Carbon Capture Technology

Carbon emissions are one of the main contributors to global warming. In an effort to mitigate the effects of climate change, scientists have developed ways to lessen the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, working to literally capture the carbon and remove it.

Carbon capture reduces the amount of carbon in the atmosphere during the […]

The Heat is On: Understanding Heat Fluctuations In Your Soil Environments

Researchers report that as the planet continues to warm, the carbon stored inside Earth’s soil could escape into the atmosphere at a much faster rate than previously expected. In a worst-case climate change scenario, carbon dioxide emissions could increase by 34 to 37 percent by 2100. In previous predictions, that number was merely nine to […]

Why is the Term “Change” Such a Charged Word?

Change is hard. It can also be controversial. But what is it about the word “change” that can produce such harsh, strong reactions?

The Threat of Rising CO2 Concentrations

The levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the earth’s atmosphere are constantly increasing, a worrying trend for environmentalists and the planet as a whole.

In May, levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere exceeded 411 parts per million, which was the largest single monthly average ever to be recorded at Hawaii’s Mauna Loa […]
