Tree trunks a source of methane? Scientists say yes!

Researchers measured the carbon dioxide and methane fluxes of the soil, tree trunks and CWD to determine whether those three components were sources or sinks of these greenhouse gases.

Change in diet may reduce cow methane release: Study

Change in diet may reduce cow methane release: Study

In a study at four sites in Mexico, researchers found cows that fed on grasses mixed with the leaves of delicate tropical leucaena trees belched about 36 per cent less methane than those on a straight grass diet.

It will also help advance the understanding of Earth’s natural exchanges of carbon between the land, atmosphere and ocean.

Historic paris climate pact enters into force

Historic paris climate pact enters into force

Dubbed the Paris Agreement, it is the first-ever deal binding all the world's nations, rich and poor, to a commitment to cap global warming caused mainly from the burning of coal, oil and gas.

Global deal reached to phase out super greenhouse gases

Global deal reached to phase out super greenhouse gases

In a major step toward curbing global warming, the world community agreed on Saturday to phase out a category of dangerous greenhouse gases widely used in refrigerators and air conditioners.

India, US reach consensus on phasing out super greenhouse gases

India, US reach consensus on phasing out super greenhouse gases

India and the US on Friday reached a consensus over bringing down the consumption of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) used in air-conditioners and refrigerators, said an Indian official.

HFC phaseout: India needs to seize the moment on climate change

HFC phaseout: India needs to seize the moment on climate change

Hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, were once crucial replacements for ozone-depleting coolants, but these one-time environmental saviours have become the fastest-growing heat-trapping pollutants.

Reservoirs produce 1.3% of all greenhouse gases generated by humans, says study!

Reservoirs produce 1.3% of all greenhouse gases generated by humans, says study!

The researchers acknowledge that reservoirs provide important services like electrical power, flood control, navigation and water.

Soil can lock away greenhouse gases, curb global warming

Soil can lock away greenhouse gases, curb global warming

Adopting the latest technologies and sustainable land use practices on a global scale could store more emissions in farmland and natural wild spaces, the study suggests.

Goal to reduce world temperatures likely to fail: Study

Goal to reduce world temperatures likely to fail: Study

The Paris Agreement's overall goal is to replace fossil fuels, which emit huge amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere which in turn leads to higher temperatures, with renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power and biofuels.

Humans responsible for record-breaking hot years since 1930s: Study

Humans responsible for record-breaking hot years since 1930s: Study

The researchers examined weather events that exceeded the range of natural variability and used climate modelling to compare those events to a world without human-induced greenhouse gases.

Nations with least emissions most vulnerable to climate change

Nations with least emissions most vulnerable to climate change

 Countries that emit the least amounts of greenhouse gases are ironically the most vulnerable to climate change effects such as increased frequency of natural disasters, changing habitats and human health impacts, a new study has found.

Less polluted nations most vulnerable to climate change

DNA: World leaders call for action at Paris Summit 2015

More than 140 world leaders are gathering in the French capital to kick-start two weeks of talks that aim to reach the first truly global deal to cut greenhouse gases.

Earth in 'uncharted territory' on global warming

Earth has heated up by one degree Celsius (1.6 degrees Fahrenheit), Britain's weather office said today, as greenhouse gases hit record levels just weeks before a crucial climate summit in Paris.

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.
