Renewable energy could account for almost 80% of the world's energy supply within four decades – but only if governments pursue the policies needed to promote green power, according to a landmark report published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. (Environmental Research Web)

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had made available for public comment on EPA's "Biofuels and the Environment: The First Triennial Report to Congress."

EPA provides additional research in the area of Air, Climate and Energy. Check out the EPA website on other issues about sustainability.

Extended schools hold the key to tackling social problems - Research for the book showed that early intervention in just one child‟s life could save thousands of pounds in terms of future benefits, early pregnancies, mental health interventions etc. One of the most cost-effective ways of achieving those savings was through exam results: even a modest improvement in grades is estimated to have an average economic benefit of approximately £160,000 over that child's lifetime.
