U.S.  Senate Committee on Energy & Natural Resources — October 3, 2017
 
01:35:44
U.S. Senate Committee on Energy & Natural Resources Hearing to Examine Energy Storage Technologies held on Tuesday, October 3, 2017 at the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, DC. The purpose of the hearing was to examine the status of energy storage technologies, reviewing today’s technologies and understanding innovation in tomorrow’s technologies. Simon Moores, Managing Director of UK-based Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, was an expert witness for the Senate committee and provided the following written testimony on graphite as it pertains to the US Li-ion battery supply chain: "Graphite: an Anode Processing Problem Graphite anode, the largest input into a lithium ion battery in kilograms, has a similar scaling issue. Graphite in batteries comes from two sources, naturally mined flake graphite and synthetic, man-made graphite. In 2016, graphite anode used in lithium ion batteries equated to 100,000 tonnes. By 2025, battery demand will be 780,000 tonnes. Natural flake graphite mining is dominated by China with 62% of global production in 2016, a position only Brazil can compete with producing 23% of the world’s 650,000 tonnes. This flake graphite is then sent to spherical graphite plants – all of which are presently located in China – to be processed into anode material. Just under 60% of the lithium ion battery industry’s anode is derived from natural graphite with synthetic graphite – produced from graphitizing petroleum coke and tar pitch at very high temperatures – accounts for ~40%. Due to lower production cost, environment and CO2 impact issues, and ease of scaling supply, battery customers are trending towards using more natural graphite anode in their cells but are still blending with synthetic graphite. The knowhow in blending different anode materials with differing raw material signatures is a skill and intellectual property that will separate out the leaders of the pack. While large flake graphite mines are being developed outside of China in Mozambique, Canada and the US, processing capacity to make anode material is still lagging. The US has two graphite companies seeking to mine and process flake graphite for battery grade material in Alabama and Alaska."

Imagine a cube of rock: What the UK Geoenergy Observatories can do for us
 
06:52
The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the British Geological Survey (BGS) are two of the UK’s leading scientific agencies. We are investing £31m in creating two observatories that will provide essential new scientific evidence on the geological environment that modern society uses extensively every day. Meeting future energy demand for the UK will require new technologies and these may include making use of the subsurface. To ensure these are done sustainably, we need to advance our understanding of the underground environment and the potential impact these technologies could have. We are proposing two observatories looking at different geological environments in Glasgow and in the Ince Marshes area of Cheshire. The observatories will comprise drilling deep and shallow boreholes so that state-of-the-art sensors can be installed to measure precisely the state of the underground. The sites will attract world-leading geologists, engineers and other scientists. The data, information and knowledge they generate will provide industry, academia, regulators, government and the public with the tools to break new boundaries in energy science, develop better low-carbon solutions and take care of the environment. Who’s running the project? The observatories have been commissioned by NERC and they will be delivered and operated by BGS. The project is a capital investment from the UK government Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS). NERC is the UK’s leading public funder of environmental science. Our scientists study and monitor the physical, chemical and biological processes on which our planet and life itself depend. Our goal is to place environmental science at the heart of responsible management of our planet. BGS is the UK’s premier provider of objective and authoritative geoscientific data, information and knowledge to help society to use its natural resources responsibly, manage environmental change and be resilient to environmental hazards. Why create underground observatories? • To provide real time, independent monitoring and observations of how underground energy technologies affect natural ecosystems and the environment at the surface, such as farming and water supply. • To gather high-quality scientific evidence on new and established energy and storage technology, increasing efficiency and environmental sustainability. • To gain a world-class understanding that could support management and regulation. • To develop innovative, exportable technology and expertise. Data for all: UK Geoenergy Observatories will be the biggest ever environmental monitoring project BGS has set up – in terms of the volume of data. The two sites will be in use for the next 15 years and it’s impossible to know what new technology may be around the corner. Our teams are thinking very carefully about how the site can be set up so it can be expanded and adapted over time. For more information see: http://www.bgs.ac.uk/research/energy/esios/home.html

