The UN's New York climate summit is guilty of a major sin of omission 22.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Despite a key role in cutting emissions, the ocean is completely absent from Ban Ki-moons climate meeting for world leaders On Tuesday, the UN headquarters in New York is hosting the largest gathering of world leaders ever to address climate change . It is an enormously important event, intended to catalyse action ahead of next years Paris conference where leaders have pledged to reach a new global climate agreement, and a great credit to secretary general Ban Ki-moon and his team. But the summit is guilty of a major sin of omission: the ocean, over two-thirds of the planet, is completely absent from the programme. It is neither one of the eight action areas on which governments and other key players are invited to announce bold new commitments, nor one of the thematic sessions where states and stakeholders will share solutions. The summit is keeping its feet firmly on dry land and is highlighting the huge gap between scientific knowledge and political ...

China's now world's largest carbon emitter, emissions more than US, EU combined 22.9.2014 DNA: Mumbai
World carbon dioxide emissions will hit a record high this year, driven by China's growth and keeping the world far off track from the deep cuts needed to limit climate change, a study said on Sunday. More than half of proven fossil fuel reserves may have to stay in the ground if governments are serious about a promise made in 2010 to limit a rise in average temperatures to 2 degrees Celsius (3.6F) above pre-industrial times, the Global Carbon Project report by leading research institutes said. Emissions of carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels and cement production will climb by 2.5% to a new record 37.0 billion tonnes in 2014, according to the report issued before a United Nations climate summit in New York on Tuesday. Emissions of the main greenhouse gas rose 2.3% in 2013 to 36.1 billion tonnes, said the report, which was published in the journal Nature Geoscience. "A break in current emission trends is urgently needed," according to the report by experts in Britain, Norway, Switzerland, Austria, ...
