A carbon sink may be located beneath the world's deserts. Scientists have found that massive aquifers underneath deserts could hold more carbon than all of the plants on land.
Washington D.C. may be sinking-and fast. Scientists have found that the land under Chesapeake Bay is sinking rapidly and that Washington D.C. could drop by six or more inches in the next century, which could compound flooding issues.
A genetically modified strain of rice may be good for the environment. Scientists have developed a new GMO that produces far less methane than traditional rice, which could help curb the amount of greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere.
What can you learn from a single hair? You can learn quite a bit with a new technique. Scientists have discovered a way to determine exactly what a grizzly bear has been eating over several months just by looking at a single hair.
