    Matthew Modine: It's Easy Being Green

    The Miami Herald interviews actor Matthew Modine about his new role: environmental advocate. Modine has long been vocal about protecting our resources, and set up a program to encourage bike riding. Impressed by Weizmann science, he has now partnered with us at the American Committee to share the Institute's amazing environmental research.

    Israeli Startup Aims to Harness Excess Industrial Heat to Transform CO2, Water Into Fuel

    The Jerusalem Post reports that Rehovot-based firm NewCO2Fuels aims to harness extreme heat that is currently emitted – and wasted – by factories, and use it to drive an innovative fuel production process that was developed by Weizmann's Prof. Jacob Karni. This ""recycled"" heat will replace solar in a method for producing synthetic gas.

    Factory Waste Morphs Into Clean Syngas

    Israel21c covers the latest advance in Prof. Jacob Karni's award-winning method for producing clean energy. The process, being brought to market by NewCO2Fuels, takes a wasted source of energy – the heat put out by factories – and converts its CO2 into synthetic gas which, in turn, is used for products like plastic, fertilizer, and liquid fuel.

    It's Hot Outside. Could This Machine be the Answer to Global Warming?

    It's hot outside – and getting hotter. <em>The Times of Israel</em> examines whether Weizmann's Prof. Jacob Karni might have developed a solution, saying that he and ""an entrepreneur have patented a device that extracts carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and turns it into fuel. They say it has the potential to save life on our planet.""

    Capturing the Sun: Weizmann Scientists at The Gregory School

    Prof. David Cahen, head of the Weizmann Institute's Alternative Energy Research Initiative, and colleague Prof. Leeor Kronik discuss humankind's energy problem – specifically, that we cannot keep using energy as we do today – and potential solutions, such as use of highly efficient solar power. The event was held at The Gregory School in Tucson.

    Five Tomorrows: Five Scientists on Five Fields

    In this video, five scientists address five potential tomorrows: Dr. Michal Irani speaks about the next step in the evolution of information; Dr. Henry Markram addresses how nerve cells communicate; Dr. Nir Davidson studies how lasers trap atoms in the dark; Dr. Gad Haase examines whether light can be turned into fuel; and Dr. Michael Fainzilber searches for the snail's secret of regeneration.

    Controlling Electron Spin for Efficient Water Splitting

    Splitting water molecules to produce hydrogen for fuel holds promise for alternative energy. However, current methods of water splitting also form hydrogen peroxide, which adversely affects the process. Now, Prof. Ron Naaman and an international team have found a way to control the spin of electrons, resulting in hydrogen-peroxide-free water splitting.
