Obesity, climate change: it’s all about ΔG

Lets go back to the basics of chemistry. Delta G is change in energy (or “Gibbs free energy”). If  ΔG is positive, you need to add energy to make a reaction happen. Look at this flowering plant. Through photosynthesis, this plant is converting energy from the sun, and carbon dioxide, into chemical energy that the plant can use (in the form of carbohydrates). This process … Continue reading Obesity, climate change: it’s all about ΔG
