That represents about a quarter of the monthly total of carbon released in the state from burning fossil fuels. Wildfires, and the carbon released as they burn, is a natural process. One of the expected (and […]Read More
On the heels of reports earlier this month by Australian climate scientist Tim Flannery that atmospheric concentrations of CO2 has already reached dangerous levels not expected for another decade, it is reported today that a team of international scientists have found that carbon dioxide levels jumped 35% from 2000, much faster than expected and well beyond the worst […]Read More
