2.7-million-year-old ice opens window on past

18-Aug-2017 | Paul Voosen, Science , 2017

A core drilled in Antarctica in 2015 has yielded 2.7-million-year-old ice, an astonishing find 1.7 million years older than the previous record-holder. Bubbles in the ice contain greenhouse gases from Earth's atmosphere at a time when the planet's cycles of glacial advance and retreat were just ...


Best cost estimate of greenhouse gases

18-Aug-2017 | R. Revesz; M. Greenstone; M. Hanemann; M. Livermore; T. Sterner; D. Grab; P. Howard; J. Schwartz, Science , 2017

In March, President Trump's Executive Order 13783 disbanded the Interagency Working Group on the Social Cost of Greenhouse Gases (IWG) ([ 1 ][1]). IWG developed estimates for federal agencies to use in cost-benefit analyses of climate policies. IWG's most recent central estimate was $50 in global


A cirrus cloud climate dial?

21-Jul-2017 | Ulrike Lohmann; Blaž Gasparini, Science , 2017

Climate engineering is a potential means to offset the climate warming caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gases. Suggested methods broadly fall into two categories. Methods in the first category aim to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere, whereas those in the second aim to alter ...

Toward a sustainable bioeconomy in West Africa: A focus on biorefining

14-Jul-2017 | Eugene Fletcher, Peter Temitope Adeboye, Kwabena O. Duedu, Biofuels, Bioproducts and Biorefining, 2017

Abstract Considering its size and expanding population, Africa needs to play a more active role in preventing global warming. The economy of most West African countries is driven by agriculture and the export of processed wood resulting in the generation of tons of wood and agricultural waste. ...


Overestimate of committed warming

12-Jul-2017 | Gavin A. Schmidt; Jeff Severinghaus; Ayako Abe-Ouchi; Richard B. Alley; Wallace Broecker; Ed Brook; David Etheridge; ..., Nature, 2017

Overestimate of committed warming Nature 547, 7662 (2017). doi:10.1038/nature22803 Authors: Gavin A. Schmidt, Jeff Severinghaus, Ayako Abe-Ouchi, Richard B. Alley, Wallace Broecker, Ed Brook, David Etheridge, Kenji Kawamura, Ralph F. Keeling, ...


Gas fermentation for commodity chemicals and fuels

11-Jul-2017 | Frank R. Bengelsdorf, Peter Dürre, Microbial Biotechnology, 2017

Summary Gas fermentation is a microbial process that contributes to at least four of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. The process converts waste and greenhouse gases into commodity chemicals and fuels. Thus, world's climate is positively affected. Briefly, we ...


Life‐cycle assessment of torrefied coppice willow co‐firing with lignite coal in an existing pulverized coal boiler

30-Jun-2017 | Kurt Woytiuk, David Sanscartier, Beyhan Y. Amichev, William Campbell, Ken Van Rees, Biofuels, Bioproducts and Biorefining, 2017

Abstract Coal‐fired electricity generation is a major emitter of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in Canada and the Federal Government has taken steps toward mandated reduction in GHG emissions. One pathway to reduced emissions is via co‐firing of coal with short‐rotation coppice (SRC) willow grown on ...


Energies, Vol. 10, Pages 890: Minimization of Construction Costs for an All Battery-Swapping Electric-Bus Transportation System: Comparison with an All Plug-In System

30-Jun-2017 | Fang, Shyang-Chyuan ; Ke, Bwo-Ren ; Chung, Chen-Yuan, Energies, 2017

The greenhouse gases and air pollution generated by extensive energy use have exacerbated climate change. Electric-bus (e-bus) transportation systems help reduce pollution and carbon emissions. This study analyzed the minimization of construction costs for an all battery-swapping public e-bus ...


Can U.S. states and cities overcome Paris exit?

09-Jun-2017 | Warren Cornwall, Science , 2017

President Donald Trump's announcement that his administration will withdraw from the Paris climate agreement has sent researchers scrambling for their calculators. While political analysts assess the diplomatic and domestic fallout from the decision to take the world's second largest emitter of ...
