Improving crop productivity and limiting carbon emissions through economic incentives could halt tropical deforestation over the next 100 years, according to a study from the University of New Hampshire and the Joint Global Change Research Institute, a partnership between Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the University of Maryland.
Experiments performed at DOE's Oak Ridge National Laboratory are yielding surprising properties in extremely short-lived isotopes near tin-100's "doubly magic" nucleus.
The DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory is helping islands around the world craft polices and infrastructure for a future fueled by the sun, wind, waves, seaweed, and lava. It’s an initiative of the international Energy Development in Island Nations project.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is one of the major greenhouse gases responsible for global warming. Consequently, it is critical that CO2 emission into the earth’s atmosphere be controlled. To control CO2 emissions from power plants, a two-step process called carbon sequestration has been envisioned by DOE and the utility industry.
