As our climate continues to change and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions keep climbing, scientists and world leaders alike fear that the chances of limiting global warming to 2 degrees Celsius is dwindling fast. Now, climate officials have announced that it's highly unlikely we'll meet that goal due to the concentration of greenhouse gases.
Inspired by sticky proteins naturally secreted by shellfish, MIT engineers have created stronger waterproof glue that could be used to repair ships and even help heal wounds and surgical incisions, according to a new study.
