Why climate change matters - Iowa Senate Democrats - 0 views

  •  
    A few good points. And whether we agree on climate science or not, the scientific debate should remain open and serene. In the end, there will always remain a degree of uncertainty, and the decision to act, and to what extent, becomes then a political choice.

Obama Sets Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Target « Row 2, Seat 4 - 0 views

  • President Barack Obama today announced that the Federal Government will reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution by 28 percent by 2020. Reducing and reporting GHG pollution, as called for in Executive Order 13514 on Federal Sustainability, will ensure that the Federal Government leads by example in building the clean energy economy. Actions taken under this Executive Order will spur clean energy investments that create new private-sector jobs, drive long-term savings, build local market capacity, and foster innovation and entrepreneurship in clean energy industries.

South Asia - 'CLIMATE SMART' WORLD WITHIN REACH, SAYS WORLD BANK - 0 views

  • If developed countries act now, a ‘climate-smart’ world is feasible, and the costs for getting there will be high but still manageable, says a new World Bank report released today.

Le Japon s'engage à réduire nettement plus ses émissions de CO2 | GreenUnivers - 0 views

  • Jusqu’ici, le Japon ne visait qu’une modeste réduction de 8% de ses émissions de gaz à effet de serre. Mais après la victoire de la gauche aux élections, le futur Premier ministre Yukio Hatoyama vient d’annoncer que le Japon relèverait cet objectif à -25% d'ici 2020 par rapport à 1990, comme il l’avait promis pendant la campagne. C’est plus ambitieux notamment que les 20% de réduction visés par l’Union européenne.

EU Energy Law Newsletter - 0 views

  • The Energy Council of Thursday 19th February focused on the second Strategic Energy Review. Inevitably, the Council was cautious agreeing concrete changes to existing rules or arrangements on the basis of the Strategic Energy Review. Instead it has cautiously welcomed many of the proposals tabled or announced in the Review, awaiting the detailed Commission proposals or the outcome of discussions in Council on the specific proposals. Nonetheless, the conclusions do demonstrate a willingness of the member States for some - probably gradual - change in developing a more Community approach to energy security issues.

Terminology: "Global Warming" or "Climate Change?" - 0 views

  •  
    The terms "global warming" and "climate change" are often used interchangeably. I've pretty much used "global warming" over the years, but now I'm making the switch to "climate change:" It's the term used by the United Nations, academia, and it's more inclusive, since "change" can refer to increased rain, drought, or any type of weather event other than just warming.

    So is there really a difference in definitions?
