  • Carbon study could help reduce harmful emissions

    A new study has revealed that storing carbon dioxide beneath the earth may be a safer and longer term method of reducing emissions in the atmosphere than previously thought. NERC funded researchers at the University of Manchester found that carbon dioxide (CO2) has been naturally stored for up to 40 million years in CO2 gas fields in the Colorado Plateau and Rocky Mountains of the USA. Their ...

  • Forest and donor countries stump up to reduce emissions

    Forest and donor countries have kicked off an important joint process which could speed up action to reduce the 20 per cent of global carbon emissions linked to deforestation and forest degradation.
