Green Light Gap Crossed – new research adds some viability to different type of green energy

Plants are really good at getting energy from the sun. It’s kind of their whole thing. Although we can sort of copy the process, photosynthesis hasn’t been seen as a viable source of energy because it cannot convert green light making it not a candidate for technical applications but that may be changing as a research team has been successful in creating a process that fills this gap.

Our Dirt Is Wonderful – the amount of soil we have can store massive amounts of carbon

Hey, good news! We already have enough soil to absorb 5.5 billion tonnes of CO2 every year but we have to make choices to protect it so it can help us out. If we just leave the dirt alone, it will do the work for us but the hard part is. . . leaving it alone.

Ice loss is speeding up and this is not great. The more ice that melts, the higher the seas rise which puts more people in danger from coastal flooding and displacement. Doing what we can to slow the climate crisis is one thing but we must all be prepared for a world where our coasts are different.
