National Academies Report Offers Roadmap for Ocean Carbon Storage

It’s clear from climate science that we need to drop greenhouse gas emissions to zero as quickly as possible. But it’s also clear from our slow progress that we could use some help with those emissions. One thing that can help is carbon dioxide removal, as it allows us to reach net-zero emissions even as some difficult-to-solve emissions remain.

Carbon removal on land—including obvious techniques like reforestation—gets a lot of attention. Carbon removal in the ocean, on the other hand, has seemed a bit pie-in-the-sky, even though the ocean already soaks up more CO2 than land ecosystems do. A new National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine report takes up the challenge of outlining what we would need to learn to make some theoretical techniques for boosting ocean uptake a reality—or to rule them out. The report follows 2015 and 2019 reports that set the state for carbon dioxide removal science more broadly.

Boosting productivity

The report aims to provide some direction, both for scientists designing studies and for funders (like the National Science Foundation) setting priorities. It’s the work of a sizable group of scientists organized by the National Academies, with funding provided by a sponsorship from the ClimateWorks Foundation.

Truist has initiated coverage on Verastem Oncology Inc (NASDAQ: VSTM) with a Buy rating and $6.00 price target, equivalent to approximately 350% upside.
Analyst Srikripa Devarakonda notes that trading at about 2-times cash, the stock is “undervalued” given its programs in two cancers.
Devarakonda adds that the Verastem base case is supported by a $470 million unadjusted U.S. opportunity in the ovarian cancer program, “early but strong” clinical data, and positive expert feedback.

Apple will stream its next hardware event to the masses on March 8 at 10 am Pacific (1 pm Eastern), the company announced today. Invitations have already been sent to the press—though the event will be yet another prerecorded, streaming-only presentation with no media in attendance. Apple marketing SVP Greg Joswiak tweeted the now-customary Apple-logo-centric teaser video that doesn’t actually tease anything.

We never know exactly what will be announced at any given Apple event, but Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that the lineup will include a refresh of the budget-friendly iPhone SE and the first iPad Air update in a little over a year.

Rumors have also circulated about updated designs and new Apple Silicon chips for the MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro, and the high-end Intel Mac Mini, the 27-inch iMac, and the Mac Pro are all still running Intel chips. The characteristically cryptic “peek performance” tagline does at least hint at new chips for one or more Macs, whether that’s a truly next-gen Apple M2 for thin-and-light laptops or an M1 Pro/Max-focused refresh for the more powerful desktops.
