The World Market for Coal:  What's going on the C of "RE less than C"?
 
01:05:49
Google Tech Talks August 7, 2008 ABSTRACT The success of Google's "RE less than C" initiative hinges on coal (C). This talk will review major developments in the coal industry worldwide and explain why coal will be very difficult to unseat in the emerging markets where growth in consumption is most rapid. In the industrialized world the situation is different, and the recent explosion in the cost of building and operating new coal-fired power plants means that in some settings renewable energy (RE) already cheaper than coal. Yet the coal industry has never been so competitive as it is today, and it is possible that coal could remain a dominant energy source even in a carbon-constrained world. So far, however, actual investment in the new technologies needed to make coal competitive has been about two orders of magnitude less than needed. Speaker: David Victor David Victor is Professor of Law at Stanford Law School and Director of the Program on Energy and Sustainable Development at Stanford University's Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies. The Program, launched in September 2001, focuses on power sector reform, the emerging global market for natural gas, energy services for the world's poor, the practical challenges in managing climate change, and the role of state-controlled oil and gas companies in the world's hydrocarbon markets. Much of the Program's research concentrates in Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa. He teaches energy law, regulation and political economy at Stanford Law School. Previously, Dr. Victor directed the Science and Technology program at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, where he remains Adjunct Senior Fellow. He directed the Council's task force on energy co-chaired by Jim Schlesinger and John Deutch and is senior adviser to the task force on climate change chaired by governors George Pataki and Tom Vilsack. He also leads a study group that is examining ways to improve management of the nation's $50b strategic oil reserve. In the past, his research at the Council his research focused on the sources of technological innovation and the impact of innovation on economic growth. His research also examined global forest policy, global warming, and genetic engineering of food crops. His Ph.D. is from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Political Science and International Relations), his B.A. from Harvard University (History and Science). His publications include: Natural Gas and Geopolitics (Cambridge University Press, July 2006), The Collapse of the Kyoto Protocol and the Struggle to Slow Global Warming (Princeton University Press, April 2001; second edition July 2004); Climate Change: Debating America's Policy Options (New York: Council on Foreign Relations); Technological Innovation and Economic Performance (Princeton University Press, January 2002, co-edited with Benn Steil and Richard Nelson); and an edited book of case studies on the implementation of international environmental agreements (MIT Press, 1998).

US president views demonstration of alternative-fuel vehicles

1. Hybrid cars parked in front of White House 2. US President George W. Bush walking towards cars 3. Close-up Bush walking to second car 4. Wide view Bush looking UPSOUND: (English) George W. Bush, US President: "Are people driving these things?" (Answer: "We are starting production this spring.)" 5. Side view of Bush speaking to reporters 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W. Bush, US President: "But what we are talking about is practical and necessary for our country. So thanks for coming. Americans ought to feel optimistic about our future. We are going to be driving our cars using all kinds of different fuels other than gasoline and using batteries that will able to be be recharged in vehicles that don't have to look like golf carts." 7. Pan view as Bush walks away STORYLINE: There were some unusual vehicles on the South Lawn of the White House on Friday. US President George W. Bush got a close look at two alternative-fuel cars as part of his drive to raise awareness about alternative fuelled vehicles. Before the inspection, Bush convened a White House meeting of transportation fuel experts and researchers. They discussed hybrid engines, battery design and other technologies which the president hopes will lessen the US thirst for oil. "Americans ought to feel optimistic about our future. We are going to be driving our cars using all kinds of different fuels other than gasoline and using batteries that will able to be be recharged in vehicles that don't have to look like golf carts," Bush told reporters. Bush said his goal of reducing petrol use by 20 per cent over the next decade was realistic. Bush's energy proposals, made in his State of the Union address last month, include ramping up the production of alternative fuels such as ethanol made from new, non-corn feedstocks. The proposal calls on Congress to require the annual use of 35 billion gallons (133 billion litres) of ethanol and other alternative fuels such as biodiesel by 2017, a fivefold increase over current requirements. The hybrid car that Bush inspected had a high-power lithium-ion battery made by A123 Systems. It can power the car for about 40 miles (64 kilometres) and recharge in five hours. The white truck, made by Phoenix Motorcars Inc. has a range of 130 miles (209 kilometres) and can be recharged in about 10 minutes with a rapid-charging unit or trickle-charged overnight with its onboard charger. On Thursday, Bush visited a North Carolina plant that's researching enzymes to break down items like corn waste and wood chips to produce ethanol.

Wednesday, January 27 2016 Kirsch Auditorium, MIT Stata Center (32-123) Taking action on climate change has become a dominating issue—globally, nationally, locally and even here at MIT. Yet so many questions remain. How much and how quickly will climate change? How will these changes manifest and where? What are the greatest risks posed by a changing climate and how likely are these worst-case outcomes? What is the science behind climate change, and how can basic research inform our efforts to avert, mitigate and adapt to its impacts? Essential knowledge built through basic climate research lies at the core of all these questions. We would not even recognize that earth’s climate is changing were it not for the cumulative efforts of climate scientists over the past five decades, many of them here at MIT. And we cannot hope to improve the climate outcome for ourselves and future generations without the vital, ongoing contributions of fundamental climate science research. Touching on everything from the essentials of planetary climate through the complexities of Earth’s climate system to the challenges of finding the will to act on our knowledge to address current climate change, the symposium features talks and discussion by faculty experts from across the spectrum of climate research at MIT, and keynote speakers Marcia McNutt (Editor-in-Chief of Science) and Justin Gillis (Environmental Science Writer for The New York Times).

