all news, articles, workshops, etc. that deal with reducing CO2 and GHG production would fit into this category:  e.g., everything from nuclear to cook stove adoption, CCS, photo-system 2, solar and wind energy as well as the benefits of enlightened urbanization and lower carbon-footprint lifestyles

Special Technical Presentation, Charles Skinner: "Fusion, the Future of Energy"

Charles Skinner is Principal Research Physicist at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, a collaborative national center for fusion energy research at Princeton University. Dr. Skinner has demonstrated innovative solutions to managing plasma-wall interactions in the extreme environment of high heat and particle fluxes in magnetic fusion devices. From studies of tritium retention issues on the original Tokamak Fusion Test Reactor, he invented and demonstrated a novel laser-based detritiation technique.

GHG Reduction Consequences of Going Vegan Measured

Along with their obvious benefits, agriculture and food production have significant environment impacts: Carbon dioxide emissions result from the power requirements of farm machinery and from the transport, storage and cooking of food. Nitrous oxide (a potent greenhouse gas) is released from soils when they are tilled and fertilized. Methane (also a greenhouse gas) is released in large quantities through enteric fermentation. Indeed, food…

IPCC Working Group III's New Urbanization Chapter. Karen Seto

A video accompanying the Shell Scenarios makes reference to a sobering projection: the world is effectively adding a new city of a million people every week and will continue to do so for much of the 21st century. The growth will occur mostly in Asia, and could add as many as four billion people to a world struggling to balance growing demands for energy with growing needs to mitigate climate change.

Aerosol Sulfates. A Free Geoengineered Lunch?

In 1896 Svante Arrhenius published On the Influence of Carbonic Acid in the Air upon the Temperature of the Ground which laid out the foundation of how carbon dioxide affects global climate.  His suggestion that global coal production (then 500 million tons per year) could be so disruptive has been verified, hastened by soaring fossil fuel consumption, including a 17-fold increase in coal…
