IEA Warns of Irreversible Climate Change in 5 Years if Fossil Fuel Infrastructure Remains Unchanged

In a new study launched November 9 by the International Energy Agency (IEA), weeks ahead of the Durban Climate Change Talks, scientists warn that if the current trend to build high-carbon generating infrastructures continues, the world’s carbon budget will be swallowed up by 2017, leaving the planet more vulnerable than ever to the effects of irreversible climate change.

German Nuclear Moratorium could Increase Emissions by 8 Mt

Oslo – This week’s decision by the German government to place a three-month moratorium on planned nuclear plant life extensions, in order to re-evaluate plant safety after events in Japan, would increase CO2 emissions by an estimated 8 Mt, if, as Thomson Reuters Point Carbon predicts, fossil fuels are used to fill this immediate generation gap. The plants in question, 8 in total, include 7 which were built before 1980 and whose lives were due to be extended by an average of 12 years and the Krümmel facility which is currently closed for maintenance but was due to . . . → Read More: German Nuclear Moratorium could Increase Emissions by 8 Mt

Geological Past of Earth could be Prologue to Future Climate

Boulder – The magnitude of climate change during Earth’s deep past suggests that future temperatures may eventually rise far more than projected if society continues its pace of emitting greenhouse gases, a new analysis concludes. The study, by National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) scientist Jeffrey Kiehl, has appeared as a “Perspectives” piece in January 14 issue of the journal, ‘Science’.

Building on recent research, the study examines the relationship between global temperatures and high levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere tens of millions of years ago. It warns that, if carbon dioxide emissions continue . . . → Read More: Geological Past of Earth could be Prologue to Future Climate
