  • Climate change mitigation: Turning carbon dioxide into rock

      An international team of scientists have found a potentially viable way to remove anthropogenic (caused or influenced by humans) carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere -- turn it int...
  • Northern invaders threaten Antarctic marine life

      An international study led by The Australian National University (ANU) has found evidence that marine life can easily invade Antarctic waters from the north, and could be poised to colonis...
