To address climate change we must reinvent how we make and use energy. From personal conservation measures, to large infrastructure projects, we can all help shape our energy future. Governments have a special role: they must set the direction and demonstrate that moving towards this future will yield long term benefits by remaining committed to this vision.     A tremendous achievement, B.C. will shortly be able to claim it is the only Carbon Neutral Government in the wo...

I am wondering how the world can double reliance on renewable energy by 2030 as part of goals to slow climate change in a drive that will need strong backing from the private sector, given the recent economic recession and lack of some countries commitments to the Kyoto protocol. The United Nations have set a goal once again, like always. "The new goal is to have 30 percent of energy supplies from renewable sources by 2030. About 13 percent of energy used now comes from renewable sources, mos... Read more...

  If Latin America's energy consumption hikes a conservative 60% over 20 years, if the energy cost suffer a minor increase and if the energy mix is kept clean, the continent shall: I. Keep the same Hydroelectric power share (28%); II. Hardly noticeable decrease today's oil share of 44.7%; III. Keep the 22.7% Natural Gas share; IV. Ideally rise its Nuclear share of 0.9%; IV. Radically reduce it's coal and traditional ... Read more...

I asked this question because it is difficult for me to imagine that right now approximately two billion people, one third of humanity, do not have access to energy for their most basic needs such as cooking, lighting and heating. Not coincidently, this is the same one third that is currently living in extreme poverty. ... Read more...

South Asia is constituted by eight developing countries where India, the largest of the 7, shares borders with six of them viz. Sri Lanka, Maldives, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan. All of these countries, except the island nations of Sri Lanka and Maldives share land borders with India. Nepal and Bhutan are landlocked. The region has several major interstate rivers plus a common sea coastline extending from Pakistan in the west to Bangladesh in the east. However,... Read more...

The warming in the greater Himalayas has been much greater than the global average: for example, 0.6 degrees Celsius per decade in Nepal compared with a global average of 0.74 degrees Celsius over the last 100 years. Research has shown that the deposition of black soot and emission of aerosols is accelerating the meltdown of the glaciers, particularly in the Himalayan regions. The black soot that deposits on the top layer of the snow; absorbs more heat and therefore leads to a ... Read more...

  The rapid rise in global food and energy prices has created political and economic stress all over South Asia with serious strategic implications for India, Pakistan, and the region at large. The energy crisis is the most immediate. With oil hovering around $120 a barrel, developing nations with high energy demands like India and Pakistan are particularly vulnerable. The food crisis, on the other hand, is more systemic. While rising energy costs have exacerbated inflation and c... Read more...

Hi Folks,   Trans-regional energy problems are often omitted and usually ignored by regional analyses, since they are not a priority for regional energy policy. They are however crucial to understanding global energy dynamics, not only because they deal with relevant and important problems, but because they help maintain and sharpen a global perspective on things. The Student Assembly has thus compiled a set of trans-regional problems based on our region specific research a... Read more...
