A Facebook first: Tech giant invests directly in a renewable energy project

Facebook has committed to reaching 100 percent renewables by 2020, and now it's investing in a solar project. But research from Sally Benson notes that doesn't necessarily equate to clean energy around the clock.

Is climate change fueling tornadoes?

Research led by Stanford Earth's Noah Diffenbaugh projects that some of the environments conducive to severe weather will occur more often, but it's unclear if that means more tornadoes.

The difference between '100% renewable' and '100% carbon-free'

Most companies haven’t fully explored the real emissions impact of their shift to renewables, says Stanford Earth professor Sally Benson. Navigate to The difference between '100% renewable' and '100% carbon-free'

The threat methane poses in the battle to reverse climate change

"If pollution were drops of blood, it's a lot easier to blot them from your fingertips than to clean them from a rug," says Stanford Earth's Rob Jackson in an interview about his research on converting methane to carbon dioxide.

UN touts family farms as key to sustainable future

“Many of the people growing the food in this world right now are family farmers, and I think sometimes we forget that,” says Stanford Earth lecturer Liz Carlisle. Navigate to UN touts family farms as key to sustainable future

Extreme weather driven by climate change across U.S.

Global warming has already increased the odds of record hot and wet events happening in 75 percent of North America, says Stanford Earth professor Noah Diffenbaugh. Navigate to Extreme weather driven by climate change across U.S.

Bay Area firm plans to track carbon emissions from power plants worldwide

Satellite technology will soon allow for close monitoring of carbon emissions and even methane from power plants, though it’s not quite there yet, says Rob Jackson. Navigate to Bay Area firm plans to track carbon emissions from power plants worldwide

Attacking global warming by adding CO2 to the atmosphere?

"We need to cut emissions, but they are rising for both carbon dioxide and methane. We need to explore other ways to remove greenhouse gases after they’re in the atmosphere," says Rob Jackson.

Scientists want to limit climate change by releasing more CO2

Stanford scientists argue that we can limit warming by chemically converting methane to carbon dioxide. “Our paper is a call to view methane removal as an opportunity,” says lead author Rob Jackson. Navigate to Scientists want to limit climate change by releasing more CO2

New methane capture method could reduce global warming by one-sixth

New Stanford research proposes a method for atmospheric capture of methane to alleviate warming and buy more time to tackle the bigger CO2 problem.

The challenge of lowering greenhouse gas emissions on farms

“Methane emissions are a big deal. About a sixth of the warming that we’ve had since the start of the Industrial Revolution has been caused by methane,” says Rob Jackson.
