African rainfall may rise with greenhouse gas levels, according to a new study.
As humans pump carbon dioxide into the air, adding to the greenhouse gas effect, over time it acts as the Earth's own version of tanning oil, rather than covering it in a warm blanket like previous research suggested.
Scientists have discovered a massive methane "hot spot" in the southwest United States - a surprising development considering that the region is the largest leakage ever of the greenhouse gas, and more than triple the standard ground-based estimate.
Environmentalists have taken to the New York City streets this week in protest against world leaders who they believe have lost sight of their vows to take action against climate change, hopefully creating enough inertia to renew their efforts.
More than a dozen big-name US companies have agreed, in accordance with an Obama administration push announced Tuesday, to cut back on use of a popular coolant that contributes to global warming by emitting a potent greenhouse gas.
Researchers have recently discovered that over the last 150 years, the conversion of forests into cropland has actually resulted in a small amount of global cooling. These results underscore the overall complexity of the climate change issue.
A vast amount of carbon stored in Arctic permafrost is being converted into carbon dioxide (CO2) once it enters freshwater systems - a process that is worrying experts tracking climate change. This process was long thought to be enabled by microbial activity, but a new study identifies that sunlight itself might be the true culprit.
A newly developed sponge-like plastic that is capable of soaking up the notorious greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) could ease our transition away from harmful fossil fuels and toward cleaner energy, according to a new study.
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.
Climate-cooling Arctic thermokarst lakes stabilize climate change by soaking up more greenhouse gases than they emit into the atmosphere, according to new research.
Massive amounts of methane gas have been coming from the world's oceans, and researchers have finally determined why. Strains of SAR11, the oceans' most abundant organism, can release large amounts of the potent greenhouse gas when starving, according to a recent study.
Since a malfunction five years ago put the mission on hiatus, NASA's Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 is gearing up for its second launch attempt Tuesday from the California coast, hopefully becoming the first successful spacecraft to measure and monitor harmful greenhouse gas levels.
For the first time researchers have made solar jet fuel from scratch by combining carbon dioxide and water in a reactor powered by concentrated sunlight.
A former NASA scientist described global warming as "nonsense," dismissing the theory that climate change is a man-made problem, a belief held by President Barack Obama, and advocated that it is "absolutely stupid" to blame recent UK floods on human activity, the latest reports indicate.
