Education Contraction and Convergence is a great proposition
posted by on Thursday, January 02, 2014 - 11:03 PM

gfoat writes "As we have a tremendous environmental crisis at hand, contraction and convergence is a very proper proposition. Lowering our greenhouse gas emissions is a good step towards a more liveable planet. Also, having the nations work in unison will help us become more united over this issue as a planet, and less divided among nations. C&C will allow all countries to a reasonable way to achieve low emissions by establishing entitlements or rewards for meeting target emission standards. This allows countries to continue to emit emissions as long as they are meeting goals set by a world governing standard. Another benefit from this solution will help poverty stricken nations become better economies through those standards. See the full details."

Education UK: CLIMATE CHANGE DEBATE NEEDS REFOCUSING
posted by on Monday, March 10, 2008 - 11:36 AM

gfoat writes "There is a fundamental conflict between those who think that climate change can be resolved through technology alone and those who believe that more profound changes to our lifestyles and values are urgently needed, argues Dr Kate Rawles, a lecturer in Outdoor Studies at the University of Cumbria. Kate takes the latter view, arguing that first, while increases in energy efficiency and other technological innovations have an important role to play they cannot provide a comprehensive response, and second that some of the wilder technological proposals such as mirrors in space, or seeding clouds with sulphur particles, are downright alarming and bound to have unforeseen problematic consequences.

Education UK: Renewable Energy world Article : Hydrogen The Last Word
posted by on Tuesday, August 03, 2004 - 06:43 AM

gfoat writes "In a recent article in Renewable Energy World, entitled “Hydrogen, The Last Word” (March-April 2004), Dr Ulf Bossel appears to be precluding any debate, despite the fallacies inherent in his arguments. Dr Bossel’s illustration of the high efficiency of wind generated electricity obscures the first basic principle that the grid does not store electricity. The big sources of renewable energy, wind, solar, tidal or wave energy are all variable in supply and will be dependent on hydrogen storage to maintain an economic load factor. If supplies of renewable energy are not available, then back up from the national grid, which in the UK is only 35% efficient, will be required. "
