  • The Future of Fossil Fuels in a Climate Challenged World

    Over the last two centuries, the growth of our modern global economy has been fundamentally based upon the exploitation of cheap fossil fuel-based energy. However, as climate science has highlighted, the combustion of fossil fuels and resulting greenhouse gas emissions now pose an existential threat to our environment, and indeed, the very future of human society. Anthropogenic climate change is now underway, evident in a warming world, increasingly intense droughts and floods, sea-level rise and ocean acidification. While politicians and business obfuscate over the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the latest climate science emphasises our window of opportunity in avoiding catastrophe is closing. To avoid dangerous climate change, scientists have demonstrated that the vast majority...

  • Nick Smith Challenged on NZ Climate Change Scheme Scam!

    Raw footage of NZ Environment Minister Nick Smith being questioned by Will Ryan on the legitimacy of our Emissions Trading Scheme. Mr Smith argues that this is completely different to a tax even though it hurts the economy and individuals in the same manner, with 3.5 cents per litre being charged on fuel and an extra $60 per year on household power costs among other charges. I argue the basis of this "action", with New Zealand only contributing 0.4% of total man made CO2, which is around 3.2% of total atmospheric CO2. Keep in mind that 95% of greenhouse gas is water vapour, and you soon get the picture of how little man can effect global temperature averages. The planet has been cooling slightly for the last decade but has warmed 0.7 degrees Celsius in the past century, even if this war...

The UN climate change conference,... or COP21 in Paris prepares to wrap up the first week of talks... not any closer to narrowing the differing views between developed and developing countries.

Never in history have there been so many heads of state and government under one roof, in one day, brought together for one topic, for one challenge. Never.″ That′s also why the challenge is to get those representatives′ opinions on the same page,... as Korea′s environment minister, currently at the COP21, says. ″The biggest issues are whether the Paris climate deal will be legally binding or not, and how to differentiate between emerging and advanced countries when it comes to distributing their responsibilities. As of Thursday,... there has been no significant progress on that front yet.″ Leaders of developing countries,... such as India′s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, stressed that advanced countries have caused today′s climate crisis since industrialization days,... saying they should be burdened more in reducing CO2 emissions. But then,... India is currently the fourth biggest CO2 emitter,... not to mention China, not yet classified as an advanced country the number ONE emitter. Nevertheless,... a recent report by British charity Oxfam,... ...backs the opinion of developing nations....saying climate change is totally related to economic inequality,... and that it′s a crisis driven by CO2 emissions of the ′haves′,... and that impacts the ′have-nots′ the hardest. According to the report,... the wealthiest 10 percent of the world are responsible for half of the world′s greenhouse gas emissions. Kwon Soa, Arirang News.

Pressure to reduce carbon emissions is putting the future of fossil fuel giants in jeopardy. Their survival plans involve carbon storage and floating wind farms. Meanwhile, one small German village is showing how large companies aren't always essential. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Over 80% of the world's energy needs are provided by coal, oil and gas. Although technologies to extract fossil fuels may have changed over the decades, the core products themselves have never been challenged. Until now. Pressure to reduce carbon emissions is putting the future of fossil fuel giants in jeopardy. Encouraging the growth of alternative methods to generate and distribute power. In just eight years, the value of the world's biggest power companies has halved. Leaving industry giants scrambling to redefine their role in this new energy world. Across the world, old industries are facing disruption on an unprecedented scale. The pressure to adapt has never been greater. Known as the Paris Accord, 195 countries agreed to a legally binding climate deal to reduce carbon emissions. This 5 trillion dollar industry may be facing a seismic shift but that doesn't mean it's ready to ditch the dirty fossil fuels that made it rich. Instead, many companies are banking on new methods to clean up an old process. Norwegian oil and gas giant, Statoil, struck it rich in the North Sea in the late 1960s. Over four decades later, at its Sleipner gas rig, the company is attempting to make fossil fuel production cleaner. Statoil's business still relies on the harmful burning of fossil fuels by its customers but at least the company is trying to reduce its own carbon footprint. It's transformed some of its offshore rigs with technology that enables engineers to separate the carbon dioxide and pump it underground. Statoil's Sleipner gas rig is the world's first offshore carbon capture storage plant. Each year, Statoil stores 1 million tonnes of CO2 making extraction less carbon intensive. They believe that prioritising gas over more harmful fossil fuels will further reduce global warming and keep them relevant for decades to come. Wind and solar are cleaner but depend on subsidies. To take on the consistency of fossil fuels they face a huge challenge - The unpredictable weather. In Bavaria, a tiny village has used those subsidies to take up the challenge. This community believes it's found a way to produce a steady energy supply just from renewable sources, raising the real prospect of a future free from fossil fuels. Norbert and Kristina Bechteler's family farm has been providing the local community with dairy products for over 200 years but they now have a new income from solar energy. Producing your own energy with solar panels isn't revolutionary but in this village, they're combining solar with other renewables in an attempt to achieve the Holy Grail of a steady energy supply. And they're prepared to use anything to do it. The Deputy Mayor has helped drive the village's pioneering efforts to make renewable energy a realistic option. There's one renewable that never disappears as it can be sourced from the decay of virtually any organic matter and it's called biogas. Of the four biogas plants in the village, Farmer Einsiedler runs the largest. Combining these different sources has been so successful the village now generates five times more energy than it needs. But that is just part of the challenge of turning renewables into a credible energy supply. The Disrupters is an original series exploring how major industries – from music and cars to hospitality – are currently being disrupted by the latest wave of digital innovation. As well as enjoying privileged access into the world biggest tech start ups we show how industry giants respond when faced with such tech-driven innovation - do they adapt - or die?

