Post-doctoral scientist Neil Williams and his team discover an entirely new chemical mechanism for CO2 sequestration using household humidifiers and hotdog cookers.
The University of Michigan is investing millions to create technologies that capture carbon dioxide and turn it into products, though experts say some may not help reduce greenhouse gas permanently. Roxanne Liu and Minghe Hu report.
Tilling loosens soil to enable roots to sprout more easily, however it also exposes pockets of 'uneaten' carbon to hungry microbes. (Allan Murray-Rust/Wikimedia)

From breaking down escaping methane from melting ice caps to storing carbon in non-tilled soils, microbes are already mitigating climate change.

Ferns for Feed is a company which installs patent-pending aquaculture systems which have the ability to rapidly sequester carbon. By utilizing the aquatic fern azolla, aquaculture systems become more self sufficient as azolla is capable of purifying... Read More

The carbon cycle is key to understanding climate change, but most people don't even know what it is. Take a look at our infographic to learn how carbon affects our world on a macro scale.
Was that fuel created out of thin air? This week on Bloomberg West, we featured a company that says they've developed a way to take carbon in the air and turn it into fuel for cars!
Check out this new technology that has the potential to save our environment and solve our energy problems. An artificial leaf removes excess carbon from the air, and researchers can then use that carbon to make gasoline.
The same chemicals we use in shampoo and conditioner could capture CO2 from power plant smokestacks and help limit climate change.
