This is how we can track the carbon footprint of car batteries

October 27, 2022 | summary

“The Global Battery Alliance Greenhouse Gas Rulebook will help users and manufacturers [calculate and track] the greenhouse gas footprint of lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles and other applications.

“The rulebook aims to provide a robust methodology to generate and collect process-specific data to enable users and manufacturers to compare the carbon footprints of all battery and component suppliers.”

The carbon footprint of electric vehicles will decrease over time, the report says

October 27, 2022 | summary

“…EV greenhouse gas emissions become less carbon-intensive than an ICE vehicle in states with low-carbon electricity at just 19,000 miles.”

…[study] also shows that a typical ICE vehicle emits 66 tons of greenhouse gas emissions…over the course of 200,000 miles, while hybrid and battery electric vehicles account for 47 tons and 39 tons over the same mileage…means non-electric cars are inherently cleaner …[due to other factors]”

There’s a frightening connection between dementia and car pollution

October 27, 2022 | summary

“A meta-analysis … found that people living in areas with higher traffic pollution had an increased risk of dementia.

“…Meta-analysis adjusted for dementia risks such as age, gender, smoking and education – but the association could also be due to other external factors such as diet.

“…the paper underscores something we’ve known for many decades: traffic pollution is bad and can cause a host of health problems/

New research on electric cars suggests that charging shouldn’t worry you

October 27, 2022 | summary

“…Research based on the charging behavior and daily driving habits of EV owners suggests that these concerns need not be the deciding factor before deciding whether to buy a petrol or electric vehicle.

“70% of all EV charging cycles involve drawing 10kWh or less of electricity per plug-in session. In addition, a significant proportion of the charging processes consume less than 5 kWh of electrical energy.”

Cars are still cars – even if they are electric

October 26, 2022 | summary

“To address our climate challenges, we need smaller, safer electric vehicles — and many more transit options.

“As the shift to electric vehicles accelerates and commodity prices rise, there is good reason to promote smaller cars that cost less, require smaller batteries, are better suited for the journeys most people take and pose less of a threat to pedestrians represent… Expand alternatives such as public transit and cycling infrastructure in cities across the country.”

Doctors lament ‘record profits’ for fossil fuel companies as climate change weighs on global health

October 26, 2022 | summary

“Nearly 100 contributors have contributed to The Lancet’s annual report on climate change and health, which details how heat waves, drought and air pollution are killing thousands.

The report accuses fossil fuel suppliers – and the governments that subsidize them – of “undermining efforts towards a low-carbon, healthy and livable future”.

“Heat-related deaths have increased by about 68% worldwide since the beginning of the millennium…”

Researchers are making batteries from hemp

October 26, 2022 | summary

Bemp Research Corp “…uses carbonized hemp instead of heavy metals like cobalt or nickel to make batteries that are lightweight and durable. While many researchers around the world are looking for ways to use graphene for better EV batteries, it is still an expensive material that cannot be scaled up for mass production.

LiS/B4C uses boron carbide from hemp – only needs one heavy metal, lithium.”

Methane “super-emitters” discovered on Earth by the space station’s EMIT experiment

October 26, 2022 | summary

“EMIT has identified more than 50 methane super emitters in its first few months of operation – and that’s not even its primary mission.

“Limiting methane emissions is key to limiting global warming. This exciting new development will not only help researchers better pinpoint where methane leaks are coming from, but also provide insight into how to address them — and fast.”

How to save thousands on installing an EV charger at home

October 25, 2022 | summary

“One of the first things to think about when getting a home charger is where you’re going to install it. The further away you are from your fuse box, the more expensive it gets…

“…some states are offering discounts for eligible customers installing residential chargers…Arizona Public Service is offering a $250 refund to residential customers..EV enthusiasts should look for smart EV chargers to reduce costs.”
