Clean Energy ( Solar Thermal Magazine ) – We consume a truly amazing amount of energy every single minute of the day. The global demand for energy is continuing to skyrocket as population increases and the middle class grows in developing countries. Producing this amount of energy has significant environmental impacts and emitting so much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere could cause catastrophic climate change. We are just starting to see the impact of this as the glaciers melt and the oceans warm.
In this video, three academics from Cambridge University look at wind power, carbon capture and storage (CCS) and material efficiency as examples of how we can cut our C02 emissions.
They suggest that we must act now in order to avoid the serious risks of man-made global warming, one of our greatest challenges in the 21st century.
