New phase of globalization could undermine efforts to reduce CO2 emissions

Green Car Congress

A new study finds that the growth of carbon production from Chinese exports has slowed or reversed, reflecting a “new phase of globalization” between developing countries that could undermine international efforts to reduce emissions. The study, involving researchers from the University of East Anglia (UEA) and colleagues in China and the United States, investigated how complex supply chains are distributing energy-intensive industries and their CO 2 emissions throughout the global South.

International study identifies 14 key measures to reduce methane and black carbon emissions; reduction in projected global mean warming of ~0.5 °C by 2050

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. The team considered about 400 emission control measures to reduce these pollutants by using current technology and experience.

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. In the current policy scenario, total emissions for transport are 9.7 GtCO 2 direct emissions and 0.28

Low-lying and other vulnerable countries calling for fast action on non-CO2 global warming pollutants

Green Car Congress

The next round of UN climate negotiations begins in Cancun today. Ramanathan and Victor highlight the importance of aggressively reducing CO 2 emissions, but note that the road ahead will be long, difficult, and expensive, and that “in the meantime, a fast-action plan is needed.” ” The authors go on to say that reducing the non-CO 2 pollutants can delay additional climate warming by several decades.

However, these observations are too incomplete to be used in climate models.) “ We may be underestimating the amount of black carbon by as much as a factor of four ,” Menon says. Atmospheric aerosols are tiny particles containing nitrates, sulfates, carbon and other matter, and can influence the climate.
