Forests “Flatline” On Trapping Carbon Dioxide With Temperature Rise, Study Shows
2013-12-18 18:23:11

Ranjini Raghunath for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online A four-degree-Celsius rise in the Earth’s surface temperature could max out the amount of carbon dioxide that forests can trap from the atmosphere, according to new research by a team of European researchers. Rainforests, such as the Amazon, act as natural carbon “sinks,” using up and storing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air to make food. While humans continue to pump CO2 into the atmosphere, these sinks help maintain a...

Texas Tremors Likely Triggered By Gas Injection Processes: Study
2013-11-05 09:17:43

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A newly published study has confirmed a series of small earthquakes that shook the west Texas town of Snyder can be blamed on a production process in the oil fields. In 2004 workers at the Cogdell Oil Field began injecting their wells with carbon dioxide as a way to increase production, a method that researchers now say was responsible for a spate of earthquakes that shook the area between 2006 and 2011. This is not the first...
