    If You’re Not at the Table, You’re on the Menu: Representation at Climate Negotiations

    If You’re Not at the Table, You’re on the Menu: Representation at Climate Negotiations

    COP26 begins next week, and on the agenda is the finalization of the Paris Rulebook, which describes how to implement the Paris Agreement. The carbon trading mechanisms in Article 6 will be one of the key points in this discussion. While Article 6 offers several opportunities, it also has several risks -- especially for Indigenous communities. 

    In this episode, we speak with two Indigenous activists: Ghazali Ohorella, who will be in Glasgow advocating for Indigenous rights in Article 6, and Gunarti, who is an environmental activist  with the Sedulur Sikep indigenous community in Indonesia. Ohorella and Gunarti share the importance of representation at international climate negotiations and why these decisions matter to local Indigenous communities.

    Dissecting the Corporate Net-Zero Landscape

    Dissecting the Corporate Net-Zero Landscape

    In this episode, we’ll hear from two guests; Harlan Cutshall who is involved in helping define how companies and investors engage with the net-zero arena at the leading sustainability nonprofit CERES, and Ruth Apps, who works at a Scottish SME, Gravitricity, that is at the forefront of developing the technologies we’ll need to implement in order to make net-zero a reality. With COP26 only a few weeks away, we’ve asked both of our guests to provide their insights on the current state of the corporate net-zero landscape, and the momentum that COP26 might provide in helping further accelerate the push towards corporate net-zero alignment.

    From Global to Local: COP26 and Community-Level Action

    From Global to Local: COP26 and Community-Level Action

    A lot has happened since the first season of AmpliFIRE. The election of Joe Biden and the pursuit of his climate agenda has reintroduced the United States as an influential driver for international negotiations. With COP26 -- the Conference of Parties, a yearly climate conference hosted by the United Nations -- on the horizon, there is no time to lose.

    On the first episode of AmpliFIRE: season three, we examine the stage set for COP26 and speak to professor and community activist Dr. Na’Taki Osborne Jelks about the local impacts of the negotiations.

    Hidden Emissions

    Hidden Emissions

    In this episode, Jordan Hasty, Jasmine Williams and Mackenzie White have a roundtable discussion about global greenhouse gas emissions accounting systems and how to ethically distribute the responsibility for reducing these emissions. Join us as we explore what current emissions accounting frameworks include, where their limitations are, and what can we do about it.

    Carbon Capture and Sequestration

    Carbon Capture and Sequestration

    Carbon capture and sequestration has been identified as a leading solution for climate change mitigation. However, the technology has encountered challenges in being implemented at scale. Ambika Natarajan will be speaking to an expert, Dr. Hari Mantripragada, to learn how carbon capture works as well as the technological, market and policy barriers that limit CCS from reaching its potential. This episode was adapted from a podcast initially written and produced by Maggie Layer, Max Rotenburg and Regina Luu, with their permission.

    This episode features an interview with Dr. Hari Mantripragada, a research scientist at the University of Pittsburgh whose research focuses on Energy Systems. Dr. Mantripragada received his bachelors in technology from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, his masters in Energy Systems at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, and his Ph.D. in engineering and public policy from Carnegie Mellon, where he also completed a post-doctoral fellowship. He is a science and engineering ambassador for the National Academy of Sciences, a member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, and a member of both the US and International Association for Energy Economics. While we will be discussing some of the key takeaways from his paper, “Boundary Dam or Petra Nova — Which is a better model for CCS energy supply?” we also want to highlight his work on the Integrated Environmental Control Model, an open-access tool for measuring the cost performance and emissions of fossil fuel power plants.

    “Boundary Dam or Petra Nova — Which is a better model for CCS energy supply?” which was published in the International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control in 2019 and is linked here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S1750583618307436.
