A United Nations report suggests that governments can still avert the more serious consequences of climate change provided they act quickly and aggressively to cut the accelerating pace of greenhouse-gas emissions. According to the ...   
10/4/2014
A key United Nations report is expected to suggest that governments will have to drastically reduce greenhouse-gas emissions to meet international goals to reduce the impact of global warming.Based on the current trend of emissions, the ...

As the term implies, geoengineering is engineering on a planetary scale. It involves attempting to arrest the course of climate change through mega-projects - by seeding the atmosphere with reflective particles, for example, or by putting ...

In the 19th century, as land-hungry pioneers steered their wagon trains westward across the United States, they encountered a vast landscape of towering grasses that nurtured deep, fertile soils. Today, just three percent of North ...

The National Academy of Sciences has teamed up with its U.K. counterpart, the Royal Society, to produce a different kind of climate-change report. Instead of NAS’s traditional report that is densely packed with erudite commentary aimed at a ...

John Kerry gave a speech in Jakarta, Indonesia, last weekend where he referred to climate change as “perhaps the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Navy Admiral Samuel Locklear, the head of U.S. ...

Starting and then stopping geoengineering techniques could aggravate global warming, scientists warn. A proposed mitigation technique which involves spewing sulfur particles into the atmosphere could help combat climate change – but if ...   
17/2/2014
As a range of climate change mitigation scenarios are discussed, University of Washington researchers have found that the injection of sulfate particles into the atmosphere to reflect sunlight and curb the effects of global warming could pose a ...

When U.S. Rep. Brian Baird tried a few years ago to get his colleagues to put more money toward ocean-acidification research, few even understood the issue. One congressman, Baird said, confused souring seas with acid rain, and asked, ...   
20/1/2014
Bad news on the climate front. It was already clear that we are very likely to break through all the "do not exceed" limits and go into runaway warming later this century, because greenhouse emissions have not dropped, are not dropping and ...   
11/1/2014
In a bid to avoid some of the worst effects of climate change some scientists are advocating possible strategies to artificially alter the climate. But critics warn of unforeseen and dangerous consequences of any atmosphere altering intervention. ...

In 1991, Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines erupted in one of the largest volcanic blasts of the 20th century. It spat up to 20 million tons of sulfur into the upper atmosphere, shielding the earth from the sun’s rays and causing global ...

So it`s come to this. Last year, a researcher presented a paper on climate change at the American Geophysical Union`s meeting entitled "Is Earth F**ked?" which advocated "environmental direct action, resistance taken from outside the ...

Artificial clouds that reflect sunlight back into space. A StratoShield that spews sulfur dioxide particles into space like a volcano, cooling the planet’s surface. Microbial blooms that grow on iron injected into the ocean and trap carbon ...

Despite the antics of technofixers, policy wonks, and mad billionaires everywhere, geoengineering persists as an appealing-if-wacky solution to all our climate ills. The basic logic is seductive: If we’ve messed up the climate by pumping bad ...

The 'plan B' of using geoengineering to rescue humanity from the impact of climate change exists in a 'vacuum' of international regulations, according to a recent review.Proposals to counteract the effects of global warming by engineering ...

Unless significant, steady reductions in the emissions of carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels begin extremely soon, the Earth might be much closer to potentially catastrophic warming than is widely believed. So argues climatologist James ...

In December 2012, a pink-haired complex systems researcher named Brad Werner made his way through the throng of 24,000 earth and space scientists at the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union, held annually in San Francisco. This year's ...
