Cool roofs in not-so-cool China equal energy, emissions savings

By Jessica McMathis / September 29, 2014

Scientists from the Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory have previously established that cool roofs are the most cost-effective option for your pocketbook. Now, a group from the lab, working with Chinese researchers, has shown that the use of light-colored roofs in China would “substantially” reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in regions where summer temps soar.

“Chalk piles” to cut CO2

By / November 12, 2010

A recent piece in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences discusses geoengineering as a way to manipulate Earth’s climate in order to counteract global warming from greenhouse gas emissions. Using a method described as “enhanced weathering,” researchers claim that piles of chalk could be used to stabilize the climate. The chalk piles could,…
