A Dutch Group May Have a Way to Cut Carbon Emissions

"Un estimates that twenty percent of global carbon emissions come from residential buildings. A dutch organization thinks it might have found a way to drastically cut that number.

Major Climate Changes Inevitable and Irreversible – IPCC’s Starkest Warning Yet

"Climate change has been top of the agenda recently as the latest ipcc. Report came out earlier. This month the intergovernmental panel on climate change produces one of these reports every six to seven years to summarize the fourteen thousand scientific papers that have been published on historic climate models global warming and its implications on the planet and the findings of this report are clear. Humans are responsible for the planet warming at a rate that is unprecedented in at least the last two thousand years this warming is driven by increased greenhouse gas emissions of which co. Two and. Methane are the major contributors. This is already leading to hotter heat. Waves wetter monsoons more frequent droughts and the oceans warming at their fastest rate since the end of the last full ice age. Some of the impacts us. Humans have had on the planet on now irreversible. We are going to warm. The planet by one point five degrees c more than pre industrial levels. No matter what we do now sea levels are going to rise by several meters over the next two thousand years the ice sheets will continue to melt and the oceans will become more and more acidic. But please don't switch off just yet. I promise this show is not all doom and gloom and i know all too well how listening to the facts about climate change can make you feel like the world is very literally on fire and there is nothing we can do. So what is the point in even trying well. The science is clear on that too. There is hope if we can reduce our global carbon emissions to net zero by twenty fifty. The planet will quickly stop warming. And if we start absorbing more carbon than we produce it'll even start cooling down again and those extreme weather events will become less extreme again

"Lauren in our episode last week you told us about facebook how the company has built its headquarters on the waterfront and at sea levels rise it and the cities around it will need to build defences to keep the water back and the big question in that story was was a fair amount for facebook to pay for those defenses. And today we're talking about whether buildings should happen at all in areas vulnerable to climate change. And it's a story that involves another tech giant google. Yes and for google. The situation is a little different. And i should say google is among npr's financial supporters. Yep disclosure Yeah they recently bought a lot of property in sunnyvale with plans to build a major expansion on it. it's actually more than seventy properties close to the shoreline worth almost three billion dollars. Whoa okay that's a lot and what's there now. Yeah this neighborhood. It's known as moffett park. It's really an office park right now. There's lots of these low rise office buildings with lots of big parking. Lots what google wants to build is different. It'll be offices of course but also housing which isn't in moffett park right now and it's it's not for employees necessarily. It'll be on the market for anyone. They're also envisioning green spaces and bike paths basically walkable neighborhoods. That's the direction. A lot of cities are going in. Right yeah. I mean getting people out of their cars and moving away from the suburban model. Yeah and changing. Our land use is a key strategy for dealing with climate change and cutting carbon emissions but climate change is also a problem for this neighborhood because sea levels are rising and rising increasingly. Fast right okay. So how soon will that encroaching water be a problem fairly quickly. I mean there's already been about eight inches of sea level rise over the last century. By mid century san francisco bay could see about a foot to two feet and by the end of the century. It could be as much as seven feet. If humans don't substantially cut emissions so basically every high tide is getting higher and the risk of flooding is greater if there's a storm or wins that create bigger

Us organized nationals state by state. Oh well it's it's a disaster honest basically. There's three grids in the us. There is the eastern grid which kind of runs to the middle of the country. There's the westerner connect and then there's texas and we are just going to set x aside. So here's the thing. All the grids within those big interconnections like talk to each other and are connected so you could move electricity from like connecticut to new york to new jersey even though those are kind of like three different local grids. Yeah but like. You can't move electricity super easily from oklahoma to new jersey. The dream of a national grid is that you build those across the country so that we have like basically like an electricity interstate highway system linking the whole country. What is so bad about the current situation. I mean what would actually be so much better if everything were fixed and perfect like i dunno with power bills be like a quarter as expensive. Would they be like a couple of bucks. Plus would it be like our carbon emissions would go down by eighty percent. I mean what are the stakes here. The stakes here. I think are really two fold. The first is gonna need transmission to solve climate change. We just need it. that is blowing. My mind is not that big of a deal transmission. It's really so. It's a huge deal to fight. Climate change right. We need to build as much low-carbon electricity generation as possible right as many renewables and so it is just true that we have a power system that right now. Basically relies on kind of power plants to generate electricity. A lot of the time and we're moving to a power system where we have to be kind of more entrepreneurial about where electricity is flowing from anyone moment

