    Bernie And The Science Guy Talk Climate Change Watch Bernie Sanders & Bill Nye Explain Why You Have To Care About Climate Change

    Natasha Guzman, February 27, 2017 (Bustle)

    “…[A new Bernie Sanders-Bill Nye climate change conversation (video below) will help explain it to deniers and the uneducated. The] senator asked Nye to address those who insist that the earth's recent warming is part of a natural cycle the planet has always experienced, as well as their assertion that the scientific community has yet to reach a clear consensus on the topic. Nye [said] that 97 percent of scientific research concludes that the earth is indeed undergoing the unnatural, harmful process of climate change…[and] criticized Fox News anchors for continually spreading the impression of division among researchers…[Nye also] explained the cognitive dissonance of those who deny climate in the face of undeniable evidence…[His] description of the consequences that inaction can lead to are chilling…[Throughout the conversation, Nye argued people who don't want to work toward battling climate change can be convinced to join the cause if they're shown that renewable energy — and other environmental efforts — would have a positive effect on the economy…” click here for more

    The Great Wind Deal Will Get Better Wind Energy Will See More Tech Breakthroughs, Falling Costs, Experts Predict

    Jeff McMahon, February 27, 2017 (Forbes)

    “…[Research and experts agree] wind energy will continue to get cheaper toward 2030 and beyond…[Technological advancements that have yet to be implemented suggest] that wind energy is not as mature a technology as its slowly evolving turbines make it appear…Experts anticipate a wide range of advancements that will [reduced onshore wind up-front costs,] increase project performance, extend project design lives, and lower operational expenses. Offshore wind has even greater opportunities for cost reduction, though there are larger uncertainties…[E]xperts predicted on-shore wind energy would see cost reductions of about 35 percent by 2050. The cost of offshore wind would drop 38 percent to 41 percent, they predicted…” click here for more

    Is Solar Plus EVs The Answer To Climate Change? Electric cars and cheap solar 'could halt fossil fuel growth by 2020'; Solar power and clean cars are ‘gamechangers’ consistently underestimated by big energy, says Imperial College and Carbon Tracker report

    2 February 2017 (UK Guardian)

    “Falling costs of electric vehicles and solar panels could halt worldwide growth in demand for oil and coal by 2020……[The latest cost reduction projections for the green technologies and countries’ pledges to cut emissions could make solar power and electric vehicles ‘gamechangers’ that] take 10% of market share from fossil fuels within a decade, according to Expect The Unexpected; The Disruptive Power of Low Carbon Technologies. U.S. coal collapsed when it lost 10% loss of its market share and…[an 8% renewables growth caused Europe’s five major utilities to lose] €100bn (£85bn) between 2008 and 2013…[Big energy companies’ business as usual scenarios serious underestimate this transition, the study argues, because solar] could supply 23% of global power generation by 2040 and 29% by 2050…By 2035, electric vehicles could make up 35% of the road transport market, and two-thirds by 2050…Under such a scenario, coal and oil demand could peak in 2020…” click here for more
