  • Keeping track of municipal greenhouse gas emissions

    Keeping track of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is just as important for local governments as for national governments, according to a new study. Researchers are studying how cities benefit from GHG inventories, such as improvements in air quality, while also contributing to larger national strategies for climate change mitigation. Burning fossil fuels not only produces GHGs, but also local and ...

  • Irish EPA projections of greenhouse gas emissions to 2020

    The EPA has released projections of Ireland’s greenhouse gas emissions to 2020, as mandated under the National Climate Change Strategy. These projections update those published in the National Climate Change Strategy in April 2007 and give a picture of Ireland’s ability to meet international targets with respect to greenhouse gas emissions, if current policies and programmes are implemented. ...

  • Management of rice paddy fields affects greenhouse gas emissions

    How rice paddy fields are managed significantly influences the release of greenhouse gases (GHGs), a recent study concludes. Permanently flooded soils release more methane than soils that are flooded and then dried between production periods, for example. In general, the researchers recommend growing other crops in dried soil between production cycles, as well as limiting nitrogen fertilisers, to ...
