Without commercial carbon capture, it's 'game over', E.ON boss tells government 17.3.2009 Guardian: Environment
Chief executive Paul Golby says technology will only be developed with state funding Leading energy industry executives today called on the government to ensure the development of carbon capture and storage becomes commercially viable. Paul Golby, chief executive of E.ON UK said the commercial development of the technology, which stops the carbon dioxide produced through burning fossil fuels being released into the atmosphere, was vital if the world was to meet the growing demand for energy and still tackle climate change. "For me it is clear there will be worldwide coal-fuelled growth in energy supply and that CCS is the most important technology in the fight against climate change.CCS is by no means the only low-carbon technology we are ...

Time to gamble on a post-carbon world 17.3.2009 Guardian: Environment
An economy that promotes quality over quantity will restore the confidence we need to live within our ecological means Think of the last time you backed away from a gamble. What was it that stopped you placing the bet – a lack of money or a lack of confidence? Climate change represents an unprecedented challenge on so many levels. But beyond the climate science and the political manoeuvring, humanity needs to collectively prepare itself for the single biggest psychological challenge it has ever faced: the transition to a post-carbon society. And that's where the psychological analogy with a poker game comes in. Some suggest that a lack of liquidity spells disaster for the ambitious emissions cuts that are so desperately needed, ...
Consuming nations should pay for emissions, says China 17.3.2009 Guardian: Environment
Tough stance on responsibility for emissions could be crucial obstacle to US agreement on climate change in December Countries that consume rather than manufacturegoods should shoulder responsibility for the , China's top climate change negotiator said this week.

Since taking power, President Barack Obama has signalled his readiness to enter into an international agreement on reducing emissions, to be negotiated in Copenhagen. This is in contrast with ...

Europe must strip out the hot air from carbon trading permit scheme to face UN conference on climate with something solid Yesterday was day one of a — a phenomenon that will either save the world from rising carbon emissions, or is . One of the selling points of the is that it is taking place in the same venue as the hugely important conference of parties to the in December. Arriving there by metro in the drizzle this evening, I was confronted by a building site around which you have to walk to the west entrance of the euphemistically titled 'Bella' Centre. No, you can't gain access through the east entrance and no, the building works won't be complete by December. Yes, there is an enormous wind turbine gracing the main entrance though – ...

Economic crisis gives us a chance of repairing climate damage 17.3.2009 Guardian: Environment
Large-scale investment to fix global finances is an opportunity to move quickly to a low-carbon economy The financial crisis that started in May 2007 is a global catastrophe. As central banks, one after another, reduce interest rates towards zero, they risk the world economy falling into a global liquidity trap in which monetary and fiscal policies become ineffective and regulation becomes the main instrument for recovery. The effect of such a trap is to risk global depression and mass unemployment for years to come. In the background lurks another crisis — the risk of dangerous climate change. Although these changes are slow-moving, increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases will risk more climate catastrophes that will damage human ...

UK government halts solar energy grants 17.3.2009 Guardian: Environment
The government ran into a storm of criticism yesterday after quietly closing its grant programme for solar energy last week, which campaigners said made a mockery of its commitment to build a low-carbon economy. The controversial low-carbon buildings programme is a grant system aimed at boosting renewable energies including wind, biomass and solar. It was due to close this summer but last week the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) put an announcement on its website saying that applications for solar photovoltaic (PV) projects on public buildings such as schools and hospitals were running at such high levels that they had used up their allocated share of half of the £50m grant pot ahead of time. PV has proved to be the most ...
