    The article discusses a report by Christian Aid and EcoEquity regarding the global emergency on climate heating. The report stresses the need for efforts to have a likelihood of preventing a climate catastrophe. It indicates that by 2010, emissions should intensify and fall by 4% every year to...

    The estimated global CO2 emission rates and the measured atmospheric CO2 concentrations show that only a certain share of the emitted CO2 accumulates in the atmosphere. For given atmospheric emissions of CO2, the effective lifetime determines its accumulation in the atmosphere and, consequently,...

  • Distributions, long term trends and emissions of four perfluorocarbons in remote parts of the atmosphere and firn air. Laube, J. C.; Hogan, C.; Newland, M. J.; Mani, F. S.; Fraser, P. J.; Brenninkmeijer, C. A. M.; Martinerie, P.; Oram, D. E.; Röckmann, T.; Schwander, J.; Witrant, E.; Mills, G. P.; Reeves, C. E.; Sturges, W. T. // Atmospheric Chemistry & Physics Discussions;2012, Vol. 12 Issue 2, p4073 

    We report the first data set of atmospheric abundances for the following four perfluoroalkanes: n-decafluorobutane (n-C4F10), n-dodecafluoropentane (n-C5F12), n-tetra-decafluorohexane (n-C6F14) and n-hexadecafluoroheptane (n-C7F16). All four compounds could be detected and quantified in air...

W.; Luo, M.; Alvarado, M.; Wells, K. C.; Apel, E. C.; Campos, T. L.; Singh, H. B.; Sachse, G. W. // Atmospheric Chemistry & Physics Discussions;2012, Vol. 12 Issue 2, p5705 

    The correlation between methanol (CH3OH) and carbon monoxide (CO) is of particular interest for characterizing biogenic and anthropogenic emission sources of CH3OH and other chemical species. Here, the CH3OH/CO enhancement ratio (ΔCH3OH/ΔCO) in the lower to middle troposphere is examined...

S.; Subin, Z. M.; Tian, H.; Zürcher, S.; Brovkin, V. // Biogeosciences Discussions;2012, Vol. 9 Issue 8, p11577 

    Global wetlands are believed to be climate sensitive, and are the largest natural emitters of methane (CH4). Increased wetland CH4 emissions could act as a positive feedback to future warming. The Wetland and Wetland CH4 Inter-comparison of Models Project (WETCHIMP) investigated our present...

    Human emissions of CO2 now outpace natural sources by two orders of magnitude. The current concentration of CO2 has not been substantially exceeded in the past 30 million years. Multiple model exercises indicate that consuming all fossil fuels would result in concentrations more than double...

    This article presents various diagrams of the negative effects of global warming and how they interrelate. Included are charts on rising sea-levels and carbon dioxide emissions, rates of polar ice melts and the effects on earth's absorption of larger amounts of sunlight, and a steady rate of...

  • EYE ON EARTH. Block, Ben // World Watch;Mar/Apr2009, Vol. 22 Issue 2, p5 

    The article reports that office -related carbon emissions are surging. According to a McKinsey & Co. analysis, emissions from the world's estimated 30 million computer servers and other information technology systems, has accounted for some 2 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions in 2007,...

  • Climate Change Is Unavoidable. Lane, Jan-Erik // Research in World Economy;Sep2012, Vol. 3 Issue 2, p1 

    One may show that CO2 emissions per GDP unit of economic output have fallen over time as well as that this ratio is smaller in rich than in poor countries. However, one cannot conclude that a halt to the growth in total emissions is likely in the future. Similarly, one may show that the CO2...
