In an impetus for fuel cell technology to build "smart" cars, scientists at Stanford University have developed a low-cost, emissions-free device that uses an ordinary AAA battery to produce hydrogen by water electrolysis.
The vast mangrove forest in the Sunderbans is fast losing its capacity to absorb carbon dioxide, one of the main greenhouse gases, from the atmosphere due to rise in the salinity of water, rampant deforestation and pollution, a study has found.
In a path-breaking innovation, Royal College of Art graduate Julian Melchiorri developed the first man-made, biologically functional leaf that takes in carbon dioxide, water, and light and releases oxygen.
In a significant breakthrough, scientists have synthesised a catalyst that improves the system for converting waste carbon dioxide into syngas -- a precursor of gasoline and other energy-rich products.
A new study has revealed that a natural cooling fluctuation between 1998 and 2013 largely masked the warming effects of a continued increase in man-made emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.
The fast developing economies of India and China are adding to the emission of carbon dioxide, US President Barack Obama has said asking Americans to be ready and adopt more and more green technologies.
Nuclear power plants in the United States increasingly risk closure amid growing competition from cheap natural gas, which experts said could hamper President Barack Obama`s efforts to combat climate change.
As the name suggests, it is manly the amount of Carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted into the atmosphere including many gases that negatively influence the quality of the air subsequently increasing the greenhouse effect.
Semi-arid areas on the planet could become carbon sinks in the future despite the fact that they hold the carbon for a short period compared to tropical forests, according to a study in Australia published Thursday.
The rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide that comes with climate change poses serious threat. According to a new study it has been revealed that the rising CO2 can cut the nutritional quality of some of the world`s most important food crops.
