How trees could save the climate

ETH Zurich The Crowther Lab at ETH Zurich investigates nature-based solutions to climate change. In their latest study the researchers showed for the first time where in the world new trees could grow and how much carbon they would store. Study lead author and postdoc at the Crowther Lab Jean-François Bastin explains: “One aspect was…

Light-powered nano-organisms consume CO2, create eco-friendly plastics and fuels

University of Colorado at Boulder University of Colorado Boulder researchers have developed nanobio-hybrid organisms capable of using airborne carbon dioxide and nitrogen to produce a variety of plastics and fuels, a promising first step toward low-cost carbon sequestration and eco-friendly manufacturing for chemicals. By using light-activated quantum dots to fire particular enzymes within microbial cells,…

Simplest climate model yet – a bathtub

Climate change: How could artificial photosynthesis contribute to limiting global warming? Scientists calculate areas needed for forestation and artificial photosynthesis After several years during which global emissions at least stagnated, they rose again somewhat in 2017 and 2018. Germany has also clearly missed its climate targets. In order to keep global warming below 2 degrees…

Climate warming experiment finds unexpected results

From Phys.org January 4, 2019 by Emily Pontecorvo, American Geophysical Union Tropical forests store about a third of Earth’s carbon and about two-thirds of its above-ground biomass. Most climate change models predict that as the world warms, all of that biomass will decompose more quickly, which would send a lot more carbon dioxide into the…
