Giant herbivorous sauropod dinosaurs may have produced enough greenhouse gas with their flatulence as research suggests.
The cleanliness of natural gas is largely based on its lower carbon dioxide emissions when burned.
Cattle and other ruminant animals are thought to be responsible for around one-fifth of the world’s greenhouse methane gas production but the precise amount has proved difficult to quantify.
The abrupt rise in shale gas exploration around the globe is due to the increase demand of gas energy , prompting concerns about the impact of the technology.
Shale gas extraction could come up emitting greenhouse gases to the atmosphere in two scenarios, one is when gas is burned and it produces carbon dioxide, second is when methane gas leaks out while the well is being tapped.
The discovery of Eris and the presumption that it was bigger than Pluto, pushed the Astronomical Union to come up with a new definition of ‘planet’ that has excluded Pluto.
The common trend that has been going on is that companies build their large computing centers, referred as server farms in large urban areas or its outskirts.
In a February 2007 report by the world’s foremost authority on climate change – the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). In their first of six reports, the IPCC has this to say ” fossil fuel pollution would raise temperature this century, worsen floods, droughts, hurricanes, melt polar ice and damage the climate system for a thousand years.”
