The M16 series can be divided into to two individual series----M16GU5.3 and M16GU10, which contains a set of variety of models respectively. These series are designed with low power and high efficiency, and the heat emitted is low consequently. (PRWEB) July 20, 2012 There are many factors causing the global warming, such as population explosion, the air pollution caused by extensively using coals to emit the carbon dioxide, sharp reduction of forestry source, poisonous waste pollution and...

A climate model accounting for the carbon dioxide (CO2) released into our atmosphere before the industrial revolution has been used to show the detrimental effect of carbon emissions on global temperature in the long-term. In a study published today, 4 July, in IOP Publishing's journal Environmental Research Letters, researchers from the Carnegie Institution for Science have shown that pre-industrial emissions from land use changes are responsible for about nine per cent of the increase in...

When evaluating the historic contributions made by different countries to the greenhouse gasses found in Earth's atmosphere, calculations generally go back no further than the year 1840. New research from Carnegie's Julia Pongratz and Ken Caldeira shows that carbon dioxide contributions from the pre-industrial era still have an impact on our climate today. Their work is published in Environmental Research Letters. The burning of fossil fuels that came with industrialization released...
