They were challenged to developing an efficient petrol hybrid plug-in powertrain, integrating it into the EMP platform and setting new limits in terms of performance. The result is on a par with that challenge: quite simply astounding. Developing 500 hp with four-wheel drive, Peugeot 308 R HYbrid has its speed limited electronically at 250 km/h, going from 0 to 100 km/h is 4.0 seconds, and covering 1000 m from a standing start in 22.0 seconds. In spite of all that, CO2 emissions are just 70 g/km. It is perfectly balanced, with 60% of its weight to the front and 40% to the rear. Peugeot 308 R HYbrid has a fiery spirit but an incredible weight/power ratio, barely reaching 3.1 kg/hp. If we were able to reach this kind of ...

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...

    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...

    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 ...

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 cha...

    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.

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?

Are electric cars greener than conventional gasoline cars? If so, how much greener? What about the CO2 emissions produced during electric cars' production? And where does the electricity that powers electric cars come from? Environmental economist Bjorn Lomborg, director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, examines how environmentally friendly electric cars really are.

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.

Development of the Peugeot 308 R HYbrid was entrusted to Peugeot Sport. They were challenged to developing an efficient petrol hybrid plug-in powertrain, integrating it into the EMP platform and setting new limits in terms of performance. The result is on a par with that challenge: quite simply astounding. Developing 500 hp with four-wheel drive, Peugeot 308 R HYbrid has its speed limited electronically at 250 km/h, going from 0 to 100 km/h is 4.0 seconds, and covering 1000 m from a standing start in 22.0 seconds. In spite of all that, CO2 emissions are just 70 g/km. It is perfectly balanced, with 60% of its weight to the front and 40% to the rear. Peugeot 308 R HYbrid has a fiery spirit but an incredible weight/power ratio, barely reaching 3.1 kg/hp. If we were able to reach this kind of performance on a segment C vehicle, it is all down to our passion for a challenge and our desire for excellence. Peugeot 308 R HYbrid is part of a very select club of cars reaching 0 to 100 km/h in less than four seconds. For impeccable dynamic handling, the car’s weight has been recentred and placed as low as possible. The Lithium-Ion 3 kWh battery has an excellent ratio between power and size, and has been placed under the rear seats in place of the fuel tank. In turn, the 50 L fuel tank has been placed in the boot above the rear electric motor and the two transformers. In their quest for perfection, the Peugeot Sport engineers have completely redesigned the bottom of the fuel tank so that it sits tightly up against the technical components. The few millimetres thus gained on the vehicle height contribute to its performance. The toggle button on the central console is used to select one of the four driving modes: - Hot Lap mode is the most powerful, harnessing the full potential from the three power sources to reach a total of 500 hp and maximum torque of 730 Nm. - Track mode delivers 400 hp and 530 Nm, mainly from the petrol engine and the rear electric motor. The front electric motor serves as an additional booster when accelerating. - Road mode is specially designed for road use with power of 300 hp and torque of 400 Nm. The petrol engine delivers its full potential while the rear electric motor helps during accelerations. The front electric motor is not used in this mode. -  ZEV makes priority use of the rear electric motor to drive the Peugeot 308 R HYbrid. The front electric motor comes into play, depending on the pressure applied by the driver on the accelerator pedal. Thanks to the all-wheel drive system, the handling of Peugeot 308 R HYbrid is pretty formidable, especially coming out of the bends. The braking system is on a par with the car's performance with 380 mm ventilated discs at the front, gripped by four pistons, and 290 mm discs to the rear. However, they are not used every time the brakes are applied, because Peugeot Sport has designed the powertrain to decelerate using the electric motors throughout the full speed range, starting at 250 km/h. Not only does this preserve the discs and pads, but this regenerative braking system is also one of the three ways of recharging the battery.

