SLASHING CARBON EMISSIONS

THE ECONOMIC CASE 

Cutting emissions will not be enough to keep global warming in check.

Greenhouse gases must be scrubbed from the air.billions trees AfricaNo one in power is listening to the climate skeptics anymore.

One discovery after another suggests the world is warming faster, and climate damages are appearing sooner, than anyone had expected. Much of the policy discussion so far has been aimed at keeping the atmospheric concentration of CO2 below 450 parts per million (ppm) — which was until recently thought to be low enough to prevent dangerous levels of warming. But paleoclimatic evidence shows 450 ppm is the threshold for transition to an ice-free earth. This would imply a catastrophic rise in sea levels, eventually flooding all coastal cities and regions.

‘350’: THE MOST IMPORTANT NUMBER IN THE WORLDCARBON EMISSION SOLUTIONS

To avoid reaching such a crisis stage, climate scientists now call for stabilizing CO2 concentrations at 350 ppm. The world is now around 390 ppm and rising.

Some scientists and activists believe that a concentration of over 350 parts-per-million of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere could lead to feedback loops (the release of methane from Arctic permafrost, for example) that could make warming almost impossible to stop. 

A British team demonstrated that coral reefs won’t survive acidified waters unless we get  CO2 concentrations back down below 360 ppm.

River Fed Ocean Wave Energy

Ocean Wave Energy 

The HUG River Fed Energy is a game changer. It promises to bring electricity created from River Fed ocean wave energy to the shores of the world  at a very low cost. The potential projects are selected from both Colombia and Venezuela in an area where there is more rainfall than in any part of the world: the Choco

At a River Outlet:

This approach adds river water to the height of the reservoir if flooding is not an issue.  The river continues to flow unabated. The spawning of fish will not be affected because a large transfer pipe is used to feed river water into the reservoir.

This approach includes the possibility of adding more HUGs.

Island Wave Energy

  Island Wave Energy Potential

The HUG Island Wave Energy is a game changer. It promises to bring electricity created from ocean wave energy to the ocean shores of the islands of the world  at a very low cost.

We have been waiting for a wave energy solution for the last 40 years.  There have been a dozen approaches with a lot of activity in the last ten years, but there have been no resounding commercial successes.  Most ideas are replicated from other ideas in the box.

This HUG Wave Energy System  is “out of the box” and it will cause an Energy Revolution.

Locations that have the most to gain:

Hawaii Wave Energy

The Hawaii Wave Energy PotentialHUG Wave Energy

The HUG Hawaii  Wave Energy is a game changer. It promises to bring electricity created from ocean wave energy to the ocean shores of Hawaii at a very low cost.

Hawaii would seem a natural site for such technology. As any surfer can tell you, it is blessed with powerful waves. The island state also has the nation’s highest electricity costs—largely because of its heavy reliance on oil delivered by sea—and has a legislative mandate to get 100 percent of its energy from renewables by 2045.

The following images are located along the  coast of Hawaii wherever there is a natural small bay. This type of topography reduces the cost of the reservoir.
