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...

Forest Ecosystems Keep The Earth From Cooking
2013-10-17 04:10:12

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to a new study led by Princeton University, enhanced growth of the Earth's plants during the 20th century has caused a significant slowdown of the Earth's transition to being "red-hot." This study, the first to specify the extent to which plants have prevented climate change since pre-industrial times, found that land ecosystems have kept the planet cooler by absorbing billions of tons of carbon, especially during the past 60...

Carbon Capture Monitoring With Cosmic Rays
2013-09-15 04:27:27

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers from Durham University in the UK are looking towards the stars for a method to reduce costs associated with carbon capture and storage (CCS) – a process that could potentially mitigate contribution of fossil fuel emissions to global warming and ocean acidification. According to BBC News science reporter Simon Redfern, CCS involves capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from fuel as it is burned at a power station. That CO2...
