Just last year, the Earth exceeded "pre-industrial" temperatures, which meant that the planet is 1.5 degrees Celsius hotter than before the Industrial Revolution. This shows that after more than 200 years, Earth has crossed normal temperature levels, and scientists are worried that this increase might continue in the future.
There is now a new research that proposes a revolutionary method to scrub carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to combat global warming. Cornell researchers proposed utilizing a "bioenergy-biochar system" that could eliminate carbon dioxide from the atmosphere until other removal methods become economically accessible. This groundbreaking research appeared in the Oct. 21 edition of Nature Communications.
