Common Ground: Solutions for reducing the human, economic and conservation costs of human wildlife conflict

Common Ground: Solutions for reducing the human, economic and conservation costs of human wildlife conflict

Date: May 2008
Creator: World Wildlife Fund
Description: This report deals with the conflicts between wildlife and human development. Three cases studies are included, in Namibia, Nepal and Indonesia, respectively. Each location has different problems and contexts, but in all three countries, human lives and economic livelihoods are at stake, as well as the loss of habitat of threatened species. The authors advocate a species conservation approach based on land use planning integrated with human needs in order continue sustainable development.

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.

Turning Up the Heat: How Global Warming Threatens Life in the Sea

Turning Up the Heat: How Global Warming Threatens Life in the Sea

Date: February 1999
Creator: Berntson, Ewann A.
Description: This new report argues that rising temperatures have impacted the world's oceans to a far greater extent than previously acknowledged. Addressing topics such as sea-level rise, ocean circulation, coral reefs, sea birds and invertebrates, as well as the increasing threats to Salmon, the report predicts a dangerous chain reaction in marine ecosystems if global warming continues unabated. On the positive side, it also argues that decisive actions now to reduce pollution can slow the warming and preserve the world's oceans.

Getting Back in the Game: U.S. Job Growth Potential from Expanding Clean Technology Markets in Developing Countries

Getting Back in the Game: U.S. Job Growth Potential from Expanding Clean Technology Markets in Developing Countries

Date: May 2010
Creator: World Wildlife Fund
Description: This report highlights a significant, but rarely discussed, economic angle to the Senate’s deliberations on the American Power Act. Unlike the House-passed climate bill, which set aside one percent of revenues from emissions auctions for international clean technology investments, the American Power Act contains no such dedicated funding stream nor a program to guide these public investments. This lack of secure, long-term funding would limit the job-creating potential of the legislation by limiting the opportunities for American companies to export their energy technology to global markets.

Florida's Global Warming Solutions: A Study for: World Wildlife Fund

Florida's Global Warming Solutions: A Study for: World Wildlife Fund

Date: November 1999
Creator: Bernow, Stephen; Cory, Karlynn; Dougherty, William; Kartha, Sivan; Duckworth, Max; Ruth, Michael et al.
Description: This report assesses how the set of national actions presented in America’s Global Warming Solutions would affect Florida’s energy systems, carbon emissions and economy. This study finds that by 2010, the set of national actions to reduce global warming would decrease Florida’s primary energy use by 26 percent and its carbon emissions by 36 percent. They would also provide increasing annual savings reaching about $300 per-capita in 2010 and averaging about $110 per-capita per year between now and 2010. Thus, the State would cumulatively save about $17 billion over that period. The set of national actions would also create approximately 39,000 net additional jobs in Florida by 2010. They would reduce emissions of other pollutants and begin to shift the basis of the State’s economy towards more advanced, energy-efficient technologies and cleaner resources. The table below summarizes these results.
