  • EPA publishes national U.S. greenhouse gas inventory

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has released the 16th annual U.S. greenhouse gas inventory. The final report shows overall emissions during 2009 decreased by 6.1 percent from the previous year. This downward trend was attributed to a decrease in fuel and electricity consumption across all U.S. economic sectors. Total emissions of the six main greenhouse gases in 2009 were equivalent to ...

  • Brazil greenhouse gas emissions lowest in 20 years

    Emission levels of greenhouse gases in Latin America's biggest country fell last year to their lowest in two decades, a Brazilian network of environmental groups said in a report released Thursday. The Observatorio do Clima, or Climate Observatory, network is comprised of more than 30 non-governmental organizations focused on climate change. ...

  • US introduces new mandatory measurement and reporting of greenhouse gases

    Tough new EPA rules mean vehicle and engine manufacturers will be required to measure and report CH4 and N2O emissions from model year 2011. In April 2009 the US EPA proposed a new mandatory greenhouse gas reporting program. Although the sheer volume of CO2 in the atmosphere means that it is by far the biggest contributor to the greenhouse effect, there are other gases that also have a measurable ...

  • Greenhouse gas emissions forecasting - learning from the best

    A new NRTEE report on international best practices provides insight on how best to address some of Canada’s challenges in forecasting greenhouse gas emissions reductions accruing from federal climate policies and programs. The study points to the U.K. and the U.S. as having overall best practices in their approach to emissions forecasting with key lessons that can be applied to the Canadian ...

  • Semiconductor and aluminium industries underestimate greenhouse gas emissions

    Emissions of the greenhouse gases (GHGs) tetrafluoromethane (TFM) and hexafluoroethane (HFE) reported by industry accounted for only around half actual levels measured in the atmosphere between 2002 and 2010, new research reveals. The semiconductor and aluminium production industries, the two main sources of these gases, have reported success in their voluntary efforts to control these emissions. ...

  • New Jersey to Require Greenhouse Gas Emissions Cuts

    TRENTON, New Jersey, July 6, 2007 (ENS) - Governor Jon Corzine is expected to sign the Global Warming Response Act today, making New Jersey the third state in the nation to set limits on greenhouse gas emissions. California passed such a law last September, and Hawaii's global warming law took effect July 1. The New Jersey legislation requires a mandatory reduction of the state's greenhouse gas ...

  • Greenhouse gas concentrations hit yet another record

    The amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached yet another new record high in 2014, continuing a relentless rise which is fuelling climate change and will make the planet more dangerous and inhospitable for future generations. The World Meteorological Organization’s Greenhouse Gas Bulletin says that between 1990 and ...

  • EPA issues greenhouse gas reporting requirements for four emissions sources/agency also to consider data confidentiality (HQ)

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is finalizing requirements under its national mandatory greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting program for underground coal mines, industrial wastewater treatment systems, industrial waste landfills and magnesium production facilities. The data from these sectors will provide a better understanding of GHG emissions and will help EPA and businesses develop ...

  • Greenhouse gas emissions associated with long-distance travel

    Long-distance travelling accounts for a significant number of miles travelled per person, but estimates of its greenhouse gas emissions are lacking. Using data from Belgium and the Netherlands, this study estimates that longdistance journeys account for 40–50% of total mileage and 50% of greenhouse gas emissions of all people transport in Western Europe. Advances in transportation ...

  • New greenhouse gas identified, say MIT scientists

    A gas used for fumigation has the potential to contribute significantly to future greenhouse warming, but because its production has not yet reached high levels there is still time to nip this potential contributor in the bud, according to an international team of researchers. Scientists at MIT, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego and other institutions are reporting the results ...

  • Increasing oil production and reducing greenhouse gas emissions

    Cenovus operates the 210-square-kilometre Weyburn field in southeastern Saskatchewan. When it was discovered in 1954, the Weyburn field contained one of the largest medium-sour crude oil reservoirs in Canada, with approximately 1.4 billion barrels of oil in place. The Weyburn ...

  • Australia criticized over greenhouse-gas reduction target

    Australia has been criticized over its new greenhouse-gas reduction target which lags behind the ambitions of most wealthy countries. Lawmakers in Prime Minister Tony Abbott's conservative government on Tuesday agreed on a target of curbing carbon gas emissions to at least 26 percent below 2005 levels by 2030. The target could go as high as 28 ...

  • Record Greenhouse Gas Levels Impact Atmosphere and Oceans

    The amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached a new record high in 2013, propelled by a surge in levels of carbon dioxide. This is according to the World Meteorological Organization’s annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin, which injected even greater urgency into the need for concerted international action ...

  • EU reaches deal to cut greenhouse gas emissions

    European Union leaders agreed early Friday to cut greenhouse gas emissions in the 28-nation bloc to at least 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. The deal was aimed at countering climate change and setting an example for the rest of the world ahead of key international climate negotiations next year. A package agreed by leaders at an ...

  • Methane From Dams: Greenhouse Gas to Power Source

    SAO JOSE DOS CAMPOS, Brazil (ENS) - Scientists from Brazil's National Institute for Space Research, INPE, have published a new study showing that large dams contribute to global warming by releasing the greenhouse gas methane into the atmosphere. The authors propose capturing the methane and using it to generate electricity. Dr. Ivan Lima and his colleagues used a theoretical ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Ontario’s Waste Management Industry

    There is a strong complementarity between the aspirations of the waste management industry and Ontario’s goals for climate change mitigation, a circular economy and sustainable economic development according to a new report published by the Ontario Waste Management Association. As the Province of Ontario prepares to implement a “cap-and-trade” policy for greenhouse gas (GHG) ...
