Decomposing leaves in the soil could promote nitrous oxide emissions.
Good dietary choices could help mitigate the harmful effects of climate change by reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions.
Gases like methane break down relatively quickly in the atmosphere, but it turns out their negative effects can linger for hundreds of years.
A new study revealed that over 50 trillion kilograms of carbon could be released into the atmosphere from the soil by mid-century if no moves to mitigate climate change are successful.
A new study from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) may have cracked the elusive paradox involving the potent greenhouse gas methane that baffled many marine chemists for so long.
Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere have reached a critical threshold for the first time in history since 2014.
Scientists have just discovered a breakthrough on how the issue can be resolved, and that's through topping some seaweeds over your livestock's regular meal.
California is taking a major step in ending the world's problem on climate change. Last week, the California Assembly and Senate passed Senate Bill 32 and Assembly Bill 197, which would result to a 40 percent cut in the state's greenhouse gas emission once they take into effect.
A new study from NASA examines the cause of the methane “hot spot” in New Mexico and found that emissions from the oil and gas industry in the state are to blame.
Carbon emissions apparently had stopped increasing last year as the world chose renewable and sustainable energy over controversial, non-renewable coal, a recent study shows.
China's greenhouse gas emissions may peak by the year 2025, according to a new report from the London School of Economics (LSE), easing scientists' fears of its contribution to climate change.
During the last Ice Age, massive slabs of ice covered much of North America, but new research now shows that calving icebergs resulted in a huge influx of freshwater that increased the production of the greenhouse gas, methane, in tropical wetlands.
Savannahs, though they are not jam-packed with carbon-absorbing trees, nonetheless help to slow down climate change, according to a new study.
Humanity may be struggling to find ways of reducing carbon emissions, but it seems we are not going it alone, as Mother Nature is also fighting back in her own way against climate change.
As greenhouse gas levels hit record highs and summer temperatures reach their warmest ever, scientists are frantically working to find ways of reducing the amount of carbon dioxide that enters the atmosphere. But now, new research shows that we may be able to rely - at least in part - on nature alone, which has its own methods for removing atmospheric carbon. This includes rivers, which reportedly are crucial in regulating the global carbon cycle.