Over the last two centuries, the growth of our modern global economy has been fundamentally based upon the exploitation of cheap fossil fuel-based energy. However, as climate science has highlighted, the combustion of fossil fuels and resulting greenhouse gas emissions now pose an existential threat to our environment, and indeed, the very future of human society. Anthropogenic climate change is now underway, evident in a warming world, increasingly intense droughts and floods, sea-level rise and ocean acidification. While politicians and business obfuscate over the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the latest climate science emphasises our window of opportunity in avoiding catastrophe is closing. To avoid dangerous climate change, scientists have demonstrated that the vast majority of known fossil-fuel reserves must be left in the ground. In response, new social movements have emerged aiming to reduce humanity’s addiction to coal, oil and gas. Technological developments in renewable energy also offer the potential to fundamentally disrupt the fossil fuel economy. In this special Sydney Ideas event, a panel of leading thinkers will address the issue of the future of fossil fuels in a climate challenged world. CHRIS WRIGHT (Chair) is Professor of Organisational Studies and leader of the Balanced Enterprise Research Network at the University of Sydney Business School. His current research explores organizational and societal responses to anthropogenic climate change, with particular reference to how managers and business organizations interpret and respond to climate change. He is the author of a wide range of publications including the forthcoming book Climate Change, Capitalism and Corporations: Processes of Creative Self-destruction (Cambridge University Press, 2015). BEN CALDECOTT is Director of the Stranded Assets programme at the Smith School of Enterprise and Environment at the University of Oxford and an Adviser to The Prince of WalesInternational Sustainability Unit. Ben has researched and published extensively on the topic of fossil fuels and their potential to become ‘stranded assets’ as the world moves to confront the issue of climate change. BLAIR PALESE is CEO of 350.org in Australia and has been at the frontline of moves here and overseas to encourage major superannuation funds, local governments, religious organisations and universities to divest from fossil fuel investments. In the space of a few short years, fossil fuel divestment has grown to become a major global movement which threatens the fossil fuel industry’s social licence to operate. GILES PARKINSON is founder and editor of Reneweconomy.com.au, Australia’s leading website on clean technology and climate issues. He is a former deputy editor of the Australian Financial Review and a columnist for The Australian. Giles will outline recent trends in renewable technology, particularly the increasing cost competitiveness of solar and wind energy in disrupting the fossil fuel economy.

Eat less meat save the planet - right?? Not quite!! Complex issue and as I say all to frequently - Beware single issue environmentalism!! Explains how you shop and eat can potentially mitigate Climate Change. A comprehensive review of the impact of beef, cattle, methane and Climate Change. This in depth briefing raises challenges to all who have an interest in beef, livestock, land management or the environment. Farmers, livestock & food producers, consumers, land managers, soil scientists and policy makers should find issues for discussion. Intensive and extensive cattle rearing systems are compared and the apparent higher Climate Change impacts of the latter is explored. The validity of Kyoto/ IPCC greenhouse gas emissions calculations is challenged. The historic trends in cattle/ruminant numbers in UK and America are examined and found to be largely irrelevant. The underlying issue of soil management is identified as the significant factor. The deeper impact of nitrogen fertilisers is raised. For the consumer, overseas sourcing and how to reduce the energy cost of beef by 50% is explained -- along with other benefits including offsetting Climate Change. The natural carbon cycle & nitrogen cycle, and the critical function of grassland to offset global fossil fuel emissions is outlined. The importance of grazing cattle and their "waste" in maintaining and enhancing biodiversity and farmland birds is demonstrated. Contrary to reported trends, a 10 year analysis of the grassland soils reveals an increase in carbon sequestration that is significantly higher than generally accepted norms -- factors are discussed. Soil carbon (SOC) and soil organic matter (SOM) are explained and its critical function in enhancing soil fertility and increasing crop yields (20%?) explored -- indicating that there is a very large CO2 bill that is not currently being set against cereals and cattle feed. Grass or Pasture Fed livestock are found to have a significant impact on Climate Change, but concludes that the policy focus should be on an integrated approach to the carbon cycle and soil management. NB.Your inputs, or amendments, that would further discussion and increase the understanding of this complex, but important topic would be welcomed. The causes of Climate Change, the sources and global warming potential of greenhouse gases are explained in the briefing "Energy & Climate Change -- understanding the global drivers" Duration 56 mins The topic -- "Cattle Grassland, Carbon sequestration and soil fertility" commences at 24 mins -- briefing may be split at this point and remaining viewed subsequently.

