When Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere increases so does the need to remove the cumulative greenhouse gas from the atmosphere in an efficient manner. Numerous researchers and companies have been researching new methods of carbon capture and removal for years, and one company in Iceland has started collecting CO2 and storing it
A new study has found that scientists may have grossly underestimated the future rate of Earth’s sea level rise, in light of the world’s ice sheets melting at an accelerated speed. The study’s projections agree with the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) worst-case scenario of sea level
Engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a new, energy efficient electrochemical-based device that can capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, the chief ingredient in anthropogenic-caused global warming. This new device operates much like a battery, in that it can absorb carbon dioxide from air that is pumped
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued a dire warning that our current efforts at addressing the problem of climate change are not keeping pace with the increase of the rate of global warming, and that we need to act quickly if we are to avoid evoking the more immediate catastrophes that come with allowing the planet’s climate to rise past 1.5ºC (2.7ºF) above the pre-industrial average. This warning comes with the admission that we can indeed meet this seemingly impossible goal, but it comes at a cost: the human community needs to cut its carbon emissions by nearly half in the next 12 years.
