  • Carbon Dioxide Captured Directly From the Air

    NEW YORK, New York (ENS) - The capture of carbon dioxide, CO2, directly from the air has been successfully demonstrated by scientists at Columbia University and Global Research Technologies, LLC, a technology research and development company based in Tucson, Arizona. The 'air extraction' prototype has demonstrated that carbon dioxide can be captured from the atmosphere, ...

  • Record drop in U.S. carbon dioxide emissions in 2009

    In 2009, energy-related carbon dioxide emissions in the United States saw their largest absolute and percentage decline (405 million metric tons or 7.0 percent) since the start of EIA's comprehensive record of annual energy data that begins in 1949, more than 60 years ago. While emissions have declined in three out of the last four years, 2009 was exceptional.  As discussed below, emissions ...

  • Carbon dioxide is not the knob controlling global warming

    Atmospheric scientist Dr. Judith Curry told the U.S. Senate on Jan 16, 2014 that, in light of the extended ‘hiatus’ of 15 years (to 2012) with no appreciable global warming despite a significant rise in carbon dioxide, it is clear that carbon dioxide is not the knob that controls global warming. Natural factors are clearly more influential. The biggest and most obvious natural factor ...

  • World carbon dioxide emissions may be falling

    Global carbon dioxide emissions may be dropping ever so slightly this year, spurred by a dramatic plunge in Chinese pollution, according to a surprising new study released Monday. The unexpected dip could either be a temporary blip or true hope that the world is about to turn the corner on carbon pollution as climate talks continue in Paris, said the study’s authors, a scientific team that ...

  • Carbon Dioxide Capture, Storage May Help Ease Global Warming

    MONTREAL, Quebec, Canada, September 29, 2005 (ENS) - Capturing and storing the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by power plants and factories before it enters the atmosphere could play a major role in minimizing climate change, finds a new assessment report finalized here Monday by member scientists of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The first summary of the ...

  • Questions and Answers on the proposal for a directive on the geological storage of carbon dioxide

    1) What is carbon capture and storage? Carbon capture and storage is a suite of technological processes which involve capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the gases discarded by industry and transporting and injecting it into geological formations. The major application for carbon capture and storage (CCS) is to reduce CO2 emissions from power generation from fossil fuels, principally ...

  • Global Energy-Related Emissions of Carbon Dioxide Stalled in 2014

    Data from the International Energy Agency (IEA) indicate that global emissions of carbon dioxide from the energy sector stalled in 2014, marking the first time in 40 years in which there was a halt or reduction in emissions of the greenhouse gas that was not tied to an economic downturn. "This gives me even more hope that humankind will be able to work together to combat climate change, the most ...
