The sea assists in keeping wolfing down a colossal quantity of CO2 from the air, however will it remaining?

The ocean has proved to be an exceptionally selfless and dependable planetary companion.  With no benefit to itself, Earth’s vast sea has gulped up around 30 percent of the carbon dioxide humans emitted into Earth’s atmosphere over the last century. Critically, scientists have now confirmed that the ocean in recent decades has continued its steadfast...CONTINUE READING

Trump’s local weather skilled is flawed: The arena’s vegetation don’t want extra CO2

Plants on Earth have flourished for hundreds of millions of years, yet President Donald Trump’s pick to lead his new climate team insists that they need more carbon dioxide to thrive. Princeton physicist and carbon dioxide-advocate William Happer has been selected to head the brand new Presidential Committee on Climate Security, reports The Washington Post....CONTINUE READING

Wager what? U.S. carbon emissions popped again up in a large manner

For three straight years, carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S. dropped. But in 2018, emissions of the potent greenhouse gas shot back up.  A new report by the Rhodium Group — a research institution that analyzes global economic and environmental trends — found that in 2018 carbon dioxide emissions rose 3.4 percent from the prior...CONTINUE READING

This algae ‘curtain’ could make city buildings into urban trees — Sharp Science

Photo.Synth.Etica may look like an abstract art piece, but really it might be a glimpse into the future of smarter, greener cities. The “curtain” is made of modules that have algae which suck in carbon dioxide and other air pollutants, and then spit out some clean, clean oxygen. Check out our short video for more...CONTINUE READING

Earth’s carbon dioxide levels are likely the highest they’ve been in 15 million years

We’ve entered some profoundly unfamiliar planetary territory. Amid a backdrop of U.S. politicians still questioning whether the changing climate is attributable to humans (it is), it’s quite likely that we’ve actually boosted Earth’s carbon dioxide — a potent greenhouse gas — to the highest levels they’ve been in some 15 million years.  The number 15...CONTINUE READING

Climate deniers love to repeat this dead wrong talking point. Here’s how to refute it.

On Sunday morning, CNN anchor Jake Tapper asked U.S. Senator Marco Rubio whether he thought the changing climate on Earth today was “at least in part” caused by humans.  On live television, Rubio acknowledged that humans were partly responsible, and then immediately sowed some doubt into his answer. “I think many scientists would debate what...CONTINUE READING

Trapping carbon pollution underground for thousands of years is key to fighting climate change

Trapping carbon emissions deep within Earth’s crust may be a clever way to keep warming greenhouse gases from amassing in the planet’s atmosphere.  Giant wind turbines and solar-paneled roofs are almost certainly the energy future, but until the greater transition from burning fuels is complete, fuel-burning plants will continue to expel carbon into the air,...CONTINUE READING

Earth just soared past yet another climate change milestone

The Earth’s atmosphere is more saturated with greenhouse gases now than at any other time in human history. For the first time on record, the average amount of carbon dioxide — the main long-lived gas responsible for global warming — in the air passed 410 parts per million (ppm) for an entire month.  Data collected...CONTINUE READING

Acidifying oceans could hit the very base of the ocean’s food web

The bedrock of the ocean’s food chain, on which whales, sharks, and octopi ultimately rely, are tiny bits of photosynthetic algae called diatoms. They come in thousands of shapes and are imperceptible to the human eye.  If their populations collapse or shrink, there could be dramatic reverberations throughout the vast marine food web. Scientists have...CONTINUE READING

Europeans are cutting down U.S. forests for so-called 'sustainable' energy

European nations, including the UK, are making a grave accounting error that will result in the emissions of more planet-warming greenhouse gases, according to a new report from an independent London think tank.  By counting the burning of wood pellets from felled forests in the U.S., Canada and Russia as a “renewable” or “sustainable” form...CONTINUE READING
