High-Speed Storage Of CO2 Discovered In Bacteria Could Help Fight Climate Change

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way of high-speed storage of carbon dioxide in a bacterial enzyme that could eventually help fight climate change. The accumulation of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has led to a steadily worsening of the climate crisis, which has, in turn, urged…

Experts Head To Arctic To Assess Climate Change Impact Amid Record Heatwave

The legendary research vessel and icebreaker Polarstern has left Germany and is heading to the Arctic to assess the impact of climate change amid a record heatwave in Europe. Over the last 40 years, the Arctic's summer sea-ice extent has dropped by a staggering 40 per cent, scientists say, and…

Atmospheric air with low concentrations of carbon dioxide is passed through an aqueous solution of IPDA, where the carbon dioxide rapidly reacts to create a solid product. Carbon dioxide is subsequently re-released with mild heating of the product in suspension, for storage or new applications. (Tokyo Metropolitan University/Newsflash)

High Speed Carbon Dioxide Catcher Heralds New Era In Fight Against Climate Change

Researchers at Tokyo Metropolitan University have created what they say is the fastest carbon dioxide catcher ever, possibly heralding a new era in the fight against carbon emissions linked to climate change. The new carbon capture system is said to remove carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere "with unprecedented performance",…

Satellites And Drones Could Help Save Wild Bees

Scientists think that new ways of using satellites and drones could help protect bees and their habitats. Researchers at Devon’s Exeter University, southwest England, hope that innovative usage of modern technology will lead to earlier detection of threats to honeybees and the ecosystem. Honeybees and other pollinators provide a range…

How Climate Change Could Release World-Ending Super Bacteria

Strains of "superpower" bacteria that could cause the world's next deadly pandemic has been discovered by scientists in Antarctica. Researchers found that the bacteria have a built-in resistance to antibiotics that could make current treatments useless. https://youtu.be/aeF97SYb4ac Universidad de Chile/Newsflash The Chilean researchers made the shocking discovery during research into…

Adriatic Ecosystems Withstand Major Climate Shifts But Wither Under Human Impact

Human activities rather than climate change are having a more devastating effect on mollusk communities according to new research. An analysis of more than 70,000 fossils indicates that mollusk communities were incredibly resilient to major climatic shifts during the last ice age. Scientists from the Florida Museum of Natural History…

Urgent Action Required To Protect Worlds Coral Reefs From Disappearing Within Three Decades, Warn Experts

Scientists are proposing to expand the number of coral reefs sanctuaries to preserve species of marine life vital to local human populations and to stop them from disappearing within as little as three decades. They have offered six measures to be adopted by governments to help reefs continue to thrive…

Bee Diversity Vital For Healthy Ecosystems On Planet

Scientists assessing the level of diversity among bee species necessary for sustaining populations of wild plants have concluded that ecosystems rely on many bee species to flourish, not just a few dominant ones. The report, published in The Proceedings of the Royal Society B, supports the fundamental idea that biodiversity…

NASA Tracks Earths Forest Canopy From Space

NASA has announced that it has made a near-global estimate of forest biomass and the carbon it stores, thanks to its Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI). Until now, scientists had faced a significant gap in data on climate change by not having this information to hand. With the data produced…

Study Warns Amazon Is Near Tipping Point Of Transitioning From Rainforest To Savanna

Researchers analysing changes in vegetation biomass have warned that the Amazon rainforest risks transitioning to savanna, with dire consequences for global warming. The vast Amazon rainforest covers 2,100,000 square miles in nine different nations. It counts for over half of the world's rainforest and is the largest and most biodiverse…
