Latest Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere Stories
Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) can reverse the global warming trend and push temperatures back below the global target of 2°C above pre-industrial levels, even if current policies fail and we initially overshoot this target.
Trees are becoming more efficient at using water in response to higher atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, according to new research published Wednesday in the journal Nature.
University of Colorado Boulder researchers have figured out how early Earth was warm enough to support life when the sun was 20 percent dimmer than today.
Scientists writing in the journal Nature Geoscience report that a cold snap which occurred 116 million years ago triggered an event in the marine ecosystem known as global cooling.
A new study has found that purple sea urchins Strongylocentrotus purpuratus are capable of evolving in a way that copes with potential negative impacts of ocean acidification.
A new study, published in Nature Geoscience, suggests that human activity might be increasing the transition of carbon from land to rivers, estuaries and the coastal zones. This indicates that large quantities of anthropogenic carbon might be hidden in previously unconsidered regions.
A new technique to remove and store atmospheric carbon dioxide has been demonstrated by scientists. The new technique also generates carbon-negative hydrogen and produces alkalinity, which can be used to offset ocean acidification.
Scientists from across the globe are joining forces to track the carbon footprints of some of the world’s largest cities, hoping to determine whether or not emissions standards in various regions are being met.
Atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have surpassed 400 parts per million (ppm) for the first time in human history, according to data released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