And as broadly as the massive development degrading our air water and climate china has one point four billion people a steel fast growing economy and is responsible for the biggest share of the current greenhouse gas emission. china knows it's global responsibility and has pledged to be carbon neutral by twenty sixty. It means more than ten billion metric. Tons of carbon emission must be stopped abi neutralized. How can we possibly do it. The pressing global climate situation requires each of us. Not just to do it but to do it faster. I believe there's a chance for us to succeed. As i know a tool that i've work to help reduce the enormous environmental pollution. It is the power of transparency. Pollution information made public using mobile internet and other. It technologies many empowers millions of citizens to speed.

"See. Thanks for joining today. Can you start a softest with a very very high level. Overview of china's emission reduction target china's president xi jinping after announced a net zero carbon your targets in september so the goal is to have china rich carbon peak by twenty thirty and to recover neutral by twenty sixty so what it translate into the road transport sector is well although there is no specific targets that for particular sector pains I turn that the country. The central government wants all sectors in in the country to essentially to decarbonise and the pathway for different for different sectors. You is paris a lot so they wanna hit their peak of emissions. What'd you say. Twenty thirty twenty thirty twenty thirty and then start coming down to zero by twenty sixty thirty years to come down the mountain. I guess today we're going to focus mostly on evt's or electric vehicles and a policy. That's come into play to try to get those sales up and therefore get the emissions down from the transportation sector. Can you explain to us. Just the well start us off with the name of the policy and a bit about its objectives. They use policy toys. After new energy vehicle mandate so new under be a cold is kind of china's definition electric vehicle plug in hybrid infused l. vehicles so the mandate is very similar to california zero emission vehicle or theft mandate and eight requires automakers to sell electric vehicles in order to produce nab credit.

Japan subsidiary introduced the podiums on which athletes will get their medals. The tokyo atlanta twenty podiums are made for use plastic packages directly collected by consumers and then recycled even the gold silver and bronze part of the symbolism. They'll be extracted from recycled cell phones and other gadgets to make the athletes medals but some analysts say the symbolism of sustainability exaggerates the reality unfortunately the data show that stability in all dimensions is decreasing over time from nineteen ninety. Two to twenty twenty. That's fan daniel wolf. At the university of lausanne switzerland he co authored. A study of the sustainability of recent olympic games wolf define sustainable as having limited ecological impact promoting social justice and being economically efficient. These goals he says tend to take a back seat to the ambition to put on dazzling mega events but wolf and some environmental groups. Do give olympic organizers credit for at least trying. Monaco konishi is the climate and energy project leader at wwf japan. She praises the games energy plan. So the extra electricity that is required for the tokyo olympic will be one hundred percent renewable energy and that could be a very good role model for the future olympics. The games will of course still produce carbon emissions. But she says the organizers have already secured more than enough carbon credits to try to offset the greenhouse gases. The games

Creating Sustainable Practices for Marathons and Road Races

"Back to that flight. That you're taking for your race. Here's a little context. The average american is responsible through their household activities and consumption for about fifteen metric tons for thirty three kilograms of carbon emissions annually. Globally that number drops by two-thirds to just about ten thousand kilograms on average per year per person. So that gives you a sense of how our lifestyles here. In the developed west correlate to the amount of environmental harm that we 'cause compared to most other people in the world so one long-haul round trip flight say los angeles new york or new york. London causes about two thousand kilograms per person per flight. And that single week or we can. Trip is now responsible for about six percent of your total years worth of climate impact if you're tracking with the average if you take four flights on average per year now that's about twenty five percent of your entire footprint with just that active flying in it's about eighty percent of the total years worth of impact if you're tracking with the global per capita average so flying is a privilege and it's a luxury and just because we love it and because it's come quite commonplace Doesn't make it any less. So and driving to events is quite a bit less carbon intensive than flying so then it would start to depend on how far you go and how often you go in your car So what can be done races. Are they're precious motivation. And they are incomparable experiences. We want races and we're not willing to give them up nor should we at the council for responsible sport. We are strongly. Advocating to event organizers for the normalization of a point of registration carbon offset option. So that's where we're saying. Runner should be given the choice to opt in to pay a few dollars into a fund that will be used to invest in a project that captures stores or reduces climate changing emissions elsewhere. So for concerned individual. The hard truth is that it does mean becoming more and more choosy and considerate. About how often do you utilize air travel and offsetting emissions when you do so the takeaway is email or post on your race. Facebook page asking not if but when the carbon offset option will be incorporated into the registration process. I happen to know that the trail renting community is getting on top of this and there's actually movement to have trail running be climate positive sports so carbon-neutral within the decade.

