New research presented by scientists at McGill University suggests that the construction of safe bike infrastructure could significantly reduce vehicle tailpipe emissions by offering potential motorists an attractive alternative to getting in their cars.
Existing recovery methods often require high temperatures to evaporate the mercury, separating it from the other material inside the bulbs. Parisa A. Ariya of McGill University and her colleagues wanted to devise a technique that used natural, nontoxic compounds and minimal energy. Instead of heat, they used nanoparticles to trap the mercury.

Countries have been signing the pledges they made last December at the Paris Conference on Climate Change. Think back to that time and ask yourself which had greater influence on your personal behavior: the TV clips you saw from that conference, or the ads that sponsored those clips?...
Probablement que plus de 95 % de tout ce que nous utilisons dans une journée est le fruit d’un processus chimique, ainsi que l’essentiel de ce que nous mangeons, rapporte Bruce Lennox, professeur de chimie et doyen de la Faculté des sciences de l’Université McGill.
Canadians are among the largest producers of solid waste in the world. According to Environment Canada, we generate 990 kilograms per capita annually compared to the Japanese, for example, who produce half that much.
Dr. Jeff Bergthorson, a professor of Mechanical Engineering at McGill University, and his colleagues, think the answer to the difficult problem of energy storage and transportation in a fossil-fuel-free future could be metals.
Dylan Clark moved to Montreal to begin a master’s program with James Ford and the Climate Change Adaptation Research Group in the Department of Geography at McGill University to do work in climate change and health. This interesting retrospective written by Mr. Clark paints a picture of the life of an Arctic researcher and the cultural and physical environments they encounter.
