The first comprehensive assessment of where the Earth’s excess heat is accumulating has been released by the Global Climate Observing System, co-sponsored by the World Meteorological Organization, Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission-UNESCO, International Science Council and United Nations Environment Programme

The California redwood trees are not only the tallest on the planet, but are almost as old as the dinosaurs. Some are older than Christianity, and they are only in California. They have even survived some of the worst of climate change — until now

Despite renewed promises of change, countless calls for the end of burning of fossil fuels, greener solutions for the transport, agriculture, mining, and energy industries and an increase in the number of electric vehicles on the market, global carbon figures have steadily increased

Economic experts in Germany say the fastest way to meet the country's carbon reduction goals is to impose a fee on carbon emissions of between 25 and 50 euros per ton. Just don't call it a tax!

KivuWatt, a 34 MW power plant in Kibuye, Rwanda, was conceived to help reduce the risk of an overpressure gas outburst at Lake Kivu. The first-of-its-kind integrated methane gas extraction and production facility has since become a critical regional producer of power

Amanda Kistler, Director of Communications and Development at the Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL), has shared a new report with CleanTechnica. The full report, Plastic & Climate The Hidden Costs of a Plastic Planet, was released on May 15, 2019. Below is a summary of the report and several highlights from it

While scientists tend to talk about carbon capture and storage— one approach to fighting climate change — De Luna thinks the future instead will be about carbon capture and conversion.

We also know of many planets orbiting stars which are said to be “Goldilocks” planets, as they are, as Goldilocks would say, just right. But they are only just right as far as the position and size go, for liquid water, and surface gravity, as we have no idea, really, whether they could support life, or not.

The Awair Glow is a tiny, night light–sized appliance that brings smart air quality monitoring to your home. It doesn't stop there, as it is also able to trigger actions to correct the issues. Awair sent us over a unit to review, so we took it for a spin over the course of a couple of weeks

Runaway climate change turned Venus into a scorching hellscape, but Earth never grew so hot or cold that life failed to endure. Even in its most turbulent moments, our tiny planet remained a refuge, a blue-green lifeboat adrift against the vast hostility of space. Why

Carbon dioxide concentrations are heading towards values not seen in the past 200m years. The sun has also been gradually getting stronger over time. Put together, these facts mean the climate may be heading towards warmth not seen in the past half a billion years.

Owing to the widespread use of air conditioners, emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and carbon dioxide (CO2) increase substantially during the summer in the US (and surely elsewhere) — air conditioners use a lot of electricity. As global temperatures increase, that means many more people are turning on (and buying) air conditioners, which then increases the electricity production that is a leading cause of global warming.

Scott Pruitt, the newly elected head of the US Environmental Protection Agency and quickly-becoming-world-renowned nutbag, has responded to a question on CNBC by claiming that carbon dioxide was not "a primary contributor to the global warming that we see."

How much potential does biological carbon capture and sequestration offer? How much effort would be required to implement a large scale fix? Reasonable questions, so I went hunting for answers

City sidewalks and brick buildings look a little greener today, thanks to new research showing that cement can soak up CO2. That’s not the only good news to come out this week. A team of German scientists engineered photosynthesis to be faster and more efficient. And a team of Americans buried 1,000 tons of carbon pollution underground

NET Power is building what it claims is a no-carbon form of gas generation that's better than all the rest. It's broken ground on a 10 MW Texas plant in a consortium with Exelon Generation and Chicago Bridge & Iron (CB&I) to prove its technology.
