Op-Ed: Dangerous — Warming soils to release billions of tons of carbon?

Sydney - University of Exeter research indicates that warmed-up soils could release up to 50- 230 billion tons of carbon. This is also a possible source of a lot of added heat as a result. That much carbon could deliver major temperature rises.

Op-Ed: CO2 poisoning, oxygen availability, and emerging health risks

Sydney - George Floyd isn’t the only one who can’t breathe. Vast amounts of carbon CO2 are bad for you. Reduced oxygen availability and billions of tons of carbon still entering the air are making it hard for anyone to breathe.

How forests play a vital role in the carbon cycle

Carbon is an abundant element that is necessary for life on Earth. Carbon atoms can be found in not only plants and animals but in rocks, soil, water, and even the air we breathe. But an overabundance of carbon, in the form of carbon dioxide, is deadly.

Scientist — A sixth mass extinction of marine species is possible

If humans go on burning fossil fuels, a sixth mass marine extinction will be the inevitable result. By the year 2100, we will have added so much carbon to the world's oceans that the critical threshold will be reached.

Study confirms the release of ancient carbon in Arctic permafrost

Researchers have confirmed that ancient greenhouse gasses locked away in Arctic permafrost are seeping free as the Arctic region warms up faster than any other place on Earth.

Op-Ed: NOAA 2014 study — Humans definitely influencing climate

Sydney - A new study called “Explaining Extreme Events of 2014 from a Climate Perspective” has definitely added some heat to the climate debate. This is going to be another highly controversial report. Pity of it is nothing new will be said about it.

Study: Whale poop vital to ocean's carbon cycle

Saving endangered species of whales could boost the carbon "storage space" of the Oceans, according to a recent study of whale feces by Stephen Nicol.

Fish Guts Explain Marine Carbon Cycle Mystery

Research by the University of Exeter reveals the major influence of fish on maintaining the delicate pH balance of our oceans, vital for the health of coral reefs and other marine life.
