Mathematics, Mass Extinction, Climate Change, & The Threshold Of Catastrophe

By Steve Hanley New research has identified what are called “thresholds of catastrophe” in the carbon cycle. These are concentrations of carbon dioxide which, if exceeded, lead to an unstable environment, climate change, and mass extinctions Mathematics, Mass Extinction, Climate Change, & The Threshold Of Catastrophe was originally published on CleanTechnica.

Three aspirations for long distance EVs

All the publicity currently goes to the race to make regular and premium cars have longer range. This is because most people want only one car so it must be capable of the long distance trip however rare. That must be achieved despite the inadequacy of charging points in number, speed and compatibilty of interface…

The Memorandum determines the objectives and main principles of interaction in the joint development of a gas turbine engine for a prospective long range wide-body aircraft (LRWBA/C929). Under…

Navigant forecasts transportation demand for hydrogen to accelerate Power-to-Gas growth

By mmillikin Navigant Research forecasts that the transportation segment, with hydrogen demand as a catalyst, will jump-start power-to-gas (P2G) demand and further drive down electrolyzer and other infrastructure costs. P2G—the conversion of electrical power into gaseous energy carriers—has been held back from mass adoption by high costs, regulatory hurdles, and difficulties with infrastructure. However, Navigant…

Born to Drive project investigating self-delivering cars

By mmillikin About 80 million vehicles are produced around the world every year, but the logistics for transport from the factory to the end customer are extensive, costly and completely manual. A new vehicle is moved up to 30 times manually before it reaches the end customer. The Swedish research project Born to Drive has…

ARPA-E to award $22M to 18 projects to accelerate production of macroalgae for energy and other uses; MARINER

By mmillikin The Department of Energy Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) will award $22 million in funding to 18 projects as part of the Macroalgae Research Inspiring Novel Energy Resources (MARINER) program. (Earlier post.) MARINER projects are to develop the tools to enable the United States to become a leading producer of macroalgae (seaweed). Macroalgae…

Climate Change Lawsuits Are Increasingly Showing Up In Court

By Guest Contributor When it comes to climate change policy, don’t underestimate the power of the courts. That’s the message from new research that analyzes the growing — but under-recognized — role of the judiciary in the fate of climate change regulations, and the increasing influence of science in climate litigation Climate Change Lawsuits Are Increasingly Showing Up In…
