Asia most vulnerable to climate change

Asian Correspondent : opulations living in low-lying, coastal Asian cities are at most risk from the effects of climate change, according to a report titled “Climate Change 2014: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability,” presented last March at the climate talks in Yokohama Japan.


Cameroon study shows mitigation and adaptation go together : Add a new study in Cameroon to the list. In a paper published earlier this year, researchers in the Central African country showed that efforts to mitigate global warming by curbing deforestation can no longer be conducted separately from measures to help people adapt to a degree of inevitable climate change.


Poland to veto EU climate change deal? : Poland is leading opposition to an upcoming EU energy climate change deal, and may scupper the entire plan if it does not receive guarantees about future energy costs.

Fracking Makes Climate Change Worse, Not Better

Discovery Channel : The idea of cutting harmful Earth-warming gases by switching from coal and oil to cleaner-burning natural gas seemed like a no-brainer. Natural gas produces less than half the amount of carbon dioxide, the prime greenhouse gas. And there’s plenty of it, thanks to new technologies such as hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”), horizontal drilling and seismic imaging.
