Climate change threat to Hawaii: Ocean acidification CO2 going up above the ocean and in the ocean pH going down in the upper ocean - becoming more acidic Observational results from Station Aloha (Dore et al., 2009) October 8, 2009 www.uhero.hawaii.edu/eggs 9

Climate change threat to Hawaii: Ecosystem collapse  A Pteropod after 48 hours of living low pH ocean conditions (e is a control)  Pteropods contribute to the diet of diverse carnivorous zooplankton, myctophid and nototheniid fishes, North Pacific salmon, mackerel, herring, cod and baleen whales.

Hawaii addressing climate change: ACT 234 - Hawaii’s Global Warming Solutions Act  Second state in the country to enact GHG regulations – June 2007  10 member task force developing plan to meet 1990 GHG levels by 2020  Report GHG work plan to Legislature by end of 2010  Department of Health is in charge  On January 1, 2012: Rules and regulatory scheme go into effe ct October 8, 2009 www.uhero.hawaii.edu/eggs 11

Energy & Greenhouse Gas Solutions: Mission  To analyze and tailor energy and climate change policy by assessing technology options and the associated environmental and economic impacts. October 8, 2009 www.uhero.hawaii.edu/eggs 13

EGGS: Core Goals 1. Engage in rigorous analysis and establish a global research reputation. 2. Develop and maintain data and models on Hawai’i energy, economy, and resulting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. 3. Showcase Hawai’i solutions that demonstrate a sustainable alternative for others. 4. Develop solution-based education and outreach programs on energy and GHG solutions for a variety of levels (legislators, business community, and K-12). October 8, 2009 www.uhero.hawaii.edu/eggs 14

GHG Emissions Accounting: An example equation  CO2 emissions = Af,h * Fc,h * Fox* (44/12)  Af,h : heat content of fuel consumed (GJ converted from therms or million BTU)  Fc,h : Carbon content of fuel on a heating value basis (15.3 kg C/GJ)  Fox : Oxidation factor to account for fraction of carbon in fuel that remains as soot or ash  (44/12) : Ratio of the molecular weight of CO2 to that of carbon Source: WRI GHG Protocol October 8, 2009 www.uhero.hawaii.edu/eggs 19

Hawaii GHG Profile Conclusions  Act 234 emissions have increased by about 23 % from 1990 to 2005  Per dollar output, Hawai‘i is more GHG intensive in 2005 than in 1990 although per capita is down  Power and transport account for about 70% of all GHG emissions  Ground transportation contributes about 20 percent and is growing rapidly October 8, 2009 www.uhero.hawaii.edu/eggs 20

Rationale: Tourism’s Role in Hawaii’s Economy  $11.4 billion, in 2008  $1,700 per person, per trip spending  18% of Gross State Product, current dollars  10% of all civilian jobs Statewide in 2003  6.8 million visitor arrivals  64 million visitor days  High stakes for Hawaii economy DBEDT
