Beijing, the capital of China, has recently announced that it will ban all industrial use of coal by the end of 2020 in a continued effort to severely cap its country's greenhouse gas emissions.
The Danish city of Copenhagen has decided to host a massive experiment to determine the effectiveness of so-called "smart lights" - energy efficient street lamps that could cut carbon emissions and even help monitor an urban setting.
Past research has shown that forests will, in some ways, benefit greatly from the anticipated increased levels of carbon dioxide across the globe. However, a new study has found that negative disturbances in forests are on the rise, becoming more common and causing a significant amount of trouble and confusion about these all-important ecosystems.
The United Kingdom is sticking to its guns, and will maintain its goal to cut carbon emissions in half of 1990 levels by 2027, Energy Secretary Ed Davey announced Tuesday - a target political opposition says will be difficult to meet.
NASA is bringing together marine and atmospheric scientists for a very unusual purpose. The space agency says that it wants to spy on phytoplankton from space.
A recent United Nations report claims that Australia is one developed country that can afford to make massive cuts to its greenhouse gas footprint. However, the country "down under" has - if anything - lessened its control of greenhouse gas emissions this year.
A recent report from a group of international science institutions claims that the world's top greenhouse gas emitters are largely failing to cut enough carbon emissions in time to prevent drastic climate change.
Climate researchers and economic experts have pooled their knowledge to draw up a map of what actions leading countries should take in the battle against man-driven carbon emissions.
A Chinese environmental group launched a smartphone app Monday that tracks and exposes polluting companies, acting on the country's inclination to make such data more available and welcoming public monitoring of breaches in environmental safety.
Even with President Barack Obama's recent plan to cut carbon emissions from power plants up to 30 percent by 2030, it still leaves the United States short of its climate change pledge before the United Nations, a study said Wednesday.
Green technology and sustainability efforts are all well and good, but a new UCLA report says that the best way to combat global warming is to cut carbon emissions, coinciding with the Obama administration's new proposal to reduce such emissions.
Scientists at Stanford University have discovered an efficient way to produce liquid ethanol from carbon monoxide gas, with the hope that it will serve as an eco-friendly alternative to the use of corn and other crops to produce ethanol.
Removal of predators at the top of the food chain causes a significant rise in carbon emissions, says a new study.
