“Low Emission Future” selected as Top Paper in ES&T
The publication of Glen Peters (Norwegian University of Science and Technology) and coauthors in the journal, Environmental Science and Technology (ES&T) has been identified as the top paper of the journal in 2007.
In their study (G. Peters et al., Environ. Sci. Tech., 2007, 41 (17), 5939–5944) they find that the Chinese have taken steps to improve their energy efficiency and still travel mainly on bicycles, a sustainable, zero-emissions mode of transport.
“Key to this paper was a desire to provide insight into how other developing countries can develop a low-emissions future, the authors note. China is engaged in a high-speed industrial revolution, but the country has a clear opportunity to invest in a less-carbon intensive economy.”
