iSEE Congress 2016 — Session 3: Reducing the Carbon Footprint of Energy Services

>>I want to open up the session for talking about how we can reduce the carbon footprint of energy, both strategies and potential. And we’ve got three, three great speakers here this afternoon.

Could Injecting Carbon Into the Earth Save Our Planet?

Iceland: the land of majestic waterfalls, black sands, sparkling glaciers, and… maybe one of the world’s wildest solutions for solving climate change? Nestled beside the majestic hills of southwestern Iceland, are a series of huge pods capable of taking CO2 that’s been snatched from the air and injecting it into underground stones, where the gas […]

Production Up, Emissions Down

U-S-A. U-S-A. Wouldn’t it be great if we gave ourselves credit for doing amazing things that weren’t sports related? For example, the United States is the gold medal champ in energy production. At the same time, it is the world leader in reducing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Look… we’re not putting the rest […]
