Climate Scientists Take Their Closest Look Yet at the Warming Impact of Aviation Emissions

By Leto Sapunar A new study reaffirms that contrail clouds produce more global warming than carbon dioxide, a finding that could help in the reduction of emissions from air travel. An international team of prominent scientists has published what they say is the most comprehensive study to date calculating the complex climate impact of aviation

Doubling down on climate change and censorship

By Caleb Rossiter and Patrick Michaels A year ago, we showed in a Washington Examiner op-ed that the mathematical computer models used to promote global warming fears had been, for years, systematically overpredicting the rate of warming in the tropical lower atmosphere, typically by a factor of three. This touched off a hysterical response, starting with censorship. Facebook

Coal, growth and carbon tax

By Bienvenido S. Oplas, Jr. Among the major economic challenges for governments worldwide in dealing with this pandemic is where to raise new revenues as their expenditures and borrowings have greatly increased while their regular revenues have decreased. In the Philippines, among the groups to mention and lobby again for a carbon tax are the

CO2 reduction driven by a pH gradient

CO2 Coalition: New research examines how vital reduced carbon might have become available to early life on Earth. By Reuben Hudson et al. Significance Biology is built of organic molecules, which originate primarily from the reduction of CO2 through several carbon-fixation pathways. Only one of these—the Wood–Ljungdahl acetyl-CoA pathway—is energetically profitable overall and present in

Scientists Develop Cosmetic Cushion Made of CO2

DAEJEON, Sept. 15 (Korea Bizwire) — South Korean researchers have developed a cosmetic cushion using carbon dioxide (CO2). The Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology (KRICT) announced on Monday that it had developed a polyurethane cosmetic cushion and a heat-insulating building material using CO2, in collaboration with two local companies, Pusan National University and Inje University. The
