Australia's biodiversity: mining
 
06:13
Mining occurs throughout Australia, but its direct impacts on biodiversity are relatively limited compared with other major land uses because the areas affected are generally small. Dr Alan Andersen talks about the main impacts of mining on biodiversity and how these can be appropriately managed through processes like strategic regional assessments, use of bioindicators in rehabilitation, and biodiversity offsets.

Are Electric Cars Really Green?
 
05:08
Are electric cars greener than conventional gasoline cars? If so, how much greener? What about the CO2 emissions produced during electric cars' production? And where does the electricity that powers electric cars come from? Environmental economist Bjorn Lomborg, director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, examines how environmentally friendly electric cars really are.

So does Leonardo DiCaprio. And many others. The argument goes like this: Regular cars run on gasoline, a fossil fuel that pumps CO2 straight out of the tailpipe and into the atmosphere. Electric cars run on electricity. They don’t burn any gasoline at all. No gas; no CO2. In fact, electric cars are often advertised as creating “zero emissions.” But do they really? Let’s take a closer look. First, there’s the energy needed to produce the car. More than a third of the lifetime carbon-dioxide emissions from an electric car comes from the energy used make the car itself, especially the battery. The mining of lithium, for instance, is not a green activity. When an electric car rolls off the production line, it’s already been responsible for more than 25,000 pounds of carbon-dioxide emission. The amount for making a conventional car: just 16,000 pounds. But that’s not the end of the CO2 emissions. Because while it’s true that electric cars don’t run on gasoline, they do run on electricity, which, in the U.S. is often produced by another fossil fuel -- coal. As green venture capitalist Vinod Khosla likes to point out, "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." The most popular electric car, the Nissan Leaf, over a 90,000-mile lifetime will emit 31 metric tons of CO2, based on emissions from its production, its electricity consumption at average U.S. fuel mix and its ultimate scrapping. A comparable Mercedes CDI A160 over a similar lifetime will emit just 3 tons more across its production, diesel consumption and ultimate scrapping. The results are similar for a top-line Tesla, the king of electric cars. It emits about 44 tons, which is only 5 tons less than a similar Audi A7 Quattro. So throughout the full life of an electric car, it will emit just three to five tons less CO2. In Europe, on its European Trading System, it currently costs $7 to cut one ton of CO2. So the entire climate benefit of an electric car is about $35. Yet the U.S. federal government essentially provides electric car buyers with a subsidy of up to $7,500. Paying $7,500 for something you could get for $35 is a very poor deal. And that doesn’t include the billions more in federal and state grants, loans and tax write-offs that go directly to battery and electric-car makers The other main benefit from electric cars is supposed to be lower pollution. But remember Vinod Khosla’s observation "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." Yes, it might be powered by coal, proponents will say, but unlike the regular car, coal plant emissions are far away from the city centers where most people live and where damage from air pollution is greatest. However, new research in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that while gasoline cars pollute closer to home, coal-fired power actually pollutes more -- a lot more.

Mining Tellurium (Te) and selenium (Se) for solar panels - University of Leicester
 
