Researchers at New Zealand's University of Otago are helping to clear up an enduring mystery regarding the composition of the Earth's atmosphere.
Independent study for EDF reveals ample opportunity for industry to use existing, affordable technologies to control emissions from onshore operations WASHINGTON, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/
Friends of Science dispute Secretary of State John Kerry’s claims that Indonesia is at risk from human-caused climate change and debunk the notion that carbon is pollution, noting that carbon
Livestock production is responsible for 12% of human-related greenhouse gas emissions, primarily coming from land use change and deforestation caused by expansion of agriculture, as well as methane released by the animals themselves, with a lesser amount coming from manure management and feed production.
Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory report they have found that volcanic eruptions in the early part of the 21st century have cooled the planet.

A proposed mitigation technique which involves spewing sulfur particles into the atmosphere could help combat climate change – but if stopped after being implemented, it could worsen the problem, University of Washington researchers warn.
FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cemtrex, Inc.
As a range of climate change mitigation scenarios are discussed, University of Washington researchers have found that the injection of sulfate particles into the atmosphere to reflect sunlight and curb the effects of global warming could pose a severe threat if not maintained indefinitely and supported by strict reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Earth's Atmosphere -- Earth's atmosphere consists of nitrogen (78.1%) and oxygen (20.9%), with small amounts of argon (0.9%), carbon dioxide (variable, but around 0.035%), water vapor, and other gases. The atmosphere protects life on Earth by absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation and reducing temperature extremes between day and night. 75% of the atmosphere exists within 11km of the planetary surface. Temperature and the Atmospheric Layers The temperature of the Earth's atmosphere...
Terraforming -- Terraforming (literally, "Earth-shaping") is the process of modifying a planet, moon or other body to a more habitable atmosphere, temperature or ecology. The term was first used in a science fiction novel, 'Seetee Shock' (1940?) by Jack Williamson, but the actual concept is older than that. An example in fiction is 'First and Last Men' by Olaf Stapledon in which Venus is modified, after a long and destructive war with the original inhabitants, who naturally object to the...
