In July 1969 the Apollo 11 astronauts conducting several tasks during extravehicular activity (EVA) operations on the surface of the moon. The EVA lasted approximately 2.5 hours with all scientific activities being completed satisfactorily. #OneGiantLeap

#Apollo11 landed on the Moon on July 20, 1969.

That's #OneSmallStep for [a] man, #OneGiantLeap for mankind.

*Thread* Our technical report shows how a Net Zero target can be delivered across the economy through a range of costed scenarios. (1/15) #NetZeroUK theccc.org.uk/publication/ne…
Power sector emissions can be reduced to almost zero through the deployment of #renewables and firm low-carbon power - such as nuclear and CCS - whilst providing twice the amount of electricity as today. Gas will continue to play a role, but will need to be decarbonised. (2/15)
The UK has vast renewable resources. Deploying renewables is the lowest cost way to reduce power sector emissions. This means that, in aggregate, a low-carbon power system costs around the same as a high carbon alternative. (3/15)

Over 10 years ago, @ChemistryWorld started a project with the @NakedScientists (especially @Meera_Senthi) to tell the story of each chemical #element: The Chemistry in its Element #podcast. Let's look back for #IYPT2019. Here's @brianclegg with #hydrogen:

@ChemistryWorld @NakedScientists @Meera_Senthi @brianclegg The podcasts weren't published in atomic number order – we jumped around the #periodictable a bit – but here's @peterwothers getting grumpy about party balloons and the loss of the precious elemental resource: #Helium

#IYPT2019
#Lithium lubricates bearings & boosts batteries, but is also an important drug for depression and bipolar disorder. Nirvana sang about it in 1990 and, hot on their heels, Matt Wilkinson wrote a #podcast for @ChemistryWorld in 2009: chemistryworld.com/podcasts/lithi… #IYPT2019 #Mendeleev

We have just published our Review of Energy Policy: 2018!
Check out the thread below for a summary of all our recommendations.
Read the review in full here: bit.ly/2BsqDqf
On #Transport: The target for phasing our conventionally fuelled vehicles is inadequate. The @transportgovuk ‘Road to Zero’ (‘ICE ban 2040’) may neither hit the target nor make the early gains needed for a 1.5°C trajectory. @_chris_brand_ @jillian_anable
On #electricity: policy should build on Electricity Market Reform that has worked well & adapt in the light of technology/cost changes. Change in ‘black start’ incentives & other ancillary services are needed to ensure the system remains resilient @energyukcomms @ngcontrolroom

#Hydrogen #FCEV vehicles are very unlikely to become any kind of transport solution because they just don't make environmental or economic sense when compared to battery electric vehicles. #BEV
Hydrogen itself is just another fossil fuel as almost all of it is made from natural gas with carbon emissions as a significant byproduct. So the basic premise of the #FCEV is destroyed right there because it's just another fossil fuel car and not #Green at all.
The only other significant means of production is electrolysis which accounts for only 4% of all commercially available hydrogen fuel. It's used for only this tiny amount of production because it's massively inefficient, throwing away up to 75% of the electrical energy input.
