Since the dawn of Man, our whole planet feels the tremors of transformation. Every ecosystem has been impacted, every species bears the ever-growing footprint of humanity.
Thankfully, this year has seen scientists from all around the globe, from the northern Sweden to the ice caps of Antarctica, pooling their ideas to come up with new ways to help our environment: enzymes that eat plastic to clean up our oceans, genetics to save animals from extinction or using scrap metal to cut CO2 emissions… Green technologies are also blooming, to ensure a cleaner future.
British and Americans harness the photosynthetic powers of algae, Palestinians learn how to tame the waves as Dutch scientists try to master gravity to turn upside-down our way of producing energy. Even our cars, that pollute so much, could be the instrument of a greener Earth. Bio-composite vehicles, recyclable car parts or electric roads are but a few of the innovations that drive these researches.
