car90% of Truck CO2 Emissions Could be Captured and Liquified into Fuel

Researchers at EPFL have patented capturing CO2 directly from a trucks’ exhaust system and liquefying it in a box on the vehicle’s roof. The liquid CO2 is then delivered to a service station, where it is turned into conventional fuel …

climate changeWorld Emits 37 Billion Tons of CO2 for 0.6% Increase But USA CO2 Emissions Drops 1.7%

The Global Carbon Project reported that world CO2 emissions reached 37 billion tons per year in 2019. This was an increase from the 36.6 billion tons emission estimate for 2018. This was a 0.6% increase from 2018. There was 2.1 …

carbon captureMIT Makes Better Industrial Carbon Capture Technology But It is 100 Times More Costly Than Trees

MIT had made a solid-state faradaic electro-swing reactive adsorption system comprising an electrochemical cell that exploits the reductive addition of CO2 to quinones for carbon capture. The reported device is compact and flexible, obviates the need for ancillary equipment, and …

climate changeGenetically Engineered Plants To Reduce Atmospheric Methane and Global Warming

Guest Post by Neil Farbstein Neil Farbstein contact info; vnbcibnc@gmail.com Methane in the atmosphere is a very potent greenhouse gas. Over a 20-year period, methane traps 84 times more heat per mass unit than carbon dioxide. There is a distinct …

climate changeBoosting Plants to Close the CO2 Absorption Gap

Terrestrial plants (land based plants) are removing about 29 percent of our emissions that would otherwise contribute to growth of the atmospheric CO2 concentration. What Lucas Cernusak, ecoyphysiologist from James Cook University in Australia, model analysis showed is that the …

climate changeLet’s Stop Pretending That Good Plans Have Been Tried to Fix the Climate

Jonathan Franzen wrote an article at the New Yorker called “What if We Stopped Pretending – We need to Admit we cannot prevent the climate apocalypse”. This article is full of incorrect beliefs and statements. Franzen says – “The struggle …

climate changeEmpress Trees Are The Best Tree to Solve Global Carbon Dioxide Problem

Adding about 10% more global forest using Empress Splendor trees would offset all of the CO2 generated by human civilization each year. The US and Canada have 3.2 billion acres of forest (1.3 billion hectares). Forests cover 31 percent of …

climate changeTrees for a Complete Solution to Extra CO2 and Climate Change

A new study of trees from the journal Science indicates that added trees could store 830 billion tons of CO2. The world has room for 900 million hectares of trees. This would be over 1 trillion trees added to the …
