Stratospheric Aerosol Injection – a radical solution to climate change

There are many ideas for things we can do on the ground to help lesson the damage of climate change, many of which are already in development or being used today. That being said, there’s still room for radical solutions like dumping sulfate particles into the stratosphere, called stratospheric aerosol injection, to protect us from the sun. Science fiction sounding? Yes but it’s a real suggestion.

Plastic Eating Bacteria – microorganisms in the fight against pollution

Plastic waste is a huge problem because we rely on the material for many, many things. Not just grocery bags and packaging either. Medical equipment, tech devices, inexpensive textiles, etc. The list is really endless. One day we may be able to dispose of plastic the same way we do food waste, with bacteria. Plastic eating bacteria isn’t here yet but it’s looking better and better for our future.

Science Feedback – check out this network of scientists fighting back against misleading news

Reading the news can be scary. Our practical minds know that headlines are meant to pull us in and articles are written with bias. In a perfect world we’ll do our research but sometimes we just don’t have the time. When it comes to science articles, Science Feedback is the site that sorts out the news so you know what to trust.

Climate Change Now – report shows that we’re already suffering

Climate change is something that we tend to think about in future terms. Which is to say we have to do something now because tomorrow (many years from now) will be bad if we don’t but this isn’t the case. Climate change is hurting us right now and people are not really so aware of that but they should be.

Acoustic Metamaterial – this innovation is a new way to block out noise

The modern world is super noisy. Technology makes a lot of sounds and many of them aren’t what we could call pleasant. They’re just loud but unfortunately noise canceling options are unwiedly and unattractive. That may change in the future with Acoustic Metamaterial, the new material that can cancel out 94% of sound.

Quantitative Science Studies – the newest open access journal

Access to full scholarly papers is expensive which means that people just aren’t able to access the raw information for their own studies or just to draw their own conclusions. The system is not one that’s greatly favored by people and in response to that, Quantitative Science Studies was created, the newest open access journal.
