Exclusive: To decarbonise hydrogen power, get over the rainbow

"...Within the past year, public and private sector leaders worldwide have made ambitious plans to combat climate change. Within these plans, hydrogen often plays a critical role, and the source of this hydrogen energy has come under increasing interest and scrutiny. The challenge is, the vast majority of hydrogen is manufactured from fossil-fuel sources, and a simple colour association is being used in the absence of a standard for distinguishing the carbon intensity of hydrogen..."

Noise Pollution Affects Practically Everything, Even Seagrass Hakai Magazine

"...“This totally shifted our vision and our approach to noise pollution,” says André, because until that point, researchers had focused on concerns for whales and dolphins, which use sound to mate, find food, communicate, and navigate. But thousands of marine animals, from corals to jellyfish, possess statocysts, opening up the possibility that human-generated sounds could be having much farther-reaching effects. While seagrasses don’t have statocysts, they do have a very similar sensory organ called an amyloplast..."

Scientists come up with new method for simultaneous processing of different types of waste

"...An international research team has come up with an innovative method for metal recovery from industrial waste. The new method allows the simultaneous recovery of multiple metals from waste oxides in a single process. This novel route will lower the burden on waste storage facilities with significant contributions to the economic and environmental sustainability of industrial waste management..."

LETTER: Forestry practices not all bad

"...First of all, I would like to state that no one needs to visit all encampments to visualize the damage they can do to any environment. Equally, no one needs to see all sites of logging to imagine that landscape. I don’t dispute the environmental impact that current practices have on our ecosystems..."

Opinion: Reducing beef consumption might not be environmental solution some think

"...You have heard it on the news, seen it in the headlines and clicked it on social media: We should reduce meat consumption to decrease our individual carbon footprint and protect the environment. Recently, restaurants and food websites have removed beef from their menus and recipes in claims of doing their part to become more climate-conscious. Could it be possible that in some parts of the world, raising beef cattle actually preserves endangered ecosystems, provides valuable wildlife habitat and promotes carbon sequestration? In Canada, these are the environmental benefits from the land cared for by beef farmers and ranchers and their livestock..."
