Newswise: Turning climate change from a 'tragedy of the commons' to positive action

Article ID: 704970

Turning climate change from a 'tragedy of the commons' to positive action

University of Exeter

Climate change must no longer be viewed as a "tragedy of the commons", researchers say. December marks the 50th anniversary of the paper that popularized the concept of tragedy of the commons: it argued that individuals will always take advantage of a common resource and so degrade it. A new paper argues that the theory limits the way climate change is viewed.

NEI awards prize for progress toward developing lab-made retinas

NIH, National Eye Institute (NEI)

The National Eye Institute (NEI) awarded $25,000 to a team led by Wei Liu, Ph.D., Albert Einstein College of Medicine, for demonstrating progress toward the development of a living model of the human retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. The prize money was awarded for the first of two phases of the NEI 3-D Retina Organoid Challenge 2020 (3-D ROC 2020), a national initiative to generate human retina organoids from stem cells. NEI is part of the National Institutes of Health.

Newswise: Natural Habitats Larger Than Greece Created to Offset Economic Developments

Article ID: 704488

Natural Habitats Larger Than Greece Created to Offset Economic Developments

University of Kent

New data has found that natural habitats occupying an area larger than Greece have been created to offset economic developments. This data could eventually provide a basis to help improve our understanding of the benefits of protecting and preserving wildlife. Called 'biodiversity offsets', man-made conservation areas are created to compensate for economic developments and are a growing trend.

How to Convert Climate-Changing Carbon Dioxide into Plastics and Other Products

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Rutgers scientists have developed catalysts that can convert carbon dioxide – the main cause of global warming – into plastics, fabrics, resins and other products. The electrocatalysts are the first materials, aside from enzymes, that can turn carbon dioxide and water into carbon building blocks containing one, two, three or four carbon atoms with more than 99 percent efficiency.
