Promoting lower emissions from agriculture

Organizations such as the FAO are promoting better agriculture management to reduce emission for meat. On the other hand, GMOs are still unpopular around the world even if they could contribute to limiting tilling...

Demand for lower-emission agriculture

Reducing emissions hasn’t happened yet as eating habits have only recently started to change in different ways: -Eating less calories from meat and more calories from vegetables, as vegetable production emits less than meat...

Progress for agriculture

Any progress to cut down CO2 and methane emissions from agriculture can target two goals: -Consume less or differently, considering emissions for meat calories are higher than vegetable calories. -Generate less carbon dioxide or...

Falling prices for solar, wind or batteries

If the price of renewables and battery storage continues to fall, some hope that hydrocarbon energy could be driven off by market pressure. As of now, most wait for the prices of renewables to...

Few energy-efficiency regulations

Energy-efficiency for hydrocarbon burned for production cycle and for output devices could go further for cars (i.e., MPG) or for light bulbs (i.e., lumens per watt). Emission-efficiency regulations also target oil and coal industries...

Pledges for poor countries

For not burning their coal, developing countries demand compensation from Western countries. It makes sense, as rich countries developed on cheap hydrocarbon energy since the industrial revolution. COP21 promised compensation funds. It will challenge...

GHG emissions are still increasing!

Renewable energies may increase, but the overall hydrocarbon consumption climbs more than renewable energies do. The world is waiting for prices of renewables to drop further. The global progress big question is: will prices...

Power plants: progress from natural gas

Natural gas emits about half of the CO2 emissions than coal for the same energy generation. EU and US emissions have diminished due in part from switching electricity production from coal to shale gas....

Progress from Power plants

Electricity from “dirty” power plants running on coal or natural gas are still there and still cheap. Cheaper natural gas power plants are also being built to replace old coal power plants being retired....

Only thriving corporations

Thriving corporations may act on their own to cut their emissions, especially the most preeminent ones shamed by public outcry. Other corporations can’t afford it as any additional cost could make them noncompetitive especially...
