Global warming is due to the enhancing greenhouse gases emission and build-up in the Earth’s environment. The gases that have an influence on the atmosphere are water vapor, carbon dioxide, dinitrogen-oxide, and methane. Almost 30 percent of incoming sunlight is reflected back into space by bright surfaces like clouds and ice.
TURNING CO2 INTO CEMENT Introduction Global climate change is a growing global problem every decade. Climate change is caused by increased greenhouse gases (namely Carbon Dioxide) being released into the atmosphere. Carbon Dioxide mainly comes from burning fossil fuels—coal, natural gas, and oil from power plants and oil refineries.
The concept of climate change has been around for quite a while. The earliest mention of climate change dates back to the 19th century. Swedish scientist, Svante Archenius was the first scientist to study the effect of CO2 on climate.Indeed, this goes to show how human activities have a great impact on the climate. The increased temperatures in the atmosphere are now becoming unbearable. This has been caused by the buildup of carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O) and fluorinated gases resulting from the release of large amounts of greenhouse gases.Climate change or colloquially known as global warming, now pose a new threat to civilization as the levels of greenhouse gases (GHG) are soaring to new levels. The most significant contributor to greenhouse gasses would be Carbon Dioxide (Co2). The levels of Carbon Dioxide (Co2) gas have risen to levels civilization has not seen before.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) conclude that the earth is warming and that humans are probably the cause. Technologies to decrease greenhouse gas emissions and strategies for carbon sequestraion have been found to be essential as species extinction has been found to be related to climate warming.Read More
The climate must continually oscillate from a glacial to an interglacial period until the total carbon dioxide amount is again increased by a change in one of the factors in the carbon dioxide balance. When the total carbon dioxide amount is reduce slightly below its present value, there is no stable state for the climate; it must continually oscillate. On the other hand, if some event should.Read More
Climate variability includes all the variations in the climate that last longer than individual weather events, whereas the term climate change only refers to those variations that persist for a longer period of time, typically decades or more. In the time since the industrial revolution the climate has increasingly been affected by human activities that are causing global warming and climate.Read More

Dear Colleagues, We are pleased to invite you to contribute an article to an upcoming Special Issue titled: “Climate Change, Carbon Capture, Storage and CO 2 Mineralisation Technologies” which will be published in Applied Sciences Journal. This special issue is open to researchers and authors that want to submit their research and review articles that explore the application of carbon.Read More
The fundamentals of the science underlying the forecast for human-induced climate change were being published and debated long before the issue rose to public prominence in the last few decades. The Warming Papers is a compendium of the classic scientific papers that constitute the foundation of the global warming forecast. The paper trail ranges from Fourier and Arrhenius in the 19th Century.Read More
It is the long-term change in seawater chemistry due to the absorption of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Roughly 30 percent of human-made CO2 is absorbed by the oceans. “Human-caused emissions of carbon dioxide fundamentally change the chemistry of seawater,” said Tessa Hill, a UC Davis professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences and at Bodega Marine Laboratory.Read More
Climate Change: CO2 Emission Climate change is arguably the greatest collective-action problem the world has ever faced (Barrett 257). It would be inevitable to completely reduce all CO2 emissions because both developed and developing countries are continuously economically developing at different rates.Read More
Human activities contribute to climate changeby causing changes in Earth’s atmosphere in the amounts of greenhouse gases, aerosols (small particles), and cloudiness. The largest known contribution comes from the burning of fossil fuels, which releases carbon dioxide gas to the atmosphere.Read More
Climate change is the long-term shift in average weather patterns across the world. Since the mid-1800s, humans have contributed to the release of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the.Read More
