Climate Risk and the Fossil Fuel Industry: Two Feet High and Rising
Burning coal, oil and natural gas is responsible for two-thirds of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Yet these same fuels are also the economic mainstay of resource-rich countries and the world’s largest firms, meaning that climate change relief actions represent danger for the fossil fuel business. In this working paper, energy fellow Jim Krane examines the risks the fossil fuel industry faces as a result of climate mitigation strategies.

Carbon and oxygen isotopes of bulk carbonate in sediment deposited beneath the eastern equatorial Pacific over the last 8 million years Reghellin, Daniele; Coxall, Helen K.; Dickens, Gerald R.; Backman, Jan (2015)To improve the understanding and utility of bulk carbonate stable carbon and oxygen isotope measurements, we examine sediment from cores in the eastern equatorial Pacific that span the last 8 Ma. We measured δ13C and δ18O in 791 samples from Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Site U1338 and Deep Sea Drilling Project Site 573, both located close to the ...
Chemical derivatization of single-wall carbon nanotubes to facilitate solvation thereof; and use of derivatized nanotubes to form catalyst-containing seed materials for use in making carbon fibers Margrave, John L.; Mickelson, Edward T.; Hauge, Robert H.; Boul, Peter; Huffman, Chad; (2003-11-11)This invention is directed to making chemical derivatives of carbon nanotubes and to uses for the derivatized nanotubes, including making arrays as a basis for synthesis of carbon fibers. In one embodiment, this invention also provides a method for preparing single wall carbon nanotubes having substituents attached to the side wall of the nanotube ...
Fabrication of reinforced composite material comprising carbon nanotubes- fullerenes- and vapor-grown carbon fibers for thermal barrier materials- structural ceramics- and multifunctional nanocomposite ceramics Barrera, Enrique V.; Yowell, Leonard Lee, Jr.; Mayeaux, Brian Mitchell; Corral, Erica L.; Cesarano, Joseph, III (2007-12-11)The present invention is directed towards a ceramic nanocomposite comprising a nanostructured carbon component inside a ceramic host. The ceramic nanocomposite may further comprise vapor grown carbon fibers. Such nanostructured carbon materials impart both structural and thermal barrier enhancements to the ceramic host. The present invention is also ...
