New Study Revealed that the Earth’s Temperatures will Continue to Rise Despite a Global Reduction in Greenhouse Gas Emissions.

The research, published in the journal Nature Communications, shows that the carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted by human activities stays in the atmosphere for hundreds of years. 
The carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are rising with the global temperature, according to NBC News.
Carbon dioxide remains in the atmosphere for centuries and accumulates over time. The reduction of greenhouse gases is a good start, but it may not be enough to reverse global warming.

NASA Model Predicts Pollution Drop Following COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to significant changes in human behavior, including the widespread cancellation of significant events, school closures, and teleworking. 
Those changes have also led to a dramatic drop in emissions of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) – a pollutant that can cause respiratory problems – over some of the most populated regions of the Northern Hemisphere, according to a new NASA study based on satellite observations.

How EVs are Becoming Integrated into City Infrastructure

As the market for electric vehicles (EVs) continues to grow, cities are working to keep up with the demand for more charging stations. More than 30 cities in the US currently have over 250 EVs on the road, and there are over 28,000 chargers in public locations nationwide.
Adopting electric transport is one way that cities can address some issues. It helps reduce carbon emissions, which contribute to global warming, and …

The State of New Jersey Finalizes a Cleanup Plan to Address Groundwater Contamination

EPA, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), and PPG Industries (PPG) finalized a cleanup plan to address groundwater that is contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) resulting from PPG’s former manufacturing operations at its site in Pompton Lakes, New Jersey.
The groundwater at the site contains a non-degradable solvent called trichloroethylene, a chemical that can cause serious health effects if consumed or inhaled in high doses over long periods of time.
The cleanup plan for…

3 Ways Food Processors Can Cut Down on Water Use
