Water in the supercritical region of the P-T phase diagram (ISS experiment) - 1 views

  •  
    Bringing water to that supercritical phase (high pressurization and temperature) renders it into an oxidation agent of organic material with pure CO_2 and H2O as products. Less waste volume in the ISS. Also, all contained salts precipitate out at that phase.

This is despite the fact that the Defense Department has called climate change a potential "accelerant of instability."

    The Medill School of Journalism graduate student team began publication on January 10 of its findings on the national security implications of climate change with a series of print, video and interactive stories."
