    CLIMATE CHANGE, THE LOG LINE Communicating the consensus on climate change

    Sam Illingworth, August 10, 2015 (PhysOrg)

    “…Climate Change is happening, global warming is real, our planet is changing irrevocably, and it is almost entirely our fault. This is not an opinion or a provocation; this is scientific fact, agreed upon by approximately 97 % of climate scientists…But then there's this equally unavoidable fact. According to the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, in 2014, only 44% of Americans said they thought global warming is both happening and human caused. Without the public accepting the [facts, it is] far less likely to want to accept climate change mitigation policies, such as the recent Obama Clean Power Plan…One of the key findings of [a recent study] was that members of the general public were more likely to correctly estimate scientific agreement when presented with quantitative rather than qualitative statements...It is unlikely that a single exposure to a scientific agreement message will result in complete belief updating; however, … simple clear messages, repeated often, by a variety of trusted sources is an effective framework for public communication…” click here for more

    WIND BOOM DRIVES DOWN COST Energy Department Reports Highlight Trends of Growing U.S. Wind Energy Industry; New Installations Usher in Lowest Wind Energy Prices to Date

    August 10, 2015 (U.S. Department of Energy)

    “…[T]he U.S. wind energy industry continued growing at an impressive rate in 2014, further solidifying America’s position as a global leader in wind energy. Wind power is a key component of the President’s all-of-the-above energy strategy and Clean Power Plan to reduce climate-changing carbon pollution, diversify our energy economy, and boost America’s economic competitiveness…With rapidly increasing wind energy generation, fast-growing demand, and steadily decreasing wind energy prices—the lowest ever seen in the United States— the U.S. wind energy market remains strong…According to the 2014 Wind Technologies Market Report…total installed wind power capacity in the United States grew at a rate of eight percent in 2014 and now stands at nearly 66 gigawatts (GW), which ranks second in the world and meets 4.9 percent of end-use electricity demand in an average year. The United States was the global leader in total wind energy production in 2014. The report also finds that wind energy prices are at an all-time low and are competitive with wholesale power prices and traditional power sources across many areas of the United States…” click here for more

    OFFICIAL GUIDE TO SOLAR SEIA Unveils Consumer Guide to Solar Power; Free guide offers one-stop shop to better understand the basics of solar energy, ownership August 10, 20154 (The News) “…[T]he first SEIA Residential Consumer Guide to Solar Power… offers those interested in solar power a one-stop shop to better understand the basics of solar energy and ownership options and includes key questions to ask solar installers before entering a transaction. The guide is a result of a joint effort of the leading companies across the solar industry and complements [the Solar Energy Industry Association (SEIA)] existing code of ethics by which all SEIA members abide…[T]he residential solar market is growing at a record-breaking pace. According to the newly released U.S. Solar Market Insight report Q1 2015, the market segment increased 76 percent from this time last year. By 2016, industry projections forecast enough clean solar energy in the U.S. to power 8 million homes…One of the components of the consumer guide is a section…devoted solely to potential problem resolution…” click here for more
