New technology is not enough in the battle against climate change – Daily


In the report turns namely the following fast:

CO2 emissions from the transport sector may increase by 60 per cent to 2050, despite the significant teknologiframgangen which is believed to come.

Without further measures can be CO2-emissions from the global shipping to increase by 160 per cent, as a result of a threefold increase in the fraktvolumene.

CO2 emissions from international aviation will be able to grow by 56 per cent in the period 2015-2030, even with vastly improved fuel efficiency.

50 countries

Assessment of developments in over 50 countries, including major utslippsland as China and the united STATES, but also Norway and the other nordic countries, is made by the ITF.

the ITF is synonymous with The international transportforum, which is administratively integrated with the OECD, but at the same time politically independent of this organization.

sets out the Conclusions of ITFs report for 2017, is quite different than forhåpningene as the former have emerged from various quarters, including from Torbjørn Lothe, managing director of the confederation of Norwegian enterprise Aviation.

– I think the airline industry is going to readjust itself to become more environmentally friendly, including by the use of biofuels. It is quite possible, ” said Lothe to Dagsavisen in December.

Previously Lothe also said to Dagsavisen:

– I think the airline industry will be able to be a very sustainable transportform.

Also several representatives of the government have spoken strongly believe that new technology is well on its way to be able to solve the challenges of climate change in the sector.

– It’s going to be emissions-free vehicles in future to drive on the roads we are building, said transport minister Ketil Solvik-Olsen (Frp) to Dagsavisen in December 2015.

– Cleaner technology has a huge potential and will be the most important measure before the bans and restrictions, said the secretary of state Reynir Johannesson (Frp) in the Ministry of transport and communications to the Daily newspaper in July last year.

– Wide range of measures

For that it should be possible to keep emissions from the transport sector even in 2015-the level, it must be implemented “a wide range of policies and measures”, also in the cities, it is pointed out in the new report from the ITF.

“Technological progress alone will not lead to reduced CO2 emissions in the cities. Aferdsendrende political measures such as fuel surcharges, low prices or land-use that restricts urban sprawl, is required to achieve the necessary additional CO2-reduction”, pointed out among other things.

“the Lower the CO2-emissions from urban traffic can also be achieved as a positive side effects of policies aimed at local air pollution and køtrafikk, which is the most urgent transportutfordringene in many cities”, called further in the report.

Community in Oslo, has long been demanding the ability to use instruments in line with this, but the government and samferdselsministeren has only in small degree responded to these requests.
