KLIMA FOR ENDRING 2009

Et informasjons- og debatthefte fra Norges Naturvernforbund og Unio om klimaendringene.  Klimaendringene er farlige, urettferdige og allerede i gang. Menneskeskapte utslipp av klimagasser påvirker jordas klima, og gir en global temperaturstigning som er raskere enn naturlig. Dette har dramatiske konsekvenser, og kan true livsgrunnlag og økosystemer over hele verden.

CLIMATE CHANGE - PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS 2009

A large number of serious ecological problems of world scale are connected with the production and use of energy. The idea of the SPARE program is to go from a discussion of global problems to practical actions of schoolchildren, to receive an answer to the question: How can we satisfy our need for energy (heating, light, transport) without dangerous and devastating consequences for nature?

Med denne utstillingen vil vi vise deg hvordan du kan hjelpe isbjørnen med å bevare sjøisen, ved å lære av isbjørnens beste egenskap.

 

SEEN FROM THE SOUTH: A REVIEW OF NORWEGIAN CLIMATE POLICY 12/08

The aim of this report is to help us see the Norwegian climate policy in a global perspective. The rich, industrialised countries historically are responsible for the major share of the green house gas emissions causing climate change, but today’s poor countries will face the most serious impacts. The unjust nature of climate change must be reflected and compensated for in international climate change agreements and in the policies of rich countries. How is this reflected in Norwegian climate policy?

 

TRANSFER OF CLIMATE-FRIENDLY TECHNOLOGIES 06/08

The improvement of living conditions for the poor in developing countries can be combined with combating climate change. The transfer of technology can help to reduce emissions from energy use. This report is focusing on simple, decentralised technologies that cover the basic needs for cooking, lightning and electric appliances. Non-governmental organisations have an important role in the transfer of this type of energy technology.

 

CONCEPT OF A DECOMMISSIONING PLAN FOR OLD RUSSIAN NUCLEAR REACTORS 2008

Our dear Russian colleague, Lydia Popova, has recently passed away. Lydia has been our colleague for more than 10 years, doing invaluable work on a number of subjects connected with nuclear safety issues and other energy related issues. Our latest cooperative effort was a report about a NGO concept of a Russian decommissioning plan for the oldest nuclear power reactors. Lydia contributed very valuable knowledge to this report, chiefly regarding how to make a legislative framework for the handling of the nuclear waste generated by breaking up old nuclear reactors. Lydia Popova will be deeply missed by colleagues in Norges Naturvernforbund.
