I'd like this sub to be an exploration of strategies for changing the world to prevent dangerous global warming.

A sub for good news in the fight on climate change

Cool tech that might help welcome too

Self posts encouraged.

No real rules just be excellent to one another, bad vibes will get comments removed.

Oh, except misinformation and climate change denial. We don't want that here.

The overall vibe one should have here is: 'things are fucky, but its all going to be ok because_________'

Also: No US politics.

Renewable Natural Gas

Why is renewable natural gas is not considered a carbon neutral alternative to regular natural gas and other fossil fuels? Honestly asking.

Snowmaking as a climate solution

In recent years I have become interested in the hobby of backyard snowmaking.

Backyard snowmaking is when someone takes a pressure washer and compressed air and combines it to create a small backyard snowgun. In temperatures below around 28 degrees people can cover their backyard with a layer of snow.

I have seen hundreds of people doing this, and I believe if this was scaled up a bit, we could slightly increased the earths reflectivity

Ski resorts have already done this (slightly) and new refrigeration technology will allow snow to be made in temps as high as 80 degrees.

Perhaps this is a way to increase the earths albedo.

Feedback on my Climate Solutions Database & Resource Hub Please

Hi Reddit, I made a climate solutions database, Slack & Whatsapp community and resource hub (via Notion) for climate companies looking to fundraise, network & find partners or clients, land grant funding and more...

https://4ward.vc/techieshub

Love to know what you think and how I can improve this to make more valuable for the climate community and promote more synergies between startups, corps, VCs & govts to accelerate green transition

Thanks!

Matt

Ideas discussion: Reducing carbon atmosphere concentrations through technology

A recent BBC radio 2 report has my brain worried regarding carbon parts per million.

In summary; if we halt all net positive carbon tomorrow, we'd still be basically screwed for at least 50 years with warming, ocean acidification and various weather instabilities.

This leads to an obvious point: we must no longer look to alternative power and de-carbonisation of industry/transport as the ultimate solution to this problem. But only a valid stepping stone. - The ultimate solution should surely be active removal of carbon from the atmosphere

So, here I am posting for a open discussion on technologies future or otherwise that could extract carbon in vast quantities and put it to use.From what I understand of the current deployed methods:

  • Are power hungry
  • Difficult to build/maintain
  • Requires land/too inefficient per km^2

I imagine the idea solution would fit the following criteria:

  • Self sustaining/regulating
  • Great efficiency
  • Technically simple - least parts/few chemical processes

Easily maintainable

A conceptual idea I've had recently: is some kind of chemical device (nanotechnology?) which extracts carbon by bonding to another compound and causes it to migrate from the atmosphere to a different altititue, which could then be harvested, extracted and used for industrial application. I know this sounds like sci-fi, but I believe this type of thinking is required.

Reforestation

I know it is not "the solution" but I'm wondering why more emphasis isn't being done on this low hanging fruit especially in desert regions ...

Africa had plans of reforesting Sahara ... and they started why haven't the West offered support ?
