And that’s not quite the same as having things the other way around. If you see Criegee biradicals as silver bullet, remember they are already constantly being fired up…
Current practice is to grind and burn enormous amounts of limestone, releasing equally enormous amounts of CO2 to the atmosphere. But isn’t there some way to reverse the chemical process and still end up with building material?
Geoengineering can be compared to taking a pill for being overweight. Instead of trying to tackle the root of the problem, it tries to cure the symptoms. But like medicine for reducing obesity we will probably need it in the … Continue reading
Clouds can have a large impact on global climate. Depending on conditions they can either trap or reflect the sun’s heat. Scientists at CERN have now determined that organic vapours released by Earth’s organisms play a far more significant role … Continue reading
Here’s another climate model study that challenges the Arctic tipping point idea. Arctic melting is still sensitive to temperature rise though and any further increase in atmospheric CO2 will keep translating to further ice loss. According to the new NASA … Continue reading
Breeding crops with deeper (and larger) root systems could help to lower atmospheric CO2 levels, while also making the crops better drought-resistant, Douglas Kell, a Professor of Bioanalytical Science at the University of Manchester says.
Chemists of Lehigh University have engineered new porous materials to adsorb [adhesion of gas to surface] both CO2 and methane from flue gas.
A strange publication with an interesting conclusion.
