- Thu Mar 21, 2019 - RECOVERED CARBON BLACK RCB & TIRE PYROLYSIS EXPERT SPEAKS AT ETRA CONFERENCE
Vancouver, British Columbia -- Klean Industries Inc. (\'Klean\') a leading manufacturer of advanced thermal processing technologies that designs and builds plants and equipment that utilize processes known as gasification, pyrolysis and carbonization to thermally convert waste into valuable commodities is pleased to announce that it's CEO, Mr. Jesse Klinkhamer will be a featured speaker at the European Tyre Recycling Conference (\'ETRA\') on March 22nd, 2019 in Brussels, Belgium.
The world is currently facing significant environmental challenges based on the massive population growth of the 21st century. Energy and commodity (raw materials) costs are rising along with the volume of waste and pollution being produced globally. Solutions to problems related to waste and energy are becoming more pressing for every developed and developing economies around the world.
Managing waste properly is essential for building sustainable and livable cities, but it remains a challenge for many deve
- Thu Mar 21, 2019 - Trump mocks wind power
President Trump on Wednesday mocked the idea of fostering wind power, suggesting that it would devalue property and undermine U.S. output of other energy forms.
Trump touted at an event in Ohio that the U.S. was the largest producer of crude oil and natural gas in the world. He suggested that would not have been the case had Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election.
\'Hillary wanted to put windmills all over the place,\' he told workers at a tank factory in Lima, Ohio.
Trump then mimicked a man telling his spouse to \'turn off the television\' when the wind doesn't blow in order to save electricity. The joke was reminiscent of a similar line he delivered earlier this month at the Conservative Political Action Conference in which derided the Green New Deal.
\'Put the windmills up, and watch the value of your house if you're in sight of a windmill --- watch the value of your house go down by 65 percent,\' he said Wednesday. \'Wonderful to have windmills. And solar's wonderful too, but

Yesterday, the Nathaniel B. Palmer left Antarctica behind and made the turn toward home. The last science experiments were completed, and the ship headed north, toward Punta Arenas, Chile, where our two-month journey will end. Scientists on board are packing up equipment and writing rough drafts of papers based on discoveries they made during our adventure into uncharted waters around Thwaites glacier. But an almost existential question looms above it all: Did we just witness what amounts to a climate catastrophe playing out in real time?
On March 3rd, Bastien Queste, an oceanographer at the University of East Anglia who is a key member of the science team aboard the ship, got a WhatsApp message from a colleague back in the UK. She had sent him a satellite image of Thwaites glacier and the surrounding region in West Antarctica. At the time, we had just completed our own close encounter with the awesome craggy blue glacier and were only a few miles away, mapping the seabed in front o
- Thu Mar 21, 2019 - The seductive stupidity of Andrew Wheeler
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler is not your average climate denier. Unlike President Donald Trump, he's admitted that global warming is real and caused by humans. And unlike many Republicans in the House and Senate, he's admitted that its effects will be dangerous if warming continues unabated.
But when it comes to admitting that swift, aggressive action is necessary to slow the dangers of climate change, Wheeler is just like most Republicans: He denies it. In an interview with \'CBS This Morning\' on Wednesday, the former coal industry lobbyist said that global warming is simply too vague and distant a threat to focus on.
\'On the climate change issue, it is an important issue that we have to be addressing and we are addressing it,\' Wheeler said. \'But most of the threats from climate change are 50 to 75 years out.\' Instead of climate change, Wheeler argued that the EPA's efforts would be better spent focusing on cleaning up water in other countries. \'We
- Thu Mar 21, 2019 - The fight to tame a swelling river with dams outmatched by climate change
There were no good choices for John Remus, yet he had to choose.
Should he try to hold back the surging Missouri River but risk destroying a major dam, potentially releasing a 45-foot wall of water? Or should he relieve the pressure by opening the spillway, purposefully adding to the flooding of towns, homes and farmland for hundreds of miles.
Mr. Remus controls an extraordinary machine --- the dams built decades ago to tame a river system that drains parts of 10 states and two Canadian provinces. But it was designed for a different era, a time before climate change and the extreme weather it can bring.
\'It's human nature to think we are masters of our environment, the lords of creation,\' said Mr. Remus, who works for the United States Army Corps of Engineers. But there are limits, he said. And the storm last week that caused him so much trouble was beyond what his network of dams can control.
\'It was not designed to handle this,\' he said.