The reports suggest ending investments in new coal mines, oil and gas wells as part of an overall reshaping of the global energy sector in order to meet ambitious carbon emissions reduction goals. Paris based agency has determined there is a narrow but viable pathway for building a global energy sector with net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Several countries, including the U. S and the European Union, have pledged to achieve net zero emissions by mid century. The IAEA report laid out 400 steps needed to transform L energies produced, transported and used, including seizing investments in new fossil fuel supply projects and ended the sale of internal combustion engine cars by 2035.

He was wearing his uniform in a stab vest and he had a canister of pepper spray and we started chatting about how crime had soared violent attacks on the L. and robberies and so on have doubled in the last three or four years. I've been assaulted myself. Trance grants and he told me that the is getting worse. He said you can't even ask why anymore. Waivers to the point where even I don't want anyone they were just an and whereabouts. Are you on the red line at this point so this point moving through central Chicago still underground and we're going through this remain torres downtown area of Chicago. It's busy and then me pass Roosevelt station. And at that point we leave the underground move outside and we've become begin to see the neighborhoods as as we pass by so fairly soon you see the brick pagoda roofs of Chinatown than we see the White Sox Baseball Stadium and increase neither a warehouses former factories arteries former industrial zones. We start to feel the city. Changing as we move south the couches are entering out. There are men pacing through their whole King Ping packets of cigarettes green and white packets. Sixty nine is next and so was her. Where did you alight from the train? As you got further south so I got out towards the the southern end of the red line in Englewood on the left at sixty nine this is a world away from St Avail. Twenty minutes to the north a baby born in in this area could only expect to live to fifty nine point nine years and this is a much more crumbling. Rundown part of the city lots or abandoned the recruits of young men hanging around on stoops on porches of houses. With not much to do. It has a whole air of despair and neglect but a discrepancy of thirty years in life expectancy is enormous. Is that just a function of what sounds like fairly extreme differences in terms of affluence. Well I thought I would ask someone in Inglewood itself to try and give me an answer to this. I got back into a medical Mellon Essay Inglewood because a lot of bottles go to a resident of the area. He wears a yellow high vis vest because his job is to protect school children along streets that otherwise quite risky to walk low was tore down neighborhoods abandoned build. It is a drug infested gloves. You know these kids ain't got no half sister. And he said kids ten miles to the north of him simply. Don't have to deal with the realities tapis of shootings and gangs and guns. The kids in his neighborhood have to deal with every day. It's a way of life but you have to learn how van Yeah police counted one thousand six hundred vining crimes including fifty murders in Englewood and West Englewood in the past year. You're alone and that's a rate that's far worse than the rest of Chicago and a lot lot worse than in St of ill. So the gap in life expectancy than simply down violent crime time. Well that's the most obvious difference that you read about every day in the newspapers here but actually it's a lot more complicated than that. I spoke to Lorna thoughput. Nyu Langone Gone Health Medical Center affiliated with New York University and she was part of a team that produces the thirty year estimate it looks at public health and other data the four five hundred different American cities and break that down to very small census tracts and they looked at abusively rates binge drinking smoking childhood poverty where the people have health insurance. What are the reported rates of mental distress and they came up with a very wide range of factors that could be contributing to the difference in life expectancy but she brought it down to one factor in particular that she thought was the single best explanation of why for example Englewood is in such trouble and that is racial segregation? There's a very very clear. Correlation between low life expectancy and extreme dream racial segregation and. We know that Chicago is one of the most divided cities in America on racial lines. And if you want the most extreme gap on racial lines you could compare Englewood which is ninety five percent African American with passive strata Ville that adjust two percent african-american will why is Chicago so segregated. Then we'll Chicago has a very complicated history. But I spoke to another expert on this subject. A demographer Rob Powell. Who talked me through the differences between the whites northern and central districts of Chicago and the black dominated southern areas and he talked about the shifting fifteen of ghettos the shifting of public housing within Chicago? They used to be these big public housing blocks in the center of the city. They were demolished in the late twentieth century entry and the occupants by and large were displaced into places like Englewood. And if you now look at parts of the city like Englewood in the south people again a fleeing and the population there is now forty percents smaller today than it was in the year. Two thousand because people are fleeing violence and poverty in the rotten housing. I mean this sounds as if it's essentially two different worlds playing out two sets of parallel lives. I mean how much do the people of Englewood or st will know about what's going on ten miles away. The truth is if you're in part of Chicago like Lincoln Park Street Ville you need to have no understanding you have no consciousness. The the places like Englewood exist unless you seek it out unless you read about it close in the newspapers or get on that train line it might as well be on the other side of the country or on the other side at the planet despite being very very close to each other. The people. Just don't mingle. It's a very very divided city. Thank you very much for joining us. Adam.

