410.28 ppm to be exact, is the highest the world has ever seen and they warned that 410 ppm is just the start of the terrifying records that will shock us in the upcoming months.
Excessive carbon emissions have been the biggest problem of environmentalists and global warming enthusiasts for the past decades. The increasing need for supplies and electricity has created a rapid growth in industries with large carbon footprints. Systems with less carbon emissions are being developed and implemented all over the world. However, what are we going to do with existing CO2 in the environment?
A team of scientists has discovered a way on how to store carbon dioxide (CO2) into rocks, converting it into stable carbonate minerals. This new technology opens up a possible solution for lessening carbon emissions, making the Paris Climate Agreement target more achievable.
Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere have reached a critical threshold for the first time in history since 2014.
Scientists found that exposure to high levels of carbon dioxide alters fish’s brain chemistry and causes behavioral impairments.
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.
In the shallow seas around a place now known for its world-famous creative-writing program at the University of Iowa, an aggressive "sea scorpion," shunted through waves. More on it and its strange Paleozoic Era fellows, here.
Currently, the U.S. has 989 open and closed landfills, which amounts to a great deal of methane leaking from all that piled waste. The EPA's recent proposal seeks to regulate the emissions of at least 574 of those. The proposals also address controlling fracking emissions.
As we look at which marine species will be resilient to climate change, we might want to look at marine worms near a volcanic vent in the Mediterranean. They've changed their behavior in raising young, researchers say.
Using a suite of undersea vehicles and robotics, scientists have located unique carbon dioxide pools -- beautiful and iridescent -- in an Aegean caldera.
Reducing deforestation rates in the tropics could significantly cut the world's carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, a new study suggests.
Fish living on coral reefs where carbon dioxide seeps from the ocean floor were less able than fish from normal coral reefs to detect the scent of predators, according to a new study that seems to confirm laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean.
Rising levels of carbon dioxide are causing the desert to bloom, according to a new study published in the journal U.S. Geophysical Research Letters.
