Ever dream of charging your phone in a more eco-friendly way? Now, that dream becomes a reality through Bioo Lite, a new technology that lets you charge your smartphone through photosynthesis from any common house plant.
Food chains are a common sight not just in the United States, but all over the world. But with their increasing number and influence, what impact and programs do they have to play a big positive role in the environment?
U.S. President Barack Obama and Argentinian President Mauricio Mari recently agreed to work together to fight climate change, according to a Reuters report.
Virgin births, scientifically called parthenogenesis, may be more common among snakes than previously thought. Understanding this sort of reproduction sheds light on the evolutionary history of vertebrates, researchers say.
Using nano-sized particles of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, researchers have found a way to increase the growth and antioxidant content of tomato plants. This may soften the impact population growth has on natural resources in the future.
Researchers have developed a genetically enhanced virus that could boost the light-harvesting capabilities of solar cells.
Forests are often depended upon to capture and store carbon emissions. However, a new study shows that current models drastically overestimate their ability to capture carbon.
Following a recent study that showed high methane output from oil and gas development, the EPA has proposed new regulations to reduce methane emissions from the industry by 2025.
Galaxies are often found in clusters, which contain what are called "red and dead" members that stopped forming stars in the distant past. Now new research has discovered that giant cosmic tsunamis can bring these dead galaxies back to life.
A potentially game-changing breakthrough in artificial photosynthesis may be able to solve the world's carbon emission problem, according to new research.
Scientists are helping to reveal the secret to cheaper, super-efficient solar power by studying a family of crystalline materials called hybrid perovskites.
Scientists have developed a new energy device that harnesses carbon dioxide in such a way that it could power life on Mars, according to a new study.
Scientists have discovered the first direct evidence that rising carbon dioxide (CO2) levels are heating up the Earth, increasing the harmful greenhouse gas effect and exacerbating climate change, new research finds.
In a new unique study, scientists have successfully created solar cells using the shells of shrimps and other crustaceans of all things, possibly leading to a sustainable form of renewable energy.
