Why Measure CO2 For IAQ And HVAC?

Scientific studies have demonstrated that monitoring CO2 for HVAC, rather than just for temperature or humidity, can significantly increase energy efficiency and save costs. Not only that, controlling CO2 emissions can enhance workplace productivity. Improving Workplace Alertness &  Productivity Researchers have shown that CO2 levels above 1000ppm can negatively impact on concentration and increases lethargy […]

Coal’s Dominance & Carbon Emissions Must Be Made More Apparent in Climate Change Accounting

The world’s accounting system for carbon emissions, run by the United Nations, disregards capital investments in future coal-fired and natural-gas power plants that will commit the world to several decades and billions of tons of greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new study from Princeton University and the University of California-Irvine published Aug. 26 in […]

Climate Change at the Movies

This is an interesting study concerning how people are influenced about real or entertaining issues on subject matter such as climate change. Since we have recently published articles specifically related to facts on climate change it has been interesting watching the number of deniers who penned their two-cents-worth, arguing that the debate on climate change is […]

Alarming CO2 Increase

We don’t write that much about CO2 and its impact on the planet but this news report is absolutely alarming. Sadly this is a global problem — yes, problem — that will not correct itself without some well-considered and far-reaching action steps. Each person, each business, each government must make a commitment to seek balance […]

Keeping the Carbon Capture and Storage Option

Australia should keep open the option to deploy carbon capture and storage (CCS), in readiness for global calls for deep cuts to greenhouse gas emissions, according to the nation’s leading CCS research organisation. In a submission to the Australian Government’s Energy White Paper, the Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2CRC) has called for […]

Carbon capture technology could be vital for climate targets

The future availability of carbon capture and storage (CCS) will be pivotal in reaching ambitious climate targets, according to a new comprehensive study of future energy technologies from IIASA, the Potsdam Institute for Climate Change, and the Stanford Energy Modeling Forum. The study, published in a special issue of the journal Climatic Change, provides an […]

Carbon storage recovers faster than plant biodiversity in re-growing tropical forests

A new study of re-growing tropical forests has concluded that plant biodiversity takes longer to recover than carbon storage following major disturbances such as clearance for farming. The findings, published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, have important implications for conservation since there are now many re-growing forests in South and […]

USF and KAUST Chemists Develop Efficient Material for Carbon Capture

Chemists at the University of South Florida and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology have discovered a more efficient, less expensive and reusable material for carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and separation. The breakthrough could have implications for a new generation of clean-air technologies and offers new tools for confronting the world’s challenges in controlling carbon.

How Climate Change is Destroying the Earth

We received this letter and infographic from Allison Lee: “I am part of a team of designers and researchers that put together an infographic showing how bad climate change has gotten and how it’s contributing to the destruction of our planet. I thought you might be interested, so I wanted to reach out.”

Guest Post: Dry Ice Blasting Is An Environmentally Friendly Way to Remove Mold and Fire Damage

Dry ice blasting is a relatively new cleaning method used to remove mold from walls and other surfaces. It works on the same principles as sand blasting, or blasting with other mediums such as soda or plastic beads that are fired under pressure by a jet of compressed air onto the surface that needs to be cleaned. However, dry ice blasting offers many benefits over these methods and other chemical methods of removing mold and other surface contaminants from substrates.
