Long before the COVID-19 pandemic and the most recent governmental and industry targets made around the world to curb greenhouse gas emissions and phase out fossil fuels, universities and research institutes have been steadily leading by example to advance a strong environmental future.  The Office for Science and Technology of the Embassy of France inContinue reading “Symposium June 7-9: Carbon Reduction Efforts by Academia”

Climate Change Evidence from 150-Year-Old Research Voyages

For the first time, scientists have used ocean measurements taken on research voyages almost 150 years ago to learn more about how human activity has impacted climate change.  Scientists from the U.K. National Oceanography Centre (NOC) and the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) have made the first combined study of water density measurements from theContinue reading “Climate Change Evidence from 150-Year-Old Research Voyages”

Report Highlights Role of Ocean in Carbon Solutions

The Marine Conservation Society has launched a new report in partnership with Rewilding Britain that highlights the need to look to blue carbon solutions in tandem with those on land to help the U.K. reach net zero by 2050. The significant role of the world’s forests in helping to reduce carbon emissions has been recognized, resultingContinue reading “Report Highlights Role of Ocean in Carbon Solutions”

Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality by 2050

Reaching zero net emissions of carbon dioxide from energy and industry by 2050 can be accomplished by rebuilding U.S. energy infrastructure to run primarily on renewable energy, at a net cost of about $1 per person per day, according to new research.  In a new study in AGU Advances, researchers created the first published roadmapContinue reading “Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality by 2050”

Biden Advances Climate Agenda

U.S. President Joe Biden is taking executive action to tackle the climate crisis nationally and abroad, including re-establishing the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. These Executive Orders build on the actions that the president took on his first day in office, including rejoining the Paris Agreement and immediate review of rollbacks ofContinue reading “Biden Advances Climate Agenda”
