Huge floating islands that convert atmospheric CO2 into fuel could prevent climate change, scientists say

Millions of floating islands that convert atmospheric carbon dioxide into fuel could help prevent the burning of fossil fuels in our climate. These proposed islands would be grouped together to create large-scale facilities that, if built enough, could ultimately offset global total fossil fuel emissions. A research team from Norway and Switzerland has submitted a proposal for solar methanol Islands' …

Atmospheric rivers pull California out of the drought and piling up in the snow

The atmospheric rivers that rain along the California coast also throw huge amounts of snow into the state's Sierra Nevada. Newly released NASA photos, taken four days and a year apart, show how much snow has fallen. In its press release, NASA highlighted Mammoth Mountain, which is now the snowiest ski resort in the United States, having reached more than …

Artificial meteor showers are the atmospheric spectacles no one has asked for

Artistic representation of the artificial meteor shower that may or may not look like this. Illustration: ALE Tomorrow morning, an Epsilon 4 rocket will be fired from the JAXA Uchinoura Space Center in Japan. On board is a satellite that can create artificial meteor shower by dropping tiny pellets from orbit. The resulting light show should produce stripes that are …

Scientists create mineral that can absorb atmospheric CO2 • Earth.com

New research from Trent University could revolutionize the way we capture and store carbon emissions into the atmosphere that could slow down climate change. According to the researchers, the solution lies in accelerating the formation of magnesite a mineral that can store carbon but takes thousands of years in nature. During the recent [19659002] Goldschmidt Conference in Boston, Trent researchers …
