Nuclear Power Endorsed By Scientists To Reduce Greenhouse Emissions
2013-11-04 03:43:17

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Wind and solar energy alone will not be enough to prevent severe global warming – in order to adequately reduce fossil fuel emissions, clean nuclear power plants will be required, some of the planet’s top climate scientists wrote in an open letter sent to leading environmental organizations on Sunday. According to the Associated Press (AP), the letter claims that global temperatures and carbon dioxide emissions are rising...

Atmospheric Cooling Could Be Result Of Oceanic Heat Absorption
2013-11-01 08:41:05

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The apparent stabilization of atmospheric temperatures over the past decade -- often cited by climate change skeptics as evidence that global warming has slowed down or stopped -- is actually caused by a radical increase in the amount of heat being absorbed by the oceans, according to a new study. Yair Rosenthal, a climate scientist at Rutgers University, and colleagues report that the ocean is now absorbing heat 15 times faster...

Vital Precipitation Could Be Lost Through Climate Geoengineering

[ Watch the Video: Monsoonal Rains Could Shrink Due To Geoengineering ] April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study, led by scientists from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), shows that although a significant build-up in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere would alter worldwide precipitation patterns, a widely discussed technological approach to reduce future global warming would also interfere with rainfall and snowfall. The findings, published...

Although a significant build-up in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere would alter worldwide precipitation patterns, geoengineering would also interfere with rainfall and snowfall. An international study, led by NCAR scientists, finds that “geoengineering” could result in monsoonal rains in North America, East Asia, and other regions dropping by 5-7 percent compared to preindustrial conditions because of less evaporation and reduced plant emissions of water. Boulder, CO (PRWEB) October...

Global Warming To Impact The Tropics Sooner Than You Think
2013-10-10 04:21:21

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Unless greenhouse gas emissions are stabilized, the average location on Earth will experience a radically different climate by the year 2047, experts from the University of Hawaii, Manoa claim in research published in Thursday’s edition of the journal Nature. In the study, lead author Camilo Mora and colleagues from the university’s Department of Geography report that ecological and societal disruptions by modern global...

"Carbon pollution from burning fossil fuels is changing our climate and transforming our world. From more destructive and more frequent climate-related extreme weather events and rising sea levels, to climate refugees, crop failure and water scarcity, the consequences are profound. Last Hours expertly explains how we got here, and what will happen if we don't work together to stop it. It is a needed and urgent call to action." --Al Gore, Chairman, The Climate Reality Project...

Researchers Demonstrate Effective Recycling Of Radicals During Isoprene Degradation
2013-10-07 07:02:51

Forschungszentrum Juelich Hydroxyl (OH) radicals – known as the detergent of the atmosphere – decompose isoprene in the air. This leads to the creation of new OH radicals, which are then able to purify the air of other pollutants and trace gases. The scientific community had previously only been able to speculate about this mechanism. The atmosphere has an astonishing ability to cleanse itself. Chemical processes ensure that trace gases and pollutants are removed from the atmosphere...

Earth's Atmosphere
2004-10-19 04:45:44

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...
