Chile’s War Against Climate Change And Impact On Metals
Chile is the world leader in copper production, but the country also has reserves of cobalt and lithium primed for the electric revolution, said Baldo Prokurica, Minister of Mining of Chile. “We’re really driving and pushing the e-mobility aspect. Right now, Chile is the second country with the most electrical busses after China, and in fact right now there are 500 electrical busses in Santiago that are used for public transit,” Prokurica told Kitco News on the sidelines of the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada convention in Toronto. _________________________________________________________________ Kitco News is the world’s #1 source of metals market information.

Russia Is Profiting Off Global Warming | VICE on HBO
While many parts of the world are struggling from catastrophic effects of climate change, Russia is looking to capitalize on it, with the Kremlin driving a narrative that touts the economic benefits. Like more and faster access to petroleum and mineral reserves that were previously unreachable. The Northern Sea Passage, a legendary shipping lane along Russia’s Arctic coastline, has been largely inaccessible for part of the year because of dense sea ice. But now, that ice is melting, opening up a new trade route for Russia's cargo ships. Russian oil companies are already betting big on the new reserves they hope to find in the Russian Arctic, and other industries — like mining — are ramping up production since they now have faster shipping routes to many ports. “The problem of climate change is actually the problem of adaptation to climate change. This is not a tragedy,” said Nobel Prize-winning climatologist Oleg Anisimov. “Certainly some places will become unlivable, but other areas are places that will become more livable.” But the Russian people seem unaware, or unconcerned, about the environmental impacts of these climate change-related activities, like pollution from the booming factories, and wildfires in the North that destroyed million of acres of forest in a major tourism area. VICE’s Gianna Toboni visited Russia's Arctic to see just how big the country is betting on climate change.

Mining to Mitigate Climate Change: Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage in Mine Waste
Most carbon on Earth is held in carbonate minerals formed from weathering of the earth’s crust. Weathering, however, is too sluggish to affect the carbon budget on the timescale of human emissions. Mining changes all of that. The extraction of metals and minerals increases the reactivity of rocks so that they weather spontaneously, capturing carbon from air in the process. Join Greg Dipple as he explores how mine wastes can be deployed to lower the carbon footprint of industrial operations and perhaps even reduce the carbon content of our atmosphere globally.

Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time (i.e., decades to millions of years). Climate change may refer to a change in average weather conditions or in the time variation of weather around longer-term average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions. Certain human activities have also been identified as significant causes of recent climate change, often referred to as global warming. Scientists actively work to understand past and future climate by using observations and theoretical models. A climate record—extending deep into the Earth's past—has been assembled, and continues to be built up, based on geological evidence from borehole temperature profiles, cores removed from deep accumulations of ice, floral and faunal records, glacial and periglacial processes, stable-isotope and other analyses of sediment layers, and records of past sea levels. More recent data are provided by the instrumental record. General circulation models, based on the physical sciences, are often used in theoretical approaches to match past climate data, make future projections, and link causes and effects in climate change.

BLOCKCHAIN Technology, CRYPTOCURRENCY Mining, and Climate Change.
Let's talk about blockchain technology, the wonder development, and cryptocurrency mining and its effects on climate change. Blockchain technology, incorporated into projects and platforms, could give us a consensus truth with regards to percentages, value, statistics, demographics, scales, ratios, amounts, and comparisons. We are moving closer to the tokenization of many, many things. Real estate, utility bills, and agricultural goods. Utilities that create and distribute power could be tokenized as well. Have a look at Power Ledger. They are doing great things in Australia with this. Another interesting token is the Victoria Falls coin. Created as a landmark token which could have great positive implications on tourism.

