Sunday Solar Energy of Israel is the organization tasked with administering the investment of many photovoltaic solar cells that will be installed in Kibbutzim.

The initial cost of the plan is of NIS 500 million or $133 million USD. The project is expected to generate revenues for the communal settlements that will use the energy since the technology will allow them to store energy that can... See entire news item

 Paul Krugman, EconomistBy Richard Heinberg, Senior Fellow of Post Carbon Institute

In a New York Times op-ed published September 18 titled "Errors and Emissions," economist-columnist Paul Krugman took a swipe at my organization, Post Carbon Institute, lumping us together with the Koch brothers as purveyors of "climate despair." No, the Koch brothers are not in despair about the climate; apparently our shared error is that we say fighting climate change and growing the economy are incompatible. And, according to Krugman, a new report from the New Climate Economy Project (NCEP) and a working paper from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) show that the falling cost of renewable energy means this is happily not the case.

But in our view Krugman himself is guilty of five critical errors, and three equally serious omissions.... See entire blog item

People's Climate March, Sept 21, 2014 in NYC, USABy Ricken Patel, Exec. Director of Avaaz, co-organizers of People's Climate March 

Scientists are normally a pretty measured bunch. But in recent months, they've been resorting to some unusual language to get our attention. One top climatologist recently tweeted: "If even a small fraction of Arctic sea floor carbon is released to the atmosphere, we're f'd." When scientists start swearing in public, it is time for everyone to start worrying.
 
It's not just the scientists that are raising the alarm. This Sunday, hundreds of thousands of people are taking to the streets around the world in the largest climate mobilization in history. If they weren't listening before, our leaders should tune in now. The voice of global concern for action on climate change is back, and this time it's no longer an environmental issue, it's an everybody issue.
 
And time is short. The world is rushing towards a series of potentially catastrophic feedback loops and tipping points in the climate system, which could see the support system of life itself irrecoverably disrupted. From the release of gigantic amounts of arctic... See entire blog item

Financing a Greener House

With all of the focus on green technologies and efficient housing, many consumers are looking into ways to turn their existing home into a bold, eco-friendly statement. And, while that process is often an attractive one, it comes with a pretty large number of expenses and overall costs that can be hard for people to afford. That's especially true in economic times like the present, when words like "uncertainty" and "turmoil" dominate the headlines. Luckily, however, there are a few great programs to help finance these environmentally-friendly changes.

And, even better than excellent financing options, consumers will find many home improvements that are more simple and cost effective than they might have... See entire blog item

Bottom of containment vessel for new Vogtle plantThe Department of Energy wants to give the Southern Company a nuclear power loan guarantee at better interest rates than you can get on a student loan. And unlike a home mortgage, there may be no down payment. 

Why? 

The terms DOE is offering the builders of the Vogtle atomic reactors have only become partially public through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy. ... See entire blog item

Dump the Big Six (in United Kingdom)

Against a backdrop of widespread anger with Big Power in the UK, Ecotricity has launched its "Dump The Big Six" rallying call to ditch your badly behaved supplier and make Britain greener.

The Big Six (British Gas, EDF Energy, E.ON, Npower, Scottish & Southern, Scottish Power) have long enjoyed a carbon-fuelled chokehold the UK's energy, supplying 99% of customers. But is their grip crumbling?

Ecotricity founder Dale Vince OBE, the man credited with kick-starting the world's green electricity market, believes now is the moment to topple the grey giants and bring the UK into the renewable energy future.A cute viral video has been produced and it's just been uploaded on You Tube ...and here is the Facebook page created specifically for the campaign.

If you reduce your power usage, you can save money on the energy bill. If you decrease your power usage that means your lifestyle will also change, right? Wrong! There are many smart ways to save home energy that will not negatively affect your lifestyle, such as using one refrigerator, weatherizing the home, purchasing energy star-certified appliances, changing the rotation of your ceiling fan depending on the season, utilizing devices that are automated, and using low-wattage compact fluorescent bulbs.

Use One Refrigerator

One of the many smart ways to save home energy is to only use one refrigerator. Did you know that in the average American home, the refrigerator is responsible for using 15% of the house's energy consumption? It is both more energy-effici... See entire story

For almost as long as I can remember we have been saying that the United States, with 5 percent of the world's people, consumes a third or more of the earth's resources. That was true. It is no longer true. Today China consumes more basic resources than the United States does.

Among the key commodities such as grain, meat, oil, coal, and steel, China consumes more of each than the United States except for oil, where the United States still has a wide (though narrowing) lead. China uses a quarter more grain than the United States. Its meat consumption is double that of the United States. It uses three times as much coal and four times as much steel.

These numbers reflect national consumption, but what would happen if consumption per person in China were to catch up to... See entire blog item

Fukushima's radioactive fallout continues to spread throughout the archipelago, deep into the ocean and around the globe---including the US. It will ultimately impact millions, including many here in North America.
