Scientists dim sunlight, suck up carbon dioxide to cool planet

OSLO (Reuters) - Scientists are sucking carbon dioxide from the air with giant fans and preparing to release chemicals from a balloon to dim the sun's rays as part of a climate engineering push to cool the planet.

Carbon dioxide pollution kills hundreds a year - study

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Climate-warming carbon dioxide spewed by coal-fired power plants and fossil-fueled vehicles has been causing hundreds of premature U.S. deaths each year over the several decades, a new study reported.

Turning carbon dioxide into fuel

Researchers have created an artificial leaf that turns carbon dixoide into synthetic gas which can be converted into fuel.

Scientists say a rock can soak up carbon dioxide

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A rock found mostly in Oman can be harnessed to soak up the main greenhouse gas carbon dioxide at a rate that could help slow global warming, scientists say.

Carbon dioxide at record high, stoking warming - WMO

OSLO (Reuters) - Levels of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas emitted by burning fossil fuels, hit a record high in the atmosphere in 2006, accelerating global warming, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said on Friday.

Carbon dioxide levels grew at record pace in 2016, U.N. says

GENEVA (Reuters) - The amount of carbon dioxide in the earth's atmosphere grew at record rate in 2016 to a level not seen for millions of years, potentially fuelling a 20-metre rise in sea levels and adding 3 degrees to temperatures, the United Nations said on Monday.

Carbon dioxide found on 'hot Jupiter' planet

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Carbon dioxide has been seen on a hot planet outside our solar system -- another piece of evidence supporting the possibility that life could develop elsewhere, astronomers said on Tuesday.

U.S. urged to bury carbon dioxide from coal

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Top coal-burning countries like the United States should start burying carbon dioxide emissions from power plants as a wider crackdown on greenhouse gases looks increasingly likely, according to a study.

Less carbon dioxide from oil palm estates

KUCHING: The Tropical Peat Research Unit in the Sarawak Chief Minister's Department has set up three Eddy Coveriance towers to carry out an advanced carbon flux study to reinforce its early breakthrough in scientific findings that carbon dioxide (CO2) emission from oil palm plantations on peatland is lower than that of forest peat swamp.

Global carbon dioxide levels hit a new record in 2017, U.N. says

GENEVA (Reuters) - The amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere hit a new record of 405.5 parts per million in 2017, up from 403.3 ppm in 2016, with no sign of reversal in the trend, the World Meteorological Organization said in its annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin.
