Denmark has distinguished itself as the country moving the fastest toward the eventual replacement of fossil fuels. Its goal of 100 percent renewable energy
by 2050 is laudable, but the assumption that this path will reverse global warming while ...
It is well known that tropical deforestation is just as costly as carbon pollution when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions. But while research has mostly focused on forests that have been completely mowed down, scientists are now saying that ...
About 1% of all the tree species in the Amazon account for half of the carbon locked in the vast South American rainforest, a study has estimated.Although the region is home to an estimated 16,000 tree species, researchers found that just ...
Researchers will genetically modify tobacco plants to produce enzymes that can break down biomass
from forest raw materials. This may lead to a more effective, economic and sustainable production of biofuels.
Biorefining industries ...
Local farmers are adding their support to legislation that would divert revenue from California’s cap-and-trade program to biomass
plants that generate power by burning agricultural and urban green waste.Last month the Kern County Farm Bureau ...
A new report from the World Resources Institute finds that dedicating land to the production of biofuels, a form of renewable energy
made from plants, may undermine efforts to achieve a sustainable food future, combat climate change, and protect ...
A group of 78 scientists is criticizing an Environmental Protection Agency memo they say may dramatically undermine President Barack Obama's directive to cut planet-warming emissions.
In a letter to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, a ...
Burlington, Vermont is that state’s largest city, with a population of 42,000 people. It describes itself as “forward-thinking” which is what you’d expect from a city that once elected Senator Bernie Sanders as its mayor. So it’s no surprise that ...
Does combating climate change require burning the world’s forests and crops for fuel?It certainly looks that way, judging from the aggressive mandates governments across the globe have set to incorporate bioenergy into their ...
President Obama's signature environmental initiative, his Clean Power Plan, is designed to fight climate change and crack down on America's carbon-emitting power plants. But behind the scenes, a dispute is raging over obscure language that could ...
This week, President Obama is the chief guest of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at India's Republic Day celebrations. At the close of the historic visit, the two leaders are expected to announce cooperation on a suite of climate and clean energy
Surprising new research has sharply downgraded the perceived climate impacts of the gathering and burning of wood
by residents of poor and developing countries who rely on the fuel to keep warm and cook food.

Carbon emissions have been on the rise globally due to increased use of energy
The emissions are unfriendly to the environment in industrial production and other human activities, and thus leading to global warming and ...
In America’s low-carbon future, most cars will run on electricity, carbon dioxide will be stored underground, and homes and buildings will be hyper-efficient, guzzling less energy
even as the population grows. This is the vision of a new analysis ...
Governments can keep climate change in check at manageable costs but will have to cut greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2100 to limit risks of irreversible damage, a U.N. report said on Sunday.
