Recent climate policy commitments by the US, EU and China will lead to a million more jobs, over 100,000 fewer deaths and billions saved in fuel imports, a just-released study by the NewClimate Institute has revealed.
Commissioned by Climate Action Network, the study calculated co-benefits of reducing carbon emissions for the three economies, and also found that scaling up the commitments to limit climate change to 2°C with 100 per cent renewable energy would lead to savings of US$523 billion a year in reduced fuel imports, 1.3 million fewer premature deaths from air pollution and three million more green jobs.

Last week, the United States and Mexico announced new plans to increase bilateral cooperation on climate change and low carbon development. Timmons Roberts and Guy Edwards discuss the implications on global climate action.
The main reason soaring greenhouse gas emissions have not caused air temperatures to rise more rapidly is that oceans have soaked up much of the heat. But new evidence suggests the oceans’ heat-buffering ability may be weakening.
The Northwest Energy Star program is tracking the energy use of green homes for 13 months after they are occupied in an attempt to learn more about what features and technology enhance energy efficiency. The homes in this pilot program, begun in late 2012, are at least 30% more efficient that similar homes built toRead More
Our analysis shows that both municipally-owned utilities like Fort Collins Utilities and other member- or independently-owned utilities alike can achieve very real success while embracing efficiency and solar.
Generating electricity from biomass, such as urban waste and sustainably sourced forest and crop residues, is one strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions because it is carbon-neutral: it produces as much carbon as the plants suck out of the atmosphere.
The Green Climate Fund (GCF), expected to become the main vehicle for securing and distributing finance, moved one step closer to disbursing funds this week. Its resources will support a range of activities that reduce emissions or foster resilience—such as installing renewable energy, helping farmers grow drought-resistant crops and reducing deforestation.
Duncan Clark: The much-quoted three numbers of climate change have raised awareness of the simple fact there’s far more fossil fuel than we can burn and the more we extract, the greater the risk of climate catastrophe – but they don’t tell us the whole story
