A recent study reveals shocking figures telling that, basically, traveling by train pollutes the environment more than traveling by airplane. How can that be?
In the late 1980s, during the Montreal Protocol that set rules for the chlorofluorocarbon emissions, methyl bromide was about to become a target, to reduce it for saving the ozone layer. So, from a poplar compound used in agriculture, it became an “outlaw”.
Certain bright minds say we should throw trillions of mirrors into space to slow global warming. It doesn’t seem like a bad idea at a first glance, but other enlightened thoughts say we should release chemicals into the air to do just that.
Founded by scientists from the University of Colorado, ION Engineering has brought in sight a new technology that uses ionic liquids – nonvolatile molten salts – to capture carbon emissions.
As scientists say nowadays that we are on a point of no return with global warming, they are also giving us solutions that could patch the problem and bring us to the pre-industrial climate.
Pennsylvania State University researchers found out a way to transform the messy CO2 from the atmosphere into burnable gas, with the help of the Sun. They made use of nanotechnology for this matter, and their results showed a 20 times yield, compared to other findings.
East Asian countries have an abundance of low efficiency, high carbon dioxide emitting heating sources. The Japanese scientists are working to develop new heating systems, with less harmful environmental impact.
Low tech solutions are sometimes the best thing one can do to save the planet. For instance, a new carbon sequestration method arises through a newly published paper. The research says that this method can cut CO2 emissions by 15% per year. How is this done? Simply enough a 5th grader could understand.
National Science Foundation proved after a long study that nitrogen added to soil can make forests absorb more dioxide carbon. But even if nitrogen is one of the most abundant element in the atmosphere, it’s still a pollutant and can have a dramatic influence on the planet’s environment.
New patent to reduce global temperature: inventor Ron Acer said that spraying ocean water in the air around deserts, major arid areas or windy places near to water will cool down the Earth temperature.
Lead researcher Professor Rob Raiswell, from Leeds University, said: “The Earth itself seems to want to save us”. He discovered a shocking truth: melting icebergs can trigger a reaction that naturally sinks the CO2 out of the atmosphere and create an equilibrium by feedback to the global warming and CO2 emissions.
I don’t know what to believe anymore, sometimes. We seem to run of global warming, we reduce pollution and try to “green” ourselves through electric cars, solar cells and wind mills, yet scientists (as if all this global warming mess is all on their football field) say there will still be global warming due to the heat our machines, as a whole, emit in the ecosystem.
Germany has an ongoing plan to store their CO2 emissions underground. They used a special drill during tests earlier this year for the carbon capture project in Ketzin. The GFZ geoscience institute says that Germany will inaugurate Europe’s first underground carbon dioxide storage site.
