Scientists refute lower emissions claim for fracking

by Climate News Network  (Oct. 15, 2014)

The argument that fracking can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is misguided, according to an international scientific study, because the amount of extra fossil fuel it will produce will cancel out the benefits of its lower pollution content. The study, published today in the journal Nature, recognises that ...

Individual power stations’ emissions can be identified from a distance

by European Commission, Environment DG  (Sep. 25, 2014)

Air pollutants and greenhouse gases (GHGs) from a coal-fired power station have been correctly identified 12 km away, researchers report in a new US study. Their monitoring method paves the way for a space-based satellite system which can check emissions reported by individual power stations against actual emissions. It is challenging to check the ...

Ocean acidification and GHGs hit record levels

by Climate News Network  (Sep. 9, 2014)

The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) reports that the amounts of atmospheric greenhouse gases reached a new high in 2013, driven by rapidly rising levels of carbon dioxide. The news is consistent with trends in fossil fuel consumption. But what comes as more of a surprise is the WMO’s revelation that the current rate of ocean ...

Study: Natural gas surge won`t slow global warming

by Associated Press  (Oct. 16, 2014)

Cheap and plentiful natural gas isn't quite a bridge to a brighter energy future as claimed and won't slow global warming, a new study projects. Abundant natural gas in the United States has been displacing coal, which produces more of the chief global warming gas carbon dioxide. But the new international study says an expansion of natural gas use ...

Freight emissions: Compare apples and apples

by PE International AG  (Aug. 26, 2014)

Transport and logistics account for half the global oil consumption and nearly 20% of the world’s energy use. Experts estimate that up to a quarter of the global Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions are transport related and the International Energy Agency (IEA) expects this figure to double by 2050. Many stakeholders in the freight sector, ...
