Let’s launch a satellite to track a threatening greenhouse gas | Fred Krupp

When we talk about greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide gets the most attention — but methane, which often escapes unseen from pipes and wells, has a far greater immediate impact on global warming. Environmentalist Fred Krupp has an idea to fix the problem: launch a satellite that tracks global methane emissions, and openly share the data it collects with the public. Learn more about how simple fixes to cut down on this invisible pollutant can help us put the brakes on climate change. (This ambitious plan is one of the first ideas of The Audacious Project, TED’s new initiative to inspire global change.)

A new way to remove CO2 from the atmosphere | Jennifer Wilcox

Our planet has a carbon problem — if we don’t start removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, we’ll grow hotter, faster. Chemical engineer Jennifer Wilcox previews some amazing technology to scrub carbon from the air, using chemical reactions that capture and reuse CO2 in much the same way trees do … but at a vast scale. This detailed talk reviews both the promise and the pitfalls.

The tiny creature that secretly powers the planet | Penny Chisholm

Oceanographer Penny Chisholm tells the story of a tiny ocean creature you’ve probably never heard of: Prochlorococcus, the most abundant photosynthetic species on the planet. A marine microbe that has existed for millions of years, Prochlorococcus wasn’t discovered until the mid-1980s — but its ancient genetic code may hold clues to how we can reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.

The discoveries awaiting us in the ocean’s twilight zone | Heidi M. Sosik

What will we find in the twilight zone: the vast, mysterious, virtually unexplored realm hundreds of meters below the ocean’s surface? Heidi M. Sosik of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution wants to find out. In this wonder-filled talk, she shares her plan to investigate these uncharted waters, which may hold a million new species and 90 percent of the world’s fish biomass, using submersible technology. What we discover there won’t just astound us, Sosik says — it will help us be better stewards of the world’s oceans. (This ambitious plan is one of the first ideas of The Audacious Project, TED’s new initiative to inspire global change.)