Raw footage of NZ Environment Minister Nick Smith being questioned by Will Ryan on the legitimacy of our Emissions Trading Scheme. Mr Smith argues that this is completely different to a tax even though it hurts the economy and individuals in the same manner, with 3.5 cents per litre being charged on fuel and an extra $60 per year on household power costs among other charges. I argue the basis of this "action", with New Zealand only contributing 0.4% of total man made CO2, which is around 3.2% of total atmospheric CO2. Keep in mind that 95% of greenhouse gas is water vapour, and you soon get the picture of how little man can effect global temperature averages. The planet has been cooling slightly for the last decade but has warmed 0.7 degrees Celsius in the past century, even if this warming is all due to CO2 and not Solar cycles, sun spots flares, and magnetic pole shifts on earth (all recorded by NASA) the effect of man made CO2 is still close to immeasurable. Saying that we can tax/charge society in to environmental or economic prosperity is absurd! I'm all for preserving and restoring NZ's natural diversity, but this is pseudo environmentalism, crafted to pull at the heart strings of well meaning people. Light, Oxygen, Water and CO2 are building blocks of life, big government is not! The real agenda is a global carbon tax and trading forums to profit the people currently behind the fractional reserve, debt based money system. Don't believe me?

Ricky Burdett opens the first of five public Global Debates celebrating ten years of the Urban Age project. The debates discuss five core themes that have been the focus of research and debate at the Urban Age since 2005. The event series is organised by LSE Cities and Deutsche Bank’s Alfred Herrhausen Society, in association with Guardian Cities. In the run-up to the Paris Climate Conference (COP21), this debate highlighted the fundamental role that cities can play in reducing global energy demand and limiting carbon emissions. It challenged national and international decision-makers and institutions to recognise that action at the metropolitan level can have a direct impact on the health and environmental stability of the planet, as well as promoting green jobs and social equity. China and India’s urban footprints are expected to be six times larger in 2030 than in 2000, while many African cities are among the fastest growing, ushering in urbanisation to the world’s least urban continent. The World Bank has recently pledged up to US$ 29 billion in financial assistance to poorer nations to cope with climate change. The debate confronts some of the tough questions facing decision-makers – should climate change be addressed through adaptation (should we learn to live with water and flooding like the Dutch?) or mitigation (should we reduce greenhouse gas emissions by planning more connected and compact cities, and making more efficient lifestyle choices?). The world’s most respected climate change economist Nicholas Stern confronted these new realities with urban experts and policymakers working across the globe.

"The Supreme Court on Monday blocked one of the Obama administration’s most ambitious environmental initiatives, an Environmental Protection Agency regulation meant to limit emissions of mercury and other toxic pollutants from coal-fired power plants. Industry groups and some 20 states had challenged the E.P.A.’s decision to regulate the emissions, saying the agency had failed to take into account the punishing costs its rule would impose. The Clean Air Act required the regulation to be “appropriate and necessary.” The challengers said the agency had run afoul of that law by deciding to regulate the emissions without first undertaking a cost-benefit analysis."

A Congressional hearing on Wednesday, July 27 examined the European Union's (EU) plan to tax U.S. air carriers and other operators under the EU's Emissions Trading Scheme. The hearing focused on the EU's actions in the context of international law, and the impact of the EU's Emissions Trading Scheme on U.S. operators, the competitiveness of the U.S. aviation industry, and U.S. aviation jobs. Beginning on January 1, 2012, all air carriers flying into or out of an EU airport will be forced to participate in the EU's Emissions Trading Scheme, despite objections by the United States and other governments. U.S. airlines have also challenged the policy before the European Court of Justice as a violation of international law.
