    QUICK NEWS, June 19: More Artists Join The Climate Fight; U.S. Power Just Hit 10% Wind And Solar; The Dangers Of Oil And Gas Drilling, Detailed

    More Artists Join The Climate Fight Mainers hope their artwork can help lobbyists’ effort to combat climate change; Work from a Canton and Winslow artist is featured in a conference in Washington, D.C., devoted to public awareness of global warming.

    Kate McCormick, June 18, 2017 (Morning Sentinel via Press Herald)

    “…[A]rtist Laurie Sproul found herself deeply frustrated as she searched for ways that she, as an individual, could take action against what she saw as the impending threat of climate change…[I]n the middle of a snowstorm, she and her mother trekked to a climate change conference…[and connected with the Citizens’ Climate Lobby, which lobbies] members of Congress…Sproul now volunteers with the Citizens’ Climate Lobby, helping them use art to start conversations…[She hopes] her art can help break down barriers to discussions on climate change…By all appearances, there is little executive or legislative will to act on climate change, but behind the scenes the Citizens’ Climate Lobby has been successfully working to build consensus around the group’s carbon fee and dividend proposal, which proponents say is the most effective, market-friendly, bipartisan and fair approach to curbing carbon emissions…” click here for more

    U.S. Power Just Hit 10% Wind And Solar Wind and solar in March accounted for 10% of U.S. electricity generation for first time

    June 14, 2017 (U.S. Energy Information Administration)

    "For the first time, monthly electricity generation from wind and solar (including utility-scale plants and small-scale systems) exceeded 10% of total electricity generation in the United States, based on March data…[W]ind and solar made up 7% of total U.S. electric generation in 2016…[It follows seasonal and geographic] patterns…Based on seasonal patterns in recent years, electricity generation from wind and solar will probably exceed 10% of total U.S. generation again in April 2017, then fall to less than 10% in the summer months. Since 2014, when EIA first began estimating monthly, state-level electricity generation from small-scale solar photovoltaic systems, combined wind and solar generation has reached its highest level in either the spring or fall…” click here for more

    The Dangers Of Oil And Gas Drilling, Detailed Study of oil and gas drilling finds pollution and connections to earthquakes; Fracking pollutes, causes quakes, new analysis says

    Davin Hunn, June 18, 2017 (Houston Chronicle)

    "Oil and gas drilling in Texas shale plays pollutes the air, erodes soil and contaminates water, while the disposal of millions of gallons of wastewater causes earthquakes, a consortium of the state's top scientists concluded…In the most comprehensive analysis of the environmental and social impacts of drilling and hydraulic fracturing, The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas found that the shale oil boom that delivered so much prosperity to Texas also has degraded natural resources, overwhelmed small communities and even boosted the frequency and severity of traffic collisions as workers and equipment rush to oil fields. Fracking, which uses a high-pressured concoction of water, sand and chemicals to free oil and gas from dense shale rock, is also spreading rapidly across Texas, [Environmental and Community Impacts of Shale Development in Texas] noted… click here for more
