Welcome to our latest SnippETS newsletter.
This week we cover Hydrogen and its role in the future low emissions economy.
We also look at how your food choices impact the climate, including; what you buy, when you buy it and what you do with the food scraps.
We then discuss how ocean kelp forests can fight rising GHG emissions and the effects of warming.
Lastly, we commend Ireland and Scotland for making big climate policy announcements!
Hydrogen is the word on everyone’s lips these days, with some praising it, others cursing it and many more who have no idea what to think about the coming hydrogen economy. Most people tend to think that using hydrogen as a energy source is a new thing, when in fact we have been using it for a long time. Read on to learn more about hydrogen and how it will fit in to the energy mix of the future
In another article about hydrogen, the government is embracing the hydrogen economy as a way forward in a carbon constrained era. In this piece we learn that the government wishes NZ to become a “green” hydrogen producer. This will be first and foremost to meet our own energy needs but also to export Hydrogen in the future.
here's a link to the Green Paper.
Keeping with hydrogen, and taking it up to the troposphere, this article looks at what is happening in the world of zero carbon aviation. No, we are not talking about exploding zeppelins here, this is hydrogen fuel cell powered electric aeroplanes! Given that aviation is a major contributor to atmospheric GHGs, let us hope to see major advances in hydrogen fueled flight in the near future!
