Denmark adopts climate law to cut emissions 70% by 2030
Denmark’s parliament adopted a new climate law, committing to reach 70 percent below its 1990 emissions in the next eleven years.
Global carbon emissions growth slows, but hits record high
The runaway train that is climate change is about to blow past another milestone: Global fossil-fuel carbon dioxide emissions will reach yet another record high. Driven by rising natural gas and oil consumption, levels of CO2 are expected to hit 37 billion tons this year, according to new estimates from the Global Carbon Project, an initiative led by Stanford University scientist Rob Jackson.
Dangerous N2O emissions have been underestimated, says new report
Carbon dioxide is the main villain in most coverage of climate change, but it’s not working alone – other greenhouse gases like methane and nitrous oxide (N2O) also pose problems. Now, a new study has found that we’re releasing more N2O into the atmosphere than we thought, which may weaken our already-strained efforts to combat climate change.
Methane emissions from coalmines could stoke climate crisis
The methane emissions leaking from the world’s coalmines could be stoking the global climate crisis at the same rate as the shipping and aviation industries combined.
As Delhi chokes, power plants are set to miss emissions deadline
Ten coal-fired power plants near India’s capital of New Delhi are poised to miss a December deadline to install pollution control devices that would have curbed premature deaths linked to toxic emissions.
Singapore pushes shipping industry to use cleaner fuels to reduce carbon emissions
Singapore is pushing the shipping industry to use cleaner fuels such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) in a bid to reduce the city state’s carbon emissions, the Maritime and Port Authority’s (MPA) chief said on Friday.
US Justice Department issues subpoenas to automakers in California emissions probe
The US Justice Department has issued civil subpoenas to four major automakers, demanding that they disclose details on a deal struck with California in July to follow strict vehicle emissions standards, a source briefed on the matter said.
Singapore energy startups hope homegrown green solutions will lead to less carbon emissions
As the number of people recognizing the urgency of the climate crisis grows, so too does the clamor for green energy solutions – a cry which did not go unnoticed by the organizers of this year’s Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW).
Air France to offset daily CO2 emissions by next year

Big companies commit to slash emissions ahead of UN climate summit
Almost 90 big companies in sectors from food to cement to telecommunications are pledging to slash their greenhouse gas emissions in a new campaign to steer multi-nationals towards a low-carbon future, organizers said on Sunday.
Study offers verdict for China's efforts on coal emissions
Researchers from China, France and the US have evaluated China's success in stemming emissions from its coal-fired power plants (CPPs).
Air travelers may have to pay carbon charge to offset emissions
Air passengers may have to pay an extra ‘carbon charge’ on flights as part of a UK government initiative to reduce CO2 emissions and tackle the climate crisis.
CO2 emissions from aviation up
As the number of people flying regularly continues to rise, CO2 emissions from aviation have soared, rising by 26.3 percent in the last five years in Europe.
China greenhouse gas emissions soar 53.5% during 2005-2014
China’s climate-warming greenhouse gas emissions hit 12.3 billion tons in 2014, up 53.5 percent in just a decade, the Environment Ministry said on Monday, citing the country’s latest carbon ‘inventory’ submitted to the United Nations.
China's new emission rules take scalpel to bloated auto industry
China debuts one of the world's strictest standards for automobile emissions on Monday to reduce the country's notorious air pollution, a move some say also is designed to curb the runaway expansion of its automaking sector.
