BMW Hydrogen 7

August 19, 2007

Does Will Ferrell have a place in a green blog? Of course he does as BMW has seen it fit to give him the keys to the first BMW Hydrogen 7 for everyday use. This is all part of the Hydrogen 7 Pioneer Program which basically means giving Hydrogen cars to high profile people.   Some interesting facts… The car emits nothing but water vapor and is not for sale. Some argue that using hydrogen as a fuel is silly because it actually consumes more energy than it produces but the opposite argument is that over time this should change.   Certainly cars become much cleaner vehicles when using hydrogen for propulsion.   For more information on celebrities such as Angelina Jolie who have driven this car be sure to check out autoblogGreen for more.

Morgan Stanely to Offer Carbon Offset Service

August 15, 2007

If you though the green movment was a passing fancy, think again. All you need to do is heed the age-old adage: Follow the Money. In a follow-on to last year’s proclamation from Morgan Stanley that the firm would invest upwards of $3 billion in environmental markets, including carbon credit trading, Morgan Stanley announced it will partner with consultants Det Norske Veritas (DNV), an independent risk management  foundation in a bid to advise companies that want to go carbon neutral.   DNV is also considered a leading international provider of emissions data certification. Morgan Stanley is not alone. The margins to be made selling carbon credits have attracted the attention of competing investment banks including Citigroup, Credit Suisse and Merrill Lynch.   According the Morgan Stanley, the system will work as follows:   Under the new service, clients will compile their emissions inventory and calculate their carbon footprint by applying the monitoring standards of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Initiative, which has provided the accounting framework for many mandatory greenhouse gas programs across the world, including the EU Emissions Trading Scheme.

China’s Green Olympics

August 8, 2007

Although air quality problems plague the world’s fastest-growing economy, China is doing what it can to have a true green Olympics. The city of Beijing plans 80 percent of buses and 70 percent of taxis will be fueled via clean energy by 2008.   As part of the efforts, 14 electric buses have been running on one bus route for two years in Beijing as a pilot project while 1,300 buses fueled by compressed gas have been put into operation.   Of the two million square meters of buildings used for the Olympics, 26.9 percent will be powered by clean energy like solar, wind and geothermal power, the ministry said.   The seven main stadiums in Beijing will be equipped with solar generators with a total capacity of 480 KW while 90 percent of the lighting outside the stadiums and hot water supply in the Olympics Village will be powered by solar energy.   Beijing will have its first wind power plant by the end of this year with a capacity of 50,000 KW, which will supply main stadiums.   While it will take a while to clean the air in China, the Olympics seem like a great catalyst to get the country moving in the green direction.

CO2Sink

We often read of reducing carbon emissions but another way to minimize carbon emissions is to bury them underground. Here is a fascinating article on an experiment to bury carbon in Ketzin, Germany. How is it done you wonder? In this case, an 800 meter-deep hole is filled with porous rock.
