Климатические действия

8 октября вышел специальный доклад МГЭИК по проблеме удержания глобального потепления в рамках 1,5 градусов по Цельсию. Доклад демонстрирует огромную разницу в ущербе от изменений климата для крупнейших развитых и развивающихся стран и для слабых и наиболее уязвимых стран. Доклад показывает, что именно снижение выбросов парниковых газов – это единственный путь избежать худшего развития событий.

Russia’s positions in the international rating of energy efficiency of the major world states composed by the American Council for Energy-Efficient Economy (АСЕЕЕ) dropped down. At that, both experts and public environmental activists are sure that energy efficiency might become the core element of modernization and decarbonization of the country’s economy.

“Outcomes of the two decades of reforms in the Russian power sector disappointed those who stand for liberalization and decarbonization,” authors of the Report published by the Oxford Energy Institute wrote.

6-7 сентября в Москве прошел Второй международный климатический форум, посвященный проблемам, с которыми сталкиваются современные города в условиях меняющегося глобального климата. Климатический секретариат РСоЭС представил на форуме идею создания климатических планов разных уровней для продвижения повсеместных климатических действий, а также свой опыт в этой области.

The President of Russia signed a law that abolishes mandatory energy audits, but at the same time obliges organizations to reduce the use of energy resources. In the opinion of the environmental community, reserves for the improvement of energy efficiency of buildings and organizations’ energy efficient management are enormous and have not been realized yet.

The report of the International Expert Group on the climate change regarding the temperature increase on the planet had made a lot of noise yet before it has been publicized. Civil society activists believe that the actual figures of two or one point five degrees are less important than recognition of the urgency of specific universal actions on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

According to the forecast of the International Energy Association (IEA), the world annual biofuel production will reach 150 million tons of oil energy equivalent by 2030. Proponents of bioenergy argue that there is no better alternative to oil. Representatives of civil society and experts warn against certain negative consequences of obtaining and using biofuel.

On the 26th of May, the Round table “Best municipal practices of climate adaptation and role of civil society organizations” within the Forum became the platform to discuss the best practices of climate adaptation in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Helsinki, view of Ministry of Nature Use to international climate cooperation, approaches of Russian and British scientists to assess the climate change consequences and adaptation challenge, priorities of Coalition for protection of climate and clean air at UNEP, and experience of Russian Social-Ecological Union (RSEU) in supporting of local climate actions.

The RF Government has adopted a Complex Plan for the enhancement of energy efficiency of the national economy. A whole list of events focused on the reduction of energy intensity of the gross domestic product until 2030 for “no less than 1.5%” annually, and also on provision of the decrease of technological backwardness of the Russian Federation from the leading countries” has been developed. How realistic is that sort of reboot?
