Exploding whipped cream dispenser kills fitness blogger

An Instagram star and well-known fitness blogger has died in a freak accident after a pressurised cannister used for dispensing whipped cream exploded, hitting her in the chest, her family has said.

New system produces fuel from carbon dioxide

Scientists have developed a plant that uses carbon dioxide in the air to produce renewable fuels and chemicals, an advance that could help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reliance on fossil fuels.

A world first - This giant machine sucks CO2 directly from air

A world first - This giant machine sucks CO2 directly from air

Developers say the Climeworks AG facility opened near Zurich last week can capture about 900 tons of CO2 from the air each year.

Delivering packages with drones may reduce carbon dioxide emissions

Delivering packages with drones may reduce carbon dioxide emissions

The study said that drones tend to have carbon dioxide emissions advantage over trucks when the drones do not have to fly very far to their destinations or when a delivery route has few recipients.

CO2 levels on Earth cross 410 ppm for the first time in history! - Is climate change winning?

CO2 levels on Earth cross 410 ppm for the first time in history! - Is climate change winning?

The first time the observatory recorded CO2 levels passing 400 ppm was back in 2013. Since then, 400 ppm is considered the new normal.

India's carbon emissions increased by over 5% in 2015: Study

India's carbon emissions increased by over 5% in 2015: Study

India contributed 6.3 per cent of all global CO2 emissions, with emissions increasing 5.2 per cent, in 2015 continuing a period of strong growth, according to researchers at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in the UK and the Global Carbon Project.

Global carbon emissions remain flat for third year

The researchers said that carbon emissions did not grow last year and the projected rise of only 0.2 per cent for 2016 marks a clear break from the rapid emissions growth of 2.3 per cent per year in the decade to 2013, with just 0.7 per cent growth seen in 2014.
