CO2 Capture Technology That May Surprise You (Video)

CO2 Capture Technology That May Surprise You

This video focuses on CO2 capture technology that may surprise you Carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere is the leading long-term cause of climate change. The atmospheric concentration of this greenhouse gas has increased by 48 per cent since humans started burning fossil fuels. Yet, even today, it makes up only about 0.04 per cent […]

All You Need to Know About Deforestation

deforestation

Deforestation is a key driver of global warming. If tropical deforestation was a country, it would rank third in the world for carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Without forests acting as carbon sinks, we could not achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. Significant progress has been made to protect forests over the past 25 years. […]

The Deforestation Carbon Cycle

The Deforestation Carbon Cycle

Deforestation is the permanent removal of forests in order to convert the land for other purposes. Carbon is the fourth most abundant element in the Universe. The carbon cycle is the transfer of carbon between different reservoirs on Earth. It is instrumental in maintaining a stable climate and carbon balance. So, how does deforestation affect […]

Global Warming Is a Hoax: Conspiracy or Imminent Climate Change Disaster?

Global warming hoax

Some people believe global warming is a hoax; a conspiracy cooked up by politicians to control our lives. Are they right? Or, are we on the edge of an imminent climate change disaster? Is global warming a conspiracy or imminent climate change disaster? Here’s a simple way to look at the issue. Every year, our […]

Pre-Combustion Carbon Capture: CO2 Capture Technologies

Pre-Combustion Carbon Capture: CO2 Capture Technologies

There is no doubt that the main cause of climate change is the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil and gas. When they are burned, these fossil fuels release carbon dioxide (CO2). This gas enters the atmosphere where it traps heat and causes the planet’s temperature to increase. Global emissions have now reached […]

Deforestation Images: The Global Impact of Deforestation

Deforestation Images: The Global Impact of Deforestation

The following deforestation images provide snapshots of the way humans are radically changing our environment. More than 43 million hectares, a land mass the size of Morocco, was lost through deforestation between 2004 and 2017. Deforestation causes about 10 per cent of global greenhouse gases, roughly equal to the yearly emissions of 600 million cars. […]

Forestation

Forestation

In July 2019, Ethiopia made headlines worldwide through forestation after claiming its people had collectively planted 350 million trees in 12 hours. This mass planting of trees effort was a world record. In fact, the story was so popular that other governments soon made similar pledges. Britain’s Jeremy Corbyn pledged to plant two billion trees […]

Carbon Storage: This is where CO2 is captured

Carbon Storage

Carbon is the basis of all life but, as carbon dioxide (CO2), it is a major problem for our climate. Yet, only a small proportion is in the air at all. Much larger carbon storage mediums are forests, soils or oceans. What is carbon storage? Carbon (“C” as a chemical element) is present everywhere around […]

Tar Sands Network: TransCanada’s Pipelines

Tar Sands Network

The tar sands network is growing, and yet another pipeline company has put forward a proposal to get Alberta’s dirty and dangerous crude to the ocean, so it can be shipped overseas in supertankers. Tar sands network As TransCanada awaits the less-than-certain fate of the Keystone XL pipeline, it has devised a new plan to […]
