Climate Advisers explores why coal use for electric generation is on the decline and what lessons can be learned for reducing other high-emitting technologies and sectors.
A review of the climate and energy actions the Biden administration can pursue in the first year of his term.
Joe Biden ran on a climate change agenda and has laid out his plans for early action, but what might the ‘medium-term’ for climate action and the 2022 midterms look like?
Although much of the national attention has been focused on the election, a change with long-term ramifications has occurred at the top level of America’s government in the Supreme Court. (more…)
Natural gas in the United States has become king. Might Biden end that?
Matt Piotrowski and Ben Simonds present list of 12 companies that are leading the charge to develop Direct Air Capture and Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage in North America.
REPORT: Natural solutions are abundant, well-understood, and readily-available carbon dioxide removal options that exist today. They should be deployed fully and without delay. Scientists and other experts increasingly believe that nations will need to proactively deploy planetary-scale solutions to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) from the atmosphere in addition to rapidly decarbonizing the global industrial economy in order to limit the impacts of climate change.
CASE STUDY: The Carbon Offsetting Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) is a mechanism for airlines to achieve international aviation’s target of carbon neutral growth post-2020 by purchasing emission reductions achieved outside the sector. This is an opportunity for countries to finance programs that reduce emissions from airlines investing in those reductions. Throughout 2017 Climate Advisers has compiled a series of case studies across different forest nations to make available Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) programs to CORSIA. Previously, we examined Peru and Colombia. Today, we release two new case studies focused on Indonesia and Ethiopia. (more…)
