    A worker checks solar panels on the roof of a building in the Hong Kong Electric Lamma island power plant July 29 ,2010. The solar panels in the plant can supply around 620,000 units of electricity to 150 families for one year, and offset around 520 tonnes of carbon dioxide emission. According to The Hong Kong Electric Company, the solar panels also make up the largest solar energy system in Hong Kong. REUTERS/Tyrone Siu (CHINA - Tags: ENERGY ENVIRONMENT BUSINESS)

    Policemen carry bags in front of the Deutsche Bank headquaters in Frankfurt, April 28, 2010. German prosecutors said on Wednesday they have searched more than 230 sites in a probe based on suspicions of tax evasions in the trading of European Union carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions rights certificates. A Deutsche Bank AG spokesman said that the bank had received a visit and was supporting the authorities. REUTERS/Johannes Eisele (GERMANYPOLITICS - Tags: BUSINESS CRIME LAW) POLITICS)

    Dogs are monitored after being herded into a metal container euphemistically called a "dream box," where stray dogs are asphyxiated with carbon dioxide gas, at an animal welfare centre in Tokushima, about 600 km (373 miles) southwest of Tokyo, March 11, 2010. It's a dog's life for a stray mutt in any country, but in Japan a canine that ends up in the municipal pound is far more likely to be put down than to find a new home. While in some other industrialised countries the idea of "saving" a pet from a shelter is well-established, in Japan animal welfare activists say strays often fall foul of an attitude that prizes puppies and pedigrees as status symbols.

China will reduce its carbon intensity -- the amount of carbon dioxide emitted for each unit of GDP -- 40 to 45 percent by 2020, compared with 2005 levels, the official Xinhua news agency reported.

    Kashmiri boats make the shape of 350 on the International Day of Climate Action in Dal Lake in Srinagar, October 24, 2009. The display is a part of the 350 global campaign, which calls for a reduction of atmospheric carbon dioxide to the safe threshold of 350 parts per million (ppm). Current levels stand at 387 ppm.

    Louis Blumberg, Nature Conservancy's director of the California Climate Change project, conducts a tour of the Garcia River Forest near Longvale, California July 27, 2009. The trees which trap quantities of the carbon dioxide that is warming the planet are sold as living carbon traps or "sinks" rather than cut for timber, a model that could go global. But the prospect of a worldwide market could also attract hustlers eager to make a quick buck without making a difference to the planet. Photo taken July 27, 2009.

China said on Thursday it was unfair for rich countries to buy its cheap goods and then condemn its greenhouse gas pollution, a day after one study suggested the nation was already the world's biggest carbon dioxide emitter.

    A wind turbine stands in front of piles of coal waiting to be loaded onto container ships at the Newcastle Kooragang Island coal loading dock, the largest coal dock in Australia, located 120 km (75 miles) north of Sydney, March 11, 2007. The pristine Southern Ocean, which swirls around the Antarctic and absorbs vast amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, is slowly losing a fight against industrial gases responsible for global warming, scientists say. The Southern Ocean's unique wind and storm conditions make it the world's greatest carbon "sink"; the earth's oceans absorb a third of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and the Southern Ocean absorbs a third of that. But the waters that surround Antarctica are becoming more acidic as they absorb increasing amounts of carbon dioxide produced by nations burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas.

    Industry Commissioner Guenter Verheugen (L) and Environment Commissioner Stavros Dimas hold a joint news conference on the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from new cars, in Brussels February 7, 2007. The European Commission laid out a broad new strategy to cut carbon dioxide emissions from cars on Wednesday, proposing binding limits which automakers say will threaten jobs and lead to big price increases for consumers.
