World Cup 2022 can inspire cool ideas 6.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
The planet needs new cooling technology and the World Cup in Qatar could provide it The World Cup is hotting up literally. A temperature of 38.8C on the pitch has already been recorded. Does this give the teams used to playing in a tropical climate an unfair advantage? One way to make things more equitable would be to air-condition the stadiums, which sounds mad until you realise that this is exactly what Qatar's organisers have said they'll do for the 2022 World Cup . And with daytime temperatures in Qatar often exceeding 45C during the day, such measures will be absolutely essential. The first problem the bid has to overcome is an investigation by Fifa's ethics committee into alleged corruption. However, a bigger obstacle might be to put on the tournament using solar and renewable energy, as they have promised. It's going to be an enormous engineering challenge but one well worth undertaking, because as global temperatures increase over the next century, there is going to be greater demand for ...

'Greenpeace has been brutal in targeting both India and the Manmohan Singh government. The push to go after Indian coal is driven by its long-term agenda. What is surprising is that China has not been meted out the same treatment, despite the fact that the rise of China as an economic power has been built around generating power from coal.

Chinese hints, US emission cuts fall far short of climate cure 11.6.2014 DNA: Popular News
China's hints that it will cap its soaring greenhouse gas emissions and a U.S. plan to cut emissions in the power sector, while representing a shift, do not add up to a strong cure for global warming by the world's top two emitters. Other nations have hailed Washington and Beijing for a newfound commitment to tackle climate change. Governments are working on a deal, due in Paris in late 2015, to slow rising temperatures to avert more heatwaves, floods and rising seas. Yet after a rush of enthusiasm, there are uncertainties -especially about China. On June 2, Washington said it planned to cut emissions from existing power plants by 30 percent below 2005 levels by 2030 as the centrepiece of climate action by President Barack Obama. Chinese officials followed up by saying Beijing is considering a cap, for the first time, on the nation's emissions. European Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard cautioned against celebrating about China, whose carbon dioxide emissions have almost quadrupled since 1990 amid ...
