    QUICK NEWS, May 23: Human-Caused Changes Threaten A Third Of Bird Species With Extinction; Attack On Wind Linked to Oil Industry Money; Solar Plus Storage Multi-tasking To Cut Costs

    Human-Caused Changes Threaten A Third Of Bird Species With Extinction Third of North American Birds Said to Face Extinction Due to Climate Change, Other Man-Made Factors

    Michael Edison Hayden, May 22, 2016 (ABC News)

    “…37 percent of all migratory bird species on the continent are at risk of extinction due to a myriad of harmful environmental factors including climate change, sea-level rise, land development and oil spills…[including 432 most at risk of extinction without significant conservation actions of the 1,154 native species of birds in Canada, the U.S., and Mexico, as ranked by The State of North America’s Birds 2016 from the North American Bird Conservation Initiative, with a score of 14 out 20 or higher] or with a concern score of 13 and a steeply declining population trend…Some of the birds that received a score of 20, the highest possible, included the California condor, the imperial woodpecker, and the Florida scrub-jay…Concern about a "mass extinction event" as a result of climate change and other man-made factors has risen in recent years…[ A widely cited paper suggests that the Earth had entered a new epoch] causing radical shifts to our planet…” click here for more

    Attack On Wind Linked to Oil Industry Money Big Oil Cheerleader Robert Bryce Predictably Misleads On Wind Energy And Eagle Deaths In WSJ

    Andres Seifter, May 16, 2016 (MediaMatters)

    …[A May 6 Daily Kos post warned the Wall Street Journal would soon publish work from oil industry advocate Robert Bryce attacking revisions to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) regulations governing wind energy and bald and golden eagles…[On May 15, Bryce attacked, but] as the Daily Kos piece explained, wind turbines are responsible for only ‘about 3 percent of human-caused eagle deaths’ and that other factors -- including the oil and gas industry and climate change -- are a much greater threat to birds than wind energy…[Bryce is] a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, which has received millions of dollars from oil interests over the years, including $800,000 from ExxonMobil and $1.9 million from a foundation run by the oil billionaire Koch brothers…” click here for more

    Solar Plus Storage Multi-tasking To Cut Costs Storing The Sun’s Energy Just Got A Whole Lot Cheaper

    Joe Romm, May 18, 2016 (Climate Progress)

    “With prices dropping rapidly for both renewables and battery storage, the economics of decarbonizing the grid are changing faster than most policymakers, journalists, and others realize…[A solar plus storage system based on lithium-ion batteries makes economic sense through revenue stacking. It can stack or combine multiple revenue sources like frequency regulation for a system operator, adjusting local power quality without other expensive new infrastructure, and reducing peak mid-day demand charges for the customers it serves. Battery prices have come down by a factor of three in the last few years, expanding available opportunities. This is] the dawn of a revolution that will enable lithium-ion batteries to play a larger and larger role in [making New Energy] more unstoppable than ever…” click here for more
