Accelerating climate-smart practices on U.S. dairy farms

"In addition, the solutions to dramatically reduce U.S. dairy’s GHG footprint, including methane, are emerging and largely exist. These practices include a host of interventions such as digesters, which convert methane from manure into renewable natural gas; feed additives to help minimize the effect of enteric ("cow burp") emissions; energy efficiencies across dairy operations; and regenerative farming techniques that can improve soil health and potentially capture carbon in the soils."

Meet The Entrepreneurs Who Designed Pollution-Killing Plants

"The actual plants will be far larger once they’re ready for sale. The Neo P1 sits on a custom-designed tall stand that both maximizes its air-cleaning properties and allows it to be watered far less often. Initial testing, conducted in partnership with Ecole Mines-Telecom of Lille University, showed the new plant was up to 30 times more effective at removing VOCs from the air than the most efficient plants found in nature."

America Needs a National Nuclear Fusion Strategy

After decades of theories and experiments—not to mention public ridicule of the concept—nuclear fusion is close to becoming a reality.  Expert consensus suggests that power plants harnessing this vaunted energy source will operate on electrical grids by 2050, but the United States is woefully unprepared to deploy it on our shores. Only a coordinated “all-in”...

California’s Climate Policy Gets Burned

"While utilities rushed to meet state renewable energy mandates—one reason California’s electric rates are double those in neighboring states—tree-trimming and burying power lines were a low priority. Some of the state’s most destructive wildfires were caused by utility power lines and equipment."

PrairieFood: The Solution To Climate Change Is In The Soil

Erik Kobayashi-Solomon writes in Forbes about a Kansas-based sustainable agriculture startup. “When PrairieFood ‘slurry’ is applied to agricultural fields, the organisms within the soil think they have stumbled upon an all-you-can-eat buffet. They consume the carbon and provide ‘services’ to the crops (e.g., ‘fixing’ nitrogen – taking nitrogen out of the air and providing it...

A natural ally for climate resilience, disaster mitigation

"Natural infrastructure solutions, as National Wildlife Federation Chief Scientist Bruce Stein laid out, are often not only more cost-effective than traditional gray infrastructure, but they also can endure and recover from disasters better than human-made structures."
