Fossil Fuels China: Top carbon polluter ?
posted by on Tuesday, April 15, 2008 - 09:22 AM

gfoat writes "Recent research suggests that current computer models substantially underestimate future emissions growth in China! The country's greenhouse gas emissions have been underestimated. Dr Max Auffhammer, the lead researcher, said his projections had been presented widely and no-one had raised a serious complaint. The Chinese and the UN insist that countries with high per capita levels of pollution must reduce emissions first, and help poorer countries to invest in low carbon technologies."

Fossil Fuels UK: Timms Welcomes Investment In Cleaner Coal Technology
posted by on Thursday, March 18, 2004 - 08:58 AM

gfoat writes "Government consent for construction of flue gas desulphurisation plant at Cottam Power Station, Nottinghamshire. Stephen Timms, Minister for Energy, today approved a proposal from EDF Energy (Cottam Power) Ltd to fit a flue gas desulphurisation plant at its 2000 MW coal-fired power station at Cottam in Nottinghamshire. The new plant will have a dual role. The flue gas desulphurisation plant will be designed and operated as a chemical absorption process. Injection of a limestone slurry will remove over 90% of the sulphur dioxide from the combustion gases and produce de-sulpho gypsum which is heavily used in the building trade. "

Fossil Fuels World Natural Gas Demand To Continue To Increase
posted by on Tuesday, March 16, 2004 - 02:33 PM

gfoat writes "Natural gas has played a major role in meeting energy demand in North America, Western and Eastern European countries, and industrialized Asia due to its availability and environmental acceptance. In the industrialized regions of the world, natural gas fits in the economy as the primary energy resource and as a major raw material for the production of chemicals and petrochemicals. For developing countries, natural gas is a major revenue resource and fits in the economy as a major income generator, attracting foreign investment and enhancing balance of payments."

Fossil Fuels The World Economy does not need Iraqi Oil
posted by on Tuesday, March 18, 2003 - 06:27 AM

gfoat writes "The World Economy does not need Iraqi Oil International Agency for Renewable Energy to be launched as soon as possible The World Community must now mobilise Renewable Energies for Future Prosperity and Stability A war against Iraq is impending. According to governmental and independent sources, one main aim of this war is to enable the industrialised countries to get the huge oil resources of Iraq under control. Such strategy, however, ignores the big threats of the existing world energy system that excludes hundreds of millions from welfare and creates enormous ecological, economic and political tensions and damages.

Fossil Fuels Shell shows a human side
posted by on Wednesday, April 03, 2002 - 03:36 PM

ptemple writes "In a brave move, Shell has put up an uncensored forum on its web site. Accusations of exploitation, aiding global warming and even murder remain unpurged with each and every post replied to in plain language by the company. An extra twist is that Shell employees are encouraged to reply on behalf of the company with no need to go via the PR department. Want to know how committed Shell are to renewables? Go and ask them. This could lead to a massive boost in confidence in Shell as a company. Also read the commentary in Darwin magazine."

Fossil Fuels World energy markets have testing time in 2000
posted by on Friday, June 29, 2001 - 05:02 AM

gfoat writes "Energy markets were put to the test in 2000 with crude oil prices reaching levels not seen since the early 1980s as supplies remained tight for most of the year. Natural gas prices lagged oil prices but followed upwards, reflecting the impact of contractual links and competition between fuels, according to The BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2001, published recently.

Fossil Fuels Richland,Wash: Could this be the key to NOx, reduction?
posted by on Thursday, May 03, 2001 - 09:19 AM

gfoat writes "It has been reported that by combining an electrically charged gas with a specialized catalyst, researchers have successfully reduced harmful oxides of nitrogen in a diesel engine by 50 percent. Lab results from the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory show greater reductions are potentially possible with this technology. These reductions are critical to meeting emissions requirements in diesel vehicles. Could this be the key to NOx reduction? See the full story at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory"

Fossil Fuels Is the Pot (oil industry) Calling the Kettle (coal industry) Black?
posted by on Tuesday, March 27, 2001 - 10:52 AM

ptemple writes "If you're only concerned with black soot and local air pollution, the term "clean coal" may soon no longer be a laughable oxymoron. The coal industry is developing refining techniques which can substantially ameliorate these problems. See "A Comeback for Coal? - Technological Changes Can Dramatically Reduce Emissions" below. However, according to Power Online, a website for power industry professionals, so-called "clean" coal creates forty percent more carbon dioxide (the primary cause of global climate change) than comparable natural gas and fuel oil plants. However, since President Bush has exempted carbon dioxide emissions from his anti-pollution plans (see "US President U-turn on limiting coal-power CO2 emissions" below), the CO2 problem may not be an obstacle for the ...

Fossil Fuels US President u-turn on limiting coal-power CO2 emissions
posted by on Tuesday, March 20, 2001 - 02:24 PM

ptemple writes "George W. Bush has reversed his election campaign promise to limit CO2 emissions from coal-fired plants, and has reiterated his opposition to the Kyoto protocol. In the last two years, the US has passed China to be the world's number one coal burner but Bush openly questions whether any emissions reductions are necessary and indeed if global warming is happening at all. Details in the New Scientist."

Fossil Fuels US research into laser boring for fossil fuel
posted by on Thursday, March 15, 2001 - 12:01 PM

ptemple writes "In line with the new US Presidents mandate to use more fossil fuel than ever before, the US government is sinking $500,000 dollars into investigating laser technology that can bore down to 20,000 feet or more at 10x-100x the speed of conventional boring equipment. The work builds on laser technology developed as part of military missile defence research during the 1980s and 1990s. The details on how tax dollars go from one project to make the world a better place to another are here."

Fossil Fuels $1M funding to find CO2 eating bacteria
posted by on Friday, February 16, 2001 - 12:16 PM

ptemple writes "The majority of our planet's CO2 being absorbed and oxygen being emitted is not by plants or forests, it occurs in the top 10m of our world's oceans by algae. And it to here that one team is looking for the answer in eliminating CO2 emissions from fossil fuel smoke stacks, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. Bacteria which survives in the hot waters of Yellowstone Park are being examined for the perfect strain, and emissions will be bubbled up through this CO2 munching algae before being released into the atmosphere. An arrangement of parabolic mirrors and fibre optics channel light into the stack to enable photosynthesis to occur. More details at ABC."

Fossil Fuels Internet to take up 50% of worlds electricity? We think not
posted by on Wednesday, January 17, 2001 - 07:14 PM

ptemple writes "A study recently released claims that the Internet is responsible for 8% of all national electricity consumption. George Bush has already used the figure in his energy policy to justify oil drilling and coal mining in virgin wildernesses. Moreover, the study forecasts that in the next 20 years the Internet would come to consume 30 to 50 percent of all electricity in the USA. We dubunk this story and show how the polititians have jumped on this self-interested study."
