3 Benefits of Using Smart Mooring In Monitoring Climate Change
One of the parts most damaged by the current rate of climate change is Earth’s bodies of water. Scientific forecasts have estimated that in the next century, almost all coral reef habitats on our planet will be decimated. This is largely due to continuing ocean acidification among other practices done by humans, which all drastically …

Ocean Acidification: Mapping the Impact of Carbon Emissions on the Oceans
The climate crisis and the chemistry of the oceans are inextricably connected. The oceans have absorbed close to a third of our carbon dioxide emissions since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, leading to an increasingly acidic environment (hence the term, Ocean Acidification) and making it more difficult for organisms such as corals, mollusks, and …

Could negative emissions actually help curb global warming?
Many future climate scenarios suggest that negative emissions will be needed to limit global warming. Researchers are now investigating how feasible this is. By Sandrine Ceurstemont
The Environmental Impact of Electric Cars
As more companies develop electric vehicles (EVs), controversy has grown over whether they are better for the environment than gas-run vehicles. Although some experts disagree, most have concluded that electric cars are better for the environment. Here’s the nitty-gritty of how electric cars really impact the environment.
