Singapore First To Approve The Selling of Lab-Grown Chicken

The world’s pace of meat consumption is placing a significant strain on the environment. Many studies show that eating less meat is just as crucial to slowing down global warming as using solar panels and zero-emissions vehicles. Animal farming generates an obscene amount of greenhouse gas emissions. That’s why the demand for alternatives to animal […]

All Boing Planes Will Use 100% Sustainable Fuel By 2030

Boeing plans to have all its commercial airplanes flying on 100% biofuel by the end of the decade. To do so will require raising fuel-blending requirements, developing advances to the jet system, and getting safety certification by global regulators. Nevertheless, it’s committed to reducing the environmental damage caused by fossil fuels. Boeing’s director of sustainability […]

The Best Way to Restore Forests Is To Let The Trees Plant Themselves

Ecosystems have been growing themselves for hundreds of millions of years, and forests that plant themselves are better and most diverse. That’s why a group of environmental advocates in the UK from a charity called Rewilding Britain say we should let nature do its thing instead of manually mass-planting trees. Natural dispersal of seeds boosts […]

Scientists Figured Out How To Revert CO2 Into Jet Fuel

The aviation industry’s carbon footprint currently makes up 12% of all transportation-related CO2 emissions. Airplanes need to use a lot of fuel to fly, which is why they pump out a ton of climate-warming carbon dioxide into the sky. It’s a hard problem to solve because most planes can’t carry batteries big enough to run […]
