Ships must measure CO2 emissions under new EU law 26.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page

Ships will have to start monitoring emissions from 2018, in a first step towards curbing growing pollution from the sector

The shipping sector will, for the first time, have to monitor its carbon emissions under a law agreed by the European Union on Wednesday, intended as a step towards tackling a growing source of pollutants linked to climate change.

International shipping accounts for around 3% of the world’s emissions of carbon dioxide, a share which could increase to 18% by 2050 if regulation is not in place, according to the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).

This apparent hiatus in global warming has been fodder for skeptics - but among climate scientists, it has sparked a search for the "sink" that is storing all the missing atmospheric heat. Locating that sink matters, because it could tell researchers how long our current hiatus might last, says Ka-Kit Tung, an atmospheric scientist and applied mathematician at the University of Washington in Seattle. In Science, Tung and Xianyao Chen at Ocean University of China in Qingdao suggest that much of the missing heat has gone into the deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean. This is in contrast to a previous study that argued the heat went into the Pacific Ocean. The two ...
