Oil and Gas Company Climate Commitments Are Encouraging—But They Need to Do More

Conservancy Talk

Shell’s ambitious “Sky” scenario outlines the potential for “net zero” CO2 emissions by 2070. And because methane is a far more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, continued use of natural gas will also require that methane emissions in the production and transport of natural gas be tightly controlled. to end flaring and are adopting practices such as green completions that rein in methane emissions.

Non-CO2 Pollutants Are Promising Target in Cancun, Could Delay Warming by Several Decades

Green (Living) Review

The scientific case for such a strategy was laid out today, on the eve of the UN climate negotiations in Cancun, in an Op Ed in The New York Times ( [link] ) by Professor Veerabhadran Ramanathan, from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, and his colleague, Professor David Victor.

Don’t Just Complain, Blame, or Worry. Do Something: How You Can Take Action for a Sustainable Planet

Conservancy Talk

The Act required tail pipe emissions to be reduced by 75% in just five years. We rather easily met the five-year deadline, and continue to reduce auto pollution every year. But as threats to nature became more complex, we realized this strategy would only take us so far. Photo credit: NASA Here in Ohio, you can see some of these strategies at work. A couple of years later, the US National Academy of Sciences completed an exhaustive study as well.
