CU grads Tyler Huggins (Ph.D. Environmental Engineering) and Justin Whiteley have formed a successful startup known as Meati Foods in NE Boulder, which grows lab-cultured mycelium indoors in stainless steel tanks, similar to those used to brew beer. The process uses 99% less water and land, and emits 99% less carbon dioxide than conventionally produced animal protein. Meati Foods has already attracted $28.2 million in investment funding and cultivates a scalable protein product that is remarkably similar in texture to steak and chicken cutlets, a viable market competitor to companies like Impossible (burger) and Beyond Meat.

A study led by CU Boulder Assistant Professor, Peter Newton, is the first to tally ‘forest proximate’ humans on earth; numbers, refined terminology may improve the focus of conservation and development.
Congratulations to Assistant Professor, Eve Hinckley, and collaborators, Holly Barnard and Katherine Lininger, on their recent NSF grant to support interdisciplinary research on ‘the critical zone’ — from Earth’s bedrock to tree canopy top — in the American West.
Roger Pielke and an international team of investigators will spend the next year scouring public documents, interviewing journalists and political insiders and collecting data to paint a picture of how at least seven countries utilized scientific advice to address the pandemic.
Congratulations to Eve-Lyn Hinckley for her new paper out today in Nature Geoscience which identifies fertilizer and pesticide applications to croplands as the largest source of sulfur in the environment—up to 10 times higher than the peak sulfur load seen in the second half of the 20th century, during the days of acid rain.
