Are you out of baking powder? Why, turn to carbon dioxide! Company Carbonclean is planning to turn planet-heating CO2 emissions into profit by converting them into something else. That's right, they plan on converting CO2 into baking powder and even lock up 60,000 tonnes of CO2 a year!
A new study from the University of Minnesota found secondary tropical forests are able to sequester 11 times more carbon than old-growth forests. Researchers say this will help conservationists manage forest better.
Following rampant deforestation in Europe, conservationists planted fast-growing, commercially valuable conifer trees, rather than native broadleaved trees. It turns out this type of forest management has accelerated climate change.
Darkness blankets the icy north in the winter, but tiny Arctic marine creatures are guided by the light of the moon. Researchers say the creatures' regular vertical migrations could help store more carbon deep in the ocean.
Evergreens may soon disappear from the Southwest region of the U.S. if climate change scenarios play out as expected, researchers say. Not only will we lose beautiful natural forests, but doing so also means less carbon storage.
The extinction of large fruit-eating animals from tropical rainforests could make climate change worse. Researchers suggest refocusing conservation efforts to ensure these animals are around to disperse trees’ seeds and promote growth in these essential carbon sinks.
Tropical fossil forests from 380 million years ago were recently unearthed in Norway and are believed to have triggered a drastic climate shift experienced during this time.
Years after the infamous Anaktuvuk River fire – the largest recorded Arctic tundra fire – researchers have found a link between wildfires in the Arctic tundra and widespread permafrost thaw.
Animals' poop plays a key role in keeping the planet fertile. However, when large animals go extinct the natural cycling of nutrients from deep ocean waters to high mountainous areas is significantly reduced, researchers revealed in a new study.
With Halloween fast approaching, this is a good time to learn about a relatively small crustacean known as the Halloween crab for its colorful appearance.
Vines are becoming increasingly abundant in tropical forests as a result of climate change and severe seasonal drought and their rapid growth is harming trees and impacting carbon storage, a new study has revealed.
Researchers who looked at both NASA satellite images and sophisticated imaging that looks at currents and light in the ocean to determine phytoplankton numbers, have determined that since 1998, some of the food-chain building blocks and carbon storers have declined.
Researchers have been surveying bottom-dwellers in Antarctica for over two decades. After comparing high-resolution images, they found that an increasing amount of marine organisms are produced annually and they are storing surprisingly high amounts of carbon.
Protected areas in Indonesia have reduced mangrove habitat loss. According to a Duke University study, this also prevented significant amounts of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere.
