According to the European Union political agenda, Poland has to cut off its emissions of greenhouse gases and particles in order to mitigate negative effects of climate change. In order to assess how this goal shall be achieved and what would be the costs of massive reduction, an advanced economic ...
The University of Windsor's environmental footprint will shrink after a $4.5-million campus retrofit grant aimed at reducing greenhouse gas. Mary Caton. Published on: April 25, 2018 | Last Updated: April 25, 2018 8:15 PM EDT. Dan Castellan, the University of Windsor's manager of facilities, planning, renovation and ...

The patented work has grabbed the attention of energy companies that would like to significantly and inexpensively reduce carbon dioxide emissions, one of the most widespread greenhouse gases, and explore other possible uses of the invention. The memzyme meets the Department of Energy's ...
For decades, researchers believed eroding mountains and newly exposed silicate rocks served as carbon sinks by sucking carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. A new study, however, has thrown a wrench into that theory. According to the study published this week in Science ...
The patented work, reported recently in Nature Communications , has interested power and energy companies that would like to significantly and inexpensively reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, one of the most widespread greenhouse gases, and explore other possible uses of the invention.
Greenhouse gas emissions in Switzerland rose slightly in 2016, the Federal Office of the Environment says. The reason was that year's particularly cool winter temperatures led to increased energy use. Emissions increased by 0.4 million tonnes to 48.3 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalentexternal ...

... to take a proactive and leadership role in the formulation of ambitious GHG emission reduction pathways by proposing innovative ways to operationalise the principle of common but differentiated responsibility while not compromising on the IMO principles.” 0Comments.

The United Nations shipping regulator formally adopts the industry's first global emissions target, with a plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% by 2050 - which will require the industry to completely redesign their fleets around new types of fuel. To reach a 50% cut in emissions by 2050 from ...
Eroding mountains could release, not trap, greenhouse gases. By Paul Voosen Apr. 12, 2018 , 2:20 PM. The hills are hiding a carbon cache. For decades, scientists believed that the erosion of mountains caused carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere to drop, as silicate rocks newly exposed to rainwater would “weather,” ...

("Ultra-thin enzymatic liquid membrane for CO22 separation and capture"), has interested power and energy companies that would like to significantly and inexpensively reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, one of the most widespread greenhouse gases, and explore other possible uses of the invention.
A Conservative Strategy to Reduce Greenhouse Gases. Norm King. By Norm King. Norm King is a former city manager of three California cities and of the San Bernardino County transportation commission and has taught part-time at USC and Claremont McKenna College. Tuesday, April 10th, 2018. I am fiscally ...
"This is important because the world's lakes and surface waters will emit more greenhouse gases as they become greener and more nutrient-rich." Greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere drive global climate change. Although carbon dioxide is the most well-known greenhouse gas, methane and ...

A paper published this week in the journal Limnology and Oceanography Letters is the first to show that lake size and nutrients drive how much greenhouse gases are ...
To bypass the legislature, Northam and other RGGI supporters are pushing a backdoor regulatory path to RGGI participation, encouraging Virginia's Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to draft rules limiting greenhouse gases and setting up a trading regime with RGGI. Critics of this move have ...
WASHINGTON — Anyone who tells you that dealing with climate change is simply a matter of sweeping away the obstructionism of oil companies is living in a dream world. The real obstacle is us — our vast dependence on fossil fuels and the difficulty of extricating ourselves without crippling the world ...
With just over a week before the Washington Legislature adjourns for the year, the question recurs: Will legislators make Washington the first state in the nation to tax greenhouse-gas emissions to fight climate change? Lurking in the background as state legislators debate a carbon tax is the threat of a ...
The transportation sector accounts for about 40 percent of all the greenhouse gases emitted in California, and trucks generate one-fifth of the transportation total, according to CARB data (Cars are the largest source of transportation greenhouse gases, at 60 percent). The agency says its rules will remove ...

What this all means in practice — to provide a bit of broader context here — is that yet another large source of greenhouse gases is now being prepped for release/exploitation. Now this isn't surprising, of course, as deforestation rates are still climbing throughout much of the world, and efforts to date to limit ...
The compact King Air B200 research plane is so stuffed with instruments that it makes for a tight squeeze for the two pilots and two scientists who'll be flying Tuesday from Hampton to New Jersey and then to North Carolina. But the two flights aren't about comfort — they're about testing out the world's first ...
Vegan and vegetarian diets are not just the latest trend. According to climate experts, these diets could actually help mitigate the effects of climate change. “From a greenhouse gas standpoint and a climate standpoint, there are many advantages to a vegetarian diet and a vegan diet,” Rob Jackson, chair of the Department of ...
With the Trump administration having abandoned the Paris climate agreement, several states have emphasized their own efforts to reduce greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. In November, the governors of California, Oregon and Washington attended global climate change talks in Bonn, ...
Transport causes more greenhouse gas pollution than any other sector although emissions overall continue to fall, the latest statistics show. Emissions of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, fell 6 per cent from 2015 to 2016, with the reductions mostly due to a lower use of coal for electricity, according ...
Chlorofluorocarbon gases (CFCs) became widely utilized in the mid-1960s—as refrigerants such as Freon, as fire retardants such as Halon, as spray-can propellants, as solvents, and as foam-blowing agents. CFCs were far more stable, far more chemically inert than alternatives and were, therefore, much ...

It's very clear that the Globe has been warming but it's also clear and it's clear that man caused some of that warming but not because of greenhouse gases. And over all of earth's history-- volcanoes, certain types of volcanoes, major basaltic flows--coming out of volcanoes caused the warming and you ...
