    QUICK NEWS, June 13: Climate Change Denial Is No Accident; The Phase Change To New Energy Is At Hand; Charging Cars With Solar-Powered Leafs

    Climate Change Denial Is No Accident Biggest US coal company funded dozens of groups questioning climate change; Analysis of Peabody Energy court documents show company backed trade groups, lobbyists and thinktanks dubbed ‘heart and soul of climate denial’

    Suzanne Goldenberg and Helena Bengsston, 13 June 2016 (UK Guardian)

    “Peabody Energy, America’s biggest coalmining company, has funded at least two dozen groups that cast doubt on manmade climate change and oppose environment regulations, analysis by the Guardian reveals…The funding spanned trade associations, corporate lobby groups, and industry front groups as well as conservative think-tanks and was exposed in court filings last month…The coal company also…[funded] twice as many Republican groups as Democratic ones…[The now bankrupt Peabody, the] world’s biggest private sector publicly traded coal company, was long known as an outlier even among fossil fuel companies for its public rejection of climate science and action…[Environmental groups say the breadth of the funding of denial] took them by surprise…[B]ankruptcy filings from the country’s second-biggest coal company, Arch Coal Inc, revealed funding to a group known mainly for its unsuccessful lawsuit against the climate scientist Michael Mann…” click here for more

    The Phase Change To New Energy Is At Hand Renewable Energy Is Now Inevitable, Energy Secretary Says, Citing Price

    Jeff McMahon, June 3, 2016 (Forbes)

    “Climate change may have inspired the clean-energy revolution, but [the plunging prices in solar, wind and efficient innovations like LED lighting have and making it ‘inevitable,’ according to] Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz…[He added that a ‘phase change’ is coming, after which] clean energy will be the norm…[Indicators he cited include] Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) in the range of 3¢ to 4¢ per kilowatt hour for wind and solar energy…[putting the levelized cost of energy for wind at] 3.2¢, solar at 4.3¢, natural gas at 5.2¢ and coal at 6.5¢…[To describe the inevitability, Secretary Moniz quoted CEO Tom Fanning of notoriously conservative utility Southern Company that it is not possible to ‘keep the waves off the beach…’” click here for more

    Charging Cars With Solar-Powered Leafs Artificial Leaf Converts Solar Energy To Fuel That May One Day Power Your Car

    Katherine Derla, 4 June 2016 (Tech Times)

    “Researchers developed an ‘artificial leaf’ that [uses photosynthesis to transform solar energy] into liquid fuels. And this new technology can one day power your vehicles…[They have] demonstrated not just how the new solar power system can produce usable fuels but also its impressive efficiency…[Despite challenges, a] past model of the bionic leaf was able to produce isopropanol using solar energy…[The new model bionic leaf 2.0 increases] its efficiency level dramatically…[It can transform solar energy into biomass with an efficiency rate of 10 percent, which is 10 times the 1 percent among the fastest-growing] plant species…[It] can also create isopentanol, isobutanol and a bio-plastic precursor called PHB…” click here for more
