Fall Student Blog Competition Series
The below posts highlight the winners of our fall 2020 student blog competition. The insights tackle topics from carbon tariffs, to kelp-based biofuels, to carbon-zero real estate.
How can President Biden incentivize other nations to act on climate? A solution may be carbon tariffs.
Renewable energy alone cannot provide continuous power. Energy storage is needed to ensure this energy does not go to waste and meet demand. What if ammonia—a common household cleaner— is the answer?
We look to seaweed for carbon sequestration, biofuel, and more, as atmospheric and oceanic carbon dioxide levels continue to climb. Macroalgae agriculture could be a key tool in fighting climate change.
The threat of a global environmental catastrophe has not compelled the United States into meaningful environmental action. Perhaps fear of the American decline will.
Billions of dollars have poured into clean energy technology, and the industry has seen fantastic results. Technologies already developed by the fossil fuel industry have the potential to solve some of renewable energy’s remaining big problems.
How can the shift to clean energy also address the needs of the millions of fossil fuel workers whose livelihoods are at odds with the energy transition?
Regulation may not be enough for the real estate sector to address its carbon impact. Investments by real estate owners in climate research and development and technology can help bridge the gap.
