Ocean acidification may contribute to global shellfish decline
Relatively minor increases in ocean acidity brought about by high levels of carbon dioxide have significant detrimental effects on the growth, development, and survival of hard clams, bay scallops, and Eastern oysters, according to researchers at Stony Brook University's School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences. View News Article (2009-10-27)

Global warming plus natural bacteria could release vast carbon deposits currently stored in Arctic soil
Increasing concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will make global temperatures rise. By studying soil cores from the Arctic, scientists have discovered that this rise in temperature stimulates the growth of microorganisms that can break down long-term stores of carbon, releasing them into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide. This will lead to further increases in global temperatures. View News Article (2005-05-05)

Field study shows why food quality will suffer with rising CO2
For the first time, a field test has demonstrated that elevated levels of carbon dioxide inhibit plants' assimilation of nitrate into proteins, indicating that the nutritional quality of food crops is at risk as climate change intensifies. View News Article (2014-04-07)

Scrambling for climate change solutions
The food industry generates a lot of waste products, but one of these, eggshells, could help combat climate change, according to research published in the International Journal of Global Warming this month. View News Article (2010-10-27)

Jumping snails left grounded in future oceans
Sea snails that leap to escape their predators may soon lose their extraordinary jumping ability because of rising human carbon dioxide emissions, a team of international scientists has discovered. View News Article (2014-01-07)

Seeing the forest and the trees helps cut atmospheric carbon dioxide
Putting a price tag on carbon dioxide emitted by different land use practices could dramatically change the way that land is used - forests become increasingly valuable for storing carbon and overall carbon emissions reductions become cheaper, according to research presented today at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. View News Article (2009-02-13)

Best way to pour champagne? 'Down the side' wins first scientific test
In a study that may settle a long-standing disagreement over the best way to pour a glass of champagne, scientists in France are reporting that pouring bubbly in an angled, down-the-side way is best for preserving its taste and fizz.  View News Article (2010-08-12)

Climate gas could disrupt food chain
Levels of a climate cooling gas will change as carbon dioxide increases, affecting food webs along the way, said Dr Michael Steinke at a Science Media Centre press briefing today. View News Article (2007-12-11)

Loose grip
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is contained in the air we exhale, and is also always formed when carbon-containing substances such as oil, gas, wood, and plastics are burned - it is omnipres-ent. Chemists have long been trying to convert this gas to something useful, and Koji Tanaka and coworkers from the Institute for Molecular Science in Myodaiji, Japan, have now taken an interesting step in this...

Fjords are 'hotspots' in global carbon cycling
While fjords are celebrated for their beauty, these ecosystems are also major carbon sinks that likely play an important role in the regulation of the planet's climate, new research reveals.  View News Article (2015-05-05)
