Who pays the cost of phasing out coal?
Who pays the cost of phasing out coal?
The pricing of carbon dioxide (CO2), which is now being hotly debated as an accompanying measure to phasing out coal and also as part of the climate protection law being planned, is ecologically and economically efficient and so makes sense.

Living bridges
Living bridges
Dense, humid broadleaf forests, monsoon-swollen rivers and deep ravines - in the Indian state of Meghalaya wooden bridges easily decay or are washed away in floodwaters. Bridges made from steel and concrete are pushed to their limits here as well. But bridges made of living tree roots can survive here for centuries.

University of Stuttgart names new tardigrade species
University of Stuttgart names new tardigrade species
A new tardigrade species was discovered by Dr. Ralph Schill from the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomolecular Systems (IBBS) at the University of Stuttgart. The species is now known as Milnesium inceptum, derived from the Latin term for pioneer or initiator. At the same time, Schill, together with colleagues from England, Poland and Japan, classified another tardigrade species as a neotype: Milnesium alpigenum, which had already been described in the middle of the 19th century but was no longer present as a preserved specimen.

Plants Emit Greenhouse Gas Nitrous Oxide at Substantial Amounts
Current study shows: Impact on natural climate processes greater than previously thought Nitrous oxide, or N2O, is a greenhouse gas that affects the ozone layer and the earth's climate. Until now, experts believed that microbes in the soil were largely responsible for its formation. Now an interdisciplinary research team from the University of Applied Sciences Bingen and Heidelberg University have looked more closely at plants as the source.
