CO2 emissions from international shipping under IMO's initial GHG strategy
 
01:45
At the 72nd meeting of its Marine Environment Protection Committee, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted a resolution codifying an initial greenhouse gas (GHG) strategy for international shipping. This strategy, which represents the first global climate framework for shipping, includes quantitative GHG reduction targets through 2050 and a list of candidate short-, mid-, and long-term policy measures to help achieve these targets. The strategy implies that international shipping would consume between 3.8% and 5.8% of the world’s remaining carbon budget under the Paris Agreement, up from 2.3% in 2015. Meeting the strategy’s 2050 target will require near-term policies to significantly improve the fuel efficiency of the global fleet and to promote the development and deployment of low- and zero-carbon fuels and propulsion technologies. Dan Rutherford, ICCT's Marine and Aviation Program Director, explains the range of emissions pathways possible under IMO’s initial GHG strategy. Figure 1 shows CO2 emissions from international shipping under the strategy compared to one possible business as usual (BAU) emissions pathway.

What is MARINE DIESEL OIL? What does MARINE DIESEL OIL mean? MARINE DIESEL OIL meaning & explanation

Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Marine Diesel Oil (MDO) is a type of fuel oil and is a blend of gasoil and heavy fuel oil, with less gasoil than intermediate fuel oil used in the maritime field. Marine Diesel Oil is also called "Distillate Marine Diesel". MDO is widely used by medium speed and medium/high speed marine diesel engines. It is also used in the larger slow speed and medium speed propulsion engine which normally burn residual fuel. Those fuels resulting from a catalytic cracking/visbreaking refinery. Marine diesel oil has been condemned for its nimiety of sulfur, so many countries and organizations established regulations and laws on MDO use. Due to its lower price compared to more refined fuel, MDO is favored particularly by shipping industry. ISO 8217 of the International Standards Organization (ISO) is the primary standard of MDO. Marine fuels range in viscosity from less than one centistoke (see viscosity) (cSt) to about 700 cSt at 50°C (122°F). (1 cSt = 1 mm2/s.) And higher viscosity grades are preheated during use to bring their viscosity into the range suitable for fuel injection (8 to 27 cSt). But MDO does not need to be preheated before using. According to Chevron, MDO has a sulfur limit varies from 1 to 4.5 percent by mass for different grades and Sulfur Emission Control Areas (SECAs). MDO is made from a catalytic cracking/visbreaking refinery. The catalytic cracking operation breaks large molecules into small molecules. It happens in high temperature and with appropriate catalyst. Visbreaking is a process that turn the bottom product of the vacuum unit, which has extremely high viscosity, into lower viscosity, marketable product. In visbreaking, a relatively mild thermal cracking operation is performed. And the amount of cracking is limited by the overruling requirement to safeguard the heavy fuel stability. The market of MDO is much smaller than on-highway diesel. According to the a 2004 U.S. Diesel Fuel Sales statistics from U.S. Department of Energy, Energy Information Administration, Marine shipping only takes 3.7% of total diesel market. On the other hand, On-highway diesel takes up 59.5% of diesel fuel sales. This small sales share of MDO is due to the high proportion of petroleum resid that made it can be used on large marine enginee. According to Chevron, petroleum resid, or inorganic salts, in the fuel result in injector tip deposits that prevent the injector from creating the desired fuel spray pattern. But those low-speed, large marine diesel engines are appropriate for using fuel containing large amounts of petroleum resid. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) develops regulations for marine shipping. Among those regulations, MARPOL (the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships) is the most widely adopted one. MARPOL is the main international convention covering the prevention of operational or accidental pollution of the marine environment by ships. Inside IMO, there is a committee called MEPC(Marine Environment Protection Committee). MEPC has meetings periodically and discuss resolutions to current marine pollution by adding amendments to its official documents.