That's really picked up my time meat for this episode and in my kind of area them with food sustainability the must be something that we can do eating seasonally. I mean do you have advice about that. Obviously in your book while the Human Planet do you discuss. Scott speeds sustainability so something that individuals can do is shift from normal U._K.. Or British Diet if you shift to Vegetarian Diet you have the carbon emissions missions from your diet which is fantastic now. If you can go even further and shift to a Vegan then you reduce it to a third of the emissions if you imagine the whole of this country could just shift to being vegetarian that will be a huge changing diet it would also change some of the dynamics because some of the meat production has huge implications for deforestation world and we could see that shift we also know and the doctors I love climate change. Because of course we know that that shift would change people's health. Let's try to fatten take down yeah of the overproduced me all of that fifty two more vegetarian diet in this country. The interesting thing is it's win win yeah. Because of course you make people healthier. Yep You save a huge amount in the national health service because in this country like most normal countries the biggest expenditure is <music> own human health so here we spend about ten percent G._D._p.. On health absolutely right but guess what you could save so much money if he will had more healthy diet even if you enforce it by say taxing sort of mighty me we'll be taxed. I think it has to be particularly. I think over produce and over highly processed meat with me I think if you change that and you shift onto sugar talks you can then shifted these diet well after the research that came out so we're in two thousand nineteen now in January with the lawn set that did raise big awareness about the planetary plate. I think it was called so I think one of the problems to approaching this dietary aspect is very all or nothing. Some people will have the attitude of I'm not giving up meat so one of the suggestions would be well. Let's try plant based Diet which means reduce your intake start with meat free Mondays. If you're listening named start with just cutting down slowly and you won't know to say it's if I think there's an extreme sudden just give it up overnight. People may reject reject that kind of concept but I agree with you completely that if we will automate dietary changes wow what the difference can we make. I also think it's about making the choices there. One of the biggest shifts in this country has occurred with nobody actually noticing lightbulbs. You cannot get old fashioned lightbulbs. They've been banned so when you go in you have a choice between good lightbulb lasting two years really good lightbulb. That's going to lose five years but they're all low energy low-carbon and therefore you can stick them in and you're doing the right thing without knowing had no idea if you exactly yeah but you haven't felt that you've been taken the choice away or you've been violated by the government therefore you could do this food. Yes same with cars if you shift to electric cars. You just make sure that electric cars are cheaper than the pitch one now of course if you're a petrol head and you want your fantastic b._m._w..

