  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions - Fluxes and Processes

    This is the first book to provide measurements of greenhouse gases from both aquatic and terrestrial environments as well as from hydroelectric reservoirs. This monograph not only presents the state-of-the-art techniques for measuring the emissions of greenhouse gases, but also demonstrates the mechanisms or processes leading to the emissions of ...

  • Climate Change Mitigation by Forestry: A Review of International Initiatives

    This is a masterly review of the state of play with initiatives to mitigate the effects of greenhouse gas emissions through forestry. The authors have been keen observers, and sometimes players themselves, in the forests and climate change debate. Focusing on case studies and issues of particular interest, they present a much-needed ...

  • Climate Change and Developing Countries

  • African Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories and Mitigation Options

    As atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases continue to increase, so does the potential for atmospheric warming and associated climate change. In an effort to address the threat of global climate change, 155 countries signed the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in June 1992. As of the first ...

  • 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, ...

  • Environmental law in developing countries : selected issues

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Legal Aspects in the Implementation of CDM Forestry Projects

    Among the various innovative instruments linked to the Kyoto Protocol is the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), which offers developed countries a chance to offset some of their greenhouse gas emissions by funding development projects in areas such as renewable energy and forestry. Over the last two years, the rules of the CDM and those relating ...

  • Carbon Sinks and Climate Change

    Reforestation and avoiding deforestation are methods of harnessing nature to tackle global warming – the greatest challenge facing humankind. In this book, Colin Hunt deals comprehensively with the present and future role of forests in climate change policy and practice.
