There are four extraordinary circumstances, all relating to California’s oil resources, that need to be factored into the case for preserving and strengthening California’s clean car program.
Calls for tighter limits on greenhouse gas emissions have put petroleum companies in the driver’s seat. It’s time for them to develop transparent systems based on standardized, verifiable climate plans.
You have to go to the source of the problem to solve a challenge as vast as the health of the world’s oceans. But government can’t do it alone.
Destructive and illegal fishing practices are resulting in more and bigger boats fishing for fewer and smaller fish.
In “America: The Farewell Tour,” Chris Hedges pens a manifesto for America’s anticapitalist left that is unrelieved in its negativism, bears striking similarities with right-wing populism, and offers few answers about how to move forward.
The idea that climate engineering provides a get-out-of-jail-free card is fraught with risk. More transparency is needed to help ensure it successfully addresses climate change
A successful switch to electric vehicles, coupled with strategically increased refining capacity, could be both a geoeconomic and geopolitical maneuver for India.
It was recently announced that the United States has just beaten its all-time high in crude oil production—but these claims don’t quite stand up to scrutiny.
Is natural gas indeed a bridge fuel to a greener, low-carbon energy future? If American gas can maintain its attractiveness versus coal, this creates a sizable opportunity for both extant and emerging U.S. gas exporters.
Policymakers have been focusing on long-term goals to wean California from oil, but here are three smart strategies to seriously shrink the petroleum sector’s climate impacts.
With sub-national initiatives on climate on the rise in the United States, it is important that Europe understands these dynamics, and actively explores ways of engaging with them.
Petcoke, a highly-polluting byproduct of refining heavier oils, can be more polluting than coal. Broad indicators show that highly-degraded petcoke ends up being burned to generate power in Asia, making it important to take stock of global petcoke markets and flows around South Asia.
The field of climate engineering remains largely unknown, especially to policymakers and the public, despite the real risks that accompany such actions and the planetary scale of their impacts.
Issues surrounding climate change and the environment are American issues, not partisan ones, and they’re galvanizing a new coalition that doesn’t blur party lines; it erases them.
Oil is one of the world’s most durable global commodities. With few ready commercial substitutes, its extraordinary staying power is demonstrated by its enduring energy sector dominance, even as market prices fluctuate dramatically and geopolitical disruptions strike.
Authoritative and non-authoritative Chinese sources strongly oppose President Donald J. Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Accords.
Greater transparency is needed to assess and govern the array of new engineering tools under development to alter the global climate system.
Europe should avoid letting dissatisfaction with Trump’s Paris decision cloud the broader transatlantic energy and climate agenda.
To promote Saudi Arabia’s push toward renewable energy, the United States should help the kingdom transform itself from petro-state to participant in the global clean energy market.
By creating policy frameworks for innovative mobility services, governments have an opportunity to address environmental and societal goals while promoting investment and technological leadership.
