Ancient Amazon Indians 'Biochar' Suppresses Nitrous Oxide from Cattle

GreenTracker| In early 2010 scientists reported that ‘biochar’ — a material that the Amazonian Indians used to improve soil fertility centuries ago — might be an asset in the fight against global warming. Biochar as charcoal can be produced by heating wood, grass, cornstalks or other organic matter in the absence of oxygen.

This month scientists in New Zealand report that using biochar in the soil could be used to supress nitrous oxide from livestock. Over a period of 86 days biochar effectively suppressed the nitrous oxide patches produced by cattle urine by 70%. The researchers say the addition of biochar into the soil left no detrimental

Aerosols Currently Contain Negative Impact Of Emissions Argues New Climate Change Research

GreenTracker| New University of Washington research shows that the world is committed to a path of global warming, even if all emissions were stopped right now. Temperatures would remain higher than pre-Industrial Revolution days because the greenhouse gases already emitted will probably persist for thousands of years in the atmosphere.

Atmospheric particles called aerosols actually help to contain global warming by reflecting sunlight back into space.

Trudie Styler & Environmental Activists Win Amazon Case Against Chevron | Texaco

GreenTracker| Texaco, which merged with Chevron in 2001, says it will appeal the ruling in an Ecuador court fining the oil giant $9 billion for polluting a significant part of the country’s Amazon region. Chevron is accused of dumping billions of gallons of toxic materials into unlined pits and Amazon rivers.

The lawsuit brought on behalf of 30,000 Ecuadoreans has already dragged on for nearly two decades.

Digging into our archives, Anne’s memory is correct. Sting’s wife Trudie Styler has acted as a primary activist on this issue, driving the 20-year-long fight for environmental justice in the Amazon.

Trudi Styler’s 2009 project ‘Crude’, presented at Sundance in 2009 with director Joe Berlinger, deals with this lawsuit.

'Angel' White Challenges Science of Ocean Garbage Dump, Garbage Patch Claims

via Oprah.comGreenTracker| Oregon State assistant professor of oceanography Angelicque ‘Angel’ White has leveled serious claims against the widespread assertion that the ‘Great Garbage Patch’ between California and Japan is twice the size of Texas.

White also damns assertions that the oceans are filled with more plastic than plankton.

“There is no doubt that the amount of plastic in the world’s oceans is troubling, but this kind of exaggeration undermines the credibility of scientists,” White said.

Plastics Recycling Technology Breakthrough | Plastic Bags Banned in Italy

GreenTracker| Italian Environmental Minister Stefania Prestigiacomo has confirmed that a ban on non-biodegradable, single-use bags will take effect on January 1, 2011, for all of Italy. The ban, originally announced for New Year’s Day 2010 was delayed a year to give the industry time for transition.

While the plastic industry protests that nowhere else in Europe has such a ban, 73% of Italians reported that they would use alternatives to single-use, non-biodegradable plastic bags when shopping, says Treehugger.

Ocean's Growing Hypoxic Zones Threaten Tuna & Billfish Supplies

GreenTracker| Scientists are concerned that billfish and tuna are becoming more vulnerable to overfishing, as an expanding zone of low oxygen, known as a hypoxic zone and located in the Atantic ocean, is forcing them into shallower waters where they are more likely to be caught.

Acknowledging that hypoxic zones do occur naturally in many areas of the world’s tropical and equatorial oceans, scientists believe they are expanding as sea temperatures rise.

First Model Confirms 'Cloud Feedback' Effect | Negates Climate Skeptics

GreenTracker| Professor Andrew Dessler has modeled the effect called ‘cloud feedback’, in which changes in clouds amplify warming of the planet by trapping more heat, which in turn leads to even more warming. The successful ‘cloud feedback’ modeling project contradicts some climate skeptics who argue that clouds act to stabilize climate.

Global Carbon Emissions Drop Far Less Than Predicted in Economic Downturn

GreenTracker| Global warming experts believed that one positive benefit of the global recession would be a ‘breather’ from the rapid escalation of global carbon dioxide CO2 emissions — the main contributor to global warming, if you believe that global warming actually exists.

In reality, it appears that the burning of fossil fuel in 2009 was only 1.3 percent below the record 2008 figures, less than half the drop predicted.

Study Suggests World's Forest Can -- and Did -- Adapt to Climate Change

GreenTracker| A new study by Carlos Jaramillo, a scientist at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, suggests that ancient rainforests and today’s trees are hardier than previously believed, in adapting to climate change.

Studying pollen grains and other biological indicators of plant life in rocks 56 milliion years old, Jaramillo’s team concluded that forests bloomed with diversity during an abrupt period of global warming called the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum. CO2 levels had doubled in 10,000 years and global temperatures increased by 3C-5C for 200,000 years.

Study | Carbon Dioxide Levels & Global Warming 40 Million Years Ago

GreenTracker| In the complex arguments around what causes global warming and what humans should do about it is the historical, scientific reality that huge temperature changes have impacted the planet in earlier cycles of history. Humans had no direct responsibility in causing those changes.

Variations in atmosphere carbon dioxide around 40 million years ago were tightly linked to major variations in global temperature, according to new findings published in the journal Science. Authors of the new study focused on one of the hottest episodes of Earth’s climate history — the Middle Eocene Climatic Optimum (MECO), which occurred around 40 million years ago.

Is Earth's Thinning Ozone Layer Causing Whales To Sunburn?

GreenTracker| The Washington Post reports a 56 percent increase from 2007 to 2009 in observed cases of sunburn on whales by researchers at the Institute of Zoology in London. Because whales must come to the surface to breathe, to socialise and to feed their young, they have frequent exposure to the sun and to the Earth’s thinning ozone layer.

Previously, sunburn was considered only a human condition, continues the Daily Mail. But whales and dolphins have smooth, fur-free skin, unlike their furry seal relatives. Read on a very interesting article on sunburn in animals: Why whales get sunburn, but pigs and hippos don’t.
