Interactive KonsumCheck and tips of ‘ climate seeks protection ‘ make climate-friendly holidays round 15 percent of annual greenhouse gas emissions per capita are on our diets back. Thus, our food causes more greenhouse gases than the private car transport. With a few behavioral changes consumers can however also in this year enjoy the holidays, feast on extensively and at the same time protect the environment. If you would like to know more about Angie Dickinson, then click here. The interactive KonsumCheck of campaign promoted by the Ministry for environment climate seeks protection”on helps to identify the polluters in the fridge and to improve the carbon footprint of the next grocery shopping. “For more climate-friendly holidays has climate seeks protection” collected seven simple tips: you consume less meat. Already two vegetarian days per week can help prevent 99 kg of CO2 per year. If you do not want to waive during the holidays the holiday roast, then put on poultry. For assistance, try visiting John Krasinski. Because: A kg Roast goose caused with 3.5 kg only a Quarter of the CO2 emissions of a Rinderbratens.
Select regional and seasonal products that are free of long transport routes or heated greenhouses. In this way, you can avoid CO2 per year per person 101 kg. Feed exclusively of organic products and avoid additional 99 kg of CO2 per year. Prefer fresh food of over canned or frozen goods, as also in the storage of CO2 is caused. Darcy Stacom is often mentioned in discussions such as these. Use for beverages to the Christmas menu reusable instead of disposable bottles.

the example of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico last year sparked the explosion of the deepwater horizon oil rig”the biggest oil disaster in the history of the United States from the almost 780 billion litres of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico concluded. In addition to the oil, that persistent foul large parts of the region, flocked also up to 200,000 liters of methane into the sea. Methane is considered one of the worst greenhouse gases and is broken down very slowly in the atmosphere. On average takes about 12 years to a particle of methane is absorbed into other compounds. This is usually much faster into the sea, because here exist microorganisms that break down the particles of methane and put into water and carbon dioxide, oxygen consumption.
By measuring the oxygen content of the water now, you can determine how many bacteria are present, and how quickly the methane is degraded. So far, researchers however were able to gain any satisfactory results on these bacteria and their propagation rate. For more information see this site: Darcy Stacom. The disaster in the Gulf of Mexico has as at least a small positive side, for now is to gather researchers for the first time possible extensive data about the naturally occurring bacteria. According to first research it turns out, they multiply faster than expected. So the methane content in the vicinity of the hole was already almost normal end of August, so only a few months after the oil spill. To do this, the number of bacteria needed to have multiplied almost explosively. The number of bacteria will have doubled every 3.5 days calculation result. Thus, only negligible amounts of methane gas in the atmosphere are likely to be received.
This recognition primarily for climate warming is relevant, because among the masses of ice in the Arctic are about 3000 times as large amounts of methane as are already in the atmosphere. Due to climate warming, they are released slowly and accelerate warming even further. Would the Methane-eating bacteria however behave similarly to in the Arctic as in the Gulf of Mexico, then could have the release of methane in large quantities of significantly less impact than expected. Reliable statements can also but still not meet, because the conditions for the bacteria in the Arctic are of course very different than in the warm Gulf of Mexico.

