Emissions from coal power stations could be cut drastically by a new, energy-efficient material that adsorbs large amounts of carbon dioxide, then releases it when exposed to sunlight.
The Middle East has lost fresh water reserves equivalent to the entire Dead Sea over the last ten years, data from NASA satellites shows.
The precious Antarctic environment is turning into a rubbish dump, ecologists from Germany's Jena University are warning.
I've never actually seen a three-wheel vehicle in use on the roads that wasn't an ATV, at least in the United States.
Chevrolet has officially introduced its 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel, which is powered by a small two-liter turbo diesel engine capable of racking up 42 mpg on the highway.
A new form of clean coal technology is ready for large-scale testing, following successful research trials at Ohio State University.
While sea level rises caused by global warming threaten islands, a tiny marine creature appears to be riding to the rescue, spreading rapidly through the oceans and stabilizing coastlines.
Want to help save the planet? Turn that PC off, sit back and put your feet up, says Washington thinktank the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR).
If you've ever watched an automotive race, it might surprise you that participants are actually striving for fuel efficiency.
The discovery that sea urchins use nickel particles to remove carbon dioxide from the sea could be the key to capturing tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere.
Extreme rainfall events are becoming more and more commmon across the globe as climate change brings higher temperatures, researchers say.
Climate change is threatening the health and safety of US coastal communities, according to a report.
Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles have been in development for a number of years, but haven't yet hit mainstream adoption to a lack of a viable hydrogen fuel infrastructure.
Global warming could be a lot less extreme than feared, according to a new study which finds that worldwide temperatures have levelled off.
Large cities can affect the weather as far as 1,000 miles away, say scientists, warming some areas and cooling others.
A new study indicates that the last interglacial period may give us a picture of where the planet is headed now, as greenhouse gases increase and temperatures rise.
Glaciers in the Andes are retreating faster than ever, say researchers, with global warming causing them to shrink by as much as half since the 1970s.
As soil warms from climate change, it releases additional carbon into the atmosphere – but that effect diminishes over the long term, say scientists.
Photovoltaics (PV) technology is much more efficient than biomass at fuelling a car, say researchers, making a mockery of the US 2005 energy bill that calls for more use of corn ethanol as a biofuel.
A hundred and fifty years after his death, Henry Thoreau has helped demostrate the effects of global warming on plant life in the US.
