Arctic sea ice reaches record low, Nasa says The Arctic has lost more sea ice this year than at any time since satellite records began in Nasa says. Scientists involved in the calculations say it is part of a fundamental change.
Antarctic sea ice used to be the darling of climate doubters. Not anymore.
On August the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this natural-color image of ice in the Greenland Sea. (via Sea Ice in the Greenland Sea : Image of the Day)
Carbon storage tech. The Hellisheidi geothermal plant in Iceland injects carbon into volcanic rock. At the massive Sinopec fertilizer plant in China, CO2 is filtered and reused as fuel. In all, 16 industrial projects currently capture and store around 27 million tons of CO2, according to the International Energy Agency. That's less than 0.1 percent of global emissions—but the technology has shown promise. Current estimates hold that the world will be 6 C hotter by 2100.
