The increasing amount of dissolved carbon dioxide oceans is driving fish crazy, Australian researchers say.
Most of the world is taking small steps to reduce energy consumption – such as changing to CFL light bulbs or Energy Star appliances, and perhaps installing a few solar panels.
Next time you check the weather on your desktop icon or mobile phone app, will you be ale to get an update on the carbon dioxide and methane concentrations in the air, as well?
As atmospheric carbon dioxide increases, the planet won't get as hot as previous studies have indicated, new research shows.
Despite everything, there are now record quantities of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, according to UN agency the World Meteorological Organization.
Photosynthesis is the process that allows plants to use solar energy to convert carbon dioxide (CO2) and water into sugars and other hydrocarbons.
Bacteria in the ocean are communicating and cooperating in a phenomenon which could be having a significant impact on the planet's climate.
The large increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide at the end of the last ice age wasn't released by the oceans, scientists have concluded.
Storing carbon dioxide underground poses little threat to health, scientists from the University of Edinburgh claim.
Good news, for once: new research indicates that, for polar sea ice at least, there's no 'tipping point' from which recovery is impossible.
Engineering researchers at the University of Minnesota have discovered a new alloy capable of converting heat directly into electricity.
Comet Hartley 2 is an excitable little chap - in a class of its own, say astronomers.
After 2009's dip in carbon emissions caused by the world economic crisis, levels hit a record high last year.
Frequent periods of intense global warming took place in the distant past, say researchers at UC San Diego's Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
Is it penance for all those old Chevrolet/GM gas-guzzlers still on the road? Forward-looking environmental stewardship? Basic good-neighborliness?
A combination of all three?
Scientists have been surprised to discover that Martian sand dunes long thought to be static are in fact changing quite fast.
The Cassini-Huygens mission has identified an oxygen-carbon dioxide atmosphere around Saturn's second-biggest moon, Rhea - the first time a spacecraft has captured an oxygen atmosphere from a world other than Earth.
A new study from the National Center for Atmospheric Research and other bodies aims to quantify the effects of population growth on carbon dioxide emissions, and concludes that it could make a big difference.
There's been liquid water on the Martian surface throughout the planet's history, measurements by NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander suggest.
Porsche AG is likely to price its hybrid 918 Spyder at a cool $630,000.
