Since the Paris agreement was adopted, climate analysts have argued that the initial commitments made by more than 185 countries were insufficient to reach the agreement’s goals in fighting climate change.
Scientists tell us we must act now to avoid the ravages of climate change. If we fail, future generations will judge us all as failures, not just this president.
There are four extraordinary circumstances, all relating to California’s oil resources, that need to be factored into the case for preserving and strengthening California’s clean car program.
Calls for tighter limits on greenhouse gas emissions have put petroleum companies in the driver’s seat. It’s time for them to develop transparent systems based on standardized, verifiable climate plans.
You have to go to the source of the problem to solve a challenge as vast as the health of the world’s oceans. But government can’t do it alone.
Destructive and illegal fishing practices are resulting in more and bigger boats fishing for fewer and smaller fish.
Join Carnegie President William J. Burns for a conversation with Visiting Distinguished Statesman John Kerry about his new memoir.
The idea that climate engineering provides a get-out-of-jail-free card is fraught with risk. More transparency is needed to help ensure it successfully addresses climate change
A successful switch to electric vehicles, coupled with strategically increased refining capacity, could be both a geoeconomic and geopolitical maneuver for India.
It is critical to assess how shifting to a low-carbon economy will impact oil refining—piecemeal or isolated policy efforts could lead to unintended consequences.
The Carnegie Energy and Climate Program engages global experts working on issues relating to energy technology, environmental science, and political economy to develop practical solutions for policymakers around the world. The program aims to provide the leadership and the policy framework necessary to minimize the risks that stem from global climate change and competition for resources.
The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace has created a new leadership initiative to develop a non-partisan solution financing a better transportation system in the United States. Former U.S. Senator Bill Bradley, former Pennsylvania Governor and Secretary for Homeland Security Tom Ridge, and former U.S. Comptroller General and now founder and CEO of the Comeback America Initiative David Walker, will lead an intensive analysis to find politically realistic measures to fix what is now a broken transportation system.
The agency provides information on solar activity, sea level rise, the temperature of the atmosphere and the oceans, the state of the ozone layer, air pollution, and changes in sea ice and land ice. How much warmer will the planet get? How will sea level rise progress? What will happen to soil moisture, and therefore agricultural production, in a warmer world? NASA scientists and engineers will help answer these and other critical questions in the future.
