The Mathematics of Carbon Dioxide, Part 1

This is a guest essay by Mike Jonas, part 1 of 4 Introduction The aim of this article is to provide simple mathematical formulae that can be used to calculate the carbon dioxide (CO2) contribution to global temperature change, as represented in the computer climate models. This article is the first in a series of…

One more thing for Greece to worry about – undersea pools of carbon dioxide

From Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution – Carbon dioxide pools discovered in Aegean Sea The location of the second largest volcanic eruption in human history, the waters off Greece’s Santorini are the site of newly discovered opalescent pools forming at 250 meters depth. The interconnected series of meandering, iridescent white pools contain high concentrations of carbon…

Claim: Increased carbon dioxide levels in air restrict plants’ ability to absorb nutrients

From the University of Gothenburg and the “this is why we buy CO2 generators for greenhouses“ department. The rapidly rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere affect plants’ absorption of nitrogen, which is the nutrient that restricts crop growth in most terrestrial ecosystems. Researchers at the University of Gothenburg have now revealed that the…
