US EIA publishes its International Energy Outlook 2013

The US Energy Information Administration has published its  International Energy Outlook 2013 (IEO2013) which projects that world energy consumption will grow by 56 percent between 2010 and 2040 with total world energy use rising from 524 quadrillion British Thermal Units (Btu) in 2010 to 630 quadrillion Btu in 2020 and 820 quadrillion Btu in 2040. Much of this growth occurs in countries outside the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) where demand is driven by strong, long-term economic growth. Energy use in non-OECD countries rises by 90 percent compared to 17 percent in the OECD.

The world's fastest-growing energy sources are renewable energy and nuclear with each growing by 2.5 percent per year. Nevertheless, fossil fuels continue to supply almost 80 percent of global energy use through 2040. Of this, natural gas is the fastest growing fossil fuel source.

This blog piece is going to be fairly long, quite involved in its detail, but hopefully very enjoyable if you despise and detest climate change denial, as I do. But first, an explanation of the circumstances.

The other day, on Twitter, I indulged in a bit of regular fun-poking at James Delingpole, as I often do because, quite simply, the man just invites it. For those not in the know, Delingpole is a pretty nasty character really. He writes regular blog pieces and op-eds for Breitbart and The Spectator, usually on climate change, but also on other subjects as well. He is usually, and seemingly, unashamedly vicious, as will become apparent in my coverage of him and his behaviour in this piece. Given his behaviour, I am not afraid, occasionally to indulge in a bit of 'ad-hominem' warfare myself, ind…

5 Companies and Their Efforts to Reduce the Environmental Impact of Manufacturing

By Rana Tarakji
The Industrial Revolution has undoubtedly affected the environment. From pollution to global warming, the environment has taken on a lot of the burden for many of the advancements that humans have enjoyed.
Unfortunately, the manufacturing industry is one of the biggest contributors to the significant damages and hazards on the environment. Manufacturing companies are among the biggest producers of solid, liquid, and gaseous wastes that lead to huge levels of pollution.
Although many manufacturing companies still do not have policies and practices in place to reduce their negative impact on the environment, there are many who are taking the lead to a more sustainable and environment-friendly approach.
Coca Cola When it comes to beverage manufacturers, Coca Cola is among the biggest around the world. They have started taking on a more responsible environmental commitment by making water preservation, sustainable packaging, and energy and climate protection among their goals.…
