Op-Ed: The Arctic's huge store of methane gas: 'Ticking time-bomb?'

Some climate change proponents are saying the huge amounts of methane gas, stored under the Arctic ice is a potential "ticking time bomb." They claim that we must stop extracting fossil fuels that put more CO2 into our atmosphere or face disaster.

NASA successfully launches a carbon monitoring satellite

NASA tried a second time to launch a satellite into orbit to study how the earth absorbs carbon dioxide, which has increased over time and has been the primary cause of global warming.

As interest in Earth's changing climate heats up, a tiny dark particle is stepping into the limelight: black carbon. Commonly known as soot, black carbon enters the air when fossil fuels and biofuels, such as coal, wood, and diesel are burned. Black carbon is found worldwide, but its presence and impact are particularly strong in Asia.
