  • iEmit: Triple Pundit reviews a new iPhone app that says it tracks your carbon emissions.
  • Green and Growing, Part Deux: Africa’s rainforests are growing really quickly — and soaking up more carbon dioxide than ever, says a study in Nature. (The problem is, it might be the increase in carbon emissions that’s making them grow faster in the first place.)
