The quantity that describes, for a given mixture and amount of greenhouse gas, the amount of CO2 that would have the same global warming potential (GWP) when measured over a specified timescale (generally 100 years).
A carbon footprint is the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused directly and indirectly by an individual, organization, event or product
To prevent the worst impacts of climate change, we need to remove more CO2 from the atmosphere than we are releasing
Atmospheric greenhouse gases (GHG's), such as carbon dioxide and methane, that come from the combustion of fossil fuels are changing the Earth's climate.
The term decarbonization literally means the reduction of carbon
Its any energy type that is generated from natural resources, such as sunlight, wind or water
Gases that trap heat in the atmosphere are called greenhouse gases
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is an intergovernmental organisation that supports countries in their transition to a sustainable energy future
Methane is an alkane with the chemical formula CH4. As a hydrocarbon, it can undergo hydrocarbon combustion which gives off heat.
Odorants are chemical additives that are mixed in with natural gas during the odorization process to add an artificial smell to the gas.
Its the accidental release of oil into a water body
One of the most important remedies in oil spill response is mechanical recovery by use of sorbent materials.
