Atlantic Array wind farm dropped by developer

Posted By Amir in Miscellaneous

Plans for a huge wind farm off the north Devon coast have been shelved.

Developer RWE Innogy is pulling the plug on the 240-turbine Atlantic Array project, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) told the BBC.

The scheme, which had not yet received the go-ahead, had attracted criticism, with environmentalists worried about its impact on marine wildlife in the Bristol Channel. -

Even If Emissions Stop, Carbon Dioxide Could Warm Earth for Centuries

Posted By Amir in Miscellaneous

Even if carbon dioxide emissions came to a sudden halt, the carbon dioxide already in Earth's atmosphere could continue to warm our planet for hundreds of years, according to Princeton University-led research published in the journal Nature Climate Change. The study suggests that it might take a lot less carbon than previously thought to reach the global temperature scientists deem unsafe. -

Why are fossil fuel reserves growing? – interactive

Posted By Amir in Miscellaneous

New data collated by Oil Change International (OCI) shows how global fossil fuel reserves are growing, while the world's remaining carbon budget is shrinking. As a result, the proportion of fossil fuel reserves that are 'unburnable' is growing quickly. The original version of this graphic was made by Kiln for OCI.
Scientists agree that at least two thirds and possibly more of the world's current -

Impacts of plant invasions become less robust over time

Posted By Amir in Miscellaneous

Among the most impressive ecological findings of the past 25 years is the ability of invasive plants to radically change ecosystem function. Yet few if any studies have examined whether ecosystem impacts of invasions persist over time, and what that means for plant communities and ecosystem restoration.

Poland Hosts Climate Talks, While Boosting Coal Industry

Posted By Amir in Miscellaneous

The juxtaposition has sparked outrage among environmental advocates gathered here. Some activists organized a loud coughing protest beside a massive set of inflatable lungs outside the coal conclave, while others clambered to the ministry rooftop to unfurl a mock national flag emblazoned with the words, "Who rules Poland? Coal Industry or the People?"

But while the side-by-side meetings seem a -

Which fossil fuel companies are most responsible for climate change? – interactive | Environment |

Posted By Amir in Miscellaneous

All but seven of the 90 companies found to have caused the climate crisis deal in oil, gas and coal – and half of the estimated emissions were produced just in the past 25 years. Some of the top companies are also funding climate change denial campaigns -

Study shows increased summer melting not increasing annual movement of Greenland ice sheet

Posted By Amir in Miscellaneous

A team with members from Scotland, the U.K. and Australia has found that despite record melting in the summer of 2012, the Greenland ice sheet is not slipping faster into the sea. The team reports on how they set up poles in the ice and measured their movement throughout the year in their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Global Carbon Emissions Set to Reach Record 36 Billion Tons in 2013

Posted By Amir in Miscellaneous

Global emissions of carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels are set to rise again in 2013, reaching a record high of 36 billion tonnes - according to new figures from the Global Carbon Project, co-led by researchers from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of East Anglia (UEA). -

Warming Since 1950s Partly Caused by El Niño?

Posted By Amir in Miscellaneous

A natural shift to stronger warm El Niño events in the Pacific Ocean might be responsible for a substantial portion of the global warming recorded during the past 50 years, according to new research at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). -
