Scientists Find a New Source of a Greenhouse Gas Emissions in The Siberian Permafrost
A major part of tackling the climate crisis is in understanding what's happening in Earth's atmosphere in terms of heating, cooling, and the factors playing into that. Now scientists have discovered a massive new source of nitrous oxide (N2O), one of the greenhouse gases causing our planet to warm up.
The VTB Capital” analysts assessed the cost of the climatic plan for the salvation of Russia and the carbon-neutral transition of the national economy. The authors calculated several scenarios and degrees of achieving carbon neutrality (refusing hazardous emissions and their compensation) by 2060. It was President Vladimir Putin, who put such a purpose earlier on.
Politician suggests bombing erupting La Palma volcano to stop lava flow
The volcano has been erupting for 42 days, and shows no signs of stopping.
Bombing the sizzling lava flows of La Palma's still-erupting volcano may be the only way to prevent the destruction the molten rivers are causing, a Spanish politician has suggested. Bombing runs could be used, according to its advocate, to redirect the deadly lava from flowing into populated areas.

New research into metal-rich asteroids reveals information about the origins and compositions of these rare bodies that could one day be mined.
Metal-rich near-Earth asteroids, or NEAs, are rare, but their presence provides the intriguing possibility that iron, nickel and cobalt could someday be mined for use on Earth or in Space.
New research, published in the Planetary Science Journal, investigated two metal-rich asteroids in our own cosmic backyard to learn more about their origins, compositions and relationships with meteorites found on Earth.
An international team of climatologists, anthropologists, paleontologists, and ecologists has stated that if the average temperature doesn’t stop rising until the year 2500, the Earth may become unfit for human life. In their work, they considered three possible scenarios, in the worst of which the regions that have long been centers of culture and species development will become barren.
They also presented illustrations that show how life will change under different scenarios in three regions: the Amazon, India, and the Midwest.
The Government of the Russian Federation approved the concept of the development of hydrogen energy in Russia, which assumes the esablishmet of a high-tech export-oriented industry with an export volume of up to 50 million tons of hydrogen by 2050 (Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No.
Corporate Bosses Called Out for Making Hollow Climate Pledges. The vast majority of companies in the world’s major economies are failing to make climate pledges that can be measured against meaningful yardsticks, according to the Science Based Targets initiative. The upshot of the group’s research is that, despite reams of corporate announcements professing to value sustainability, most business leaders aren’t walking the talk.
The countries most vulnerable to climate change are calling for an "emergency pact" to tackle rising temperatures. The group wants all countries to agree radical steps to avoid "climate catastrophe" at the upcoming COP26 meeting in Glasgow. Green campaigners are urging a postponement of the gathering, citing problems with vaccines for delegates. The Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) says the event is critical and cannot wait.
