Atmospheric scientists report that suburban sprawl increases carbon dioxide emissions more than similar population growth in a developed urban core.
Old (or possibly ancient) carbon is escaping from Arctic soils, according to new evidence cited by The Washington Post. The news is an indicator that permafrost thaw could be aggravating the issue of climate change — although scientists are debating how much ancient carbon Arctic soils would discharge normally.

A critical comparison of Netflix's "Altered Carbon" adaptation and the source material. Column by BH Shepherd I first discovered Altered Carbon in a book review. It was a different time—I read the review in an actual newspaper and then...Show More Summary
Unique soils data from long-term experiments, stretching back to the middle of the nineteenth century, confirm the practical implausibility of burying carbon in the ground to halt climate change. The idea of using crops to collect more...Show More Summary
It's hard to believe that a single material can be described by as many superlatives as graphene can. Since its discovery in 2004, scientists have found that the lacy, honeycomb-like sheet of carbon atoms - essentially the most microscopic...Show More Summary
Y Combinator -- the accelerator program that birthed some of Silicon Valley’s hottest startups like Airbnb and Dropbox -- is looking for founders with an unusual interest: sucking carbon dioxide emissions out of the atmosphere. While...Show More Summary
Researchers from Washington State University and Tufts University have demonstrated for the first time that a single metal atom can act as a catalyst in converting carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide, a chemical reaction that is commonly used in catalytic converters to remove harmful gases from car exhaust.
The Unrecognized Dinner Party Threat To Climate Why what we eat is crucial to the climate change question; Our food – from what we eat to how it is grown – accounts for more carbon emissions than transport and yet staple crops will be...Show More Summary
Mynt Systems energy efficiency retrofit of the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose, CA helps the facility reduce energy usage and bring the facility to Net Zero Carbon
Young Republicans at universities across America are backing a carbon fee plan proposed by James Baker and George Schultz. Is this an idea whose time has come or one that is dead on arrival?
(Ruhr-University Bochum) Researchers have found a way to convert single bonds between carbon and hydrogen atoms in a chemical molecule into carbon-carbon bonds. This so-called C-H activation is considered a promising strategy for producing complex molecules from simple starting materials in just a few steps. Show More Summary
Labor is trying to have a policy on shutting down coal and tackling climate change, without having a policy on shutting down coal or tackling climate change, writes Ben Eltham. The politics of carbon has never been kind to Labor, but the ALP is suddenly in the most climate trouble it has been since losing [...]Show More Summary
A new analysis finds that city planners have been under counting greenhouse gas emissions from a key contributor.
Damn. by John Stang Not this time, Jay. Office of the Governor The main plank of Gov. Jay Inslee’s efforts to fight climate change died late Thursday afternoon in the Washington State Senate. “We were one or two votes short,” said Sen. Show More Summary

Although the production of carbon fiber goods may be steadily increasing, recycling the material still remains challenging. Thanks to research being conducted at Washington State University, however, it may soon be possible to grindShow More Summary
Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the world’s oceans have been absorbing carbon dioxide caused by human activity. Oceans act like a sponge to buffer the heating effects caused by excessive CO2 levels. Without it, the earth would be dangerously hot. But there’s a catch. Ocean acidification is described as climate change’s “evil twin.” […]
Jaguar's I-Pace is finally here, and as expected the vehicle is an almost exact carbon copy of the concept bearing the same name that we saw unveiled at the 2016 Los Angeles auto show. Responsible for the design is Jaguar design director Ian Callum who took inspiration from the Jaguar C-X75 supercar concept of 2010 when first putting pen to paper...
Less than 20 years after it was developed, a thin, resilient sheet of carbon atoms with remarkable properties known as graphene is transforming biomedical fields as far flung as tissue engineering, neuroprosthetics and drug discover...
