5 categories of change in climate

Climate change is adversely affecting all parts of the earth. There have been dramatic increases in greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) globally since the industrial revolution of the 19th century. The planet warms faster as more GHGs are added to the earth's atmosphere. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, expressing the global scientific consensus, warns that global net human-caused emissions of CO2 need to fall by about 45% from 2010 levels by 2030, reaching 'net zero' around 2050...

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 […]

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 […]

Regenerative Agriculture

sustainable agriculture The United Nations (UN) has advised that a global shift towards plant-based food will counteract the worst effects of climate change. Is going vegan really going to help in global climate action, and help the world meet net zero emissions targets? Well, actually...the UN says that land-use practices that favor plant growth vs. a focus […]

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 […]

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 […]

Permanent ban on new coal mines and other sustainability priorities

Strategies for mitigating climate change |  What are the best strategies for mitigating global warming? How is the United States going to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions? Carbon pricing? The Green New Deal? Here's a brief list of sustainability priorities that the United States should implement in order to avoid contributing to the most […]
