A new study, published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, has revealed that feeding cows with antibiotics may increase greenhouse gas emissions from cow dung, burps and farts.

Using up all known fossil fuel reserves would render Earth even more unlivable than scientists had previously projected, researchers said on Monday.

Efforts to reduce dangerous air and climate pollutants by Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) countries could reap immediate and long-term benefits for health, food security and the climate according to the first ever Integrated Assessment of Short-lived Climate Pollutants (SLCPs) for the region.

The court cited examples of waste management techniques used in cities such as Paris and Stockholm.

Gas hydrates stored on continental shelves are susceptible to dissociation triggered by environmental changes. Knowledge of the timescales of gas hydrate dissociation and subsequent methane release are critical in understanding the impact of marine gas hydrates on the ocean–atmosphere system. Here we report a methane efflux chronology from five sites, at depths of 220–400 m, in the southwest Barents and Norwegian seas where grounded ice sheets led to thickening of the gas hydrate stability zone during the last glaciation.

Let no one say that India is not doing its bit to fight global climate change: Government scientists are working hard to reduce carbon emissions by making cows less flatulent.

The National Green Tribunal on Monday took the Delhi government to task for its failure to implement its order banning vehicles more than 15 years old from plying on the roads in the national capit

Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) have requested guidance on common greenhouse gas metrics in accounting for Nationally determined contributions (NDCs) to emission reductions. Metric choice can affect the relative emphasis placed on reductions of ‘cumulative climate pollutants’ such as carbon dioxide versus ‘short-lived climate pollutants’ (SLCPs), including methane and black carbon.

Greenhouse Gas Data Management: Building Systems for Corporate/Facility-Level Reporting is intended to serve as a reference document for regulators, GHG reporting program and system administrators, and IT/development teams on all aspects of designing and developing GHG data management systems.

The body of evidence is growing that fracking is not only bad for the global climate, it is also dangerous for local communities. And affected communities are growing in number. A new report, details the sheer amount of water contamination, air pollution, climate impacts, and chemical use in fracking in the United States.
