Moving artificial leaves out of the lab and into the air  

Researchers have proposed a design solution that could bring artificial leaves out of the lab and into the environment. Their improved leaf, which would use carbon dioxide — a potent greenhouse gas — from the air, would be at least 10 times more efficient than natural leaves at converting carbon dioxide to fuel.

“Weather Terrorism:” a National Emergency

All that is missing is the demand that the president declare a national emergency (as authorized under the National Emergencies Act of 1976) that explicates the gravity of the situation and proposes the full marshaling of the country’s resources (while we still have them at our command) to bear upon this civilizational crisis. Fat Chance.

Global carbon dioxide emissions rise even as coal wanes and renewables boom: Fossil fuel emissions have climbed for a second straight year, driven by growing energy use — ScienceDaily

Renewable energy capacity has hit record levels and global coal use may have already peaked. But the world’s carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels increased in 2018, and the trend places global warming targets in jeopardy.
