5 Gigatonnes—the Gap Between Climate Science and Current Climate Cuts After Copenhagen?
A recent United Nations Environment Programme report, co-sponsored by the European Climate Foundation, shows that nations' pledges will deliver 60 percent of the emissions reductions needed to avoid a 2 degrees Celcius rise in temperature. The report highlights the gap between the pledges and the necessary reductions, and notes that the size of the gap depends on how fully nations implement their reduction pledges. The analysis shows that there are, however, policy options available that can close that gap. Visit the Emissions Gap Report's website to download the report in your language.
China slashes energy use, carbon emissions with industrial efficiency
Four years ago, the Chinese government adopted aggressive targets to improve energy efficiency in the industrial facilities responsible for most of China's energy use and carbon emissions. In the fall of 2009, ClimateWorks met with provincial leaders and technical experts in Shandong Province to learn how these industrial efficiency targets are being implemented in the 1,000 largest factories in China, which collectively consume one-third of all the energy in the country.
