The large scale project CLIMAITE, led by Risø DTU, has published its first synthesis paper in the renowned journal Global Change Biology, and the conclusion is perhaps a little surprising that the predicted increase in plant growth,... Read Post

Global carbon dioxide emissions increase to new all-time record, but growth is slowing down

Academics / General Science : Science Codex (3 days ago)

2013 saw global CO2 emissions from fossil fuel use and cement production reach a new all-time high. This was mainly due to the continuing steady increase in energy use in emerging economies over the past ten years. However, emission... Read Post
