In what could help global policy makers to easily reach an agreement on strategies to reduce green house gas emissions, researchers have developed a new approach to reliably estimate carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from burning fossil fuels.
China, the biggest greenhouse gas emitter, today said it has registered a 5 per cent drop in its carbon intensity after the world's second largest economy made further structural re-adjustment to improve growth quality.
Despite improved energy efficiency and expenditure on renewable energy sources, the use of fossil fuels globally is expected to remain dominant, an International Energy Agency (IEA) expert said Wednesday here.
A new study has revealed that coral reefs may be able to adapt to moderate climate warming, improving their chance of surviving through the end of this century, if there are large reductions in carbon dioxide emissions.
Today, higher levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere are associated with rising ocean temperatures, but a new study has revealed that the seas were not always so sensitive to this CO2 “forcing.”
Brazil President Luiz Inacio
Lula da Silva on Wednesday signed a law requiring that Brazil cut
greenhouse gas emissions by 39 per cent by 2020, meeting a
commitment made at the Copenhagen climate change summit.
