CO2 Could Power Planes, Trains, and Ships Someday

By Elizabeth Montalbano An improved method for converting carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide could create a viable alternative energy source for modes of heavy transport. While researchers have experimented with using alternative fuels for large modes of transport such as airplanes, so far they haven’t found a truly viable option. That could change thanks to

Contrasting effects of CO2 fertilization, land-use change and warming on seasonal amplitude of Northern Hemisphere CO2 exchange

By Ann Bastos et al. Abstract Continuous atmospheric CO2 monitoring data indicate an increase in the amplitude of seasonal CO2-cycle exchange (SCANBP) in northern high latitudes. The major drivers of enhanced SCANBP remain unclear and intensely debated, with land-use change, CO2 fertilization and warming being identified as likely contributors. We integrated CO2-flux data from two

55 New (2019) Scientific Papers Link Solar Activity To Climate Change

By Kenneth Richard When it comes to the Sun’s influence on climate, one conclusion is certain: there is no widespread scientific agreement as to how and to what extent solar activity and its related parameters (i.e., galactic cosmic rays, geomagnetic activity, solar wind flux) impact changes in the Earth’s temperature and precipitation. The disagreement is so chasmic and the

Elevated CO2 Helps Mitigate the Negative Effects of Water Stress on Soybean Growth and Yield

Paper Reviewed Wang, A., Lam, S.K., Hao, X., Li, F.Y., Zong, Y., Wang, H. and Li, P. 2018. Elevated CO2 reduces the adverse effects of drought stress on a high-yielding soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) cultivar by increasing water use efficiency. Plant Physiology and Biochemistry 132: 660-665. Many researchers have examined the interactive effects of
