Carbon Forestry Projects in Developing Countries: Legal Issues and Tools

Carbon Forestry Projects in Developing Countries: Legal Issues and Tools

Date: April 2000
Creator: Davis, Patsy
Description: Increasing awareness of the need for action on global warming has produced a search for ways to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and to sequester carbon to offset such emissions. At the present time, nations around the globe are hotly debating whether to put into force the Kyoto Protocol. To comply with such climate controls, industrialized countries will need to develop systems to control their own domestic emissions. Domestic corporations that emit GHGs will be required to limit their emissions and will also very likely be able to gain credit by investing in climate-beneficial projects in other countries. This paper focuses on the legal issues concerned with carbon offset projects involving forestry in developing countries.

New England's Global Warming Solutions: A Study for World Wild life Fund

New England's Global Warming Solutions: A Study for World Wild life Fund

Date: August 2000
Creator: Bernow, Stephen; Dougherty, William; Page, Tom; Dunbar, Jana & Goldberg, Marshall
Description: This report presents a detailed analysis of the energy impacts, carbon and pollutant emissions reductions, and economic benefits in New England of the national policies and measures analyzed in America’s Global Warming Solutions. That study indicated that the region would reap about one sixth of the net national employment created. As two years have passed since that study was begun, time has been lost for pursuing and implementing the policies and measures evaluated along the same temporal path. Now, achieving such benefits by 2010 would require an even more aggressive set and schedule of policies, or else the benefits would occur somewhat later in time. Nonetheless, these results show that a truly aggressive national policy commitment to the problem of climate change could achieve large near-term carbon emissions reductions along with environmental and economic gains.

Michigan's Global Warming Solutions

Michigan's Global Warming Solutions

Date: April 2000
Creator: Tellus Institute Resource and Environmental Strategies
Description: This report studies many changes in Michigan's energy system would help the U.S. reduce its global warming emissions, meet its Kyoto Protocol targets in the near term, and establish momentum for the deeper reductions needed for climate protection in subsequent decades. At the same time, they would contribute to the State's economic vitality, environmental integrity and quality of life.

GlobalWarming and Terrestrial Biodiversity Decline

GlobalWarming and Terrestrial Biodiversity Decline

Date: 2000
Creator: Markham, Jay R. & Markham, Adam
Description: This study demonstrates that rapid rates of global warming are likely to increase rates of habitat loss and species extinction, most markedly in the higher latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere. Extensive areas of habitat may be lost to global warming and many species may be unable to shift their ranges fast enough to keep up with global warming. Rare and isolated populations of species in fragmented habitats or those bounded by large water bodies, human habitation and agriculture are particularly at risk, as are montane and arctic species.

Climate Solutions 2: Low-Carbon Re-Industrialisation www.climaterisk.net A Climate Risk Report Climate Risk: A report to WWF International based on the Climate Risk Industry Sector Technology Allocation

Date: 2000
Creator: Dr.Mallon, Karl; Dr.Hughes, Mark & Kidney, Sean
Description: This report models the ability of low-carbon industries to grow and transform within a market economy. It finds that runaway climate change is almost inevitable without specific action to implement low-carbon re-industrialization over the next five years. The point of no return is estimated to be 2014.

Texas' Global Warming Solutions: A Study for World Wildlife Fund

Texas' Global Warming Solutions: A Study for World Wildlife Fund

Date: February 2000
Creator: Bernow, Stephen; Dougherty, William; Dunbar & Goldberg, Marshall
Description: This report outlined and evaluated a plan through which the United States could reduce its annual carbon-dioxide emissions by about 654 million metric tons of carbon (MtC) by 2010, 36 percent below businesses-usual projections for that year. This brings 2010 emissions to 14 percent below 1990 emissions, thereby exceeding the reductions required under the Kyoto Protocol of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The study also found that these reductions could be obtained with net economic savings, almost 900,000 net additional jobs, and significant decreases in pollutant emissions that damage the environment, and are harmful to human health, especially of children and elderly.

Climate Change and Extreme Weather Events

Climate Change and Extreme Weather Events

Date: September 2000
Creator: Vellinga, P. & Verseveld, W. J. van
Description: The report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change of 1995 has been taken as a starting point. Since 1995 many new observations and reports have become available. Much of the information on observations and studies on climate change and its impacts can be found through the Internet. Where possible we have made references, such that the reader can easily verify and review our sources. This study addresses three main questions: To what extent can the human influence on the climate system presently be measured? What can we expect for the short term and long-term future? To what extent will measures to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions affect the future climate?