Are Algae Biofuels the Future of Energy? : Jerry Brand
 
55:22
The Culture Collection of Algae at the University of Texas at Austin, herein designated as "UTEX", has been in continuous operation since 1953. It was established by Richard C. Starr at Indiana University and was moved to its present site in 1976. Dr. Starr was the Director of UTEX from its inception until his untimely death in February of 1998, at which time Jerry J. Brand became the Director. The principal resource of UTEX is its extensive collection of living algae. Nearly 2,800 different strains of algae, representing approximately 200 different genera, are provided to the public at modest charge. The Collection maintains an especially strong representation of freshwater and edaphic green algae and cyanobacteria, but includes representatives of most major algal taxa, including many marine macrophytic green and red algae. All strains in the Collection were obtained as isolates from natural sources, and no genetically altered strains are maintained. Approximately half of UTEX strains are axenic and all cultures are unialgal. The Culture Collection of Algae is administrated as an Organized Research Unit of the University of Texas in Austin through the College of Natural Sciences. Its principal administrative officer is a Director who is responsible for establishing and enforcing policies regarding the management of UTEX. The resources of UTEX are managed through a Curator. The primary duties of UTEX staff are transferring cultures to fresh media on regular schedules, shipping cultures to users, keeping records related to sales and inventory, preparing media, and managing glassware. The principal function of UTEX is the maintenance of its diverse stock of living algae, in order to make these algal strains available to a user community worldwide at modest cost. Cultures in the Collection are used especially for research, but also for biotechnology development, teaching, water quality assessment, food for aquatic animals, and a variety of other purposes. UTEX does not impose restrictions regarding the use of cultures that are purchased and does not assume any responsibility for cultures that are sold and sent away from the facility. UTEX is a nonprofit organization. Principal financial support is obtained through the National Science Foundation of the U.S.A. Additional support comes from the College of Natural Sciences of The University of Texas at Austin and through the sale of cultures to the user community. The Culture Collection of Algae at the University of Texas at Austin, herein designated as "UTEX", has been in continuous operation since 1953. It was established by Richard C. Starr at Indiana University and was moved to its present site in 1976. Dr. Starr was the Director of UTEX from its inception until his untimely death in February of 1998, at which time Jerry J. Brand became the Director. A major research interest of Jerry Brand is the mechanism of freezing damage in algal cells and processes that protect them from chilling and freezing damage. Studies are directed toward the development of improved processes for cryopreservation (freezing and storing for an indefinitely long period of time at liquid nitrogen temperature) of living algae. These studies have led to the development of protocols to that have facilitated the successful cryopreservation of nearly 2/3 of the strains in the Culture Collection of Algae at the University of Texas. Jerry Brand studies metabolic processes in cyanobacteria that influence their physiological characteristics and ecological distribution. Research in this laboratory is directed toward characterization of a recently discovered cyanobacterium that produces multicellular "nodules" and is capable of dinitrogen fixation in the absence of heterocysts. Additional work is directed toward nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria in microbial mats and methods that selectively inactivate or insert genes at specific sites in cyanobacterial genomes, using "Targetron" methodology. J. Brand interacts extensively with the community of scientists, engineers and business interests that is developing new commercial uses of algae, especially as a source of transportation fuel. http://www.sbs.utexas.edu/brand/index.html http://www.youtube.com/user/UTMcCombsSchool http://www.biosci.utexas.edu/mcdb/research.aspx http://www.biosci.utexas.edu/

United Kingdom powered with 100% renewable energy by 2020 / Tania Soares
 
05:10
The UN warned that the world is moving closer to several "tipping points" in global temperature, beyond which some ecosystems that play a part in natural processes such as climate or the food chain may be permanently damaged. The solution exists as a combination of exploiting all the available renewable energy resources together into the grid to provide more than enough energy to supply our daily needs and completely eradicate our dependence on oil & gas.

The UK, EU and Brexit: Who wins and who loses? - Counting the Cost
 
25:51
The UK has been threatening to leave the European Union for some time, but with Britain preparing for a referendum on EU membership next year, a British exit from the EU, or Brexit, is becoming a real possibility. Prime Minister David Cameron has warned his European counterparts that the UK could leave if it fails to meet his country's needs. He says he wants to stay in the Union, but not under current rules. Cameron recently travelled to Brussels armed with a package of reforms, demanding controversial concessions, the kind which require an actual change in EU Treaty terms. Cameron's proposed reforms included restricting benefits for up to four years for EU migrants arriving in Britain, to be able to opt out of the EU's drive to pursue an 'ever closer union across Europe'. Plus, a stop to the financial regulation which some believe is strangling business in Britain. But the reforms are just one part of the situation, because with or without them, there will be a referendum in the UK which will settle its membership once and for all. So what is next for Europe? Is the Brexit a real possibility? And if so how does the future look like for the different countries? Karel Lannoo, the CEO of the Brussels-based Centre for European Policy Studies, joins Counting the Cost to discuss Brexit and what this could mean for the UK and the EU. The Saudi-Russia oil deal Oil powerhouses Saudi Arabia and Russia have agreed to freeze oil production if other producers do the same, in a move aimed at halting a drop that has seen oil prices reach their lowest levels in more than a decade. The agreement, which also included Qatar and Venezuela, was the first deal struck between an OPEC and a non-OPEC player in 15 years. "It is a beginning of a process which we will assess, in the next few months, and decide whether we need other steps to stabilise and improve the market," Saudi oil minister Ali Al Naimi said. "We don't want significant gyrations in prices. We do not want reduction in supply. We want to meet demand. We want a stable oil price." Iran, who only recently started shipments of crude to Europe after years of sanctions, didn't commit to the plan but said it did 'support' it. Vitaly Kazakov, director of Master of Economics in Energy and Natural Resources (MERE) at the Moscow-based New Economics School, joins the programme to discuss whether the crisis be stopped and what the future holds for oil dependant countries like Venezuela. - Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

