essential nutrients for fish in upper ocean layers and diminish…

Many ventilation systems may increase risk of COVID-19 exposure, study suggests

Ventilation systems in many modern office buildings, which are designed to keep temperatures comfortable and increase energy efficiency, may increase the risk of exposure to the coronavirus, particularly during the coming winter, according to new research.

The key to lowering CO2 emissions is made of metal

Researchers produce malic acid, which contains 4 carbon atoms, through artificial photosynthesis by simply adding metal ions like aluminum and iron. This solves a problem with current artificial photosynthesis technology of only producing molecules with 1 carbon atom and paves the way to exploring the use of CO2 as a raw material.
