Dismayed by tepid Web sites on heat-trapping greenhouse gases, Dave Reay, an environmental scientist at the University of Edinburgh, U.K., decided to amass his own comprehensive and up-to-date file of information. GreenHouse Gas Online should be enlightening for researchers, students, and policy-makers debating how to cut emissions of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas. Scientists can keep abreast of the latest findings with a listing of new papers gleaned from more than 100 journals. For teachers and students, Reay has written succinct backgrounders on topics such as the possible effects of global warming; sources of greenhouse gases; and carbon dioxide sinks, such as plants and the ocean, that store the molecule. The site also links to news stories on pollution and climate change, such as the recent discovery of a “brown cloud” of airborne gunk hovering over Asia.