How Burning Fossil Fuels Leads to Climate Change | Chemistry for All | FuseSchool
Learn the basics about climate change and how burning fossil fuels adds extra carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, and how this then leads to climate change. Fossil fuels, like oil, coal and natural gas, are the remains of living things from millions of years ago. They are mainly composed of carbon with varying amounts of hydrogen. When the petrol burns, it joins with oxygen to build up hydrogen oxide and carbon dioxide. Before the world became industrialised by burning fossil fuels the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere was about 0.028% tiny compared with oxygen at 21% and nitrogen at 78%, but enough to keep us warm. Without this natural blanket of insulating gas the earth would be too cold to support life as we know it. But this carbon dioxide released when fossil fuels burn adds to the existing carbon dioxide levels which are now nearly 50% higher than pre-industrial times. Although we get a daily supply of heat from the sun, the earth normally loses this (at night and in the colder seasons) so the average temperature of the earth remains constant. But this status quo is starting to change: as humanity adds carbon dioxide into our atmosphere the extra layer isolates the heat and it cannot escape as easily. The earth cannot lose its greenhouse gases quickly – and we keep adding to them! By putting our planet in a sweat box, we are causing wide ranging consequences for our climate and life on the planet. Some people think that living things contribute to the enhanced greenhouse effect because they breathe out carbon dioxide – but this carbon has come from their food and that has come from plants which took the carbon from the atmosphere in what is called the carbon cycle. Even burning wood does not contribute to the enhanced greenhouse effect as long as the trees you cut down are replanted. However the carbon in fossil fuels has remained trapped underground for 100’s of millions of years so it is extra carbon that is being added to the natural cycle. We are also throwing away other gases into the atmosphere which help trap infra-red radiation, and so also enhance the natural greenhouse effect. They are methane, especially from rice paddy fields and from cows and nitrous oxide NON from car exhausts. This rise in temperature cause our climate to change because extra energy is trapped on earth – already causing glaciers and ice caps to melt. With more energy in the atmosphere weather becomes more extreme, so there are more floods, droughts, and storms. Not everywhere will get warmer, but the climate is changing all because we have been using fossil fuels at an ever increasing rate.

Margrit von Braun - Pollution, Global Instability, and Climate Change
This is a fascinating talk on mining, pollution, and climate change by Dr. Margrit von Braun who is an environmental engineer and scientist. Margrit von Braun is an environmental engineer, working in the areas of hazardous waste management and risk assessment. She holds degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Idaho, and Washington State University. After working for USEPA in Atlanta, Margrit moved to Idaho in 1977 to work for the Idaho DEQ. She joined the faculty at UI in 1980; she helped found and directed the Environmental Science and Environmental Engineering programs for 10 years and then served as dean of the College of Graduate Studies for 10 years. In 1984, she and her husband, Ian von Lindern, founded an environmental engineering company focused on remediation of hazardous waste sites, particularly in mining districts. Since retiring from UI and selling their company, Margrit and Ian founded TerraGraphics International Foundation (TIFO), a non-governmental organization assisting communities in reducing their environmental exposures. This is a talk on her past work with TIFO in Nigeria and how #mining for metals exacerbates #inequality which the #GreenNewDeal attempts to solve. Mining for metals required by solar panels can potentially be devastating to these communities if the labor is outsourced.

Global Climate Change Policy - Extractive Industry Impacts and Response
Jeff Hopkins, Principal Adviser for International Energy and Climate Policy at Rio Tinto, presented on October 29, 2013 as part of the AEDE Applied Economics Seminar Series. His presentation focused on climate change policy as experienced by an international mining company. This seminar was sponsored by Ohio State's Environmental Policy Initiative. Dr. Hopkins leads policy engagement in the U.S. and Canada for Rio Tinto and works with a globally-distributed corporate team as well as external affairs and environmental specialists who work on-site at Rio Tinto mines and businesses. Rio Tinto is the largest diversified mining company in the U.S. and the second-largest mining company in the world, with major operations producing iron ore, copper, aluminum, uranium, thermal and metallurgical coal, gold, and industrial minerals. As part of their mining, refining, and smelting of these metals and minerals, Rio Tinto emits 41 million tons of GHG emissions per year. Over 70 percent of these GHG emissions occur in places where carbon is regulated through a price-based scheme such as cap and trade or a carbon tax. Dr. Hopkins' policy education and advocacy work on behalf of Rio Tinto at the national and regional levels, often in collaboration with the larger business community and environmental NGOs, is based on extensive experience in scheme development and implementation. Prior to working for Rio Tinto, Dr. Hopkins was a policy analyst and chief economist for the United States House of Representatives Committee on the Budget, and before that for USDA's Economic Research Service. Dr. Hopkins received a PhD from AEDE in 1998, and was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala from 1987-1989.

