    A boy uses a magnifying glass to look at a screen showing the amount of carbon dioxide emissions to generate electricity in various ways, at a nuclear museum beside the Chubu Electric Power's Hamaoka Nuclear Power Station in Omaezaki, Shizuoka Prefecture, May 5, 2011. Chubu Electric Power Co said it is not committed to its presumed July restart of the No.3 reactor at its Hamaoka plant in central Japan while comments by the area's prefectural governor suggest political obstacles may delay the restart. The Hamaoka plant, 200 km (124 miles) southwest of Tokyo, sits near an active earthquake zone that the government has forecast carries an 87 percent chance of producing a magnitude-8 or stronger earthquake in the next 30 years.

    Newly found buried deposit of frozen carbon dioxide found near the south pole of Mars

    A newly found, buried deposit of frozen carbon dioxide -- dry ice -- near the south pole of Mars is shown in this image released by NASA April 21, 2011, contains about 30 times more carbon dioxide than previously estimated to be frozen near the pole. This map color-codes thickness estimates of the deposit derived and extrapolated from observations by the Shallow Subsurface Radar (SHARAD) instrument on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Red corresponds to about 600 meters thick, yellow to about 400; dark blue to less than 100, tapering to zero. The scale bar at lower right is 100 kilometers (62 miles). The background map, in muted colors, represents different geological materials near the south pole. SHARAD was provided by the Italian Space Agency. Its operations are led by Sapienza University of Rome, and its data are analyzed by a joint U.S.-Italian science team. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

The project ?Restoring peatlands and applying concepts for sustainable management in Belarus ? climate change mitigation with economic and biodiversity benefits? has been running in the country since September 2008. The project will rewet over 14,000 hectares of degraded peatland, and quantify greenhouse gas emission reductions, participants said. REUTERS/Vasily Fedosenko (BELARUS - Tags: ENVIRONMENT)

    Contrails are seen over Horse Guards Parade in London in this November 11, 2006 file photo. Aircraft condensation trails criss-crossing the sky may be warming the planet on a normal day more than the carbon dioxide emitted by all planes since the Wright Brothers' first flight in 1903, a study said on Tuesday. It indicated that contrails -- white lines of vapour left by jet engines -- also have big knock-on effects by adding to the formation of high-altitude, heat-trapping cirrus clouds as the lines break up.

    A worker checks solar panels on the roof of a building in the Hong Kong Electric Lamma island power plant July 29 ,2010. The solar panels in the plant can supply around 620,000 units of electricity to 150 families for one year, and offset around 520 tonnes of carbon dioxide emission. According to The Hong Kong Electric Company, the solar panels also make up the largest solar energy system in Hong Kong. REUTERS/Tyrone Siu (CHINA - Tags: ENERGY ENVIRONMENT BUSINESS)

    A staff member at an animal welfare centre presses a button to inject carbon dioxide into a "dream box", the metal container where stray and abandoned dogs are put to death, while the monitor shows the inside of the box before the death process at the centre in Tokushima, about 600 km (373 miles) southwest of Tokyo, March 11, 2010. It's a dog's life for a stray mutt in any country, but in Japan a canine that ends up in the municipal pound is far more likely to be put down than to find a new home. Picture taken March 11, 2010.

    Dogs are monitored after being herded into a metal container euphemistically called a "dream box," where stray dogs are asphyxiated with carbon dioxide gas, at an animal welfare centre in Tokushima, about 600 km (373 miles) southwest of Tokyo, March 11, 2010. It's a dog's life for a stray mutt in any country, but in Japan a canine that ends up in the municipal pound is far more likely to be put down than to find a new home. While in some other industrialised countries the idea of "saving" a pet from a shelter is well-established, in Japan animal welfare activists say strays often fall foul of an attitude that prizes puppies and pedigrees as status symbols.

The trees which trap quantities of the carbon dioxide that is warming the planet are sold as living carbon traps or "sinks" rather than cut for timber, a model that could go global. But the prospect of a worldwide market could also attract hustlers eager to make a quick buck without making a difference to the planet. Photo taken July 27, 2009.
