Prof Julio Friedman of Columbia Univ, Senior Research Scholar at the Center for Global Energy Policy, and frequent speaker to government and advisory authorities recently published an article on the magnitude of industrial heat on GHG levels. Industrial emmissions comprise 10% of the 22% in the industrial GHG category. The creation of steel, glass, pavement, and other materials to build society draws upon massive energy needs (furnaces running 24hours, heat transfer with heavy machinery and pressure systems, etc). Efficiency systems, renewables, and other technology advancements have not reached this area like practices in EV and home. Great article and very interesting to say the least.
