  • Cement develops an appetite for C02

    Three new studies illuminate the sheer complexity of the aspect of climate science known as the carbon cycle − how carbon dioxide gets into the atmosphere and out again. Sometimes, human agency is at work, but nature takes care of it anyway – as one of the studies reveals in the case of cement, the world’s most widely-used building material. Zhu Liu, postdoctoral scholar at ...

  • Is your firm “indifferent” or “active” about greenhouse gases?

    Executive Summary This study compares corporate responses to climate change by firms in the UK and Pakistan. Companies in developing and developed countries face some common barriers in responding to climate change (e.g. lack of financial resources). But, they have distinct strategies due to differences in acceptance of and support for those initiatives by government and other ...

  • Targets Agreed for Greenhouse Emissions in Post-Kyoto Era

    VIENNA, Austria, August 31, 2007 (ENS) - Delegates to a United Nations climate conference from 158 nations have reached broad agreement on a range of targets for greenhouse gas emissions cuts in an effort to lower the risk of global warming. The target would apply after the current global framework for managing climate change, the Kyoto Protocol, expires in 2012. A group of industrialized ...

  • High-tech greenhouse research facility for Australian horticulture

    Supported by Wageningen UR Greenhouse horticulture, a new high-tech greenhouse research facility will be built on the campus of University of Western Sydney, 50 km West of Sydney, Australia. Greenhouse horticultural industry is fast developing in Australia. Several new large vegetable production sites have started their operation during the last years, some of them with Dutch technology. ...

  • EPA finds greenhouse gases (GHGs) harmful

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) makes emissions reporting mandatory A major cause of climate change is the harm that is done to the Earth by man-made chemicals. Whilst chemicals, such as those used to produce day by day items, operate equipment and generally make life easier, are necessary, they present a threat to the environment. EPA Place Limits on GHGsGovernments around the world ...

  • Helping countries reduce agricultural greenhouse gas emissions

    With the consequences of climate change for the world's food production systems becoming increasingly clear, more needs to be done to capitalize on agriculture's potential to mitigate global warming, says a new FAO guidance document published today. Agriculture is directly responsible for over 10 percent of all human-caused ...

  • North American countries target “super” greenhouse gases

    Last night, the United States, Canada, and Mexico submitted a proposal to strengthen climate protection under the Montreal Protocol. The proposal targets the production and use of HFCs, a group of 'super' greenhouse gases. If accepted by the other Montreal Protocol Parties, the proposal would deliver climate mitigation equivalent to preventing over 100 billion tonnes of CO2 emissions. This is 10 ...

  • EPA Proposes to Replace and Reduce Harmful Greenhouse Gases

    Today (July, 10), the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to prohibit the use of certain chemicals that significantly contribute to climate change where safer, more climate-friendly alternatives exist. This is the agency’s second action aimed at reducing emissions of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), a class of potent greenhouse gases, under President Obama's ...

  • Agriculture`s greenhouse gas emissions on the rise

    New FAO estimates of greenhouse gas data show that emissions from agriculture, forestry and fisheries have nearly doubled over the past fifty years and could increase an additional 30 percent by 2050, without greater efforts to reduce them. This is the first time that FAO has released its own global estimates of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture, forestry and other land use ...

  • US heavy industry reduces greenhouse emissions by 1.4%

    The US Department of Energy (DOE) this week released its 'Climate VISION Progress Report 2007', which reports on the actions taken by energy-intensive industries to improve greenhouse gas emissions intensity of their operations from 2002 to 2006.  The report indicates that the power and energy-intensive industrial sectors improved their combined emissions intensity by 9.4 ...

  • Potent greenhouse gases – fluorinated gases in the European Union

    The European Environment Agency (EEA) has published new aggregated information on the production and trade of fluorinated gases – or F-gases – in the EU.
