Climate mitigation is a term used to describe the efforts by governments and organisations to prevent, and reduce the risks from, climate change and its consequences by reducing emissions of greenhouse gases.
The Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC), which became effective in 1994, is a voluntary and nonbinding declaration of standards, goals, and objectives that represents international cooperation to reduce human-made greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.
Halos are CFC (other greenhouse gases halocarbon) used, for instance, in firefighting equipment.
Hydrocarbon is an organic chemical compound of hydrogen and carbon in gas, liquid, or solid phase. Hydrocarbons can vary from pure methane to massive, complex mixtures. Fossil fuels are made up of hydrocarbons. In-vehicle emissions, these are usually vapours created from incomplete combustion or vaporisation of liquid gasoline.
Emission is natural or human-caused processes release of material into the environment.
A carbon tax is a term used to describe a tax on greenhouse-gas emission. In reality, the carbon tax is an important instrument used to curb greenhouse-gas emissions.
