G8 Recognizes Need to Act on Super Greenhouse Gases, Considers More Aggressive Stance on CO2

Green (Living) Review

July 2009 – As the Group of Eight began discussions on targets for reducing climate emissions, talk was circulating of a possible commitment to limit warming to 2?C. The only way to meet these goals however, will be to pursue fast and big cuts in both CO2 emissions, which are causing half of the warming, and non-CO2 emissions which are causing the other half. C scenario to stabilize CO2 at 450 ppm. Washington, D.C.,

The most important are 1) Strict new air pollution rules that ensure a huge amount of coal-fired capacity will be retired or constrained by 2016 2) Rock bottom carbon prices and 3) National level coal policies. In addition to the short term effect of these rules, coal has received a boost as European CO2 emissions have plummeted. This has led to an oversupply of CO2 emission permits, which cratered prices.

Renewable Revolution: Low-Carbon Energy by 2030

The Green Changemakers

However, this goal is not likely to be achieved if our only measure of success is emissions reductions; climate change is fundamentally a development issue, not a pollution problem. As a result, target-setting has failed to achieve needed reductions in energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to date. Between 1990 and 2007, world gross domestic product increased 156 percent while global energy demand rose 39 percent, pushing up global CO2 emissions by 38 percent.

The Act required tail pipe emissions to be reduced by 75% in just five years. We bring diverse groups together to advance environmental progress. When it comes to acting on climate, we need to keep our eye on the ball—and that ball is lowering greenhouse gas emissions in the fastest and biggest way. But all of the CO2 emissions of that fossil fuel use must be offset by sequestering carbon from the atmosphere in forests and soils.
