Eliminating energy-related air pollution in the United States could prevent roughly 50,000 premature deaths and save billions of dollars per year.
Greenhouse Gases Must Begin to Fall by 2025, Says U.N. Climate Report
Emissions rates are still growing every year, though that growth has slowed. The world needs to reach negative growth soon to prevent a potential 3.2°C rise by the end of the century.
U.S. Businesses May Be Required to Report Emissions, Climate Risk
The proposed rules seek to give investors more complete and standardized climate risk information. The move would bring U.S. policy closer to international standards.
The Surprising Greenhouse Gas That Caused Volcanic Summer
Extended periods of volcanism known as flood basalt eruptions lead to volcanic winters, which are often followed by an extended period of warming. But it was more than just carbon dioxide that warmed the globe.
Framework for Fingerprinting Human Influence on Climate
An optimal approach for detection and attribution studies using the CMIP6 Detection and Attribution Model Intercomparison Project (DAMIP).
Inventorying Earth’s Land and Ocean Greenhouse Gases
A new special collection in AGU journals will present findings from the Second REgional Carbon Cycle Assessment and Processes (RECCAP2) study with a decade of data on greenhouse gas growth.
Termite Fumigation in California Is Fueling the Rise of a Rare Greenhouse Gas
The insecticide sulfuryl fluoride isn’t included in federal or state emissions reduction goals.
New Insights on Stratospheric Circulation from Fluorine Tracers
Stratospheric fluorine species have accumulated faster in the Northern Hemisphere over the past two decades reflecting interhemispheric differences in the Brewer-Dobson transport circulation.
What Controls Nitrous Oxide Emissions from Rivers?
Statistical and numerical models show that denitrification efficiency is a key parameter controlling the production of N2O from rivers, providing a target for river restoration projects.
Phytoplankton as Emitters of Greenhouse Gases
Phytoplankton remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere; a new study reveals that marine phytoplankton can also produce greenhouse gases when exposed to ultraviolet radiation.
