Aviation contributes 3.5% to the human-made drivers of climate change, a new study shows

Aviation accounts for 3.5% of the human-made climate impact. Two-thirds of this impact are caused by emissions other than CO2, a new study shows.

New study shows global temperature responds slowly to emissions cuts

Although large emissions cuts are urgently needed if we are to achieve the global climate goals, it may take decades before we can measure the effect of the reductions on global temperature evolution, a new study shows.

Global fossil CO2 emissions dropped by 17% amid coronavirus lockdowns

Daily global fossil CO2 emissions fell by 17% in early April 2020 compared to 2019 amid coronavirus lockdowns in most countries, with full-year 2020 emissions set to decrease by up to 7% depending on future social distancing.

4C – Climate-Carbon Interactions in the Current Century

The EU-funded project 4C (Climate-Carbon Interactions in the Current Century) aims to fill the knowledge gap surrounding climate sensitivity to carbon dioxide emissions by reducing the uncertainty in our quantitative understanding of carbon-climate interactions and feedbacks.

AVIATE: How can aviation contribute to a low-carbon society?

The AVIATE (Aviation in a low-carbon society) project will provide better understanding of the climate impact of aviation, both for Norway and globally, and explore options for reducing that impact.

ACACIA – Advancing the Science for Aviation and Climate

The EU-funded project ACACIA (Advancing the Science for Aviation and Climate) aims to provide improved scientific knowledge of the non-CO2 impacts from aviation emissions of relevance for the development of harmonised policies and regulations for a more climate-friendly aviation system.
