Scientists plan urgent climate summit 9.2.2009 The Guardian -- Front Page
Scientists are to hold an emergency summit to warn the world's politicians they are being too timid in their response to global warming. Climate experts from across the world will gather in Copenhagen next month to agree a stark message to policy makers, which they hope will break the political deadlock on efforts to curb rising temperatures. The meeting follows "disturbing" studies that suggest global warming could strike harder and faster than expected. It comes ahead of a year of high-level political discussions on climate change, which climax with international negotiations in Copenhagen in December, where officials will try to hammer out a successor to the Kyoto protocol. Katherine Richardson, a marine biologist at the University of ...

Eco overhaul for quarter of UK homes 9.2.2009 The Guardian -- Front Page
More than one in four homes in the UK will be offered a complete eco-makeover under ambitious plans expected to be announced this week to slash fuel bills and cut global warming pollution. The campaign is thought to involve giving 7m houses and flats a complete refit to improve insulation, and will be compared to the 10-year programme that converted British homes to gas central heating in the 1960s and 1970s. Householders could also be encouraged to install small-scale renewable and low-carbon heating systems such as solar panels and wood-burning boilers. In total, it is thought the Department of Energy and Climate Change will commit to cutting a third of greenhouse gas emissions from households by 2020. The announcement by the energy and ...

Bushfires and warming: is there a link? 8.2.2009 Guardian: Science
Scientists are reluctant to link ­individual weather events to global warming, because natural variability will always throw up extreme events. However, they say that climate change loads the dice, and can make severe episodes more likely. Some studies have started to say how much global warming contributed to severe weather. Experts at the UK Met Office and Oxford University used computer models to say man-made climate change made the killer European heatwave in 2003 about twice as likely. In principle, the technique could be repeated with any extreme storm, drought or flood – which could pave the way for lawsuits from those affected. Bob Brown, a senator who leads the Australian Greens, said the bushfires showed what climate change could ...

Brown 'is not being green enough' 8.2.2009 Guardian: Environment
Gordon Brown's much-vaunted plan to beat the recession by going green lacks "coherence" and is being overtaken by rival plans around the world, the chair of the Environment Agency warns today. Chris Smith, a former cabinet colleague of the prime minister, said Britain risked being left behind in developing technologies such as carbon capture, where gases pumped out by polluting industries are compressed and stored under the sea to prevent them reaching the atmosphere and adding to global warming. Brown has boasted of how his own so-called "green new deal" would be bigger than Barack Obama's, relative to the size of their respective economies, but Lord Smith suggested that such claims were hollow, with few concrete initiatives beyond a push on ...

An environmental market 7.2.2009 Guardian: Environment
Is the (EU ETS) fatally flawed? The chief executive of , Vincent de Rivaz, dropped a bombshell. He last week in the Guardian as saying: "We like certainty about a carbon price ... [But] the carbon price has to become simple and not become a new type of subprime tool." Use of the poisonous word "subprime" from as senior a figure as De Rivas had the market scratching its head. "Hold on," people said, "Isn't the current design of the EU ETS, with the free allocation of carbon allowances to heavy emitters, largely due to the extensive and continuing lobbying in Brussels from energy companies such as .... EDF?" While those doing business in the carbon market would be the first to acknowledge that systems like the ETS are a long way from perfect, ...
