  • Greenhouse Gas Emission and Mitigation in Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants

    The wide adoption of wastewater treatment processes and use of novel technologies for improvement of nitrogen and phosphorus removals from wastewater have been introduced to meet stringent discharge standards. Municipal wastewater treatment plants (MWWTPs) are one of major contributors to the increase in the global GHG emissions and therefore it ...

  • Why Scientists Disagree about Global Warming

    The most important fact about climate science, often overlooked, is that scientists disagree about the environmental impacts of the combustion of fossil fuels on the global climate. There is no survey or study showing “consensus” on the most important scientific issues, despite frequent claims by advocates to the ...

  • World Energy Outlook 2013

    In a world where big differences in regional energy prices impact competitiveness, who are the potential winners and losers? Huge volumes of oil are needed to meet growing demand and offset declines in existing fields. Where will it all come from? What could trigger a rapid convergence in natural gas prices between Asia, Europe and North America, ...

  • Global Scream

    Are you hearing Nature’s global scream?” is the question posed by this new novel. Veteran South African biologist from Stellenbosch University, Adriaan Reinecke, is probably best known in scientific circles for his book chapters and scientific papers in international journals (see for example ScienceDirect on the web). His research papers report ...

  • Global Warming: Facts vs. Faith

    Walter Cunningham has enjoyed careers in the United States Marine Corps, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and private industry, including 12 years as a venture ...

  • Green Skies Thinking: Promoting The Development And Commercialisation Of Sustainable Bio-Jet Fuels

    Our report recommends the wide-scale deployment of sustainable bio-jet fuels which would result in emission reductions worth £37.41 billion in the UK between 2020 and 2050, as well as making a significant contribution to meeting the UK’s 2050 emission reduction target. We also set out how the UK can become a world leader in this important suite of ...

  • Global Mapping of Human Settlement: Experiences, Data Sets and Prospects

    The use of remote sensors for human settlement mapping and monitoring holds great promise for numerous fields of study, including urban planning and global environmental change and sustainability. While the potential for this technology is difficult to measure, achieving useful results at a regional or global level is but a recent accomplishment. ...

  • Climate Change Reconsidered

    This 880-page rebuttal of the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), three years in the making, was released in June 2009 by The Heartland Institute. Coauthored and edited by S. Fred Singer, ...

  • Global Warming: The Complete Briefing, 4th Edition

    John Houghton’s market-leading textbook is now in full colour and includes the latest IPCC findings, making it the definitive guide to climate change. Written for students across a wide range of disciplines, its simple, logical flow of ideas gives an invaluable grounding in the science and impacts of climate change and highlights the need for ...

  • Water Ethics: Marcelino Botin Water Forum 2007

    In the context of the current financial crisis, and at a time of deep global change, growing attention is paid to the global norms and ethical values that could underpin future global policy. Water is a key global resource. At the 3rd Marcelino Botin Foundation Water Workshop, held in Santander, Spain, June 12-14, 2007, the role of ethics in the ...

  • Is the U.S. Surface Temperature Record Reliable?

    The stakes in the debate over global warming are high. If human activities are causing a major warming of the earth’s atmosphere, then actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions costing hundreds of billions of dollars would be ...

  • Climate Change Science Compendium 2009

    The Climate Change Science Compendium is a review of some 400 major scientific contributions to our understanding of Earth Systems and climate that have been released through peer-reviewed literature or from research institutions over the last three years, since the close of research for consideration by the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report.The ...

  • The Rapid Assessment 3 title Set 2009 - Environmental Food Crisis, The Natural Fix, Climate in Peril.

    Save US$20.00 by purchasing these latest UNEP titles as a setThe Environmental Food Crisis : The Environment's Role in Averting Future Food CrisisA new rapid response assessment report released by UNEP warns that up to 25% of the world’s food production may become lost due to environmental breakdown by 2050 unless action is taken.The Natural Fix ? ...

  • Climate in Peril : a popular guide to the latest IPCC reports

    Warming of the climate system is beyond argument, as shown by observations of increases in average air and ocean temperatures, the widespread melting of snow and ice, and rising global sea levels. But as the messages from scientists become increasingly explicit, the gap between the need for action they project and the climate policy the world ...

  • A Sectoral Approach: Greenhouse Gas Mitigation in the Cement Industry

    This economic and policy modeling project is designed to improve understanding of the impacts of different carbon policies on emissions reductions, global trade and regional market shares in the cement sector. The results of the study show that cement production is likely to more than double by 2030, based on current demand ...

  • Mitigating Climate Change Through Food and Land Use

    SummaryLand makes up a quarter of Earth’s surface, and its soil and plants hold three times as much carbon as the atmosphere. More than 30 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions arise from the land use sector. Thus, no strategy for mitigating global climate change can be complete or successful without reducing emissions from agriculture, ...

  • The Natural Fix ? The Role of Ecosystems in Climate Mitigation

    Large cuts in emissions of greenhouse gases are needed if we are to avoid the worst effects of global climate change. This Rapid Assessment Report describes the vital contributions which ecosystems can and must make to improve these efforts. It presents carbon capture and storage through a Green Economy lens, outlining the potential in terms of ...
