IPCC Due to Release Critical Report May 4th

On May 4th the UN sponsored consortium on scientists, The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change http://www.ipcc.ch/, will release it’s third report this year: The Mitigation of Climate Change. This report should serve as a road map for the World reverse the impact that we have on our environment.

The panel is poised to suggest fundamental changes in the way we do things. Some of the technological suggestions that will be expected are:

  • Higher conservation standards in housing and commercial buildings
  • Sweeping requirements for use of renewable resources in lieu of fossil fuels
  • Carbon Sequestration, in which smokestack carbon emissions are captured and then injected underground into capped rock seams.

These are not new ideas, but the council will be making specific suggestions on how to make these ideas reality. The May report will present proposals to tax or trade rights to carbon emissions among nations and industries. Such proposals have been the subject of great debate since they were originally introduced in the 1997 Kyoto UN Agreement. The US never ratified that agreement.

This could prove to be a starting point for real change in International modus operandi. Pollution could become a commodity. Corporations around the World could trade the right to emit carbon into the atmosphere.

This report will only continue the debate. Do we focus on renewable fuels or do we cut emissions?
