Ultrafine aerosol particles intensify rainfall in Amazon region

Ultrafine aerosol particles intensify rainfall in Amazon region
A study published in the journal Science shows how the presence in the atmosphere of ultrafine aerosol particles (less than 50 nm in diameter) can intensify the cloud formation process and rainfall in the Amazon region. According to the authors of the article, these nanoparticles have always been thought too small to play a significant role in regulating the hydrologic cycle. While this is indeed the case in polluted areas such as European and US cities, or São Paulo in Southeast Brazil, their role in the Amazon is different.

Brazilian ethanol can replace 13.7% of world’s crude oil consumption

Brazilian ethanol can replace 13.7% of world’s crude oil consumption
Expansion of sugarcane cultivation in Brazil for ethanol production in areas not under environmental protection or reserved for food production could potentially replace up to 13.7% of world crude oil consumption and reduce global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) by as much as 5.6% by 2045. These estimates come from an international study with Brazilian participation, whose results were published in the journal Nature Climate Change.
