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 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

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.
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.[...]
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 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
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 »
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
(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
(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.
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
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 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) 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.
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
Joel Kinnaman stars in the TV adaptation of Richard Morgan's 2002 cyberpunk novel The post Altered Carbon Teaser Trailer Shows Cyberpunk Future appeared first on ComingSoon.net.
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 […]
Rice University scientists have found a way to make their asphalt-based sorbents better at capturing carbon dioxide from gas wells: Just add water.
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
