Mangrove protection and restoration could be an economic way of mitigating greenhouse gases to curb global warming, research suggests.
British researchers have developed a porous material that can preferentially soak up carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Green Groups are turning to social networking to drive their campaign for Earth Hour.
A mind boggling theory has been put forward by Lars-Georg Hersoug, a researcher of Denmark, who say that the increase in obese people in his country is roughly equivalent to the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
