So for those who are curious I’m loving the new job. Yes I’m looking at piles of draft legislation and emissions data so there is some not so exciting parts to it, but I’m also working with some very intelligent people who appear to be on the right track. If only we could get any level of government to finish some legislation so we can get on with the business of planning a response to it. Right now it’s like trying to plan on who to walk across quicksand, the rules keep changing ever second or two and your scared you are going to be pulled under if you chose wrong.
Perhaps the one thing that is exciting me the most about the job was apparently I can on at a good time. Upper management is looking for ideas for the shorter term to reduce emissions and produce power. They also realize that you can’t really discount anything at this stage, so it’s an open field to push any crazy ideas anyone within the group has to cut CO2 emissions. Anything goes at this stage regardless of how crazy of an idea it is.
So I’ve decided to see what all of you think. Yep that’s right, I want you all to tell me what you would do if you were faced with an increasing demand for power and CO2 emissions targets that would fully kick in by 2020 (reducing CO2 emission by 20 to 32%). What would you like to see done? Plug me any ideas you have and I’ll pass them along.
