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 ...


[Feature] Born to rewild

04-Dec-2015 | Eli Kintisch, Science , 2015

Ecologist Sergey Zimov and his son Nikita have created Pleistocene Park, a 14,000-hectare reserve near the Arctic town of Chersky, Russia. Founded 19 years ago, it's a grand experiment to test whether large herbivores—elk, moose, reindeer, horses, and bison—can, by grazing, bring back a ...


Energies, Vol. 8, Pages 12997-13020: Comparing World Economic and Net Energy Metrics, Part 3: Macroeconomic Historical and Future Perspectives

17-Nov-2015 | King, Carey W., Energies, 2015

I use energy cost share to characterize the role of energy in the economy. Specifically, I use an estimate of monetary expenditures for primary energy on an annualized basis for forty-four countries from 1978 to 2010 for natural gas, coal, petroleum, and electricity. I show that global energy ...


[In Brief] This week's section

23-Oct-2015 | Science , 2015

In science news around the world, the results of this week's Canadian elections cheer scientists, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency releases rules to tighten emissions restrictions on potent greenhouse gases known as hydrofluorocarbons, scientists add new apps to Apple's open-source health ...
