Carbon dioxide sensor network shows effects of metro growth

Atmospheric scientists report that suburban sprawl increases carbon dioxide emissions more than similar population growth in a developed urban core.

Pre-industrial carbon found in Canadian Arctic waters

Old (or possibly ancient) carbon is escaping from Arctic soils, according to new evidence cited by The Washington Post. The news is an indicator that permafrost thaw could be aggravating the issue of climate change — although scientists are debating how much ancient carbon Arctic soils would discharge normally.

Book vs. Television: Altered Carbon

last weekArts / Writing : LitReactor

A critical comparison of Netflix's "Altered Carbon" adaptation and the source material. Column by BH Shepherd I first discovered Altered Carbon in a book review. It was a different time—I read the review in an actual newspaper and then...Show More Summary

Soil cannot halt climate change

Unique soils data from long-term experiments, stretching back to the middle of the nineteenth century, confirm the practical implausibility of burying carbon in the ground to halt climate change. The idea of using crops to collect more...Show More Summary

When rotated at a 'magic angle,' graphene sheets can form an insulator or a superconductor

It's hard to believe that a single material can be described by as many superlatives as graphene can. Since its discovery in 2004, scientists have found that the lacy, honeycomb-like sheet of carbon atoms - essentially the most microscopic...Show More Summary

Y Combinator Is Looking for Carbon Removal Startups

Y Combinator -- the accelerator program that birthed some of Silicon Valley’s hottest startups like Airbnb and Dropbox -- is looking for founders with an unusual interest: sucking carbon dioxide emissions out of the atmosphere. While...Show More Summary

Researchers convert CO to CO2 with a single metal atom

Researchers from Washington State University and Tufts University have demonstrated for the first time that a single metal atom can act as a catalyst in converting carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide, a chemical reaction that is commonly used in catalytic converters to remove harmful gases from car exhaust.

QUICK NEWS, March 5: The Unrecognized Dinner Party Threat To Climate; New Energy Is Saving The World; New Energy Leaped Ahead In 2017 While Old Energy Dropped

The Unrecognized Dinner Party Threat To Climate Why what we eat is crucial to the climate change question; Our food – from what we eat to how it is grown – accounts for more carbon emissions than transport and yet staple crops will be...Show More Summary

Mynt Systems’ Cost Effective Net Zero Carbon Retrofit?

Mynt Systems energy efficiency retrofit of the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose, CA helps the facility reduce energy usage and bring the facility to Net Zero Carbon

Young Republicans Embrace Carbon Fee Proposal

Young Republicans at universities across America are backing a carbon fee plan proposed by James Baker and George Schultz. Is this an idea whose time has come or one that is dead on arrival?

Creating complex molecules in just a few steps

(Ruhr-University Bochum) Researchers have found a way to convert single bonds between carbon and hydrogen atoms in a chemical molecule into carbon-carbon bonds. This so-called C-H activation is considered a promising strategy for producing complex molecules from simple starting materials in just a few steps. Show More Summary

Clayton’s Coal: Labor Is All At Sea In Its Policy On Tackling Climate Change

Labor is trying to have a policy on shutting down coal and tackling climate change, without having a policy on shutting down coal or tackling climate change, writes Ben Eltham. The politics of carbon has never been kind to Labor, but the ALP is suddenly in the most climate trouble it has been since losing [...]Show More Summary

Cities Emit 60% More Carbon Than Thought

A new analysis finds that city planners have been under counting greenhouse gas emissions from a key contributor.

Carbon fiber waste used to improve water-draining concrete

Although the production of carbon fiber goods may be steadily increasing, recycling the material still remains challenging. Thanks to research being conducted at Washington State University, however, it may soon be possible to grindShow More Summary

As oceans acidify, it’s life or death for some marine animals (text and video)

Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the world’s oceans have been absorbing carbon dioxide caused by human activity.  Oceans act like a sponge to buffer the heating effects caused by excessive CO2 levels. Without it, the earth would be dangerously hot. But there’s a catch. Ocean acidification is described as climate change’s “evil twin.” […]

Ian Callum explains the design of the Jaguar I-Pace

Jaguar's I-Pace is finally here, and as expected the vehicle is an almost exact carbon copy of the concept bearing the same name that we saw unveiled at the 2016 Los Angeles auto show. Responsible for the design is Jaguar design director Ian Callum who took inspiration from the Jaguar C-X75 supercar concept of 2010 when first putting pen to paper...

Graphene material strengthens nerve signaling in the brain

Less than 20 years after it was developed, a thin, resilient sheet of carbon atoms with remarkable properties known as graphene is transforming biomedical fields as far flung as tissue engineering, neuroprosthetics and drug discover...
