In the Wake of US Climate Failures, Don't Look to China for a Panacea 7.9.2017 Truthout - All Articles
A projection of what Shanghai, China, will look like in a world that is 4 degrees warmer (c. 2100). (Photo: Climate Central) While Xi Jinping has been eager to assume the role of leader in the fight against global warming, he is unlikely to reverse China's impact on global resource consumption and pollution. The pressures to produce jobs and bring mass consumerism to over a billion people under China's hybrid bureaucratic collectivist-capitalism economy will ensure that Xi will remain committed to prioritize growth, even at the cost of planetary ecological collapse. A projection of what Shanghai, China, will look like in a world that is 4 degrees warmer (c. 2100). (Photo: Climate Central) Since President Trump pulled out of the Paris climate accord, there has been speculation that China could take the lead in the fight against climate change. China's leader Xi Jinping has certainly been eager to assume this role, just as he took up the cause of free trade against Trump's nationalist posturing. At first ...

To Avoid Climate Catastrophe, We'll Need to Remove CO2 From the Air 25.8.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Klaus Lackner has a picture of the future in his mind, and it looks something like this: 100 million semi-trailer-size boxes, each filled with a beige fabric configured into what looks like shag carpet to maximize surface area. Each box draws in air as though it were breathing. As it does, the fabric absorbs carbon dioxide, which it later releases in concentrated form to be made into concrete or plastic or piped far underground, effectively cancelling its ability to contribute to climate change. Though the technology is not yet operational, it's "at the verge of moving out of the laboratory, so we can show how it works on a small scale," says Lackner, director of the Center for Negative Carbon Emissions at Arizona State University. Once he has all the kinks worked out, he figures that, combined, the network of boxes could capture perhaps 100 million metric tons (110 million tons) of CO2 per day at a cost of US$30 per ton -- making a discernible dent in the climate-disrupting overabundance of CO2 that has ...
