      Climate control in the boardrooms
      Financial Times, 4 February 2005 - Business leaders hold the key to tackling global climate change, top scientists acknowledged this week. Any attempts to stabilise the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere cannot succeed without business backing.

      Big investors turn up the heat on carbon
      Ethical Corporation, 2 February 2005 - 143 prominent institutional investors have demanded more information on the greenhouse gas emissions of 500 of the world's largest quoted corporations. United under the banner of the Carbon Disclosure Project, these investors have requested the emissions-related information to help them make sound investment decisions.

      Kyoto issue: Guilt-free sins of emission
      The Guardian, 3 February 2005 - In 15 years' time - and much sooner if the economy continues to explode - China will overtake the US as the world's largest single emitter of greenhouse gases. Now, this does not mean that by 2020 it will be a rich country with most people owning cars or using air conditioning like in the US or Europe. China plans by then to have only lifted its 1.4 billion people to the economic level of a semi-industrialised country such as Malaysia today. But just to get to that point, it will mean burning three times as much energy as now, say its leaders.

      Aircraft emissions to be debated under UK Presidency
      EurActiv.com, 2 February 2005 - Several options are being considered to reduce the growing global warming impact of aeroplanes. Proposals will be unveiled under the UK Presidency, after impact assessments are made on the economy, jobs and the environment.

      Taking on the Energy Crunch: How corporate America is working to develop alternatives to oil and gas--and lower its bills
      Fortune, 2 February 2005 - The U.S. economy runs on cheap, abundant fossil fuels--but that can't last. Even if supplies of oil, coal, and natural gas were unlimited, burning them in mass quantities generates greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change.

      Climate Change Hits Africa's Poor
      Press Association, 2 February 2005 - Human health and the ability to cope with illness will be threatened through the effects of global warming, experts will be told today.

      Deciding How Much Global Warming Is Too Much
      The New York Times, 1 February 2005 - Under the first treaty addressing global warming, 193 countries, including the United States, pledged to avoid ''dangerous'' human interference with the climate.

      Cashing in on carbon
      Africa Investor, 31 January 2005 - Industrialised nations are turning to the developing world in the race to cut their greenhouse gas emissions. James Knight discovers that Africa must work harder to capitalise on the global carbon rush.

      Climate: Low-carbing the atmosphere
      U.P.I., 31 January 2005 - Carbon sequestration has become the leading weapon in the U.S. government's arsenal against climate change.

      US emissions market points way on climate - WRI
      Environmental Finance, 28 January 2005 - A state-level trading scheme to tackle US nitrogen oxide (NOx) pollution could provide a blueprint for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in that country, according to a new report from the World Resources Institute.
