Carbon capture technology may be essential in helping the world in the fight against climate change. By fitting fossil fuel power stations and industrial emitters with carbon capture technology, it is possible to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions by over 90%. Continue reading
The Energy Transitions Commission (ETC), a coalition of more than 45 leaders from global energy producers, energy industries, financial institutions and environmental advocates – including ArcelorMittal, Bank of America, BP, Development Research Center of the State Council of China, EBRD, HSBC, Iberdrola, Ørsted, Shell, Tata Group, Volvo Group and the World Resources Institute among others – released two new reports analysing the feasibility of achieving a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) economy by 2050 Continue reading
Johns Hopkins University researchers have expressed concern after finding a major increase in the world’s population of plankton, citing rising carbon dioxide levels as a potential cause.
NASA scientists use a new satellite to track rising carbon dioxide levels and urge policy leaders to reduce emissions ahead of the Paris climate summit.
SOUTHAMPTON, ENGLAND, UK (REUTERS) – Marine scientists call it the ocean’s ‘twilight zone’, where only a small amount of sunlight can penetrate.
But it’s the ocean life here – between 100 and 1000 metres deep – that scientists say is crucial for keeping atmospheric carbon-dioxide (CO2) levels 30 percent lower than it otherwise would be.
Scientists from the Tara Ocean expedition unveil the most comprehensive analysis ever undertaken of the world’s ocean plankton, the tiny organisms that serve as food for marine creatures such as the blue whale, but also provide half the oxygen we breathe.
UK (Next Media) – Recent research conducted by the University of Southampton and published in Nature magazine suggests that carbon dioxide released from the ocean played a large role in ending the most recent ice age.
