Global sea levels will rise past 1.8°C planetary warming

A study published in Nature Communications by an international team of scientists shows that an irreversible loss of the West Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets, and a corresponding rapid acceleration...

A large, solid mass of elemental carbon or graphite with the super, greasy/waxy feel and typical, sheet-like form. This splendent, steel-gray specimen is from a very uncommon New Hampshire locality - the old Beneis Farm, Marlborough, Cheshire County. Ex. Bob Whitmore Collection, a noted New England collector and field collector.

Podcast Episode 57 I How is graphite in electric vehicle batteries contributing to climate change?

Graphite is a battery material and we don’t even know how much carbon it emits. It is used in the anode side of electric vehicle batteries and is made in extremely hot furnaces using a huge amount of ...

Graphite is a battery material and we don’t even know how much carbon it emits

Graphite is a battery material and we don't even know how much carbon it emits. It is used in the anode side of electric vehicle batteries and its carbon impacts have been grossly underestimated.
