The author provides signposts for the way ahead in climate change policy and ...

  • Implementing an Emissions Cap and Allowance Trading System for Greenhouse Gases: Lessons from the Acid Rain Program Report

    This report discusses specific lessons learned from the Acid Rain Program, contained in Title IV of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (CAAA), that apply to an emissions cap and allowance trading system for greenhouse gases (GHGs). Chapter II discusses the basic design features in applying an emissions cap and allowance trading system to ...

  • RA100509 Palo Alto Cuts Carbon with Hara

    This new case study from AltaTerra Research will be of interest to sustainability, social responsibility, finance, and IT executives – in both corporate and municipal organizations. Palo Alto, California is one of the first cities in the United States to begin using an automated system to track municipal greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy, ...

  • Six Thousand Feet Under: Burying The Carbon Problem

    The UK is missing the opportunity to be a world leader in tackling climate change due to Government inaction.This report argues that Carbon Capture and Storage is essential to meet UK CO2 targets and deliver clean electricity and that the UK is ideally placed to spearhead a new movement to cutting carbon emissions internationally. This however is ...

  • PLAN B 3.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization

    Experts were “stunned” this past summer by the loss of Arctic sea ice. An area almost twice the size of Britain disappeared in a single week.The Greenland ice cap is melting so fast that it is triggering minor earthquakes as pieces of ice weighing several billion tons break off the ice sheet and slide into the sea. The West Antarctic ...

  • Carbon Dioxide Mitigation in Forestry and Wood Industry

    The book provides theoretical and practical guidelines to use and enhance the potential of forests to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel resources. To understand the interactions linked with such concepts, the book addresses the following topics: forest dynamics and carbon budget; ...

  • World on the Edge: How to Prevent Environmental and Economic Collapse

    We are facing issues of near-overwhelming complexity and unprecedented urgency. Our challenge is to think globally and develop policies to counteract environmental decline and economic collapse. The question is: Can we change direction before we go over the edge?Lester Brown looks at our economic future through an environmental lens to develop a ...

  • Trace Gas Emissions and Plants

    Atmospheric abudance of trace gases since the pre-industrial time has forced the earth's climate to change, threatening food security. Exchange of biogenic trace gases between the atmosphere and the biosphere is directly or indirectly influenced by the plants. This volume contains the latest findings on the correlation between the climate ...
