You know all that excess carbon dioxide in our atmosphere that everyone is worried about? A team of researchers has recently discovered how to convert it into something a little less harmful: an organic compound called oxalate.
And just when we thought it was all bad news, a study recently led by NASA experts has revealed that the Earth's tropical forests are somehow absorbing more carbon dioxide (CO2) than experts thought possible, taking the harmful greenhouse gas from our atmosphere at unprecedented rates.
Warming that occurred almost 56 million years ago isn't all that different from the human-caused global warming we're experiencing today. And a new study suggests that this past warming event can provide a window into future climate change.
You've likely heard about our ocean's methane plumes - dangerous greenhouse gases being slowly released from their icy seafloor prisons. Now a new study of the seafloor off the West Coast of the United States has revealed that these gaseous "leaks" are already escalating to a full blown jail break, with methane escaping at 500 times its average rate of natural release.
You think you know the major sources of the greenhouse gases that are driving climate change? According to a recent international survey, you've probably got the wrong idea.
Just after scientists revealed the mathematical link between carbon emissions and warming, a new study has found that it takes just 10 years for Earth to feel the warming effects of these emissions after their released.
Most climatologists, ecologists, and even the World Bank have all reached a consensus that climate change is occurring. Experts and policymakers alike have attributed rising concentrations of carbon dioxide to net warming, but finding straightforward evidence of this can be difficult. Now, a team of researchers claims that they have identified, for the first time, how global warming is related to the amount of carbon emitted in a mathematical proof.
NASA has released an ultra-high resolution video from their computer models that can give us a stunning view of how carbon dioxide travels and builds over the course of a year.
Heightened carbon levels could make allergy seasons near-insufferable for future generations. That's because more carbon dioxide may mean more pollen on the wind, according to a new study.
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has reported that car companies are certainly catching on to the green revolution, consistently creating cars with significantly lowered emissions and improved gas mileage compared to past models.
Brazil is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, but not with cars and power plants. A study recent details how the effect of rainforest degradation has been underestimated in fragmented rainforest regions, with lonely trees not doing their expected share of carbon cleanup.
Contrary to its goal to reduce carbon emissions by up to 45 percent by 2020, China has seen a three percent increase in the greenhouse gas thanks to its rampant economic boom, according to a new study from the University of East Anglia (UEA).
A new report is ranking America's power plants as some of the worst polluters the world has seen, sullying our air with more carbon emissions that the industries of Russia, India, and Japan combined.
Recent research has revealed that trees across the world continue to grow significantly faster than they did before the 1960s, but what's the cause? Experts from Technische Universität München (TUM) provide evidence and speculation about this mysterious phenomenon in a recent study.
