  • The verdict on “Climategate”

    We now have ample evidence to come to firm conclusions about the much-discussed controversy and manufactured scandals surrounding climate change science. Instead of recreating the wheel, I am simply going to repost a summary on the topic here from the Pew Center on Global Climate Change and also provide a link to a similar factual recap from the World Resources Institute ( ...

  • Who is building our global GHG MRV infrastructure?

    Sometimes it feels quite lonely here at GHG Management Institute headquarters. Toiling away trying to do what we think is needed to support the future of greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation policy. While most people who pay attention to the issue are obsessed with the politics of the moment, we work away behind the scenes thinking about and building infrastructure for the long-run. Indeed in ...

  • ClimateCHECK and Southern Research Institute establish cooperative agreement

    ClimateCHECK and the Southern Research Institute are pleased to announce they have entered a cooperative agreement for providing advisory and verification services for technologies and projects that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to mitigate climate change. 'Southern Research and ClimateCHECK are an excellent complementary team,” said Tim Hansen of the Greenhouse Gas Technology Center ...

  • Record greenhouse gas levels: see for yourself

    For the first time, greenhouse gas data are accessed easily on a new CSIRO website. The site shows the levels of greenhouse gases measured in the Southern Hemisphere atmosphere for the past 35 years. Observed greenhouse gas concentrations – as measured by CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology at Cape Grim, Tasmania – can be easily explored by members of the public. ...

  • Wise use of peatsoils essential for tackling climate change

    An international group of scientists from Vrije Universiteit and Wageningen University has calculated and modeled the potential effects of the exploitation of peatsoils on the greenhouse gas balance for Northern peatlands. In the new scientific publication in PNAS ‘The uncertain ...

  • Turning greenhouse gas into gasoline

    Original story at MIT News A new catalyst material developed by chemists at MIT provides key insight into the design requirements for producing liquid fuels from carbon dioxide, the leading component of greenhouse gas emissions. The findings suggest a route toward using the world’s existing infrastructure for ...

  • GHG & climate change workforce needs assessment report now available!

    Earlier this month, against the backdrop of a busy first week of international climate negotiations in Cancun, Mexico, GHGMI – in collaboration with Sequence Staffing – released a report detailing the findings of the 2010 GHG & Climate Change Workforce Needs Assessment Survey. (The full report is available here.) ...

  • International environment/industry alliance underpins Australian carbon capture program

    The Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2CRC), which is undertaking Australia’s first carbon storage project, yesterday welcomed the proposal of a National Carbon Capture and Storage Taskforce aimed at accelerating the adoption of carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects. The *CO2CRC Chief Executive, Dr Peter Cook, said he looked forward to the acceleration of ...

  • How Grazinglands influence greenhouse gas

    Grazinglands represent one of the largest land resources in the world, yet their role as net sinks or sources of greenhouse gases is essentially unknown. Previous research has emphasized the role of grazing management on the sequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide as soil organic carbon. However, there is a lack of information regarding how grazing management impacts the flux of two potent ...

  • 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 ...

  • Growth of Atmospheric Methane Stablizes, May Slow Global Warming

    IRVINE, California, November 21, 2006 (ENS) - Levels of atmospheric methane, a potent greenhouse gas, have stayed nearly flat for the past seven years after rising for more than two decades, according to new research led by a Novel Prize winning scientist at the University of California-Irvine. This finding indicates that methane may no longer be as large a global warming threat as previously ...

  • MIT releases institutional greenhouse gas inventory

    Original story at MIT News The MIT Office of Sustainability has published the results of the first comprehensive campus greenhouse gas inventory, giving the MIT community the opportunity to understand, study, and improve decision-making on the ...

  • Latest climate change information captured in new CSIRO book

    The book highlights the importance of climate change as a matter of significant economic, environmental and social concern in Australia and provides the latest information on international climate change science and potential responses. CSIRO Chief Executive Dr Megan Clark will launch the book at the GREENHOUSE 2011 climate change conference in Cairns. She says that CSIRO is committed to ...

  • 400 ppm CO2 Milestone Marked Using Picarro Technology

    Researchers from SCRIPPS studying atmospheric levels at the Mauna Loa Observatory last week recorded the milestone 400 parts per million (ppm) CO2 concentration using instrumentation from Picarro Inc. The Mauna Loa observatory is a premier atmospheric research facility, and ideal for monitoring climate change due to the undisturbed air and minimal outside influences atop the Big Island of ...

  • Wasted food’s heavy burden on climate

    By mid-century, an estimated one-tenth of all greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture could be traced back to food waste, according to new research. Human use and misuse of land accounts for up to a quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions, and farming directly contributes at least 10%, and perhaps twice as much. Yet roughly one-third of all food produced never makes it to the plate. ...

  • New video on Greenhouse Gas soil monitoring

    In response to the demand for a better understanding of climate change, Gasmet Technologies and researchers from the University of Helsinki have created a video to demonstrate the speed and simplicity with which Greenhouse Gas (GHG) measurements can be taken in the field. Following the Paris climate conference (COP21) in December 2015, 195 countries adopted the first-ever universal, ...

  • Sustainable packaging coalition report investigates the climate impact of biodegradation in landfills

    Today at the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) Spring Meeting, the coalition released its report on biodegradation in landfills and the resulting greenhouse gas impacts, a key issue for the packaging industry given increasing marketing claims that biodegradation in landfills is a benefit due to the growing use of methane-rich landfill gas for energy. Assessing the Greenhouse Gas Impacts of ...

  • CCS research funded for further five years

    The Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2CRC), one of the world’s leading carbon capture and storage (CCS) research collaborations, is one of ten successful CRCs funded in the 11th selection round of the Australian Government’s Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Program. Federal Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research Kim Carr today announced funding of ...

  • RTI International supports EPA`s development of the first climate change regulation

    With the support of researchers at RTI International and other contractors, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency this week proposed the first comprehensive national system for reporting emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases produced by major sources in the United States. Greenhouse gases, like carbon dioxide, are produced by the burning of fossil fuels and through industrial ...
