The U.S. climate bill would allow states that are profoundly dependant on greenhouse-gas releases fuels to have more carbon credits on a per capita basis, says a study of the legislation published on Wednesday. States that have already reduced gas emissions have long thought of how well they would be rewarded with the new federal climate bill. Really the only perks under the bill that passed through the U.S. House of Representatives will be less expensive compliance costs, says the review...

Underwater creatures, including small swimming animals like jellyfish, play a crucial role in the mixing of ocean waters, scientists reported on Wednesday. Writing in the July 30 issue of the journal Nature, John Dabiri, a Caltech bioengineer and Caltech graduate student Kakani Katija, discovered that both large and small underwater creatures contribute to the process of ocean mixing. "The perspective we usually take is how the ocean--by its currents, temperature, and chemistry--is affecting...

Attempting to tackle climate change by trapping carbon dioxide or switching to nuclear power will not solve the problem of global warming, according to energy calculations published this month in the International Journal of Global Warming.Bo Nordell and Bruno Gervet of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Luleå University of Technology in Sweden have calculated the total energy emissions from the start of the industrial revolution in the 1880s to the...

Widely sought efforts to reduce fuels that increase catastrophic fire in Pacific Northwest forests will be counterproductive to another important societal goal of sequestering carbon to help offset global warming, forestry researchers at Oregon State University conclude in a new report.Even if the biofuels were used in an optimal manner to produce electricity or make cellulosic ethanol, there would still be a net loss of carbon sequestration in forests of the Coast Range and the west side of...

 The forests of the Pacific Northwest hold significant potential to increase carbon storage and help mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in coming years, a recent study concludes, if they are managed primarily for that purpose through timber harvest reductions and increased rotation ages.In the complete absence of stand-replacing disturbances "“ via fire or timber harvest "“ forests of Oregon and Northern California could theoretically almost double their carbon...

U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu and Italian Minister of Economic Development Claudio Scajola have signed a carbon capture and storage agreement. The bilateral agreement, signed Saturday in Rome, is designed to advance carbon capture and storage technologies in each country, officials said. Working together, the United States and Italy will further the development of technologies needed to limit carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired powered plants and move toward a sustainable low carbon...