02:26
www.le.ac.uk https://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/geology/research/vtmrg/tease A shift from fossil fuels to low-CO2 technologies will lead to greater consumption of certain essential raw materials. Tellurium (Te) and selenium (Se) are 'E-tech' elements essential in photovoltaic (PV) solar panels. They are rare and mined only in small quantities; their location within the Earth is poorly known; recovering them is technically and economically challenging; and their recovery and recycling has significant environmental impacts. Yet demand is expected to surge and PV film production will consume most Se mined and outstrip Te supply by 2020. Presently, these elements are available only as by-products of Cu and Ni refining and their recovery from these ores is decreasing, leading to a supply risk that could hamper the roll-out of PV. Meeting future demand requires new approaches, including a change from by-production to targeted processing of Se and Te-rich ores. Our research aims to tackle the security of supply by understanding the processes that govern how and where these elements are concentrated in the Earth's crust; and by enabling their recovery with minimal environmental and economic cost. This will involve 20 industrial partners from explorers, producers, processors, end-users and academia, contributing over £0.5M. Focussed objectives across 6 environments will target key knowledge gaps: The magmatic environment: Develop methods for accurately measuring Se and Te in minerals and rocks - they typically occur in very low concentrations and research is hampered by the lack of reliable data. Experimentally determine how Te and Se distribute between sulfide liquids and magmas - needed to predict where they occur - and ground-truth these data using well-understood magmatic systems. Assess the recognised, but poorly understood, role of "alkaline" magmas in hydrothermal Te mineralisation. The hydrothermal environment: Measure preferences of Te and Se for different minerals to predict mineral hosts and design ore process strategies. Model water-rock reaction in "alkaline" magma-related hydrothermal systems to test whether the known association is controlled by water chemistry. The critical zone environment: Determine the chemical forms and distributions of Te and Se in the weathering environment to understand solubility, mobility and bioavailability. This in turn controls the geochemical halo for exploration and provides a natural analogue for microbiological extraction. The sedimentary environment: Identify the geological and microbiological controls on the occurrence, mobility and concentration of Se and Te in coal - a possible major repository of Se. Identify the geological and microbiological mechanisms of Se and Te concentration in oxidised and reduced sediments - and evaluate these mechanisms as potential industrial separation processes. Microbiological processing: Identify efficient Se- and Te-precipitating micro-organisms and optimise conditions for recovery from solution. Assess the potential to bio-recover Se and Te from ores and leachates and design a bioreactor. Ionic liquid processing: Assess the ability of ionic solvents to dissolve Se and Te ore minerals as a recovery method. Optimise ionic liquid processing and give a pilot-plant demonstration. This is the first holistic study of the Te and Se cycle through the Earth's crust, integrated with groundbreaking oreprocessing research. Our results will be used by industry to: efficiently explore for new Te and Se deposits; adapt processing techniques to recover Te and Se from existing deposits; use new low-energy, low-environmental impact recovery technologies. Our results will be used by national agencies to improve estimates of future Te and Se supplies to end-users, who will benefit from increased confidence in security of supply, and to international government for planning future energy strategies. The public will benefit through unhindered development of sustainable environmental technologies to support a low-CO2 society.

ENERGY / CLIMATE - With final goodbye, Germany to shutter last black coal mine "Prosper-Haniel"
 
11:11
Germany has closed its last black coal mine today, a milestone marking the end of a 200-year-old industry that once fuelled the country's economic growth but lost the battle against cheaper foreign competitors. The remaining 1,500 workers of the Prosper-Haniel mine in Bottrop made their final descent into the pit's belly, greeting each other one more time with the traditional "Glueck auf, Kumpel", or "Good luck, buddy". The miners ended their shift by bringing up the last chunk of "black gold" and handing it to President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, in a ceremony also to be attended by European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker. A mining choir will has sung the miners' anthem "Steigerlied" and local churches will held special services in what promises to be a poignant farewell to a historic era in western Germany's industrial Ruhr heartland. The 150-year-old deep-shaft colliery, whose galleries were dug by six generations of miners and sealed up for good. Although the closure comes amid a growing environmental outcry against coal, the dirtiest fossil fuel, it wasn't pollution concerns but cheaper imports from abroad that sounded the mine's death knell. Dating back to the 19th century, the coal mines, plants and steel mills that once dotted the Ruhr basin were long the beating heart of Germany's industrial prowess, powering its economic "miracle" after World War II. At its peak, the mining industry employed 600,000 people. But Germany's dominance in the black-coal market started to wane in the 1960s as foreign rivals made it cheaper to import the raw material. Today most of the black coal, also known as hard coal, used in Germany's coal-fired power plants comes from Russia, the United States, Australia and Colombia. Chancellor Angela Merkel's government decided in 2007 to phase out state aid and shutter the last black coal mines by 2018 -- giving the workers of Prosper-Haniel 11 years' notice.

