After declining for a decade, worldwide sulfur dioxide emissions rose again in 2000 due largely to international shipping and a growing Chinese economy. A new analysis of sulfur emissions since the beginning of the Industrial Age will help researchers predict future changes in climate and determine present day effects on the atmosphere, health and the environment.

Improved crop productivity alone can't save tropical forests from agricultural encroachment. Replacing forests with cropland emits carbon dioxide, and new research shows policies that limit greenhouse gas emissions need to treat those emissions the same as if they were coming from a gas engine or coal powerplant if agricultural advancements are to have a chance of stopping deforestation.
