减少温室气体:一项正在进行的工作

Much painstaking work has been initiated to limit fossil-fuel burning so as to reduce the concentration of atmospheric greenhouse gases and therefore prevent any further related fallout.A complete moratorium on the burning of fossil fuels is the ideal.

Being that this is not likely to happen anytime soon,它是,然而,important to keep tabs on the progress with regard to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions-reduction activities.

一个被称为“下10个”的问题就是这样做的。

In its"Decade of data charts global greenhouse gas emissions and economic trends in advance of Global Climate Action Summit""新闻稿,the California-based think tank references the加州绿色创新指数.

关于本报告,接下来的10篇文章写道:The索引compares state and environmental indicators with the U.S.世界其他地方,发现在加州通过第一部气候法的十年里,排放量下降了11%。even as its economy grew by almost 16 percent during one of the longest economic expansions in the state's history.The European Union (EU-28) was the only major economy to cut emissions more than California,but its real economic output grew by only 8.8 percent.""

Clean-energy vwin手机版development is a bright spot.Next 10 emphasized that"[o]ne clear positive trend in climate action has been the global boom in clean energy generation and innovation,"并进一步增加“[r]enewable energy increased 339 percent globally between 2005 and 2015,led by a massive increase in solar electricity generation as technologies improved and equipment costs fell.全世界,太阳能发电量增加6,2005年至2015年期间为327%【SIC】。全球风力发电增长了701%。"

Leading the way in generation from renewable-energy sources,根据下一个10,是EU-28。Blazing the same trail but to lesser degrees are"美国,中国德国和日本。Looking at carbon intensity – a measure of greenhouse gas emissions relative to GDP [Gross Domestic Product] – France is the world's least carbon-intensive economy,followed by Argentina,California,英国and Nigeria,respectively.""

California,though not a country,is recognized as having the fifth-largest economy in the world and,根据下一个10,ranks number 18 in terms of GHG-emissions output.

"‘Over the course of a decade,全面的,consistent policy in California created market certainty.That drove investment and advanced technology.加州仅次于中国和美国,排在第三位。作为一个吸引清洁技术投资的整体,亚当·福勒说,director of research at Beacon Economics,独立的研究和咨询公司索引for Next 10.""

这一观点在接下来的10位创始人和商人F.诺埃尔·佩里说:“… California is a world leader in innovation and climate policy,which has resulted in strong economic growth and emissions reductions.""

用这样鼓舞人心的话,虽然,有个警告:“… [T]ransportation emissions in California continue to rise at a time when the federal government is attempting to curtail our ability to control those emissions,"佩里在释放中有进一步的关联。

与此同时,globally,中国是温室气体排放量最大的国家,to lesser degrees,America (all 50 states),欧盟,Russia and India,接下来的10个问题是提交的版本。

更重要的是,the organization goes on in the press statement to relate:"The tenth annual加州绿色创新指数十年来结果参差不齐。全球排放量增长了15%,led by growing emissions from fast-growing economies like China and India.""

Though there is a lot to be encouraged by and get excited about here,clearly,许多空气/废气净化工作就在前面。

2 thoughts on"Greenhouse-gases reduction: A work in progress""

  1. 哇——拍拍自己的背真是太重了!Over the same period of time California was reducing emissions,他们还将制造业推向全球其他乐于燃烧煤炭的地方,排放控制更为有限(更不用说产生其他废物)。Object is supposed to be to help the globe,不仅仅是本地区

    The 1st rule of pollution control is to not remove one kind of pollution by creating another (ex: scrubbers that turn air pollution into water pollution isn't helpful)

  2. 在这场讨论中,有一件事是大衰退(2007-09年)对碳排放量的显著影响。

    If you checked CA power generation numbers you'd see overall usage in GWhrs has been pretty stable over the last couple of decades with exception of the Great Recession.在过去的十年里,风能和太阳能发电量大幅增长,太阳能发电量占加州总发电量的0%到7%。Increases in solar and wind electric generation appear to have offset reductions in the Hydro category during the last drought (2011-17)

    As far as loosing manufacturing jobs,自2000年以来,加州似乎没有比其他州(如宾夕法尼亚州)失去更多的制造业就业机会。
