Latest Carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere Stories
The increasing acidity of the world's oceans - and that acidity's growing threat to marine species - are definitive proof that the atmospheric carbon dioxide that is causing climate change is also negatively affecting the marine environment.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most important greenhouse gas regulated by the Kyoto Protocol.
The Earth's temperature may be 30-50 percent more sensitive to atmospheric carbon dioxide than has previously been estimated, reports a new study published in Nature Geoscience this week.
The rising level of atmospheric carbon dioxide may be fueling more than climate change. It could also be making some trees grow like crazy.
Burning rainforests release huge amounts of greenhouse gases.
Researchers have confirmed for the first time a link between declining levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) and the formation of Antarctic ice caps some 34 million years ago.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Utility giant AEP has applied for $334 million in stimulus money to construct the first commercial scale CO2 capture and storage project at a West Virginia coal-fired power plant. That's about half the money needed for the project.
No one knows exactly how much Earth's climate will warm due to carbon emissions, but a new study this week suggests scientists' best predictions about global warming might be incorrect.
Does ozone have an impact on the ocean's role as a "carbon sink"? Yes, according to researchers from three laboratories (1) attached to INSU-CNRS (2), UPMC, CEA, IRD, MNHN and UVSQ.
Researchers have reconstructed atmospheric carbon dioxide levels over the past 2.1 million years in the sharpest detail yet, shedding new light on its role in the earth's cycles of cooling and warming.
- Any of various tropical Old World birds of the family Indicatoridae, some species of which lead people or animals to the nests of wild honeybees. The birds eat the wax and larvae that remain after the nest has been destroyed for its honey.
