Greenhouse gases warm the surface of the planet naturally by trapping solar heat in the atmosphere. This is a good thing because it keeps our planet habitable. However, through deforestation and burning of fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil, we have dramatically increased the amount of Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere resulting in temperature rising. Norges Naturvernforbund sees a world-wide need for increased understanding of the processes and consequences regarding energy production and consumption. We believe improved basic knowledge about energy and the environment is crucial for long term solutions regarding global climate change.

    Russian NGOs comment and criticize strategic tasks for Russia set in the President’s article on September 10

    29.09.2009

    On September 10, the Russian President Dmitry Medvedev published an article about national strategic tasks. In it, among five strategic vectors of economic modernization, he named securing the leading role of Russia in efficiency of energy production, transportation and consumption, development and putting to the international market new types of fuel, and development of nuclear technologies. Russian NGOs are sure that Russia must abandon nuclear energy and set a goal to reduce risks of negative impact of technogenic climate change as a priority. Now Russian policy shows no practical steps towards efficient low-carbon energy sector.
