21.03.29~20.04.04 Bill Gates – Backed Plot to Manipulate Weather/Climate Scrubbed

…Headlines were made last month when plans  to manipulate the weather/climate in an ambitious experiment went public; however, it appears the Bill Gates – backed plot to do so has been scrubbed for now. After getting push-back from people around the world and in Sweden, where the initial experiment was to unfold, a decision was made not to pursue...

20.11.23~20.11.29 Climate change could bring the start of Autumn forward by almost a WEEK because trees are capturing more carbon causing leaves to fall sooner

The start of autumn could begin a week sooner in the future due to climate change causing trees to capture more carbon and drop their leaves earlier in the year....However, a new, large-scale study of European trees by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology has found this trend has started to reverse and leaves are falling earlier.  The new discovery...

20.10.26~20.11.01 Google partners with U.S. NOAA for environment and climate research

Luxembourg, 27 October 2020. – Google partners with the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to develop its environmental monitoring, weather forecasting, and climate research system. Google and NOAA cooperate on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) systems, using the Google cloud infrastructure and satellite technologies, to develop “full-scale prototypes that NOAA could ultimately operationalize across its organization”,...

20.10.19~20.10.25 Up to 0.9 gigatonnes more CO2 absorbed by oceans each year than scientists thought

Scientists have been underestimating the amount of carbon our oceans absorb from the atmosphere each year. Previous estimates indicated that about a quarter of the emissions caused by human activity were drawn into the ocean. In other words, more than 2 gigatonnes of CO2 per year. Researchers supported by the EU-funded 4C and RINGO projects have found that the...

20.10.12~20.10.18 NASA Supercomputing Study Breaks Ground For Tree Mapping, Carbon Research

Scientists from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and international collaborators demonstrated a new method for mapping the location and size of trees growing outside of forests, discovering billions of trees in arid and semi-arid regions and laying the groundwork for more accurate global measurement of carbon storage on land. Using powerful supercomputers and machine learning algorithms, the...

‘20.08.24~’20.08.30 A Wireless Device Creating Fuel From Sunlight, CO2 and Water

Researchers have developed a standalone device that converts sunlight, CO2, and water into a carbon-neutral fuel, without any additional electricity.Researchers have developed a standalone device that converts sunlight, carbon dioxide (CO2) and water into a carbon-neutral fuel, without requiring any additional components or electricity. The device, developed by a team from the University of Cambridge, is a significant step...
