Is Big Oil finally getting stranded?

13:22 | Thanks to Russia and Saudi Arabia, global oil production has not decreased in reaction to the abrupt halt in our economies. Is this a ‘Perfect Storm’ that spells the end for BIG OIL?

Carbon Negative : Can we get there?

Carbon Negative : Can we get there?

18:18 | Carbon Negative is the bigger braver sibling of Carbon Neutral. But with coal still generating 40% of the world’s electricity, and 98% of the world’s vehicles still running internal combustion engines, how will we achieve the goal?

Galactic Cosmic Rays. Climate Changers?

Galactic Cosmic Rays. Climate Changers?

13:52 | Some think Cosmic Rays affect our climate and that the Grand Solar Minimum we’re now entering might mean this effect will increase. This week we take a look at the science involved.

New Carbon Dioxide Battery Solutions

New Carbon Dioxide Battery Solutions

11:50 | UIC has proved that a Lithium Carbon Dioxide battery can hold far more energy than a traditional battery. MIT has shown us a system that significantly improves the efficiency of capturing pure CO2 from ambient air streams.

Google and the Megacity Climate Heroes

Google and the Megacity Climate Heroes

17:15 | Our governments are failing us on Climate Change mitigation, and our own individual efforts can seem pointless. But our City Mayors, with help from Google’s Environmental Insights Explorer, are fighting back.

Chasing Methane : Big Brother is watching!

Chasing Methane : Big Brother is watching!

12:10 | Methane bubbling out of the arctic, accelerating the amplification of temperature rises in that region, plus a billion or so belching cows around the world spewing out millions of tons of CH4 every year. Are these the only culprits for increased methane?

How much water is in my steak?!?

13:32 | Water is not something you expect to ooze out of your nice juicy rare rib eye. But the amount of water that goes into producing that slab of beef may surprise you.

Regenerative Agriculture – Part 2

Regenerative Agriculture – Part 2

11:23 | Regenerative Agriculture has been around for a very long time. The trouble is it’s just not the way most modern farming techniques are taught or practiced.

Nuclear Energy in the 21st Century

Nuclear Energy in the 21st Century

15:15 | Nuclear energy has been a source of somewhat emotive debate since its discovery in the 1930’s. We take a look at the current status of the global Nuclear Energy industry and the role it may play in the fast approaching energy transition.

Grand Solar Minimum is coming. And..?

Grand Solar Minimum is coming. And..?

16:26 | Our sun is reaching the end of it’s normal 11 year cycle and is now approaching a period of minimum solar activity. Some say it’s the real cause of climate change and that it’s going to wreak havoc with our weather systems.
