    The new Aston Martin DBS is seen at the Frankfurt International Auto Show IAA in Frankfurt in this September 11, 2007 file photo. As Europe's giant car makers do battle with environmentalists and lawmakers over emissions curbs, makers of classic European sports cars like the Aston Martin DB9, Ferrari F430 and Porsche 911 are struggling to be heard. Environmentalists say today's supercars, with huge engines pumping out up to three times as much carbon dioxide (CO2) as the average vehicle, have no place in a world struggling to rein in climate change. But Lamborghini and its rivals argue that theirs is a rare art that needs protecting, blending timeless European design elements with cutting-edge technologies that themselves can help save the planet.

    Guillermo Berra, a researcher at the National Institute of Agricultural Technology, adjusts a plastic tank on the back of a cow at their farm in Castelar, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, in this picture taken July 4, 2008. Argentine scientists are taking a novel approach to studying global warming, strapping plastic tanks to the backs of cows to collect their burps. Researchers say the slow digestive system of cows makes them a producer of methane, a potent greenhouse gas that gets far less public attention than carbon dioxide in efforts to fight global warming.

    The Boston Red Sox unveiled 28 solar hot water panels atop Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts May 19, 2008, which will help heat water throughout the facility. According to Bonneville Environmental Foundation, the installation of the panels will also help avoid 18 tons of Carbon Dioxide or CO2 emissions each year. Offsetting 18 Tons of CO2 is the environmental equivalent of planting 4.86 acres of trees, not driving a car for 43,611 miles, or off-setting the CO2 produced through natural gas use from approximately 4 average U.S. homes annually.

China said on Thursday it was unfair for rich countries to buy its cheap goods and then condemn its greenhouse gas pollution, a day after one study suggested the nation was already the world's biggest carbon dioxide emitter.

    A wind turbine stands in front of piles of coal waiting to be loaded onto container ships at the Newcastle Kooragang Island coal loading dock, the largest coal dock in Australia, located 120 km (75 miles) north of Sydney, March 11, 2007. The pristine Southern Ocean, which swirls around the Antarctic and absorbs vast amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, is slowly losing a fight against industrial gases responsible for global warming, scientists say. The Southern Ocean's unique wind and storm conditions make it the world's greatest carbon "sink"; the earth's oceans absorb a third of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and the Southern Ocean absorbs a third of that. But the waters that surround Antarctica are becoming more acidic as they absorb increasing amounts of carbon dioxide produced by nations burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas.

    Industry Commissioner Guenter Verheugen (L) and Environment Commissioner Stavros Dimas hold a joint news conference on the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from new cars, in Brussels February 7, 2007. The European Commission laid out a broad new strategy to cut carbon dioxide emissions from cars on Wednesday, proposing binding limits which automakers say will threaten jobs and lead to big price increases for consumers.

    The sun rises behind the Lethobong power station outside Johannesburg, November 10, 2006. Some 189 nations are meeting in Kenya to explore options for a global deal to combat climate change, with most focusing on cutting the amount of carbon dioxide pumped into the air by industry and modern lifestyles. The meeting runs until November 17. Reuters/Siphiwe Sibeko (SOUTH AFRICA)
