  • Including CO2 emissions from land use in mitigation policy

    A comprehensive tax on carbon emissions would lower the cost of meeting environmental goals whilst discouraging deforestation, according to a recent study. There is concern that climate change mitigation strategies may not always consider emissions from land use or their interaction with emissions from industrial and fossil fuel sources. For example, focusing on industrial and fossil fuel ...

  • NREL Finds a New Cellulose Digestion Mechanism by a Fast-eating Enzyme
