Solar and wind are still growing at a furious pace, but two influential reports suggest that without a massive policy response on issues including carbon capture and storage, the shift to clean energy will be too slow to avoid dangerous warming.

Comments Off on The business case for sustainability transcends politics

The 2016 U.S. Presidential election left a lot at stake for environmental policy and corporate social responsibility. But businesses have the power to push for the policies they need to ensure a sustainable future. “It’s important to tell lawmakers the business case you know so well,” said Anne Kelley, Ceres’ senior program director of policy and BICEP program. Businesses also have a responsibility to tell their success stories out loud over various forms of media, she said: “The money you’re saving, the emissions you’re bringing down, the materials you’re recycling.”

Trump signs executive order aimed at eliminating national monuments

Comments Off on Trump signs executive order aimed at eliminating national monuments

President Trump just signed an executive order that threatens millions of acres of public land. The order seeks to reduce or eliminate multiple national monuments across the US, potentially eliminating public access and water and land protection safeguards. It’s an unprecedented (unpresidented?) move that will likely be challenged in courts. The executive order wouldn’t eliminate the national monuments just yet, since the President doesn’t have the power to do that. Instead, it orders a review of any existing monuments (which Presidents have the power to create under the 1906 Antiquities Act ) designated in the past 21 years that are over 100,000 acres in size. The Department of the Interior will review monuments and determine which it recommends changing. Related: Patagonia launches campaign to protect Utah’s Bear Ears National Monument 21 years might seem like an arbitrary timeline, but the executive order is aimed directly at the newly-designated Bear’s Ears Monument and the Grand Staircase-Escalante Monument, designated by President Clinton 21 years ago. Republicans called the designations an over-reach of federal power and have been fighting to have the monuments eliminated ever since. Polls show that a vast majority of Americans support maintaining or adding more public and protected lands in the US rather than reducing them. The legal battle will likely begin after the Department of the Interior makes its determination. Via The Verge images via The Bureau of Land Management

Comments Off on Rare sea snakes, thought to be extinct, discovered in Western Australia

Two rare species of sea snakes , thought to have been extinct, have been sighted by scientists in Western Australia. Neither species, whose only known habitats were a pair of reefs in the Timor Sea, has been seen since 2002. “This discovery is really exciting. We get another chance to protect these two endemic Western Australian sea snake species,” says Blanche D’Anastasi, lead author of the report about the find.

At Facebook, the idea that energy efficiency is profitable is old news. But social networks have the power to move companies and individuals alike that are slower to adopt efficiency as a goal toward much greater achievements.

Comments Off on 4 Ways to Flip the Switch on the Climate Change Debate

Conservatives in the current Congress are pushing hard against environmental laws — and the fact that they’re gaining ground is a testament as much to hard-liners in one party as it is to a failure to send compelling messages on climate change.

Plant Enzyme Converts Car Exhaust Into Fuel

Comments Off on Plant Enzyme Converts Car Exhaust Into Fuel

Scientists have discovered a plant enzyme capable of turning carbon monoxide into propane, which lets us imagine a future where cars could run off their own exhaust. The microbe Azotobacter vinelandii, found in the roots of many food plants including soy beans, creates the enzyme vanadium nitrogase, which produces ammonia from nitrogen found in the soil.  Scientists fed the enzyme carbon monoxide instead of nitrogen and found that it created short carbon chains, two or three atoms long — essentially propane. The scientists think that the enzyme could be modified to produce even longer chains until it ultimately produces gasoline.  If perfected, cars could run partially off of their exhaust or carbon monoxide in the air around them, reducing pollution and cutting down on the oil we use
