Offbeat Biotech Startup wants to revive Wollmammut to rescue the climate
Lawmakers Consider Climate Change Amid Backdrop of Hurricanes, Heat Waves
More Americans are paying attention as the climate crisis is coming into sharper focus amid a chaotic summer of disasters that pummeled every inch of the country. Nearly 1 in 3 Americans reside in a county that was hit by extreme weather over the summer, according to an analysis by The Washington Post. "(Climate change) is at the center of national political debates like it hasn't in the past," says Matto Mildenberger, a political science professor specializing in environmental politics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. "This is an attention to climate that we wouldn't have seen five to 10 years ago.
The company Colossal wants to leave the wool mammoth resurrected again. His resettlement could help defuse a ticking climate bomb in Siberia.
10,000 years ago, man has virtually eradicated the giant. The most recent populations survived until 4,000 years only on islands. Now thewants to start a new attempt to revive the extinct style. You want to settle in a "Pleistocene Park" in Russia. This is reminiscent of the dinosaur resurrection of Jurassic Park. This also fits the iridescent star of the Genforscher and founder, George Church. He and his people find, the world must be "healed" and they would have found the right way. Most recently, Startup has received $ 15 million from a first round of financing. It wants to help with his genetic .

•goal: primeval system explains the design laboratory
Colossal, the own efforts to extinction of species would have the potential, An "functioning model for the restoration of damaged or lost ecosystems" anchors. Since there is too little genetic material to clone the original gifts, Church and his staff are helping: inside with elephant cells. The geneticists use the conglers Crispr-Cas9 to specifically cut DNA and to insert them into the target cells. In fact, Colossal creates a new way, an elephant mammoth hybrid. The "new woolmammut" wants to settle Church in a huge protected area in Eastern Siberia, where another particularly dedicated scientist pursues a bold plan to rescue the World Climate: Sergej Simow.
The budget bill could be the last hope for climate action from Congress
After decades of inaction from the United States on climate, President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats face a reckoning. © Stefani Reynolds/Bloomberg/Getty Images Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer speaks to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi outside the Capitol in June. Biden has big climate ambitions, vowing in April to cut greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030. The world is watching closely to see whether the US will deliver on that promise, as the President's climate envoy, John Kerry, prepares to meet with global leaders in November for the United Nations climate summit.
Pleistocene Park in Siberia is intended to defuse climate change bomb
Sergej Simow and his son Nikita settle there artists from the Pleistocene to stop the thawing of the Permafrost floors. Her little Jurassic park already has reindeer, bisons and jakuten horses - mammoths are still missing. The Simows have found that the resolve of the Tundra lowers the temperature of the permaFost. The big herbivores promote the growth of the bright steppe grass, which in turn rejects the sunlight. Thus it reduces the heat that the floor absorbs and keeps the temperature low. The Permafrost floors of Siberia represent a ticking climate time bomb: there is more carbon enclosed when the three-time burning of all forests of the earth could produce. Colossal expresses it in numbers: 1,600 billion metric tons of carbon dune there.
Conservatives, don’t surrender on climate change .
Climate change is an issue usually associated with the Left. However, it presents Republicans and conservatives an unparalleled opportunity to make inroads with Generation Z while reshaping the climate debate. © Provided by Washington Examiner For years, many on the Right chose to surrender on the issue rather than fight back and champion conservative climate solutions. The failure of the surrender strategy draws a stark contrast with the recent policy proposals by Republican conservationists. House Republicans such as Rep. John Curtis of Utah and Rep.
