A group of scientists from the US and Australia have found a way to cut carbon emissions without changing the energy mix, without destroying the ozone layer or the world’s ability to fight climate change.
The researchers analysed data from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center (CPPC) and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (ABM).
Their work is published in the journal Science Advances.
It found that the U and AAs research found that if you reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, you will see a significant decline in CO2 levels.
That means that the world will be able to breathe cleaner air, which means fewer deaths and higher quality of life.
It also found that reducing CO2 emissions through a range of policies, including carbon taxes and regulations, is a no-brainer, as they will bring about the biggest change in air quality since the Industrial Revolution, said lead author and former NASA climate scientist Dr Jonathan Rauch.
“The biggest change, and we think it’s because of climate change, is the air we breathe,” he said.
“It’s just that when you think about it, you think it could be the worst thing.”
If we had to change the way we breathe, we could have catastrophic effects.
“The scientists say they are the first to prove that the carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere is being reduced by reducing emissions, but there is still much more work to do.”
We’ve shown the potential of a carbon tax to reduce carbon emissions.
We’re still trying to get it through the Senate and we need more funding,” Dr Rauk said.
The research is a continuation of a recent study published by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM), which found that a carbon levy was the most effective method to reduce emissions from fossil fuels.
However, the authors said the new research is far from conclusive.”
This is the first study to demonstrate that CO2 reductions alone can lead to the CO2 emission reductions predicted in our model,” Dr Joanna Wootton, a professor at the University of Melbourne, and co-author of the NASEM study, said.
She said there are many other strategies for reducing emissions that are also effective, such as reducing demand for fossil fuels and investing in renewable energy, and reducing CO02 emissions from existing sources.”
There’s no doubt we need to continue to use the best technologies available to achieve the CO3 reduction targets in order to reduce CO2 pollution,” she said.
