Counting up to green: Assessing the green economy and its implications for growth and equity | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

Economic Policy Institute

What is a green job? We tend to think of a green job as one that benefits the environment, but illustrations tend to be limited to fossil fuels vs. renewable energy. In fact, whether to categorize a specific occupation as a green job is not always straightforward: what about bus drivers, or software engineers who help design smart-grid technologies, or commercial construction workers? The economy is made up of more than coal miners and solar panel installers, and many occupations have significant roles to play along the spectrum between the fossil fuel economy and a “clean” economy....  http://www.epi.org/publication/bp349-assessing-the-green-economy/

New report on decarbonising industry in Sweden

New report on decarbonising industry in Sweden | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

A new report on decarbonising industry up to 2050 has been published by the Department of Environmental and Energy Systems Studies at Lund University in Sweden. The report has a Swedish focus but the solutions and technologies are relevant for all.



"Relying on current production systems and applying “end-of-pipe” solutions will be insufficient to decarbonise industry completely. Decarbonising the industrial sectors while maintaining production volumes requires a major effort to develop, introduce and invest in novel technologies and process designs (...)"

The report outlines a technology strategy for industry that identifies a set of broad technology platforms and infrastructure needs such as electro-thermal processes (e.g electrowinning), black liquor gasification, bio-based chemicals,... All are in need of targeted support. Sectoral roadmaps for creating a common vision between government, industry and civil society are an important first step.

The Question Day 8: What is the Most Difficult Issue Facing the Solar Industry?

The Question Day 8: What is the Most Difficult Issue Facing the Solar Industry? | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it
It's been a year of both continued expansion and mounting challenges for the global solar industry.

"The biggest issue facing the global solar industry this year is market uncertainty. A lack of consistency in government support has created an atmosphere of uncertainty leading to project delays, price drops, and a decline in hiring and expansion plans. In the United States this is not new: the absence of a strong federal energy program and lack of standardization in state-to-state programs are issues we have dealt with for some time now. What is troubling is the lack of a federal energy policy and the willingness to enact tariffs that hinder trade rather than encourage it." Alan King, General Manager, Canadian Solar

New Business Paradigm - The Nature Of Business

New Business Paradigm - The Nature Of Business | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

Successful business can be inspired by nature - Ethical Corporation

 

Author Giles Hutchins

In times of pressing challenges such as the current perfect storm of social, economic and environmental volatility, great courage is required to break rank from a paradigm that is ingrained in our business mindset.

Dawn Vance, global head of logistics for Nike puts it succinctly when she says: “Organisations have three options: hit the wall; optimise and delay hitting the wall; or, redesign for resilience.”

The Hestia Project Maps Carbon Emissions of US Cities Down to Street Level

The Hestia Project Maps Carbon Emissions of US Cities Down to Street Level | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it
A team of researchers from Arizona State University have developed a new software system, called Hestia, that is capable of estimating greenhouse gas emissions across entire urban landscapes, all the way down to street level and individual buildings.

The project, known as Hestia after the Greek goddess of home and hearth, allows the team to combine extensive public database “data-mining” with traffic simulation and building-by-building energy-consumption modeling.

According to researchers, Hestia’s increased detail and accuracy will help cities, and possibly even other nations, identify where an investment in energy and greenhouse gas savings would have the greatest impact...

Sustainability: Why CFOs Are Driving Savings and Strategy - Deloitte CFO - WSJ

Sustainability: Why CFOs Are Driving Savings and Strategy - Deloitte CFO - WSJ | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it
This has been a critical year for sustainability and business. At the Rio+20 Corporate Sustainability Forum in June, more than 1,000 corporate leaders pushed for new regulations and measures to incentivize moves to a green economy. Pending European Union regulations are expected to make certain types of nonfinancial reporting, including environmental reporting, mandatory in the near future.

Sustainability has obviously arrived on many corporate agendas. And judging from the results of a new Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) study of CFOs, it has also landed squarely on the CFO agenda. In fact, while sustainability may have taken a back seat to dealing with the global economic malaise of the last few years, it has now emerged as a finance priority not just because of regulations and the push for transparency—but because it has been demonstrated to be a valuable weapon in a CFO’s cost-cutting arsenal.

Bien bel article sur la voiture nucléaire.

Finalement, l'énergie nucléaire a encore de beaux jours devant elle et ils n'auront de cesse de trouver des combines pour justifier leur existence.

Cette saloperie, la voiture électrique, est tout-à-fait susceptible de nous emmener à notre perte. Alors que le moteur thermique, même à pétrole, ne pose que peu de problèmes. Le CO2 n'est en réalité responsable que de 26% de l'Effet de Serre, l'essentiel étant dû à la vapeur d'eau et au méthane.

Autrement dit, nous avons là clairement la preuve que les arguments du GIEC sont spécieux. Et que l'immense majorité de scientifiques de la planète qui modèrent l'importance du CO2 dans le réchauffement, ceux qu'on appelle "climatosceptiques"pour les décrédibiliser, alors qu'ils ne sont qu'intelligents et "GIECOsceptiques" a raison.

...Encore une arnaque catastrophique!

Voyez-vous, le pétrole ne fait qu'ajouter UN PEU de CO2 dans l'atmosphère. On nous sert des chiffres : 280µg/m3 normalement, presque 400µg/m3 aujourd'hui. Il n'empêche, le CO2 ne représente que 0.038% de l'atmosphère et n'est responsable que de 26% de l'Effet de Serre.

En imaginant que nous supprimions complètement le moteur thermique de la planète, on diminuerait la proportion de CO2 de combien? ....3x rien!

Alors que pour ces bagnoles, on s'apprête à entretenir une source à l'origine de 100% des catastrophes nucléaires à même de détruire l'Humanité.

La voiture électrique est clairement un crime.

Over the past decade, efforts in environmental stewardship have increased exponentially. Now being green, clean, and using renewable and sustainable energy sources are ways of life. More and more organizations are bending to the demands for efficient and unpolluted products, leading to a surge in green technologies and sustainable farming techniques. Such awareness and effort is truly commendable and has sparked impressive energy projects all over the world: one of the most recent being David Green’s Ecoisland project on Britain’s Isle of Wight. Within the past year, the Ecoisland project has become world-renowned due to its goal to make the small island a self-sufficient haven of renewable energy by 2020. Such prowess and devotion to environmental health is truly a praiseworthy cause that deserves applause and recognition.

Canadian government cuts world-renowned ozone science group - Greener Ideal

Canadian government cuts world-renowned ozone science group - Greener Ideal | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Montreal Protocol. It is an international treaty that phased out chemicals that were destroying the ozone layer. Without the protocol, experts say skin would burn after a five-minute exposure to the sun in London or New York by the year 2065. And NASA has calculated that skin cancers would be at least 650% higher.

But on this anniversary celebrating ozone protection, a different narrative is playing out in Canada.

Canada‘s ozone science group is the latest victim of the Conservative government’s budget cuts. There are reports this week that everyone who was still left in the group has been re-assigned to other projects.
