RP Weekly Recap | March 8 – 12


A report released this past week by the Climate Action Tracker suggests the United States needs to reduce its national emissions by at least 57-63% below 2005 levels by 2030 and provide support to other countries in order to be consistent with the Paris Agreement 1.5°C limit. The report further suggests that President Biden’s actions in the transportation and building sector need to be as stringent as his policies for decarbonizing the U.S. power sector by 2035 if the emissions targets are to be reached. Luckily, the report spells good news for Summit Carbon Solutions $2 billion pipeline project currently in development that will carry carbon dioxide captured from ethanol refineries scattered across the Midwest to a site in North Dakota where it will be pumped thousands of feet underground. Check out these stories and more in this week’s recap of all things happening in oil and gas!
