Report finds says “negative emissions technologies” need to play a large role in mitigating climate change

Green Car Congress

To achieve goals for climate and economic growth, “negative emissions technologies” (NETs) that remove and sequester carbon dioxide from the air will need to play a significant role in mitigating climate change, according to a new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Most climate mitigation efforts are intended to decrease the rate at which people add carbon from fossil fuel reservoirs to the atmosphere.

Study suggests current levels of methane leakage would result in numerous decades of more rapid climate change from a shift to natural gas vehicles

Green Car Congress

A) CNG light-duty cars vs. gasoline cars; (B) CNG heavy-duty vehicles vs. diesel vehicles; and (C) combined-cycle natural gas plants vs. supercritical coal plants using low-CH 4 coal. A TWP >1 means that the cumulative radiative forcing from choosing natural gas today is higher than a current fuel option after t yr. Recent reports in the scientific literature and popular press have produced confusion about the climate implications of natural gas.

Study: even with high LDV electrification, low-carbon biofuels will be necessary to meet 80% GHG reduction target; “daunting” policy implications

Green Car Congress

The implication for biofuels is important, to the extent they are aimed at meeting climate and petroleum use reduction goals. The reference case scenarios assume no change to GHG intensity from current levels. while the climate-targeted scenarios assume that electricity supply is decarbonized by 80%. In the climate-targeted scenarios, they assumed that electrified vehicles receive their electricity from an 80% decarbonized electricity grid.

Failed Local Paper Put Out Of Its Misery - By Creative Greenius!

Creative Greenius

In a surprise to to all but the most savvy readers of this blog, Joe Galliani, the Creative Greenius, today fired the editors of The Daily Breeze newspaper and took over responsibility for all local environmental news coverage and analysis. So today I have canceled my subscription of many years. Maybe you missed their headline yesterday that read: Scientists: Pace of Climate Change Exceeds Estimates.

IEA report calls for no investment in new fossil fuel supply and end to sales of ICE cars by 2035

Green Car Congress

Climate pledges by governments to date—even if fully achieved—would fall well short of what is required to bring global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions to net zero by 2050 and give the world an even chance of limiting the global temperature rise to 1.5 °C, The report also examines key uncertainties, such as the roles of bioenergy, carbon capture and behavioral changes in reaching net zero.

Using the PHEV (Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle) to Transition Society Seamlessly and Profitably From Fossil Fuel to 100% Renewable Energy

Green Car Congress

The combination of harvesting whole forests and burning long-sequestered carbon sources such as coal or oil has impaired the Earth’s carbon cycle at an increasing pace. Since the energy density of liquid fuels is unchallenged by any other form of energy carrier we have today, we will have to continue to use liquid fuel to support our society as we know it. Gasoline/diesel fueling stations to replenish the liquid fuel for these engines are readily available.
