New model revises estimates of terrestrial carbon dioxide uptake
Researchers at the University of Illinois have developed a new model of global carbon and nitrogen cycling that will fundamentally transform the understanding of how plants and soils interact with a changing atmosphere and climate. View News Article (2007-12-12)

Emissions rising faster this decade than last
The latest figures on the global carbon budget to be released in Washington and Paris today indicate a four-fold increase in growth rate of human-generated carbon dioxide emissions since 2000. View News Article (2008-10-02)

Late Cretaceous Period was likely ice-free
For years, scientists have thought that a continental ice sheet formed during the Late Cretaceous Period more than 90 million years ago when the climate was much warmer than it is today. View News Article (2013-09-25)

An ancient Earth like ours
An international team of scientists including Mark Williams and Jan Zalasiewicz of the Geology Department of the University of Leicester, and led by Dr. Thijs Vandenbroucke, formerly of Leicester and now at the University of Lille 1 (France), has reconstructed the Earth's climate belts of the late Ordovician Period, between 460 and 445 million years ago.  View News Article (2010-08-10)

Harvard and U. Pittsburgh researchers explain carbon monoxide's anti-inflammatory effects
In a study appearing in the April 2007 issue of The FASEB Journal, scientists from Harvard University and the University of Pittsburgh have shown for the first time that the anti-inflammatory effects of carbon monoxide originate within cells' own molecular engines, mitochondria. View News Article (2007-03-30)

Mice use specialized neurons to detect carbon dioxide in the air
For mice, carbon dioxide often means danger - too many animals breathing in too small a space or a hungry predator exhaling nearby. View News Article (2007-08-17)

Emissions irrelevant to future climate change?
Climate change and the carbon emissions seem inextricably linked. However, new research published in BioMed Central's open access journal Carbon Balance and Management suggests that this may not always hold true, although it may be some time before we reach this saturation point. View News Article (2008-04-28)

Extreme global warming in the ancient past
Variations in atmosphere carbon dioxide around 40 million years ago were tightly coupled to changes in global temperature, according to new findings published in the journal Science.  View News Article (2010-11-11)

Why is Greenland covered in ice?
There have been many reports in the media about the effects of global warming on the Greenland ice-sheet, but there is still great uncertainty as to why there is an ice-sheet there at all. View News Article (2008-08-28)

Before selling carbon credits, read this
Storing carbon in agricultural soils presents an immediate option to reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide and slow global warming. View News Article (2007-05-21)
