    IPCC-SPECIAL INSIGHT BRIEFING | CLIMATE SCIENCE FIVE-PART SERIES

    The Climate Group has written a five part briefing series covering the basics of climate science, ahead of our live broadcast with authors of the anticipated IPCC report, which will be launched immediately before the invite-only transmission on Friday September 27, at Climate Week NYC 2013.

    AMERICAN CLEAN REVOLUTION: FROM DIALOGUE TO ACTION

    What actions can be taken in the coming years in order to set the US on the path towards a truly low carbon, resilient society? This briefing explores this critical question, which will be the basis of the discussion among business and government leaders at this year’s Climate Week NYC 2013.

    INSIGHT BRIEFING | CARBON PRICING

    In light of the recent focus on the EU ETS, this briefing provides an overview of the state of carbon pricing policies around the world - including Australia, China, Europe, India, and the United States. It concludes that, while the EU ETS is in need of reforms, investors and policymakers should not give up on carbon pricing.

    INSIGHT BRIEFING | UNCONVENTIONAL GAS

    This briefing reviews the pros and cons of the exploitation of unconventional gas resources, in particular from the perspective of addressing global climate change. It highlights the economic benefits as well as the environmental challenges associated with extraction and use. It then looks at regional responses around the world and concludes with an analysis of the role of unconventional...

  • This week I met an owner of an Tesla Model S electric sedan who raised the question of whether electric vehicles are really better for the environment when you including everything, including the resources that go into making the battery and the impact of disposing of it. He was feeling uneasy about his environmental bona fides.

    Renault recently made public a report that provides a fair assessment by comparing an electric version of its Fluence sedan with gas and diesel-powered versions of the same car. And it makes clear that electric cars are, indeed, better for the environment. The report is a life-cycle assessment, a “cradle to grave” analysis, including not only the emissions involved in using the car, but also the emissions from making it, the resources consumed in manufacturing, and a range of environmental impacts. It looked at not only greenhouse-gas emissions, but impacts on acid rain, ozone pollution, algae blooms, consumption of water and materials such as steel and copper, and total energy demand.

    The study found that while the environmental impact of making electric vehicles is greater than for making gas and diesel vehicles, this is more than made up for by the greater impact of gas and diesel vehicles while they’re being used. This is true in terms of total energy consumption, use of resources, greenhouse gases, and ozone pollution. The electric vehicles were assumed to be charged from a grid that includes significant amounts of fossil fuels. (Other stud...

  • Can Shale Gas Be Safe for Us and the Environment?

    Environment, Environmental Design

    Environmentalists, local communities, and civil actors maintain that hydrofracking in its current unregulated form is intolerable for our environment and public health. The process is familiar and infamous. After extractors drill a well, they pump millions of gallons of water, sand, and various chemicals into it to fracture the shale the gas is stored in and allow the gas to flow freely out of the well. The Sierra Club estimates that 80-300 tons of chemicals may be used in hydrofracking, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene. While shale gas can serve as a stepping-stone towards renewables, its production could leave our aquifers decimated with chemicals that pose significant health risks. Benzene in particular is known to cause cancer, neurological harm, and adverse developmental effects in pregnant women.

    Such potential health risks, coupled with the environmental impact of the physical aspect of drilling, have compelled the widespread anti-fracking movement among environmentalists and local communities alike. Not all of the popular dissent calls for an absolute ban on hydrofracking, however. Civil society would not be so opposed to fracking if gas companies would disclose details of the extraction process and attempt to mitigate the harmful effects. Prominent environmental groups, such as the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), would simply prefer if gas companies put such effective safeguards in place. The NRD...

  • Ozone and Freon Fraud

    Environment, Environmental Design

    There is solid information that ECO-EXTREMISTS, CORPORATE CEOS, GOVERNMENT ENVIROCRATS, and MEDIA MOGULS form a loose coalition to promote radical, costly, self serving goals, and to mislead and confuse the people at large about environmental problems. Further, many so called scientists, who live from direct or indirect U.S. tax funds, ape these extremist views for personal gain.

    For example, Federal Government Agencies have prepared, including color coded maps, plans to establish BIO-DIVERSITY STRATEGY for all American land and people. This plan will, if implemented, establish "HABITATS" for all our people; except for the ELITE.

    In some areas of Kentucky, such as Jefferson County, citizens are forced to have annual auto emissions tests because of EPA regulations. The EPA and local regulators use slight of hand data by sounding local alarms whenever Ozone levels, as measured by them, reach the mid-point of their scale. Their recorded readings have not reached the upper level of their scale at least as far back as 1980. Further, there is not scientific data to support their claimed danger if the upper scale is reached. Everyone knows when it is hot and or humid, just by going outside their homes or work places.

