    New devices could help turn atmospheric CO2 into useful supplies

    New chemical-recycling devices might help combat climate change by making good use of heat-trapping gas produced by burning fossil fuels.

    These electrochemical cells convert carbon monoxide into useful compounds much more efficiently than their predecessors, researchers report online October 25 in Joule. If combined with existing technology that harvests carbon monoxide from carbon...

    Volcanic rocks help turn carbon emissions to stone — and fast

    A new technique turns climate-warming carbon emissions to stone. In a test program in Iceland, more than 95 percent of the carbon dioxide injected into basaltic lava rocks mineralized into solid rock within two years. This surprisingly fast transformation quarantined the CO2 from the atmosphere and could ultimately help offset society’s greenhouse gas emissions, scientists report in the June...

    Science News of the Year 2002

    A year of twists and turns

    What the world needs, say some people, is more one-handed scientists. That way, reports would have fewer sentences starting, "On the other hand. . . ."

    Actually, scientists need all the hands they can muster. Most of the phenomena they...
