Turning back the clock on climate change is a battle fought on many fronts. While we’re switching over to sustainable energy sources, there still needs to be done with the emissions that being poured into our air now. One researcher has developed a powder that can capture emissions keeping them out of the air and shows some promise.

Hydropower and Droughts – when the water dries up, emissions increase

Hydropower is a familiar clean energy option but when there’s no water, there’s a definite increase in emissions from other less sustainable energy sources. This may seem like a no brainer but with the possibility of increasing droughts due to climate change, this could spell big trouble for many clean energy efforts.

Snow, it’s more important than people think. If you’re just living in a city, it’s the white stuff that makes your morning commute a hassle but for people in certain parts of the world that rely on winter snowfall to create the green pastures of spring, the lack of it is causing big problems. No worries though, science can make more with cloud seeding but it has some drawbacks.
