Schweiz: Gletscherinitiative – Klimaschutz in die Verfassung

Spread the love

Das Schwinden unserer Gletscher ist ein Weckruf! Gemeinsam müssen wir die Klimaerwärmung stoppen, sonst verschlechtert sich unsere Lebensgrundlage nachhaltig. Die Gletscher-Initiative fordert netto null Emissionen bis 2050. Sie will die Ziele des Pariser Klimaabkommens in der Verfassung verankern und die Schweiz auf Klimakurs bringen.

CCS CO2 trade

CO2 capture & storage proposals

Spread the love

There are already research funds from the EU for Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS). We need to remove Carbon from the atmosphere to implement the Paris targets. Some approaches are already available like biochar, algae growing, etc. but all need to be applied in giantic scales (or need to become that popular that they sum up significantly). What approaches do you know? Please post…

Fix CO2 trading the Soros way

Spread the love

One big issue is that CO2 pollution certificates (from the Kyoto protocol) are far too cheap. They do not reflect the cost of removing the excess CO2 from the atmosphere to get back into the “safe zone” beyond 350ppm (IPPC). If we know the price is way too low there should be an incentive to trade CO2 certificates long. We should also lobby governments participating in the CO2 trade not to release any more free certificates but start buying back those already issued.

Please comment ways to capture CO2 – and if available what the current cost (and a projected marginal cost) may be. Just to get a feeling about the direct cost of CO2 emissions (before accounting for cost of climate disruption) is.
