The document outlines how companies could present such information and link it to the management commentaries that accompany the financial statements they publish. The CDSB's draft identifies four templates it proposes be used to determine what information relating to climate change should be included in the management report and how to make such disclosures useful to the decision makers that may read it. These templates and a number of the associated disclosure guides include: Strategic Analysis (and Corporate Governance) A statement on how management sees climate ...
e) and may represent six primary categories of greenhouse gases. One carbon offset represents the reduction of one metric ton of carbon dioxide or its equivalent in other greenhouse gases. There are two markets for carbon offsets. In the larger, compliance market, companies, governments, or other entities buy carbon offsets in order to comply with caps on the total amount of carbon dioxide they are allowed to emit. In 2006, about $5.5 billion of carbon offsets were purchased in the compliance market, representing about 1.6 billion metric tons of CO 2 e reductions.

After climategate: forward to reality | openDemocracy
A series of careful reports into the leaked emails of climate scientists provides a consistent account of the "climategate" saga. This allows a welcome refocus on the problems of climate change and the role of the IPCC, says Øyvind Paasche. The bitter controversies swirling around the research findings of and communication between climate scientists seem to have reached a kind of turning-point in mid-2010. After the drama (and even near-hysteria) of the so-called “climategate” affair surrounding the leaked emails of scientists from or connected with the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, a number ... market research, surveys and trends

In testimony before the Senate, Fed chair Ben Bernanke appeared to embrace a sort of reverse-Augustinian view of further measures to help the economy: It will remain chaste now, but reserves the right to intervene more aggressively later. That might be cold comfort to some: Watching the difficulty the Senate had passing an unemployment extension, the analysts at Goldman Sachs are now assuming there will be no further fiscal stimulus in the next year, and that "adds almost a full percentage point to the drag on growth from Q4 2010 to Q4 2011 to what we had already estimated."

What is the main cause of global warming? - Yahoo! Answers
CO2 is now presented as the most dangerous greenhouse gas in the Earth's atmosphere, the primary cause of GW. Some even call it a pollutant. I'd like to shed some light on this issue. CO2 makes a very small contribution to the Earth's temperature. It is only 0.039 % of the atmosphere. Nitrogen, oxygen, water vapor and argon comprise more than 99 % of the atmosphere. Furthermore, carbon dioxide is not a particularly effective greenhouse gas. Out of the wide spectrum of radiation received from the sun, CO2 only absorbs energy from three very narrow levels. Many people believe there is a difference ...
Can you explain global warming to me? - Yahoo! Answers
I'm very confused about global warming. People always tell me how urgently we need to respond to global warming and they make it seem like temperatures have been rising exponentially. So I decided to research global warming and decide for myself if this is the case ( I have just been taking people's word for it before this). I found out that the earth has warmed up 1.3 degrees over the past 100 years. THAT is what people are so concerned about? The temperature must have risen a lot more than that in order for the ice age to end! Also, I can't seem to find anything about temperatures before the 20th ...
