Sustainability Award at the BUS2BUS exhibition. Solaris, Iveco and many more awarded

"...Of course, the Crossway and Crossway Low Entry Natural Power buses also help to save natural resources, as they are 100% compatible with biomethane, produced from organic waste. The vehicles thus have an excellent carbon balance and make a concrete contribution to the energy transition in local public transport. The environmental benefit is a reduction in greenhouse gas production of up to 95%..."

North Island-Powell River MP introduces bill to combat food waste

"...“This bill is an opportunity to examine our food system, stop the overproduction of unhealthy foods flooding the market, and ensure that excess healthy fresh food is available for all,” said Maurita Prato, Lush Valley executive director. “This examination of food waste in our food system will decrease methane production, support food security and move our food system towards a more sustainable future. ”..."

Ocean bacteria release carbon into the atmosphere

"...The researchers began studying sulfur-oxidizing bacteria--a group of microbes that use sulfur as an energy source--in methane seeps on the ocean floor. Akin to deep-sea coral reefs, these "seeps" contain collections of limestone that trap large amounts of carbon. The sulfur-oxidizing microbes live on top of these rocks..."

LETTER: People must change their actions to slow global warming, Langley student writes

"...This is increasing global temperature, warming up our earth and is resulting in climate change. Climate change is causing floods, droughts, storms, hurricanes, wildfires, and it's going to be a lot more frequent and intense. Glaciers have already begun to melt, just a few days ago, in India, a glacier melted unexpectedly which flooded the area, causing a lot of people to lose their lives..."

CO2 mitigation on Earth and magnesium civilization on Mars

"...Excessive CO2 emissions are a major cause of climate change, and hence reducing the CO2 levels in the Earth's atmosphere is key to limit adverse environmental effects. Rather than just capture and store CO2, it would be desirable to use it as carbon feedstock for fuel production to achieve the target of "net-zero-emissions energy systems". The capture and conversion of CO2 (from fuel gas or directly from the air) to methane and methanol simply using water as a hydrogen source under ambient conditions would provide an optimal solution to reduce excessive CO2 levels and would be highly sustainable..."

Better solutions for making hydrogen may lie just at the surface

"...A clean energy future propelled by hydrogen fuel depends on figuring out how to reliably and efficiently split water. That's because, even though hydrogen is abundant, it must be derived from another substance that contains it -- and today, that substance is often methane gas. Scientists are seeking ways to isolate this energy-carrying element without using fossil fuels..."

Lightning strikes will more than double in Arctic as climate warms

"...A lightning strike bump could open a Pandora's box of related troubles. Fires, Randerson explained, burn away short grasses, mosses, and shrubs that are important components of Arctic tundra ecosystems. Such plants cover much of the landscape, and one thing they do is keep the seeds of trees from taking root in the soil..."
