Coal is a large emitter of carbon dioxide, but in Alberta, provides more than 50% of power generation and is the cheapest form of power. Carbon taxes are calculated based on assumed future damages. These economic calculations are tied to climate models (simulations) - but climate models have over-exaggerated projections of global warming.

    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...

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?

So does Leonardo DiCaprio. And many others. The argument goes like this: Regular cars run on gasoline, a fossil fuel that pumps CO2 straight out of the tailpipe and into the atmosphere. Electric cars run on electricity. They don’t burn any gasoline at all. No gas; no CO2. In fact, electric cars are often advertised as creating “zero emissions.” But do they really? Let’s take a closer look. First, there’s the energy needed to produce the car. More than a third of the lifetime carbon-dioxide emissions from an electric car comes from the energy used make the car itself, especially the battery. The mining of lithium, for instance, is not a green activity. When an electric car rolls off the production line, it’s already been responsible for more than 25,000 pounds of carbon-dioxide emission. The amount for making a conventional car: just 16,000 pounds. But that’s not the end of the CO2 emissions. Because while it’s true that electric cars don’t run on gasoline, they do run on electricity, which, in the U.S. is often produced by another fossil fuel -- coal. As green venture capitalist Vinod Khosla likes to point out, "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." The most popular electric car, the Nissan Leaf, over a 90,000-mile lifetime will emit 31 metric tons of CO2, based on emissions from its production, its electricity consumption at average U.S. fuel mix and its ultimate scrapping. A comparable Mercedes CDI A160 over a similar lifetime will emit just 3 tons more across its production, diesel consumption and ultimate scrapping. The results are similar for a top-line Tesla, the king of electric cars. It emits about 44 tons, which is only 5 tons less than a similar Audi A7 Quattro. So throughout the full life of an electric car, it will emit just three to five tons less CO2. In Europe, on its European Trading System, it currently costs $7 to cut one ton of CO2. So the entire climate benefit of an electric car is about $35. Yet the U.S. federal government essentially provides electric car buyers with a subsidy of up to $7,500. Paying $7,500 for something you could get for $35 is a very poor deal. And that doesn’t include the billions more in federal and state grants, loans and tax write-offs that go directly to battery and electric-car makers The other main benefit from electric cars is supposed to be lower pollution. But remember Vinod Khosla’s observation "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." Yes, it might be powered by coal, proponents will say, but unlike the regular car, coal plant emissions are far away from the city centers where most people live and where damage from air pollution is greatest. However, new research in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that while gasoline cars pollute closer to home, coal-fired power actually pollutes more -- a lot more.

Billabong has traditionally undertaken individual initiatives that, instinctively, are deemed to be beneficial for the environment. These may include support for environment groups, initiation or extension of recycling programs, reductions in the use of packaging materials or the greater use of more environment-friendly fabrics and fibres. In isolation, each project has absolute merit. However, the benefit of such projects and their contribution to the Company's impact on the environment is generally difficult to quantify. In 2006, the growing global awareness of climate change and the shared global understanding of the need to reduce emissions challenged that position. In response to this, Billabong implemented a number of initiatives designed to better understand and analyse climate change risk, measure emissions output and provide the Company with a benchmark from which future improvement could be demonstrated. Central to this was the compilation of the Group's annual carbon inventory (see Carbon footprint). The 2011 Global Conference for Social Change, an initiative of the Foundation for Social Change and the United Nations Office for Partnerships, has recognized Billabong as one of its Leaders of Change, an award that recognizes companies that are committed to the 'pursuit of sustainability whereby environmental and social performance are embedded in the competitive strategy of the firm or organization'. This Case Study provides a snapshot of Billabong's carbon footprinting activities, the challenges, benefits and... future. The University of Queensland SMART initiative is proud to partner with Billabong on such initiatives. Many thanks to JM for all your support.

Since US President Donald Trump entered the White House, there is one achievement he can’t be denied. He has made good on a campaign promise to deconstruct the administrative state, and his administration has delayed or eliminated hundreds of “job killing” federal rules, often following recommendations from powerful industries. On March 13, the White House released its first preliminary budget under the Trump administration. Entitled A New Foundation for American Greatness, the most notable changes were severe cuts and regulatory rollbacks to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The budget cuts stand at a 31 percent decrease, led by Scott Pruitt, Oklahoma's former attorney general and the EPA's new chief. Pruitt's relationship with the EPA has included repeated attempts to sue the agency for items of environmental protection put in place under the Obama administration. The items challenged by Pruitt include the EPA's carbon emissions standards for new power plants, the clean power plan designed to help curb climate change and debating limits on cross-state air pollution. Since, under Pruitt's patronage, the EPA has reversed a proposed ban on a pesticide linked to autism and developmental delays in children, reconsidered rules on coal ash disposal, and repealed the Obama administration’s signature plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The US has also pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement, essentially breaching the promise to curb planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions. Betsy Southerland was a senior official at the EPA's Office of Water for 30 years. When the Trump administration decided to roll back regulations on coal waste pollution produced by energy companies, Southerland left the agency. Within weeks of vacating her position, Scott Pruitt announced he would consider repealing a rule Southerland's team had enforced, regarding wastewater discharges from power plants. Pruitt attributed the repeal to job loss and economic impact. "I dont know why he said that because at that point... we had never briefed him once on the rule. We could have definitely shown him in great detail that there was not going to be any big job loss or any big economic impact," says Southerland. "[It's] heartbreaking because we know that that rule was so necessary to protect public health." In this episode of Fault Lines, we look beyond the smoke and the scandals, and travel to North Carolina and California's Central Valley, where communities have cautionary tales about what this rollback could cost. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

Climate Plan and Coal Phase-Out Implications: Understanding Social Costs of Carbon. This is the full presentation that was given to the Agricultural Services Board in Grande Prairie on Jan. 17, 2018. "Climate plans center around reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. Coal is a large emitter of carbon dioxide, but in Alberta, provides more than 50% of power generation and is the cheapest form of power. Carbon taxes are calculated based on assumed future damages. These economic calculations are tied to climate models (simulations) - but climate models have over-exaggerated projections of global warming. Working with materials of economist Dr. Ross McKitrick, we discuss the methods and implications of the climate plan and coal phase-out." CBC and the Government of Alberta considered this to be controversial. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/friends-of-science-agricultural-service-board-conference-grande-prairie-michelle-stirling-1.4494032 Additional resources: McKitrick on Climate Change https://www.friendsofscience.org/assets/documents/McKitrick_Climate_Change_SCC_Feb_14_2015.pdf McKitrick on Climate Change videos https://youtu.be/g30JfQIK6GA Dire Consequences - Destroying Alberta's Affordable Power Advantage http://blog.friendsofscience.org/2016/09/29/dire-consequences-destroying-albertas-affordable-power-advantage/ Alberta's Climate Plan - a Burden with No Benefit https://friendsofscience.org/assets/documents/AB_Climate%20Plan_Economic_Impact_Gregory_Tech.pdf (Technical)

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. Note streaming limits.
