    QUICK NEWS, May 24: Portland, Ore, Bans Climate Change Denial From Science Classes; Wind Hits 100%-Plus Of Aussie State’s Power For 10 Hours

    Portland, Ore, Bans Climate Change Denial From Science Classes Portland School System Bans Teaching Materials That Cast Doubt on Climate Change

    Eric Chaney, May 23, 2016 (The Weather Channel)

    …Last week, the Portland Public School board unanimously passed a resolution which directs schools to ‘abandon the use of any adopted text material that is found to express doubt about the severity of the climate crisis or its root in human activities.’ …The resolution broadly calls for all Portland schools to ‘develop an implementation plan for climate literacy.’…Climate literacy is essential for the success of Portland Public Schools students, the resolution says, both as members of their communities and citizens of the world…Teaching climate change isn't always easy. A survey conducted by Science Magazine in 2014 found that although more than 95 percent of active climate scientists attribute recent global warming to human causes, only about half of U.S. adults believe the same thing…” click here for more

    Wind Hits 100%-Plus Of Aussie State’s Power For 10 Hours Wind energy hits 100% of South Australia demand on Sunday

    Giles Parkinson, 24 May 2016 (RE New Economy)

    “…[On May 22, the wind energy-generated electricity supply met South Australia’s electricity] demand for more than 10 hours, from 1.40am to just before midday (11.55am), with a peak of 120 per cent of demand at 4.30am…[It is 40 per cent of the state’s installed capacity, but] with more wind energy projects in the pipeline that could more than double the current capacity, [there is a growing] need for more inter-connectors to other states…[W]hat’s interesting to watch is the comparison between South Australia and Queensland, the other state most reliant on gas as the marginal cost of generation…While gas is used to fill in the gaps between wind and solar in South Australia, it is used in Queensland to fill the gaps between the output of coal and system demand, minus the input of 1.5GW of rooftop solar. Queensland, apart from a few biomass power plants, has no large-scale renewable energy generation…In the past two weeks, South Australia’s average daily price has been cheaper than Queensland’s on eight days out of 14…” click here for more
