If you’ve browsed through our continuously updated documents, you’ll have appreciated their breadth of scope and their seriousness.

We have peer reviewed international references that are often overlooked in mainstream media and other climate sites.

We have documents that criticise things that haven’t worked, and since we’ve concentrated on science and tried to factor out ideology, some of our documents may seem controversial.

Industry is another of the major consumers of energy and thus subject to significant production of GHG. In developed countries, industry's use of energy is a measure of the economies performance, therefore means must be implemented to increase industrial energy efficiency as well as shift the energy's source to one that produces less GHG.

As detailed in the Climate Action Plan, President Obama is committed to using every appropriate tool to combat climate change. Nuclear power, which in 2014 generated about 60 percent of carbon-free electricity in the United States, continues to play a major role in efforts to reduce carbon emissions from the power sector. The continued development of new and advanced nuclear technologies along with support for currently operating nuclear power plants is an important component of our clean energy strategy. moreless

James Hansen, et.al. Assessment of impacts of global warming using ongoing observations and paleoclimate data. We use Earth’s measured energy imbalance, paleoclimate data, and simple representations of the global carbon cycle and temperature to define emission reductions needed to stabilise climate and avoid potentially disastrous impacts. moreless

US commitment to COP22. This document lays out a strategy to deeply decarbonize the U.S. economy by 2050. This document has been presented immediately after the US 2016 election results. At this point in time, little is known about the future of these very worthwhile commitments. moreless

In the next 30 years, we expect to see substantial change in energy systems as the lifetime of existing plants ends and new plants are built with the EPA goals in mind. Replacement systems will have to enter a new operational paradigm in which integrated industrial-scale systems might provide the optimum way forward. An interesting view of future energy systems architecture. Does not take into consideration in US political changes. moreless
