FARMINGDALE, N.Y., May 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cemtrex, Inc. (OTC: CTEI) announced that it is expanding its marketing activities in Ventilation Air Methane (VAM) for generation of carbon credits. When coal is formed in the mines, so is methane.

Earth's earliest ice age could have been caused by an atmospheric rise in oxygen reacting with methane, a greenhouse gas, a geologist in Maryland said. This singular event had a profound effect on the climate, and also on life, said Alan J.

An analysis of ancient Greenland ice suggests a spike in the greenhouse gas methane about 11,600 years ago originated from wetlands rather than the ocean floor or from permafrost, a finding that is good news according to the University of Colorado at Boulder scientist who led the study.

Carbon buried in the Earth could ultimately determine the fate of our planet’s atmosphere. So concluded a pioneering meeting last week about the Earth’s long-neglected “deep” carbon cycle.


Word of the Day
postliminy
  • In Roman antiquity, the return of a person who had been banished, or taken prisoner by an enemy, to his old condition and former privileges.
  • In international law, that right by virtue of which persons and things taken by an enemy in war are restored to their former status when coming again under the power of the nation to which they belonged.
The word 'postliminy' comes from a Latin word meaning 'threshold'.
