Carbon Dioxide is a greenhouse gas that acts like blanket around the earth trapping heat inside our atmosphere. The burning of fossil fuels produce CO2 which speeds up the process of the greenhouse effect. The average global temperature is rising and...
7,000 Huge Gas Bubbles Have Formed Under Siberia and Could Explode at Any Moment
Environment  (tags: Siberia, sinkholes, methane gas, carbon dioxide, environmental researchers, explosions, gas bubbles, 7, 000 permafrost bubbles )

- 815 days ago -
In addition to leaving sinkholes, local environmental researchers found that the air escaping from these bulges contained up to 1,000 times more methane than the surrounding air and 25 times more carbon dioxide.

Please Sign: Tell CA to Cut Climate-Credit Incentives for Forest Destruction!
Environment  (tags: Old-growth forests, clear cutting, forest destruction, carbon credits for logging, cap and trade, California, incentivizing forest destruction, Carbon dioxide, climate change )

- 1897 days ago -
Older trees remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than newer ones. So why is California now giving companies carbon credits to clear cut old-growth forests? Logging companies should be punished - not rewarded - for forest destruction!
Bedrock Nitrogen May Help Forests Buffer Climate Change, Study Finds
Environment  (tags: Bedrock, Nitrogen, carbon dioxide, atmosphere )

- 2841 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.
Global Carbon Dioxide Emissions May Reach Record Levels in 2010
Environment  (tags: Carbon Dioxide, Emissions, global warming, world, environment )

- 3128 days ago -
Global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions -- the main contributor to global warming -- show no sign of abating and may reach record levels in 2010, according to a study led by the University of Exeter (UK).
Methane Leak From Arctic Shelf May Be Much Larger and Faster Than Anticipated
Environment  (tags: methane gas, carbon dioxide, ClimateChange )

Washington, March 5 (ANI): An international team of scientists has found that the permafrost under the East Siberian Arctic Shelf, long thought to be an impermeable barrier sealing in methane, is perforated and is starting to leak large amounts
New Method To Cleaner And More Efficient Carbon Dioxide Capture
Environment  (tags: environment, carbon dioxide, pollution, flue gas, Coal-Fired Plants, CO2emissions, destruction )

- 3613 days ago -
ScienceDaily (July 25, 2009) -- Separating carbon dioxide from its polluting source, such as the flue gas from a coal-fired power plant, may soon become cleaner and more efficient.
Project to 'Grow Carbon Sinks'
Environment  (tags: environment, Ghana, rainforest, logging, deforestation, seedlings, climate change, carbon dioxide, nature, carbon emissions, protection, conservation, destruction, prevention, endangered )

- 3627 days ago -
Ambitious plans to grow 24 million trees to soak up carbon dioxide and restore the rainforest have got underway in Ghana. The first million seedlings are being planted in a pilot scheme in an area that has been heavily logged in recent years.
A Ticking Time Bomb in the Arctic?
Environment  (tags: greenhousegases, Arctic, carbon dioxide, environment, wildlife, habitat, animals )

- 3780 days ago -
Climate scientists fear that massive levels of a greenhouse gas with 20 times the heat-trapping power of carbon dioxide could be released into the atmosphere from the thawing Arctic Ocean.
Rhus Radicans and Global Warming: The Species That Flourishes
Environment  (tags: poison ivy, poison oak, global warming, carbon dioxide, envrionment, plant growth )

- 3950 days ago -
Unfortunately, rhus radicans is the taxonomic moniker of poison ivy and also sometimes applied to poison oak. Global warming is an environmental disaster for most living organisms, but poison ivy LOVES the carbon dioxide-rich atmosphere.
Climate Target Is Not Radical Enough - Study - CommonDreams.Org
Environment  (tags: climate, carbon dioxide, EU, science, globalwarming )

- 4086 days ago -
One of the world's leading climate scientists warns today that the EU and its international partners must urgently rethink targets for cutting carbon dioxide in the atmosphere because of fears they have grossly underestimated the scale of the problem.
Bush to Skip U.N. Talks on Global Warming
Environment  (tags: Climate Change, global warming, carbon dioxide, UN )

Dozens of world leaders are to gather at the United Nations on Monday for a full agenda of talks on how to fight global warming, and President Bush is skipping all the day's events but the dinner.
Climate Change May Not Encourage Tree Growth
Environment  (tags: globalwarming, ClimateChange, forests, trees, growth decline, carbon dioxide )

- 4446 days ago -
A glimmer of hope in the grim global warming picture has been scientists' predictions that some carbon dioxide will be removed from the atmosphere by a burst of growth from tropical forests. But new research from Harvard's Arnold Arboretum questions ...
