Removing Carbon Dioxide From Air Important In Warmer World
2012-07-25 14:13:10

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Although their development and implementation can be costly, techniques to remove and store carbon dioxide from the atmosphere may become increasingly important as the planet potentially shifts into permanently warmer state, according to a paper about to be published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Economic and political costs often hamper the development of techniques that could potentially lower the...

Rising Carbon Dioxide In Atmosphere Speeds Carbon Loss From Forest Soils

Underappreciated player in carbon storage should be included in global change models, researcher says Elevated levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide accelerate carbon cycling and soil carbon loss in forests, new research led by an Indiana University biologist has found. The new evidence supports an emerging view that although forests remove a substantial amount of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, much of the carbon is being stored in living woody biomass rather than as dead organic...

Carbon stored in Arctic tundra could be released into the atmosphere by new trees growing in the warmer region, exacerbating climate change, scientists have revealed. The Arctic is getting greener as plant growth increases in response to a warmer climate. This greater plant growth means more carbon is stored in the increasing biomass, so it was previously thought the greening would result in more carbon dioxide being taken up from the atmosphere, thus helping to reduce the rate of global...

Tiny microbes are at the heart of a novel agricultural technique to manage harmful greenhouse gas emissions. Scientists have discovered how microbes can be used to turn carbon dioxide emissions into soil-enriching limestone, with the help of a type of tree that thrives in tropical areas, such as West Africa. Researchers have found that when the Iroko tree is grown in dry, acidic soil and treated with a combination of natural fungus and bacteria, not only does the tree flourish, it also...
