Latest Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere Stories
UK researchers have identified a biological mechanism that could explain how the Earth’s atmospheric carbon dioxide and climate were stabilized over the past 24 million years.
A four-degree-Celsius rise in the Earth’s surface temperature could max out the amount of carbon dioxide forests can trap from the atmosphere.
Can an abandoned mine help with the fight against global warming? Researchers from Stanford University think so. They have been using an abandoned mine to gain new insights on how to permanently entomb greenhouse gas emissions inside the Earth.
The carbon dioxide content already present in the Earth’s atmosphere would continue to cause warming for hundreds of years, even if the emissions were to suddenly stop today, according to new research from Princeton University.
Scientists released their annual Global Carbon Budget report on Tuesday, which found that carbon dioxide emissions will reach a record high of 40 billion tons in 2013.
If a new study based on fossil amber is correct, then the atmosphere of the Cretaceous had a relatively low oxygen content – making the high-oxygen theories severely flawed.
The Environmental Protection Agency today is hosting a “Public Listening Session” at the Metcalfe Federal Building in Chicago, allowing the public to weigh in on the Obama administration’s
While we learned earlier this year that 2012 was the ninth warmest year since 1880, this week we were greeted with news that greenhouse gases, like carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide, hit record highs in that same year.
According to a new study led by Princeton University, enhanced growth of the Earth's plants during the 20th century has caused a significant slowdown of the Earth's transition to being "red-hot."
In a new study, researchers’ analysis of rock samples from the Archean era only deepen the mystery surrounding the origins of life on Earth.
- The act of burning, scorching, or heating to dryness; the state or being thus heated or dried.
- In medicine, cauterization.
