Carbon release from oceans leads to climate change
Carbon release from oceans leads to climate change

Giving a fresh insight into how oceans affect climate change, a new study shows that carbon stored in deep in the Southern Ocean, re-connected with the atmosphere, drives a rise in atmospheric CO2 and climate change.

New material found for producing cheaper solar energy

Researchers have recently found a new way to make clean energy that will be more cost efficient, it has been reported.

'Natural gas usage won't help curb CO2 emission'
'Natural gas usage won't help curb CO2 emission'

Increased use of natural gas will not help arrest carbon dioxide (CO2) emission significantly because it delays the widespread construction of low-carbon energy facilities, such as solar arrays, says a US-based study.

Internet spews out 830 million tonnes of CO2

Internet, video and other cloud services, which comprise information communications and technology (ICT) industry, spews out more than 830 million tonnes of carbon dioxide annually, researchers found.

Palm trees could grow in Antarctic if climate change persists

Palm trees, usually found in hot climatic conditions, could grow in the Antarctic within a few hundred years if climate change continues, researchers said.

World has five years to avoid severe warming: IEA

The world has just five years to avoid being trapped in a scenario of perilous climate change and extreme weather events, the International Energy Agency (IEA) warned on Wednesday.

Fossil fuel CO2 emissions have increased 3 times in the last decade

In a new report, scientists have painted a bleak picture of the Earth’s future, by revealing that the annual rate of increase in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fuels has more than tripled in this decade.

Global CO2 emissions to drop 2.8% in `09: Report

Global carbon dioxide emissions are set to fall an estimated 2.8 percent this year because of the financial crisis, after having risen two percent in 2008, a leading annual report on the globe`s "carbon budget" says.
