  • New Report Shows Decline in Carbon Dioxide and Other Pollutants from U.S. Power Plants, but State and Power Company Emissions Vary Widely

    A new report on U.S. power plant emissions from the country’s top 100 electric power producers shows a downward trend in nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur dioxides (SO2), mercury and carbon dioxide (CO2) since 2000, with CO2 emissions decreasing 13 percent between 2008 and 2012. The findings show that the industry is already shifting toward a combination of increased energy efficiency and lower ...

  • India set to defy warnings on coal’s climate impact

    The man responsible for maintaining India’s power supply says he wants the country’s coal production to double within the next five years. Piyush Goyal, Minister of State for Power, Coal, New and Renewable energy, says India needs to dig twice as much coal as it does today if it is to meet its soaring energy demand. By 2019, it is expected to be consuming two trillion units of ...

  • Bush announces new CO2 emission target

    President George W. Bush has outlined a new climate goal for the United States, calling for the nation to halt the growth of its greenhouse gas emissions by 2025. Bush touted his new climate strategy as ambitious, but environmentalists and Democratic lawmakers criticized the plan as feeble and contend it falls far short of what is needed to fend off climate change. 'Waiting until 2025 to stop ...

  • New EU report will call for 90% capture of CO2 emissions by 2015

    You may have heard about 'Carbon Capture and Storage' - it's a way of keeping CO2 from entering the atmosphere and contributing to global warming. Last year a proposed Europe-wide directive was proposed, which would regulate the emerging practice. British Liberal Chris Davies is preparing a report calling for it to be mandatory. He wants all new coal burning power stations to be required to ...
