Bury Our Carbon at Sea
- UN tepid on carbon capture. // Professional Engineering;10/5/2005, Vol. 18 Issue 18, p5
Reports on the chance of technical success of carbon sequestration. Cost of mitigating climate change; Increase in electricity generation costs; Way of meeting emissions targets that allows continued use of fossil fuels.
- Carbon Dioxide Control-Technology for the Future. Cooper, C. D. // Journal of Environmental Science & Engineering;Nov2010, Vol. 4 Issue 11, p1
The world is experiencing global climate change, and most scientists attribute it to the accumulation in the atmosphere of carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and chlorofluorocarbons. Because of its enormous emission rate, carbon dioxide (CO2) is the main culprit. Almost all the...
- EVALUATION OF CARBON DIOXIDE TRANSPORTATION DEPLOYMENT ALTERNATIVES FOR FLORIDA, USA. POIENCOT, B.; BROWN, C. // Florida Scientist;Spring2012, Vol. 75 Issue 2, p73
This paper is the result of ongoing research conducted at the University of North Florida, School of Engineering regarding carbon sequestration activities in Florida, USA. The issue of global climate change has led great interest to bear on reducing carbon emissions through new technologies such...
- Climate is in critical decade: commission. BARNES, MEL // Green Left Weekly;7/3/2013, Issue 971, p8
The article focuses on the report titled "The critical decade 2013: Climate change science, risks and responses," according to which carbon emissions need to be reduced to zero by 2050 and the world should not exceed carbon budget of 1000 billion tonnes and it mentions the World Coal Association.
- Motivating mitigation: when health matters more than climate change. Petrovic, Nada; Madrigano, Jaime; Zaval, Lisa // Climatic Change;Sep2014, Vol. 126 Issue 1/2, p245
The article focuses on a research that examines whether framing fossil fuel emissions in terms of public health versus climate change differentially influenced attitudes towards mitigation efforts. The research findings indicate the potential for leveraging the public's willingness to support...
- Electricity from Fossil Fuels without CO[sub2] Emissions: Assessing the Costs of Carbon Dioxide Capture and Sequestration in U.S. Electricity Markets. Johnson, Timothy L.; Keith, David W. // Journal of the Air & Waste Management Association;Oct2001, Vol. 51 Issue 10, p1452
The decoupling of fossil-fueled electricity production from atmospheric CO[sub2] emissions via CO[sub2] capture and sequestration (CCS) is increasingly regarded as an important means of mitigating climate change at a reasonable cost. Engineering analyses of CO[sub2] mitigation typically compare...
- GHG EMISSIONS EVALUATION FROM FOSSIL FUEL WITH CCS. Dincă, Cristian; Badea, Adrian-Alexandru; Apostol, Tiberiu; Lăzăroiu, Gheorghe // Environmental Engineering & Management Journal (EEMJ);Jan/Feb2009, Vol. 8 Issue 1, p81
A present challenge for research is to determine how to use the combination of oil, gas and coal most efficiently with the minimum environmental damage. In this paper the authors have compared technologies to produce the electricity using natural gas and coal. The objective of this paper...
- THE WORLD'S BEST BAD IDEA. Friederici, Peter // Miller-McCune;Nov/Dec2010, Vol. 3 Issue 6, p46
The article looks at the idea of deliberately putting deposits of carbon in oceans to deal with fossil fuel emissions. It examines the idea of carbon capture sequestration (CCS), which is needed in mitigating the damages from emissions as human beings continue to rely on energy from fossil...
- How much oil must stay buried? Brahic, Catherine // New Scientist;1/10/2015, Vol. 225 Issue 3003, p1
The article discusses a study by Christophe McGlade and Paul Ekins in the journal "Nature" that suggests unless engineers find a way to bury carbon, coal and oil burning must stop in 15 and 25 years' time, respectively, in order to have a reasonable chance of avoiding dangerous climate change.
