This Climate Action Tracker update shows that current emissions and policies - and future emission trends - are likely to lead to higher 21st century emission levels than previously projected. This, in turn, implies a higher level of warming by 2100.

Montreal Protocol, the multilateral treaty to protect the ozone layer, has been a successful environmental agreement. But an impasse over restricting the use of extremely potent greenhouse gases marred the Protocol’s 25th anniversary celebrations on September 16, 2012.

A report to the 18th session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) are man-made fluorinated gases (F-gases) developed and commercialised to replace CFCs, HCFCs and other chemicals that deplete the ozone layer.

Atmospheric volumes of greenhouse gases blamed for climate change hit a new record in 2011, the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) said in its annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin on Tuesday.

The amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached a new record high in 2011, according to the World Meteorological Organization. Between 1990 and 2011 there was a 30% increase in radiative forcing – the warming effect on our climate – because of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other heat-trapping long-lived gases.

F-gases, used in refrigeration and linked with high levels of global warming, need to be cut substantially by 2030, Europe's climate boss said on Tuesday.

This report provides a summary of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs), including: an introduction to SLCPs; explanation of the co-benefits of reducing SLCPs with respect to climate, human health and food security; and a menu of mitigation options for reducing SLCPs, including international and regional initiatives, such as the Climate and Cle

A report to the 24th Meeting of Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, celebrating past achievements and looking ahead to future challenges.

KOLKATA, 18 SEPT: In observation of International Ozone Day, the West Bengal Pollution Control Board (WBPCB) held a conference with environmental scientists and industry representatives to discuss

The hole in the ozone layer, the earth's protective shield against ultraviolet rays, is expected to be smaller this year over the Antarctic than last, showing how a ban on harmful substances has st
