Battlefield Byproduct Damages Lungs

The high concentrations of nitrogen dioxide gas produced following fires, explosions of military munitions or detonations of terrorist devices can cause serious lung damage, even if the exposure is brief, said scientists at last week’s national meeting of the American Chemical Society. The researchers, from the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, reached their conclusion […]

Pine Trees Not “Green”

Landowners in the southern United States who are planting pine plantations may be contributing to rising carbon dioxide levels, says a study from Ohio State University. The researchers said that while planting trees is generally considered to be environmentally beneficial, pine plantations are in fact not that helpful. This is because pine plantations don’t retain […]

Feedback Loop Puts The Heat On Climate Predictions

Researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California believe they can quantify the effects of climate feedback-loops using past increases in natural carbon dioxide and methane gas levels as a guide. Worryingly, their results point to global temperatures at the end of this century that may be significantly higher than current […]

MOF Power

Cars that run on hydrogen rather than gasoline are closer to becoming a reality, as researchers at UCLA and the University of Michigan show how significant amounts of hydrogen fuel can be stored efficiently in a remarkable new material. The ground-breaking new study, set to be published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, […]