Brown Calls Upon EPA to Curb Greenhouse Gases From Ocean-Going Vessels
 
03:18
Citing the "threat of global climate disruption," California Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr. today joined three national environmental organizations in petitioning the United States Environmental Protection Agency to adopt strict greenhouse gas regulations for ocean-going vessels. The petition asks the EPA to make specific findings that ships significantly contribute to global warming. At a news conference at the attorney general's headquarters in Los Angeles, Brown said: "The U.S. EPA has the authority to curb greenhouse gas emissions and our petition today asks the agency to exercise that authority without delay." Ocean-going vessels, in total, emit more CO2 emissions than any nation in the world except the U.S., Russia, China, Japan, India and Germany. Ominously, these emissions are projected to increase nearly 75% during the next 20 years. "International law guarantees a right of �innocent passage' for all ocean-going vessels, but this right does not include polluting the air or water near our coastal cities," Brown said. "If the U.S. is to do its part in reducing the threat of global climate disruption, then EPA must limit the global warming emissions from ships that enter the ports of the United States," Brown added. Under the Clean Air Act, California has the authority to file a petition asking the EPA to establish CO2 emissions standards. In the petition filed today, Brown asks the EPA to: -Make a finding that carbon dioxide emissions from ocean-going vessels contribute to air pollution and endanger human health and welfare. -Set standards for reducing such carbon dioxide emissions. Brown said that under the reasoning of the United States Supreme Court's holding in Massachusetts v. EPA, the Environmental Protection Agency has the authority to adopt standards for greenhouse gas emissions from vessels that enter U.S. territorial waters. The United Nations International Maritime Organization (IMO) has authority under international treaties to establish pollution standards for vessels but to date has failed to adopt controls on greenhouse gas emissions. At a recent meeting of the IMO Marine Environment Protection Committee, it was agreed to inventory greenhouse gases by 2009, but no commitment was made to regulate such emissions.

Fifteen years later, it had grown into an international powerhouse. We were making headlines every month. I was famous. And then I walked out the door. The mission, once noble, had become corrupted -- political agendas and fear mongering trumped science and truth. Here's how it happened. When I was studying for my PhD in ecology at the University of British Columbia, I joined a small activist group called the Don't Make a Wave Committee. It was the height of the Cold War; the Vietnam War was raging. I became radicalized by these realities and by the emerging consciousness of the environment. The mission of the Don't Make a Wave Committee was to launch an ocean-going campaign against US hydrogen bomb testing in Alaska, a symbol of our opposition to nuclear war. As one of our early meetings was breaking up, someone said, "Peace," A reply came, "Why don't we make it a green peace," and a new movement was born. Green was for the environment and peace was for the people. We named our boat "The Greenpeace" and I joined the 12-person crew for a voyage of protest. We didn't stop that H-bomb test but it was the last hydrogen bomb the United States ever detonated. We had won a major victory. In 1975, Greenpeace took a sharp turn away from our anti-nuclear efforts and set out to Save the Whales, sailing the high seas to confront Russian and Japanese whalers. The footage we shot -- young protesters positioned between harpoons and fleeing whales -- was shown on TV around the world. Public donations poured in. By the early 1980s we were campaigning against toxic waste, air pollution, trophy hunting, and the live capture of orca whales. But I began to feel uncomfortable with the course my fellow directors were taking. I found myself the only one of six international directors with a formal science background. We were now tackling subjects that involved complex issues of toxicology, chemistry, and human health. You don't need a PhD in marine biology to know it's a good thing to save whales from extinction. But when you're analyzing which chemicals to ban, you need to know some science. And the first lesson of ecology is that we are all interconnected. Humans are part of nature, not separate from it. Many other species, disease agents and their carriers, for example, are our enemies and we have the moral obligation to protect human beings from these enemies. Biodiversity is not always our friend. I had noticed something else. As we grew into an international organization with over $100 million a year coming in, a big change in attitude had occurred. The "peace" in Greenpeace had faded away. Only the "green" part seemed to matter now. Humans, to use Greenpeace language, had become "the enemies of the Earth." Putting an end to industrial growth and banning many useful technologies and chemicals became common themes of the movement. Science and logic no longer held sway. Sensationalism, misinformation, and fear were what we used to promote our campaigns. For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/why-i-left-greenpeace

Fishermen protecting the sea: Dimitris Zannes at TEDxAthens
 
10:39
http://www.tedxathens.com/ 1080p HD mode available. About Speaker: I was born and raised in Andros. I loved the sea ever since I was young and dreamt of becoming a fisherman, despite my family's attempts to prevent this. In 1995 I got my first boat. Since 2002 I have been actively engaged with the organization and protection of the fisherman's profession. In January 2007, the idea for an area of marine regeneration was born between the rowlocks of the boat, in a small shipyard in Syros. Since then, on an effort both to protect my profession, as well as to regenerate the sea, I have been cooperating with local authorities, international NGOs and Members of the European Parliament. With their assistance I have managed to present the idea in Greece, at the European Commission for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, to participate in a number of committee meetings in Brussels on the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy, as well as in meetings for the exchange of experiences among coastal fishermen from the rest of Europe. Greek and foreign media alike have shown s strong interest in the opinions that I express on the management of the field of fisheries. During this past year I have been representing MedArtNet (www.medartnet.org) in Greece. Until the 20th September 2012, and for a number of years, I was President of the South Aegean Federation of Coastal Fishermen, at which point the Federation was automatically dissolved, due to a change in the legal framework.Since 1991, Anastasia Sapouna and I sail through life together and we have three children. About TEDx: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

