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 scientist’s 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..."


Transforming Climate Action: Ensuring the science is safe

"...The ocean’s supreme power for carbon sequestration has drawn Transforming Climate Action researchers to focus on it as a potential gamechanger in the fight against global warming. They’re hoping to learn if the ocean’s natural abilities to absorb CO2 from the atmosphere can be amplified to help us meet net zero carbon targets by 2050 and avoid the worst impacts of a hotter planet..."


CRD to vote on studying impact of joining lawsuit against ‘big oil' firms

"...ExxonMobil’s public statements were contradictory to its own scientists finding, in the 1970s, that fossil fuel use would cause climate change. A study released this year in the journal Science found the company’s modelling accurately predicted the rate of global warming that would occur each decade in response to rising atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations..."


Earth facing dire sea level rise — up to 20m — even if climate goals met

"...A report released Thursday by the International Cryosphere Climate Initiative, compiled by more than 60 scientists and policy experts, is sounding the alarm on new modelling data that indicates the 2015 Paris Agreement is woefully out-of-date. The consortium is urging world leaders to take stock of new research ahead of the United Nations' COP28 climate conference later this month. According to the report, the only road forward is ensuring that global temperatures do not rise over 1..."


DeBriefed 17 November 2023: Countries fail 1.5C test; US and China agree on renewables; Why runners care about climate change

"...WRI REPORT: The World Resources Institute’s “state of climate action 2023” report found that “​​countries are falling behind on almost every policy required to cut greenhouse gas emissions”. The Guardian reported that, of the 42 indicators assessed, electric vehicle sales is the only one that is progressing on track. To limit global warming to 1..."


Q&A: Warming of 2C would trigger ‘catastrophic’ loss of world’s ice, new report says

"...Holding global warming of 2C would also not be enough to “prevent extensive permafrost thaw”, the authors say, bringing additional warming from the resulting CO2 and methane emissions. A 2C world would also see “widespread negative impacts on key fisheries and species” in polar and near-polar oceans..."


‘No end in sight’ to rising greenhouse gas emissions: World Meteorological Organization

"...Last year, global averaged concentrations of the most important greenhouse gas - carbon dioxide (CO2) - were a full 50 per cent above the pre-industrial era, marking a first, and continued to grow in 2023. Going the wrong way Methane concentrations also grew and levels of nitrous oxide, the third main gas, saw the highest year-on-year increase on record from 2021 to 2022. “Despite decades of warnings from the scientific community, thousands of pages of reports and dozens of climate conferences, we are still heading in the wrong direction,” said Petteri Taalas, the WMO Secretary-General..."


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

"...Governments are making insufficient progress in slashing greenhouse gas emissions to avert the worst impacts of global warming, according to a United Nations report released Tuesday..."


Canada, major fossil-fuel producers failing climate targets, jeopardizing transition

"...Canada and other major fossil-fuel-producing countries are failing to meet targets to keep global warming in check, a newly released major international report warned Wednesday, putting the world’s energy transition at risk..."


Canada, other countries failing to meet climate change targets: report

"...The 2023 Production Gap report says the countries are planning to produce 110 per cent more fossil fuels in 2030 than is consistent with keeping global warming to 1. 5 C above pre-industrial levels, and 69 per cent more fossil fuels than what's in line with a 2 C target. “These plans throw the global energy transition into question..."
