Identifying the right algae species for biofuel production can be like finding a needle in a haystack. Now, researchers at PNNL are leading a new project to develop a streamlined process to pare down numerous algae species to just a few – those that hold the most promise for biofuel production.

New Aviation Technologies Could Reduce Airline Pollution by 75 Percent and Slash Fuel Consumption in Half

According to The New York Times, for most people, “air travel is their most serious environmental sin”. A round-trip flight from New York to Europe or San Francisco, for example, creates a polluting effect “equivalent to 2 or 3 tons of carbon dioxide per person. The average American generates about 19 tons of carbon dioxide a year; the average European, 10.”

#sustainability #ecofriendly #travel #pollution 
As someone who lives to travel, I am heartened to learn these developments in aviation technology can dramatically reduce airline fuel consumption and pollution

Interesting. I wonder how long the sawdust particles are buoyant before they reach absorbent capacity and sink? We have experience with submerged wood waste sites here in Washington. This seems intriguing, but you certainly would not want the particles to create a secondary waste issue.

Here's a couple carbon clocks helping us to visualize climate change...could these clocks play a big role in helping us to do more than visualize but also to act quickly on solutions?
We humans here on earth are grappling with whether or not climate change is within our control, while the carbon clock is rapidly ticking away...
