It does, but globally it's negligible compared to other heat flux densities. Simply do the math: World wide primary energy consumption: 162,494 TWh (2018) Hours/year (2018): 8760 h Earth surface: 510,100,000,000,000 m² Assuming all this energy is transformed to atmospheric heating, this is an average heat flux (𝜙q=E/t*A) of 0.036 W/m². Locally this ...

OK I did a paper on mitigating climate change by enhanced weathering of rock on agricultural land for my masters (2014) it's not brilliant, but it does include some useful references if you want to research this further. I would imagine the main limiting factor in the Sahel region would be that the process needs to be wet. So you're possibly only talking ...

Its only marketing, not a science equation... It's saying that their gin gives back CO$_2$ from other gin which uses fertiliser, and saves a bit of crop space for livestock food. Overall, any crops tend deprive a region of carbon sinks and biodiversity. Cropland has reduced the worlds total CO$_2$ sinks by 50+ percent, so using 1 crop for 2 things saves CO$...

There is this NASA animation showing 12-13 years between 2002 and 2015. It is interesting for showing the counter-intuitive lowering of sea levels nearest to land based ice mass losses, especially around Greenland and Pacific Alaska. This is due to local gravitational effects, ie less ice mass reduces the pull on ocean water near where the ice melts, so ...
