  • Wageningen UR Greenhouse Horticulture helps to improve greenhouse horticulture in Chile

    Chile is a unique country: 4 000 km long, 17.6 million people of which more than five live in the capital Santiago. In the neighbouring province of Valparaiso (33 ° S) is located the main greenhouse horticulture region of Chile. The local government contracted the foundation Wageningen UR Chile to make a plan for an Innovation, Demonstration and Training Center. For this, Wageningen UR ...

  • Greenhouse gases reach record levels

    The main greenhouse gases have reached their highest levels recorded since pre-industrial times, according to the World Meteorological Organization's 2009 Greenhouse Gas Bulletin. The report also highlights concerns that global warming may lead to even greater emissions of methane from Arctic areas. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Combatting diseases in the greenhouse before they become visible

    A camera that maps photosynthesis, a DNA test that can measure the slightest traces of pathogens, or a precision spray system that only affects the plant and not the surrounding air… The Gezonde Kas (‘healthy greenhouse’) project has, over the last four years, allowed for the development of a sophisticated system of monitoring and disease control. It is now ready for practical ...

  • Quantum leap taken in measuring greenhouse effect

    British scientists have devised a new way to observe the greenhouse world, enabling researchers to measure with exquisite accuracy how atmospheric carbon dioxide builds up, migrates, evolves and absorbs radiation. The technique will allow more accurate predictions about how much the Earth is likely to warm over the next few ...

  • 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 - greenhouse gases do threaten public health

    After a thorough examination of the scientific evidence and careful consideration of public comments, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced today that greenhouse gases (GHGs) threaten the public health and welfare of the American people. EPA also finds that GHG emissions from on-road vehicles contribute to that threat. GHGs are the primary driver of climate change, which can ...

  • EPA: greenhouse gases threaten public health and the environment

    After a thorough examination of the scientific evidence and careful consideration of public comments, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced today that greenhouse gases (GHGs) threaten the public health and welfare of the American people. EPA also finds that GHG emissions from on-road vehicles contribute to that threat. GHGs are the primary driver of climate change, which can ...

  • Greenhouse Gases, Not El Nino, Fueled U.S. Heat in 2006

    BOULDER, Colorado, August 28, 2007 (ENS) - Greenhouse gases probably accounted for more than half of the widespread heatwave felt across the continental United States in 2006, according to a new study that will be published September 5 in 'Geophysical Research Letters,' a publication of the American Geophysical Union. Led by meteorologist Martin Hoerling at the National Oceanic ...

  • Valoya Launches a Line of LED Grow Lights for Greenhouses

    The BL-Series are sturdy yet lightweight LED bars optimized for greenhouse cultivation of a wide variety of plants. This new series combines the features of Valoya’s recently launched BX-Series, with the chainability feature. Up to 16 luminaires can be daisy chained together with a single mains input making the installation simpler and removing excessive cables. Additionally, the LED driver ...

  • 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 ...

  • New York City to Cut Greenhouse Gases 30% by 2030

    New York City Council today unanimously passed legislation to require the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions throughout the five boroughs. The Climate Protection Act is intended to strengthen PlaNYC 2030, Mayor Michael Bloomberg's plan to green New York, by putting the force of law behind its goal to reduce the city’s emission of greenhouse gases. Emitted by the burning of coal, oil and gas, ...

  • Amplified Greenhouse Effect Shifts North´s Growing Seasons

    Vegetation growth at Earth's northern latitudes increasingly resembles lusher latitudes to the south, according to a NASA-funded study based on a 30-year record of land surface and newly improved satellite data sets. An international team of university and NASA scientists examined the relationship between changes in surface ...

  • Greenhouse gases should be cut 80% by 2050, Climate Committee

    Eighteen months after it began work, Parliament's Temporary Committee on Climate Change called for an 80% cut in greenhouse gases by 2050, binding interim targets to improve energy efficiency 20% by 2020 and incentives to encourage everyone to do their bit. Meeting Tuesday to adopt the final report, the 60-member committee said, 'climate change is both more rapid and more serious in terms of its ...

  • EPA finds greenhouse gases pose threat to public health, welfare

    After a thorough scientific review ordered in 2007 by the U.S. Supreme Court, the Environmental Protection Agency issued a proposed finding Friday that greenhouse gases contribute to air pollution that may endanger public health or welfare. The proposed finding, which now moves to a public comment period, identified six greenhouse gases that pose a potential threat. “This finding confirms that ...

  • Peatlands are Quick and Cost-Effective Measure to reduce 10% of greenhouse emissions

    Clearing, draining and setting fire to peatlands emits more than 3 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide every year - equivalent to 10% of global emissions from fossil fuels, according to Assessment on Peatlands, Biodiversity and Climate Change, the first comprehensive global assessment of the link between peatland degradation and climate change. 'Just like a global phase out of old, energy guzzling ...

  • Oil spray reduces greenhouse gas emissions from pig finishing barns

    Animal feeding operations are an important emission source of air pollutants including methane and carbon dioxide—known greenhouse gases. Recent inventories suggest that animal manure makes a significant contribution to global methane emissions.
