Record de CO2. "I vosaltres no en dieu res, xaval!"

Aprofitant l'acte de presentació del document Declaració de Barcelona, aquest migdia al saló de Cent de l'Ajuntament de Barcelona, demano disculpes a Pep Canadell per no haver pogut publicar res, la setmana passada, sobre l'estudi que ell dirigeix sobre concentració de gasos d'efecte hivernacle. Canadell em contesta: "És veritat, van publicar els nostres resultats a diaris de tot el món i aquí [España], va sortir al Diari de Cádiz i poca cosa més, i vosaltres no dieu res, xaval!!!". Pep Canadell és un reconegut científic que treballa ara a Austràlia en un centre que va rebre l'encàrrec de l'IPCC de fer el seguiment de les concentracions de gasos d'efecte hivernacle.

EUREKALERT. Growth in the global carbon budget. Updated global carbon budget released. 25 set 2008

Today the new Global Carbon Budget was launched simultaneously by Global Carbon Project co-chair Michael Raupach in France at the Paris Observatory, and in the USA at Capitol Hill, Washington by GCP Executive Director Pep Canadell. The Global Carbon Project posted the most recent figures for the worlds' carbon budget, a key to understanding the balance of carbon added to the atmosphere, the underpinning of human induced climate change. Despite the increasing international sense of urgency, the growth rate of emissions continued to speed up, bringing the atmospheric CO2 concentration to 383 parts per million (ppm) in 2007. (...)

CSIRO. Emissions rising faster this decade than last. 25 set 2008

The latest figures on the global carbon budget to be released in Washington and Paris today indicate a four-fold increase in growth rate of human-generated carbon dioxide emissions since 2000. "This is a concerning trend in light of global efforts to curb emissions," says Global Carbon Project (GCP) Executive-Director, Dr Pep Canadell, a carbon specialist based at CSIRO in Canberra. Releasing the 2007 data, Dr Canadell said emissions from the combustion of fossil fuel and land use change almost reached the mark of 10 billion tonnes of carbon in 2007. (...)
