Experts Describe the Nitrogen Dilemma
University of Colorado’s Philip Taylor describes how nitrates accumulate in water bodies. The findings represent a new framework to understand the fate of nitrate in ecosystems worldwide, which could help management strategies targeting nitrogen pollution.
Princeton researcher Tim Searchinger points out a huge error in existing biofuel laws that could actually make climate change worse: these rules inadvertently encourage deforestation, which in turn contributes to global warming.
Arizona State University scientist Jim Elser explains how nitrogen pollution in Colorado’s alpine lakes is creating “junk food for fish,” disrupting the food chain.
