G8 leaders agree on temperature rise limit, but the necessary policies are still lacking

At the G8 summit in July, America and the other seven richest economies agreed to work towards the common goal of preventing the world's average temperature from rising more than 2C by collectively cutting their emissions by 80% by 2050.

Gas turbines: a bust as big as the boom

Gazprom/Petro-Canada: Baltic terminal project hints at global LNG potential

Russian gas giant Gazprom and Canadian major Petro-Canada are to proceed with construction of an LNG terminal on the Baltic Sea.
