No More Global Warming: Historic Climate Deal Signed

globe-907709_960_720

Almost 200 countries have signed a historic deal together in Rwanda to effectively phase out the use of HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons used in refrigerators and air-conditioners). HFCs are particularly dangerous to the environment because they can trap thousands of times more heat than CO2. With this step we can now easily prevent a rise of about 0.5 degrees Celsius in global temperatures and get much closer to our target of ending global warming.

Strange Unearthly Minerals Discovered in Siberia Could Help Reverse Global Warming

siberianIt has just been reported that minerals so far only thought possible to be grown in labs have in-fact naturally existed in a Siberian mine. Stepanovite and Zhemchuzhnikovite were first discovered deep inside a Siberian coal mine nearly 70 years ago, but their molecular structure had so far not been examined. It is now found that these two belong to a class of porous solids known as ‘metal-organic frameworks’ (MOFs) unlike anything found naturally on earth. They work like molecular sponges soaking up gases such as CO2 making them useful from the ecological perspective.
