Canada To Reduce HFC Emissions By 85% By 2036

HFC (hydrofluorocarbon) emissions contribute to climate change, and Canada and many other nations are taking a stand to reduce their emissions by 85% in the next 20 years. HFCs are commonly found in refrigerators, air conditioners, foam products, and other items world-wide. Current global HFC emissions are the equivalent of approximately 1 billion tons of carbon […]

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 […]

What is Life Cycle Assessment?

Life cycle assessment (LCA) looks at the environmental impacts of a building material over the entire life of the material, from extraction to disposal.  LCA attempts to quantify these impacts for the purpose of comparing materials or buildings. What is measured? LCA is a scientific study of the environmental inputs and outputs to a building […]

Radio Waves Carry News of Climate Change

Their research shows that the strength of radio signals on the ground is a reliable indicator of temperature change above. Prof. Price and his team used simple radio antennae on the ground to measure radio waves broadcast by navigational transmitters around the globe, then compared information on the strength of these radio signals with data on temperature fluctuations in the upper atmosphere.

Study: ‘Waste heat’ May Reduce Costs for CO2 Capture

Rice University team seeks to optimize CO2 removal from power plant emissions In some of the first results from a federally funded initiative to find new ways of capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from coal-fired power plants, Rice University scientists have found that CO2 can be removed more economically using “waste” heat — low-grade steam that […]
