How A Technology From Iceland Is Fighting Climate Change – Robert Rapier

Iceland is unique among countries in that it obtains nearly all its electricity from renewable energy. Iceland's glacial rivers contribute about 70% of its electricity via hydropower, and the country's ~200 volcanoes enable geothermal to make up most of the rest. Today, humans are depleting fossil fuel resources, and in turn pumping carbon dioxide into … Continue reading How A Technology From Iceland Is Fighting Climate Change – Robert Rapier

Climate Change Can Be Stopped by Turning Air Into Gasoline – Robinson Meyer

A team of scientists from Harvard University and the company Carbon Engineering announced on Thursday that they have found a method to cheaply and directly pull carbon-dioxide pollution out of the atmosphere. If their technique is successfully implemented at scale, it could transform how humanity thinks about the problem of climate change. It could give … Continue reading Climate Change Can Be Stopped by Turning Air Into Gasoline – Robinson Meyer

A Tale of Two Communities – People & Fish – Recovering from Harvey By Larry McKinney

One year after Hurricane Harvey hammered the Texas coast, divergent pictures of recovery and resilience have emerged. The coastal marine communities of fish, shrimp and crabs that thrive along our Gulf coast, are dynamic, resilient and on the mend. The coastal human communities are also dynamic but their resilience is being challenged. The coastal marine … Continue reading A Tale of Two Communities – People & Fish – Recovering from Harvey By Larry McKinney

Let’s All Take a Breath and Read That ‘Hothouse Earth’ Paper – Maddie Stone

If the past year of floods, fires, heat waves, and droughts are any indicator, climate change is going to be rough. But in case you weren’t already alarmed, a team of prominent climate scientists has penned a paper warning that just two degrees Celsius of human-caused warming could send us spiraling toward a “hothouse Earth”—one … Continue reading Let’s All Take a Breath and Read That ‘Hothouse Earth’ Paper – Maddie Stone

When The Weather Is Extreme, Is Climate Change To Blame – Laurel Wamsley

Dramatic weather events happened this past week in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere. There were wildfires in Greece, Scandinavia, and the Western U.S. Flooding followed record rainfalls in the Northeast.
