  • North American countries target “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 ...

  • Putting a value on short-lived greenhouse gases

    Some greenhouse gases (GHGs), like methane, remain active in the atmosphere for a relatively short period of time compared to CO2. Scientists, economists and policy makers disagree on whether it would pay to increase efforts to reduce emissions of these short-lived GHGs. New research highlights how uncertainty about the impacts of GHGs on the climate determines the cost-effectiveness of abatement ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
