Overuse of fertilizer has led to phosphorus shortages and water pollution. But farms might not need so much to grow healthy crops.
Julia RosenWe have a phosphorus problem—2 actually: we’re running out of this critical nutrient and polluting the environment with it at the same time. One solution is to help plants "use our mistakes from the past.”

There’s a huge fire debt in the West that must be paid off, experts say, either through controlled burns or out-of-control blazes. Either way, that means smoke.
Julia RosenThe smoke we’ve experienced over the last few weeks was unprecedented. But it was also a reminder that smoke has always been—and will always be—part of life in the west.

A UCLA team is vying for the Carbon XPrize, a competition to see who can recycle the most CO2 by turning it into useful products like concrete.
Julia RosenOne way to fight climate change is to make CO2 into something useful rather than letting it escape into the atmosphere.

Talking about global warming with friends and family helps them learn key facts about the scientific agreement on climate change and influences their beliefs.
Julia RosenOnly a third of Americans talk about climate change even occasionally. But discussing global warming with friends and family is powerful way to change people’s beliefs, according to a new study. My latest
Over the course of its expected lifetime, existing energy infrastructure will emit too much carbon dioxide to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
Julia RosenExisting power plants and other energy infrastructure will gobble up the carbon budget for 1.5 degrees—if they are allowed to operate for the rest of their expected lifetimes, according to a new study. My latest
