The National Transport Commissionestimates that if Australian consumers purchased vehicles with best-in-class emissions, average carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for new light vehicles would be 60% lower. The average emissions intensity for new passenger vehicles sold in Australia is 45% higher than it is in Europe. This is largely due to: 1. the Australian preference for heavier vehicles with more powerful engines 2. Australia having a lower proportion of diesel-powered engines 3. Australia has fewer government incentives for lower emissions vehicles 4. relatively lower fuel prices in Australia compared with Europe In addition to the air pollution caused by conventional (combustion engine) vehicles, residual oil can pollute the land, waterways and oceans.

Why SF₆ emissions from the renewable energy sector should not

Increasing Sulfr hexafluorideGlobal Warming PotentialDecarbonisation FirstMeasurements show that SF₆ has been increasing in the atmosphere. While SF₆ emissions across Europe have more than halved since the mid-1990s, global emissions are increasing, mostly owing to increases in SF₆ emissions from the electrical industry, which are predicted to continue. Even so, it’s important to put the role of SF₆ as a greenhouse gas into context with other greenhouse gases. The most important sentence in the BBC’s article is this: Unfortunately, this critical point isn’t developed. The global concentration of atmospheric CO₂ today is about 410 parts per million, whereas the global concentration of SF₆ is only about 10 parts per trillion. In other words, there is 41 million times more CO₂ in the atmosphere than SF₆. But since SF₆ is 23,500 times stronger at trapping heat than CO₂, doesn’t this still mean it’s a bigger problem than CO₂ for the climate? CO₂ is actually a very weak greenhouse gas and is much less efficient at trapping heat compared to other greenhouse gase...
