We must close the loopholes in Britain's carbon budget | Damien Morris 12.4.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
This is our opportunity to fix the accounting rules and keep national emissions within UK carbon budgets Last month the government made a landmark decision to reduce the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions to zero sometime this century . This makes Britain the first country to commit to one of the key pledges in the Paris climate agreement reached last December . This decision was prompted by a tireless, non-partisan campaign led by former Labour leader Ed Miliband, the UK’s first ever secretary of state for energy and climate change. Securing this commitment is an important new climate milestone for Miliband, who played a key role in establishing the UK Climate Change Act when he was in ...

Climate change plan: thinktank suggests policy both sides of politics can embrace 11.4.2016 The Guardian -- World Latest

The Grattan Institute has proposed adapting the Coalition’s Direct Action into a bipartisan policy that effectively cuts emissions

A climate change policy that could be both effective, and potentially supported by both major parties, has been proposed by the Grattan Institute in a new report that tries to find a pragmatic solution to the decade of toxic political debates on the issue.

Media reports have emerged suggesting Labor would adopt a policy of opening an inquiry into Australia’s energy industry, and shutting down the oldest and dirtiest power stations to lower emissions and create more demand for renewable energy.

Countries previously seen as climate change villains present shared vision on cutting emissions as Justin Trudeau meets Barack Obama at White House

The US and Canada declared they would help lead the transition to a low-carbon global economy on Thursday, in a dramatic role reversal for two countries once derided as climate change villains.

The shared vision unveiled by Barack Obama and Justin Trudeau ahead of a meeting at the White House commits the two countries to a range of actions to shore up the historic climate agreement reached in Paris last December.

EU set to emit 2bn tonnes more CO2 than Paris climate pledge 29.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page

Note from the European commission reveals emissions trading system allowance numbers are not in line with global 2C target

The EU is set to emit 2bn tonnes more CO2 than it promised at the Paris climate talks, threatening an agreement to cap global warming at 2C, a note from the European commission has revealed.

Carbon prices will rise too slowly to cut industrial emissions as much as needed, says a confidential note prepared for MEPs on the environment committee, which the Guardian has seen.

Donald Trump fined for pollution from one of his private jets 8.1.2016 Guardian: Environment

US presidential candidate joins the Bahrain royal family and Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox America whose aircraft have all fallen foul of the EU’s emissions trading scheme

A parliamentary petition backed by 500,000 people failed to bar Donald Trump from the UK, but the controversial US presidential candidate and climate change sceptic now faces a new deterrent: a fine for the carbon pollution from one of his enormous private jets.

The Bahrain Royal family, 21st Century Fox America, the company chaired by Rupert Murdoch, and British construction vehicle manufacturers JCB have also been asked to pay up for flights to and from the UK.

Paris climate deal: Here's how the world found common ground in landmark climate deal 12.12.2015 DNA: Urban Tales
After four years of global negotiations, two weeks of intense talks and more than a few sleepless nights, climate officials from almost 200 nations meeting in Paris are on the cusp of a landmark accord to arrest climate change. On Saturday, hosts France released the final text of a "Paris Outcome", this one devoid of the bracketed text that represented the sticking points yet to be resolved. Written in the opaque legal language that has evolved from more than two decades of UN climate talks, the pact sets the world a roadmap for breaking away from the fossil fuels that have powered the global economy since the Industrial Revolution. The new text is 31 pages, against 27 on Thursday and more than 50 at the start of the talks. National delegations have broken up to review the text, with hopes high that they will return to a formal session to adopt it later on Saturday. Following are details of the new draft: FINANCE Developed nations promised in 2009 to mobilise $100 billion a year by 2020 from both public ...

Welcome to the wonderful world of climate talks, where less means more 27.11.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest

The maths doesn’t add up – Australia’s emissions are trending up and yet we are meeting pledges to cut them. But it all makes sense in the complicated and chaotic world of climate negotiations

The numbers look clear. In 1990, Australia emitted 564m tonnes of carbon dioxide. In 2005 that rose to 611m. By 2014-15 that had fallen a bit to 565m. But in 2029-30, the latest published projections say we will emit 724m tonnes.

The incredible plan to make money grow on trees | Sam Knight 24.11.2015 Guardian: Environment
One of the most cutting-edge projects to tackle climate change is being pioneered in one of the most remote, undeveloped countries on earth. Does it have any hope of succeeding? By Sam Knight One day about five years ago, Frank Nolwo, a compact, quietly spoken boat skipper from the upper reaches of the Sepik river, in northern Papua New Guinea, woke up and headed into town. Nolwo, who is 42, has nine children. He was adding an extension to his house, and needed to buy some building materials. You do not just pop to the shops if you live in the upper Sepik. Nolwo left Kagiru, his village, in the early morning. Like other isolated clutches of palm-roofed houses on the river, Kagiru has no electricity, no mobile phone signal, and no road connecting it to anywhere else. Even by Papua New Guinean standards, the region is regarded as hot, poor and difficult to live in. When it rains, the place floods. When there is a drought, the creeks and streams dry up, stranding people and their canoes. It takes days to ...

India promises to be more energy efficient, pledges 33-35% cut in carbon intensity by 2030 2.10.2015 DNA: Popular News
India has promised to make its economy more energy efficient and cut the carbon produced per unit of GDP growth by 33-35% by 2030 from 2005 levels in a climate-change policy statement released ahead of a UN summit in Paris in December. India, the world's third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, also said it would target 40% cumulative installed power capacity from non-fossil fuel sources by 2030, though said this would require UN financial support. The pledges, submitted to the United Nations late on Thursday, were broadly in line with expectations, given emerging economies such as India have resisted setting specific targets to cut emissions. India is not yet prepared to go as far as China, the world's biggest emitter, which pledged at the end of June to reduce its carbon intensity by 60-65% by 2030, partly through the use of carbon trading. Beijing also said it would bring its absolute emissions to a peak by "around 2030". As well as not setting such a timeline, India did not give a commitment in its ...
