  • Up in Smoke – How the climate and our health suffer from flaring

    It’s like burning banknotes. Latest statistics from the World Bank (WB) indicate that the amount of gas flared each year is enough energy to supply electricity to several small countries or many millions of households. The flaring of 140 billion cubic metres (bcm) a year releases large quantities of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere – and that is not only bad news for the climate, ...

  • Growing Pains: Current Disadvantages of Renewable Energy

    As renewable energy projects continue to be a growing piece of global energy production, it is easy to assume that they will automatically have less of an impact on the environment and people than conventional fossil fuels. Renewable energy is an appealing way to avoid carbon emissions, use fewer resources and provide energy security and jobs. But it is not perfect, and despite the many positives ...
