Oil Sands Alliance to focus on industry sustainability, advancing net-zero ambitions

"...Reid described the level of collaboration between oilsands producers right now as “unprecedented. ” Through the Oil Sands Pathways to Net Zero initiative — announced last year by the same companies that make up the new Oil Sands Alliance (as well as MEG Energy Inc. , which is not involved in the new group) — major industry players have publicly pledged to work together to reach the goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050..."

Oil Sands Alliance to focus on energy industry sustainability, advancing net zero ambitions Globalnews.ca

"...Through the Oil Sands Pathways to Net Zero initiative — announced last year by the same companies that make up the new Oil Sands Alliance (as well as MEG Energy Inc. , which is not involved in the new group) —  major industry players have publicly pledged to work together to reach the goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The industry's vision of getting to that goal is anchored by a proposed major carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) transportation line that would capture CO2 from oilsands facilities and transport it to a storage facility near Cold Lake, Alta..."

Canada is leaving communities in the dark about the risks and costs of climate disasters The Narwhal

"...As the climate warms, Canada is at growing risk from a range of hazards from extreme temperatures to drought, flooding, landslides, wildfires and more. While reducing greenhouse gas emissions can stave off the worst effects of climate change, some degree of further warming is already baked in and is expected to bring with it more extreme events..."

NASA predicts more extreme weather events but ‘we can stop making it worse'

"...In a virtual briefing Thursday, climate researchers from NASA said that over the past five years, there has been “no shortage of extremes” and they predict that more extreme heatwaves, intense rainfall, and more coastal floodings will continue. According to NASA's annual Global Climate Report published Thursday, Canada and the rest of North America had their seventh warmest year on record in 2021 with a temperature that was 1. 40 C (2..."

Ramping up the green industrial wave Corporate Knights

"...The high energy intensity combined with the reliance on combustion-based production technologies makes the heavy industries among the most greenhouse gas intensive, as measured by tonnes of greenhouse gas per dollar of GDP. The relatively large contribution of fuel and electricity to the total cost of production in these industries provides a strong incentive to improve technological energy efficiency, to look for process innovations that require less energy, and to pursue production strategies that increase the economic value created for every unit of fuel burned. Notwithstanding the slow growth in the heavy industry sector, greenhouse gas intensities have been stable or declining in the cement, chemicals and non-ferrous metals industries..."

Amid Energy Crisis, EU Fights Over Whether Nuclear Is Green

"...On New Year’s Eve, the European Commission presented the 27 EU member states with a draft regulation designating natural gas and nuclear power as “green” fuels for electricity generation. The draft includes nuclear because it produces virtually no emissions and gas because it is seen as a relatively clean transition fuel that will help the EU phase out much dirtier coal. If the European Parliament and member states approve, nuclear and gas will join renewable sources such as wind and solar energy on a list of technologies approved for private investment and EU financial support beginning in 2023..."

Cheap, common kitty litter clay captures methane from the air

"...Carbon dioxide may hog the headlines as a climate change villain, but methane is actually a far more potent greenhouse gas. An MIT team has now demonstrated a new way to remove methane from the air, even at very low concentrations, with a common type of clay used to make cat litter. Methane is emitted in large quantities from agriculture, coal mining, melting permafrost, and as a by-product of natural gas processing and transport..."

Brazil: Deforestation Jumps In World’s Largest Savanna As Scientists Raise Alarm

"...To take into account the United Nations' concerns on Brazil's greenhouse emissions, Bolsonaro and other officials must listen to scientists such as Bustamante. For mitigation to successfully occur, there needs to be full government support.  The rapid deforestation of the Cerrado has had a disastrous impact on Brazil’s environment, but it is also a global issue..."
