2014-04-07 13:44 | Survival International, 7 April 2014 | A Bushman from the Central Kalahari is traveling 5,000 miles from his home in Botswana to tell the Prince of Wales, ‘We’re not poachers – we hunt to survive.’ In February Botswana’s President Khama was an honoured guest at a global anti-poaching conference in London, alongside Prince Charles and Prince William. The initiative resulted in the launch of Prince William’s United for Wildlife, drawing together seven big conservation organizations, including US-...

2014-04-07 09:57 | By Ed Crooks, Financial Times, 31 March 2014 | ExxonMobil, the US oil group, said it was “highly unlikely” that the world would cut greenhouse gas emissions sufficiently to keep global warming within the internationally agreed limit of 2C. In two reports on the implications of climate change for its business published on Monday, Exxon rejected suggestions that policies to cut emissions would leave many of its oil and gas assets “stranded” – incapable of being profitably developed.

2014-04-07 09:50 | The Australian, 3 April 2014 | Europe is unhappy with Australia's decision to drop climate change from the G20 agenda and is lobbying the Abbott government to reconsider. European Union officials say Australia has become completely “disengaged” on climate change since Tony Abbott was elected in September last year. They are disappointed with the Prime Minister’s approach, saying Australia was considered an important climate change player under Labor. One well-placed EU official has likened the...

2014-04-07 09:48 | EurActiv, 4 April 2014 | The UN's secretary-general has called on EU leaders to set an example and agree on an ambitious 2030 target at a Council Summit in June, that can be taken to a UN conference in Lima three months later, and shape a global, legally-binding treaty by the end of 2015. “Yesterday I [told] President Barroso and President van Rompuy that you must do it [agree a climate package] during the June summit meeting,” Ki-Moon said at a Brussels conference on 3 April.

2014-04-07 09:47 | By Kathy Chen and Stian Reklev, Reuters, 3 April 2014 | Authorities in China's southern city of Shenzhen, China's oldest carbon market, said on Thursday they had issued around 30 million carbon permits for the 2014 compliance year to participants in its emissions trading scheme. The market, launched last June, regulates carbon dioxide emissions from more than 630 local companies as part of China's efforts to rein in rapid growth of greenhouse gas emissions. The issue of permits for the current...

2014-04-07 09:44 | By Larry Elliott, The Guardian, 3 April 2014 | Battles over water and food will erupt within the next five to 10 years as a result of climate change, the president of the World Bank said as he urged those campaigning against global warming to learn the lessons of how protesters and scientists joined forces in the battle against HIV. Jim Yong Kim said it was possible to cap the rise in global temperatures at 2C but that so far there had been a failure to replicate the "unbelievable" success of...

2014-04-07 09:42 | By Alex Morales, Bloomberg, 3 April 2014 | In a world that has never produced so much oil and gas, the United Nations is seeking to persuade producers they need to leave three-quarters of their reserves in the ground and explore cleaner energy to combat climate change. “The fossil fuels we do use must be utilized sparingly and responsibly,” Christiana Figueres, UN climate chief, said in the copy of a prepared speech to the industry. “Three-quarters of the fossil fuel reserves need to stay in...

2014-04-07 09:41 | By Ed King, RTCC, 3 April 2014 | The UN’s climate chief has appealed to the oil and gas industry to become the solution rather than the problem to addressing the causes of global warming. In a speech today at the London headquarters of IPIECA, the industry’s association for environmental and social issues, Christiana Figueres said she wanted fossil fuel companies to drive investments in renewables and technologies to capture and store carbon dioxide. “We need, and are undoubtedly moving towards...

2014-04-07 09:40 | By Matthew Carr, Bloomberg, 4 April 2014 | The cost of polluting is poised to rebound after the European Union began reducing a record glut of permits to rescue the world’s biggest greenhouse-gas market. Carbon prices will climb 37 percent by the end of June, according to the median of 11 trader and analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg. Options data show traders are the most bullish in three years. Futures that tumbled as much as 92 percent from their peak in 2008 spurred EU lawmakers in...

2014-04-07 09:32 | By Oliver Milman, The Guardian, 2 April 2014 | Tasmania’s new Liberal government is set to outline an expansion of logging in areas earmarked for protection, despite the forestry industry voicing its support for the peace deal that set out the reserves. Will Hodgman, the Tasmanian premier, is expected to unveil the government’s alternative plan to the Tasmanian Forest Agreement, or TFA, within the next week.

2014-04-07 09:31 | By Andrew Simms, The Guardian, 2 April 2014 | Trusting that some vague notion of the market will come to save us is deeply misguided. That is partly why, perversely, the very industries that pose the greatest threat in terms of climate change would never rely on it. If the UN's estimate of $30bn a year sounds a lot to help protect tropical forests, it's worth remembering that an amount 63 times greater goes in subsidy alone to the fossil fuel sector globally. Already this year thick clouds of...

2014-04-07 09:11 | By John Roach, NBC News.com, 6 April 2014 | Te world's arid areas — deserts filled with scrubby vegetation and sand — are absorbing more of the carbon dioxide that's being emitted into the atmosphere than expected, a new study shows. While these ecosystems will not stop global warming, scientists said the finding provides a better understanding of the carbon cycle, and thus how the global climate will change in the future. "It is definitely not going to stop it ... just now we are understanding...

2014-04-07 09:10 | By Frank Jordans, AP, 5 April 2014 | After concluding that global warming almost certainly is man-made and poses a grave threat to humanity, the U.N.-sponsored expert panel on climate change is moving on to the next phase: what to do about it. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, will meet next week in Berlin to chart ways in which the world can curb the greenhouse gas emissions that scientists say are overheating the planet. It is also trying to give estimates on what it...

2014-04-07 09:09 | By Camilla Knudsen and Gwladys Fouche, Reuters, 7 April 2014 | Norway's $860 billion oil fund should scale up its investments in renewable energy and weigh the risk to future returns posed by climate change, the finance ministry said on Friday, a shift green groups said was insufficient. The switch is part of government reforms of the fund - the biggest of its kind in the world - that also include changes to its ethical guidelines and a review of its activities in emerging markets. It has...