Mining Matters in your Everyday Life
 
04:19
This video by the Colorado Mining Association presents an informative and educational video on how mining matters to each and every one of us in our every day life, not just in Colorado but around the world. Many do not realize that our modern society relies on mining for many of the products and comforts we enjoy including such electronic devices such as computers, cell phones, MP3 Players, home appliances, and medical diagnostic equipment to name a few . Many of the facets of the lifestyle we enjoy in Colorado would not be possible without mining, including ski lifts, roadway anti-skid treatments, mountain bikes, , as well as the heat , shelter and electricity needed to survive a long cold mountain night. Colorado is a major producer of molybdenum (called moly for short) which is used in stainless steel, cars, lubricants, and light bulbs. Moly is also used in automotive catalytic converters, to help keep our environment clean. Mining provides for personal health care products you use every day such as cosmetics, toothpaste, deodorant, calamine lotion, baking soda, and your sunscreen! 72% of Colorado's electricty is provided by clean, abundant coal. Coal provides 50% of the electricity nationwide. Colorado coal is low in ash and sulfur; therefore, it is considered "clean coal" Modern methods of filtering and scrubbing coal plant stack emissions provide for cheap and affordable energy to energize our economy and meet the affordable energy costs with little emissions into our environment. Alternative energy such as wind, solar , hydro and geothermal options become a feasible component for fulfilling our Nations' energy needs. Colorado is pursuing an aggressive alternative energy program which depends on the mining industry to provide the raw materials to build the solar panels, wind turbines, hybrid cars, and transmission line infrastructure required to meet the demands of these future programs. Bio-Fuel production, and modern agriculture in general would not be possible without the fertilizer and pest control products which rely on mining for some ingredients. Many do not realize that Colorado uranium is used around the world to fuel clean, efficient, zero emissions nuclear energy facilities in both the industrial and military sectors. Modern mining is conducted without damaging the environment. Any surface disturbances are restored back to their natural condition, typically providing an improved animal habitat. Modern Mmning is environmentally sound and actually safer than most other occupations. You are far more likely to be injured working in the retail, construction or transportation industries than working in a mine, above or below ground. Colorado miners are typically persons who love and actively protect their fragile mountain environment in which they live and work. They usually live in close proximity to the mines and go above and beyond any environmental or safety regulations, not only in their stewardship of environmental protection, but for the protection of their families, homes, co-workers and community in which they live. For more information on how important mining is to our quality of life we invite you to visit the following link : Colorado Mining Association http://www.coloradomining.org National Mining Association http://www.nma.org Mineral Information Institute http://www.mii.org If it can't be grown, it has to be mined !

Alberta Coal Phase-out: What Air Quality Issues?
 
05:04
Since 2013, the Pembina Institute and CAPE and a couple of other charities have claimed that coal-fired power plants cause serious health impacts and costs to Albertans. However, numerous long-term peer-reviewed papers from diverse parties with no association to each other show that this is not the case. The coal phase-out campaign has cost Albertans billions of dollars and has put our affordable, reliable power grid at risk. Coal-fired power is about 2 cents/kWhr 'at the gate' (before administration/distribution etc costs) in Alberta. In Ontario, solar is pegged at 47.3 cents/kWhr and wind at 12.5 cents/kWhr by Ontario's Professional Engineers in May 2015. The Alberta government wants to replace coal-fired power primarily with wind and solar. Wind and solar are intermittent, unreliable power sources that required 100% back-up by conventional power, which means two power sources must be paid while one is on standby for when wind/solar drop off - meaning no reduction in costs. The Alberta government is also planning to pay for 'capacity' instead of power production. Alberta presently has 1440 MW of wind power 'capacity' on the grid, but wind provides only 7% of Alberta's power. Should we pay for 'capacity' that does not generate actual power that can be used? Albertans have been misled on the coal-health impacts and this is costing taxpayers billions of dollars. What should be done?

How to stop coal mining.
 
09:29
The New Green Deal is easy to kick start. The US just went thru the hottest summer in history. Now the majority are ready to act to stop burning coal & oil. First we need a Feed-in payment Policy (F.i.P.P.) that requires utilities, like PG&E, to buy solar energy harvested by anyone who feeds any amount onto the grid. The goal is to decentralize production so that most homeowners can benefit from the policy. The rate of payment must make selling energy a good investment, which will pay back the cost of the solar panels in 2 years. This rate is $0.54 kWh, which is the rate now paid in Germany, Japan, China & 70 nations around the world. Solar panels last 30+ years, so this rate makes the F.i.P.P. a fair investment. This policy created 450,000 new solar jobs in Germany & $4 billion in cash flow thru the Germany economy. The FiPP made the Germany economy the strongest economy in Europe. The world is running out of oil. We are drowning in our own waste. By shifting immediately to a policy of 100% solar & wind, we can stop the climate meltdown now. Wed. 11 am, 9-19-12, join the online US European Green Summit about the Feed-in PP. The focus will be how the FiPP created 450,000 jobs in Germany. Germany also just achieved 50% solar power for their whole nation! First time in history. Germany shut down 1/2 its nukes. Congratulations to Germany for being the world leaders in solar power,... except for the solar trade war against Chinese. Stop the solar trade war with China. Welcome to the newest Green Party of Japan. Register to vote in the Green Party. Second, we need every tenant to go to Goal Zero.com & buy a solar panel kit for $350. This will run your lights, rice cooker, cell phone & ipad from solar, during a quake or emergency. Installing solar is the way the Germans shut down their nukes, coal, oil & gas.

