Masdar’s Carbon Capture Program Could Lead to Mass Delirium and Comas

Green Prophet

Oil and gas companies believe that CCS will allow fossil-burning to continue unabated, but health leaders expose the potential for widespread human fatalities in the event of accidental leaks. We would need 6000 CCS programs storing 1 million tons of CO2 each.

First Middle East Carbon Market – Dubai!

Green Prophet

Dubai will develop a strategy to reduce carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas emissions, as well as recommendations for ultimately monetising them through a groundbreaking carbon trading scheme, it was announced today.

IPCC: Climate efforts not sufficient, huge increase in green energy required to avert climate disaster

Green Blog

percent every year – reaching “unprecedented levels” of carbon dioxide in Earth''s atmosphere. Increasing carbon emissions are largely due to an increasing demand for energy and a rising coal use in countries such as China. One low-carbon energy option is nuclear power.

Coal Is On The Decline: Decreased Use of Coal Is Inevitable, With.

Living Green & Saving Energy

As much as I might like to say it will be a non-fossil fuel energy source, the energy gap will most like be filled by natural gas. With the descriptive title “Natural Gas and Renewables: A Secure Low Carbon Future Energy Plan for the United States,” this report provides the following data. Of course, this means that fossil fuels will continue to be a major source of power in the USA for a long time to come. Coal Called a Sustainable Fuel!

Oil and Gas Company Climate Commitments Are Encouraging—But They Need to Do More

Conservancy Talk

They also address investor concerns that the business model of the industry—investing most of their capital into new hydrocarbon production—might result in stranded assets as the world turns away from fossil fuels. This would require an early ramp down of fossil fuel use.

George Monbiot and the enviro-neocons

Green Blog

Even in an extreme post-peak oil scenario, cuts in fossil fuel consumption, notably coal (the most abundant and carbon intensive fuel) would still be required, if we want to avoid dangerous climate change. It’s not so much an energy crisis, but a liquid fuels crisis (or more to the point a cheap liquid fuels crisis, as discussed in the Hirsch Report ). Finally there is the issue of long term supplies of nuclear fuels.

A review of the UK’s first Green Film Festival

I don’t know the answer to that one, DVD sales are one idea, thought not ideal (can end up costing the producers more to make and distribute the DVD’s than they make back…and don’t get me started on carbon footprints here!) Much of this energy comes from Fossil fuels.
