Study shows how coal-to-liquid fuel technologies, if done right, could help reduce America's greenhouse gas emissions and dependency on foreign oil.
From snatching carbon dioxide (CO2) out of the air like trees do, to launching giant mirrors into space, scientists are researching a wide variety of technologies to artificially slow global warming.
The atmosphere isn't the only place carbon dioxide caused by human activity goes.
By looking below ground, to the roots of plants, we can learn to anticipate fluctuations of seasonal carbon dioxide shifts.
Carbon capture and sequestration or CCS is a technology that can remove carbon dioxide emitted by a power plant and store it underground. Climate Central visits the site of a proposed coal plant in Linden, NJ to find out how it is done.
Coal generates carbon dioxide when combusted, which is causing the world to warm. In Georgia, a state that gets over 60 percent of its electricity from coal, some coastal residents are connecting the dots between coal and changes in the local ecology and economy attributed to global warming.
