Coverage of carbon dioxide emissions since August 11, 2023.

Montrealers using app to save money and reduce food waste

"..."You're avoiding a lot of carbon dioxide emissions," said Dot. "All the carbon dioxide emissions necessary to grow and transport food to our table but also the greenhouse gasses that would be emitted in landfills, especially methane, which is 25 times more harmful for the environment than carbon dioxide. "..."


Germany's CO2 emissions are at their lowest in 7 decades, study shows CityNews Halifax

"...BERLIN (AP) Carbon dioxide emissions in Germany, Europe's biggest economy, dropped to their lowest level in seven decades as the use of coal declined unexpectedly sharply in 2023 and economic pressures weighed down production by energy-intensive industry, according to a study released Thursday..."


Gas lawn tools: A blast from the past?

"...Gas-powered leaf blowers blasted countless communities into noisy debates, but high emissions might mean they finally bite the dust. Major Canadian cities are considering a ban on gas-powered lawn and garden equipment to slash planet-heating carbon dioxide emissions. Battery-powered alternatives offer the same tools at similar expense, while reducing maintenance issues, fuel costs and pollution..."


2023 Was Another Record Year for Climate Change

"...This year, as global carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels reached a new high, the world fell further behind on its emissions targets. As 2023 drew to a close, the U. S..."

"...Global carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels and cement have increased by 1. 1% in 2023, hitting a new record high of 36. 8bn tonnes of CO2 (GtCO2), according to the 2023 Global Carbon Budget report by the Global Carbon Project..."


Heat pumps vs. AC: Report notes progress, challenges in reaching climate goals

"...“The world's climate ambitions hinge on our ability to make the global energy system more efficient,” IEA executive director Fatih Birol said. It was not all negative, however, as the report did note “strong gains” from certain countries and regions, with the European Union set to post a five per cent improvement this year, and the U. S..."


We should listen to a renowned scientists warning on climate change

"...In recent years, Dr. Hansen has argued that the scientific consensus, as reflected in the voluminous reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), greatly underestimates the rate and magnitude of future warming. Earlier this month, he and 17 colleagues forcefully stated their case in a peer-reviewed paper,Global Warming in the Pipeline, published by a University of Oxford journal..."


Global emissions set to fall by only 2% come 2030: UN report

Fossil fuel demand to peak before 2030 even with no new climate policies: report

"...The IEA report also urges governments to adopt a “build big” mentality. Electricity transmission and distribution grids need to expand by about two million kilometres each year by 2030 to reach the IEA's net-zero scenario, but the organization pointed out that building grids today can take more than a decade. “We need massive growth of battery energy storage and demand response; expanded, modernized grids; more dispatchable low-emission capacity, including fossil fuel capacity with CCUS, hydropower, biomass, nuclear and hydrogen and ammonia-based plants,” the report stated..."


In Hot Water, Clownfish Grow Up Quick Hakai Magazine

"...Timothy Ravasi, study coauthor and marine scientist at OIST, says that faster growth in a warming world could become a problem for wild clownfish. If climate change causes clownfish larvae to develop too quickly, they might arrive on an anemone when theres not enough food to go around. Or fish that grow faster might not swim as farif they settle close to home and mate with nearby fish, clownfish genetic diversity could suffer..."
