Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the primary greenhouse gas emitted through human activities. In 2014, CO2 accounted for about 80.9% of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions from human activities, dramatically affecting the climate. Can we harness some of this CO2 and put it to good use?

What people are saying about Tilde Cafe'

  • What a wonderful resource you are providing to the global community - I don't live in CT but have been following your website and activities for the last year. Please keep up this effort.
  • This most recent presentation (3/20/2010) is the second lecture I've attended. I will say that the Branford library seems like the better choice in sheer terms of size for accommodating a crowd. Both lectures were wonderful, and I look especially forward to the discussion on dark matter/energy.
  • I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend the lecture at Blackstone Library given by Amanda Folsom. I am sharing what I learned there with my Wallingford Adult Education students.