The storm, the \'bomb cyclone\' t
- Wed Mar 20, 2019 - Mysterious Pacific Ocean 'blob' may have harmed Hawaii humpbacks
Just a few years ago, it looked as if humpback whale populations in the Pacific Ocean were booming.
Receding sea ice due to climate change---though bad for polar bears and other wildlife---had lengthened the summer foraging season for hungry whales, and the U.S. government decided that certain populations had recovered enough to be taken off the endangered species list.
But then the warming got out of hand.
Starting in late 2013, a persistent mass of unusually warm ocean water, nicknamed \'the blob,\' appeared in the Gulf of Alaska and slowly spread south along North America's Pacific Coast. In its wake followed a few other anomalies, including El Niño.
The mysterious blob persisted for six years, raising sea surface temperatures in some places by more than three degrees Celsius and killing off populations of krill and other animals that round out the humpback diet.
As a result, fewer humpback mothers made their 3,000-mile annual summer migration from Alaska to Hawaii to
- Wed Mar 20, 2019 - Banks pumped $1.9 trillion into fossil fuels since 2016
After the Paris climate agreement in late 2015, J.P. Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon spoke publicly in support of the agreement, which calls for finance flows to be \'consistent with a pathway toward low greenhouse gas emissions.\' But despite his rhetoric, between 2016 and 2018 his bank ramped up funding for fossil fuels, pouring $196 billion into financing coal, Arctic oil and gas, fracking, tar sands, and other fossil fuel projects. If you bank at Chase, your money might have helped fund drilling in the Amazon rainforest.
In total, according to a new report from a group of environmental nonprofits, the 33 largest global banks collectively provided $1.9 trillion in financing for fossil fuels. Of that, $600 billion went to 100 companies that are aggressively expanding fossil fuel projects at a time when climate scientists say that the world needs to rapidly transition to renewable energy.
\'That expansion figure is particularly worrying for us,\' says Alison Kirsch, lead researcher for
- Wed Mar 20, 2019 - People now paying for sick world
Humanity has made the planet sick, unleashing climate change, stripping forests, causing mass extinctions of wildlife and polluting air and waterways while the earth buckles under the strain of a population surging towards the 10 billion mark.
This is the warning contained in the sixth Global Environment Outlook, the most comprehensive report of its kind, released in Nairobi, Kenya, this week by the UN Environment Programme.
The 745-page report offers a grim assessment of the planet's ill health - but remarkably, it also provides some hope for the future.
\'GEO-6 is an essential check-up for our planet,\' writes UN secretary-general António Guterres. \'Like any good medical examination, there is a clear prognosis of what will happen if we continue with business as usual and a set of recommended actions to put things right.\'
The theme, \'Healthy Planet, Healthy People\', highlights the \'inextricable link between the environment and our survival and progress\'.
Yet the challenge
- Wed Mar 20, 2019 - Africa is running out of water as cities see populations boom
As water supplies in Ghana's capital grew increasingly erratic, Beatrice Kabuki stopped customers from using her grocery store's bathrooms and installed a plastic storage tank at her home.
\'The taps flow once a week and usually at night, so we stay awake to fetch what we can store,\' Kabuki, 35, said in an interview in Accra. \'We mostly augment by buying water from tankers.\'
Cities and towns in several other African nations including Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Ivory Coast have been plagued by similar water shortages in recent months, manifestations of a global supply squeeze brought on by drought, population growth, urbanization and insufficient investment in dams and other infrastructure.
Water use has risen about 1 percent a year since the 1980s and more than 2 billion people now live in countries experiencing high water stress, the United Nations said in its World Water Development Report released in Geneva on Tuesday. It projects demand will grow as much as 30 percent by 2050
- Tue Mar 19, 2019 - B.C. argues it cannot stop Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, but it can protect environment
British Columbia is not trying to stop the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, but it is attempting to prevent environmental damage and hold the corporation responsible for the cleanup of a spill, a lawyer argued Monday.
The province's Court of Appeal is considering a reference case filed by B.C. that asks if it has jurisdiction to regulate the transport of oil through its territory and restrict bitumen shipments from Alberta.
Joseph Arvay, who represents B.C., said the province has no \'axe to grind\' against pipelines and proposed amendments to its Environmental Management Act are not aimed at blocking the project.
\'The purpose was never to prevent the construction or operation of the pipeline. The purpose and effect was always to protect the environment,\' he told a panel of five judges.
The case asks the court to rule on the constitutional validity of the proposed amendments, which would require companies transporting hazardous substances through B.C. to obtain provincial p
