Climate change: 'Monumental' deal to cut HFCs, fastest growing greenhouse gases - BBC News

Climate change: 'Monumental' deal to cut HFCs, fastest growing greenhouse gases - BBC News | Climate change negotiations and cooperations | Scoop.it
Countries meeting in Rwanda have agreed a "monumental" deal to phase out gases used in fridges that are worsening global warming.
Cyril Cassisa's insight:
Like the Paris Climate Agreement, this HFC amendement of Montreal Protocol seems ambitious regarding what it is writing on paper. However, concrete reduction actions are always planned to late and leave huge uncertainty on what will happen and on the accuracy to reach the long term goal. 
As Paris, the good point is that all countries commit. Hope that they will stay in forever (or as long as possible). :)

Mapped: The countries with the highest carbon price | Carbon Brief

Putting a price on CO2 is one of the most effective ways to tackle climate change - at least in theory - but which county has the highest carbon price?
Cyril Cassisa's insight:
While extending its coverage worldwide, carbon prices remain too low to accelerate significantly the needed energy transition! But it is a first step, with a carbon pricing instrument in place, policy makers can now show us their climate change commitments by rising prices.

UNEPLive - Emissions-Impacts-Climate change

UNEPLive - Emissions-Impacts-Climate change | Climate change negotiations and cooperations | Scoop.it

This sixth UNEP Emissions Gap Report provides a scientific assessment of the mitigation contributions from the submitted INDCs. As in the previous reports, it then compares the resulting emission levels in 2030 with what science tells us is required to be on track towards the agreed target of a global average temperature increase below 2°C by 2100. 

Cyril Cassisa's insight:

Nice UNEP GAP report 2015 adding more assessments to last UNFCCC INDC report (http://newsroom.unfccc.int/unfccc-newsroom/indc-synthesis-report-press-release/).

We also developed a tool to assess party's INDC mitigation targets at global and domestic level (emissions gap, economic impact at sectoral levels, optimal abatement cost, carbon value...).

Do not hesitate to contact me, if you would like more information about it.

China and France say Paris climate pact should have five-year reviews

China and France say Paris climate pact should have five-year reviews | Climate change negotiations and cooperations | Scoop.it
François Hollande and Xi Jinping say that any climate change deal agreed in Paris must include future checks on whether countries are cutting emissions
Cyril Cassisa's insight:

This declaration is a good little step foward.

However, I need to look closer because the article does not say if the verification will be done by international bodies, neither say if it will be applicable to all parties :).

 

China and France has never been disagreed on this point. Moreover, 5 years reviews will perfectly fit with Chinese Five Year Plan process meaning that it won't bring them any additional work to do if verification is domestically leaded.

 

Good step forward, but much more steps are needed in COP21 to achieve a great deal. 

 

Jia You. Bon courage.

If there is an energy transition away from fossil fuels under way, it has so far moved painfully slowly. The share of renewables and nuclear power in the world’s energy mix rose to a new high of 13.7 per cent last year, according to the latest BP
Cyril Cassisa's insight:

I really like this sentence of the article: 
''The share of renewables and nuclear power in the world’s energy mix rose to a new high of 13.7 per cent last year, according to the latest BP Statistical Review of World Energy. That might sound encouraging, until you consider that it was 13.1 per cent in 1995."

Climate Expert Says China Is A Decade Ahead Of Schedule On Reducing CO2 Emissions - Forbes

One of China’s top climate scientists says that China is on track to see carbon dioxide emissions peak between 2020 and 2022, almost a decade earlier than the Chinese leadership has promised, and to make its economy far more energy-efficient than expected. Beijing’s Energy Research Institute’s Senior Researcher Jiang Kejun also [...]

Interesting.

I would like to know more:

- which countries are beneficial from this financial flows ? (for example, China always said that they won't ask from this 100 bn$ climate finance).

- in the future, 100 bn$ should be 50-50 mitigation/adaptation, how will we do to balance it ?

- Climate finance pledge from developed to developping countries should be additional to exisiting finance for support development of developing countries. Is it the case of OECD numbers ?