A controversial rule on water pollution allowed the agency to micromanage private land use. ----- Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/reasontv Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magaz... Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason Subscribe to our podcast at iTunes: https://goo.gl/az3a7a Reason is the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines. ----- EPA Chief Scott Pruitt has set out to transform the agency he leads to a greater extent than any of Trump's other cabinet appointees, pledging to end what he dubbed the agency's "anti-energy agenda" by loosening requirements on carbon emissions and eliminating land use restrictions. Environmentalists vehemently opposed Pruitt's appointment, depicting him as a climate change denier determined to undermine the EPA's core mission of protecting the environment. One of Pruitt's first targets is a controversial rule on water pollution put in place by the Obama administration that he deemed a "power grab" by environmental regulators. To better understand why property rights advocates applauded the move, consider the case of fourth-generation farmer John Duarte, who has fought a protracted and costly legal battle with federal regulators over how to till his 450-acre farm in Tehama County, California. In 2012, the Army Corps of Engineers, working in conjunction with the EPA, accused Duarte of damaging wetland features on his property. He was hit with $30 million in fines and restoration fees. Duarte's troubles stemmed from a 2015 provision in the Clean Water Act known as the Waters of the United States rule that was meant to better protect large bodies of water by regulating use of the streams, ponds, and ditches that flow into them. The EPA has used this provision to micromanage private land use. The agency accused Duarte of mismanaging the wetland areas located on his property, claiming that his four-inch plow furrows created small mountain ranges. They contend Duarte should have obtained a permit before tilling his own land. "The average time to obtain a Clean Water Act permit is close to two years, and the average cost just to hire the consultants and do the studies to get permits approaches a quarter of a million dollars," says Anthony François, a lawyer with the Pacific Legal Foundation who represented Duarte in his case against the government. In 2016, attorneys general from 31 states (including Pruitt) challenged the Obama administration's overreach on the Clean Water Act. The case is still active in federal court. University of Virginia Law Professor Jason Scott Johnston, who is also an adjunct scholar at the libertarian CATO Institute, believes it's likely the Supreme Court would strike down the 2015 water regulation. He says that the Obama administration expanded the definition of wetlands beyond the parameters set by the Court in the 2007 Rapanos v. United States decision. In February, President Donald Trump signed an executive order instructing the EPA to repeal the Waters of the United States rule, but getting the regulation off the books could take several years and be delayed by legal challenges from environmental groups. Meanwhile, Duarte settled his case in August for $1.1 million to avoid paying a significantly larger fine. He hopes Pruitt's focus on regulatory rollback will restore farmers' property rights.

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 are around 30 countries and 20 cities or regions that have chosen this path. representing 8 per cent of emissions. Now China, the biggest polluter on the planet has announced plans for its own national cap and trade scheme. It will be, by far, the world’s largest.

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.

Fox contributor Judge Andrew Napolitano explained the issues behind the Supreme Court’s decision to temporarily block the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan which imposes drastic new regulation to reduce power plant emissions. “The EPA announced new rules for the amount of carbon that coal-fired plants can emit into the air.” “When the Congress wrote the Clean Air Act did it intend for the EPA to impose regulations on coal-fired plants so onerous that the plants would have to shut down and go out of business? Two is, when the EPA requires the states to be the enforcing entity for the EPA rules, is that taking away discretion from the states? Is it forcing the states to do something that they as sovereign independent governments wouldn’t choose to do on their own? Those are the two issues the Supreme Court is interested in hearing.” The Supreme Court made a historic decision by reaching down to a lower court to halt the EPA from enforcing its own rules. “So after the EPA issued this rule and after a number of coal-fired plants and 29 states challenged it, the court decided that the rule would stay in effect. These challengers then appealed that decision to the Supreme Court of the United States. And yesterday it did something it has never done in history. It reached down to a lower court and said, ‘You, lower court will prevent the EPA from enforcing its own rules while they are being challenged.’ That has never happened before. “ “I think it has gone well beyond where Congress intended it to go. It intended it to keep the air clean but not at the price of closing these places down.” Do you think the Clean Power Plan is jeopardizing U.S. power plants? Share and comment below.

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/

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.

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.
