A new scientific organisation is needed to monitor the commitments that will be made by developing countries at Copenhagen to cut their deforestation rates, according to research at the University of Leeds. Existing government agencies and research groups have failed to make full use of the thousands of satellite images of the Earth's surface collected each week to monitor tropical forests. Now, a paper published by Dr Alan Grainger in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences...

Global warming in the next century could cause a significant increase in the productivity of high-elevation forests of the Pacific Northwest, a new study suggests. However, forests at lower elevations "“ which in recent years have accounted for more than 80 percent of the region's timber harvest "“ could face a decline in growth. The potential changes, which are based on the projections of computer models, would be most pronounced in Washington. In that state, high-elevation...

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...
