For the first time ever, scientists have discovered direct evidence of the rate at which individual trees in the Amazon rainforest "inhale" carbon from the atmosphere during a severe drought.
We're getting a new look at ocean acidification--from space. Researchers have used satellites to monitor ocean acidification, and have been able to see the impacts on large swatches of inaccessible ocean from orbit.
Cattle are often viewed as a detriment when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions. But could beef production actually help capture and store carbon? Scientists may have found a way to use beef production to help restore ecosystems.
Scientists may have created a new class of materials that could remove greenhouse gas from power-plant emissions. The new materials could be huge in terms of carbon capture and sequestration.
Scientists have found that carbon accumulation levels in the southeastern U.S. may be slowing due to forest dynamics and land use changes.
Could asphalt actually provide a new technique for "green" carbon capture? Scientists have found that the best material to keep carbon dioxide from natural gas wells from fouling the atmosphere may be a derivative of asphalt.
There may be some good news for tropical forests. Scientists have found that these forests may be absorbing far more carbon dioxide than thought in response to rising atmospheric levels of the greenhouse gas.
It turns out that human-made carbon dioxide in the atmosphere may just release the world's massive store of carbon.
It turns out that it takes just a decade for a single emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) to have its maximum warming effect on the Earth. The findings have major implications for future warming as human-created CO2 emissions continue to be released.
It turns out that our world could be altered by the so-called "Green Revolution." Scientists have found that the intense farming practices used are powerful enough to alter Earth's atmosphere at an ever-increasing rate.
Scientists have gotten an all new view of carbon dioxide. An ultra-high-resolution NASA computer models reveals how carbon dioxide in the atmosphere travels around the globe.
Climate change isn't just heating things up. It's also causing the world's oceans to acidify. Now, a team of scientists has published the most comprehensive picture yet of how acidity levels vary across the world's oceans, revealing how humans impact their environment.
