Here is a video on the topic with charts...



In first place on the rankings, the US has released more than 509GtCO2 since 1850 and is responsible for the largest share of historical emissions, Carbon Brief analysis shows, with some 20% of the global total.

China is a relatively distant second, with 11%, followed by Russia (7%), Brazil (5%) and Indonesia (4%). The latter pair are among the top 10 largest historical emitters, due to CO2 from their land.

Meanwhile, large post-colonial European nations, such as Germany and the UK, account for 4% and 3% of the global total, respectively, not including overseas emissions under colonial rule.

China the bad boy today...

.

China has emitted more carbon dioxide over the past eight years than the UK has since the start of the Industrial Revolution, figures have shown. Between 1750 and 2020, the UK emitted 78 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, compared with China's emissions of 80 billion tonnes since 2013.

This is despite China having emitted 14 per cent of all emissions throughout history, surpassed only by the United States, which has emitted 25 per cent of all emissions.

The UK, in comparison, has emitted just 4.6 per cent of all historic emissions - the fifth highest in the world. Around 80 per cent of these occurred before 199

Here more...

.

"The Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs have never ceded, surrendered, or lost in war, title to this territory. That means that what they say goes," a spokesman said in a statement.

Native Tribes are selling out... being bought...


Last September, Enbridge announced a deal in which 23 First Nation and Metis communities acquired an 11.57% interest in seven Enbridge-operated pipelines in the Canadian province of Alberta, marking the largest energy-related partnership of its kind in North America.

@rittmeister , @O' Be Joyful , @Wehrkraftzersetzer ... I think they found the solution to the carbon in the air problem. The solution is a “synthetic tree.”


“One of the unique advantages of this technology is that it makes possible the capture of CO2 from the air anywhere in the world. Unlike the few existing carbon capture approaches, it’s not necessary to co-locate these units with sources of CO2 emissions,” said James Aloise, who manages a portfolio of intellectual property relating to green technology for Columbia Technology Ventures, the university’s technology transfer office, which announced the agreement. “This inherent flexibility and mobility improves access to the technology, which has true potential to make a global impact.”


Scientists have designed a synthetic tree that traps carbon dioxide from the air in an attempt to combat growing emissions. The device looks less like a tree and more like a small building, but it can collect carbon about 1,000 times faster than a real tree. One synthetic tree could absorb one ton of carbon dioxide per day, an amount equivalent to that produced by about 20 cars, on average. After being trapped in a chamber, the carbon would be compressed and stored in liquid form for sequestration.

Lackner's goal is to make the synthetic tree highly efficient for its size. Compared to the amount of carbon dioxide that a large windmill can avoid generating, for example, a synthetic tree of equal size could collect several hundred times the amount of carbon dioxide that the windmill avoids.

I was informed about another German saving the world...Franz-Josef Ulm.


Franz-Josef Ulm, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at MIT, and his colleagues were interested in developing supercapacitors with readily available materials, like cement, to not only fill a gap left by battery technology but to also address another environmental issue: concrete’s carbon footprint. Their work was published 31 July in the journal PNAS.

He is spying on our phones...


Mapping potholes by phone
The New York Times · January 23, 2020
Under the direction of Professor Franz Josef-Ulm, a team of researchers from MIT, Harvard and Birzeit University have developed an app that uses phone data to determine road quality, which could help curb carbon emissions. Using this data, drivers could avoid rougher roads, which require more gas to drive on.


Better roads... better concert with carbon...


An engineer and professor, Ulm, 48, has been obsessed with the unusual properties of concrete—a material that turns from a liquid to a solid at room temperature—since childhood. "Concrete was part of my upbringing," says Ulm in a thick Bavarian accent. Back home in Germany, his mother is still a practicing civil engineer, having just celebrated her 50th anniversary in the profession.

No one talking about Ammonia fuel... could save our combustion engines... Blue Ammonia...



"Blue ammonia should play an important role, whether it’s a role as a transition or it’s a role as part of the long-term energy mix."

Furthermore, thanks to a century of ammonia use in agriculture, a vast ammonia infrastructure already exists. Worldwide, some 180 million metric tons (t) of ammonia is produced annually, and 120 ports are equipped with ammonia terminals.

You need to see what Blue Ammonia is... a scam...??? I like it when people rename or remarket something...

The Norwegians are making a new ship...


Ulstein has launched 'ULSTEIN THOR', a 149m 3R (Replenishment, Research and Rescue) design which will feature a Thorium Molten Salt Reactor (MSR) to generate vast amounts of clean, safe electricity. This enables the vessel to operate as a mobile power/charging station for a new breed of battery driven cruise ships.

.

Norwegian shipbuilder Ulstein has launched the design concept for a replenishment, research and rescue vessel - referred to as Thor - that will feature a thorium molten salt reactor. It says the ship could be used as a mobile power/charging station for a new breed of battery-driven cruise ships.

Molten salt reactors (MSRs) use fuel dissolved in a molten fluoride or chloride salt, which functions as both the fuel (producing the heat) and the coolant (transporting the heat away, and ultimately to the electricity generating equipment). There are a number of different MSR design concepts, and a number of interesting challenges in the commercialisation of many, especially with thorium (to breed fissile uranium-233).

To demonstrate the feasibility of Thor, Ulstein has also developed the Sif concept, a 100-metre-long, zero-emission expedition cruise ship. Accommodating up to 80 passengers and 80 crew, Sif will offer silent, zero-emission expedition cruises to remote areas, including Arctic and Antarctic waters. The vessel will run on next-generation batteries, utilising Thor to recharge while at sea.
