New phase of globalization could undermine efforts to reduce CO2 emissions

Green Car Congress

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. Some production activities are relocating from China and India to other developing countries, such as Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand, particularly for raw materials and intermediate goods production in energy-intensive sectors.

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. The report also covers an assessment of the potential contribution from reductions in short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs).

The next round of UN climate negotiations begins in Cancun today. ” The authors go on to say that reducing the non-CO 2 pollutants can delay additional climate warming by several decades. Technology is already available to reduce these climate-forcing agents, and doing so would produce strong collateral benefits.

—Surabi Menon, physicist and staff scientist in Berkeley Lab’s Environmental Energy Technologies Division. 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.
