    QUICK NEWS, January 16: What Would Dr. King Do About Climate Change?; U.S. To Export Natural Gas; Where Corporates Are Boosting New Energy

    What Would Dr. King Do About Climate Change? Faith leaders reframe climate change as moral issue

    Marion Renault, January 16, 2017 (Columbus Dispatch)

    "…[Would Martin Luther King have joined the fight against climate change? Faith-based] advocacy has emerged as a powerful tool in the environmental movement. By reframing climate change and sustainability as moral issues, [priests, pastors, ministers, imams, and rabbis] hope to advance environmentalism by elevating it above the political fray…Presenting climate change as a [moral and] spiritual issue could be a successful strategy for attracting religious folks to environmental causes…[E]xploitation of natural resources severely affects the world’s poorest populations and violates divine dictates on how people should treat the planet.. [As leaders of intimate community spaces, religious officials’ thinking about the human-rights implications of climate change might well have appealed to Dr. King]…” click here for more

    U.S. To Export Natural Gas EIA's AEO2017 projects the United States as a net energy exporter in most cases

    January 5, 2017 (U.S. Energy Information Administration)

    “…[The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) Annual Energy Outlook 2017 (AEO2017)] presents updated projections for U.S. energy markets through 2050 based on eight cases (Reference, Low and High Economic Growth, Low and High Oil Price, Low and High Oil and Gas Resource and Technology, No Clean Power Plan implementation). This is the first time that EIA is publishing projections through 2050…The United States becomes a net energy exporter in most AEO2017 cases as petroleum liquid imports fall and natural gas exports rise…In all cases but the High Oil and Gas Resource Technology case, which assumes substantial improvements in production technology and more favorable resource availability, U.S. production declines in the 2030s, which slows or reverses projected growth in net energy exports…[All cases except the No Clean Power Plan case include the Clean Power Plan and energy] related carbon dioxide emissions decline [in all but] the No Clean Power Plan case…”

    Where Corporates Are Boosting New Energy Which States Make It Easy for the Advancement of Renewable Energy?

    John Rogers, January 14, 2017 (EcoWatch)

    “…[The top states for making corporate renewables purchases easy are Iowa and Illinois but New Jersey, California, and Texas round out the top five. No one region has a lock on making corporate renewables purchases easy. But some regions do better, according to the] Corporate clean energy procurement index: State leadership and rankings…The Northeast, Midwest, and Mid-Atlantic regions are generally the most favorable regions in the U.S. for corporate customers seeking to power their operations with renewable energy…The analysis assesses how much choice and competition for renewable energy purchases exist by state. One indicator of that is whether companies are allowed to enter into PPAs (power purchase agreements) with third parties, which let companies take advantage of the stable prices renewables are uniquely qualified to offer, to lock in electricity rates over the long term…[The authors also suggest how to] help businesses trying to get access to renewable energy…”
