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.

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.

Setting the Record Straight About Renewable Energy

As analysts and observers of the transition to a lower-carbon and workable energy economy, we don’t normally write about films. But we’re venturing into the realm of cultural commentary in light of the recent release of Planet of the Humans, produced by Michael Moore. Throughout Moore’s career, he has used documentary films to illuminate social and economic issues in many domains. Sadly, his newest film includes so many misconceptions and so much dated information that we feel compelled to clarify the facts about renewable energy.

What is Solar Geoengineering and Why is it Controversial?

The fact is the CO2 is in the atmosphere. Without a time machine, we can’t make it go away. We want to, in the long run, do carbon removal. But during the time that concentrations are high, we might want to do solar geoengineering to reduce the climate risk.

Biomimicry Institute

Biomimicry offers an empathetic, interconnected understanding of how life works and ultimately where we fit in. It is a practice that learns from and mimics the strategies used by species alive today. The goal is to create products, processes, and policies — new ways of living — that solve our greatest design challenges sustainably and in solidarity with all life on earth. We can use biomimicry to not only learn from nature’s wisdom, but also heal ourselves — and this planet — in the process.
