Things Are Good: Global Carbon Output Decreases

In order to avert catastrophic climate change we need to dramatically cut global carbon output. That’s what the Paris Agreement is all about and it comes in to force in just three more days. The really good news is not just that we have decreased carbon output it’s also that the Paris Agreement is . . . → Read More: Things Are Good: Global Carbon Output Decreases

Things Are Good: We Can Use Nanotechnology to Scrub CO2

Scientists working with nanotechnology to try and create methanol from CO2 accidentally discovered that they made ethanol. Happy accidents are always welcomed – particularly when it can help the environment in multiple ways. The electrochemical process uses tiny spikes of carbon and copper to turn carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into ethanol. This is . . . → Read More: Things Are Good: We Can Use Nanotechnology to Scrub CO2

Things Are Good: Putting CO2 Emissions on a Map

In the fight to curb CO2 emissions and hold back the rate of increasing climate change, researches have mapped out where the emissions are coming from. Unsurprisingly, they have found that where there is a lot of human activity there are more emissions. This will help convince naysayers and ignoramuses that humans are at fault […]

Things Are Good: Sucking Diesel Fuel From Thin Air

We’ve polluted so much that there are now companies that think there is profit to be made by sucking CO2 from the air. How they make money is by reselling the CO2 to make carbonation for soft drinks, or strangely, to make diesel fuel.

What a world!

German company Sunfire produced its first batches of . . . → Read More: Things Are Good: Sucking Diesel Fuel From Thin Air

Things Are Good: Small Algae Canopy Produces as Much Oxygen as a Forest

Algae is amazing and as we find more ways to use the powerful, small, creatures we’ll improve our carbon footprints. Already algae is used to clean sewage, clean landfills, and so much more.

This week at the Milan Expo EcoLogics Studio revealed their algae canopy for urban centres. The canopy provides shade while cleaning the . . . → Read More: Things Are Good: Small Algae Canopy Produces as Much Oxygen as a Forest

LeDaro: Fate of the Earth

Is it possible that the Planet Earth can become a totally barren planet in the not too distant future? In particular if the CO2 emissions and pollution continue at the current or accelerated rate?

cartoon life: Fixing the World’s problems

I’ve discovered what ‘sardonic’ means.

I mean this is a perfectly workable plan isn’t it? And after all, Carbon Dioxide isn’t strictly speaking a chemical weapon or poisonous gas. Plants love it! Not like Sarin or Chlorine. Best of all, nobody suffers. They just fall asleep.
