It's capturing carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere for fuel that planes and trucks could one day use.
To fully grasp the potential of trees to combat climate change, one has to understand the "Urban Heat Island Effect." This situation occurs when pavement and other built materials in our cities absorb and re-radiate heat, to create an oven-like effect.
High costs of CCS -- such as to capture carbon dioxide from the exhaust gases of power plants or to strip carbon from natural
A 2012 study by 50 scientists and policy experts from around the world estimates that climate disruption kills nearly 1,000 children every day. Trees are our climate saviors, and it takes decades or centuries -- time we don't have -- to recover from the mistake of cutting them down.
Bruce Nilles, the director of the Sierra Club's "Beyond Coal" campaign, argued that the coal industry has always promised
The state also issued nearly 200,000 offsets for the Farm Cove Improved Forest Management Project in eastern Maine, which
“The implications (of the study) have more importance to the climate community,” Frohlich said. “Of the things that have
Two new projects that are slated to start operating in 2014 in Kemper County, Mississippi and Saskatchewan, Canada will become
Herzog, who has headed MIT's Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies Program since 1989, says that's a policy failure
From Mother Nature Network's John Platt: Here's an interesting idea: What if the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by power plants
Climatologists tell us that the climate change train has long since left the station, but perhaps it is not yet too late to prevent it from accelerating beyond our capacity to cope.
SaskPower says that the plant will reduce carbon emissions by about 90 percent - the equivalent, it says, of taking 250,000
* First oil sands carbon capture project * Quest project to bury 1 mln tonnes of CO2 per year * Construction complete by
Americans are behind Obama, in the sense that they support the president's concept of a national clean energy standard. But they're also behind, in the sense that the voting public is unwilling to go as far as the president wants to go because of costs.
New research concludes we've got space to store carbon, but other issues remain.
