  • Greenhouse Gas Reductions from Demand-Side Management

    This paper discusses greenhouse gas reductions gained through demand-side management programs. Demand-side management programs are designed to educate consumers to reduce energy consumption by improving energy efficiency and modifying energy use levels. These programs conducted by utilities result in decreased amounts of greenhouse gas emissions. However, utilities are often restricted from using ...

  • Environmental refugees, corrective justice and a system of compensation

    Climate change threatens to create roughly 200 million environmental refugees by 2050. By the author's definition, these people will lack the goods required to live a minimally good human life and will be forced to cross international borders in search of resettlement and support. Given that climate change is deemed to be anthropogenic, this article responds to this prospective humanitarian ...

  • Legal developments related to greenhouse gas emissions

    The prospects for new regulations on greenhouse gas emissions have evolved from a possibility to an inevitability, according to the authors of this article. They say the greatest potential for new regulations on greenhouse gas emissions is emerging from existing laws--most particularly, the Clean Air Act. The authors, noting that state regulatory efforts and successes in the courts have set the ...

  • Greenhouse gas emission trends and projections 2005

    Projections show that the pre-2004 EU Member States (EU-15) could cut their total emissions to 9.3% below 1990 levels by 2010 with a combination of existing domestic policies and measures already implemented, additional policies and measures currently being planned and the use of credits from emissions-saving projects in third countries through the Kyoto Protocol's 'flexible mechanisms'. Thus the ...

  • Intertemporal social choice and climate stabilization

    This paper examines the implications of alternative approaches to intertemporal social choice in a numerically calibrated model of interactions between global climate change and the world economy. Under cost-benefit analysis, relatively modest steps towards greenhouse gas emissions abatement are justified as economically efficient. Under classical utilitarianism and the precautionary principle, ...

  • WMO Greenhouse gas bulletin

    The latest analysis of data from the WMO-GAW Global Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Network, a comprehensive network of the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS), shows that the globally averaged mixing ratios of carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) have reached new highs in 2007 with CO2 at 383.1 ppm, CH4 at 1789 ppb and N2O at 320.9 ppb. These values are higher than those in ...

  • EPA Moves Closer to GHG Control

    EPA has put itself on the path toward greenhouse gas regulation, but in Congress, the courts, and the international community, the debate rages on. On Dec. 7, 2009, EPA moved one step closer to imposing the first ever set of enforceable greenhouse gas (GHG) standards on tailpipe emissions from vehicles, and a requirement that large power plants and industrial emitters install best ...
