    QUICK NEWS, May 26: OBAMA V. J. BUSH ON CLIMATE; EW ENERGY DOMINATED APRIL U.S. ENERGY; INTEL BUYS MINI-WIND

    OBAMA V. J. BUSH ON CLIMATE Barack Obama vs. Jeb Bush: The Climate Change Edition

    Michele Richinck, May 21, 2015 (Newsweek)

    “To President Barack Obama, climate change is a threat to national security. To Jeb Bush, a likely Republican presidential candidate, it's not clear how much humans are to blame for the Earth's fluctuating climate…While saying climate change hasn't necessarily caused conflicts around the world, [President Obama] noted that severe drought helped to create the instability in Nigeria that was exploited by Boko Haram, a militant Islamist group. And he said it's believed that drought, crop failures and high food prices played a part in fueling unrest in Syria…Bush hit back at the president, saying that…the issue shouldn't be ignored and that the Earth's climate is changing, but said research doesn't explicitly show the extent of human responsibility…Last year, the United Nations found the increasing threat of climate change will continue to grow if greenhouse gas emissions aren't brought under control…” click here for more

    NEW ENERGY DOMINATED APRIL U.S. ENERGY Renewable Energy Dominates Another Month: Wind + Solar = 100% Of New Capacity In Apri; Over 84% Of New U.S. Generating Capacity Year-To-Date Is From Renewables

    Ken Bossong, May 26, 2015 (Sun Day)

    “…[R]enewable energy sources once again dominate in the latest federal monthly update on new electrical generating capacity brought into service in the United States…[W]ind and solar accounted for all new generating capacity placed in-service in April…[W]ind, solar, geothermal, and hydropower combined have provided over 84 percent (84.1%) of the 1,900 MW of new U.S. electrical generating capacity placed into service during the first third of 2015. This includes 1,170 MW of wind (61.5%), 362 MW of solar (19.1%), 45 MW of geothermal steam (2.4%), and 21 MW of hydropower (1.1%). The balance (302 MW) was provided by five units of natural gas…Renewable energy sources now account for 17.05% of total installed operating generating capacity in the U.S…” click here for more

    INTEL BUYS MINI-WIND Intel catches the wind with rooftop micro-turbine array

    Pete Carey, May 21, 2015 (San Jose Mercury News)

    “Intel is turning the roof of its Santa Clara headquarters into a mini-wind farm with what it says is one of the largest micro-turbine arrays in the country…The V-shaped formation of 58 wind-powered [Zefr] turbines…is expected to generate about 65 kilowatt-hours of power that will be used to provide electricity to the conference center in the rambling Robert Noyce Building…The chipmaker called the micro-turbines a "proof of concept" project…The micro-turbines are 6 to 7 feet tall, weigh about 30 pounds each and are positioned at the roof's edge where they can gather the most [8mph to 9mph] wind…” click here for more
