    QUICK NEWS, May 2: Millenials, New Energy, And The Vote; The Sun In Brooklyn; Record Wind On The Great Plains

    Millenials, New Energy, And The Vote Millennials love clean energy, fear climate change, and don’t vote. This campaign wants to change that.

    David Roberts, April 30, 2016 (VOX)

    “…[Millennials born between 1980 and 2000…are, in many ways, an incredibly attractive political target. There's a lot of them, they lean Democrat, they are more concerned about climate change than older cohorts, and they absolutely love clean energy…The problem is, too few of them vote…[Youth voter turnout in presidential elections has fallen below 50 percent, and Baby Boomers now outvote their children's generation by 30 percentage points. [E]co-billionaire Tom Steyer’s] Super PAC, NextGen Climate, is launching a $25 million [national campaign to register and mobilize young voters in seven key battleground states to help elect climate champions…If recent history is any guide, a swing of a few percentage points in the millennial vote could shift [2016 swing state] senatorial and presidential elections…[And] 76 percent of 18‐29 year olds say climate change is a serious problem facing America…[63 percent call] it a very serious problem…[and] 64 percent say the federal government should do more to address climate change…” click here for more

    The Sun In Brooklyn Brooklyn residents create solar energy

    Joe Mauceri, April 27, 2016 (Pix 11 News)

    “…Most of us have no idea whether our energy comes from a power plant or a solar array…[But Bob Sauchelli, the first customer on the Brooklyn Microgrid, knows he] buys power directly from his neighbor's solar panels…Like many green energy customers, Sauchelli was already paying his energy company a premium for a renewable energy source, like wind or solar. The problem is, he couldn't see the positive economic and environmental effects first hand…Which is why Lawrence Orsini and LO3 energy created the Brooklyn Microgrid…In addition to helping keep money in the community, the microgrid could help supply power for local hospitals, fire departments, and grocery stores in the event of an emergency…Sauchelli says while green is good for the environment, he's happy to know he's also helping some green in his neighborhood too…” click here for more

    Record Wind On The Great Plains Wind energy setting records in Minnesota

    Paul Huttner, April 29, 2016 (Minnesota Public Radio)

    “...[April winds in the Midwest] have blown harder than average…with average wind speeds ranging from 12 to 15 mph and nearly half the days of the month producing peak wind gusts…[as high as] 40 and 50 mph…[They have been producing] unprecedented power production across the Upper Midwest…[On one November day, more than 50 percent of Xcel Energy’s] total energy output was produced by wind…[due to the strong winds and sophisticated new wind forecasting software allowing siting for increased production. It has allowed the ramping] down of coal plants at times of heavy wind production…[Data on the impact of climate change on wind speeds] seems to be inconclusive at this point…[The] question has not been comprehensively addressed by the atmospheric and climate science community yet…” click here for more
