IJGW aims to bring all disciplines together for local/global solutions to combat global warming and its consequences. It focuses around nine main pillars: better remediation, avoidance, efficiency, cost effectiveness, design, resource utilisation, environmental quality, energy security, and sustainable development. It also address issues related to global changes as a direct/indirect result of climate modification and strategies for adaptation to such changes. IJGW covers disciplines as diverse as engineering, climate science, ecology, economics, education, management, information sciences, politics, strategy development, etc.
Topics covered include
- Atmospheric changes, acid precipitation, aerosols, ozone depletion, smog
- Biofuels and alternatives, carbon sequestration, carbon tax
- Climate change modelling/simulation
- Climate networks, weather forecasts/scenarios
- Earth sciences, ecology, ecosystems, biodiversity
- Energy/environment policies/strategies/security/technologies
- Global warming modelling/simulation
- Engineering tools, IT, green design/manufacturing
- Greenhouse gases, emissions and control, exergetic improvements
- Human health/welfare issues, education/training
- Hurricanes and climatic/catastrophic events, deforestation
- Renewables, hydrogen/nuclear/other cleaner energy resources/technologies
- Solid/municipal wastes, waste management
- Sustainable development, economy, environment and health
- Urban/regional planning, water/water issues, food and agriculture
The objectives of IJGW are to establish an effective channel of communication between professionals, academics, researchers, scientists, engineers, and policymakers in academia and research institutions, government agencies, all sectors (industrial, residential, commercial, governmental, transportation, utilities, etc.), and other private organisations with a common goal to understand global warming and its consequences and bring local and global solutions to these. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field of global warming and global change. The dimension of the journal is diverse and global because of the nature of the topic on global warming and global changes.
IJGW provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers, scientists, engineers and policymakers, working in the fields of energy, environment, and sustainable development with a primary focus on bringing local and global solutions to global warming and its global changes, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.
IJGW publishes high-quality original papers, review articles, and technical notes in the area of global warming, covering a diverse range of topics and problems related but not limited to energy, environment, ecology, climate, economy, fuels, social and physical infrastructure, clean and green technologies, sustainable development, policy and strategy development, etc., with a common goal of addressing an issue or bringing a solution to the issue. Those pertaining to modelling, theory, analysis, computational methods and simulations, design, experiments, visualisation and measurement techniques are also appropriate for the journal. IJGW will also include letters to the editor, book reviews, an events calendar, etc.

Pandemic models need to be responsive
4 September, 2020
Research published in the International Journal of Global Warming this month suggests that the models for understanding pandemic disease and predicting their likely course need to consider the idea that it is a dialogue with nature rather than a monologue. Global lockdowns of the kind that were put in place at the time Covid-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation might then be avoided or carried out differently if such understanding is clearer [...]
Supercritical answer to waste oil
27 June, 2020
Lubricating oils deteriorate and oxidize with use as well as accumulating particles from the engines and other machinery in which they are used. Ultimately, their effectiveness worsens and they begin to damage the components they were designed to protect they have to be replaced. Disposing of waste engine oil thus becomes a significant environmental concern. Waste lubricant cannot be simply disposed of as it is highly toxic to ecosystems and harmful to the environment and human health. Writing in the International Journal of Global Warming, a team from China has turned to a nineteenth century discovery – supercritical fluids – to help them clean up waste oil and remove contaminants efficiently and effectively [...]
Coronavirus and carbon emissions
24 July, 2020
The emergence of a novel coronavirus towards the end of 2019 that has led to the major ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has already taken its toll on people's lives, healthcare systems, and the commercial world. Anecdotal evidence early in the "lockdowns" imposed by many governments seemed to suggest that pollution levels fell as road and air traffic density fell considerably and people began working from home across the world's major cities. Consumption of certain products also fell off although initial demand for essentials was high as people panicked and stocked up on food and other supplies. However, as lockdowns are eased, there is now an increased use of plastics for disposable personal protection and in shops, homes, and the workplace, and for packaging to help reduce the spread of the virus [...]
