India has asked the developed world to bear the "burden of the cross" for pumping carbon dioxide into the air for the past 150 years as a poor man in India cannot be told to pay more for a cleaner planet.
A new data by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has revealed that our planet Earth has exceeded the highest ever recorded level of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere surpassing 400 parts per million (ppm) in March, 2015.
During the week of April 6 to 12, average carbon dioxide (CO2) levels touched 404.02 parts per million (ppm), the highest-ever in recent human history - and 15 percdent above the levels of 350 ppm scientists say is ideal for Earth.
In a breakthrough in artificial photosynthesis, researchers have developed a new system that uses sunlight to convert waste carbon dioxide into valuable chemical products such as biodegradable plastics, pharmaceuticals, and even liquid fuels.
In a warning of how lethal increased carbon dioxide emission could be, researchers found the greatest extinction of all time that happened 252 million years ago was due to the huge amount of carbon dioxide the Earth's oceans absorbed from volcanic eruptions.
Anaesthetic gases may help doctors to cause temporary loss of sensation in patients and carry out surgery smoothly, but by accumulating in the Earth's atmosphere, they also contribute to climate change, says a new study.
