But these storm events also result in a spike in methane emissions from fjords to the atmosphere.

International Satellite to Track Impacts of Small Ocean Currents

SWOT’s solar panels unfold as part of a test in January at a Thales Alenia Space facility in Cannes, France, where the satellite is being assembled. SWOT will measure elevations…

LIVESTREAM, NOON CT TODAY: The Truth About Global CO2 Emissions

Claim: Breakthrough in Estimating Fossil Fuel CO2 Emissions

The estimate uses a new method for separating CO2 signals from land plants and fossil fuels in the atmosphere. Previously it has not been possible to quantify changes in regional-scale…

Sorry, But Hard Science is Not Done This Way.

The short story: Can we detect a change of CO2 in the air after emission reductions following Covid-19 lockdowns?

Seafloor spreading has been slowing down

This cycle is called seafloor spreading, and its rate shapes many global processes, including sea level and the carbon cycle. Faster rates tend to cause more volcanic activity, which releases…

Will China achieve its 2060 carbon neutral commitment from the provincial perspective?

China has pledged to peak carbon emissions before 2030 and strive to achieve carbon neutrality before 2060

NASA Science Enables First-of-its-Kind Detection of Reduced Human CO2 Emissions

For the first time, researchers have spotted short-term, regional fluctuations in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) across the globe due to emissions from human activities.

CO2 Emissions Hit Record High in 2021

Although a large rise was inevitable following the lockdowns of 2020, the significant fact is that emissions are higher than in 2019. Given that the global economy still has not…

How Much Manmade CO2 is in the Atmosphere, Really?

Our results show that the percentage of the total CO2 due to the use of fossil fuels from 1750 to 2018 increased from 0% in 1750 to 12% in 2018, much…

Fossil Fuel Generation Outpaces Renewables in 2021 – IEA

While Fatih Birol whistles in the dark, the fine words at COP26 hit the wall of reality.

Finally, New York State Tells The World How To Achieve Net Zero Carbon Emissions

New York may be a late-comer to Net Zero plans, but by God, our politicians and bureaucrats are so much smarter than those clowns across the country or the pond.…

Global Human CO2 Emissions Have Been On A Slightly Declining Trend Since 2011

So we have (a) flat to declining trends in annual anthropogenic CO2 emissions in the last decade, (b) many times smaller annual CO2 emissions fluxes from anthropogenic sources relative to…

Tech Companies Underreport CO2 Emissions

“The often unsystematic and inaccurate reporting of companies’ carbon footprints is a problem for policymakers, stakeholders and the companies themselves,” says Lena Klaaßen. “The lack of transparency makes it difficult…

Emission Reductions From Pandemic Had Unexpected Effects on Atmosphere

Earth’s atmosphere reacted in surprising ways to the lowering of emissions during the pandemic, showing how closely climate warming and air pollution are linked.

Dr Roger Pielke, Jr -What does IPCC AR6 say on Scenarios and Extreme Weather?

. It is very appealing, even seductive, for activists and the media to latch on to extreme events (as inaccurately summarized in the SPM), but at some point we have…

Human behavior sabotages CO2-reducing strategies

“But when you talk about structural change, people are just thinking, ‘that will destroy our way of life.’ But if we don’t solve that problem today, the environment will change…

China To Build 43 New Coal-Fired Power Plants

The report reckons that these new coal plants and blast furnaces will add 150 million tonnes to China’s CO2 emissions. This is roughly half the UK’s total emissions.

California’s carbon mitigation efforts may be thwarted by climate change itself

In a paper published today in the American Geophysical Union journal AGU Advances, the UCI Earth system scientists stressed that rising temperatures and uncertain precipitation will cause a decrease in California’s…

China’s carbon-monitoring satellite reports global carbon net of six gigatons

About six gigatons — roughly 12 times the mass of all living humans — of carbon appears to be emitted over land every year, according to data from the Chinese…
