Environment  (tags: Bedrock, Nitrogen, carbon dioxide, atmosphere )

- 2478 days ago -
For the first time, researchers at the University of California, Davis, have demonstrated that forest trees have the ability to tap into nitrogen found in rocks, boosting the trees' growth and their ability to pull more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Carbon Release to Atmosphere 10 Times Faster Than in the Past, Geologists Find
Environment  (tags: Carbon, Atmosphere, co2, Geology, environment )

- 2570 days ago -
The rate of release of carbon into the atmosphere today is nearly 10 times as fast as during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM), 55.9 million years ago, the best analog we have for current global warming, according to an international team of....

New research indicates that the interactions of microscopic organisms around a particular organic material may alter the chemical properties of the ocean and ultimately influence global climate by affecting cloud formation in the atmosphere.
Whaling Worsens Carbon Release, Scientists Warn
Environment  (tags: wildlife, whaling, whales, CO2emissions, atmosphere, environment, climatechange, globalwarming )

- 3033 days ago -
A century of whaling may have released more than 100 million tonnes - or a large forest's worth - of carbon into the atmosphere, scientists say. Whales store carbon within their huge bodies and when they are killed, much of this carbon can be released
