Early Earth Relied On Carbon To Keep Warm Enough For Life
2013-07-10 13:58:57

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.

Global Cooling Versus Global Warming
2013-06-17 05:31:21

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.

Purple Urchins Quickly Adapt To Acidic Oceans
2013-06-13 11:41:25

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.

Carbon Found To Leak From Land To Water
2013-06-11 09:35:26

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.

New CO2 Removal Technique Produces Green Fuel, Offsets Ocean Acidification
2013-05-29 10:31:52

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.

Experts To Track Big City Carbon Footprints
2013-05-13 04:38:01

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.

Revised Estimates Show CO2 Levels Had Not Actually Surpassed 400ppm
2013-05-13 13:30:18

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.

New Technique Draws Modern Lessons From Ancient Climate Shift
2013-04-23 10:31:22

A new technique has allowed a team of scientists to connect temperatures to a massive shift in atmospheric carbon dioxide that occurred around 34 million years ago.

2013-04-22 09:59:09

A new global-scale modeling study that takes into account nitrogen – a key nutrient for plants – estimates that carbon emissions from human activities on land were 40 percent higher in the 1990s than in studies that did not account for nitrogen.
