The paper, published this month, is the first to break down the embodied emissions from household consumption across the EU.
Self-driving cars are at a fascinating juncture right now. We know they're coming soon. We know they're going to change things. But we don't know how they're going to change things - in what...
Janez Potocnik was unable to convince his fellow commissioners to publish a strategy for a sustainable food system.
It's generally assumed that it only takes a few years before solar panels have generated as much energy as it took to make them, resulting in very low greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional grid electricity. However, a more critical analysis shows that the cumulative energy and CO2 balance of the industry is negative, meaning that solar PV has actually increased energy use and greenhouse gas emissions instead of lowering them. The problem is that we use and produce solar panels in the wrong places. By carefully selecting the location of both manufacturing and installation, the potential of solar power could be huge. Picture: Jonathan Potts. There's nothing but good news about solar energy these days. The average global price...
If we're going to limit global warming to less than 2C, Australia will need to keep more than 90% of its coal reserves in the ground.
For the first time, the shipping sector will have to monitor its carbon emissions under a law agreed upon by the European Union Wednesday (26 November), intended as a step towards tackling a growing source of pollutants linked to climate change.
E.U. officials are keen to let us know that most of the benefits of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership - the vast and controversial trade deal currently in negotiation - will come from...
The climate problem can't be solved until humanity learns to distinguish needs from wants. ATV riding may not actually be a human requirement.
There is an instinctive fear that overhauling the parts of our economies that emit greenhouse gases would spell economic doom and gloom. But the reality is much brighter. As the Intergovernmental Panel
Jane Velez-Mitchell says droughts, floods and fires plaguing the United States are in-your-face evidence of climate change.
Some developing countries have oversized carbon footprints because they manufacture so much of our junk, and their factories are sending smog back our way.
Per il secondo anno consecutivo, il colosso torinese è leader indiscusso tra le aziende italiane per l'impegno e i risultati conseguiti sul tema Orgoglio italiano: per il secondo anno consecutivo, il Gruppo Fiat è leader indiscusso tra le aziende italiane per l'impegno e i
The practical concern for humanity is the high climate sensitivity and the eventual climate response that may be reached if all fossil fuels are burned" - Hansen et al.

The UK government has made much of claims that its climate policies have been successful in reducing carbon emissions. This claim is based on the data used to create the national inventories required under
If wasted food were a country, it would be the world's third largest contributor to climate change, after China and the U.S.
Established strategies for piloting projects and educating leaders make China uniquely able to bring environment-benefiting innovations to gigascale.
The issue-packed title of this event-"Our Democracy in Crisis: The Rise of the Total Surveillance State and the War on a Free Press"-offers a panelist a number of potential targets. Given the expertise of other panelists on the specifics of surveillance and journalism, I want to focus on what may seem like the least
Mark P. Mills has reappeared, and remarkably is repeating some of the same wild claims that we debunked last time (circa 1999-2003). As a public service, I've listed the most important documents...
Many countries have turned to the planet's forests to meet their need for renewable energy, burning wood chips and pellets produced at home or abroad in power stations to generate electricity. But a report
