Our team of science writers pore through stacks of the latest climate and sustainability science and bring you a hand-picked selection of the most compelling research from around the world, a compendium found nowhere else.
Climate change has ravaged coral reefs on a massive scale. This breakthrough could revolutionize efforts to rebuild them.
Laundry detergents were among the most toxic tested
Novel technology enables the super fast growth of "enriched seaweed" infused with nutrients, proteins, dietary fiber, and minerals.
Looking for a lithium alternative, researchers combined chitin and zinc to create a low-cost, long-lived battery with a smaller environmental footprint.
New study is the first to analyze how a large-scale transition to timber cities could ease the strain on carbon budgets without compromising food production and biodiversity
New breeds of poplar trees could produce enough fiber to replace a large share of cotton farming in Europe — freeing up that land for other uses.
Engineers devise a resin to recycle wind turbine blades into countertops, diapers, and even gummy bears
The world will produce over 40 million tonnes of turbine blade waste by 2050. A new resin makes it easier to turn them into valuable products.
In one of the last remnants of tallgrass prairie, scientists found that native species richness nearly doubled on land grazed by bison.
A new analysis suggests that climate activists should put pressure not just on fossil fuel companies—but also on their owners.