JOURNEY TOWARDS RESPONSIBLE MINING
 
07:12
Mining has important economic, environmental, labour and social impacts in regions where it is carried out. Ensuring that the adverse impacts are minimized and the benefits from mining to the impacted community are optimized becomes critical for mining sector. Negative social and environmental impacts of mining are avoidable if responsible practices are adopted. The launch of Code of Responsible Extraction (CORE) in 2015, paved the way towards transition with the many interventions CORE supported towards a greater positive impact in the lives of miners, environmental sustainability and the industry at large. "Journey Towards Responsible Mining" is a short video film that captures the transformation brought about by the interventions of CORE

A geothermal heat pump or ground source heat pump (GSHP) is a central heating and/or cooling system that transfers heat to or from the ground. It uses the earth all the time, without any intermittency, as a heat source (in the winter) or a heat sink (in the summer). This design takes advantage of the moderate temperatures in the ground to boost efficiency and reduce the operational costs of heating and cooling systems, and may be combined with solar heating to form a geosolar system with even greater efficiency. They are also known by other names, including geoexchange, earth-coupled, earth energy systems. The engineering and scientific communities prefer the terms "geoexchange" or "ground source heat pumps" to avoid confusion with traditional geothermal power, which uses a high temperature heat source to generate electricity.[1] Ground source heat pumps harvest heat absorbed at the Earth's surface from solar energy. The temperature in the ground below 6 metres (20 ft) is roughly equal to the mean annual air temperature[2] at that latitude at the surface. Depending on latitude, the temperature beneath the upper 6 metres (20 ft) of Earth's surface maintains a nearly constant temperature between 10 and 16 °C (50 and 60 °F),[3] if the temperature is undisturbed by the presence of a heat pump. Like a refrigerator or air conditioner, these systems use a heat pump to force the transfer of heat from the ground. Heat pumps can transfer heat from a cool space to a warm space, against the natural direction of flow, or they can enhance the natural flow of heat from a warm area to a cool one. The core of the heat pump is a loop of refrigerant pumped through a vapor-compression refrigeration cycle that moves heat. Air-source heat pumps are typically more efficient at heating than pure electric heaters, even when extracting heat from cold winter air, although efficiencies begin dropping significantly as outside air temperatures drop below 5 °C (41 °F).[citation needed] A ground source heat pump exchanges heat with the ground. This is much more energy-efficient because underground temperatures are more stable than air temperatures through the year. Seasonal variations drop off with depth and disappear below 7 metres (23 ft)[4] to 12 metres (39 ft)[5] due to thermal inertia. Like a cave, the shallow ground temperature is warmer than the air above during the winter and cooler than the air in the summer. A ground source heat pump extracts ground heat in the winter (for heating) and transfers heat back into the ground in the summer (for cooling). Some systems are designed to operate in one mode only, heating or cooling, depending on climate. Geothermal pump systems reach fairly high coefficient of performance (CoP), 3 to 6, on the coldest of winter nights, compared to 1.75–2.5 for air-source heat pumps on cool days.[6] Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) are among the most energy-efficient technologies for providing HVAC and water heating.[7][8] Setup costs are higher than for conventional systems, but the difference is usually returned in energy savings in 3 to 10 years, and even shorter lengths of time with federal, state and utility tax credits and incentives.

Recycling of Solar PV panels
 
08:10
Normally, life time of solar PV panels is about 30 years. After 30 years from installed time that solar PV panels will become wastes if they are not recycled properly. Sometime solar PV panels can be damage cost by natural disasters. Consequently, recycling solar PV panels is very important for the future and the recycling is to prevent future from environmental damage. In this video, we describe recycling processes, environmental impact and ecological impact of solar PV panels.

Why renewables can’t save the planet | Michael Shellenberger | TEDxDanubia
 
17:33
Environmentalists have long promoted renewable energy sources like solar panels and wind farms to save the climate. But what about when those technologies destroy the environment? In this provocative talk, Time Magazine “Hero of the Environment” and energy expert, Michael Shellenberger explains why solar and wind farms require so much land for mining and energy production, and an alternative path to saving both the climate and the natural environment. Michael Shellenberger is a Time Magazine Hero of the Environment and President of Environmental Progress, a research and policy organization. A lifelong environmentalist, Michael changed his mind about nuclear energy and has helped save enough nuclear reactors to prevent an increase in carbon emissions equivalent to adding more than 10 million cars to the road. He lives in Berkeley, California. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Mountaintop removal is a type of coal mining that is both environmentally and residentially destructive. Mining companies use dynamite and huge machines called draglines to flatten mountain summit to extract the valuable seams of coal inside. Mountaintop removal occurs most commonly in West Virginia and eastern Kentucky. The extent of the practice is clearly visible on satellite imagery, which is featured in this Bio Bulletin.
The Role of Coal in a New Energy Age
 
