 So far, half of all all carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels and other sources are getting absorbed by the land plants and ocean.

Greenhouse gas concentrations hit record high

The amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere hit a new record high in 2014, according to a new report released by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) on Monday.

Climate change moving world into 'unchartered territory': UN

Concentrations of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere hit a new high in 2014, the UN said today, warning the resulting climate change was moving the world into "unchartered territory".

Made in China goods bad for environment: Study
Made in China goods bad for environment: Study

 Products made in China may cost you less but they are associated with significantly higher carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions than the same products made elsewhere, claims new research.

Tiny motors can tackle rising carbon dioxide levels

 Nanoengineers, including one of Indian-origin, have designed tiny machines - smaller than the width of a human hair - that rapidly zoom around in water, remove carbon dioxide and convert it into a usable solid form.
