10 Arguments Climate Change Deniers Need to Stop Making

While the United States is catching on to climate change, so much so that roughly 66% of Americans acknowledged global warming by 2013, according...

The Importance of Icebergs in Nature-Driven Carbon Sequestration Proven by Scientists

Maybe one of the most important studies showing how the melting of icebergs affects global warming and how these icebergs help the algae sequester carbon dioxide has been published by marine biologist Ken Smith. The research was funded by the National Science Foundation and published in the electronic issue of Deep Sea Research Part II: Topical Studies in Oceanography.

Carbon Sequestration Project Uses Water to Turn CO2 into Rocks

CarbFix, a project conducted by US and Icelandic researchers, has developed a new approach to carbon sequestration and storage that could completely remove it from the...

Olivine, the Mineral That Could Fight Climate Change

Discovering the ultimate technique for sequestrating carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, has become the main aim of numerous scientific teams. First, there were the...

Extinction of Australian Megafauna due to Humans, not Climate Change

The organic waste of an astonishing creature from Australia that was extinct 45,000 years ago, revealed the extinction's primary reason as humans and not...

Antarctica’s Ice Cover Thickens Due to Climate Change, Affects Sea Level Rise

Scientists explain why sea ice around Antarctica is becoming thicker despite the rise in global temperatures in a new study published in the latest issue...

Water Evaporation From Plants Helps Cool Down The Climate, Study Demonstrates

A team from the Carnegie Global Ecology department have recently concluded that water evaporation on Earth actually cools down the atmosphere and fights global...

The Power of the Albedo Effect on Global Warming

Albedo is the percentage of incoming radiation reflected off a surface. The term comes from the Latin word for whiteness. When applied to the...

Fat People Account for Gasoline Price Increases and Bigger Carbon Footprint, Study Says

A study of the Resources for the Future (RFF) institute from a few years ago (2009, more exactly) revealed the impact that obesity has on a man's carbon footprint. It showed that even a 10 percent increase in the rate of overweight and obesity among the population affected the miles per gallon by 2.5%, in the bad direction. This, in turn, created a 30 cent increase in gasoline prices.

Positive Effect of Increased Atmospheric CO2: More Green Desert Plants

The increasing concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has not only bad effects for the environment. A new study based on satellite data...
