    QUICK NEWS, May 29: 100 Things To Do About The Climate; Hints About The DOE Grid Study Emerging; Farmers, Tree Huggers Unite Behind Wind

    100 Things To Do About The Climate 100 Practical Ways to Reverse Climate Change; You know some of them—use renewable energy, eat less meat—but others will surprise you.

    Simon Worrall, May 28, 2017 (National Geographic)

    “…Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming [brings] together geologists, engineers, agronomists, climatologists, biologists, botanists, economists, financial analysts, architects, NGOs, activists, and other experts…[and offers 100 actionable] solutions to reverse global warming…[Hawken says the tendency has been] to silver bullet the problem, which is to look for the big solution…[which leaves out] a great number of salient, important solutions…[One of Hawken’s favorites is repopulating the mammoth steppe, the subarctic region that used to stretch from Alaska across Europe to Russia, with animals that were originally there to reduce the temperature of the soil in the subarctic and enhance the ability of that area to retain its permafrost…” click here for more

    Hints About The DOE Grid Study Emerging What We Know So Far About Rick Perry’s Power Grid “Study”

    Jim Marston, May 26, 2017 (Environmental Defense Fund Blog)

    “…[Many are concerned that Secretary of Energy Rick Perry’s 60-day] ‘study’ of whether any policies or regulations have led to the premature retirement of coal or nuclear plants…60 days is barely enough time to fill job vacancies in a new administration, much less conduct a thorough analysis of America’s complex energy policies…Perry’s coal propaganda has nothing to do with reliability and everything to do with giving the pollution industry what it wants. The ‘grid reliability’ angle is a ruse, and one Perry used a decade ago when he tried to fast track new coal plants in Texas. This issue has been studied relentlessly by grid operators and government agencies around the country, and the grid is handling coal’s decline just fine. The Trump administration is using the reliability argument as cover to distract the American people from their close ties with the coal industry…[Perry’s] Chief of Staff, who will manage the study, worked for the Edison Electric Institute – where he led its anti-solar campaign…” click here for more

    Farmers, Tree Huggers Unite Behind Wind Wind Energy Unites Enviros And Farmers

    Gregory Dennis, May 28, 2017 (Vermont Digger)

    “…[Environmentalists] put a priority on preventing damage to the ecosystems that support us. Property rights [advocates remind] us that there should be limits to what the government can force owners to do…But as Vermont moves haltingly toward cleaner energy, ‘Greens’ and some property rights advocates, especially farmers, now find themselves on the same side…[Both oppose regulatory constraints on sound levels of] wind turbines…[Greens want to push the state rapidly toward its 90% renewables by 2050 goal and farmers and others want to be able to erect low-noise wind turbines to meet their energy needs…A group of 40 farms last year called on Vermont officials to protect property owners’ rights to install solar and other energy…Wind already employs over 325 workers in Vermont and could provide many more jobs if there’s a market…” click here for more
