Latest Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere Stories
Decomposing crops could be responsible for one-fourth of the post-summer increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, and this discovery could help scientists better understand and predict how the planet’s vegetation will react to warming temperatures.
When fossil fuels are burned, other climate-forcing gases are produced in addition to long-lasting carbon dioxide.
New research led by scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee has found that global climate change models may have underestimated the amount of carbon dioxide absorption by green plants.
Carbon dioxide emissions, which are the one of the main contributors to global warming, are expected to reach a record high of 40 billion tons in 2014, according to new Global Carbon Project (GCP) data released this weekend.
Scientists analyze marine sediment core to understand trends in carbon isotopes over time.
Propelled by the largest single-year increase in carbon dioxide in three decades, the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached record highs in 2013, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) reported on Tuesday.
Existing power plants worldwide will be responsible for 300 billion tons of future carbon dioxide emissions, with fossils fuels )particularly coal) still proving dominant in energy production.
It has long been known that biomass burning – burning forests to create agricultural lands, burning savannah as a ritual , slash-and-burn agriculture and wildfires – figures into both climate change and public health.
What do mollusks, starfish, and corals have in common? Aside from their shared marine habitat, they are all calcifiers — organisms that use calcium from their environment to create hard carbonate skeletons and shells for stability and protection.
Biologists at UC San Diego have solved a long-standing mystery concerning the way plants reduce the numbers of their breathing pores in response to rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.
