The Litus Foundation was formed expressly to slow global warming and help living beings adapt to it.

Our Objectives

Slowing Global Heating

Doubling Fuel Efficiency


Global heating is increasing very rapidly.  We are between 1.1oC and 1.2oC warming now. The UK’s Met office projects, as do many other climate professionals, that 1.5oC warming, and start of irreversible runaway heating, could come within 4 to 10 years.  Urgent action is needed.

TECHNICAL: Litus is developing new, super-efficient uncooled engines, which don’t exist yet. They could use all available fuels including hydrogen, and would be suitable for all applications including vehicles, ships, aircraft, rail, and industrial equipment. Uncooled engines would have so many advantages that, once available the world is likely to quickly switch from cooled to uncooled engines, hereby cutting man-made CO2 by around 20%.

SOCIETAL: There has been virtually no progress on slowing global warming. Litus is advocating the immediate formation of a New Global Climate Agency with the sole mission to avoid irreversible runaway heating.
