Gordon McGlone's curator insight, October 30, 2013 5:25 AM

It is time for the business world to accept fully the one planet principle; we have this earth, its geological resources and our fragile biosphere - that's it.  The Prince of Wales is spot on when he calls for the business world to become main players in planetary stewardship.

||"The time then has surely come for our financial institutions to recognise that the Earth is not a limitless resource that can be plundered at will, and to integrate that principle of stewardship into our financial structures."||

Gordon McGlone's curator insight, October 30, 2013 5:27 AM

Come on business world; face up to the big challenge of continuing economic health on a finite planet.  So far you have not even begun to glimmer with bright ideas let alone deliver sustainable economic growth,

Infographic: Carbon Markets of the World

Dozens of countries, regions, and cities have launched carbon markets or plan to launch them as a way to drive down greenhouse gas emissions. These are the markets existing now or coming soon and the percentage of greenhouse gas emissions each covers..

New research shows that European forests are 'peaking' in terms of their ability to absorb carbon dioxide. If this is true, writes Alan Simson, it's time to embrace some novel landscape-scale solutions ...

Energy sources have changed throughout the history of the United States (1776-2012)

Energy sources have changed throughout the history of the United States (1776-2012) | Offset your carbon footprint | Scoop.it
Energy Information Administration - EIA - Official Energy Statistics from the U.S. Government

 

Energy consumption patterns have changed significantly over the history of the United States as new energy sources have been developed and as uses of energy changed.

 

A typical American family from the time our country was founded used wood (a renewable energy source) as its primary energy source until the mid- to late-1800s. Early industrial growth was powered by water mills. Coal became dominant in the late 19th century before being overtaken by petroleum products in the middle of the last century, a time when natural gas usage also rose quickly.

 

Since the mid 20th century, use of coal has again increased (mainly as a primary energy source for electric power generation), and a new form of energy—nuclear electric power—emerged. After a pause in the 1970s, the use of petroleum and natural gas resumed growth, and the overall pattern of energy use since the late 20th century has remained fairly stable.

 

While the overall energy history of the United States is one of significant change as new forms of energy were developed, the three major fossil fuels—petroleum, natural gas, and coal, which together provided 87% of total U.S. primary energy over the past decade—have dominated the U.S. fuel mix for well over 100 years. Recent increases in the domestic production of petroleum liquids and natural gas have prompted shifts between the uses of fossil fuels (largely from coal-fired to natural gas-fired power generation), but the predominance of these three energy sources is likely to continue into the future.
