Geological formations under the North Sea could store more than 100 years' worth of emissions from British power stations, energy officials said. The process, known as carbon capture and storage, could reduce airborne carbon dioxide emissions from fossil-fueled power plants by up to 90 percent, Ed Miliband, Britain's minister for energy and climate change, said. Without carbon capture and storage, there is no solution to climate change, he said. The technology, which has yet to be tested on a...

"Green" roofs, those increasingly popular urban rooftops covered with plants, could help fight global warming, scientists in Michigan are reporting. The scientists found that replacing traditional roofing materials in an urban area the size of Detroit, with a population of about one-million, with green would be equivalent to eliminating a year's worth of carbon dioxide emitted by 10,000 mid-sized SUVs and trucks. Their study, the first of its kind to examine the ability of green roofs to...

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...
