Latest Greenhouse gases Stories
About 71-million-years ago, turtles disappeared from Alberta's Drumheller area, and scientists have been blaming dramatic climate change as the culprit. Now, a new theory published in the journal Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology suggests the real reason was because of habitat changes.
Researchers on board the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program's research vessel JOIDES Resolution drilled a water depth of 1.5 miles and hundreds of feet of sediment into the oceanic crust off the west coast of North America. Scientists studying these returned samples have found the first direct evidence of life deep within these samples.
After more than 10 years' work, scientists at the University of Granada have a developed a carbon gel that enables CO2 to be turned into hydrocarbons by electro-catalytic transformation.
Scientists in Australia have developed a way to absorb carbon dioxide emissions and safely release them using natural sunlight.
Emissions from coal power stations could be drastically reduced by a new, energy-efficient material that adsorbs large amounts of carbon dioxide, then releases it when exposed to sunlight.
A new study indicates that yearly variations in climate can cause the amount of carbon dioxide absorbed and released by rainforests – the Earth's "lungs" – to vary considerably.
After studying sea urchins, two scientists have found a nickel catalyst that could be implemented to rapidly and cheaply capture carbon emissions.
It is a well-known fact that cattle produce carbon dioxide and methane throughout their lives. A new study, however, pinpoints the cow-calf stage as a major contributor of greenhouse gases during beef production.
According to Southern Methodist University paleontologists Timothy S. Myers, Louis L. Jacobs, and SMU sedimentary geologist Neil J. Tabor, the modern relationship between animals and vegetation is similar to millions of years ago.
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...
