Superwhite Paint Will Reduce Need for Air Conditioning and Actually Cool the Earth

Purdue University engineers have created white paint that can keep surfaces up to 18 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than their ambient surroundings – almost like a refrigerator does, but without consuming energy. Commercial “heat rejecting paints” currently on the market reflect only 80%-90% of sunlight and cannot achieve temperatures below their surroundings. The white paint that …

Provinces with 55% of Canada’s Population Working on Gen 4 Small Modular Nuclear Reactors

Alberta is joining New Brunswick, Ontario and Saskatchewan to work together to support the development and deployment of SMRs (small modular reactors). Combined the four provinces are 21 million out of Canada’s 38 million people. SMRs in the future could also support Alberta’s oil and gas industry by reducing their emissions. SMR’s can be used …

South Pole Warming Three Times Faster Than World Average

Over the last three decades, the South Pole has experienced a record-high statistically significant warming of 0.61 ± 0.34 °C per decade, more than three times the global average. Here, we use an ensemble of climate model experiments to show this recent warming lies within the upper bounds of the simulated range of natural variability. The warming resulted …

Global CO2 Emissions Did Not Increase in 2019

Global emissions were unchanged at 33 gigatonnes in 2019 even as the world GDP grew by 2.9%. Increased wind, solar power, natural gas power and higher nuclear power output in developed countries offset increased emissions in emerging countries. * coal CO2 emission declined by about 200 million tonnes (Mt). This was -1.3%. * advanced economies …
