The CO2 In Our Atmosphere Can Now Be Transformed Into Carbon Nanofibers 

Carbon nanofibers are an incredibly exciting material. They’ve been around for a long time, but still aren’t common, partially because they’re difficult and expensive to make. Now, a team of engineers say it figured out a simple way to make them–by sucking carbon dioxide straight out of the atmosphere. »8/19/15 5:30pm8/19/15 5:30pm

Climb Higher Than Mt. Everest, Without Leaving Manhattan

Who knew such extraordinary altitudes could be found, hidden inside the towers of Manhattan's Flatiron District? But, behind the nondescript door of a 5th-floor office on 21st Street, heights as great as the Himalayas are waiting to be scaled. Gizmodo took a deep breath and visited the atmospheric wizardry of Hypoxico »2/13/14 5:00pm2/13/14 5:00pm

CO2 Scrubber Sucks Up Emissions From Cars, Home Heating

University of Calgary scientists are working on a machine that would pull carbon dioxide from the air in an attempt to scrub out emissions from diffuse sources, such as car exhaust and home heating. These “diffuse emissions” account for roughly half of the CO2 that goes up into the sky every day, contributing to… »10/02/08 12:30am10/02/08 12:30am

Scientists Propose Adding Lime to Oceans to Reduce CO2

The oceans already absorb megatons of atmospheric carbon, but scientists say that there's a way to boost this so that CO2 levels could drop to pre-industrial age levels. The answer sounds like a cocktail recipe: add lime. Limed seawater has boosted alkalinity, which lets it absorb more CO2 and stops it from releasing… »7/21/08 12:20pm7/21/08 12:20pm