How Natural is Natural? Historical Perspectives on Wildlife and the Environment in England
 
43:58
The British countryside has become more 'unnatural'. It is largely the product of human activities. Historians thus have a vital role in nature conservation. A lecture by Professor Tom Williamson, University of East Anglia 17 October 2018 https://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/historical-wildlife-environment-england THE 2018 ROYAL HISTORICAL SOCIETY COLIN MATTHEW MEMORIAL LECTURE We often think of the British countryside as 'natural' but it is anything but. Not only its fields and hedges, but also its woods, heaths, moors, and fens are largely the product of human activities - of complex systems of management, changing over the centuries. Historians thus have a vital role in nature conservation. We need to understand the specific processes that created habitats in order to ensure their survival into the future. But we also need to interrogate ideas about 'the natural' more generally - for many current problems in conservation are a direct consequence of a failure to appreciate the essentially human character of the environment. Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. There are currently over 2,000 lectures free to access or download from the website.

Life Is Good : Sustainable Living (National Geographic Documentary)
 
40:09
Life Is Good : Sustainable Living (National Geographic Documentary) Sustainable living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual's or society's use of the Earth's natural resources and personal resources. Practitioners of sustainable living often attempt to reduce their carbon footprint by altering methods of transportation, energy consumption, and diet. Proponents of sustainable living aim to conduct their lives in ways that are consistent with sustainability, in natural balance and respectful of humanity's symbiotic relationship with the Earth's natural ecology and cycles. The practice and general philosophy of ecological living is highly interrelated with the overall principles of sustainable development. Lester R. Brown, a prominent environmentalist and founder of the Worldwatch Institute and Earth Policy Institute, describes sustainable living in the twenty-first century as "shifting to a renewable energy–based, reuse/recycle economy with a diversified transport system." In addition to this philosophy, practical eco-village builders like Living Villages maintain that the shift to renewable technologies will only be successful if the resultant built environment is attractive to a local culture and can be maintained and adapted as necessary over the generations.

Producing more food with less: Investing in resource-efficient technologies and practices
 
03:17
Globally, agrifood chains consume 30 percent of the world’s available energy – with more than 70 percent consumed beyond the farm gate. In the Mediterranean region, an area with limited land and water resources where agriculture plays a substantial role, the effectiveness and overall productivity of agrifood value chains will be increasingly dependent on the availability and efficient use of energy and natural resources. Achieving the transition to “resource-smart” food systems will require better policy-making as well as a collaborative and proactive multi-stakeholder approach. The video has been produced on the occasion of the Private Sector Forum on Food Security in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean Region that was held in Barcelona on 5 and 6 May 2015 © FAO: http://www.fao.org

These technologies -- shale gas (also known as "fracking"), coalbed methane and underground coal gasification -- have a problematic safety record, and are known to risk serious environmental contamination as a result of their operation. In this lecture we'll examine the technical details of these "extreme" energy technologies, what ecological risks they present, and the flaws in the reasoning behind the UK Government's support for these technologies.

S. Korea to shift toward renewable energy, natural gas
 
01:42
'탈원전 청사진' 나왔다…2030년까지 24기→18기 감축 The government has unveiled its long-term blueprint for Korea's future energy policies. It sets out steps on how to shift the country's reliance on coal and nuclear power toward renewable energy and natural gas. Lee Jeong-yeon reports. Korea's energy ministry announced on Thursday its new energy roadmap for the next 12 years, in line with the worldwide trend of turning to renewable energy. The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy announced its eighth basic plan for long-term electricity supply and demand, which will run from this year until 2031. It stated in a press release that the ministry is shifting focus from prioritizing stable power supply and economic efficiency to focusing on environmental and safety issues. The nation will reduce its heavy reliance on nuclear and coal power plants and increase its proportion of plants that use renewable energy and liquefied natural gas. The goal by 2030 is to raise the ratio of renewable energy to 20-percent by increasing the use of solar and wind power plants. Currently, there are 24 active nuclear power plants producing 30-percent of the nation's electricity, but according to the nuclear phase-out plan, this number will be reduced to 18. According to the plan, greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced by 26-percent from the current average, and fine dust levels will also be cut by 62-percent. This new energy policy reflects safety concerns following the Fukushima incident in Japan in 2011 and the two major earthquakes over the last two years in the southeast of Korea. The ministry will finalize its plans at a public hearing on December 26th. Lee Jeong-yeon, Arirang News.

