Tiny marine animals help remove greenhouse gas emissions

It was decades ago that Bruce Robison first looked through the plexiglass sphere of a submersible and saw a very strange animal in the waters off Central California. Almost see-through and no bigger than a fist, the squishy tadpole-like animal was surrounded by a giant slime balloon that was about 3 feet wide. Robison could see chambers that were intricately …

Unused resource or greenhouse gas threat, found below the crack axis off the coast of Okinawa

Kyushu University researchers have located a large gas reservoir below the rifting axis, using an automated method to derive the velocity of seismic pressure waves from the seismic Reflection is based on data. The reservoir is seen as a dark blue low speed area within higher speed green areas in this two dimensional seismic velocity mapping, which extends over a …

Catalytic reactor transforms greenhouse gas into pure liquid fuel

Rice University engineer Haotian Wang sets the electrocatalysis reactor built in his laboratory to recycle carbon dioxide to produce liquid fuel. The reactor is designed so that the greenhouse gas is reused efficiently and profitably and not released into the atmosphere. Credit: Jeff Fitlow / Rice University Rice University's "green" invention reduces carbon dioxide into valuable fuels. An electrolyser producing …

The team is developing a new method to measure the ability of the atmosphere to remove methane, a powerful greenhouse gas

The "Flying Lab": Instruments in NASA research aircraft used for Glenn Wolfe's research. Picture credits: NASA. New research by Glenn Wolfe and UMBC staff has shown how scientists understand the fate of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, in the Earth's atmosphere. Of the greenhouse gases, methane has the third largest overall effect on the climate after carbon dioxide and water …

China launches illegal greenhouse gas destroying the ozone layer: study

Factories in the Chinese province of Shandong. Zhang Peng | LightRocket | Getty Images The emission of an illegal greenhouse gas destroying the earth's ozone layer has increased – and according to a new study, China is responsible for "a significant portion" of this increase. The study published on Wednesday showed that China accounted for between 40% and 60% of …

These deep-sea microbes eat greenhouse gases

They may devour oil spills, too. Hope you're hungry little guys, we have a lot to feed you. What an amazing planet we live on. It's funny, being human we tend to think we are child of know everything; or everything about our planet, at least. I'm musing on this because of a recent discovery by scientists at The University …

David Suzuki: Cool solutions mean that a greenhouse planet is not inevitable

In the midst of record global heat, devastating forest fires, droughts, refugee crises and torrential rains and floods, some particularly disturbing headlines hit the news. "The planet runs the risk of taking on irreversible" greenhouse conditions ", the CBC announced. Similar headlines appeared in other media. As CBC explained, "Scientists from the Stockholm Resilience Center, the University of Copenhagen, the …