    In a recent article in the Kentucky Journal of Commerce and Industry, 8/8/98 "EPA LIED", it was pointed out the EPA had "cherry picked" data on secondhand tobacco smoke as a cause of cancer; and no data existed to support EPA claims in t...

  • Dr. Jason Lee compares the enzyme additives he’s testing in chicken broiler feed to the probiotics now commonly added to human food, such as yogurt. Like probiotics, the enzymes he’s testing improve digestibility of the food the chicken eats, acting within the gut, said Lee, who is a poultry scientist with Texas A&M AgriLife Research at College Station. “And like probiotics, the enzymes naturally occur in nature,” he said. The analogy is imperfect, he said, as the probiotics added to yogurt and other foods to aid digestion are live bacteria, while enzymes are not alive at all, but merely simple proteins. Improving digestibility of poultry rations is important for commercial producers for two reasons, Lee said. The first reason is improved digestibility means improved feed efficiency – less feed is required for each pound of weight gain. Digestibility of soybean meal by poultry is already high, 80 to 85 percent, according to Lee. “But we want to make that much higher,” he said. According to the National Chicken Council, in 2010, U.S. companies produced nearly 9 billion chickens for meat consumption, most of which were broilers, with a small percentage from breeding stock and spent hen egg-layer flocks. This equates to more than 5 billion pounds of meat, most of which was consumed domestically. “The poultry industry is very competitive,” he said. “With feeds sources such as soybean meal and corn going up every year, only a small percentage of increase in efficiency can mea...

    Container company Pentalver has created a new solution to the problem of where to house a new wood pellet store using its ISO containers.

    With a ready supply of new or pre-used containers, storage facilities, skilled container conversion personnel and on-site electrics and plumbing, Pentalver says it is able to rework shipping containers to create a separate boiler house and fuel store, with an internal capacity of 33.2 m³.

    It adds that the benefits of using shipping containers include their strong structure and weight bearing capacity which makes them ideal for housing heavy boiler equipment. There is also no need for additional foundations or a base as containers can be landed directly on to the ground.

    Other benefits of the container boiler room are said to include: portability, ease of installation (it simply needs to sit on a concrete plinth) and a low cost alternative to an expensive permanent structure.

    Sam Baggley, group container sales manager at Pentalver, said: “With the government committed to meeting 15 percent of the UK’s energy demand from renewable sources by 2020 and financial assistance available through the Renewable Heat Incentive, biomass installations are on the increase.

    “Our converted containers provide a cost-efficient method of creating a totally bespoke boiler room that can be located in close proximity to residential or commercial properties.”

  • ADB Ready to Fund Alternative Energy in Azerbaijan

    Environment, Environmental Design

    Adb_177_

    The Asian Development Bank is ready to allocate some $40 million to Azerbaijan for developing alternative and renewable energy sources, ADB reported on its official website on May 10. According to the report, the Project aims to promote renewable energy development in Azerbaijan through developing two pilot renewable energy projects (biomass cogeneration) with a total installed capacity of 16 megawatt (MW) for efficient electricity and heating supply in Oghuz and Agjabedi regions. The project outputs will consist of construction of two biomass cogeneration plants in Oghuz and Agjabedi regions, construction of heating supply systems in Oghuz and Agjabedi regions, and project management and supervision, including consultancy services for project supervision, safeguards compliance, reporting, and capacity building for the executing agency. According to the Bank, experiences from many other countries demonstrate that biomass power generation is an effective and economic solution to convert biomass fuel to electricity and heat. With the project, it is estimated that about 95 million cubic meters of natural gas will be saved per year for export, thus increasing the government revenue by at least $5.6 million per year. The project will also result in avoidance of GHG emissions, and a reduction of 24,000 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year. The Government of Azerbaijan is committed to promote renewable energy and sustainable development to ensure environmental safety. Azerbaij...

    Again and again we hear the message that resources are scarce, and that we have to ensure that they are not lost in our waste. Explanations as to which resources we are talking about and how we avoid wasting them, however, are in short supply. Waste may contain many different resources depending on origin and prior use. The resources of waste may be considered a material resource, an energy resource or a nutrient resource, and typically a waste fraction will comprise a mixture of these in varying quantities. When evaluated from a materials and nutrients point of view, however, many waste fractions do not contain any significant recyclable resources without them first being subjected to thorough sorting and cleaning processes – processes which both economically and in terms of energy are very costly. At modern waste to energy facilities with combined heat and power production a highly efficient recovery of the most important resource of these waste fractions - energy - can be ensured. When material resources are recycled, an actual environmental benefit only occurs if it results in savings of virgin materials. Similarly, for it to be an environmental benefit, the recovery of energy has to supplant other energy production whereby the consumption of fuels and/or materials is spared. Despite global efforts to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels by developing alternative renewable energy production, the production of both power and district heating, will in the coming 20 years con...
