A Massachusetts Water Resources Authority wind turbine turns in front of a 1951 megawatt fossil fuel power plant in Charlestown, Massachusetts September 18, 2013. The wind turbine powers the MWRA waste water pumping station at that site and the power plant uses natural gas and oil. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change conference will be held in Stockholm September 23 to 26. This is an in-camera, multiple exposure photograph.

A wind turbine is seen near the village of Piansano, 90 km (60 miles) north of Rome, April 16, 2012. Several European Union nations have been scaling back subsidies for renewable energy, including solar, as they try to pare back public spending amid the EU sovereign debt crisis. The Italian government said last week it will cut financial incentives for solar and other renewable energy, unleashing an outcry from investors who say the changes will slow the industry's growth in Italy.

The full moon sets behind a wind farm in the Mojave Desert in California, January 8, 2004. "Carbon neutral" schemes typically invest in non-polluting wind, solar or hydropower projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America to offset emissions of heat-trapping carbon dioxide released by burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil or gas.
Or they pay to plant trees, which soak up carbon by growing, or invest in renewable energy or energy-efficiency projects.
The aim is for governments, individuals or companies to prevent as much carbon emissions as they produce. Picture taken January 8, 2004. To match feature ENVIRONMENT CARBON REUTERS/Toby Melville BEST QUALITY AVAILABLE
