Sulphur and nitrogen pollution falling - but still harming ecosystems

by European Commission, Environment DG  (Nov. 6, 2014)

European emissions of sulphur and nitrogen pollution have fallen greatly in recent decades, a new report shows. However, even at present levels they harm sensitive ecosystems, and will continue do so for some years to come. Air pollution damages ecosystems as well as human health. Sulphur and nitrogen are both acidifying air pollutants which ...

Climate Proof Cities: Practical guidelines for climate proof cities

by Wageningen University and Research Centre  (Nov. 5, 2014)

Cities are vulnerable to the effects of climate change. The most efficient way to make cities more climate proof is through numerous relatively small and local measures, which can often be carried out parallel to major maintenance or renovation work. These were the findings of a final report published recently by the Climate Proof Cities research ...

Air pollution and climate policies not in conflict

by GLOBE Foundation  (Oct. 30, 2014)

Air pollution policy does not undermine the long-term goals of climate change policy, a new study concludes. Although reductions in the pollutant sulphur dioxide could have some warming effects on the Earth’s temperature, the impacts are only short term and will never outweigh climate policy’s cooling effects. Some researchers ...
