A new WWF report shows how immediate mitigation measures can be taken in the next 5 years to significantly reduce carbon emissions.  Released in February ahead of a climate summit in Switzerland, the report, Crossing the Divide:  How to close the Emissions Abyss identifies actions that can be taken in 10 key countries that can help ensure emissions peak within the pre-2020 period as concluded by the latest report by the Intergovernmental panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to avoid the worst consequences of climate change.  Actions include scrapping coal-fired power stations, increasing renewables, improving energy efficiency, strengthening emissions targets and addressing deforestation.