BTEC Gives Students A Competitive Edge
 
02:18
Employers looking for new hires with experience reaching beyond the classroom need to look no further than NC State, where biotechnology students have a significant advantage thanks to hands-on training at the Golden Leaf BTEC. Located on Centennial Campus, the Golden Leaf Biomanufacturing Training and Education Center (BTEC) is the largest facility of its kind in the nation and the state's hub of biomanufacturing research and training. Through partnerships between NC State, North Carolina Central University and the North Carolina Community College system, BTEC's distance education and on-site programs will train as many as 2,000 students, prospective and current employees per year. "The center will be a major new force for statewide economic development and job creation in the biomanufacturing, pharmaceutical and related agricultural industries," NC State chancellor James L. Oblinger said. "Through partnerships with industry, other academic institutions and with support from Golden LEAF, we're creating a tremendous opportunity for North Carolina to lead the world in biomanufacturing." The Golden LEAF BTEC trains workers by simulating a biomanufacturing pilot plant facility capable of producing biopharmaceutical products and packaging them in a sterile environment. It also includes support training and education classrooms, laboratories, building and process utilities. North Carolina ranks among the top three biotechnology regions in the United States and is home to some of the world's largest companies, including Novozymes, Wyeth Vaccines, Biogen-Idec and Merck. The BTEC facility will be outfitted so that students will gain experience using the same large-scale equipment they would use on the job at any of these companies. "NC State's legacy is one of listening and responding to the needs of North Carolina," Oblinger said. "BTEC is a perfect example. This type of education and training exists nowhere else in the country at this scale and should serve as a magnet for new business expansions and relocations by this critical sector for our state's economy."

Manage Your Forest for Pine Straw and Rake in the Profits
 
01:10:22
Tired of raking those hardwood leaves in your yard? Maybe you should consider raking pine straw from your forest instead! Pine straw is a non-timber forest product that is produced when southern pine trees such as longleaf, slash, or loblolly pines drop their needles in the fall. The resulting pine straw can be raked by hand or harvested using a mechanical raking machine and turned into bales. Landowners can manage their forest to harvest and then sell the straw on a per-acre basis for a nice profit. These bales are purchased by retailers, landscape contractors, or homeowners to use as landscape mulch. But pine straw is not the only profit potential in your forest. Management opportunities for other non-timber forest products abound including nuts, fruits, specialty wood products, floral and decorative items, and dietary supplements.

The 2018 ARC/ORNL Summer Institute participants include 13 high school teachers and 36 high school students. These 49 participants are from 10 states within the Appalachian region, and are chaperoned by four Resident Teachers. The 2018 participants are distributed into 10 research teams: four of the research teams are comprised of teachers, and six teams are comprised of students. The ARC/ORNL Summer Institute is administered for ARC by ORAU and culminates with group presentations by students and teachers about their projects and research findings. The goals of the ARC program are to: * Encourage more high school students to continue their studies beyond high school; * Encourage more students to pursue careers in the projected shortage areas of science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM); and, * Raise the quality of STEM instruction in high schools throughout the region. Progress in each of these three areas provides economic benefits to the Appalachian region.

Jon Stewart Is None Too Impressed With Donald Trump Or Hillary Clinton
 
01:36
"Are you eligible to run if you are a man-baby? Uhh, a baby-man?" Jon Stewart said about Donald Trump while speaking at the University of Chicago.  During a live taping of David Axelrod's podcast, Jon Stewart gave his take on the presumptive GOP nominee. "He makes sense if you view it through the prism of talk radio. ... We are falling. There are rapists and murderers at the border coming to kill you. If that's what you've been fed, and that's what you're buying into, Donald Trump makes more sense than anybody else out there," Stewart said of the GOP front-runner.  The whole idea of political correctness is everybody's so sensitive. Just get over it. Why should African-Americans be so sensitive about police shootings? Donald Trump couldn't handle us making a joke about him. Graydon Carter did a joke about Donald Trump's hands 25 years ago. He's still not f***ing over it," Stewart said during "The Axe Files" podcast live taping.  Stewart says he's not impressed with Hillary Clinton's campaign either.  "What I think about Hillary Clinton is I imagine to be a very bright woman without the courage of her convictions, because I'm not even sure what they are. And maybe I'm wrong, maybe a real person doesn't exist underneath there. I don't know." Stewart said of the Democratic front-runner.  "That is not to say that she is not preferable to Donald Trump. Because at this point, I would vote for Mr. T over Donald Trump," Stewart said.  This video includes images from Getty Images.  Newsy is your source for concise, unbiased video news and analysis covering the top stories from around the world.

Leaps, Not Creeps (Extreme Weather and Climate Change)
 
47:44
This is a signature speech by Dr. William Calvin from August, 2018. He presents cutting-edge and so far little-recognized ideas on the connections between extreme weather and climate change. These are the basis for the CO2 Foundation's contributions to understanding extreme weather and wise CO2 cleanup responses. Hint: Doubling down on emissions reductions is not the answer. Turning on subtitles may help with understanding and remembering of the ideas. Find the transcript, audio version, and learn more, plus leave comments at co2foundation.org.
