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.,

He made the point that the Montreal Protocol (the “volunteer brigade”) is ready and able to put out the “fire” that HFCs would cause with regard to climate change, and that the world cannot wait for the Kyoto Protocol (the “firefighters”) – where HFC emissions are included as one of the six gases in the basket – to take action. “We Mauritius , another island nation vulnerable to the near-term impacts of climate change, announced that it would officially co-sponsor FSM’s proposal.

We all know that we have to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution and eventually reach zero emissions. Indeed top climate scientists and biologists are telling us that reaching zero emissions is not enough – we then have to reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration from the current 394 parts per million (ppm) to 350 ppm (according to 350.org ) and thence to 300 ppm ( according to the latest science-informed 300.org ). tonnes CO2 per person.

10 reasons why organic can feed the world

The Green Changemakers

The ‘Dream Farm’ model, first proposed by Mauritius-born agroscientist George Chan, sees farms feeding manure and waste from livestock and crops into biodigesters, which convert it into a methane-rich gas to be used for creating heat and electricity. Greenhouse gas emissions and climate change Despite organic farming’s low-energy methods, it is not in reducing demand for power that the techniques stand to make the biggest savings in greenhouse gas emissions.
