Researchers examine carbon capture and storage to combat global warming
...is that leakage would lead to more global warming, defeating
the purpose of storage in the first place. ''People think, it would have been sort of sad going through all this trouble,'' said Tony Kovscek, associate professor of energy resources engineering and a researcher on a GCEP project on carbon sequest...
Jefferson scientists find rabies-based vaccine could be effective against HIV
..., a relentless, ancient scourge, may hold a key to defeating
another implacable foe: HIV. Scientists at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia have used a drastically weakened rabies virus to ferry HIV-related proteins into animals, in essence, vaccinating them against an AIDS-like disease. The early eviden...
Evolution and the workaround
...round lethal stresses suggests that drugs aimed at defeating
this process might be particularly effective against pathogens and cancers adept at rapid drug resistance, the researchers say. To stay alive, you have to be both sturdy and flexible. The Stowers researchers look to these evolved yeast strains f...
Asleep in the deep: Model helps assess ocean-injection strategy for combating greenhouse effect
... turn into gas bubbles and vent to the atmosphere, defeating
the purpose of the whole grand scheme. Even worse, if the liquid-to-gas conversion happens suddenly, the gas can bubble up in a plume and erupt---a potential hazard. Small-scale ocean experiments have been done to investigate how the carbon dioxide...
