Increasing sugarcane production for ethanol detrimental for India: Study

The current level of sugarcane production in India is sufficient to supply the amount of ethanol needed to meet E20 by 2030 if ethanol comes entirely from sugarcane juice, according to new research by Ju Young Lee, Steve Gorelick, Roz Naylor and Anjuli Jain Figueroa.

What does net zero emissions mean for Big Oil? Not what you'd think

"I have grave misgivings about gigaton-scale natural solutions," or forestry offsets, said Rob Jackson. "And gigaton-scale is the only thing that matters when we're talking about the coal and oil and natural gas industries."

Global methane emissions rising due to oil and gas, agriculture

“There’s a lot policymakers and companies can do to cut methane emissions. But in most places around the world, we aren’t doing them,” said Stanford scientist Rob Jackson.

US oil and gas leaks drive global methane emissions spike

"There's a hint that we might be able to reach peak carbon dioxide emissions very soon. But we don't appear to be even close to peak methane," said environmental scientist Rob Jackson.

The world's methane emissions are at a record high

"Emissions from cattle and other ruminants are almost as large as those from the fossil fuel industry for methane," said Rob Jackson. "People joke about burping cows without realizing how big the source really is."
