The increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration is a major factor in global warming, and about one fifth of atmospheric CO2 comes from soil sources.
Trapping carbon dioxide is a crucial role in the battle against climate change. Thus, scientists are trying to figure out how to maximize the ability of forests to remove CO2 from the atmosphere.
It’s true. Mosquitoes prefer biting some people over others and now scientists know why. As it turns out, about 20% of people are especially yummy to mosquitoes. Here’s why.
Today kids can triumphantly raise their fists in the air and shout “We told you so!” A company out of British Columbia has created a machine that can suck carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and put it back into the ground!
Scientists announced this week that the level of heat-trapping carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has reached a level not seen on earth for a long time, surpassing 400 parts per million (0.000400 mole), a dire milestone. The best available evidence suggests the amount of carbon dioxide gas in the air has not been this high…
New research has revealed that carbon dioxide, the gas we exhale in every breath, may significantly impair cognitive functioning when accumulated in indoor environments and the levels that prove dangerous may be much less than they had previously thought safe.
