Andrew Hoffman, the Holcim (US) Professor of Sustainable Enterprise at the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business and School of Natural Resources and Environment, talks about how the world's largest corporations ...
Scientists have been significantly overestimating the amount of carbon stored in the world's tropical forests, a new study reports.
Growing agricultural crops on organic (peat) soils is not good for the climate. When organic soils are drained and cultivated the organic matter in the soil will decompose which leads to emissions of greenhouse gases. This ...
Computer calculations indicate the best places to look for nanowire catalysts to accelerate green reactions
A*STAR scientists have created a 'prospector's guide' to help researchers locate the best germanium–silicon nanowires for catalyzing important clean-energy reactions.
New projections of permafrost change in northern Alaska suggest far-reaching effects will come sooner than expected, scientists reported this week at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union.
An inexpensive metal insert for primitive cookstoves created by a University of Iowa researcher may decrease global warming and potentially save the lives of thousands of women and children.
In search of ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, engineers are investigating the feasibility of sequestering carbon dioxide in saltwater aquifers deep underground. New Penn State research suggests that cracks in abandoned ...
The world is about to go on a carbon diet. It won't be easy—or cheap.
Climate scientists Saturday welcomed a pact to battle global warming as a major political advance, but warned of a gaping hole—the lack of a detailed roadmap for cutting greenhouse gases that cause the problem.
Nearly 200 nations adopted the first global pact to fight climate change on Saturday, calling on the world to collectively cut and then eliminate greenhouse gas pollution but imposing no sanctions on countries that don't.
