    CLIMATE CHANGE SABOTAGE How Climate Change Deniers Are Trying to Derail the Paris Talks; The GOP is making its presence felt at the conference.

    Jonathan M. Katz, December 8, 2015 (Mother Jones)

    “…To troll [the last week of the Paris climate talks], the climate change deniers at the Heartland Institute…[staged] a ‘counter-conference’…While there are intense arguments about how to address climate change, there is no real debate among scientists about the core facts: Human contributions to the greenhouse effect are making the Earth hotter, which is bad for life. We can already see it happening…Which is probably why the denial event drew such a paltry crowd…[And yet, top EU negotiator, Spain's Miguel Arias Cañete, signaled that he is giving up fighting for an international agreement because of] the US GOP…[C]limate negotiators here know better than anyone that the Republican Congress will not approve any climate change deal President Barack Obama puts in front of them…[C]limate change deniers seem confident they're having an effect on the deal, and by extension the future of the planet...[At the Heartland conference, Sen. Jim Inhofe, the chair of the US Senate Environment and Public Works committee, gloated] that the Paris talks would fail…” click here for more

    BLOOMBERG IN BIG PRIVATE WIND BUY EDPR, Bloomberg Announce N.Y.'s Largest Corporate Wind Energy Buy

    8 December 2015 (North American Windpower)

    “…[EDP Renewables] secured a 20-year power purchase agreement from Bloomberg LP, a global business and financial information company, for 20 MW of wind power that will be used to offset the energy use of Bloomberg's New York offices…According to the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the deal is the largest wind energy purchase by a corporation on record in New York State…Bloomberg has agreed to buy over 25% of the energy generated by the 79 MW Arkwright Summit wind project in Chautauqua County, N.Y. The project will feature 44 wind turbines…The Arkwright Summit project is located less than 30 miles from the retired BPU Jamestown Coal Plant, one of more than 205 U.S. coal-fired power plants that have been retired in the past five years as part of the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign, in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies…Coupled with previously announced renewable energy projects, Bloomberg will power 51% of its New York State energy needs from clean energy sources once the Arkwright Summit project is complete…” click here for more

    THE HOUSE THAT SOLAR WORKS FOR Find out if your house is a good candidate for solar energy; Sun, space and location can determine if your home can be updated with solar panels.

    Lina Bradford, December 8, 2015 (C/NET)

    “…Not every home is the ideal candidate for a solar energy update…Here are some tips to help you decide if solar energy is a viable option for your home…Check with Google’s [ Project Sunroof ]to see if the house has unobstructed access to the sun's rays for most or all of the day…[Or] go outside and check a few times throughout the day…Next, find out how many days of sun your area of the country gets per year…[with] solar maps provided by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory…[Also, if your only available roof area for solar panels is north-facing] your home may not be a good candidate…Check to see if you have enough room for the panels you need…[to get the] electricity you use…If you feel confident that your home is a good candidate, it is time to contact a professional…” click here for more
