  • Who really is responsible for climate change and industrial emissions policy in Canada?

    There seems to be no end to press releases announcing good things to deal with climate change and equally no end to criticism for alleged failings in this regard. All three levels of government share in the plaudits and criticisms for achievements or failures related to climate change, which is understandable given the lack of clarity as to who actually is responsible for climate change related ...

  • CSAPR - The new transport rule

    The core of the new Transport Rule was published in the Federal Register (76 FR 48208), approximately one year after the main rule proposal (75 FR 45210) (covered in the Fall 2010 Environmental Quarterly, Federal Transport Rule — the “New CAIR” Round 1).

  • Return of the clean air interstate rule—The court does CAIR

    In summer 2008, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issued a dramatic decision to vacate the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) in its entirety (North Carolina v. EPA, No. 05-1244, D.C. Cir., July 11, 2008). Following a petition for rehearing, it seems the previous vacatur was just a temporary detour, as the Court reinstated CAIR on December 22, 2008. The reinstatement appears to turn ...

  • The shifting sands of GHG regulation

    So far this year, there have been significant developments on U.S. climate change policy, including movement toward mandatory reporting and regulation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at the federal level via either a cap-and-trade program or possibly existing Clean Air Act mechanisms. While the specifics are still uncertain regarding how these regulatory developments and legislative actions ...

  • On energy, we`re finally walking the walk

    The United States has entered a new energy era, ending a century of rising carbon emissions. As the U.S. delegation prepares for the international climate negotiations in Copenhagen in December, it does so from a surprisingly strong position, one based on a dramatic 9 percent drop in U.S. carbon emissions over the past two years and the promise of further huge reductions. Prominent among these ...

  • Biofilter Applications in the Coatings Industry.

    Soaring energy costs and the high cost of ‘end-of-pipe’ pollution control equipment has caused companies and regulatory agencies to re-evaluate ‘unconventional’ means of achieving VOC and HAP emissions control. The coatings industry is an excellent candidate for alternative, unconventional controls, as VOC and HAP reductions have not been as strident as has been the case in many other industries. ...


  • Latin America well-positioned for CDM

    The coastal desert of Colombia’s La Guajira state is a world away from Kyoto, the temperate Japanese city where representatives of 159 countries in 1997 signed the Kyoto Protocol on reducing greenhouses gases. The Caribbean laps against rickety settlements. Herds of goats range across scorching sands. Months, whole years, pass without rain. But Kyoto is well known to the inhabitants of La ...


  • Composting - Best bang for MSW management buck

  • Betting on the Clean Economy

    British Columbia and three Pacific Coast states in the U.S. are counting on clean energy, clean technology and a 'green' economy to grow prosperity and jobs, political leaders told GLOBE 2012's opening plenary. However, increasing global demand for energy will also drive continued fossil energy development including Alberta's oilsands, which provides huge economic benefits, a ...

  • Living within Earth`s “Planetary Boundaries”

    Borneo’s lowland rainforests are one of the most biodiverse regions on earth, home to unique habitats, thousands of species of plants, and animals like Proboscis monkeys, Sumatran rhinoceroses, and orangutans.

  • Bringing ecosystem markets to scale in the Southern United States

    For the most part, Ecosystem Markets still linger in the early stages of development. There is much more theoretical work to be done to set up environmental credit markets, including carbon offsets and payments for watershed services.
