Home Research Climate & Energy Articles Planes, Trains, and Automobiles PLANES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES How we estimated emissions from vehicle travel. (@ClarkWDerry) on February 8, 2008 at 10:00 am We’ve gotten a few questions already about how we came up with our charts on the climate-warming impacts of travel choices.  The charts compare the global warming impacts of cars, SUVs, vanpools, planes, buses, and trains.  And since I couldn’t find a single, unified data source for all of that—at least, not one that I couldn’t poke some holes in—I compiled our figure from scratch, using a bunch of different sources. So in case you’re the sort of person who gets excited about numbers and footnotes, there’s plenty—plenty, I say—of data wonkery to follow… Find this article interesting? Please consider making a gift to support our work. First off:  the data for these charts represent mid-point estimates for both direct and indirect climate-warming emissions from travel.  They do include an estimate for carbon dioxide emissions from extracting, transporting, and refining crude oil, as well as emissions of trace climate-warming gases in vehicle exhaust.  The air travel emissions also include the effects of contrails, cirrus cloud seeding, and other wacky airplane stuff.  But the estimates don’t include emissions from vehicle construction and maintenance, or any of the life-cycle emissions related to building roads and parking lots, insurance company operations, etc.  Including these other life-cycle emissions would push up the totals a bit, but probably not enormously.

Jul 10, 2020 ... It also allows people to access different data sets for “fault detection” on machines like wind turbines, train bogeys, gearboxes and other data sets. Welcome to USA TODAY NETWORK’S EUROPEAN UNION EXPERIENCE Foxconn launches iAI Institute aimed to train people in industrial artificial intelligence Ricardo Torres Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Published 2:44 PM EDT Jul 10, 2020 Foxconn has positions in Milwaukee, Racine, Mount Pleasant and Madison, for people with a background in either engineering, manufacturing or software technology. Mike De Sisti and Jim Nelson / Milwaukee Journal Sentinel The Foxconn Technology Group is getting in the online education game.   On Friday Foxconn launched the iAI Institute “an initiative focused on training the workforce of tomorrow and sharing Industrial AI knowledge across industries.”  The iAI Institute plans to help train people in industrial artificial intelligence. Individuals can watch online lectures or companies can purchase course packages using “points” although it is unclear as to how someone can collect points.  It also allows people to access different data sets for “fault detection” on machines like wind turbines, train bogeys, gearboxes and other data sets. A competition has also been started by Foxconn on the iAI Institute website  to find the best way to estimate the remaining useful life (RUL) of the cutting tools. FULL COVERAGE: Foxconn in Wisconsin The institute will be lead by Keyi Sun who ran the Lighthouse Academy for Foxconn World Economic Forum's Lighthouse smart manufacturing training activities.   “The iAI Institute’s vision is to transform skill sets that will share the workplace and redefine the skills required in the global competition for jobs,” Sun said.
