And what I'm noticing is that if the strength of these storms is because of greenhouse gases, we're screwed. I say that because more and more studies are finding that greenhouse gases are not just released by cars and power plants. Methane for example.

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) - It's billed as a clean, green source of electricity - it's what lights up most of our province - but a new study out of Washington State University raises some serious concerns about our reliance on hydroelectric power.
A chicken-processing facility, a cereal factory, an incinerator and two landfills are among Lancaster County's eight largest industrial emitters of greenhouse gases. Please register for complete access to LancasterOnline.com. Please activate your ...
The world's first comprehensive climate treaty has passed the thresholds needed to come into legal force, the UN climate body has said.

San Francisco (KPIX 5) - California Gov. Jerry Brown and his predecessor Arnold Schwarzenegger were side by side in the state Capitol championing California's efforts to curb greenhouse gases. "Do you want to be strapped with your mouth to an ...
Only lately have researchers started to look at reservoirs impact on greenhouse gases.' Unlike natural water bodies, reservoirs tend to have flooded large amounts of organic matter that produce carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide as they decompose.
Why are some gases greenhouse gases while others aren't? A heat plume rises from a methane gas burner at the Kate Valley landfill site, North Canterbury.
15 House science Committee hearing on methane regulations was derailed by a dispute over whether natural gas actually offers an improvement over coal in terms of greenhouse gases. Natural gas releases less carbon dioxide when it's burned at a power ...
farmers are big emitters because they are big users of products that produce greenhouse gases, including gasoline and diesel to run equipment, nitrogen fertilizer to boost crop yields and propane and natural gas to heat barns and dry grain.
The concept behind hydroelectric power is simple: Rather than combusting fossil fuels, like coal, oil, or natural gas, which put over 52 million kilotons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere each year, dams block the water flowing in rivers or lakes ...
Hydropower reservoirs are considered to be major sources of low-carbon electricity that can be used to cut greenhouse gas emissions to combat climate change.
scientists have long known that reservoirs emit some greenhouse gases into the atmosphere because decomposing plant matter submerged under water releases methane, carbon dioxide and other gases.
Just to put that into perspective, we're talking about something that's been spewing roughly 1 gigaton (1 billion tons) of carbon dioxide a year, and 1.3 percent of all greenhouse gases produced by humans, into our atmosphere this whole time - and we ...
Usually thought of as carbon-neutral sources of energy, hydropower dams, while far cleaner than fossil fuel for generating power, nonetheless are sources of carbon pollution.
The cause of the emergency, she said, was toxic ozone - a byproduct of pollution from greenhouse gases - in combination with a lingering smell of fresh grass clippings at his school.
The rules by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency would reduce greenhouse gases that cause global warming: gases like carbon dioxide from coal-burning power plants and methane from oil & gas well operations.
Editor's Note: Energy Briefs is a weekly recollection of local, regional and national news regarding some of the most intriguing news updates on energy, water and the environment.
Based on that analysis, she found that future long-term warming induced by greenhouse gases could be more severe than many previous estimates.
environmentalists today are in a panic about greenhouse gases, but between 1.8 billion and 800 million years ago, microscopic ocean dwellers really needed them.
U.N. prepares to implement treaty on greenhouse gases. Morocco will host meeting to decide on details, funding. By MICHAEL ASTOR The Associated Press.
International pressure for action to curb the use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), the potent greenhouse gases used in refrigerators and air conditioning, is mounting after a coalition of more than 100 countries issued a call for their early phase-out.
From Glaciers to greenhouse gases, New technology Emerges. Kalispell native Kendra Kuhl recognized as top innovator in research to convert carbon dioxide into useful products.

Compared to traditional petroleum-based Jet-A fuel, renewable options can significantly reduce emissions, including pollutants related to air quality as well as net greenhouse gases. Renewable jet fuel is chemically equivalent to conventional Jet-A ...
Coal can emit dust, sulphur dioxide and nitrous oxides, but when it comes to greenhouse gases, there is no commercially available technology that can do anything about it.
greenhouse gases represent a modern source of warming that can also drive radiative forcing. That makes the drought conditions in California all the more precarious, as now there's less need for a change in sun spot activity or the Earth's orbit to ...
If the federal 'Clean Power Plan' were to be struck down, it would become more difficult for the US, one of the world's largest emitters of harmful greenhouse gases, to meet its emissions reduction goals.
