5 easy ways to cut YOUR carbon footprint

To avoid the worst effects of the climate emergency, we will have to reduce our individual emissions to zero in the next 28 or so years. In this blog, I will focus on some of the practical and pragmatic things that I think are relatively easy to achieve.

Embedded Emissions: The Carbon Cost of EveryTHING.

Manufacturing anything involves taking random combinations of atoms (usually manifested as a raw material) and processing them into a useful product. This takes huge amounts of energy, and causes lots of emissions.

Heating And Global Warming: Are We Burning Down The House?

This blog is a preview of the full article, which will be available in the soon-to-be-released special edition of Engineer Innovation: Sustainable World.

Binging? Diving into the Metaverse? Buying NFTs? Do you even care about the environment bro?

The amount of greenhouse gases released from working and playing online will not get most climate activists smashing the like and subscribe buttons.

Have we grown too comfortable with air conditioning?

Air conditioning is the fastest-growing energy segment in building end-use. Through upstream emissions at the power generation source, their rise in usage contributes to global warming that pushes us to seek chilled relief. How do we set the thermostat to sustainable?

Engineering the low-carbon, cruelty-free, lab-grown hamburger of the future

87% of the greenhouse gas emissions from a burger come from the beef. Find out how simulation is helping to design the cruelty-free, low-carbon, lab-grown burger of the future.

Keeping the lights on in a Climate Emergency

In the midst of climate emergency 63% of our electricity still comes from burning carbon dioxide belching fossil fuels, that kill millions of people every year. We investigate how simulation is helping to deliver a low-carbon future.

Engineers caused the Climate Emergency. Only engineering simulation can save us from it.

Since the industrial revolution human civilisation has become increasingly dependent on the combustion of large quantities of fossil fuels. Engineering a future without them is the biggest challenge our species has ever faced.
