Pink salmon may be more affected by ocean acidification than other species. Researchers have found that salmon that being life in freshwater with high concentrations are carbon dioxide are smaller and may be less likely to survive.
Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a report quantifying the vast economic, health, and environmental benefits that reducing global carbon pollution will have on the United States.
Ocean acidification is going to be a huge issue in the future. Scientists have found that surface waters of the Chukchi and Beaufort seas in the Arctic could reach levels of acidity that threaten the ability of animals to build and maintain their shells by 2030.
There are new calculations that may improve our ability to "see" CO2 from space.
As more and more carbon is released into the atmosphere, temperatures heat up. Now, though, scientists have warned that cutting these emissions may have indirect effects on the world's food supply.
Many have pointed to peatlands as a ticking time bomb for global warming. New research, though, may hint otherwise.
While tropical rainforests store vast amounts of carbon and can help prevent climate change, it turns out there's another ecosystem may also play a huge role.
Scientists have found that increased CO2 actually increases the water-use efficiency of European broadleaf and coniferous trees.
Carbon dioxide concentrations are skyrocketing. Scientists have found that for the first time since tracking, monthly global average concentrations of this greenhouse gas has surpassed 400 parts per million in March 2015.
It turns out that fjords may play more of a role in the carbon cycle than once expected. Scientists have found that fjords in Norway and around the world suck up millions of tons of carbon each year.
It turns out that the gases used to knock out surgery patients may just be impacting the Earth's atmosphere.
