The 2050 Calculator allows users to create their own emissions reduction pathway, using scientific data to see the impacts. The Calculator is available in three versions to allow a range of audiences to explore how to best meet energy needs while reducing emissions: a simplified overview, a more detailed look at the issues, or a full Excel version for experts who want to look at the underpinning model.
While designed for the UK, the Energy Department there is now working with teams around the world to help them develop their own calculators, and is also building a Global Calculator to look at ways to reduce emissions worldwide.
These climate-focused civic engagement opportunities can be built into higher education curricula through a wide variety of course topics and academic areas.
This case study reports on the micro-credential framework being developed in order to create competency-based skills validation that can be more responsive to rapidly changing industry needs and cross-over skills required between allied industries. This will bring a new credentialing option to certified energy auditors in the U.S. who want to expand their home health assessment expertise and offer more comprehensive services in the residential sector.
Rio de Janeiro becomes a benchmark city from the southern hemisphere with this resilience strategy to protect its environment and people from the stresses of climate change. It encompasses sustainable water management, infrastructure improvements, an initiative to place solar panels on public buildings and an urban resilience curriculum to educate the people. Though designed specifically for Rio de Janeiro, the strategies outlined in this report can be adapted to other cities as well.
These plans detail the Defense Department’s goals to mitigate operational risks posed by climate change effects such as: flooding, surging sea levels, severe weather and extreme temperatures. Managing the unavoidable effects and preparing for the possible ones will reduce risks to our national security.
Busting the myths about the affordability of solar energy, this real-life example shows how policy can make solar energy affordable to all building owners, with utility bill savings paying for the solar. Georgia’s Solar Power Free-Market Financing Act of 2015 allows wide access to solar power as well as cost-effective implementation.
This series of articles and videos from National Geographic, featuring scientists from around the world, focus on three key issues regarding climate change:
1) How do we know it’s happening?
2) How do we fix it?
3) How do we live with it?
This article and accompanying short video will make for great classroom discussion and inspiration for academic hydroponic experiments. Aerofarms is planned to be the largest indoor vertical farm in the world. This farm supplies local grocery stores and restaurants healthy leafy greens without the use of sunlight or water. Focusing on nutrition and flavor, “there’s no need to tweak the DNA or add artificial chemicals, the company says, when you can create the ideal environment to promote certain traits in the plant.”
Thus far, over 80 major companies worldwide have joined RE100, committing to 100% renewable energy usage, and the number of participants is expected to keep growing. This commitment presents a clear business case for investing in cleaner energy pathways to accelerate the transition to a net-zero emissions economy. Investors and policymakers must respond to rising corporate demand and ensure that supportive policies are in place.
This article discusses innovative practices gardeners, farmers, governments and companies are adopting to protect wild pollinators and improve cultivation of commercial pollinators. At least 1/3 of the worlds food crops are produced with the help of natural pollinators such as bees, butterflies and birds, and without them agriculture biodiversity and food security would suffer.
