2014-11-23 22:21 | By Allison Silverman, CIEL Worldview, 22 November 2014 | It is hard to believe that a year has passed since we formed the Tri-Caucus to improve coordination between those who focus specifically on rights related to REDD+. As we finalize last-minute logistics for the upcoming UN climate negotiations – the Conference of the Parties (COP 20) in Lima, Peru – I wanted to reflect upon what we have accomplished as a loose collaboration of indigenous peoples, local communities and civil society...

2014-11-23 22:06 | By Gloria Gonzalez, Forest Carbon Portal, 17 November 2014 | California regulators shook the North American carbon markets to their core with their plans to invoke the invalidation provisions featured in the state’s carbon offset program for the first time. While the affected producers of ozone-depleting substances (ODS) offsets and their allies loudly lobbied the regulators to change their minds, developers of forest and livestock carbon offsets quietly mulled what the decision means for them...

2014-11-23 21:58 | By Sophie Yeo, RTCC, 19 November 2014 | Buckingham Palace has signed up to a carbon-cutting club – the latest sign that the UK’s queen thinks green. The Royal Household, which also takes care of St James’s Palace, Kensington Palace and Windsor Castle, has joined a network of organisations which swap practical tools and techniques to lower their carbon footprint. It emerged earlier this month that the queen is privately concerned about climate change, after she pondered to Met Office chief...

2014-11-23 21:55 | By Marcelo Teixeira, Reuters, 19 November 2014 | Brazil's annual greenhouse gas emissions increased last year for the first time since 2004 after years of reductions as deforestation and the use of thermal power plants rose, a new study found. Latin America's largest economy generated 1.56 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) in 2013, a 7.8 percent jump over the previous year, according to a report released Wednesday by the Climate Observatory, a network of civil society...

2014-11-23 21:44 | By Ed Davey, The Guardian, 20 November 2014 | Climate change is at last heading up the international agenda. With the climate science evidence now so overwhelming even some of the sceptics have been forced to change tack. There is no time to lose. That’s why today’s announcement that the UK is to pledge up to £720 million into the Green Climate Fund to help the world’s poorest countries tackle climate change is so important. The context for this major British funding pledge is the all-important...

2014-11-23 21:43 | By Frank Jordans, AP, 20 November 2014 | A U.N. fund that will help poor countries tackle climate change has fallen short, for now, of its target of collecting $10 billion, officials said Thursday. About 30 countries meeting in Berlin pledged a total of $9.3 billion toward the Green Climate Fund, according to Germany's development ministry, which co-hosted the conference. Last week, the U.S. pledged $3 billion, the biggest amount so far. Britain announced Thursday it would give 720 million...

2014-11-23 21:42 | AP, 20 November 2014 | Seven Harvard University students have filed a lawsuit asking a judge to force the university's governing body to divest from fossil fuel companies. The lawsuit filed Wednesday alleges investment in those companies violates the university's duties as a public charity. The complaint asks the court to compel the Harvard Corporation, the governing body, to stop investing any of its $36.4 billion endowment in gas, coal and oil companies. Harvard students have pressed the...

2014-11-23 21:41 | By Madeline Chambers, Reuters, 20 November 2014 | Donor nations pledged a total $9.3 billion on Thursday to a U.N. fund to help developing countries tackle climate change, but environmental campaigners said the funds fell short of what is needed. The U.N. Green Climate Fund (GCF) is a major part of a plan agreed in 2009 whereby rich countries agreed to mobilise $100 billion a year from both public and private sources from 2020 to help developing nations adapt to a changing global climate and...

2014-11-23 21:39 | By Derek Walker, EDF, 21 November 2014 | A handful of states are already proving that economic growth and environmental protection can go hand in hand – and they’re using market forces, price signals and economic incentives to meet their goals. These results are particularly salient as states consider how to comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s plan to limit dangerous pollution from power plants. So let's take a closer look at what's happening on our two coasts... California’s...

2014-11-23 20:57 | By Brian Fallow, New Zealand Herald, 21 November 2014 | The Government faces two big decisions next year affecting the cost and effectiveness of climate policy over the next 15 years. It has to decide what commitment to make in the negotiations on an agreement to govern global action on climate change through the 2020s. And it has to decide what steps it is prepared to take to render the emissions trading scheme fit for purpose. At this point we can be confident of two things: the Government...
