Lets solve it together

About



At Carbon Crisis we believe that our planet is approaching a crisis point brought on by Global warming.The increase of Carbon  dioxide in the Earths atmosphere is widely accepted as the single largest factor in creating climate change.  Our goal is to work with Institutions, companies and individuals to decrease the levels of the harmful dioxide  by harnessing  state of the art  technology to capture and store the carbons , thus reducing their harmful effects and providing valuable side products.

With the new practical and sustainable technology that Carbon Crisis offers , every individual , company and organisation has the ability to make a difference and help save the planet. The time to act is now. Tomorrow may be too late.

Crisis



Global warming is already having significant and costly effects on our communities, our health, and our climate.Unless we take immediate action to reduce global warming emissions, these impacts will continue to intensify, grow ever more costly and damaging, and increasingly affect the entire planet — including you, your community, and your family.We are facing a potentially staggering expansion of dangerous heat over the coming decades, with rapid and widespread increases in extreme heat projected to occur across the World due to climate change.
Reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is critical for achieving the aims of the Paris Agreement — keeping a global temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius this century, and driving efforts of a 1.5 C limit above pre-industrial levels. But much of the damage already has been done; seasonally adjusted concentrations of carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere have risen dramatically in the past half century and continue to creep upward.
Carbon dioxide has become a major business liability, decreasing a firm's value by $212,000 for every 1,000 metric tons produced, according to KPMG.
While the world pivots to embrace renewable energy, carbon likely will continue to burn to meet the world’s energy demands for the foreseeable future. That’s why carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology can play a key role.

Not only can reduced carbon emissions help businesses to reduce their expenditure, they can also play a huge role in influencing consumer choice. ... This will highlight the key areas of opportunity, providing an excellent starting point for businesses to develop a workable Carbon Reduction Strategy.Why would a company want to reduce its carbon emissions. Here are three good commercial reasons:1) To please customers: Research shows some consumers are more likely to support companies they see doing things to reduce their environmental impact. Look at these two statistics from a Carbon Trust survey* of 500 UK adults aged between 18 and 25:
57% said they would stop buying a product if its manufacturer refused to commit to measuring and reducing its carbon footprint.
55% said they would be more loyal to a brand if they could see it was taking steps to reduce its carbon footprint.

2) To comply: Large companies are required by law to report their carbon emissions.
In 2013 the UK introduced Mandatory Carbon Reporting. Listed companies must report their carbon emissions alongside their financial accounts, using a robust method like the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard.
In 2017 that becomes standard practice right across the EU. Then some 6000 or so companies (typically listed on an EU stock exchange and having more than 500 employees) will be required to report their non-financial information including carbon emissions in their annual management report.
It’s only natural that given this information has to be publically disclosed, companies with public targets to reduce their emissions will want to report the lowest number possible.

3) To enhance their company’s value: Large investors expect transparency on companies’ environmental performance as much as their financial performance. Such “responsible investors” consider environmental data in their assessment of the long term risks of investing in a particular company. The idea being that if the company is aware of its impact on the environment, it is better placed to manage associated risks (like resource scarcity) and likely to have a sustainable business model over the long term.
That’s why many large companies have been reporting this information for years through organisations like the CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) . To help large institutional investors understand the long term viability of their businesses and attract their investment.
Also, new research from CDP shows that transparency and control of carbon emissions affects corporations’ cost of debt. In summary, carbon savvy corporations pay lower interest rates.

Environment Minister Thérèse Coffey said:

While air quality has improved significantly in recent years, we know urgent action is still required to tackle roadside air pollution in our towns and cities.

This is why through our £3.5billion national air quality plan, we are working with local authorities across the UK and I am pleased ten local authorities will now implement new measures to drive down pollution.

The Roads Minister Jesse Norman and I have written to the leaders of all the authorities that have submitted feasibility studies to thank them for their hard work and underline that Defra will continue to support them to improve air quality in their areas.

While Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) levels have fallen significantly in recent decades, including a 27% drop since 2010, the UK Plan for Tackling Roadside Nitrogen Dioxide Concentrations outlines how councils with the worst levels of air pollution at busy road junctions and hot-spots must take robust action.


WHO estimates that around 7 million people die every year from exposure to fine particles in polluted air that lead to diseases such as stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases and respiratory infections, including pneumonia.

What is carbon monoxide and why is it dangerous?

Carbon monoxide is formed by the incomplete combustion of fuels such as wood, coal, propane and natural gas. Carbon monoxide can be toxic when inhaled. As it enters the bloodstream, it can prevent your body from effectively absorbing oxygen, resulting in tissue damage and eventual death.

According to the CDC, more than 20,000 people visit the emergency room each year due to carbon monoxide poisoning. While no one is immune to the effects of this toxic gas, certain people, such as infants, the elderly and those with heart or respiratory conditions, are more sensitive to the effects of CO poisoning.

Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning

Because of the nature of the symptoms of CO poisoning, many people often mistake their symptoms for signs of the flu. However, unlike the flu, symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning will clear up when you leave the area of the CO leak.

Carbon monoxide (CO) may be colorless and odorless, but it is far from harmless. Unfortunately, the toxic gas is virtually undetectable without a carbon monoxide alarm. Many people unknowingly come into contact with potentially dangerous levels of CO every day. Below, learn what factors in your home may expose you to carbon monoxide, as well as the best ways to protect yourself from it.

Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning

Because of the nature of the symptoms of CO poisoning, many people often mistake their symptoms for signs of the flu. However, unlike the flu, symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning will clear up when you leave the area of the CO leak.

The EPA states that some of the most common symptoms of CO poisoning are:

  • Fatigue in otherwise healthy people
  • Chest pain in people with heart conditions
  • Angina
  • Impaired vision and coordination
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness and confusion
  • Nausea
  • Other flu-like symptoms

At higher concentrations, CO poisoning can make you pass out and can even be fatal.
