Articles on Technological Breakthroughs in Climate Change

  • Rainforest in Transition: Is the Amazon Transforming before Our Eyes?
    Jan. 18, 2012 - David Biello -

    A review suggests that the Amazon rainforest may be changing, courtesy of human impacts on the region's weather.

  • Global Carbon Emissions Reach Record 10 Billion Tons, Threatening 2 Degree Target
    Dec. 4, 2011 -

    ScienceDaily (Dec. 4, 2011) — Global carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels have increased by 49 per cent in the last two decades, according to the latest figures by an international team, including researchers at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, University of East Anglia.

  • Vast methane 'plumes' seen in Arctic ocean as sea ice retreats
    Dec. 13, 2011 - STEVE CONNOR -

    Dramatic and unprecedented plumes of methane – a greenhouse gas 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide – have been seen bubbling to the surface of the Arctic Ocean by scientists undertaking an extensive survey of the region.

  • Feed-in Tariffs Best to Deal with Climate Change Says IPCC Working Group III Renewables
    Nov. 8, 2011 - Paul Gipe -

    The 135-page report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change , especially Chapter 11 on Policy, Financing and Implementation, makes it clear that the overwhelming weight of academic studies conclude that feed-in tariffs--or fixed-price mechanisms--perform better at delivering renewable energy quickly and equitably than quota systems, such as Renewable Portfolio Standards in the US or the Renewable Obligation in Britain. This is not the unsurprising conclusion from a surprising source: the IPCC's Working Group III on Renewables.

  • World headed for irreversible climate change in five years, IEA warns
    Nov. 9, 2011 - Fiona Harvey -

    If fossil fuel infrastructure is not rapidly changed, the world will 'lose for ever' the chance to avoid dangerous climate change.

  • Climate concerns as ‘ozone-friendly’ HFCs use grows
    Nov. 21 2011 - Mark Kinver -

    A rise in the use of "ozone-friendly" HFCs has prompted experts to voice concerns that the potent greenhouse gases could be a problem in the future.

  • World Bank to Help Cities Control Climate Change
    Jul 13, 2011 - Alexei Barrionuevo -

    SÃO PAULO, Brazil — The World Bank signed an agreement on Wednesday with mayors from 40 of the world’s biggest cities to work on technical and financial assistance for projects to minimize the effects of climate change.

  • Cutting Black Carbon and Methane Promises Immediate Climate Change Impacts
    Feb 05, 2011 - Lauren Morello - ClimateWire -

    Reducing emissions of black carbon and methane can be done today with existing technologies, and could significantly slow climate change

  • Reverse Combustion: Can CO2 Be Truned Back into Fuel?
    Nov 10, 2010 - David Biello - Scientific American

    Various efforts are underway to find a cheap, efficient and scalable way to recycle the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide back into the hydrocarbons that fuel civilization.

  • Cross-border project would capture, store CO2
    Feb 13, 2009 - Mattew Brown- The Associated Press

    A $245 million climate-change initiative being pursued by officials in the U.S. and Canada could create North America's first large-scale project for storing greenhouse gases.

  • How green was my valley?
    Oct 23, 2008 - Kashmir - The Economist

    Climate change will only intensify problems in Kashmir. AFTER a hard climb up the eastern flank of the Kolahoi glacier, Ghulam Jeelani, a geo-hydrologist from the University of Kashmir, catches his breath. This is the Kashmir valley’s only year-round source of water. But it is melting at an alarming rate. The glacier is a dirty brown colour, wrinkled with crevasses. It looks more like an enormous mudslide than a frozen reservoir of fresh water. Mr Jeelani says that the glacier is in “ablation”—shrinking through melting. If present trends, which are blamed on climate change, continue, he concludes with a shrug, “In ten years there will be no Kolahoi glacier.”

  • Australia finds way to capture CO2 from power station flue gases
    Jul 9, 2008 - Asia In Focus

    The CSIRO has achieved a major breakthrough for Australia by capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from power station flue gases, it's energy technology chief says. The landmark was achieved at the post-combustion-capture (PCC) pilot plant at Loy Yang Power Station in Victoria's Latrobe Valley.

  • Danger Gas Breakthrough; Scientists' Special Tubes Could Cut Power Station Emissions
    Aug 3, 2007 - Evening Chronicle

    ENGINEERS in the North East may have developed a way to cut greenhouse gas emissions from power stations to almost nothing. The team of experts from Newcastle University has been researching the effects of ceramic tubes to develop a new combustion process.