China's top lawmakers are holding their bi-monthly session in the capital Beijing. The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress will spend six days reviewing draft amendments. Seven laws are on the agenda. Three of them deal with administrative reconsideration, military facilities protection, and marine environmental protection. Lawmakers will also deliberate a motion to abolish the re-education through labor program known as "laojiao". Last month, key policy decisions called for the system to be abolished to protect human rights. Also on the agenda is a resolution on family planning. This follows a proposal to allow couples to have a second child even if one parent is an only child. The committee will also deliberate reports on the medium-term progress of the 2011-2015 development plan, rural poverty relief and the compulsory education law.

Prelims – General issues on Environmental Ecology, Bio-diversity, and Climate Change IUCN , MONTREAL PROTOCOL , The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is an international non-governmental organization  The Convention on Wetlands, called the Ramsar Convention, is an intergovernmental treaty that provides the framework for national action and international cooperation for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources The United Nations Conference on the Human Environment held at Stockholm June 1972 CITES-It was drafted as a result of a resolution adopted in 1963 at a meeting of members of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) The Conference aims to control or prevent international commercial trade inendangered species or products derived from them. The Convention does not seek todirectly protect endangered species, rather it seeks to reduce the economic incentive topoach endangered species and destroy their habitat by closing off the international market. The Convention on the Conservation of MigratorySpecies of Wild Animals (also known as the BonnConvention) aims to “conserve terrestrial, marine and avianmigratory species throughout their range.” The Bhopal disaster, also referred to as the Bhopal gas tragedy, was a gas leak incident on the night of 2–3 December 1984 at the Union Carbide India Limited (UCIL) pesticide plant in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. It was considered as of 2010 to be the world's worstindustrial disasterThe Protocol to the 1979 Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution on the Reduction of Sulphur Emissions or their Transboundary Fluxes by at least 30 per cent is a 1985 protocol to the Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution agreement that provided for a 30 per cent reduction in sulphur emissions or transboundary fluxes by 1993. The protocol has been supplemented by the 1994 Oslo Protocol on Further Reduction of Sulphur Emissions. Vienna convention The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the international body for assessing the science related to climate change. The IPCC was set up in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to provide policymakers with regular assessments of the scientific basis of climate change, its impacts and future risks, and options for adaptation and mitigation. IPCC assessments provide a scientific basis for governments at all levels to develop climaterelated policies, and they underlie negotiations at the UN Climate Conference – the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Amendment to Montreal Protocol, 2017 170 countries have reached a historic deal to phase out Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) after years of protracted and at times seemingly intractable negotiations in Kigali, Rwanda accepted an amendment to the Montreal Protocol that will see developed countries reduce their use of HFCs from 2019. HFCs are potent greenhouse gases with a significantly higher global warming potential than carbon dioxide and are widely used as refrigerants, aerosol sprays and in solvents. HFCs have been widely used as an alternative to Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) since the Montreal Protocol came into effect to prevent ozone depletion. Developed countries must reduce HFCs use by 10% by 2019 from 2011-2013 levels, and 85% by 2036.

Research & Development in the Arctic ~ 1957 US Army; The Big Picture TV-366

Across dangerous wastes of ice and snow the camera lens follows these engineer soldiers as they construct roads stretching deeper and deeper into the Arctic. As Army civilian scientists and soldiers of the First Engineer Arctic Task Force penetrate deeper into the Arctic vastness, new problems and new dangers present themselves. In some places, the snow and ice covering the land prevent the engineers from reaching the dirt, or fill, needed for road building. Men and vehicles must travel over the snow. But as the shape of the land far below alters, hidden changes take place in the unseen snow layers underfoot. Dangerous, man-killing crevasses -- great vaults and hundred-foot caverns -- are formed. All this and more is captured on film for THE BIG PICTURE. It is a challenge, a frontier which must be conquered. American ingenuity, determination, and scientific skill are dedicated to this task.'

