PepsiCo Makes Largest Public Pre-Order Of Tesla Semis At 100 Trucks

Tesla has gotten its largest order ever of Tesla Semis yet. Reuters reports that PepsiCo has ordered 100 of the new commercial electric semi-truck. The move is part of the company’s drive to decrease their carbon emissions and fuel cost,...Show More Summary

Reduced spore germination explains sensitivity of reef-building algae to climate change stressors

Reduced seawater pH and changes in carbonate chemistry associated with ocean acidification (OA) decrease the recruitment of crustose coralline algae (CCAcf.), an important coral-reef builder. However, it is unclear whether the observed decline in recruitment is driven by impairment of spore germination, or post-settlement processes (e.g. Show More Summary

New tool to help construction industry reduce carbon footprint

A team of researchers from the University of Toronto is partnering with the construction industry to help reduce the carbon footprint of buildings, bridges, public transit and other major infrastructure projects.

Scientists find surprising methane-based ecosystem in underwater Yucatan caves

Underwater caves have been described as one of Earth's final unexplored frontiers. An international team recently delved into the flooded caves of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico and found methane and dissolved organic carbon sustain the food web in these caves, with an ecosystem similar to that of deep ocean cold seeps.[...]

More frequent fires reduce soil carbon and fertility, slowing the regrowth of plants

Frequent burning over decades reduces the amount of carbon and nitrogen stored in soils of savanna grasslands and broadleaf forests, in part because reduced plant growth means less carbon being drawn out of the atmosphere and stored in plant matter. Show More Summary

Toyota and FuelCell Energy Plan to Build a Giant Renewable Power and Hydrogen Plant

Toyota and FuelCell Energy are taking a gamble on the world’s first megawatt-scale carbonate fuel-cell power generation plant with a hydrogen fueling station at the Port of Long Beach, California. The Tri-Gen plant, built by FuelCell...Show More Summary

Carbon monoxide detector requirements face opposition

An apartment owners group opposed a northern Indiana city's proposal to require carbon monoxide detectors in residential properties that was rejected by a state board. The Indiana Fire Prevention and … Click to Continue »

Multi-year submarine-canyon study challenges textbook theories about turbidity currents

Just as rivers move sediment across the land, turbidity currents are the dominant process carrying sediments and organic carbon from coastal areas into the deep sea. Turbidity currents can also destroy underwater cables, pipelines, and other human structures. Show More Summary

Study: Too many nutrients make microbes less responsive

(University of Minnesota) Bacteria in lakes play a key role in maintaining water quality by absorbing excess nitrogen and phosphorus. They also help store carbon, which has implications for our climate. But, as it turns out, their ability...Show More Summary

After the fire, charcoal goes against the grain, with the flow

(Rice University) A two-year study of Rice University property damaged by a 2011 forest fire found that charcoal behaved very differently from other forms of soil carbon as the land rebounded from the fire. The study could help researchers and land managers make better use of charcoal soil amendments called biochar.

Green cash, carbon tax: What to expect at Paris climate meet

PARIS (AP) — French President Emmanuel Macron is hosting an international summit Tuesday to mark the second anniversary of the Paris climate agreement, hoping to inject the pact with new energy after President Donald Trump announced the U.S. Show More Summary

McLaren Senna

A track-focused, yet street-legal production car from UK supercar and race specialist McLaren, the Senna rocks a 789hp twin-turbo V8, a carbon fiber structure, a massive wing out back, and a race-focused active suspension. Weighing in at just 2,641 lb, it’s sure to be insanely fast.

Fire frequency drives decadal changes in soil carbon and nitrogen and ecosystem productivity

Fire frequency is changing globally and is projected to affect the global carbon cycle and climate. However, uncertainty about how ecosystems respond to decadal changes in fire frequency makes it difficult to predict the effects of altered...Show More Summary

Rice University advances asphalt-based filter to sequester greenhouse gas at wellhead

(Rice University) Rice University scientists discovered that adding a bit of water to asphalt-derived porous carbon greatly improves its ability to sequester carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, at natural gas wellheads. The filter is highly selective for carbon dioxide while letting methane pass through.

If Renewables Aren’t Growing Fast Enough to Replace Nuclear, What Are Europe’s Options?

Europe's electricity markets are in flux. Renewables have upended wholesale markets, but decarbonization has been slow. Can the region meet its long-term carbon reduction goals, even as nuclear declines? “The pathways [that] energy markets...Show More Summary

Altered Carbon Teaser Trailer Shows Cyberpunk Future

McLaren’s New Lightweight Hypercar Costs Over $1 Million

McLaren recently introduced its new lightweight hypercar the McLaren Senna. Named after legendary F1 racer Ayrton Senna, the new model is said to be successor to the McLaren P1. The red body is made from a lightweight bespoke carbon fiber with a dry weight of 2,641 lbs. The vehicle hosts a mid-mounted, twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8, similar to […]

Asphalt-based filter to sequester greenhouse gas at wellhead

Rice University scientists have found a way to make their asphalt-based sorbents better at capturing carbon dioxide from gas wells: Just add water.

Faltering carbon capture needs more investment not doubt

The world's first full-scale power plant carbon capture project has stumbled, but we can't let that risk the future of a technology we need, says Olive Heffernan
