    4 Key Ways To Stand Up To Climate Change These Four Lifestyle Changes Will Do More To Combat Climate Change Than Anything Else

    Robin Andrews,, 13 July 2017 (IFL Science)

    “…We’ve argued in the past that the most valuable thing you can do for climate advocacy is to vote for politicians that are pro-science and pro-environment. There are plenty of other things you can do too…[T]hey tend to be things people are involved with in their everyday lives: living without a car, avoiding air travel, avoiding eating meat, and – most “controversially” – have fewer children…The logic behind these choices is simple. Everyone in industrialized nations can abide by these actions, and they would clearly reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Farming animals is very energy-intensive; plants, less so. Air travel and cars use a lot of carbon-rich petrol, so walking or cycling or using public transport would cut this out dramatically…[H]aving less children means the next generation would require (and demand) fewer resources…” click here for more

    New Energy Safe For U.S. Grid – DOE Study Renewable Energy Not a Threat to Grid, Draft of U.S. Study Finds

    Catherine Traywick, Ari Natter, Jennifer A. Dlouhy, July 14, 2017 (Bloomberg News)

    “…Wind and solar power don’t pose a significant threat to the reliability of the U.S. power grid, Energy Department staff members said in a draft report, contradicting statements by their leader Rick Perry…[They reported the grid is more reliable] due to better planning, market discipline, and better operating rules and standards…[The still-under-review conclusions confirm the independent findings of the Analyst Group’s Electricity Markets, Reliability and the Evolving U.S. Power System but] contrast with Perry’s arguments that ‘baseload’ sources such as coal and nuclear power that provide constant power are jeopardized by Obama-era incentives for renewable energy, making the grid unreliable…Two people familiar with the report, who asked not to be identified discussing internal deliberations, confirmed the early conclusions though cautioned they were subject to change. It is customary for administration officials to put their own stamp on reports prepared by career staff at federal agencies…” click here for more

    Solar Plus Storage Can Beat NatGas Price Report: Solar plus storage can beat natural gas

    Elizabeth Dunbar, July 14, 2017 (Minnesota Public Radio via PostBulletin)

    “…[Adding energy storage to Minnesota’s power system] is becoming a cost effective way to meet electricity demand…[On a hot summer day when electricity demand is much higher than usual because of air conditioning, it is likely to be more cost effective than] to build a conventional plant…[According to Modernizing Minnesota’s Grid; An Economic Analysis of Energy Storage Options, renewables plus storage is] cost effective right now…[but] the state's reliance on natural gas for electricity would jump dramatically without energy storage…[The rapidly falling cost of storage and federal and state incentives] help the math work out in favor of storage…” click here for more
