Canada, carbon capture -

ย  Canada is pushing to provide incentives for at least two new massive carbon capture projects by 2030, a federal government document showed, with nearly a dozen oil and gas companies already pursuing rights to store carbon dioxide inย Albertaโ€™sย vast underground caverns. Canadaโ€™s four existing projects, representing 15 per cent of global facilities, currently capture 4 million tonnes per year, according to the Canadian government. The hubs to collect carbon from clusters of emitters would advance Prime Minister Justin Trudeauโ€™s goal of cutting emissions by 40-45 per cent from 2005 levels by 2030. The global oil industry is betting heavily that...

Canada, renewable energy, renewable fuels -

The writingโ€™s been on the wall for coal for awhile, and in 2020, it just couldnโ€™t compete with renewable energy when it came to new installations. Fossil fuels lost more ground to wind and solar in 2020 ย  Thatโ€™s according to aย new reportย by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), which found that 62 per cent of renewable energy capacity that came online last year cost less to install than the cheapest fossil fuel option. In real terms, thatโ€™s a total of 162 GW that was cheaper to install than coal, around double what it was in 2019. The costs of...

The family ran for safety before they watched the house burn. โ€œEvery great architecture...
