Carbon dioxide News

exhaust 20th December Carbon Copy
Global carbon dioxide emissions in 2015 are likely to be the same as those in 2014 according to a new analysis in Nature Climate Change. It is unclear whether this is a short term hiatus.

flame 20th December Negative Net Emissions
Pete Smith, of Aberdeen University, and colleagues have quantified the potential for negative net emissions techniques, such as biomass-burning carbon capture and storage.

soil 2nd November Eroding Sinks
Adrian Chappell and colleagues at CSIRO in Australia have assessd the imporantance of soil erosion in carbon stocks, fluxes and sinks. They highlight its global significance for climate change mitigation.

ship 17th April 2015 Acid Extinction
Rachel Wood and colleagues at the University of Edinburgh have shown how oceans became much more acidic 250 million years ago, with a rate of increase in CO2 similar to that occuring today.

leaves 1st April 2015 Greenest Masters Ever?
Dave Reay and colleagues at the University of Edinburgh have launched a new online MSc in Carbon Management. Entirely delivered via distance learning it may well be the greenest Masters ever.
