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.

CO2 in oceans sets off an ice age every 100,000 years

CO2 in oceans sets off an ice age every 100,000 years

According to the study published in the journal Geology, oceans sucking carbon dioxide (CO2) out of the atmosphere may have triggered this phenomena.

CO2 from thin air converted directly into clean-burning fuel

CO2 from thin air converted directly into clean-burning fuel

 In a first, researchers including one of Indian origin have directly converted carbon dioxide from thin air into methanol fuel - a discovery that can create a sustainable fuel source from greenhouse gas emissions in the near future.

Small ponds emit large amount of greenhouse gases

Ponds play an important role in the carbon cycle as gases produced at the bottom of small ponds are able to reach the top more often than what occurs in larger lakes, due to greater water mixing and shallower waters.  

Global plant growth not keeping pace with CO2 emissions

Global plant growth not keeping pace with CO2 emissions

The study found that global plant growth has indeed increased over the past 30 years, but not as much as expected given the change in atmospheric CO2 concentrations.
