    New Antarctica Melting Could Mean Deeper Waters Massive Crack in Larsen C Ice Shelf Grew 11 Miles in 6 Days

    Lorraine Chow, 1 June 2017 (EcoWatch)

    "The widening crack in Antarctica's Larsen C Ice Shelf has grown even longer. An iceberg the size of Delaware is now precariously hanging on to the main ice shelf by 8 miles of ice…[T]he rift lengthened by another 11 miles between May 25 and May 31 2017…Until recently, the crack was running parallel to the edge of the ice shelf but it took a ‘significant’ turn towards the ocean…[T]wo previous sections of the Larsen ice shelf have broken off and disappeared into the sea. Larsen A collapsed in 1995. Then in 2002, Larsen B began to rapidly break apart. Within six weeks, a 1,235 square mile chunk of ice slipped away, which scientists attributed to warmer air temperatures. Prior to that, the Larsen B ice shelf had been stable for 12,000 years…It's unclear if Larsen C will respond in a similar ways…The loss of this portion of the ice shelf will not raise sea levels since it is already floating on the water. However, as these ice shelves disintegrate, the land-locked glaciers they hold back may begin sliding into the sea. If all of the ice the Larsen C ice shelf holds back slides into the ocean, it will raise sea levels globally by four inches.” click here for more

    The Rump’s Skewed Facts On New Energy And Jobs The real story behind Trump's claim that Paris would kill 2.7 million jobs

    Chris Isidore, June 1, 2017 (CNN Money)

    “Massive job losses. Lower wages. Shuttered factories. Brownouts and blackouts…That's the grim future that President Trump said he was trying to avoid when he announced that the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate change deal…[He cited a NERA Economic Consulting study in claiming the Paris Accord] could cost America as much as 2.7 million lost jobs by 2025…The study was done on behalf of a conservative public interest group, the the American Council for Capital Formation…Trump cited what the report calls the most likely outcome, which was the one that would hurt the economy the most…[The study] doesn't say anything about widespread blackouts and brownouts that would shut down factories…[It is a stark contrast to arguments of major business leaders who] argue that the economy will be hurt by Trump's decision…Environmental experts also say the NERA study overestimates how much it will cost to cut carbon emissions…[because it] assumes that efforts to cut emissions would fall almost exclusively on heavy industry…[and] grossly overstates the changes in output and jobs…” click here for more

    Utility Execs Face Big Changes From New Energy Distributed Generation Growth Makes Utility Execs Worry about Revenues, Reliability: Study

    Lisa Cohn, June 5, 2017 (Microgrid Knowledge)

    “…Fifty-nine percent of utility executives surveyed…expect small-scale distributed generation to stress their network hosting abilities and 66 percent of executives said they expect their role to transition toward distributed energy integration and market facilitation, [according to Accenture’s Power Surge Ahead: How Distribution Utilities Can Get Smart with Distributed Generation]…Utility executives say they are worried about the impact on their revenues of the booming growth of distributed generation…Fifty-eight percent of the executives surveyed think distributed generation will reduce their revenues by 2030…[V]ertically integrated utilities must grabble with the one-two punch of lowered energy sales revenues and boosted network costs to provide reliable delivery…[T]he biggest stress on utilities’ network hosting capacity will come from energy prosumers who are investing in small-scale distributed generation. A second challenge is medium- or high-voltage connected distributed generation, including large-scale solar plants…About 60 percent of executives surveyed said they expect increased numbers of grid faults by 2020 as a result of distributed renewable energy…” click here for more
