  • Wildfires Spew Carbon Emissions Into the Atmosphere

    BOULDER, Colorado, November 1, 2007 (ENS) - Severe wildfires can contribute as much as vehicles to carbon emissions in some U.S. states, although the amount is highly variable, according to a study based on satellite data. New research published in the journal 'Carbon Balance and Management' quantifies these emissions and suggests fires will complicate emissions monitoring and modelling efforts. ...

  • Office-related carbon emissions surge

    The office is becoming a major driver of climate change. Despite ongoing efforts to improve energy efficiency in the workplace, the world's growing reliance on the Internet is leading to a rapid increase in greenhouse gas emissions. The energy required to power all the world's computers, data storage, and communications networks is expected to double by 2020, according to a new McKinsey & Company ...

  • Emissions Monitoring in India Call for Papers

    The organisers of CEM India are seeking both oral and poster presentations for the CEM India Conference and exhibition which will take place from the 26th-28th September in Delhi India. India is one of the world's fastest growing economies and is currently the third largest polluting country in the world emitting 2407 million metric tonnes of CO2 .To tackle this pollution ...

  • Forests can soak up a third of carbon emissions

    Looking after the world’s tropical forests would be worthwhile in its own right, for the sake of their human and animal inhabitants and their wider effects on the natural world. But researchers say it would also have a significant bonus. Properly cared for, the forests could cancel out between a quarter and a third of the planet’s carbon emissions. They argue that it is not just ...

  • Black Carbon Emissions Cut 90% in California

    In a first-of-its kind study examining the impact black carbon has on climate in California, researchers found the state's efforts to reduce air pollution, particularly from diesel engines, has cut black carbon concentrations by 90% since 1966. This has happened without any noticeable disruption to the lives of the citizens of California, but with tremendous benefits to their health, as well as ...

  • Carbon emissions reporting software `dramatically simple`

    A Perth-based software engineering company, Cintellate, has launched a new reporting software that it says is set to “dramatically simplify carbon emissions reporting against complex legislation landscape across global business community”.Cintellate was founded in 1994 in Perth, as a software company designed to help large global organisations create long-term shareholder value by managing ...


  • World carbon dioxide emissions may be falling

    Global carbon dioxide emissions may be dropping ever so slightly this year, spurred by a dramatic plunge in Chinese pollution, according to a surprising new study released Monday. The unexpected dip could either be a temporary blip or true hope that the world is about to turn the corner on carbon pollution as climate talks continue in Paris, said the study’s authors, a scientific team that ...

  • Monitoring methane emissions from agriculture and dairy farming

    Methane (CH4) is the second most prevalent greenhouse gas emitted from human activities. In 2014, CH4 was responsible for around 11 percent of all US greenhouse gas emissions caused by human actions. Methane is emitted by a range of natural sources such as marshlands, leakage from natural gas systems and livestock farming [1]. Domestic ...

  • Underground monitoring of carbon storage site begins in Mississippi

    A team from the US Department of Energy's (DOE) Southeast Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (SECARB) is using scientific instrumentation, installed nearly two miles beneath the surface of the earth, to track the movement of carbon dioxide (CO2) being injected for oil recovery. This research effort will provide valuable insight into both the requirements of the instrumentation necessary to ...

  • Why emissions trading is more effective than a carbon tax, says IETA

    A cap and trade system is the best means to establish a quantifiable, legally enforceable limit on emissions which will ensure that essential climate change targets are met at the lowest possible cost. Such a program, when combined with offsets, will accelerate global emissions reductions. In addition, cap and trade provides the private sector with the flexibility required to reduce emissions ...
