One research team proposes swapping atmospheric methane for CO2, and it might be a good idea

It’s not the best solution, but it could help.

New paper proposes we use air conditioners to make fuel out of thin air

Feasible or not, it’s still an interesting idea.

Climate change may make the oceans belch out CO2, study warns

Oh, how the waters have turned.

Ice ages may be caused by tectonic activity in the tropics, new study proposes

New process could capture CO2 and make it coal again

“Poetic justice” comes to mind.

“Vested interests” cause major threat to human existence, researchers say

The change can only come from civil society, researchers urge.

Buried away: deep soil holds surprisingly much CO2, but warming is bad news

Soils can store a lot of carbon, but not if temperatures continue to rise.

Natural batteries formed Mars’ organic carbon

Still no aliens. But this is definitely a cool find!

Using land displaced by biofuels to grow trees is much better for climate, say researchers

I like trees.

Curbing climate change: carbon storage is good, forests are oft-times better

If it ain’t broken, don’t replace it with a powerplant.

Grasslands could overtake forests as the most reliable carbon sink ecosystems

But this doesn’t mean we should stop focusing on forests — on the contrary.

The Milky Way seems to be full of toxic ‘space grease’

The universe is stickier than scientists used to think.

It’s a damn shame.

Pee, Poop, and Perspiration Will Be Useful in Traveling to Mars

Astronauts’ waste will not be wasted.

Silicon-based life on Earth? Only artificially, so far — but maybe natural on other planets

A team of researchers forced bacteria to create carbon-silicon bonds, and their experiment showcases why life on our planet chose carbon.

“Felting” carbon nanotubes could finally allow us to use the wonder-material at large

Carbon nanotubes are one of the most promising materials humanity is looking into today — problem is, they tend to break when mixed with anything else.

Hard-pressed by humans, rainforests lost their ability to act as carbon sinks

Instead, they now release around 8% of global emissions.

Exotic carbon molecule has six bonds, breaking the four-bond limit

This molecule doesn’t play by the rules.
