Is Straw Germany's Next Big Energy Resource?

Straw from agriculture could play an important role in the future energy mix for Germany. Up until now it has been underutilised as a biomass residue and waste material. These were the conclusions of a study conducted by the TLL (Thueringian regional institute for agriculture), the DBFZ (German biomass research ... keep reading

Depleting Marine Ecosystems Discovered to be Effective Carbon Sinks.

Researchers at the University of Western Australia have found out that some marine plant ecosystems can develop strategies to adapt to, and even mitigate, climate change.  Professor Carlos Duarte, Director of UWA's Oceans Institute  said seagrass, mangrove and salt-march ecosystems ranked among the world's most intense carbon sinks ... keep reading

Thinking Outside the Bubble

Financial bubbles can wreak havoc on industries (think dot com) or commodities (like gold). Investor excitement builds, asset prices skyrocket, and eventually enthusiasm gives way to a crash, wiping out huge amounts of value practically overnight. In short, the bubble bursts. It’s time we extended this framework to a ... keep reading

A Quick Fix for Carbon Sinks

  The ability of tropical forests to store carbon is affected by the availability of nitrogen, a major element that limits plant growth, particularly when recovering from natural or human disturbances. Trees that can convert (or fix) atmospheric nitrogen into biologically essential nutrients provide an important fraction of the nitrogen needed ... keep reading

European Forests are Reaching a Carbon Saturation Point

As forests begin to thin and countries continue to pour emissions into their atmosphere, the delicate natural cycle that allows trees to soak in atmospheric CO2 is continually disrupted.  The natural worlds inability to return to a balanced state in the carbon cycle can partially be attributed to the natural ... keep reading

Air Pollution is Ocean Pollution

    Our ocean is changing rapidly from the burning of fossil fuels. Last week an unfortunate milestone was reached, carbon dioxide levels in the air passed 400 parts per million (ppm) according to the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. These results mark the highest carbon dioxide levels in human history and ... keep reading

Carbon-Sequestering Agriculture: A Promising Solution

  Global agriculture is currently a major contributor of carbon emissions. However, there are crops and practices that can reverse that trend, actively sequestering carbon while producing food and other essential human needs. The first component of this strategy is the use of perennial crops, like trees and other long-lived plants ... keep reading

Biochar Slashes Bioenergy Soil Emissions

  Adding charcoal to land used to grow bioenergy crops can greatly increase their overall benefit in helping cut our greenhouse-gas emissions, scientists have shown. Applying so-called 'biochar' before planting energy crops can cut soil greenhouse-gas emissions by around a third. Soils are among the biggest sources of UK emissions, and ... keep reading
