Stanford study casts doubt on carbon capture

Stanford University One proposed method for reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in the atmosphere – and reducing the risk of climate change – is to capture carbon from the air or prevent it from getting there in the first place. However, research from Mark Z. Jacobson at Stanford University, published in Energy and Environmental Science,…

Clay minerals call the shots with carbon

Rivers discharge a constant supply of sediment into the world’s oceans. This sediment is largely composed of various clay minerals – the products of rock weathering – and organic compounds of plant origin that have decomposed in soils. These two components end up in rivers as a result of erosion. On its way to the…

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…
