Population growth is moving in a climate-friendly direction

Higher living standards have led to a slow-down in global population growth. This is good news for the climate because it will lead to lower growth in carbon emissions, say scientists at CICERO Center for International Climate Research.

Global CO2 emissions rise again in 2018, according to latest data

Global CO2 emissions are on track to rise more than 2% in 2018 on the back of renewed growth in coal use, and continued growth in oil and gas use, according to data released on 5 December. 

Stylised pathways to “well below 2°C”

COMMENTARY: Some people love negative emissions, others hate them. Some people think 1.5°C is impossible, others think it is a matter of political will. I think stylised figures are a great way to explain the challenges.

Climate change collaboration shows path to innovative methane emissions policy

The research collaboration proposes a new approach to climate change policy that would address the effects of these different emissions. This would be particularly relevant to one of New Zealand’s biggest industries: agriculture.

Global collective effort

We have a big challenge ahead of us if we are to hold global warming to under 2°C. This is largely because we have already used up most of our collective 'carbon budget'.

Rapid Response for Energy and Climate Policy Analysis

The world today is moving fast and so are user needs. Research projects can take years to develop and get funded, but many research questions in climate policy are relevant on short time scales. We believe there is an opportunity to fill a research niche answering contemporary policy challenges through synthesis of current knowledge and through fusion of existing data and methods.

Global Carbon Project

The Global Carbon Project was formed in 2001 to help the international science community to establish a common, mutually agreed knowledge base that supports policy debate and action to slow the rate of increase of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
