  • Global warming is the rising average temperature of Earth's atmosphere and oceans since the late 19th century and its projected continuation. Since the early 20th century, Earth's average surface temperature has increased by about 0.8 °C, with about two thirds of the increase occurring since 1980. Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and scientists are more than 90% certain that most of it is caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases produced by human activities such as deforestation and the burning of fossil fuels.

  • Carbon offsets are an innovative tool for allowing companies and individuals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions beyond what they can easily achieve on their own. In the past two years, interest in carbon offsets has grown dramatically as companies and concerned consumers have sought ways to help mitigate climate change. However, the global market for voluntary carbon offsets is currently unregulated, which has led to growing concerns about whether buyers are really getting what they are paying for.

  • In Hawaii, local production currently accounts for about 18 percent of the total amount oflettuce consumed. Major production areas in Hawaii include Mountain View and Waianae for leafy and semi-head lettuces and Kula and Kamuela for iceberg types. Smaller areas of production are found throughout the state, and lettuce is also grown year-round in most home and community gardens. Hawaii's commercial production decreased by more than 35 percent over the past few years due to the tomato spotted wilt virus, a devastating, thrips-trans- mitted disease.

  • Even in the northern hemisphere, where the impact could be less than elsewhere, the effects from a rise of two degrees will be felt by every town and city. As more and more of the world’s population crowds into cities, the urban environment needs to become a better place to live: a place that improves health, well-being and economic prosperity while simultaneously – and dramatically – reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This means re-designing how we think and how we organise our lives. It requires courage, vision and leadership.

  • It is widely accepted that a modal shift towards railways can contribute to meeting EU targets on climate protection and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. A stronger role for rail will help to achieve real progress towards the 2020 target of a 20% cut in the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions. However, concerted action must be taken by governments and policy-makers to help bring this about. The rail sector is doing its part, having already agreed on a voluntary target for 2020, to cut its 1990 levels of specifi c emissions by 30%.

  • Liquid fuel consumption by medium- and heavy-duty vehicles (MHDVs) represents 26 percent of all U.S. liquid transportation fuels consumed and has increased more rapidly—in both absolute and percentage terms—than consumption by other sectors. In early recognition of these trends, which are forecast to continue until 2035 (DOE, EIA, 2009), the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA; Public Law 110-140, Dec. 19, 2007), Section 108, was passed, requiring the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), for the first time in history, to establish fuel economy standards for MHDVs.

  • In January 2009 WWF-UK launched its One Planet Food programme, which aims to reduce the environmental and social impacts of food consumption in the UK. We work across the food chain to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGEs), protect biodiversity and reduce the impact of food on finite water resources. The aim has always been to move away from unsustainable food choices, towards sustainable ones that support global agriculture and biodiversity. Since 1960 the world’s population has doubled, increasing the demand for food and impacting on the climate and our ecosystems.

  • In many ways, local authorities are well placed to pursue measures which improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. For example, policies designed to reduce the impact that transport has on air quality by tackling congestion and encouraging a shift to public transport, walking and cycling should also reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Measures to improve energy efficiency and cut energy demand should also reduce air pollutants that are produced during electricity generation.

  • This document should be of interest to a broad audience interested in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the atmosphere. It was developed for regulatory organizations, project developers, and national and state policymakers to increase awareness of existing and developing monitoring, verification, and accounting (MVA) techniques. Carbon dioxide (CO2) sinks are a natural part of the carbon cycle; however, natural terrestrial sinks are not sufficient to absorb all the CO2 emitted to the atmosphere each year.

  • The World Bank’s mission is to alleviate poverty and support sustainable development. Climate change is a serious environmental challenge that could undermine these goals. Since the Industrial Revolution, the mean surface temperature of Earth has increased an average 2° Celsius due to the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Most of this change has occurred in the past 30 to 40 years, and the rate of increase is accelerating. These rising temperatures will have significant impacts at a global scale and at local and regional levels.

  • Climate change is a serious environmental challenge that could undermine the drive for sustainable development. The global mean surface temperature has increased by an average of 0.6° Celsius (°C) over the last 100 years, largely due to the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere (IPCC, 2002). Most of this change has occurred in the past 30 to 40 years, and the rate of increase is accelerating. These rising temperatures will have significant impacts at a global scale and at local and regional levels.

  • The World Bank (IBRD) has issued over USD 2.3 billion equivalent of green bonds through 39 transactions in 15 currencies. 50 These are mostly 3-7 year, fixed and floating rate notes (i.e. which pay a variable rate of interest), issued via the AAA rated IBRD, designed to raise capital for projects that aim to combat climate change in developing countries. Projects funded include alternative energy installations, funding for new technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reforestation, watershed management and flood protection.

  • The Climate Change Act 2008 set out targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGEs) 2. At present it is estimated that 18-20% of GHGEs in the UK come from the food chain. In response to climate change, WWF-UK’s One Planet Food Programme (2009-12) set goals to reduce GHGEs from the consumption and production of food destined for the UK by at least 25% by 2020 and by 70% by 2050 (based on 1990 emission levels). This will require changes to both the supply side (food production) and the demand side (food consumption) within the food supply chain. As part of...

  • The first half of the Review considers how the evidence on the economic impacts of climate change, and on the costs and benefits of action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, relates to the conceptual framework described above. The scientific evidence points to increasing risks of serious, irreversible impacts from climate change associated with business-as-usual (BAU) paths for emissions. The scientific evidence on the causes and future paths of climate change is strengthening all the time.
