The other day, I half-jokingly told a Canadian friend who is a pastor that I needed to do penance for all the air travel I’m doing for work.
Cutting carbon emissions could be a public health boon
Prescribed fires could lower carbon emissions in western U.S.
Some forests may sequester less carbon as climate warms
The nitrogen pumped by humans into the environment may reduce plant biodiversity, but higher carbon-dioxide levels could hold those losses in check.
The loss of ice shelves and glaciers in parts of Antarctica has exposed thousands of square kilometers of water, opening up new habitat for plant and animal communities that could act as car
Acre for acre, more organic carbon is stored in cities and suburbs than anywhere else—even tropical forests.
Injecting CO2 into subsurface rocks could provide permanent storage
Who says science is no picnic? To assess the carbon footprint of barbecues, Eric Johnson rounded up eight volunteer grillers (including himself) and held the equivalent of 50 cookouts.
Old-growth trees absorb carbon, but increasing drought could cause them to belch it out
