Since the mid-nineteenth century, we have been aware that greenhouse gases affect the Earth’s climate. In 1856, an American woman, Eunice Foote, wrote that changing amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere could change the climate. Therefore, this concept is nothing new. Yet, we continue to emit more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere every day. What is a greenhouse [...]

Every year, Britons throw away around 270,000 tonnes of food during the Christmas season. But we can use those leftover mince pies, roast vegetables and turkeys to generate a renewable form of energy: biogas. The Christmas season alone could be used to generate up to 300 gigawatt-hours. That is enough to heat 25,000 homes. It would also cut carbon dioxide [...]