02:08:21
The Role of Coal in a New Energy Age - Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming - 2010-04-14 - For the first time in recent memory, the CEOs of America's top two coal mining companies, and a leading international company, came to Capitol Hill to answer questions on their positions on climate change, clean energy policy, and the challenges that face their industry. "Just as our national energy policy is at a crossroads, so, too, is the coal industry," said Rep. Edward J. Markey, who chairs the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, the committee that hosted the CEOs. "Whether it's climate science, the viability of 'clean coal,' or safety concerns, I believe Congress requires answers from the coal industry on their ability to be a part of our clean energy future." As Congress continues to push for a comprehensive clean energy and climate bill, questions remain regarding the coal industry's position on the essential science of climate change and their potential to provide cleaner, lower-carbon fuel in the decades to come. The House-passed Waxman-Markey bill offered a pathway for coal to transition to carbon capture and sequestration technologies. The coal mining industry has seen significant developments over the last two weeks. A mining accident in West Virginia has renewed questions about the safety of coal extraction, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has offered new rules on the environmental and health impacts of mountaintop mining. TESTIMONY: Gregory Boyce, President and Chief Executive Officer, Peabody Energy Corporation; Steven F. Leer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Arch Coal, Inc.; Preston Chiaro, Chief Executive for Energy and Minerals, Rio Tinto; Michael Carey, President, Ohio Coal Association.

But a commitment to stop new coal and gas - and actually protect our future from climate change - was glaringly absent. “Investing in renewable energy without stopping new coal is like renovating your house and then setting it on fire.

Australia's coal conundrum - 12 Sep 09
 
03:06
Australia is the world's biggest exporter and fourth biggest producer of coal, but its rich mineral wealth has had a serious impact on the environment. The coal industry has made Australians the world's biggest carbon dioxide emitters per person ahead of the US. Now the industry, which is the bedrock of the country's industrial and economic success, says it is under threat as the government strives to introduce measures to reduce carbon emissions in the fight against climate change. Labour unions have warned that the industry will have to slash production leading to the loss of as many as 25,000 jobs. But environmental campaigners say that Australia has a moral responsibilty to change. Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley reports from Newcastle, on Australia's south east coast, home to the country's coal industry.

How green energy will change our future - Docu
 
44:52
How will green energy change our future? What will our future look like with green energy? The growth of green energy goes together with change. Our future will not only include green energy, but our future will also be shaped by it. What will the future sustainable world look like? That is the big question, now that the global transition towards sustainable energy is gaining momentum. For the growth of sustainable energy involves a lot more changes than just the color of the power supplied to our homes. How will we build, how will our mobility be impacted, and will energy, one day, be free? Just like the Internet turned out to have an unforeseen influence on all kinds of industries, from music to taxi businesses, the transition towards sustainable energy will also rise beyond the energy sector. And with a much wider impact than is now assumed. But we know surprisingly little about what that world will look like, and how the people in it will live, work and move around. Expectations are that, by the 2050s, two-thirds of the electricity generated globally will be sustainable. The Netherlands is ambitious too. But what kind of world are we heading for, really, with all these sustainable measures? In partial areas, the future is clear: a massive stop to the use of gas, lots of windmills and solar panels, and perhaps a self-driving car outside. But, for now, there is no wider vision of what the sustainable new world will look like. What will the world be like once energy has become practically free? What will the impact of the transition towards sustainable energy be on the balance of power in the world? A journey along places where the sustainable future is already (nearly) visible. In China, for example, old collapsed coal mines are given a new destination as solar parks. In Denmark, the power plants of the future also serve as skiing slopes. And in Malmö, Sweden, new leases are signed with green fingers.

Fusion Energy (Part II) — Prof. Steven Cowley
 
01:12:31
In many ways fusion is the perfect energy source — there is abundant fuel, the process is intrinsically safe and it produces little environmental impact. However it is enormously hard to make fusion work — although it we can do it in very large devices. I will discuss the physics that sets the scale of the devices and the constraints that arise from engineering. New experiments suggest that smaller and cheaper devices may be possible. I will review these ideas and the latest results from experiments. I suspect that there are ideas to be found that will revolutionise fusion — ideas that today’s students will develop, perhaps they will come from students at ISS.
