Every year we extract over 4.2 GT of oil, 2.5 GT of natural gas, and 3.4 GT of coal to sustain our economies. That’s equivalent to 8.7 GT of carbon and 1.3 GT of Hydrogen. Almost all of these resources are burned to generate energy, causing over 30 GT of CO2 to enter the atmosphere which is unsustainable in view of climate change—the only significant exception is polymers, which fix 0.35 GT/yr of...   More >
