  • Council turns greenhouse gas into energy

    An innovative renewable energy project will create enough green electricity to power 700 homes, while cutting annual carbon emissions by the equivalent of around 20,000 tonnes. The project, at Locharmoss Waste Disposal site near Dumfries, Scotland, takes away the local authority’s burden of controlling and disposing of methane, a greenhouse gas which is 21 times more damaging to the environment ...

  • Greenhouse gas protocol launches in India

    The use of standards to account for corporate greenhouse gases is increasingly common in developed countries – but it is emerging in developing countries as well. In India, companies’ focus on value chain inventories and life cycle thinking is in nascent stages. That’s why the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, a collaboration of the ...

  • Greenhouse gas emissions gap widening

    Action on climate change needs to be scaled-up and accelerated without delay if the world is to have a running chance of keeping a global average temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius this century. The Emissions Gap Report, coordinated by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the European Climate Foundation, and released days before the convening of the Climate Change Conference of the ...

  • 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 ...

  • California Electricity Users Offered Greenhouse Gas Offset

    SAN FRANCISCO, California, (ENS) - Pacific Gas and Electric Company has won approval from the California Public Utilities Commission, CPUC, to launch ClimateSmart - a new voluntary program that offers customers the option to neutralize greenhouse gas emissions associated with their energy use. The climate protection program is scheduled to launch in spring 2007. Conceived and ...

  • Scientists question EPA estimates of greenhouse gas emissions

    The approach the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) uses to estimate greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural anaerobic lagoons that treat manure contains errors and may underestimate methane emissions by up to 65%, according to scientists from the University of Missouri. Anaerobic lagoons treat manure on some animal feeding operations prior to application to crops as a fertilizer. ...

  • EPA Power Profiler Calculates Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    WASHINGTON, DC, July 2, 2007 (ENS) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has added greenhouse gas emissions data to its online calculator that shows householders how much air pollution results from individual electricity use, the fuels used to produce that electricity and ways to reduce the impact. 'EPA's Power Profiler makes it easy to research the air emissions that come from using ...

  • 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 CO2 Sidetracked in Oceans` Twilight Zone

    WOODS HOLE, Massachusetts (ENS) - Climate experts have relied on the oceans to absorb enough of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide to slow global warming, but new research by an international team of scientists shows that the oceans may have little impact on changes in the atmosphere or climate. The research indicates that instead of sinking, carbon dioxide is often consumed by ...

  • U.S. Senators Propose Compulsory Greenhouse Gas Cuts

    WASHINGTON, DC, October 18, 2007 (ENS) – A bipartisan bill introduced today in the U.S. Senate proposes mandatory, not voluntary, limits on greenhouse gases with the goal of reducing the nation's emissions more than 60 percent by mid-century. The bill's authors say the plan is a serious and viable effort to tackle global warming and key Democrats aim to get the legislation out of committee and ...

  • Households take the heat for greenhouse gas emissions

    Households were either directly or indirectly responsible for almost half of Canada’s total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2004 according to a report released this week by Statistics Canada.  Overall emissions related to households increased 13% from about 285 900 kilotonnes in 1990 to 321 700 kilotonnes in 2004. Household emissions from motor fuel use and residential fuel use (direct ...

  • BC transit plan will cut greenhouse gas emissions

    BC Premier Gordon Campbell unveiled a $14-billion transit plan as part of the government's agenda to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The plan is expected to double Vancouver public transit ridership and significantly lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2020. Premier Campbell told a news conference on January 14, 2008 that the transit plan will cut 4.7 million tonnes of greenhouse ...

  • U.S. greenhouse gas emissions and capture, regionally

    A new report, Agriculture’s Role in Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Capture, commissioned by the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, examines the evidence for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and sequestration in America’s major agroecosystems. The report summarizes current knowledge of carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide ...

  • Growth of Global Greenhouse Gas Emissions Accelerating

    CANBERRA, Australia, (ENS) - Global emissions of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide have more than doubled since 1990 and the rate of increase is accelerating, according to new information gathered and analyzed by the Australian government research service. The scientists say this trend, based on data collected over the past 30 years, indicates that recent efforts to ...

  • US asks for comments on planned greenhouse gas law

    The public will have an opportunity to comment before the US Environmental Protection Agency takes any action to regulate the greenhouse gases responsible for climate change, EPA chief Stephen Johnson told members of Congress in a letter last Thursday. Johnson said he will solicit public input through an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking as the agency considers the specific effects of climate ...

  • Going global to gauge greenhouse gas behaviour
