Long-term carbon storage in Ganges basin may portend global warming worseningScienceDaily.com | 09 Nov 2011
Scientists have found that carbon is stored in the soils and sediments of the Ganges-Brahmaputra basin for a surprisingly long time, making it likely that global warming could destabilize the pool of carbon there and in similar places on Earth, potentially increasing the rate of CO2 release into the atmosphere.
It's "make or break" for Europe CCS: ShellReuters | 02 Nov 2011
LONDON (Reuters) - Carbon capture and storage (CCS) in the European Union is at a crossroads as to whether it will succeed or fail as a key technology to fight climate change, a senior executive at oil giant Royal Dutch Shell told Reuters.
The last stand of the AmazonGuardian Unlimited | 02 Apr 2011
Novelist Edward Docx has spent almost a decade travelling to the Amazon, watching as multinational companies ravage the land he loves. Here is his heartfelt dispatch on the forest's final frontier - still home to as many as 100 tribes of uncontacted Indians. In the forest, there are no horizons and so the dawn does not break but is instead born in the trees – a wan and smoky blue. I twist in my hammock.
Use funds to conserve fittest corals, say ecologistsNew Scientist | 30 Mar 2011
As climate change intensifies, some species are showing themselves ill-equipped to survive it. Coral ecologists are now arguing that such species should drop down the list of conservation priorities – even if they typify the species-rich hotspots that are the poster children of conservation efforts.
