A more potent greenhouse gas than CO2, methane emissions will leap as Earth warms

While carbon dioxide is typically painted as the bad boy of greenhouse gases, methane is roughly 30 times more potent as a heat-trapping gas.

A faster way of converting natural gas to energy

Chemical engineering researchers have managed to identify a new mechanism to convert natural gas into energy up to 70 times faster, while effectively capturing the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2).

CO2 emissions hit record high

After 2009's dip in carbon emissions caused by the world economic crisis, levels hit a record high last year.
