How microbes can combat climate change

Prof. Michael Rother from TUD Dresden University of Technology is an expert in the biology of methane-producing microorganisms. In the spring of this year, he was invited by the American Academy of Microbiology to meet with other experts for a colloquium with the aim of drawing up a guideline to quickly reduce methane emissions in the fight against climate change and global warming. The report has now been published and is intended to serve as reference for decision makers, for example the US Congress.
