Medicine & TechnologySeveral research projects are attempting to use existing conditions on Mars to fuel future missions. Now, a team of researchers is experimenting on turning greenhouse gases to create rocket fuel on the Red Planet.
A recent report from the US Energy Information Administration said that electric vehicles adoption is not fast enough to meet climate goals as the transportation sector becomes the largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.
Wildfires in Siberia are reportedly emitting two times the number of greenhouse gases last year in just two and a half months, as estimated by the European Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS).
A relatively small but growing body of research suggests that pastured livestock, such as cows, could have a carbon-negative effect on the environment by sequestering greenhouse gases under well-managed grasslands.
NASA has calculated the distinct evidence that shows how humans are causing climate change. Specifically, it has calculated the specific driving forces of recent climate change through direct satellite observations.
Researchers have concluded that sewer plants serving municipalities worldwide offer a major option for capturing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Although cautioning that research and development is needed before the systems could be deployed, the team identified several potentially viable paths to using sewage as a carbon sink — that is, sewer plants could clean the atmosphere as they clean water.
