Can Paris pledges avert severe climate change?
A study published in Science today shows that if the emission reductions pledges brought to Paris are implemented and followed by measures of equal or greater ambition, they have the potential to reduce the probability of the highest levels of warming, and increase the probability of limiting global warming to 2 degrees Celsius.

Climate-friendly rice recognized as a top science development of 2015
The creation of a new kind of rice which gives off nearly zero greenhouse gas emissions during its growth has earned kudos for a team of scientists from three continents, including the lead investigator at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. The new kind of rice grows in a manner that nearly eliminates the production of methane, a potent greenhouse gas.

PPPL physicists use computers to uncover mechanism that stabilizes plasma within tokamaks
A team of physicists led by Stephen Jardin of the US Department of Energy's Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory has discovered a mechanism that prevents the electrical current flowing through fusion plasma from repeatedly peaking and crashing. This behavior is known as a 'sawtooth cycle' and can cause instabilities within the plasma's core. The results have been published online in Physical Review Letters. The research was supported by the DOE Office of Science.

Managing the data deluge for national security analysts
National security analysts often find that available data is growing much faster than their ability to observe and process it. Sometimes they can't make key connections and often they are overwhelmed struggling to use data for predictions and forensics. Sandia National Laboratories' Pattern Analytics to Support High-Performance Exploitation and Reasoning team has developed solutions that will enable analysts to work smarter, faster and more effectively when looking at complex data in real-time, stressful environments.
