ABSTRACT
The article reports that Blackwell Publishing took a critical look at its contributions to the increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the environment in 2005 and decided to take a giant step toward conservation. Blackwell took the normal route to conserve on business trips, add low-watt lightbulbs in the offices, recycle materials, and even limit air conditioning temperatures in the offices. Once the company's carbon footprint was assessed, the next step was finding ways to conserve energy and decrease carbon dioxide emissions.

    Radiocarbon dioxide (14CO2, reported in Δ14CO2) can be used to determine the fossil fuel CO2 addition to the atmosphere, since fossil fuel CO2 no longer contains any 14C. After the release of CO2 at the source, atmospheric transport causes dilution of strong local signals into the background...
