ABSTRACT
The article reports on the national carbon accounting system that the British Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is considering for emissions management. The UK Carbon Account (UKCA) is responsible for categorizing, supervising and trading emissions and allowances stipulated in the Climate Change Act. The principle will adjust discharges due to land use, land use change and forestry aside from fossil fuel. The British government will finance the project expected to be approved by March 2009.

    Stabilization of atmospheric CO2 concentrations below a pre-industrial doubling (~550 ppm) is a commonly cited target in climate policy assessment. When the rate at which future emissions can fall is assumed to be fixed, the peak atmospheric concentration - or the stabilization "frontier" - is...

    We analysed interannual and decadal changes in the atmospheric CO2 concentration gradient (ΔCO2) between Europe and the Atlantic Ocean over the period 1995–2007. Fourteen measurement stations are used, with Mace-Head being used to define background conditions. The variability of...

ELLIOTT; KEELING, RALPH F. // Tellus: Series B;Jul2009, Vol. 61 Issue 3, p536 

    Measurements of in atmospheric CO2 are an effective method of separating CO2 additions from fossil fuel and biospheric sources or sinks of CO2. We illustrate this technique with vertical profiles of CO2 and analysed in whole air flask samples collected above Colorado, USA in May and July 2004....

    As it becomes clear that global warming is a reality, states are increasingly taking measures to regulate the emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2). These efforts come largely in response to the federal government's failure to regulate CO2 emissions. Perhaps the most...

The delay allows EPA to conduct a lengthened and open public process to...
