British Scientists Invent ‘Porous Liquid’ to Trap Carbon Dioxide, Future Potential High

British scientists have made a breakthrough with success in the so-called “Carbon-Capture” technology that has potential to turn around the climate change debate forever. The scientists at Queen’s University, Belfast have made a “porous liquid” which can dissolve unusually high amounts of gas, which are absorbed into the ‘holes’ in the liquid. Prof. Stuart James of Queen’s School of Chemistry ...

Antarctica’s Ice Sheet to Disappear Due to Global Warming, Says Study

Researchers have simulated a futuristic scenario of Antarctica due to global warming to provide a gloomy picture of how the ice-sheet would disappear and the bare deserted land would stare at the mankind. In their study published in the journal Nature, Victoria University’s Antarctic Research Centre and GNS Science researchers provided their simulated findings to predict how the Antarctic ice ...

Global Warming to Alter the Planet’s Shape

Climate change affect not just temperature, but it also alter the Earth’s shape according to the Scientists from the University of British Colombia. One of the most rapidly warming regions of the world, the Canadian Acrtic will feel these effects acutely. More than 4 degree celsius of warming over the last 50 years, the glaciers will be seen flowing up ...

Crocs face Extinction Soon Due to Human Expansion: Australian Expert

Many of the world’s 27 species of crocodylians will soon be either totally or locally extinct due to human population expansion and intensive land-use for agriculture depleting the water bodies, which provide succour to crocs, said a University of Queensland researcher. Emeritus Professor Gordon Grigg of UQ says the fact that these reptiles had survived millions of years was no good ...

CO2 Melted Ice Age for Sure, Prepare for Similar Global Melt-Down of Glaciers, Warn Researchers

While world is aware of a plethora of causes which receded the last Ice Age such as solar radiation, ocean currents and others, a new study has focused on mere carbon dioxide that it said had resulted mainly in eroding the glaciers. The study based on measuring isotopes in boulders uncovered during the global meltdown 11,000 years ago, said the ...

Global temeprature anomaly highest since 2009-10, says Report

The Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) published Friday a comparison between global average temperatures over the last few months and the last 30 years. Twelve-month averages of global temperatures relative to 1981–2010 reached a value in June 2015 that is comparable with peak values experienced in 2005 and 2009-10, according to figures released by ECMWF. The 12-month period up to ...

Earth’s Surface Temperature Cooling Down as Pacific, Indian Oceans Accumulating More Heat: NASA Study

A NASA study of ocean temperatures from 2003–2012 found that despite increase in greenhouse gases, the global surface temperature is cooling down, a strange phenomenon that climate contrarians term as merely a “hiatus.” The study said one of the leading explanations could be that extra heat was being stored in the ocean. The Pacific Ocean is trapping ocean heat energy ...
