Climate change increases renters’ risks – Yale Climate Connections

In 2000, almost 8,000 affordable housing units in the United States were at risk from annual coastal flooding. By 2050, this number could rise to 24,518, according to a recent analysis by Climate Central. The nonprofit science-journalism organization found that…

World’s First Fully-Recyclable Electronic Transistor Produced By 3D Printers at Duke University

Engineers at Duke University have developed the world’s first fully recyclable printed electronics. Their recycling process recovers nearly 100% of the materials used—and preserves most of their performance capabilities for reuse. By demonstrating a crucial and relatively complex computer component—the transistor—created with three carbon-based inks, the researchers hope to inspire a new generation of recyclable […]

New low-cost solutions could save sea turtles from a climate change-induced sex crisis | TheHill – The Hill

Because of global warming, most newborn sea turtles are female, which could put their long-term survival at risk. New research reveals that in addition to more widely used techniques such as shading and irrigation, the splitting of the turtle nests,…

Flash Flood Risk May Triple Across Third Pole Due to Global Warming – Mirage News

Chinese Academy of Sciences An international team led by researchers from the Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography (XIEG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the University of Geneva has found that flash floods may triple across the Earth’s…

The Green Mirage: Why A Low-Carbon Economy Is Further Off Than We Think

Bottom Line: The current prospects for a sustainable low-carbon economy are poor in both the UK and across the European Union (EU). Germany and Spain have already clearly shown what happens when state coercion forces such a dramatic shift to…

History of Mars’ habitability preserved in ancient dunes

On Earth, scientists study rock layers and the fossils embedded in them to learn about ancient life. A new study focused on red Mars – the desert planet – did something similar. It looked at the record of changing habitability preserved in ancient dune fields.

Perovskite solar modules: High efficiency on a large surface area

(Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) ) From cell to module without loss of efficiency: Researchers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have managed to produce perovskite solar modules with minimum scaling loss. For this purpose, they combined laser-based series interconnections with vacuum processing of all layers of the solar cell. They achieved an 18 percent efficiency on an area of four square centimeters – a world record for vacuum-processed perovskite solar modules.

Penn State to lead critical minerals consortium powered by $1.2 million from DOE

(Penn State) A region famous for the coal that once fueled a growing nation is now the focus of a $1.2 million project, led by Penn State researchers, aimed at establishing domestic supplies of critical minerals needed to produce modern technology from cell phones to fighter jets.
