The evolution of the Earth's first animals more than 500 million years ago caused global warming, according to a study.

The policy, which is the part of NITI Aayog, aims to reduce the number of vehicles on the road with the introduction of modern shared transport system like air conditioned e-bus and e-autorickshaws

Buoyed by the enthusiasm following the Transport Department’s trial of an electric bus here a fortnight ago, the state government has moved a step closer to introducing more number of electric vehi

Internationally, carbon pricing instruments have witnessed growing interest as cost effective policy measures for climate mitigation.

NEW DELHI: Trees in Delhi — those along avenues, in colonies and at scattered lots — have been on a decline since 2005.

The early part of the last deglaciation is characterised by a ~40 ppm atmospheric CO2 rise occurring in two abrupt phases. The underlying mechanisms driving these increases remain a subject of intense debate. Here, we successfully reproduce changes in CO2, δ13C and Δ14C as recorded by paleo-records during Heinrich stadial 1 (HS1). We show that HS1 CO2 increase can be explained by enhanced Southern Ocean upwelling of carbon-rich Pacific deep and intermediate waters, resulting from intensified Southern Ocean convection and Southern Hemisphere (SH) westerlies.

On May 17, 2018, the European Commission released a regulatory proposal for setting the first ever carbon dioxide (CO2) emission standards for new heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) sold in the European Union.

HYDERABAD: Forget the core city of Hyderabad; even peripheral or peri-urban areas are now under the threat of poisonous black carbon particulate matter.

This paper investigates factors behind the growth of carbon dioxide emissions over the 35 years between 1980 and 2015 in more than 100 countries, using an index decomposition technique (the Logarithmic Mean Divisia Index). The results are further confirmed using an econometric technique (the general method of moments).

A significant amount of the final energy demand of the manufacturing industry is in providing heating and cooling to processes and buildings. Renewable heating and cooling (RHC) technologies are one way to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with the generation of this heating and cooling demand.
