Desert Greening Attributed to Rising CO2

If elevated CO2 causes the water use of individual leaves to drop, plants in arid environments will respond by increasing their total numbers of leaves. These changes in leaf cover can be detected by satellite, particularly in deserts and savannas where the cover is less complete than in wet locations, according to Dr Donohue.

Carbon Sponge Could Absorb Coal Emissions

This press release today brings potentially good news concerning the reduction of GHG emissions from coal-powered energy plants. Emissions from coal power stations could be drastically reduced by a new, energy-efficient material that adsorbs large amounts of carbon dioxide, then releases it when exposed to sunlight. In a study published today in¬†Angewandte Chemie, Monash University […]
