The Global Fight Against Climate Change; NDCs and Net Zero Targets Worldwide

Nationally Determined Contributions |  As part of the ongoing global battle against climate change, almost 200 countries have set greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) reductions targets, or nationally determined contributions (NDCs). They're fairly self-explanatory; by a specified year, a nation aims to reduce its carbon emissions by a certain amount (compared to a previous, specific year).  […]

California – Current Progress of a Climate Champion

Learning From California's Struggle to Balance Decarbonization With Energy Resilience |  Since California passed the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, marking its commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), the state has continued to align itself with ongoing climate change initiatives and policies. After the first decade of the initial policy's implementation, California boosted […]

Sustainable Energy Infrastructure

Updating Infrastructure for Developing Renewable Energy in Cities |  People-centered smart cities are cropping up worldwide. They only account for 2% of the world's landmass but are home to most of its population, energy use, and economic activity.  Cities are adopting modern clean energy technologies to become smarter, and one crucial aspect is renewable energy. […]

Climate Solution- Sustainable Ag.

Benefits of Sustainable Agriculture Sustainable agriculture turns farms into thriving ecological lands that produce food crops, in addition to using plants that increase farms' biodiversity while sequestering atmospheric carbon. The health of ecosystems, including soil nutrition, on the farm, is a top priority when agriculture is managed sustainably.  In most traditional farming of the past, […]

The future generation of batteries

electric car Advanced li-ion batteries |  Next-generation lithium-ion (li-ion) batteries are being developed, and varieties are already currently in the marketplace. These next-gen li-ion batteries have 2-7X the efficiency of current batteries, often while reducing costs. New varieties of advanced li-ion batteries maintain a stable capacity for 20+ years. Next-gen li-ion batteries can charge in minutes, are […]

Clean Hydrogen Power

Hydrogen and the Clean Energy Transition |  Hydrogen is one of the most promising emerging energy technologies to fill the rising global demand for clean low carbon and emission-free energy sources. The recent global societal shift towards environmental sustainability, and the global imperative for climate action, have significantly altered energy consumption patterns. Clean and renewable […]

Nuclear – necessary energy

nuclear plant Both nuclear and renewable energy are needed in the global energy mix to help fight climate change.  In order to cut down on the share of fossil fuels in the world energy mix, nuclear is necessary. A total of WELL OVER 40% of the world's energy mix for renewable and nuclear energies combined is needed […]

10 Ways to Reduce Food Waste

As the climate changes, global ecosystems experience debilitating effects. Resource depletion degrades the security of the global food supply. Society can adopt eco-conscious consumption strategies such as limiting waste and supporting agricultural stability. A significant portion of food waste derives from cities. Urbanites can use food waste reduction methods and technologies to maximize the supply […]

COP21 – good news for the planet

Paris Climate Accord NDCs and Net Zero Pledges |  At COP21, commonly referred to as the Paris Climate Accord, nations sent representatives to pledge greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) reduction targets (also known as Nationally Determined Contributions, or NDCs). At the annual Conference of the Parties (COP) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), national dignitaries […]

How Safe & Clean is Nuclear ☢️ Energy?

When looking at climate solutions for clean energy generation, it is prudent to look at all clean energy sources. Nuclear power also has the highest capacity factor of any energy source and is the most reliable, and efficient, source of energy. Clean energy solutions include both renewable energy (the obvious choice); as well as nuclear energy […]
