Nitrous oxide News

eggs 14th May 2012 Food For Thought
Dave Reay, of Edinburgh University and GHGonline, and colleagues in Europe and the US have estimated the large greenhouse gas emissions cuts made possible by reducing food waste.

. cows 14th July 2004 Historic Hint
David Beerling and colleagues at Sheffield and Bristol Universities, have cited the role that the non-carbon dioxide gases, like methane and nitrous oxide, played in past global warming and warned about ignoring them.

 

Dave Reay 28th July 2003 Lettuce Tunnel Science
GHGonline.org editor Dave Reay, talks to BBC Radio 4's 'Leading Edge' program about nitrous oxide and current efforts to better quantify emissions of this powerful greenhouse gas from agriculture.

Richard Betts of the Hadley Centre, UK, has warned of the effects of elevated carbon dioxide on soil water levels. Less water loss from plants may mean more flooding and more GHG emission from soils.

Paul Day, an industrial chemist from Kent, UK, has developed a fuel which could help cut vehicle GHG emissions. The fuel is based on a mixture of diesel, bean oil and water and has been named Aquafuel.
