Attacking global warming by adding CO2 to the atmosphere?

"We need to cut emissions, but they are rising for both carbon dioxide and methane. We need to explore other ways to remove greenhouse gases after they’re in the atmosphere," says Rob Jackson.

Scientists want to limit climate change by releasing more CO2

Stanford scientists argue that we can limit warming by chemically converting methane to carbon dioxide. “Our paper is a call to view methane removal as an opportunity,” says lead author Rob Jackson. Navigate to Scientists want to limit climate change by releasing more CO2

New methane capture method could reduce global warming by one-sixth

New Stanford research proposes a method for atmospheric capture of methane to alleviate warming and buy more time to tackle the bigger CO2 problem.

The challenge of lowering greenhouse gas emissions on farms

“Methane emissions are a big deal. About a sixth of the warming that we’ve had since the start of the Industrial Revolution has been caused by methane,” says Rob Jackson.

The methane detectives: On the trail of a global warming mystery

Research co-authored by Stanford Earth's Adam Brandt suggests that more than half the volume of all methane emissions from natural gas come from just the largest 5 percent of leaks. Navigate to The methane detectives: On the trail of a global warming mystery

The simple yet elusive key to fighting the climate crisis: More trees

“The success of corporate zero-deforestation pledges largely depends on the presence of supportive public policies that create an enabling environment,” says Eric Lambin.

Is the Impossible Whopper really healthier than a meat patty?

"People do need to understand that the impact of meat-based agriculture is really large and, personally, I'm thrilled to see range of options to help address the issue," says Stanford's Chris Field. Navigate to Is the Impossible Whopper really healthier than a meat patty?

Global warming heats up the income gaps

We get the rising temperatures and higher sea levels, but economic inequality from global warming? Yes, say scientists. Noah Diffenbaugh discusses the research with radio host Geoffrey Riley.