Wind Energy - The Power to Power Ourselves
 
03:16
As a nation, we have a long and proud history of punching above our weight. We’ve shown the world how a small country can be a leader on the global stage. And now we have the chance to do so again, but this opportunity has far reaching consequences for Ireland and the entire planet. There are few places on earth better located to harness the power of the wind. Our island’s unique position on the edge of the Atlantic might bring some inclement weather, but it surrounds us with a valuable natural resource. An astonishing 85% of our country’s energy needs are imported from abroad, either through fossil fuels or electricity directly from the UK grid. We’re at the mercy of volatile global market prices. Harnessing wind energy – along with other renewable resources – could end that reliance, restoring our energy independence and showing the world how to live without fossil fuels. #eightyfive15

Can Our Economies Grow Forever? | Paul Ekins | TEDxUCL
 
16:56
As human economies grow, they use more and more natural resources and increase their impacts of the environment. The question arises as to whether continuing economic growth is a realistic objective on a finite planet. Theoretically it is possible for economic growth to continue indefinitely and in some places economic growth has been accompanied by reductions in environmental impacts. However, strong public policies are required to bring such developments about. At present most countries do not have the requisite policies in place, but with political will there is no reason why rising prosperity, resource conservation and environmental improvements should not be simultaneously achieved. Paul Ekins has a Ph.D. in economics from the University of London and is Professor of Resources and Environmental Policy and Director of the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources at University College London. He is also a Co-Director of the UK Energy Research Centre. Paul Ekins’ academic work, published in numerous books, articles and scientific papers, focuses on the conditions and policies for achieving an environmentally sustainable economy. His book Economic Growth and Environmental Sustainability: the Prospects for Green Growth appeared in 2000. In the UK New Year’s Honours List for 2015 he received an OBE for services to environmental policy This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Coastal Turbine Sunderland UK - Bill Fontana / IRENA
 
30:01
Primal Sonic Visions is a powerful series of multimedia art works by renowned conceptual artist Bill Fontana, commissioned by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) to convey the transformative power of renewable energy to a public audience, at a critical time when the imperative of tackling climate change has never been greater and when sustainability has become a central concern in our societies. When IRENA was established in 2009, renewables were considered a luxury only few industrialized countries could afford. Today, thanks to falling costs, technological innovation and enabling policies, renewables are part of an unprecedented global energy transformation whose positive impacts extend to every facet of our lives. While seeking to accelerate the global energy transformation, IRENA also aims to catalyze a broader public engagement towards a sustainable energy future. And what more powerful medium is there than art to achieve this? Art is universal, present in every culture, and it is a shared language between us. At its most powerful, art challenges our fundamental perceptions about our place in the world, and expands our horizons of what is possible. Primal Sonic Visions was shown at the 2018 Venice Biennale of Architecture Architettura 2018, under its theme, FREESPACE, which provides “the opportunity to emphasize nature’s free gifts of light - sunlight and moonlight, air, gravity, materials – natural and man-made resources”. Creating Primal Sonic Visions took Bill Fontana on a journey around the world. In Austria, California, Iceland, Italy, Portugal, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom, Fontana captured sounds and images from renewable energy projects and sources. IRENA would like to thank the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment of the United Arab Emirates and the Italian Ministry of the Environment, Land and Sea whose generous support made this exhibition possible. Our appreciation also goes to Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, the Ca’ Foscari Venice Foundation, the Venice Science Gallery and Arthemisia for the collaboration in organizing the exhibition.

Mongols Shirts and Crash Course Posters! http://store.dftba.com/collections/crashcourse In which John Green wraps up revolutions month with what is arguably the most revolutionary of modern revolutions, the Industrial Revolution. While very few leaders were beheaded in the course of this one, it changed the lives of more people more dramatically than any of the political revolutions we've discussed. So, why did the Industrial Revolution happen around 1750 in the United Kingdom? Coal. Easily accessible coal, it turns out. All this, plus you'll finally learn the difference between James Watt and Thomas Newcomen, and will never again be caught telling people that your blender has a 900 Newcomen motor.
