Energies, Vol. 9, Pages 677: Modeling and Optimization of the Thermal Performance of a Wood-Cement Block in a Low-Energy House Construction

24-Aug-2016 | Nardi, Iole ; de Rubeis, Tullio ; Buzzi, Edoardo ; Sfarra, Stefano ; Ambrosini, Dario ; Paoletti, Domenica, Energies, 2016

The reduction of building energy consumption requires appropriate planning and design of the building’s envelope. In the last years, new innovative materials and construction technologies used in new or refurbished buildings have been developed in order to achieve this objective, which are also ...


Tropical anvil clouds and climate sensitivity [Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences]

09-Aug-2016 | Dennis L. Hartmann, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2016

The surface temperature of Earth is being increased by human activities, principally by the release of greenhouse gases (1). Future warming will depend upon the rate at which greenhouse gases are released and the sensitivity of Earth’s surface temperature to those increased greenhouse gases. An ...


Bioremediation at a global scale: from the test tube to planet Earth

04-Aug-2016 | Víctor Lorenzo, Philippe Marlière, Ricard Solé, Microbial Biotechnology, 2016

Summary Planet Earth's biosphere has evolved over billions of years as a balanced bio‐geological system ultimately sustained by sunpower and the large‐scale cycling of elements largely run by the global environmental microbiome. Humans have been part of this picture for much of their ...


Targeting methanogenesis with a nitrooxypropanol bullet [Agricultural Sciences]

31-May-2016 | Stephen W. Ragsdale, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2016

There is no substitute for dramatic reductions in the emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases to mitigate the negative consequences of climate change and, concurrently, to reduce ocean acidification. Mitigation, although technologically feasible, has been difficult to achieve for political, ...


[Special Issue Review] City-integrated renewable energy for urban sustainability

20-May-2016 | Daniel M. Kammen; Deborah A. Sunter, Science , 2016

To prepare for an urban influx of 2.5 billion people by 2050, it is critical to create cities that are low-carbon, resilient, and livable. Cities not only contribute to global climate change by emitting the majority of anthropogenic greenhouse gases but also are particularly vulnerable to the ...


Energies, Vol. 9, Pages 329: Forecasting the Allocative Efficiency of Carbon Emission Allowance Financial Assets in China at the Provincial Level in 2020

04-May-2016 | Zeng, Shihong ; Xu, Yan ; Wang, Liming ; Chen, Jiuying ; Li, Qirong, Energies, 2016

As the result of climate change and deteriorating global environmental quality, nations are under pressure to reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases per unit of GDP. China has announced that it is aiming not only to reduce carbon emission per unit of GDP, but also to consume increased amounts ...


Anthropogenic aerosols are a potential cause for migration of the summer monsoon rain belt in China [Physical Sciences]

19-Apr-2016 | Shaocai Yu; Pengfei Li; Liqiang Wang; Peng Wang; Si Wang; Shucheng Chang; Weiping Liu; Kiran Alapaty, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2016

It has been proposed that the current and future global warming caused by increased greenhouse gases can produce a northward shift of the Earth’s rain belt (1). This conclusion is supported by a recent study in PNAS by Yang et al. (2) in which the carbon isotope composition of 21...


Energies, Vol. 9, Pages 75: Analysis of a Solar Cooling System for Climatic Conditions of Five Different Cities of Saudi Arabia

27-Jan-2016 | Rafique, M. Mujahid; Rehman, Shafiqur ; Lashin, Aref ; Al Arifi, Nassir, Energies, 2016

Air high in humidity leads to uncomfortable conditions and promotes the growth of different fungi and bacteria, which may cause health problems. The control of moisture content in the air using traditional air conditioning techniques is not a suitable option due to large consumption of primary ...


Environmental and economic impacts of different sugarcane production systems in the ethanol biorefinery

22-Dec-2015 | Mateus F. Chagas, Ricardo O Bordonal, Otávio Cavalett, João Luis N Carvalho, Antonio Bonomi, Newton La Scala, Biofuels, Bioproducts and Biorefining, 2015

Abstract Economic and environmental impacts of ethanol biorefineries with different sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) production technologies are evaluated with a focus on harvesting systems, reduced tillage, controlled traffic farming to reduce soil compaction, and alternatives of sugarcane ...


[In Depth] Carbon trackers could help bolster climate vows

18-Dec-2015 | Warren Cornwall, Science , 2015

After negotiators left the Paris climate summit last week with vows to curb the world's climate pollution, officials will want to know whether countries are living up to their promises. Scientists today are in the early stages of deploying systems they hope could buttress international agreements ...
