Coverage of greenhouse effect since April 27, 2021.

How CO2 warms Earth through the greenhouse effect and why CO2 is not saturated in Earths atmosphere

"...This explains how Earth warms, but now we must zoom in to the molecular scale to understand why this occurs. Afterall, given that the frigid vacuum of space is around -455 Farenheit (-270C), why wouldnt Earth quickly lose its incoming energy from the sun? The key is the composition of our atmosphere namely, the presence of greenhouse gases, such as CO2, which help trap heat. As explained in the timeline from our first section, the relationship between CO2 and global warming was discovered in the mid-19th century..."


Opinion: Eating bugs to save the environment

"...Across much of the research and studies on agriculture and food security, the common understanding seems to be that there must be a drastic increase in food production and a decrease in the negative environmental impacts of such production, all within the next thirty years. The United Nations predicts that the planets human population will grow to nine and a half billion by the year 2050, and subsequently, will require current food production rates to double. How can we accomplish this task without bringing on more environmental damage? It is true that small-scale farming releases much lower levels of CO into the atmosphere than their larger counterparts..."


Saskatoon explores partners for future greenhouse facility

"...A shared greenhouse has the potential to include learning, research, and community programming about native species, food security and seed bank storage, the city says..."


PAINFUL TRUTH: Why can't government act?

"...It was part of the Liberals’ ambitious plans to fight climate change. All those new trees would soak up carbon dioxide, slow the greenhouse effect, and buy us some time to wean ourselves off oil, gas, and coal..."


Guest post: The 50th anniversary of a remarkable global-warming prediction

"...Written by meteorologist John Sawyer, the paper entitled Man-made carbon dioxide and the greenhouse effect was published by the journal Nature in 1972..."


5 things you should know about the greenhouse gases warming the planet

"...Human-caused greenhouse gas emissions endanger human and environmental health, says Mark Radka, Chief of the UN Environment Programmes (UNEP) Energy and Climate Branch. And the impacts will become more widespread and severe without strong climate action. ..."


You'll see more carbon labels in the grocery store next year. Here's what they mean.

"...But Tammara Soma, assistant professor at the School of Resource and Environmental Management at Simon Fraser University, is not sold. Im cautious about initiatives that focus on making people into data consumers, says Soma. She cites best before dates, which teach consumers to trust the printed expiration label more than their own senses, leading to a lot of food waste..."


The Tragedy of Stopping Climate Change

"...Evidence of the storytelling shift is now everywhere discussions of climate change are found. The Pulitzer Prize-winning climate journalist Dan Fagin has argued that storytelling is part of the solution to the climate crisis and that journalism about it needs to be packaged in the form of a story, in the form of narrative, with characters, drama, and a connecting thread. Political scientists, economists, and sociologists also increasingly place climate change in the context of the meaning-making narratives by which societies organize themselves..."


LETTER: LNG's economic benefits outweighed by damage to climate

"...A study supported by the BC Oil & Gas Commission proved the methane leakage from gas wells is more than twice as much as measured formerly. Methane is a huge contributor to the greenhouse effect and we should be treating “natural” gas with the same regard as coal – a dirty fossil fuel. Supplying the enormous amount of gas for the Nass project would mean intolerable amounts of fracking in our beautiful northern lands and huge releases of methane to our already overburdened atmosphere..."


Scientists offered using methanol in power generation for electric cars

"...According to scientists, given the current level of oil and gas consumption, these sources of energy will be enough for mankind for the next 60 years. At the same time, the development of new deposits of fossil fuels leads to the degradation of production areas, including the Arctic, to the melting of permafrost and the release of colossal volumes of methane. This enhances the greenhouse effect and ozone depletion..."


Lessening the cost of strategies to reach the Paris Agreement

"...Five researchers shed new light on a key argument to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG): they provided the first economic analysis of conversion factors of other GHG like methane into their CO2 equivalent in overshoot scenarios. Although the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) considers settling for one value of reference (known as "Common Metric") to make this conversion among the Paris Agreement, the models presented here show the economic advantage of flexibility between various factors of conversion. "A key notion in the UNFCCC is to reduce GHG emissions in the least costly way so as to ensure global benefits" highlights Katsumasa Tanaka, primary author of the Science Advances study..."


Ancient Mars may have icy clouds to thank for its liquid water

"...High-altitude icy clouds may have allowed ancient Mars to host rivers and lakes by warming the planet via a greenhouse effect, according to the results of a new study. The theory could be tested by NASAs Perseverance rover, which is currently actively exploring the surface of the Red Planet. One of the greatest unsolved mysteries in our Solar System is the question of how Mars transformed from a world capable of harboring vast lakes and possibly life to the inhospitable barren planet that we know today..."
