New Research Reveals Climate Warming 55 MYA was Geologically Instantaneous

New research into past changes in climate indicates that global warming can take place much more suddenly than previously thought – over the course of only about 13 years. Temperatures at high latitudes rose as much as 8ºC (14ºF) and oceans warmed from surface to bottom some 55 million years ago during what’s known as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM)….

A Project Revived: Shell Looks Into Feasibility Of Adding Limestone To Oceans To Combat CO2

Adding lime to sea water helps dramatically reduce CO2 levels in the atmosphere, according to new scientific research which is being funded by Shell. Lime increases alkalinity in the water, which boosts its ability to absorb CO2. It also reduces the water’s tendency to release the CO2 back into the atmosphere again. Shell is funding a feasibility study into the logistics of large scale…
