New phase of globalisation could undermine emissions reduction

2018

New research reveals the growth of carbon production from Chinese exports has slowed or reversed, reflecting a “new phase of globalisation” between developing countries that could undermine international efforts to reduce emissions.

Steering international shipping towards the Paris Agreement

2018

While international shipping is also a contributor to anthropogenic GHG emissions, and CO2 in particular, it is not included in the Paris Agreement. This article discusses how a share of a global CO2 budget over the twenty-first century could be apportioned to international shipping, and, using a range of future trade scenarios, explores the requisite cuts to the CO2 intensity of shipping.

PhD Studentship: Land Availability for Greenhouse Gas Removal by Afforestation and Biomass Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)

2018

To meet the aspirations of the UNFCCC Paris Climate Agreement to limit increases of global mean temperature to well below 2°C, future scenarios assume the large-scale use of afforestation and biomass energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere .In this directly-funded NERC PhD you will critically assess the land use and residue stream assumptions used in future scenarios.

Sea-levels will keep rising even with the Paris Agreement, latest findings show

2018

What will the world look like with 1.5°C of warming? That has been the focus of investigation in three recently published studies led by the University of Southampton. The Paris Agreement, aiming to hold global average temperatures to ‘well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C’ does not take into account the longevity of sea-level rise.
