Dr. Mark Zoback Professor of Geophysics and Director of the Stanford Natural Gas Initiative, Stanford University speaks at the OU Price College of Business annual Energy Symposium.
A new analysis looks at what it would take for oil companies to start pumping millions of tons of carbon dioxide into their wells to boost crude production – and what it would mean for the climate. Read the full article here.
The Stanford Strategic Energy Alliance will facilitate research and educational relationships between faculty members and companies with shared scholarly interests.
As the world continues to burn 100 million barrels of oil a day – a rate that is expected to continue for the next 50 years – Stanford Earth researchers are developing greener ways of extracting the oil and mitigating the resulting greenhouse gases. Read the full article here.
Most strategies to combat climate change concentrate on reducing greenhouse gas emissions by substituting non-carbon energy sources for fossil fuels, but a task force commissioned in June 2016 by former U.S.
Stanford Earth's Mark Zoback will received 2016's Outstanding Contribution to the Public Understanding of the Geosciences award from the American Geosciences Institute (AGI). The award is bestowed upon one individual or organization every year for "contributions leading to greater public appreciation and better understanding of the role of geosciences in society".
When planning the energy adaptations that will need to take place as the world begins its long-term transition to a decarbonized energy system, it is tempting to consider cost as the deciding factor in determining which kinds of low-carbon technology to develop.
