Citizen science - the involvement of volunteers in data collection, analysis and interpretation - simultaneously supports research and public engagement with science, and its profile is rapidly rising. This systematic assessment of environmental and ecological citizen science projects found that they take a wide variety of forms and are increasing in number thanks to the availability of smartphones and online databases.

What impact can hydrogen and fuel cell technologies have in addressing the energy trilemma: energy security, energy cost, and CO2 emissions?

This lunchtime seminar analyses the relationship between the distribution of income and the carbon content of household consumption. Household carbon is estimated by linking expenditure data to productive sectors and their carbon intensity derived through input-output analysis. Assuming (conditional) homogeneity in preferences, the research finds that complete income redistribution might have raised household carbon in 2009 by about 2.5%.

There has been limited study to date on the environmental impacts of crime prevention measures. This paper for Security Policy addresses this shortfall by estimating the carbon footprint associated with the most widely used burglary prevention measures: door locks, window locks, burglar alarms, lighting and CCTV cameras. Window locks are found to be the most effective and low-carbon measure available individually.
