A team of researchers and engineers in France has developed a tool to allow labs to work out their carbon footprint. The open source GES 1point5 enables labs to calculate the carbon dioxide emissions from heating, electricity and refrigeration; vehicles; professional travel for field work or conferences; commuting, as well as the purchase of digital devices. This includes the manufacturing of digital devices but doesn’t yet cover emissions from digital devices outside the laboratory, such as cloud servers. The calculations can be made for a lab as a whole and individual researchers, with the data presented according to internationally recognised…

He called for finance to protect the Amazon and for debt forgiveness to allow his country to use its own resources to tackle forest loss. The Colombian government has promised to go after “land grabbers”…
