East Asian air pollution to have bigger global impact under climate change

by European Commission, Environment DG  (Jan. 29, 2015)

Greater amounts of air pollutants emitted in East Asia will move around the globe under climate change, a recent study predicts. Changes to wind speeds and air pressure will mean that movement of pollution from this region is enhanced under a changing climate. These results highlight the need for globally coordinated efforts to tackle air ...

Declining city populations could boost provision of urban ecosystem services

by European Commission, Environment DG  (Jan. 29, 2015)

The decline of urban populations and abandonment of buildings and land could provide an opportunity to promote ecosystem services, a new study suggests. The researchers examined the relationships between the use of abandoned land and ecosystem services, providing insight into the pros and cons of different urban planning policies. In Europe, 40% ...

Sound noise testing solutions for ensuring Noise at Work compliance

by Pulsar Instruments plc  (Jan. 27, 2015)

When it comes to ensuring compliance with the Noise at Work Regulations (2005) in an industrial setting such as a factory, workshop, warehouse or a construction site, one thing is for sure: you need outstanding noise testing and noise monitoring technology to obtain the best results. The Noise at Work ...

El Niño Southern Oscillation can be used to predict global flood risk anomalies

by European Commission, Environment DG  (Jan. 22, 2015)

Unusually warm or cool Pacific sea surface temperatures, known as El Niño and La Niña, can be used to reliably predict anomalies in flood risk for river basins that cover 44% of the Earth’s land surface, a new study has shown. The researchers also quantified overall flood damage by combining information on flood risk with ...

Higher social costs bolster case for emissions curbs

by Climate News Network  (Jan. 15, 2015)

Concerted action on climate change is looking like a bargain after research findings that the notional cost to society of global warming damage caused by carbon dioxide emissions has been seriously underestimated. The US Environmental Protection Agency calculates the “social cost of carbon” at $37 per tonne – a figure used to ...

Fact sheet: EPA’S strategy for reducing Methane and ozone-forming pollution from the oil and natural gas industry

by US EPA - Environmental Protection Agency  (Jan. 14, 2015)

As part of the Obama Administration’s commitment to addressing climate change, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has outlined a series of steps it plans to take to address methane and smog-forming VOC emissions from the oil and gas industry, in order to ensure continued, safe and responsible growth in U.S. oil and natural gas ...

MRV a major theme at the UN climate negotiations

by National Physical Laboratory (NPL)  (Jan. 8, 2015)

More than 190 countries gathered in Lima, Peru in December 2014 to debate a future agreement to limit our carbon emissions to avoid dangerous climate change. Members of the Centre for Carbon Measurement at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) attended and presented its work to measure and verify greenhouse gas emissions and to follow the debate ...

Monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) a major theme at the UN climate negotiations

Xcel Energy charts path to reduce carbon emissions 40 per cent by 2030

by Xcel Energy  (Jan. 2, 2015)

Xcel Energy today offered a plan that charts a path to more than double its renewable energy portfolio and delivers nation-leading carbon emission reductions, while maintaining a diverse energy mix that helps keep costs reasonable for customers. The proposal is outlined in the company’s 2016-2030 Upper Midwest Integrated Resource Plan. ...

Greater efforts to reduce ammonia emissions needed to meet air pollution targets

by European Commission, Environment DG  (Dec. 18, 2014)

Levels of particulate matter (PM) in the atmosphere are linked to ammonia emissions. However, reducing ammonia emissions only as far as targets set out by the Gothenburg Protocol will not necessarily ensure compliance with EU PM limits, according to a new study. Greater reductions in ammonia emissions would reduce the number of days when PM limit ...
