Climate Scientists Take Their Closest Look Yet at the Warming Impact of Aviation Emissions

By Leto Sapunar A new study reaffirms that contrail clouds produce more global warming than carbon dioxide, a finding that could help in the reduction of emissions from air travel. An international team of prominent scientists has published what they say is the most comprehensive study to date calculating the complex climate impact of aviation

CO2 reduction driven by a pH gradient

CO2 Coalition: New research examines how vital reduced carbon might have become available to early life on Earth. By Reuben Hudson et al. Significance Biology is built of organic molecules, which originate primarily from the reduction of CO2 through several carbon-fixation pathways. Only one of these—the Wood–Ljungdahl acetyl-CoA pathway—is energetically profitable overall and present in

Scientists Develop Cosmetic Cushion Made of CO2

DAEJEON, Sept. 15 (Korea Bizwire) — South Korean researchers have developed a cosmetic cushion using carbon dioxide (CO2). The Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology (KRICT) announced on Monday that it had developed a polyurethane cosmetic cushion and a heat-insulating building material using CO2, in collaboration with two local companies, Pusan National University and Inje University. The

Atmospheric Temperature and CO2: Hen-Or-Egg Causality? (Version 1)

By Demetris Koutsoyiannis and Zbigniew W. Kundzewicz Abstract: It is common knowledge that increasing CO2 concentration plays a major role in enhancement of the greenhouse effect and contributes to global warming. The purpose of this study is to complement the conventional and established theory that increased CO2 concentration due to human emissions causes an increase

Increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations outweighs effects of stand density in determining growth and water use efficiency in Pinus ponderosa of the semi-arid grasslands of Nebraska (U.S.A.)

By Giovanna Battipaglia et al. Abstract This study investigated the impacts of environmental (e.g., climate and CO2 level) and ecological (e.g., stand density) factors on the long-term growth and physiology of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) in a semi-arid north American grassland. We hypothesized that ponderosa pine long-term growth patterns were positively influenced by an increase
