James Sullivan talks here about the Comet 67P and the gaseous oxygen (unusual) and other findings on it that have learnings for us regarding the beginning of life on our planet.
Animals with four-chambered stomachs that process plants are known as ruminants. Some of them, like cows, produce quite a bit of methane as they process the food. Kangaroos have been thought to produce much less. A recent study from University of Zurich says kangaroos are more gassy than we thought, but has learnings for cows on the planet.
Researchers from Yale University and University of Florida say the nation's garbage totals are higher than the EPA's estimates, and they're looking at how we can target greenhouse gases.
Titan, which is rife with liquid methane seas and has a north pole that is wet with methane that survives in its very cold temperatures, might be better understood following recent UCLA findings.
Researchers from University of Cambridge and University of Colorado say that if active steps are taken by nations to decrease emissions from permafrost thaw in particular, this could reduce predicted emissions cost by $37 trillion. But that's not the case yet.
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.
Graduate students from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California-San Diego discovered a methane seep about 30 miles off the coast. This site is home to many unique, adaptable species, and is the first found in the region.
Replacing old or damaged natural gas pipelines can greatly reduce methane emissions and related injuries. A Stanford-led study found that cities such as Durham and Cincinnati are already benefiting from such projects.
Researchers discovered that by soaking and heating used coffee grounds through simple processes, the waste could instead be used to store methane.
A methane-eating bacteria might be the secret to fighting global warming. New copper storage proteins in bacteria were found to store metal in a way that has never been seen before.
A planetary scientist explains that, with some adaptations, life-forms similar to Earth's could live on other planets' environments as well.
New research looks at carbon-poor soil and the bacteria within it that would likely eat methane, even as temperatures in the Arctic rise.
Climatologists didn't see this one coming. It looks like mosses, lichens, and blue-green algae are all major players in the Earth's complex and often-confusing carbon cycle. Now, new research has revealed how these organisms regularly release some of the most intense greenhouse gasses known to man, demanding more attention be pointed their way.
Carbon emissions for tar-sands refined oil and gas are significantly higher than for domestic crude, because of processes involved, say researchers.
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.
