These machines scrub greenhouse gases from the air – an inventor of direct air capture technology shows how it works
One 'mechanical tree' is about 1,000 times faster at removing carbon dioxide from air than a natural tree. The first is to start operating in Arizona in 2022. Illustration via Arizona State UniversityTwo centuries of burning fossil fuels has put more carbon dioxide, a powerful greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere than nature can remove. As that CO2 builds up, it traps excess heat near Earth’s surface, causing global warming. There is so much CO2 in the atmosphere now that most scenarios show endi

Stephanie MazeIn my eyes, Hawaiians are the best fishermen in the world. The ingenuity, pride, and cultural connection to the land and sea have always set the standard for me on a balanced life, well-lived. Hawaii is not an easy place to fish.

The sea conditions can be demoralizing; don’t believe the brochures,

Portland-based PacifiCorp, a Berkshire Hathaway company, will retain the 55% portion it has held during the permitting phase of the long-sought project.
