Enter the idea of carbon trading, a concept created by American economists. It’s known as cap and trade. If a company emits less than its limit, it can sell its permits to other companies: that’s the trade. Over time, the total number of permits is reduced…. and in theory it becomes more expensive to pollute. In 2005 the European Union introduced the world’s first carbon trading scheme with mixed results. Partly because there were too many permits given out... and the value of each one dropped … making it very cheap to pollute. Worldwide there...

  • American Automakers Challenged by Global Competition

    The corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standard was ratified in the 1970s to regulate the fuel economy of passenger vehicles. Car manufacturers evaded the regulation by selling SUVs as work vehicles. The popularity of SUV increased among urban drivers in the last 25 years, and particularly in the last decade. Consequently, modern SUVs are available with luxury vehicle features, and some crossover models adopt lower ride heights to accommodate on-road driving. Keith Bradsher explained the rise of the SUV with American Motors' (AMC) lobbying the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for a waiver of the United States Clean Air Act. The EPA subsequently designated AMC's compact Cherokee as a "light truck", and the company marketed the vehicle to everyday drivers. AMC's effort ...

  • Why UPS Trucks Don't Make Left Turns

    While an individual person may not save much by only making right turns, a huge corporation like UPS has proven since 2004 how avoiding left turns in its trucks can significantly increase its bottomline while reducing emissions and accidents. With nearly 100,000 trucks and hundreds of aircraft, UPS averages 15.8 million packages delivered daily worldwide. While an individual person may not save much by only making right turns, since UPS implemented a right turn policy in 2004, they have significantly increased profits while reducing emissions and accidents. UPS estimates the right-turn-heavy policy, combined with its routing software, shortens routes by 20.4 million miles and saves 10 million gallons of gas while delivering an additional 350,000 packages and reducing CO2 emissions by a...

  • 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...

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.

UPS engineers noticed how waiting to turn left caused trucks to fall behind on their schedules, consume more gas, and increase the probability of accidents. Their software maps routes with only right-hand turns unless it's quicker or easier to proceed with a left-hand turn. A driver estimates they do about 90% right-hand turns. The television show Mythbusters tested the policy with one route using 8 left and 4 right turns, and another route using 1 left and 23 right turns. The UPS-like route was just over 1 mile and 9 minutes longer, but it reduced gas consumption from 6.8 to 4 pounds. UPS' software probably would've added one or two more left-hand turns to be more efficient on time while still saving gas.

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.
