Tackling climate change is a big task, but there are clear ways of cutting your contribution to carbon emissions, also known as your carbon footprint. This is how changing three aspects of your life can make a difference. #CarbonFootprint #ClimateChange #BBCNews Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog
What are carbon emissions and where do they come from? What impact do they have on the environment? Why is it important to reduce our "carbon footprint?" (Presented by AlliantEnergyKids.com)
As extreme weather events roiled communities around the world this summer, businesses and governments are feeling more pressure than ever to respond to climate change. Tracking emissions has historically been difficult, because the methods for tracking a company’s carbon footprint are all over the place. In the U.S., corporate sustainability reporting remains unstandardized and largely voluntary. But the landscape looks better in Europe, as a recently adopted proposal is set to expand the number of companies that must produce sustainability reports. That measure will also require more detailed and standardized disclosures and impose mandatory audits. That’s where companies like Plan A and Planetly come in. These Berlin-based startups make software that helps companies monitor, report and...
More than 50 countries around the world have pledged to become net zero. But what does net zero actually mean—and is it achievable?

You've probably been hearing a lot about climate change and how you should reduce your carbon footprint. But what's that exactly? Just like an actual footprint, it's a mark you leave upon the environment. No, not with your shoes but with every action that releases "Carbons". Those are the harmful gases, such as Co2, which are pumped out by burning fossil fuels, like oil or gas. And the more fuel is used, the bigger your footprint will be. You may think that by driving your car, the only carbons you release come from the engine, but no. Consider the carbons that are emitted just to get fuel into the tank: From the energy needed to extract the oil from underground, the pollution caused by transportation and refinement, to the final delivery to your local petrol station. Not to mention the Co...
Oil nation Norway plans to help fight climate change by capturing and storing Europe’s carbon emissions. The ‘Northern Lights’ project will store captured CO2 emissions in the North Sea. But this procedure is not without risks. The world is facing a climate catastrophe, and despite rapid growth in renewable energy production, some industries continue to emit vast amounts of CO2 during production processes. Two of these industries are cement and steel, both crucial for the economy. A solution is needed, and Norway believes part of the answer for Europe is carbon capture and storage (CCS). The country has called its CCS project ‘Northern Lights.’ The plan is to capture CO2 emitted from industrial sites, liquefy it, and then transport the liquefied gas via pipelines to be stored in the Nort...
This video shows the Top 20 countries by the total annual carbon dioxide emission (CO2 emission) from 1960 to 2017. United States contributed to almost 1/3 of the entire world's CO2 emissions in the 1960s but China and India started catching up in the early 2000.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) chief said in an interview with Xinhua that China greatly contributes to reducing global carbon dioxide emissions by playing the important role of being "the leader of clean energy technology globally." #GLOBALink