"Toward reducing carbon emissions has been slow improvements in new airplanes have reduced emissions significantly. But with more airplanes flying more people overall tonnage of carbon emitted by commercial aviation has been inching higher. Not lower in recent years. The latest from Wall Street Journal travel writer, Scott McCartney who looked at how green the airlines are Scott. What did you find? Problem for them a problem to the environment. But the reality is they. They are getting somewhat greener because of more fuel-efficient claims it's improvements that basically all come from the manufacturers replacing older planes with with newer planes. And. The reality is those games are being equipped by the growth that we've seen so they're more planes flying more more people flying and the bottom line is emissions are growing growing, slowly, but growing in in the last few years rather than trinket do airlines feel an obligation to address this. Yeah, they do. And they and they feel pressured to address it. You know, they're they're worried that they're going to get hit with a with some kind of green tax or there that there would be restrictions on the number of planes that would be allowed to fly on this. It's been more of an issue in Europe than in the US. But the notion that, you know, you have a lot of airlines running around offering people for like for ten euros or or whatever. And maybe that's not a great thing for the environment. And and maybe you shouldn't be flying. Donna win coup for the weekend or that kind of thing. So the airline industry has committed to three goals one short term goal of the fuel efficiency improvement, and that's from two thousand nine to two next year. They're gonna they're gonna meet that. Seat that some improvements have been about about two percent per year. And they put to get to one and a half percent. So they've done done well there, but obviously gross has been more than two percent. That's been the problem. They're they're pledging from beginning next year forward, the growth would be carbon neutral in other words emissions wouldn't increase, and they're only going to be able to do that by buying carbon offsets. And then the big the big. Tough one to get to is by twenty fifty. They've quite to actually reduce their emissions by fifty percent compared to two thousand and five. And and they really the only way to get. There is some new technology comes along that really makes a difference. They're they're trying to then trying to use biofuel trying to promote that as somewhat reduction that alone probably won't get them. Kevin taken off all kinds of issues with it. Mostly high cost the, you know, there aren't a whole lot of alternatives, and we all maybe paying more to fly for the offsets and and see fewer points in the future.

"We love that. All right story. Number two government. Get the out of my life. I have a great piece up at the show notes written by my resident the bunker and chief and researcher, Matt Palumbo, Gino dot com. Yeah. He does a good job. Matt loves debunking, liberal mess about the Paris climate accord's. Remember Trump pulled out of the Paris climate accord's, the apocalypse, the world was going to collapse the Arctic and Antarctic glaciers. We're gonna melt all the ones who is going to be like that Dennis Quaid movie, whereas son, Jake Chilin hall gets caught in the library in New York. And there's like an ice age that happens overnight and everybody's burning books to stay alive. Everything was going to pure catastrophe tornadoes in downtown New York City. It was going to be the climate catastrophe. Be crazy. The hyperbolic language was outrageous when Trump pulled out of the Paris climate accord, the Paris climate accords were non-binding, by the way. And essentially what they said is the countries that signed on were committing to a decrease in carbon emissions over a period of time. Those metrics based on, you know, you're Konami stage of development, but they were non binding. So Matt wrote this piece, basically, the bunking the fact that the apocalypse was going to happen. We pulled out of the climate, of course, and he writes in the peace, and he's right that even after we pulled out of the Paris climate. Of course, we're still beating all the other countries in the Paris climate, of course, because of our economic growth in the decrease in carbon emissions into the atmosphere. Now, they have gone up twenty eighteen around the world. But of all the countries around the world, we are doing the best job at cleaning up our entire and by the way, carbon dioxide is not a pollutant, by the way, anyway, which that's a nonsense fairytale told to you by the left, but the point is carbon dioxide and carbon emissions into the atmosphere are are generally improving in the United States because as economic conditions improved.

"Counter intuitively mike and the way of cutting carbon emissions yes sure serve it gets complicated very quickly but on the base level essentially wind and solar which of the two big commercially available renewable energy sources we have today discounting harder because as other issues like having enough water and things other all the big ones that we think we can expand dramatically across the grid and importantly is still get duck at night and so so definitely goes way everyday and wind also has these sign of cycles recalled them changes and all that collectively as quote are the very ability or intermittent see and so we have a structure of of how we use energy in the country we just have a a regular beat of drum of its fiveway days two days off the structures of the that's partly whether to them but also partly driven by a society and when you add these two things together at as a slight mismatch and so when you were low or shallow penetrations of renewables that mismatch can just be dealt with with the rest of the grid recongised organiz things together but as you push the higher and higher that mismatch becomes amplified and so we get is this what we call a divergence of matching the load and so you end up starting to waste energy and you will so they're not to build the backup generations to fill the gaps when it's not generating electricity and so as you go further down this care of what we find is the cost and the difficulty start to rise exponentially of becoming much more difficult and saraji push closer and closer to this high renewables stunned and closer ties to 100 percent we have less and less wiggle room which means the costco higher and higher and higher and higher at whereas zero emissions goal would be use old technologies we have to basically keep that curve level of flack contempt as the amount cost it takes to get rid of the extra ten of carbon in the epas.
