New carbon dioxide emissions model

With the help of new models for a prescribed atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration, scientists from all over Europe have now calculated for the first time the extent to which the global carbon dioxide emissions must be reduced to halt...

U.S. response to climate change

A comprehensive national response to climate change should be informed by reliable data coordinated through climate services and a greenhouse gas monitoring and management system to provide timely information tailored to decision makers at...

The Healing Effects of Forests

Forests - and other natural, green settings - can reduce stress, improve moods, reduce anger and aggressiveness and increase overall...

Unaccounted ecosystem feedbacks may increase warming

Projections of future climate changes already account for "carbon-climate feedbacks", which means that more CO2 is released from soils in a...

Key to tropical biodiversity

The tropics owe their stunning biodiversity to consistent year-round temperatures, not higher temperatures or more sunlight, according to a novel survey of insect diversity at different latitudes and at different points in the planet's...

Switchgrass as a Biofuel Crop

Researchers used peer-reviewed publications to evaluate switchgrass yield as it relates to site location, plot size, stand age, harvest frequency, fertilizer application, climate, and land quality.

New wooly mammoth extinction speculation

The extinction of woolly mammoths and other large mammals more than 10,000 years ago may be explained by the same type of cascade of ecosystem disruption that is being caused today by the global decline of predators.

Oil spills raise arsenic levels in the ocean

Oil spills can increase levels of toxic arsenic in the ocean, creating an additional long-term threat to the marine ecosystem, according to research published today in the journal Water Research.

Utility of floating wind turbines

Wind turbines may be one of the best renewable energy solutions, but as turbines get larger they also get noisier, become more of an eyesore, and require increasingly larger expanses of land.

Climate change doubters found wanting

The small number of scientists who are unconvinced that human beings have contributed significantly to climate change have far less expertise and prominence in climate research compared with scientists who are convinced, according to a...

Biodiversity's holy grail is in the soil

Why are tropical forests so biologically rich? Smithsonian researchers have new evidence that the answer to one of life's great unsolved mysteries lies underground, according to a study.

Mercury more dangerous in oceans

Even though freshwater concentrations of mercury are far greater than those found in seawater, it's the saltwater fish like tuna, mackerel...

Carbon sequestration

The idea to sequester carbon is gaining support as a way to avoid global warming. For example, the European Union plans to invest billions of Euros within the next ten years to develop carbon capture and storage.

Enzyme Trio for Biosynthesis of Hydrocarbon Fuels

If concerns for global climate change and ever-increasing costs weren't enough, the disastrous Gulf oil spill makes an even more compelling case for the development of transportation fuels that are renewable, can be produced in a...

Environmental scandal in Chile

Until recently, the disastrous scale of the threat posed by salmon farms to the fauna and National Park of the Aysen region of southern Chile was entirely unknown. The unexpected discovery was made by researchers studying acoustic...

CO2 levels explain temperature fluctuations

Increasingly, the Earth's climate appears to be more connected than anyone would have imagined. El Niño can spawn heat waves and droughts as far away as Africa.
