GM has announced plans to double its global solar output to 60 megawatts in the next three years, and to increase its renewable energy use by 125 megawatts by 2020.

Centrica has been recognized by the Carbon Disclosure Project for its approach to the disclosure of climate change information. The company is featured in CDP’s Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index for the fourth consecutive year, with a score that indicates good internal data management and understanding of climate change issues affecting the company.

Global Data, a nature resource research company, reports that global oil and gas capital expenditures will top $1 trillion in 2012. This amount tops last year’s $916 billion, a 13 percent increase. More than 242 fossil fuel discoveries were reported last year, driving investor confidence in oil and natural gas futures. Higher prices and new technology are major factors in the surge.
