Plants bred or engineered to be short can stand up better to windstorms. They could also boost yields and benefit the environment.
Getting to zero carbon emissions won’t save the world. We’ll have to also remove carbon from the air—a massive undertaking unlike anything we’ve ever done.
A half-trillion dollars is starting to work its way through the US economy, remaking climate technology along the way.
The program would use cameras, computer vision, and machine learning to track the carbon stored in the biomass of the oceans.
A Costa Rican flower has turned this foe into friend, according to a new study. One species of the so-called arum plant has evolved to attract a species of plant bug instead of a typical beetle pollinator, helping them spread their pollen far and wide.

According to new modeling, 1,100 tons of microplastic – particles smaller than 5 millimeters – is currently floating above the western US. Slowly, researchers are developing a clearer picture of how these particles are cycling all over the planet.
Mosquito eggs places in the Florida Keys are expected to hatch thousands of genetically modified mosquitoes. The federally approved experiment studies the use of genetic engineering – rather than insecticides – to control disease-carrying mosquito populations.
