The 300 - 350 Show: An Emissions Budget for Climate Safety

21st May, 2009

In a recent Guardian newspaper poll, nine out of ten climate scientists said they did not believe political efforts to restrict average global warming to 20C would succeed. Despite this two new papers in the April issue of Nature show that it is possible to conceive of an emissions trajectory that would keep within 20C of global warming compared to pre-industrial times (the threshold defined by the EU between acceptable and dangerous climate change). Phil England speaks to one of the lead authors of the studies - Myles Allen of the Climate Dynamics team, University of Oxford - to draw out some of the implications for national and international policymakers. For more information. more...

Dan Box

29th April, 2009

I slept in my clothes last night, on the bare wooden floor of one of the houses the first boatload of people to be evacuated from the Carteret Islands are building for their families. It was a jet-black night in the small clearing hacked out amid the jungle, the dark broken only by our two candles and the lights of Fireflies jigging in the trees. more...

The future of energy is renewable

Jon Hughes and Mark Anslow

27th February, 2009

The recent U-turn by of some of the UK's leading environmentalists - and one-time nuclear energy opponents - on the issue of nuclear energy, has caused vigourous debate in the media. Their reasoning is that we simply don't have the capacity to produce enough renewable energy to meet our needs. But as this comprehensive Ecologist report from 2007 shows the UK is really a renewable energy powerhouse. more...

So, the Carteret Islands are sinking, but why should you care? It’s a question well worth trying to answer; after all, the islands are a long, long way away, you are unlikely to meet the people who are about to loose their homes and when they do, it won’t change your daily life. more...

Why most of the major powers really want global warming

David Lempert and Hue Nhu Nguyen
