Klímamegállapodás: ígérem, szófogadó leszek

A világ vezetői kihozták a helyzetből, amit ki lehetett. De a neheze csak most jön. Az viszont biztos, hogy mostantól az államoknak és a cégeknek is komolyabban kell vennie a klímaváltozás elleni küzdelmet. Juhász Levente, Csermely Ágnes, Pogonyi Csaba és Vargha Péter Simon…

Asian domination and cheap US energy forever

The IEA’s World Energy Outlook in 6 charts. Here is our pick of top charts from the IEA’s latest annual World Energy Outlook (WEO), as promised in our earlier post. These are about the big trends that we (mostly) agree with. In yet another follow-up post we will also write about that the…

Trendspotting - the next 20 years of global energy

The world is either going to be constrained by the high price of energy, cook itself or it will use a lot of gas, barring a revolution in renewables. In our earlier post we showed some enduring energy trends. In this one we take a look at what happens if these trends broadly continue. This is…

Natural gas light - without the CO2?

2013.06.14. 11:38 Zsoldos István (Zsopi)

Natural gas light - without the CO2?

This is not as crazy as it sounds. Actually the technology already does exist.  In our earlier post we argued that we do not have much time in terms of climate change – it is very likely that the carbon budget will be exceeded in 20 years or less, and that the temperature increase will…

Climate change for skeptics

There’s only a 1% chance your plane will crash. Enjoy your flight! There’s no way around it: climate change is happening. Even if it’s unusually cold in June. And you don’t need to be a climate scientist to be convinced by the evidence. As some of our readers requested, we gathered the…

Hitting the carbon limit soon?

There is not a long time left to come up with a technological breakthrough to get rid of CO2 emissions. The other option is crocodiles in Scandinavia if we remain on current emission trends. Recently, there has been a lot of media attention on atmospheric CO2 concentrations reaching 400 ppm…

New US energy blueprint: gas and oil gusher

‘The United States is on the path to a cleaner and more secure energy future’. But the President does not have much to do with that. President Obama has just unveiled a “blueprint for a clean and secure energy future” for the US. The press reports noted that the controversial Keystone XL…

US gas flaring is visible from space

Due to the unconventional oil and (shale) gas boom in the US, gas flaring in North Dakota and Texas is visible from outer space. In fact, the amount of gas flared would be enough to simultaneously power the cities of Chicago and Washington… Although environmentalists’ concerns are growing…

Super-smog in China and other good news

If you worry about climate change and the environment, as we do, there have been two pieces of good news recently. One of them is the widely publicized super-smog in Chinese cities. The other one is less well known, but could be even more important: a study showing that black carbon (AKA soot) may…

LNG-trip through the Arctic, or the effect of climate change on the energy industry

LNG-trip through the Arctic, or the effect of climate change on the energy industry

For the first time in history, Gazprom is transporting liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Japan via the Arctic, and even endeavored to make the trip in November. This route is three weeks shorter than the currently used roundabout to the south, and there are no fees to be paid at the Suez Canal. All…

Fuel rationing is coming to New York – it depends on your number plate when you can buy gasoline. This is not an efficient way to solve the lack of fuel, but no one dares to raise prices. New York state decided to introduce gasoline rationing – on even days people with an even number plate…

Let’s have Prohibition?

The worse drought in the US in 50 years and sky-rocketing corn and food prices have called attention to the irrationality of biofuels again. But the truth is that ethanol and biodiesel have always been prohibitively expensive even without a drought, and not a good way to reduce CO2 emissions. Now…

The only thing in politics that could really slow climate change

The only thing in politics that could really slow climate change

No, it is not the EU emission trading system, or more of costly wind farm subsidies in troubled Europe. It is not a strict global climate deal, which has a close to zero chance. It is Chinese public anger and protests –not against CO2 emissions, but against local pollution, later on potentially…

It is good to clear up some things at the beginning, and people working for gas/oil/energy companies especially should come clean about their views regarding climate change. We think global warming is real, and uncertainty strengthens the case for action, not weaken it. So here we…
