Research from the University of Adelaide has shown that some fish species will have higher reproductive capabilities due to larger sex organs under the more acidic oceans of the future. Published in PLOS biologyThe researchers say that far from the negative effects expected under the increased CO2 These values in our oceans, which are forecast […]
A McGill study recently published in Environmental Science and Technology found that annual methane emissions from decommissioned oil and gas wells (AOG) were grossly underestimated in Canada and the United States – by up to 150% in Canada and 20% in US. In fact, the research suggests that methane gas emissions from AOG wells are […]
At cruising altitude, airplanes emit a steady stream of nitrogen oxides into the atmosphere, where the chemicals can linger to produce ozone and particulate matter. Nitrogen oxides, or NOx, are a major source of air pollution and have been linked to asthma, respiratory diseases, and cardiovascular diseases. Previous research has shown that the production of […]
There is a growing consensus among scientists and national and local governments, representing hundreds of millions of people, that humanity is facing a climate crisis that requires a crisis response. New research from the University of California at San Diego examines one possible mode of response: a heavily funded program to deploy direct air capture […]
Wetlands are the dominant natural source of atmospheric methane, a powerful greenhouse gas that is second only to carbon dioxide in terms of its importance for climate change. It is expected that anthropogenic climate change will increase methane emissions from wetlands and lead to further warming. However, feedback on methane in wetlands has not been […]
The "Development of a Net Zero Farm" project aims to promote projects that develop innovative technologies, systems and / or process solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions in a commercial agricultural environment.
