WIPO Launches New Flagship Report “Green Technology Book”; First Edition Focuses on Climate-Change Adaptation

WIPO today launched the first edition of its “Green Technology Book” focusing on climate-change adaptation – placing these measures on equal footing with mitigation measures.


Sixth Assessment Report

The Working Group I contribution was released on 9 August 2021. The Working Group II and III contributions were released on 28 February and 4 April 2022 respectively.


Armstrong Flight Research Center

NASA is researching ideas that could lead to the development of electric propulsion-powered aircraft, which would be quieter, more efficient and environmentally friendly than today’s commuter aircraft.


Why Big Tech Is Pouring Money Into Carbon Removal

The market for removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere is expanding rapidly, as major tech companies are funneling nearly a billion dollars to early-stage startups that are experimenting with various methods of carbon capture and sequestration to fight climate change. While government incentives like carbon pricing will ultimately be necessary to make carbon removal profitable, this influx of early funding could help nascent carbon removal companies scale up their tech and bring costs down.


This is what we need to invent to fight climate change

The world now has many of the tools needed to keep climate change in check, the United Nations’ climate research team reported last month. But humanity will still need to invent newer and better ones too.


Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS)

Carbon capture and storage (or sequestration)known as CCSis a process that involves
capturing manmade carbon dioxide (CO2) at its source and storing it permanently underground.
CCS could reduce the amount of CO2an important greenhouse gasemitted to the atmosphere
from the burning of fossil fuels at power plants and other large industrial facilities. The concept
of carbon utilization has also gained interest within Congress and in the private sector as a means
for capturing


Cooling Solutions Challenge

Protecting the public from heat-related illness and death during extreme heat events or in connection with other disasters is an important part of disaster preparedness and resilience and the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) mission. This Challenge is seeking innovative climate-friendly cooling solutions that can provide access to cooling to people in public and residential areas.


The Gallery of Clean Energy Inventions

The Gallery of Clean Energy Inventions exhibits profiles of 25 Larger Generators, 34 Smaller Generators, 26 Advanced Self-Powered Electric Vehicle Innovations, 29 Radioactivity Neutralization Methods, 30 Space Travel Innovations, 21 Technical Solutions to Water Shortages, and a Torsion Field School Network. The exhibit includes approximately 55 generators. Natural gas is unnecessary.


Mapping the way to climate resilience

Key takeawaysAs the deleterious effects of climate change threaten to disrupt business globally, plans to counter them are making their way into corporate agendas. Case in point: telecom AT&T is using spatial data analysis and location information to determine the impact of worsening storms on its service-delivery infrastructure such as cell towers, cables, and servers.The visualization and analysis of spatial data, referred to as location intelligence, help humans see problems in new ways, especially when combined with the processing power and speed of artificial intelligence tools. 123“Spatial analysis is this way of going beyond what we visually see. It’s going beyond a data-driven approach and much more into a knowledge-driven approach.”Lauren Bennett, Head of Spatial Analysis and Data Science, Esri2MIT Technology Review Insightsany companies don’t yet know how climate change will change their business, but more are taking the inquiry seriously, signaling a new reality—one that calls for guarding against systemic risk while protecting customer relationships and corporate reputations. Recognizing that reducing carbon emissions is essential to combat climate change, AT&T has made a commitment to become carbon-neutral by 2035.
