Britain's strategy to meet climate change targets not sufficient, say lawmakers 16.5.2018 DNA: Money
The British government's Clean Growth Strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will not be enough to meet legally binding climate change targets, a committee of cross-party lawmakers said on Wednesday. The strategy, launched last year, outlines investment in research and innovation to help reduce emissions which lead to global warming. Britain has committed to cut emissions by 80 percent by 2050 compared to 1990 levels and must produce proposals on how to reach its climate targets as part of carbon budgets set every five years. Although the amount of electricity generated from low-carbon energy doubled to a record 50 percent last year from 2009, there are signs that investment might have stalled in the past two years, the Environmental Audit Committee said in a report. Annual clean energy investment in Britain is now at its lowest level since 2008, threatening the country's ability to meet its carbon budgets from 2023. The report also said that changes to low-carbon energy policies in 2015 has ...

Sea slugs can shed light for perpetual green energy 5.5.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Sea slugs, majorly known as the leaves that crawl, can create perpetual green energy. According to a study by Rutgers University, sea slug sucks raw materials from algae to provide its lifetime supply of solar-powered energy in the Northeast. Sea slug is a marine invertebrate with varying levels of resemblance to terrestrial slugs. "It's a remarkable feat because it's highly unusual for an animal to behave like a plant and survive solely on photosynthesis," said Debashish Bhattacharya, senior author of the study. "The broader implication is in the field of artificial photosynthesis. That is, if we can figure out how the slug maintains stolen, isolated plastids to fix carbon without the plant nucleus, then maybe we can also harness isolated plastids for eternity as green machines to create bioproducts or energy. The existing paradigm is that to make green energy, we need the plant or alga to run the photosynthetic organelle, but the slug shows us that this does not have to be the case," he added. This ...
