Ryan Dezember writes in The Wall Street Journal on a new innovation that could reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
- Researchers at MIT have created a compound using odor soaking clay from cat litter that can effectively trap methane and convert it into CO2.
- Scientists say that global emissions from methane, a greenhouse gas that is far more potent than carbon dioxide, need to be reduced by 45% by 2030 to prevent the worst of climate change’s impacts.
- While converting methane into CO2 is not a silver bullet solution to climate change, it may give researchers and innovators more time to create durable climate solutions.
