- Soil Organic Carbon Sequestration Rates Under Question As New Methods Give Different Estimates
- Apr 19, 2014 16:05 PM E
- Studies measuring the amount of carbon captured organically by soil, known as soil sequestration may have been misleading. Scientists have now developed a more accurate definition for the process.
- Solar Power For When The Sun Doesn't Shine: New Material Uses Chemical Method To Store Sun's Energy
- Apr 19, 2014 16:00 PM E
- Solar energy can be absorbed and stored in chemical form, then triggered for on-demand power with a new material discovered by researchers at MIT and Harvard.
- Cows’ Burps and Farts Can Make Methane Gas To Make A Car Run (And Not Just Away)
- Apr 18, 2014 08:43 AM E
- Argentina, a country rich in cows, is hoping the methane gas they produce can be redirected into bio-fuels to power a car, and maybe even entire villages.
- Ice Ages Study Uses Ancient Plankton To Determine Temperature And Sea Level Over 5.3 Million Years
- Apr 16, 2014 13:06 PM E
- Scientists have used to ancient plankton to determine that cold temperatures preceded the onset of massive ice sheets when the current ice age began more than 2 million years ago.
- The Amazon Rainforest Is Burning: Drought-Related Fire Sharply Increases Tree Deaths
- Apr 14, 2014 15:41 PM E
- Climate change will lead to longer dry seasons in the Amazon, which leads to more fires. Woods Hole researchers say the rainforest will become even more flammable in the future.
- Global Warming Isn't Natural: To Remaining Climate Change Skeptics, This Study 'Will Be A Blow'
- Apr 11, 2014 14:44 PM E
- A physicist at McGill University says his new probability analysis of historic temperatures puts the odds that humans didn't cause climate change at less than 1 percent.
- Scientists Turn Carbon Monoxide Into Ethanol: Could CO2 Be The Next Clean Energy Source?
- Apr 10, 2014 09:26 AM E
- Chemists at Stanford University have discovered a more efficient method of turning carbon monoxide into ethanol, a major source of U.S. energy.
- Air Pollution Underestimated For A Decade Due to Escaped Vapors Hiding Behind Lab Walls
- Apr 07, 2014 15:47 PM E
- For 10 years, chemical engineers have been underestimating the presence in the atmosphere of toluene, a volatile chemical that is emitted by auto exhaust. A testing flaw is the culprit.
- Arid Lands May Help Stave Off Excess Carbon Emissions
- Apr 06, 2014 14:18 PM E
- Though most people might look to the rain forests and other green areas to help with absorbing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, a new study finds that arid areas also help — a lot.
