The common complaint about compact fluorescent lights, the harsh glow, may have an energy-efficient answer, especially as LED bulbs fall under $10 each.
In USA incandescent bulbs, including newer, more efficient halogen models, still accounted for roughly 75 percent of general lighting sales. LED bulbs are getting cost effective. Policy makers need to wake up to incentivise.
Global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) reached a new record of 34.5 billion tonnes in 2012. Good nws is: increase in global CO2 emissions in that year slowed down to 1.1% which was less than half the average annual increase of 2.9% over the last decade. This development signals a shift towards less fossil-fuel-intensive activities, more use of renewable energy and increased energy saving.
The news signals a shift towards natural gas, more use of renewable energy and increased energy saving.The slowing of economy is also a factor to recon with.
Etiopia's Ashegoda windfarm cost €210m and builds on plan to create 'climate resilient' economy by 2025. More than two-thirds of the population of sub-Saharan Africa is without electricity, and more than 85% of those living in rural areas lack access.
Trade off? Media reports in 2011, however, noted that about 700 farmers had lost some or all their land to make way for the turbines. They were given financial compensation but some complained the money was too little. Same story as Hydroelectric dams that displace people?
The two leaders agreed to immediately convene the India-U.S. Task Force on hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) to discuss, inter alia, multilateral approaches that include using the expertise and the institutions of the Montreal Protocol to phase down the consumption and production of HFCs, based on economically viable and technically feasible alternatives, and include HFCs within the scope of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its Kyoto Protocol for accounting and reporting of emissions.
When Prime Minister Manmohan Singh launched India's National Action Plan on Climate Change in 2008 and its target to reduce energy intensity, he was hailed as a global leader for taking bold steps to address ...
A leaked draft of a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said that climate change could reduce output and send prices higher in a period when global food demand is expected to soar.
Demand is expected to rise as much as 14 percent each decade as the world population is projected to grow to 9.6 billion in 2050, from 7.2 billion today, and as many of those people in developing countries acquire the money to eat richer diets.
1.4 billion acres of dense Amazon forest is the world's natural major carbon sink has 390 billion individual trees of 16000 species Half of the trees belong to only 227 species.
6,000 tree species out of 16000 in Amazon have a population of less than 1,000 individuals, which makes them eligible for the IUCN red list.
"Just like physicists' models tell them that dark matter accounts for much of the universe, our models tell us that species too rare to find account for much of the planet's biodiversity. That's a real problem for conservation, because the species at the greatest risk of extinction may disappear before we ever find them," says Mike Silman, an ecologist and co-author of the paper.
Water scarcity will increase around the world due to climate change, with more than 500 million people affected if mean global warming is limited to 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), based on modeling studies by the Potsdam Institute for...
paying to India's top engineering institutes, the IITs, have failed to find a place in the world's top 200 universities, and the reason, according to an IIT director, is that they couldn't pay to be even considered for a global ranking.
National Snow and Ice Data Center says expanse of ice in Arctic on 13 September was sixth-lowest of all time
Overall, the Arctic has lost 40% of its sea-ice cover since 1980, and 75% of its volume. Most scientists believe the ocean at the north pole could be entirely ice-free in the summer by the middle of the century – if not sooner.
