  1. Your used coffee grounds could do a lot of goodRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday | Fox News

    As if coffee isn't amazing enough already. A team of researchers-who, yes, got the idea over a cup of coffee-are reporting in the journal Nanotechnology that soaking spent coffee grounds in potassium hydroxide and then heating the grounds in a furnace creates a material that can store up to 7% of its weight in methane, a greenhouse gas that Popular Science calls both "incredibly potent" and "much stronger than carbon dioxide."

  2. Waste coffee used as fuel storageRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Sep 2 | Science Blog

    Scientists have developed a simple process to treat waste coffee grounds to allow them to store methane. The simple soak and heating process develops a carbon capture material with the additional environmental benefits of recycling a waste product.

  3. Coffee grounds capture carbonRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Sep 2 | Nanotechweb.org

    Methane capture and storage allows double environmental returns, since it removes a harmful greenhouse gas from the atmosphere and it can then be used as a fuel that is cleaner than other fossil fuels. Materials that can absorb methane are attracting a great deal of interest because of the inherent danger of storage in gas cylinders.

  4. Climate Change Viewed From Alaska [Greg Laden's Blog]Read the original story

    Tuesday Sep 1 | ScienceBlogs

    Alaska is being called the poster child for climate change because things have been so strange there lately. One reason for this is the extreme warm conditions in the North Pacific and associated changes in the jet stream, as well as overall warming, which has caused coastal Alaska to become a warm place, glaciers to melt, and sea ice to be less.

    Tuesday Sep 1 | Daily Kos

    "When it comes to the global climate, what happens in the Arctic does not stay in the Arctic. The latest proof comes in new research connecting the unusually brutal winter of 2014-15 along the East Coast of North America to rapidly vanishing summer sea ice on the western side of the Arctic Ocean."

  6. Warm Arctic Brews Severe Winters From U.S. to Asia, Study SaysRead the original story

    Monday Aug 31 | The Washington Post

    Here's a climate twist: If your winter has been brutally cold in Tokyo or Toledo in recent years, you can thank global warming in the Arctic, a new study suggests. Rising temperatures in the waters north of Russia and Alaska are changing atmospheric circulation patterns and may play a "central role" in record-breaking winters that have hit East Asia and North America, researchers from South Korea and the U.K. wrote in a study published Monday in the journal Nature Geoscience.

  11. Black Phosphorus: The New And Improved GrapheneRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Aug 20 | Inventor Spot

    The fatal flaw inherent in graphene electronics has already been heavily discussed - graphene-based transistors lack an OFF state making them ineffective switches despite a myriad of other properties that seem so full of potential. Now scientists report a new two dimensional material that avoids this pitfall while maintaining many of graphene's remarkable abilities.
