New phase of globalization could undermine efforts to reduce CO2 emissions

—Dabo Guan, professor in climate change economics at UEA’s School of International Development and co-author on both studies. The carbon intensity of the next phase of global economic development will determine whether ambitious climate targets such as stabilizing at 2 °C will be met, and our findings depict the nascent rise of energy-intensive and emissions-intensive production activities in other Asian countries such as Vietnam and Pakistan.

Global CO2 emissions stalled for the third year in a row

Green Car Congress

Emissions are increasing in other developing countries: 6% for Indonesia and Malaysia; 9% for Pakistan and 12% for the Philippines. Information on the other two greenhouse gases, methane (CH 4 ) and nitrous oxide (N 2 O), is only available until 2012, as international statistics on agricultural activities—the main source of these emissions—are not updated as frequently as on energy and industry-related activities.

UN Environment report says national GHG pledges only bring one-third of reductions needed for Paris Agreement

Green Car Congress

The eighth edition of UN Environment’s Emissions Gap report, released ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn, finds that national pledges only bring approximately one-third of the reduction in emissions required by 2030 to meet climate targets, with private sector and sub-national action not increasing at a rate that would help close this gap. Given currently available carbon budget estimates, the available global carbon budget for 1.5 ˚C

Circle areas are proportional to values for (A and B) climate change, (C and D) human health (values for population over age 30), and (E and F) agriculture. Such information is needed, however, because multiple stakeholders are interested in mitigating climate change via control of non–carbon dioxide (CO 2 )–forcing agents such as BC, including the G8 nations (L’Aquila Summit, 2009) and the Arctic Council (Nuuk Declaration, 2011).

To this end, the GECF Secretary General reiterated the GECF’s readiness to support the Turkmen industry as it undergoes transformation on the back of the future energy trends, digitalization, and climate action. According to the latest available figures from the GECF Global Gas Outlook 2050, natural gas production in the Central Asian Republic is set to increase by 78% to reach the level of more than 141 billion cubic metres (bcm) by 2050, at a remarkable annual growth rate of 1.9%.

2018 Environmental Performance Index: Air quality top public health threat

Green Car Congress

Switzerland’s top ranking reflects strong performance across most issues, especially air quality and climate protection. Burundi, Central African Republic, Madagascar, the Bahamas, and Latvia slipped significantly in environmental performance, largely due to sub-par performance on climate change. Substantial populations still suffer from poor air quality, most notably in India, China, and Pakistan.

IEA working paper highlights potential role of natural gas in reducing global road transport CO2

Green Car Congress

Vehicle and fuel technology for natural gas is available today and relatively affordable, particularly in comparison with other alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs). The paper uses Brazil, India, Iran, Pakistan, the US and Europe as case studies. Tags: Climate Change Emissions Heavy-duty Natural Gas The global natural gas vehicle fleet has grown rapidly in the last 10 years, but still represents less than 1% of global transport fuel consumption.
