Racing Extinction — New Trailer Shows CO2 Emissions As They Occur Using Technology

Ever wished that you could actually see carbon dioxide emissions as they occur? That people could actually see the huge quantities of the heat-trapping gas that are released from the industrial facilities and machines that cover our modern landscape? That would certainly make it easier to explain anthropogenic climate change to people who have trouble

What Makes A Town An "EV Town" — Normal & Others Show Leadership

How come Normal, Illinois–about 150 miles south of Chicago–has ten times as many electric vehicles per capita than the U.S. average? (You’re right; it’s not just coincidence.) A coalition of business, industry, nonprofits, all levels of government, and farsighted individuals has converged to transform Normal into an EV town. And it’s not an exclusive community.

Warning (Big One): CO2 Emissions Rising with Economic Recovery

New Worldwatch Institute report stresses the urgent need for cuts in global greenhouse gas emissions. Although global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) declined slightly in 2009, the beginnings of economic recovery led to an unprecedented emissions increase of 5.8 percent in 2010. In 2011, global atmospheric levels of CO2 reached a high of 391.3 parts per

ExxonMobil Gets Record €3.3-Million Penalty for Not Reporting CO2 from Scottish Plant

  ExxonMobil either slipped up big time recently by not reporting approximately 30,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from its Scottish Fife Ethylene Plant. As a result, the oil giant has been hit with a record €3.3-million fine (€3,296,600 to be exact). The fine came from the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) “An Exxon spokesman told BusinessGreen the under-reported emissions accounted

Livestock Production, Environment, and Going Green

Several months ago, back in June of 2010, I wrote up a story on the environmental impact of eating meat based on a new-at-the-time United Nations (UN) report on the matter. I recently ran across another good story on this topic on a friend’s site, Global Warming is Real, titled “Eating Less Meat to Cut CO2 Emissions” that resulted in a follow-up.

Global Carbon Dioxide Emissions Fall in 2009 – Past Decade Still Sees Rapid Emissions Growth

The latest EPI release is on carbon emissions trends and the potential results. by Amy Heinzerling In 2009, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in China—the world’s leading emitter—grew by nearly 9 percent. At the same time, emissions in most industrial countries dropped, bringing global CO2 emissions from fossil fuel use down from a high of 8.5 billion

Question: How to Curb CO2 Emissions and Feed the World?

In a recent paper published on the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences website (Greenhouse gas mitigation by agricultural intensification, by Jennifer A. Burney, Steven J. Davis, and
David B. Lobell), the authors estimated the GHG emissions from U.S. agriculture for the period from 1961 through 2005–a period of great agricultural intensification–and show a massive decrease in GHG emissions as a result of this intensification.

Environmentalists Should Give Up Meat: Cows Worse than Cars for Global Warming

“Now should be environmental vegetarianism’s big moment. Global warming is the single biggest threat to the health of the planet, and meat consumption plays a bigger role in greenhouse gas emissions than even many environmentalists realize.” – Ben Adler[social_buttons] This quote above is from an article by Ben Adler in American Prospect, titled “Are Cows
