EPA Could Require Houston-area Coal Plant to Reduce Emissions Contributing to Deadly Air Pollution
When sulfur from coal-fired plants is left unscrubbed, Rice faculty scholar Daniel Cohan said, it enters the air and turns into sulfate particles, which combine with other chemical particles to make up particulate matter, the deadliest air pollutant.
Will the Texas Power Grid Survive the Next Deep Freeze?
Despite freezing temperatures in Texas, wind production has increased, making up for diminished coal and gas production. Rice faculty scholar Daniel Cohan said this offset was another “great sign that the grid performed better than it had in 2021.”
Why Gas Stoves Matter to the Climate – and the Gas Industry
Gas stoves emit only a tiny share of the greenhouse gases that warm the climate. Why then have they assumed such a heated role in climate politics? Baker Institute Rice faculty scholar Daniel Cohan explains in an article for The Conversation.
