- Fri May 17, 2019 - PRODUCTION & DISTRIBUTION OF RECOVERED CARBON BLACK (rCB) NOW EXCEEDS 100,000 MT
Vancouver, British Columbia -- Klean Industries Inc (\'Klean\') is pleased to announce that Klean's recovered Carbon Black (rCB) technology has reached a significant milestone in annual production and distribution of recovered Carbon Black which is now exceeding 100,000 metric tonnes annually. Klean is an industry leader in plant design and equipment manufacturing for the resource recovery and energy from waste sector. A key specialization technology of the Company, is its intellectual property and know-how for the processing of scrap tyres that transforms the waste tires into high quality, valuable raw materials primarily recovered Carbon Black, Oil and Steel.
Klean's tyre char upgrading systems enable the economic conversion of low-value tire char into high-value Carbon Black replacements which can replace virgin Carbon Black by volumes of 10% up to 100% depending on the applications. The Klean Team targets customers who demand superior quality and environmental sustainability for r

When ice failed to cover much of the eastern Bering Sea between Alaska and Russia in early 2018, oceanographer James Overland chalked it up to a freak chance. Then, it happened again this year, with late-winter sea ice falling to some of the lowest levels seen in at least 4 decades.
Now, scientists are studying whether this is the meteorological equivalent of drawing the ace of spades twice in a row, or another sign of the systemic changes sweeping the Arctic as a result of climate change. \'I'm not ruling out that we really have a new regime over the Bering Sea,\' says Overland, who works at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA's) Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL) in Seattle, Washington.
A lasting shift could dramatically transform a region with some of the nation's most valuable fisheries and indigenous communities whose way of life relies on ice. Already scientists have documented changes in algae as well as zooplankton, fish, and seabird popu
- Thu May 16, 2019 - The next 'South China Sea' is covered in ice
In a perfect world, the Arctic Council would meet around a massive spruce table in a castle of ice. It would include Erik the Red, Superman, several Inuit elders, Justin Trudeau, and Magnus Byrnison, King of the Polar Bears, and they would discuss villainous threats to the North. In fact, it is just another committee meeting for diplomats, and at the most recent meeting, Trudeau wasn't even there.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo did attend the meeting, held last week in Finland. (Finland actually has an ice castle, but it was not used.) It was a strange event: Pompeo gave an ominous speech that made frequent reference to the effects of climate change, even as the U.S. delegation refused to recognize that it exists. The disjuncture pointed to the larger failure of American policy in the Arctic: a U.S.-border region in upheaval, both ecologically and strategically, that the government can't quite ever focus on.
And Pompeo only underlined that stance when he said that the United Stat
- Thu May 16, 2019 - VW will make its own batteries to power an electric future
Four years after getting caught cheating emissions standards with millions of diesel-powered cars, Volkswagen has become the most (outwardly, at least) zealous of converts to an electric future. By 2028, it intends to offer 70 battery-powered models. To make that happen, it's retooling 16 factories to build electric cars. It's pushing suppliers to ramp up battery production and has already locked in battery supplies for 15 million vehicles, CEO Herbert Diess told Automotive News late last year---a huge number even for a company that builds 10 million cars annually. But the conversion hasn't been entirely smooth. Last month, reports surfaced that VW luxury arm Audi will build 10,000 fewer electric E-tron SUVs than expected, because of a battery shortage.
Now, Volkswagen is taking some of the battery building burden in-house. It will spend nearly €1 billion ($1.12 billion) to build a production plant near its German headquarters, working with an unnamed partner, it announced Monday. W

A choppy half-hour boat ride from the mainland lies a narrow, ribbon-like island ringed with granular coral sand beaches. In the distance, the azure sky seems to meld with the cobalt waters. Along the beach, the gently lapping waves and shallows are tinged brown with native seagrass.
It's an idyllic setting. But the island's real draw lies hidden beneath the waves.
Under the clear, calm water, large outcroppings of chocolate-colored elkhorn and staghorn coral are entangled in a pastel wash of coral fans and sponges. Queen triggerfish, with tails like neon-blue sickles and pointed, skeptical faces, mingle with schools of yellow-tailed, horse-eye jacks. Occasionally a marine giant such as a spotted eagle ray or loggerhead turtle swims by. It's a tranquil, otherworldly scene, like an Impressionist painting brought to life.
A decade or two ago, this scene would have been impossible. Tiny Belize had a massive problem.
Battering hurricanes, rampant oil exploration, and unchecked

