Today (Monday, November 11, 2013) negotiators from more than 190 countries are in Warsaw, Poland for the 19th Conference of the Parties (C0P19) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), aware of multiple warnings from the scientific community that the planet’s climate system is on the brink.
The 25th Meeting of Parties to the Montreal Protocol opened in Bangkok, Thailand today (October 21, 2013), offering an historic opportunity to tackle climate change and prevent the release into the atmosphere of more than 100 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent (CO2e) by the middle of the century through a global phase-down of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs)
At the quarterly meeting of EU Climate and Environment Ministers in Brussels, climate champion Denmark rallied support from a further five EU Member States to renounce the use of HFC-23 carbon offsets towards national emissions targets
As the European Parliament’s ENVI Committee votes on possible changes to the EU’s F-Gas Regulation, we urge action to ensure hydrofluorocarbons – widely used in refrigeration and air conditioning – are banned in new equipment and products by 2020 despite chemical industry lobbying to maintain the status quo

Fluorinated greenhouse gases, or F-gases, are just about everywhere in contemporary life, from industrial and supermarket refrigeration to foams, air-conditioning systems and water coolers. Among them are HFCs, a family of potent greenhouse gases hundreds to thousands of times more powerful than carbon dioxide