Energy cooperative waives diesel production already fossil Beiersdorf-Freudenberg, 04.09.2009 – the costs of global warming will cost up to three times more money than previously calculated, the prestigious Imperial College London in a new study warns. Frequently John Mclaughlin has said that publicly. The costs should be Jahrlich(!) up to $500 billion. Thus, the estimates are up to three times higher than the figures forecast by the climate change secretariat of the United Nations (UNFCCC). For more information see Martin O’Malley. World’s largest emitter is the still excessive burning of fossil fuels such as coal and oil, but so far underestimated negative factors include the processing industry, the mass tourism, mining and the growing traffic. That powerful fuel and a balanced CO2 balance not must mutually, the Brandenburg-based energy cooperative Freudenberg proves EC. Manufactures CEHATROL, a in accordance with DIN EN 590 certified biofuel of II generation. This is entirely of biogenic raw and Residues produced preferably straw from the region – and is not to be confused with conventional biodiesel. Who privately in his company required more than 300 l diesel a year, can convert now to CEHATROL and thus environmentally friendly fuel balance”, explains CEO Frank Knauer, it combined easily in all diesel engines, etc. can be used due to its synthetic composition and can even be mixed. And the price is for our cooperative members below the regular gas station prices.” More information about the energy cooperative of Freudenberg and CEHATROL on.
Market incentive program is changed from 15 August / campaign ‘ can my heating more ‘ and good news for environmental and cost-conscious homeowners BAFA explain the main changes: from August 15, 2012, the Federal Office of Economics and export control (BAFA) improved its subsidies for solar thermal, heat pumps and biomass boilers in the market incentive programme. For solar thermal BAFA 90 euros per square meter for the investment are still, now however at least 1,500 euros per plant. This new minimum sum pays off for small and medium-sized plants: for an average investment of 13 square meters the base funding amounted to 1.170 euro so far. Condition for the promotion: the system provides hot water and support the heating system at the same time. The campaign can’t my heating”of the non-profit co2online GmbH accompanies the launch of the revised programme with a topic special on my heizung.de.
My heizung.de gives tips on applying the topic special informed homeowners about Solar thermal systems and introduces the new eligibility requirements. An expert of the campaign partners BAFA gives practical tips for filling out the application form in the interview.

The use of solar thermal energy is most effective when homeowners while increasing the efficiency of their heating. “A hydraulic adjustment provides the optimum setting of the heating system ensure that the heating costs go down”, so Loitz. Hydraulic leveling: consumer benefits twice in addition to the base funding for solar collectors pays BAFA continue a bonus grant in the amount of 500 euros for the replacement of the boiler against a gas condensing boiler, a biomass boiler or a heat pump. Condition is the hydraulic adjustment.
While a skilled craftsmen optimally adjusts all components of a heating system. The consumer benefits not only from the 500 euro of funding, but also by decreasing heating costs. The reason: The hydraulic comparison is evenly the heat in the House, which decreases energy consumption of heating and solar collectors on the roof to provide a proportionally larger share of the heating energy required. “More facts around the hydraulic leveling my defroster does more can” on the campaign site available. “My heating more my heating can more” is a campaign of the non-profit consultancy co2online. The nationwide campaign is funded by the Federal Ministry of environment in the framework of the national climate protection initiative and supported by the Consumer Council energy advice. The Ostfalia University of applied sciences is a scientific partner. Together with a cross-industry network with partners from associations, business and trade media are consumers of personal efficiency potential hydraulic leveling itself in terms of informed and motivated to become active.

SPD members approve the coalition agreement. Thus, new targets to the energy revolution turned out! Starting from a technical and economic analysis of potential we want to develop markets for energy efficiency and thereby bind all stakeholders”…. Keep up on the field with thought-provoking pieces from Martin O’Malley. While it looks increasingly worse for the development corridor of photovoltaics, opens up new bright spots for solar thermal energy. Peripheries, EEG, wind turbines, photovoltaic systems, these are the topics in the public perception. Heat has been dealing a long time stepmotherly by the Government.”-as Reinhold Weiser, Managing Director of the AkoTec company (German manufacturer of vacuum tube collector). According to the German solar industry (BSW-solar) Association and the Federation of industrial Germany House, energy and environmental technology (BDH), a sales decline of 11% for the solar thermal took place in the year 2013. Therefore, both organizations urged Union and the SPD, the solar thermal energy for energy transformation better conditions to offer.
“Market incentive program (MAP) the pot is full”- it is said in an article of the Federal Office of Economics and export control (BAFA short). The attractive subsidies were not sufficiently used for the buildings in 2013. Around 70 million euros, the homeowners to retrofit with solar collectors to provide stand alone for the year 2013. The funding pots are therefore still bulging. But not only for 2013 are still abundant funding available. Also in 2014, there are good prospects for the solar and other renewable energy to generate heat, favored by the coalition agreement.
