Sample text

As experimental stimulus, I used a short film produced out of a selection of IPCC material. The film was designed to make the content relevant and interesting to participants in an attempt to promote readiness to take measures against climate change.

The reductions occurred in the following sectors: waste, agriculture and in the housing and service sector’s production of energy. 3 million tonnes in 2002, a small increase from 1990 (SEPA, 2004). The strongest increase during the 1990s comes from the transport sector, whose share of total GHG emissions reached 30 per cent in 2002. 65 billion kilometres in 1999 to nearly 6 billion kilometres in 2002 (SIKA, 2003).
