(Annual Reviews) Nonprofit publisher Annual Reviews is pleased to announce that the 2020 volumes of the Annual Review of Environment and Resources and the Annual Review of Nuclear and Particle Science have been converted from gated to open access. All articles in these volumes are published under a CC BY license and the back volumes, dating from 1976 and 1952, respectively, are now freely available. These are the final two journals included in the 2020 pilot program for Subscribe to Open.
A new study provides strong evidence that exposure to light pollution alters predator-prey dynamics between mule deer and cougars across the intermountain West, a rapidly growing region where nighttime skyglow is an increasing environmental disturbance.
The study found that greenhouse gas emissions would increase by 2050 if we recycled more paper, as current methods rely on fossil fuels and electricity from the grid.
Species on the Antarctic Peninsula are threatened by climate change and human activities including commercial fishing, tourism, and research infrastructure.
To contribute to global climate protection, Germany has to rapidly and comprehensively minimize the use of fossil energy sources and to transform the energy system accordingly.
Everywhere they looked the scientists observed a warming trend of 0.02 to 0.04 Celsius over a decade between 2009 and 2019. The planet has been warming and it has been the surface of our oceans that has absorbed much of…
Most of the wind available on land is too gentle to push commercial wind turbine blades, but now scientists have designed a kind of “tiny wind turbine” that can scavenge wind energy from breezes as little as those created by a brisk walk. The new device is not technically a turbine. It is a nanogenerator […]
The post Mini Wind Turbine Can Generate Energy Made From the Breeze You Make When Walking appeared first on Good News Network.
A research group developed an approach to reduce plastic waste produced by their lab. They have shared their approach with the hope that other labs will follow suit.
The world is now threatened with a Green Depression. Or it will be if governments — including Canada’s — go ahead with variants of a “Green New Deal” in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. One of the great leftist…
A study finds that atmospheric dust levels are rising across the Great Plains at a rate of up to 5% per year. The trend of rising dust parallels expansion of cropland and even seasonal crop cycles. And if the Great Plains becomes drier, a possibility under climate change scenarios, then all the pieces are in place for a repeat of the Dust Bowl that devastated the Midwest in the 1930s.