The Trump administration recently held an event in Louisiana to announce its weakening of offshore drilling safety rules created after the Deepwater Horizon disaster. The announcement was greeted by applause from the fossil fuel industry.
The Trump administration long ago hitched its wagon to the fossil fuel energy of the past, and it continues to heedlessly promote fossil fuel extraction as the core of its so-called \'energy dominance\' agenda. But the science of climate change is directly at odds with this approach. Burning fossil fuels for energy leads to climate change, which inflicts mounting damages to the economy, environment, and public health.
Fortunately, prioritizing fossil fuel revenue over all other factors does not meet the requirements of existing federal laws. In recent months, advocates have successfully convinced courts to strike down nearly all of the administration's policy changes with respect to natural resource extraction and public lands, preserving critical
- Wed May 15, 2019 - It was 84 degrees in Northern Russia this weekend
Scattered clouds gave the sunlight a dreamy quality. Still, it got caught in the ripples of the sluggish river, giving it a slight shimmer as it flowed through the city. The mercury cracked 84 degrees Fahrenheit.
Basically the same scenes played out 5,400 miles apart, but while it was just another May day in New Orleans along the banks of the Mississippi River, it was part of a freakish heat wave in Arkhangelsk, a western Russian outpost located on the Northern Dvina River. It was part of a swath of heat that gripped the surrounding region, sending temperatures from just 128 miles south of the Arctic circle all the way to near the Kazakstan border spiraling up to 40 degrees Fahrenheit above normal for this time of year.
As Capital Weather Gang notes, the big heat wave comes on the same weekend atmospheric carbon dioxide levels reached heights unseen in human history. While they're separate data points, they both speak to a world whose climate is unraveling.

Everyone from governments to oil companies is looking at tree-planting as a way to counter global warming, but this strategy could be less effective than we thought.
In a warming world with growing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, researchers have hypothesised that trees will grow faster. But this isn't necessarily a good thing. Faster-growing trees may live shorter lives, reducing the amount of time they lock carbon away for.
Now data is beginning to suggest that this is the case. Ulf Büntgen of the University of Cambridge and his colleagues have looked at tree ring records going back 2,000 years, and found that the longest-lived trees were those with the slowest growth rates.
\'We find that if a tree grows fast in its initial stage, there is a high probability that it will die younger,\' he says.
The team studied 1800 trees, all of which were mountain pines from the Spanish Pyrenees or Siberian larch from the Russian Altai region, which can live up to about 800 y

Plastic is polluting oceans, freshwater lakes and rivers, food and us --- but it's also a major contributor to global climate change, warns a new report.
Scientists, policymakers and consumers are increasingly aware of the threat plastic pollution poses to oceans and water, wildlife, food and people. However, often lost in calculating plastics' environmental harm is its contributions to climate change.
\'I don't feel the petrochemical buildout is being considered as part of climate change discussions at any level in our state [Pennsylvania],\' Michele Fetting, program manager at the Breathe Project, a coalition of 24 environmental organizations, told EHN.
Petrochemical facilities, such as cracker plants, take fuels like natural gas and convert them to chemical products, which are most often used to make plastics. Shell is building a massive petrochemical complex in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, as part of a broader effort to put such facilities in multiple spots along the Ohio Ri
- Tue May 14, 2019 - On climate, does Trudeau's Canada play hero or villain?
How does Canada rate in fighting climate change?
Better than most countries, especially ones where fossil fuels drive politics.
Terribly for the world, because if every country copied Canada, that would ensure climate catastrophe.
That's the complicated picture climate policy experts in Canada and abroad shared with The Tyee.
They said Canada, while still far from where it needs to be in lowering its greenhouse gas emissions, is enacting \'courageous\' and \'interesting\' policies that are pushing global progress forward at a time when the opportunity for action is rapidly fading.
On the surface this doesn't seem to make much sense, given that under Trudeau's Liberal government Canada is set to miss the 2030 climate targets it agreed to at Paris, spends billions of dollars propping up the oil and gas industry (despite promising to end fossil fuel subsidies), and last year nationalized Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain pipeline for $4.5 billion.
