Estimating the emissions
from steam or chilled water delivered to buildings can be difficult because the generating plants often provide no operational information.
from energy sector has the biggest share in total CO2 emissions
For example, the 2006 Hydro Quebec study Greenhouse Gas Emissions
from Transportation Options found that transport tailpipe emissions
account for 31 percent of total Canadian GHG emissions
but more than 50 percent of lifecycle emissions
Quality data on emissions
are essential to the development and implementation of a system intended to limit greenhouse gas emissions
Since putting a price on GHG emissions
necessarily imposes different costs on people in different circumstances, there is an argument for starting at a modest level and indicating that the price will escalate over time to the higher level required to achieve emission
Noncompulsory policies, such as information provision (labels, advertisements) and modest subsidies, do not increase the cost of emitting greenhouse gases and therefore fail to cause substantial emissions
The shipping industry is exempt from many international environmental regulations and protocols, but critics are now clamoring for more stringent standards and oversight of the industry's carbon emissions
According to the EEA(1), the 0.8% drop in EU15 emissions
between 2005 and 2006, which contrasts sharply with an increase in GDP of 2.8% during the same period, proves that the EU has succeeded in further decoupling emissions
from economic growth.
The domestic chemical industry continues to make progress in reducing environmental emissions--other than carbon dioxide--according to the Canada's Chemical Producers' Association (CCPA)'s recent 2005 Reducing Emissions
The biggest development challenge in meeting emissions
EC set to include airlines in existing emissions
According to Yale University's Climate Initiative (YCI), this Ivy League school in New Haven, Connecticut produced greenhouse gas emissions
of 285,000 metric tons in 2002, more than 32 developing nations.
