Mapping Greenhouse Gases on the Great Lakes

We’re Oceanographers in this lab and particularly we study ocean chemistry. Now this project that were working on here it’s, it’s not in the oceans it’s, it’s in the largest liquid freshwater environment on the planet that being the Great Lakes system and and what better place to do that research then at the University […]

Greenhouse gases hit new high in 2018: WMO

‘Revolutionary’ CO2 maps zoom in on greenhouse gas sources

>>This video presents results from the Vulcan Project, an effort to quantify fossil fuel CO2 emissions over the United States in high space and time resolution. We’ll also be showing those emissions transported through the atmosphere using an atmospheric transport model. Many people have contributed to the Vulcan Project, including researchers at Purdue University, Colorado […]

Greenhouse gas study at Imperial

I’m doctor Heather Graven I’m a lecturer in the physics department here at Imperial College London and I’m leading a research group studying greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. so we’re here on the roof of the Huxley building at Imperial College London about 24 metres up and we’re measuring greenhouse gases carbon dioxide and methane. […]

What Is Greenhouse Gas?

Growing up I thought the greenhouse effect was caused by hairspray, but now I know that only style can be caused by hair spray…and OK. Harmful greenhouse gases too. So, what is greenhouse gas anyway? OK. Greenhouse gas is not one particular gas. It’s actually numerous different types of gases; water vapor, methane, carbon dioxide, […]

How Seaweed Could Slow Down Climate Change

We are hooked on meat. We chop, slice, and sink our teeth into it, it’s rooted in our genes and culture, and globally speaking, appetites are on the rise. The average amount of meat consumed per person has nearly doubled in the past 50 years. And this demand is putting an incredible amount of pressure […]

Smart greenhouse systems boost production, cut expenses

Korean researchers have developed a smart greenhouse system that increases production by making good use of an energy source you’d never expect. Park Se-young has more. This greenhouse produces moth orchids, a popular gift, even if sales aren’t that strong these days. But the orchid growers have high expectations for this year, thanks to a […]

Advancing collaboration between forest and oil and gas sectors

The forest sector and oil and gas industries are cornerstones of Canada’s economy. But how can these industries work together and learn from each other to build a future that is more innovative and environmentally responsible? Natural Resources Canada’s Canadian Forest Service is finding innovative ways to get more value from trees. Introducing FOR-C. The […]

Cow Burps Are Warming the Planet

Thanks to CuriosityStream for supporting PBS Digital Studios. If you grew up in suburbia like me, you might not have ever considered the fact that cows are pretty gassy creatures. Just ask the German farmer who in 2014 had to deal with a slight exploding shed problem, thanks to his dairy cattle’s burps. Turns out […]

‘Hey Bill Nye, Is There a Conspiracy to Cover Up Agricultural Climate Change?’ #TuesdaysWithBill

Batman: Hello Bill. I’m Batman and I’m a big fan. My question to you is why isn’t the agricultural sector especially with the cows being addressed with global warming with as much media attention as oil companies seeing as it is actually the biggest factor affecting global warming. At this day and age do you […]
