  • Combatting diseases in the greenhouse before they become visible

    A camera that maps photosynthesis, a DNA test that can measure the slightest traces of pathogens, or a precision spray system that only affects the plant and not the surrounding air… The Gezonde Kas (‘healthy greenhouse’) project has, over the last four years, allowed for the development of a sophisticated system of monitoring and disease control. It is now ready for practical ...

  • North American countries target “super” greenhouse gases

    Last night, the United States, Canada, and Mexico submitted a proposal to strengthen climate protection under the Montreal Protocol. The proposal targets the production and use of HFCs, a group of 'super' greenhouse gases. If accepted by the other Montreal Protocol Parties, the proposal would deliver climate mitigation equivalent to preventing over 100 billion tonnes of CO2 emissions. This is 10 ...

  • Industrialized Countries` Greenhouse Gases Hit Record High

    The total greenhouse gas emissions of 40 industrialized nations rose to an all-time high in 2005, continuing the upward trend of the year before, according to data submitted to the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The increases came from the continued economic growth in highly industrialized countries as well as the revived economic growth in former ...

  • Greenhouse Gases, Not El Nino, Fueled U.S. Heat in 2006

    BOULDER, Colorado, August 28, 2007 (ENS) - Greenhouse gases probably accounted for more than half of the widespread heatwave felt across the continental United States in 2006, according to a new study that will be published September 5 in 'Geophysical Research Letters,' a publication of the American Geophysical Union. Led by meteorologist Martin Hoerling at the National Oceanic ...

  • Global temperature 2008: another top-ten year

    2008 is set to be cooler globally than recent years say Met Office and University of East Anglia climate scientists, but is still forecast to be one of the top-ten warmest years. Each January the Met Office, in conjunction with the University of East Anglia, issues a forecast of the global surface temperature for the coming year. The forecast takes into account known contributing factors, such as ...

  • New York City to Cut Greenhouse Gases 30% by 2030

    New York City Council today unanimously passed legislation to require the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions throughout the five boroughs. The Climate Protection Act is intended to strengthen PlaNYC 2030, Mayor Michael Bloomberg's plan to green New York, by putting the force of law behind its goal to reduce the city’s emission of greenhouse gases. Emitted by the burning of coal, oil and gas, ...

  • Oil spray reduces greenhouse gas emissions from pig finishing barns

    Animal feeding operations are an important emission source of air pollutants including methane and carbon dioxide—known greenhouse gases. Recent inventories suggest that animal manure makes a significant contribution to global methane emissions. As a consequence, greenhouse gas emissions can potentially become a limiting factor in the development and sustainability of animal production and ...
