Leveraging the Natural Gas Boom to Cut Carbon opportunities beyond electricity generation

While global greenhouse gas emissions continue to soar, U.S. emissions are back down to where they were in the mid-1990s. This decline is partly due to the economic downturn, but a key contributor has been electricity generators’ shift from coal to natural gas.

Climate Change Math: More Carbon in Ground than Atmosphere Can Take Carbon and De-carbonization, Climate Environmental Policy,

There is vastly more carbon in the ground than can safely be put into the atmosphere, whatever temperature limit you think there should be.  Policy should be seeking to ensure that the available carbon budget is used as wisely as possible.

The Price of Ignoring Energy Innovation wealth and (highly efficient) energy consumption equivalent of present-day Germany,

The energy and climate challenge of the 21st century is easy enough to describe. For a world of 9 or 10 billion people to live at the per capita wealth and (highly efficient) energy consumption equivalent of present-day Germany, we will need three to four times as much energy as we consume…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/national-news/the-price-of-ignoring-energy-innovation-wealth-and-highly-efficient-energy-consumption-equivalent-of-present-day-germany/ (highly efficient), Carbon and De-carbonization, carbon emissions, clean energy innovation, Cleantech, Climate, Energy and Economy, energy consumption equivalent, Finance, Ignoring Energy Innovation wealth, Politics & Legislation, population growth, present-day Germany, Renewables, Shale gas

CO2 Hits New High: Living In a League Where Batting 400 Is Not Good the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced yesterday.

Carbon dioxide concentrations have hit 400 parts per million for the first time in at least three million years, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced yesterday. That’s 40 percent more than the CO2 level in the air at the start of the Industrial Revolution in the…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/international-news/co2-hits-new-high-living-in-a-league-where-batting-400-is-not-good-the-national-oceanic-and-atmospheric-administration-announced-yesterday/ 400 ppm, Atmospheric Administration announced, Carbon and De-carbonization, carbon emissions, Climate, co2, CO2 Hits New High, Columbia University, Energy and Economy, Industrial Revolution, Living In a League, National Oceanic, News, Risk Management, Sustainability

Climate Change and CO2 400 ppm graphic and stories by BBC (Carbon dioxide passes symbolic mark) and AFP (Carbon dioxide in atmosphere hits historic high)

If you follow the climate news to even a moderately obsessive degree, then you’re aware that we’ve been creeping up on 400ppm, which is to say, an amount of CO2 in the atmosphere that’s 400 parts per million, by volume.

EIA: Current Energy Policy Would Keep U.S. Carbon Emissions Flat Through 2040 U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA)

The new analysis by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) is a classic good news, bad news story, summed up in this chart:

The good news is that merely by extending existing energy policies, the United States could keep energy-related carbon dioxide emissions flat through…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/international-news/eia-current-energy-policy-would-keep-u-s-carbon-emissions-flat-through-2040-u-s-energy-information-administration-eia/ Carbon and De-carbonization, carbon emissions, climate change, Energy and Economy, Energy Policy, Environment, Environmental Policy, News, Politics & Legislation, U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA)

State of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme Wall Street Journal wrote that the vote was the ‘equivalent of the pope renouncing celibacy

Last week, in a surprise to many, the European parliament defeated a proposal to postpone the auctioning of emissions permits, a move that would have propped up prices in the bloc’s carbon market, known as the EU Emissions Trading Scheme or ETS. The market reaction was quick and…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/international-news/state-of-the-eu-emissions-trading-scheme-wall-street-journal-wrote-that-the-vote-was-the-equivalent-of-the-pope-renouncing-celibacy/ Cap-and-Trade, Carbon and De-carbonization, carbon emissions, Climate, climate policy, Environment, Environmental Policy, eu emission trading scheme, EU Emissions Trading Scheme, Finance, Politics & Legislation

Renewables Aren’t Yet Cleaning Up the Global Energy System International Energy Agency looking at the carbon intensity

Looking for a reason to be cynical? You’ve found it: Dirty energy is winning.
That’s the conclusion of a new report from the International Energy Agency looking at the carbon intensity of the global energy system.
