Ocean acidification a culprit in commercial shellfish hatcheries' failures
The mortality of larval Pacific oysters in Northwest hatcheries has been linked to ocean acidification. Yet the rate of increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and the decrease of pH in near-shore waters ...
Cheap asphalt provides 'green' carbon capture
(Phys.org)—The best material to keep carbon dioxide from natural gas wells from fouling the atmosphere may be a derivative of asphalt, according to Rice University scientists.
Viruses take down massive algal blooms, with big implications for climate
Algae might seem easy to ignore, but they are the ultimate source of all organic matter that marine animals depend upon. Humans are increasingly dependent on algae, too, to suck up climate-warming carbon ...
World falling far behind on two-degree climate goal
The world is falling far behind in its bid to curb greenhouse emissions enough to limit global warming to 2C, according to two new reports.
New satellite technology shows Amazon absorbing less carbon due to less rainfall
Plant-e makes street lights come alive from living plants
Hard facts lead to 'green' concrete
The international team of scientists has created computational models to help concrete manufacturers fine-tune mixes for general applications.
Alaska shows no signs of rising Arctic methane
Despite large temperature increases in Alaska in recent decades, a new analysis of NASA airborne data finds that methane is not being released from Alaskan soils into the atmosphere at unusually high rates, ...
Exxon sees abundant oil, gas far into future
North America, once a sponge that sucked in a significant portion of the world's oil, will instead be supplying the world with oil and other liquid hydrocarbons by the end of this decade, according to ExxonMobil's ...
Study shows rising ocean acidification likely to cause shrimp to taste bad
Study: Farmers and scientists divided over climate change
Crop producers and scientists hold deeply different views on climate change and its possible causes, a study by Purdue and Iowa State universities shows.
Researchers discover new method to convert CO2 to a valuable organic compound
Louisiana State University researchers are contributing to ongoing work aimed at reducing the amount of carbon dioxide released in the environment. The research team, led by Andrew Maverick, Philip & Foymae ...
Violent eruptions in Mercury's past could hold clues to its formation
Volcanoes on Mercury may have been more explosive than previously anticipated, and they may have erupted more recently, as well.
A global natural gas boom alone won't slow climate change
A new analysis of global energy use, economics and the climate shows that without new climate policies, expanding the current bounty of inexpensive natural gas alone would not slow the growth of global greenhouse ...
