The results are intriguing, but analysing the atmospheres of exoplanets is no easy task.
Pretty much every kitchen can double as a chemistry set.
Ever wonder how soda manufacturers get the bubbles and fizz inside the can? A chemist explains some of the science behind the carbonation process. Hint − it involves carbon.
Can planting trees help us solve the climate crisis? Probably, but to what extent?
Most of the carbon disturbed by trawls is unreactive and difficult to convert to CO₂.
A longer growing season for trees, due to global warming, does not necessarily lead to an increase in wood production.
We want good news on climate change. But whales storing enough carbon needs more evidence.
After the Supreme Court overturned the Obama administration’s strategy for reducing power plant carbon emissions in 2022, the Biden administration is taking a narrower but still ambitious approach.
Carbon capture and storage could keep fossil fuel power plants running under newly proposed federal emissions standards, but it faces high hurdles.
Rising temperatures mean longer, earlier pollen seasons, but a bigger problem is what more carbon dioxide will do to the amount of pollen being released.
Working with underwater robots, scientists show how deep sea mountains and fast currents between Antarctica and South America play a crucial role in stabilizing the climate.
CCS remains a ‘handy excuse’ for extracting more fossil fuels, our review indicates.
Climate models embed colonial attitudes and massive inequality.
Labor must resist the false promise of carbon offsets in its safeguard mechanism. The only thing that matters is actually cutting emissions
New Zealand is considering a plan to tax methane from cows. But while cows and cars both emit greenhouse gases, they don’t have the same impact over time.
Air pollution causes chess players to make more errors – this may have implications for high-skilled professionals.
The ocean twilight zone could store vast amounts of carbon captured from the atmosphere, but first we need a 4D monitoring system to ensure ramping up carbon storage does no harm.
It’s far easier to see how the stock market is doing than it is to find out the global price of carbon. That has to change.
New practices aim to improve soil health, return more carbon to soil and reduce greenhouse gas losses.
Stopping the expansion of offshore oil and gas extraction is a critical but often overlooked step towards achieving global climate targets and protecting our oceans and planet.
