    QUICK NEWS, October 10: Parties Divided On What Climate Scientists Know – Poll; Florida Solar Fight Outlined; Colorado Regulators, Stakeholders Approve New Wind Build

    Parties Divided On What Climate Scientists Know – Poll Clinton, Trump supporters worlds apart on views of climate change and its scientists

    Brian Kennedy, October 10, 2016 (Pew Research Center)

    “Supporters of Hillary Clinton are far more likely than those of Donald Trump to be concerned about climate change, to believe climate change is mostly the result of human activity, to say a range of policy and individual actions can be effective in addressing climate change and to think scientists understand climate change, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis…About half of Clinton supporters (51%) say climate scientists understand very well whether or not climate change is occurring compared with just 17% of Trump supporters who believe that…[They] are similarly divided over whether climate scientists understand the causes of climate change: 41% of Clinton supporters say climate scientists understand this very well compared with 15% of Trump supporters…Few voters give climate scientists high marks for understanding the best ways to address climate change. About a third of Clinton supporters (32%) and just one-in-ten Trump supporters (10%) say climate scientists understand the ways to address climate change…” click here for more

    Florida Solar Fight Outlined How Florida Residents May Lose The Battle For Attainable Solar Energy

    Curtis Silver, October 10, 2016 (Forbes)

    “…[An amendment on Florida’s November ballot may threaten the future of solar power in the state. To make solar affordable, many states allow] customers to lease the panels through a third-party and sell excess electricity back to the utility grid…Florida is one of five states that does not allow…[ Amendment #1 would allow this but] would also give the current utility companies the right to compensate for their solar losses by adding new fees to solar consumers’ [non-existent] bills. This could lead to a quick death for the future of solar power…[The utility companies] don’t want consumers hopping off the grid and harnessing and storing their own energy…[According to the Florida Department of State Division of Elections site, energy companies account for 80% of the $21 million spent to support this amendment, including] Duke Energy, FPL, Koch, Exxon Mobil, TECO, NRECA and Gulf Power…[The shortcoming of the amendment is that it actually gives solar owners no real access to third party financing and it allows the utilities to charge new fees that could] negate any savings from going full solar…” click here for more

    Colorado Regulators, Stakeholders Approve New Wind Build Big Colorado wind power project wins approval

    October 1, 2106 (The Daily Progress)

    “…[A 300 turbine, 600 MW wind installation and a 90-mile transmission line, which would be one of the biggest U.S. wind electric power projects, has] won approval from the Colorado Public Utilities Commission…[The PUC gave its approval after Xcel Energy and a large number of local government agencies] reached an agreement…[The Rush Creek] project will likely cost as much as $1.1 billion and it is expected to eliminate a million tons of carbon emissions compared with other energy sources…Rush Creek could have the transmission capacity to move up to 2,000 megawatts of renewable energy from that part of Colorado…Progressive 15, an economic development group promoting northeastern Colorado, said wind energy is becoming a major part of Colorado's rural economy…The Independence Institute, which criticized the project, said Xcel Energy has already met its renewable energy targets set by the state and doesn't need more generation capacity…[Other critics] said regulators are rushing the project without a detailed analysis of whether ratepayers will benefit…[Electricity from Rush Creek] is expected to start flowing in late 2018.” click here for more
