Can avoid worst impacts of climate change if emissions decline steeply

January 14th, 2013 by University of Reading

Tough limits on global emissions of greenhouse gases could avoid 20% to 65% of the damaging effects of climate change by 2100, according to research led by the University of Reading‘s Walker Institute and published in the paper ‘A global assessment of the effects of climate policy on the impacts of climate change‘ in the […]

Pre-industrial land use changes still raising atmospheric temperature

July 12th, 2012 by Institute of Physics

A climate model accounting for the carbon dioxide (CO2) released into our atmosphere before the industrial revolution has been used to show the detrimental effect of carbon emissions on global temperature in the long-term. In a study ‘Attribution of atmospheric CO2 and temperature increases to regions: importance of preindustrial land use change‘ published on 4 […]

Reducing carbon emissions by improving global equality

October 29th, 2010 by International Journal of Global Warming

Reducing the inequalities between rich and poor nations could be the main driver for avoiding the worst effects of climate change and even reducing atmospheric levels of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, according to UK researchers writing in the International Journal of Global Warming. Gemma Cranston and Geoffrey Hammond of the University of Bath, have […]
