Grønt Nationalregnskab for Danmark 2014-15 (Danmarks Statistik, februar 2017)

Udledningen af drivhusgasser falder

Det samlede udslip af drivhusgasser fra de danske økonomiske aktiviteter faldt i 2015 med 4,8 pct. og drivhusgasintensiteten (udslip pr. kr. BNP) faldt med 6,3 pct. Tallene for 2014 viser, at nedgangen i både de absolutte udslip og i drivhusgasintensiteten var større, hvis udslippene knyttet til forbruget af brændstof, der er bunkret mv. i udlandet, ikke medregnes.More

Climate change: All answers in the world gathered in 1 big web of knowledge! Splendid overview of everything! (January 2017)

Information about climate change has increased exponentially over the past years, yet this has not helped to solve the global warming crisis. In fact, too much information may actually be impeding progress.

The comprehensive resource called the Climate Web is trying to resolve this issue by turning mountains of information into “actionable knowledge.”More

UNEP on the world’s carbon emission reductions: “It’s just too little, and it’s not happening quickly enough” (November 2016)

“It’s just too little, and it’s not happening quickly enough,” said Jacqueline McGlade, UNEP’s chief scientist. “If we don’t see emissions peaking by 2020, then the chances of getting to 1.5 degrees is vanishingly small.”

UNEP’s latest report on the world’s carbon status and progress towards the goals is perhaps the definitive study of how much the world is currently emitting, and how much it can emit to remain on course to meet its goals.More

Bloomberg: By 2040 zero-emission energy will be 60% of world’s energy capacity. Report June 2016

According to predictions by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, renewable energy projects will represent two-thirds of all energy investments between the years 2016 and 2040.

Cheaper coal and cheaper gas will not derail the transformation and decarbonisation of the world’s power systems. By 2040, zero-emission energy sources will make up 60% of installed capacity. Wind and solar will account for 64% of the 8.6TW of new power generating capacity added worldwide over the next 25 years, and for almost 60% of the $11.4 trillion invested.More
