Shocking analysis by country of years left to zero emissions

Green Blog

Because of extraordinary Mainstream media censorship in Lobbyocracy Australia, few Australians realize that Australia has already exceeded its “fair share” of permissible global GHG pollution before science-demanded zero emissions in 2050. Of course there is no way that Australia will meet its “all men are created equal” global obligations and cease polluting after having already in July 2011 achieved its “fair share” of the terminal 600 Gt CO2 global GHG pollution “budget”.

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

Green (Living) Review

Low-lying island states led by the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) and Mauritius have proposed phasing down HFC production and consumption under the Montreal Protocol ozone treaty. These HFCs have global warming potentials of up to 14,800 times greater than CO2.” to support its proposal to phase down HFCs with high global warming potentials. “We Washington, D.C.,

Analysis by country of fossil fuel burning-based Carbon Debt and Carbon Credit

Green Blog

Fossil fuel burning yielding the greenhouse gas (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major component of man-made global warming. In a 2008 letter to Australian PM Kevin Rudd, NASA’s Dr James Hansen provided a breakdown of global responsibility for fossil fuel-derived CO2 pollution between 1751 and 2006 that is summarized below as a percentage (%) of the Historical Climate Debt (1751-2006) of 346 Gt CO2. million out of a total global population of 6,983.2

Island Nations can fight Climate Genocide with Carbon Debt & Carbon Credit Analysis

Green Blog

The World is increasingly threatened by man-made global warming due to pollution of the atmosphere with greenhouse gases (GHGs), principally carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4), with this GHG pollution deriving mostly from fossil fuel burning and from land use (agriculture and deforestation). Global avoidable mortality since 1950 ”, “ Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History ” and William Blum’s “Rogue State”).

Small Island Nation Leads Push for Biggest Climate Opportunity of 2010

Green (Living) Review

Although HFCs – used as coolants in air conditioning, refrigeration, and foam-blowing applications – only account for about 2 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions today, they are growing so fast that they could become up to 45% of global CO2 emissions by 2050 under a scenario that stabilizes CO2 emissions at 450 ppm, according to the Velders paper. Goal is up to 209 billion tonnes of CO2-equivalent, Nearly 10% of total mitigation needed to stay below 2?C

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. The production of ammonium nitrate fertiliser, which is indispensable to conventional farming, produces vast quantities of nitrous oxide – a greenhouse gas with a global warming potential some 320 times greater than that of CO 2.
