Unsurprisingly, the salesperson states that “spite” isn’t an acceptable condition for a refund. Maybe

New research suggests plants might be able to absorb more CO2 from human activities than previously expected

Credit: CC0 Public Domain New research published in Science Advances paints an uncharacteristically upbeat picture for the planet. This is because more realistic ecological modeling suggests the world’s plants may be able to take up more atmospheric CO2 from human activities than previously predicted. Despite this headline finding, the environmental scientists behind the research are

New research finds that nature-based solutions are essential for Brazil to meet its 2050 net zero pledge

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Without the implementation of nature-based solutions, in particular ending deforestation and restoring native vegetation, Brazil would jeopardize its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) pledges including achieving net zero GHG emissions by mid-century, according to research published today from an international team led by the University of Oxford. The study also concluded that

Cold storage research could put a freeze on red meat waste

With Australian households wasting over 140,000 metric tons of meat a year, experts say there’s a growing need to understand how people are using, or not able to effectively use

Genetic research is identifying disease-resistant super corals in the Caribbean

Credit: Coral Restoration Foundation Witnessing disease outbreaks that have nearly annihilated staghorn coral colonies in the Caribbean, Northeastern scientist Steven Vollmer wondered what lessons a few lone survivors might offer for the future of coral reefs. Would it be possible to identify disease-resistant corals by their genetic makeup? And if the hardier types were specially

Research presents new development model for the world’s third-longest river
