Black carbon, as soot is also known, could be twice as bad as previously estimated as an agent of global warming. The news comes in an exhaustive, 232-page study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research Atmospheres, written by 31 scientists
To date, though, few scientific expeditions have successfully utilised crowd-funding...The project's website explains: Dark Snow is a field and lab project to measure the impact of changing wildfire and industrial soot on snow and ice reflectivity.
The four-year assessment by an international panel concludes that black carbon, the soot particles in smoke and smog, contributes about twice as much to global warming as previously estimated, even by the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Suggested Topics Soot created by the incomplete burning of fossil fuels and organic matter is the second most important man-made substance behind global warming and reducing its emission into the atmosphere could buy valuable time in tackling climate
The small kerosene lamps that light millions of homes in developing countries also contribute to global warming, say researchers. New measurements showed that kerosene wick lamps release 20 times more black carbon than previously thought, said
As the COP18 Doha climate crisis talks come to a close, the planet's climate health is turning worse while conflicting capitals are busy fighting...Levels of other heat-trapping gases including methane, nitrous oxide have also jumped to record
December 6, 2012 Doha, Qatar WE all know (or should know) by now that the carbon dioxide we produce when we burn fossil fuels and cut down forests is the planet's single largest contributor to global warming...Reducing these emissions by as much as
Fast action on black carbon and methane have the potential to slow a global temperature rise by up to 0.5 degrees C by 2050, reduce air pollution-related deaths by as much as 2.4 million and crop losses by around 30 million tonnes annually.
Swinburne University This year Arctic sea ice reached a historic low , breaking a record set in 2007 by a whopping 18 percent. Researchers suggest that the sea ice could disappear entirely in as little as two or three decades. That would accelerate
The bright orange flames of kerosene wick lamps used in millions of impoverished households around the world are significant sources of global warming and pollutants linked to respiratory diseases , according to a new study. Lab and field work led by
