These reductions will only be possible if existing plants are replaced with more efficient, and less-emitting [...]

Study on potential impacts of melting of methane hydrates

One of the abiding, but extremely potentially foreboding, uncertainties in climate science is possible positive feedback mechanisms associated with climate change. A recent study analyzes one of these mechanisms, potential melting of ocean methane hydrates, David Archer, et al., Ocean Methane Hydrates as a Slow Tipping Point in the Global Carbon Cycle, 106 Proceedings of [...]
