As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, scientists have predicted that global carbon dioxide emissions may drop by more than 5 percent in 2020—in what would be the largest fall since the end of the Second World War.
Low-carbon geopolymer cement can reduce CO2 by up to 90 percent. But it costs three times as much as the usual cement and nobody is buying it.
For the first time since humans existed on earth, carbon dioxide has exceeded 415 parts per million.
Scientists have harnessed liquid metals to turn carbon dioxide back into solid coal, in research that offers an alternative pathway for safely and permanently removing the greenhouse gas from our atmosphere.
Scientists have discovered that increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide may lead to lesser amounts of nutrients, such as essential B vitamins, in rice.
Study finds large amounts of carbon dioxide, equivalent to yearly U.K. emissions, remain in surface waters.
A company has unveiled the world’s first Direct Air Capture (DAC) commercial plant on top of a waste recovery facility in Zurich, Switzerland.
With atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations having reached 400 ppm 2015 and with no signs of them abating in 2016 the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said that "a new era of climate change reality" is upon us.
If scientists can figure out how to convert atmospheric carbon dioxide into fuel - and do it at an industrial scale - it would, quite literally, change the world.
