Carbon trading has so far done little to either reduce carbon emissions or benefit countries in need of clean development and should be abandoned, argues Carbon Trading: How it works and why it fails? , a 2009 report by the Sweden-based Dag Hammarskjold Foundation, which focuses on human development issues. The report includes case studies on people affected by U.N. Clean Development Mechanism projects in Brazil, India, Indonesia and Thailand. DEVELOPMENT Climate change threatens to undermine development and push more people into poverty, says the World Development Report 2010: Development and Climate Change , a September 2009 ...
The northern desert contains great mineral wealth, principally copper. The relatively small central area dominates in terms of population and agricultural resources, and is the cultural and political center from which Chile expanded in the late 19th century, when it incorporated its northern and southern regions. Southern Chile is rich in forests and grazing lands and features a string of volcanoes and lakes. The southern coast is a labyrinth of fjords, inlets, canals, twisting peninsulas, and islands. 3 Prior to arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century, northern Chile was under Inca rule while the indigenous Araucanians ...
New York Times public editor files final report, never mentions ...
Hoyt was supposed to represent an objective, independent perspective that represents the public’s concerns — in order “to help this newspaper live up to its own high journalistic standards,” as he put it.  But he has nary a word to say about the one area where the NYT failed to live up to its standards more than any other. Future generations will certainly never remember what Hoyt calls his “ disagreement of greatest consequence [with exec editor Bill Keller] — over the Times article suggesting that John McCain had had an extramarital affair with a young female lobbyist.” But they will be ... market research, surveys and trends
How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love the Currency Collapse ...
The title is a reference to the culturally significant film, Dr. Strangelove, a satire on the fear of nuclear war that was so integral to the post war generation in the US. If one reads this carefully, the BIS is really referencing a devaluation of about 22% which is hardly ‘a collapse.’ Here are some examples of post WW II currency collapses. It depends on the timeframe, specifically the rate and extent with which the devaluation occurs. Also, it matters about what the devaluation has been against. Is it a relationship primarily to a reference point like the US dollar, largely affecting a narrow band of ... market research, surveys and trends

Australia, France, Japan, Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States have today collectively agreed in the context of an ambitious and comprehensive outcome in Copenhagen to dedicate USD3.5 billion as initial public finance towards slowing, halting and eventually reversing deforestation in developing countries. A joint statement follows: “Actions to reduce emissions from forests can help to stabilize our climate, support livelihoods, provide biodiversity conservation, and promote economic development.

Lindsey Graham and the failure of the 'lone Republican' theory
With Lindsey Graham bolting a bill he helped draft, efforts to address climate change in this Congress look likely to fail. And because the next Congress is likely to have more Republicans, and because the House's approval of Waxman-Markey will expire after the election and mean the House would have to write and pass a whole new bill, the situation looks grim going forward, too. This is, understandably, causing many enviros to wonder whether Graham was ever committed to the effort. Brad Plumer, who's as fair-minded and unexcitable on these questions as they come, calls Graham's stated objections ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Chris Huhne: Why I'm turned on by turning things off
A convert to the green cause 30 years ago, the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change explains why his new job is a dream come true.

How are penguins affected by climate change? - Yahoo! Answers
Seventeen species of penguin are distributed over the Southern Hemisphere, from the Antarctic to the Galapagos Islands. The general scientific consensus is that the polar regions are warming faster, and as you would expect, the more southern penguins populations tend to be most affected by climate change. The penguin populations experiencing climate change will be particularly affected if it decreases their food supply (krill, fish, squid). Emperor penguins (like those featured in March of the Penguins) live very close to the south pole, so I'd expect lots of literature on that species, but the one that keeps popping up ...
