Coalition branded climate-change deniers over North Sea oil boost 20.3.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Green party deplores budget’s £1.3bn handout to oil producers, as five-year plan for 120m more barrels is equated to extra 50m tonnes of CO2 Plans to boost the North Sea oil industry, announced in the budget , could lead to the UK emitting tens of millions more tonnes of CO2 over the next five years, Guardian analysis reveals. The chancellor, George Osborne, this week announced a package of measures in the budget designed to help boost North Sea oil production in the face of plummeting global oil prices. The moves include tax cuts on profits for oil producers, a new investment allowance, and funding for seismic surveys to help find oil deposits. In all, the measures will cost the exchequer £1.3bn over the next five ...

Obama to sign order cutting US government's greenhouse gas emissions 19.3.2015 DNA: India
President Barack Obama will sign an executive order on Thursday that will cut the US government's greenhouse gas emissions, the White House said in a statement. After signing the order, Obama will visit the Department of Energy to tour the building's rooftop solar panels. While there, he will attend a meeting of some of the federal suppliers, which will discuss their reduction targets, including initial commitments to disclose emission targets or set new reduction goals, the statement said, without providing details. Obama has made fighting climate change a top priority in his final two years in office. The White House sees it as critical to his legacy. The Environmental Protection Agency last year proposed a Clean Power Plan that set deadlines for states to submit proposals to meet power plant carbon emission reduction goals. A dozen states, including Kentucky, West Virginia, Indiana and Wyoming, sued the EPA last August soon after the plan was unveiled on grounds that its use of a certain section of ...

Scotland's carbon footprint grew 5.3% in a year, report finds 18.3.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Increasing reliance on imports has seen overall emissions rise, despite a fall in greenhouse gases produced by Scottish homes and businesses. Scotland’s carbon footprint appears to be on the rise according to a report published by the Scottish government , with the growth in consumer spending pushing up the country’s CO2 emissions. The country generated overall emissions of 76.8m tonnes equivalent (mte) of CO2 in 2012, the study found, an increase of 5.3% on the previous year. An economy powered by excessive consumption drives dangerous climate change, but often the true scale of our impact is hidden. Almost everything that we buy has a carbon cost which measures the energy, materials and water that goes into producing it. We now buy so much stuff from overseas that the impact of these spending choices is just as important as the emissions we generate here at home. As the economy has recovered our carbon footprint has shot up again by 5.3% in just one year. If we are serious about cutting our carbon ...