The Arctic consists of the Arctic Ocean and parts of Alaska (United States), Canada, Finland, Greenland (Denmark), Iceland, Norway, Russia, and Sweden. The Arctic region consists of a vast ocean with a seasonally varying ice cover, surrounded by treeless permafrost. The area can be defined as north of the Arctic Circle (66° 33'N), the approximate limit of the midnight sun and the polar night. Alternatively, it can be defined as the region where the average temperature for the warmest month (July) is below 10 °C (50 °F); the northernmost tree line roughly follows the isotherm at the boundary of this region. Socially and politically, the Arctic region includes the northern territories of the eight Arctic states, although by natural science definitions, much of this territory is considered subarctic. The Arctic region is a unique area among Earth's ecosystems. For example, the cultures in the region and the Arctic indigenous peoples have adapted to its cold and extreme conditions. In recent years, the extent of the sea ice has declined. Life in the Arctic includes organisms living in the ice, zooplankton and phytoplankton, fish and marine mammals, birds, land animals, plants and human societies... The eight Arctic nations (Canada, Denmark (Greenland & The Faroe Islands), Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Russia, and USA) are all members of the Arctic Council, as are organizations representing six indigenous populations. The Council operates on consensus basis, mostly dealing with environmental treaties and not addressing boundary or resource disputes. Though Arctic policy priorities differ, every Arctic nation is concerned about sovereignty/defense, resource development, shipping routes, and environmental protection. Much work remains on regulatory agreements regarding shipping, tourism, and resource development in Arctic waters. Research in the Arctic has long been a collaborative international effort, evidenced perhaps most notably by the International Polar Year. The International Arctic Science Committee, hundreds of scientists and specialists of the Arctic Council, and the Barents Euro-Arctic Council are more examples of collaborative international Arctic research...

Cross Sound Tunnel Meeting - 6.5.18
 
02:03:01
In continuance of their vocal opposition to constructing a tunnel from the northern area in the Town of Oyster Bay to Westchester, Supervisor Joseph Saladino and the Town Board join with the Village of Bayville Anti-Tunnel Committee in hosting a community meeting on Monday, June 4th at Jericho High School, from 7pm to 10pm. The meeting will include a presentation on the negative impacts such a project would have on communities throughout the Town of Oyster Bay. “A Cross Sound Tunnel will have negative impacts on communities from the south shore of our Town to the north shore. From air pollution created by the invasion of diesel trucks to destroying our shoreline and wildlife habitats, and tunneling under thousands of homes to added visitors flooding our beaches, this project will devastate our suburban quality of life. Join us for this special public meeting and lend your support to the opposition,” said Supervisor Joseph Saladino. Councilwoman Michele Johnson added, “New York State recently funded a feasibility study for a tunnel to be constructed, beginning at the northern end of the Seaford-Oyster Bay in the Syosset and Woodbury communities. This tunnel would place additional burdens on our communities, which are already densely populated and burdened with significant traffic, and ruin our environment and marine life. Members on the Town Board and the Bayville Anti-Tunnel Committee have been working to educate the public and protect our suburban quality of life. Please join us at Jericho High School and learn how this project will forever change your life!” Bayville Deputy Mayor Joe Russo added, “The tunnel’s potential for damage to Long Island’s aquifers, our region’s only source of water, is of grave concern. The Grumman-Navy Plume should have taught us that we need do everything possible to protect our water supply.” The meeting at Jericho High School will include a presentation on the project and educate residents on what they can do to help prevent its construction. Residents will have an opportunity to voice their concerns. For more information, please visit the Town’s website at www.oysterbaytown.com or call (516) 624-6380.

Thanks to GoPro, here’s what the journey through it looks like for one of them: a turtle’s eye view of the Reef. To find out more about the level of pollution affecting turtles within the Great Barrier Reef, WWF is working on innovative project in Queensland with the support of our partners Banrock Station Wines Environmental Trust, James Cook University, The University of Queensland, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, State and Commonwealth government agencies, Indigenous rangers and local community groups. As part of that project, the opportunity arose to very carefully fit a small GoPro camera to a turtle, to better understand the post-release behaviour of tagged green turtles. The result is this amazing video. This week, the World Heritage Committee will vote whether to keep a strong watch over Australia until the health of the Great Barrier Reef. The decision is critical to the future protection of the Reef.
