The life-cycle of soil microbes in warmer temperatures appears to affect soil carbon storage. The slower the rate of growth, the more carbon that is released into the atmosphere. A new study suggests that a change is taking place.
The sky may appear to be extra shimmery this weekend, because of a solar storm that's on its way. Due to hit Earth's magnetic field on Saturday, experts say the storm started on Thursday when the sun unleashed a massive flare.

A large quantity of nitrogen compounds emitted into the atmosphere by humans through the burning of fossil fuels and the use of nitrogen fertilizers enters the oceans and may lead to the removal of some carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
"We estimate that the sun contributed as much as 45–50% of the 1900–2000 global warming, and 25–35% of the 1980–2000 global warming. Even the IPCC estimates that there has been a warming influence from the Sun."
New data from Hubble and ground based telescopes is starting to figure out Jupiter’s eternal clouds. It’s taken a while to understand how our gigantic neighbor operates. Two “eruptions” have created storms in the atmosphere.
These two images show a section of the sun as seen by NASA's Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph, or IRIS, on the right and NASA's SDO on the left. The IRIS image provides scientists with unprecedented detail of the lowest parts of the sun's atmosphere, known as the interface region
