The Soil Carbon Sink Doesn’t Grow With Atmospheric CO2, Study Finds

Credit to Author: Nexus Media| Date: Fri, 26 Mar 2021 15:05:14 +0000

Soil’s capacity to store carbon may be less than previously thought, according to a study published in Nature. The amount of carbon stored in soil is approximately triple that stored in living plants, but as rising CO2 levels increase plant growth, the scientists found, soil carbon storage decreases. “We expected faster plant growth and more biomass […]

The post Are 1-in-10-Year Events Really 1-in-10-Year Events Anymore? appeared first on POWER Magazine.

When evaluating resource adequacy requirements, many power companies and grid operators have used a methodology that originated more than 70 years ago. This probabilistic reliability approach has generally performed adequately through the years. It has generally evaluated loss-of-load events occurring at frequencies of one-day-in-10-years (1-in-10) to be acceptable in terms of system reliability. However, it’s […]

Alberta Oil Sands Emissions Alone Are 3 Times The Global Market For CO2

Credit to Author: Michael Barnard| Date: Wed, 10 Feb 2021 19:15:53 +0000

Alberta’s crude oil from steam-assisted gravity drainage has a carbon debt just for extraction and in province processing that’s as large as the total annual global consumption of CO2. Shipping, refinement and use make that three times bigger.
