Brushing aside apprehensions about India's growing energy consumption, researchers have found that improving household electricity over the last 30 years in India contributed only marginally to the growth of the nation's total carbon emissions.
In what could help global policy makers to easily reach an agreement on strategies to reduce green house gas emissions, researchers have developed a new approach to reliably estimate carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from burning fossil fuels.
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.
