【报告题目】Evaluating our own energy use enables better assessment of the challenges in decarbonizing our energy infrastructure and reducing greenhouse gas emissions to address climate change

【报告摘要】

Climate change is the greatest environmental challenge of the 21st century. While large changes are needed to our energy infrastructure to address the causes of climate change, gaining momentum for these changes requires a better understanding of our own personal energy use and CO2 emissions. A major challenge in quantifying energy use is that everything is in different units, making it difficult to sum up energy for different sources. For example, food is reported in energy units of Calories (US) or megajoules (Europe), gasoline use is based on volume in gallons or liters, electric bills are typically reported in kilowatt hours (kWh), and natural gas can be expressed in BTU, CCF, or therm. To understand our own energy use in this talk I introduce the concept of the daily energy unit D and the daily CO2 emission unit C. By defining 1 D as the energy in food that you eat every day (2000 Calories, 8.4 megajoules) all energy use can be converted to D units. For CO2 emissions, 1 C is defined as the CO2 emitted each day by a person due to eating that food (2 lb/d or 0.9 kg/d). Therefore, we can easily compare energy and CO2 emissions for people around the world in terms of D and C based on food, electricity, and fossil fuel use. I will show how your own energy use compares to averages for people in different nations and regions around the world. I also examine how fast we might be able to change our infrastructure to move away from fossil fuels. Energy education is a key for catalyzing change and I think that Environmental Engineers are uniquely qualified to help others learn how energy use in their daily lives translates to CO2 emissions. They can lead in educating students on our college campuses and the public to make it easier to create and implement effective policies and technologies that address climate change. It urgent that we begin making changes to our energy infrastructure as soon as possible.