BECCS scrubs the CO2 out of the exhaust and sequesters it underground, thus taking CO2 out of the air via that plants and putting it into the ground. Direct Air Capture With DAC, giant carbon scrubbers pull CO2 out of the air, after which the CO2 can be used to produce other items like fuel. Two companies that are leading in this field are Carbon Engineering and Climeworks. Stratospheric Aerosol Injection SAI is, basically, creating an artificial volcano. The Mount Pinatubo eruption of 1991 cooled the planet by half a degree for 18 months. By flying a fleet of SAI Lofters (SAILs) regularly into the upper atmosphere, we could spread particulates around the planet and cool the atmosphere. Space Solar Shield By creating a giant solar shield at the L1 Lagrange point, we could block up to 2% of the sun's rays, enough to alter the amount of heat getting trapped by the atmosphere.

Guest Lecturer, Bret Kugelmass, at Colorado School of Mines, on Climate Change & Nuclear Energy
Climate change's gravest impacts are seen distant threat, with severe but nebulous consequences. How would our solution set to address such a problem be narrowed if the repercussions were evaluated as near term and concrete? Bret Kugelmass, in founding the Energy Impact Center, begins with that premise and will walk through the challenges and opportunities in such an environment, derived through a first principles approach.

Big Data in Climate: Opportunities and Challenges for Machine Learning
Author: Vipin Kumar, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Minnesota Abstract: This talk will present an overview of research being done in a large interdisciplinary project on the development of novel data mining and machine learning approaches for analyzing massive amount of climate and ecosystem data now available from satellite and ground-based sensors, and physics-based climate model simulations. These information-rich data sets offer huge potential for monitoring, understanding, and predicting the behavior of the Earth's ecosystem and for advancing the science of global change. This talk will discuss challenges in analyzing such data sets and some of our research results in mapping the dynamics of surface water globally as well as detecting deforestation and fires in tropical forests using data from Earth observing satellites.

A judge rejected a coal mine because of climate change. Here's what that could mean: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-02-12/rocky-hill-ruling-more-courts-choose-climate-over-coal/10802930. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPLbW-HoiBuA8yepLypwA6g?sub_confirmation=1 Landmark Rocky Hill ruling could pave the way for more courts to choose climate over coal The Conversation By Justine Bell-James  On Friday, Chief Judge Brian Preston of the New South Wales Land and Environment Court handed down a landmark judgement confirming a decision to refuse a new open-cut coal mine near Gloucester in the Hunter Valley. The proposed Rocky Hill mine's contribution to climate change was one of the key reasons cited for refusing the application. The decision has prompted celebration among environmentalists, for whom climate-based litigation has long been an uphill battle. New coal power is not the answer The tipping point's been reached: the cold, hard numbers show that new renewable energy is supplying cheaper electricity than new coal-fired power plants could and will continue do so, writes Stephen Long.    Defeating a mining proposal on climate grounds involves clearing several high hurdles. Generally speaking, the court must be convinced not only that the proposed mine would contribute to climate change, but also that this issue is relevant under the applicable law. To do this, a litigant needs to convince a court of a few key things, which include that:the proponent is responsible for the ultimate burning of the coal, even if it is burned by a third party, andthis will result in increased greenhouse emissions, which in turn contributes to climate change. In his judgement, Judge Preston took a broad view and readily connected these causal dots, ruling that:    Other courts (such as in Queensland, where the proposed Adani coalmine has successfully cleared various legal hurdles) have tended to take a narrower approach to statutory interpretation, with climate change just one of numerous relevant factors under consideration. In contrast, Judge Preston found climate change to be one of the more important factors to consider under NSW legislation. To rule against a coalmine on climate grounds, the court also needs to resist the "market substitution" argument — the suggestion that if the proponent does not mine and sell coal, someone else will. This argument has become a common "defence" in climate litigation, and indeed was advanced by Gloucester Resources in the Rocky Hill case. Judge Preston rejected the argument, describing it as "flawed". He noted that there is no certainty that overseas mines will substitute for the Rocky Hill coalmine. Given increasing global momentum to tackle climate change, he noted that other countries may well follow this lead in rejecting future coalmine proposals. He also stated that:Climate change was not the only consideration There should be no doubt that this is a hugely significant ruling. However, there are several caveats to bear in mind. First, there are avenues of appeal. In the absence of a robust legislative framework prohibiting mining operations, it is ultimately up to a court to interpret legislation and weigh up the relevant factors and evidence.    The NSW Land and Environm #A, #judge, #rejected, #coal, #mine, #because, #climate, #change, #Here, #what, #that, #could, #mean #mining, #environmentallaw, #coal, #newsouthwalescoalmining, #rockyhill, #courtruling
