ORNL researchers discuss breakthroughs in biomass conversion, feedstocks, logistics and sustainability https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IJqRImGYAk.

The National Climate Assessment (NCA) was released on May 6 (see http://nca2014.globalchange.gov/). “The Global Change Research Act of 1990 requires a NCA assessment report at least every four years. Its production is led by the 13 Federal agencies that make up the U.S. Global Change Research Program, and is written by experts drawn from academia; local, state, and Federal government; and the private and nonprofit sectors. Contributions to the report were made from ORNL by Tom Wilbanks, Ben Preston, Steve Fernandez, Laurence Eaton, and Virginia Dale. The NCA found that, not only is global climate changing, but that the major source of change over the past 50 years has been burning of fossil fuels. The report  points out recent trends in climate change and increased extreme disturbances and calls for reduced use of fossil fuels that continue to atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases. The Forest chapter points out the bioenergy could emerge as a new market for wood that could aid in the restoration of forests killed by drought insects and fire.

Rebecca Efroymson will receive the Holroyd Award, a science alumni award from La Salle University on April 29th.
