Sugar ants love pee, and it might reduce greenhouse gas emissions

Pee-loving ants that chomp down on urea could help prevent nitrous oxide release into the atmosphere. An interesting new way to look at Carbon Capture for year 10 Earth and Space Sciences, as well as relevant to the year 6, … Continued

If we want to control greenhouse gases then we need to think ‘blue carbon’

Blue carbon ecosystems like seagrass and mangroves are a heavyweight in capturing carbon, but we’re losing them quickly. This interesting article explains carbon capture in action to students in year 10 studying Earth and Space Sciences or Senior Secondary Earth … Continued
