Fossil Fuel Facts & Statistics
01·08·21
The remains of dead plants and animals buried deep underneath the earth's crust form fossil fuels. The process for organic matter to become fuel we can burn for energy takes millions of years. Fossil fuels contain carbon and hydrogen, which we process into a non-renewable source of energy that provides us with power. Natural gas, coal, and crude oil are forms of fossil fuels, and they are the cheapest of all fuels. Yet, when burnt for energy, fossil fuels cause a lot of harm to humans and the environment. Below are 34 interesting fossil fuel facts that help us understand the impact of fossil fuels as the move to more sustainable energy sources gathers pace.

Your immediate environment might seem in great condition, yet there’s no doubt we should be concerned about rising global temperatures. You may look around you and wonder, “Is the climate really changing? How do we know it is? Can we stop it?'' Below, we look at a curated selection of climate change facts that help to answer those questions.
The pandemic year ends with a tokenized carbon cap-and-trade solution

It has been a blazing start to a new decade, with 13% more large, uncontrolled wildfires around the world this year compared with 2019. This has spelled dire consequences for CO2 levels, which have made worse a terrible COVID-19 pandemic that has led to unprecedented worldwide lockdowns that have rapidly pushed the economy toward digitization.

Check your Food Miles
05·01·20
Do you ever give much thought about what country your food has come from, or how far it has travelled to land on your plate? An avocado bought in the UK might come from Peru, meaning it has travelled 6321 miles to get to you. That sort of distance is pretty shocking, isn’t it? Consider also the environmental impacts of transporting this food, however, it travelled, whether by plane, boat or road: there’s going to be a significant impact. Learn what is seasonal in your country and preference this over produce which has travelled across the world to get to you
10 Tree Planting Projects Around the World

As the popular saying goes, “trees are the lungs of our planet.” They are a vital part of forest and woodland ecosystems and play a big role in our food-producing systems. Unfortunately, there’s a growing global problem of tree felling and deforestation. Thankfully, tree planting projects are springing up across the globe. 
How Planting Trees Can Help Mitigate Climate Change

04·16·20
Around the world, several technologies and processes are being applied to create climate change solutions. For example, some players in the manufacturing industry are working to reduce water waste and carbon emissions. Numerous countries are now adopting renewable energy sources that perform best in their regions to generate their electricity needs. There’s one more approach that promises great results so far; planting trees to mitigate climate change. 
The Need to Report Carbon Emissions Amid the Coronavirus Pandemic

JPMorgan Chase, the first American bank to create and successfully test a digital coin representing a fiat currency, also provided the most fossil fuel financing out of any bank in the world, according to a 2019 report titled “Banking on Climate Change.” The bank recently joined a chorus of other financial institutions and endowments that have declared that they will, going forward, be reluctant to provide funding to the fossil fuel industry — which energizes emerging digital technologies and companies — in order to mitigate the effects of climate change.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is the most influential person in the blockchain industry, according to Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of major cryptocurrency exchange Binance, which added five trading pairs: Binance Coin (BNB), Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH) and XRP at the beginning of December, as well as adding Tether (USDT) later the same month against the Russian ruble. Putin was the first to propose a multinational cryptocurrency along […]
Chinese Blockchain-Based Mobile Payment Revolution

01·27·20
Society is now witnessing the implementation of digital currencies, AI and blockchain technology worldwide. These new digital technologies require a high consumption of electric energy, which is currently produced with coal and fossil fuels that adversely impact the environment. A global shift toward green energy will require the removal of the technological, infrastructural, regulatory and tax policy barriers. In a series, my articles evaluate the tax, digital technology and solar policies (including space power satellites) of the top-CO2-emitting countries.
Tree-Planting Drone Can Plant 100,000 Trees in One Day
BY George Stacey ·

There is no doubt that technology is the biggest contributor to climate change but it also can act as a saviour when used in a pro-environmental manner. Yes, you read it right! British Engineers have created a tree-planting drone that can plant 100,000 trees in one day. Biocarbon Engineering, a start-up based in Oxford, has been using these flying machines to plant trees and grasses at abandoned mines in Australia and on sites in other parts of the world.

Importance of Saving Energy as we Face Up To Climate Change
11·23·19
Energy is something that we have taken for granted for centuries. Whether it is burning fires to create heat or generating electricity to power our homes, it is there when we need it. Needless to say, our modern lifestyles come complete with various energy demands. We use an incredible amount of energy every day with global demand increasing by 2.3% in 2018. Despite increasing efforts, our switch to clean renewable energy remains a work in progress. As such, we still burn fossil fuels for a lot of our energy needs which is contributing to global warming. More than ever, this highlights the importance of saving energy.

Society is now witnessing the implementation of digital currencies, AI and blockchain technology worldwide. These new digital technologies require a high consumption of electricity, currently produced predominantly using coal and fossil fuels that adversely impact the environment. A global shift toward green energy will require the removal of the existing regulatory barriers on technology, infrastructure, finance and tax policy. In this series, my articles evaluate the tax, digital technology and solar policies (including space power satellites) of the countries that emit the highest volumes of carbon dioxide.

Little Difference are Making a Big Difference
BY Sophie Stevens and Pete Oswald ·

Have you ever wondered, every time you buy a greetings card, what the cost is?  Prices vary enormously but the half decent ones are upwards of a £2.  But, what's the real cost?  Not to your pocket, but to the planet.  Unless the card is recycled, or from sustainable sources, who is also paying for your card? The environment? For sure. Local communities? Probably.  Wildlife? Maybe. This was the dilemma that Soph and Pete grappled with when they wanted to start their business.  So, they came up with a solution and Little Difference was born.
Is Education Our Best Weapon Against Climate Change?
BY Brad Frankel ·

Robert Swan once said "The biggest danger to the planet is to think someone else will save it". Brad Frankel at Flooglebinder unpicks how to actually create lasting impact to address climate change. Many people have the mentality that someone else will do it, someone else will pick it up, someone else will put it away, someone else will move it, someone else will give some change to that homeless person, someone else will talk to that charity worker and someone else will save the planet but where does the buck stop?
