Latest Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme Stories
While many climate change studies focus on the physical and ecological processes that drive greenhouse gas emissions, a new study published this week focuses on the societal forces that could cause global warming.
We will only achieve the target of limiting global warming to safe levels if carbon dioxide emissions begin to fall within the next two decades and eventually decrease to zero.
Climate scientists say the world’s target to stay below a global warming of 2 degrees, made at the United Nations conference in Copenhagen in 2009 and Cancun 2010 will require decisive action this decade.
The Australian government announced a new tax on carbon emissions for the worst polluters in the country, beginning in 2012.
Australian researchers have suggested that nations should abandon the concept of carbon emissions trading in favor of a carbon swap bank that might lead to genuine reductions in the amount of carbon dioxide greenhouse gas entering the atmosphere and so provide a mechanism for reducing climate change.
California has approved an extensive carbon-trading plan aimed at cutting greenhouse emissions.
Carbon dioxide emissions produced by UK shipping could be up to six times higher than currently calculated, according to new research from The University of Manchester.
Scientists said Wednesday that the US has to lead the global fight on climate change by breaking with business-as-usual and setting tough standards for the amount of greenhouse gases it emits into the atmosphere.
As part of its most comprehensive study of climate change to date, the National Research Council today issued three reports emphasizing why the US should act now to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and develop a national strategy to adapt to the inevitable impacts of climate change.
BEIJING, December 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Results released today from a detailed economic study show that China may cut carbon emissions deeply and minimise the adverse effects on its economy over the next 40 years.
