Global methane levels on the rise again

After eight years of near-zero growth in atmospheric methane concentrations, levels have again started to rise. "This is not good news for future global warming," says CSIRO's Dr Paul Fraser, who co-authored a paper to be published in Geophysical Research Letters, a journal of the American Geo...

Methane gas levels begin to increase again

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. The amount of methane in Earth's atmosphere shot up in 2007, bringing to an end a period of about a decade in which atmospheric levels of the potent greenhouse gas were essentially stable, according to a team led by MIT researchers. Methane levels in the atmosphere have more t...

Now, self-healing materials can mimic human skin, healing again and again
