    New Forest To Offset Bad U.S. Climate Policies Has 120,000 Pledges 'Donald Trump forest' climate change project gains momentum

    Matt McGrath, August 15, 2017 (BBC News)

    “A campaign to plant trees to compensate for the impact of President Trump's climate policies has 120,000 pledges…The project was started by campaigners upset at what they call the president's ‘ignorance’ on climate science…Trump Forest allows people either to plant locally or pay for trees in a number of poorer countries…The organisers say they need to plant an area the size of Kentucky to offset the Trump effect…Based in New Zealand, the project began in March this year and so far has gained pledges from around 450 people based all around the world. In the first month, 15,000 trees were pledged - that's now gone past 120,000…Some people have paid for trees to be planted in forest restoration projects in Madagascar, Haiti, Ethiopia, and Nepal. Others have simply bought and planted a tree themselves and sent a copy of the receipt to the project…” click here for more

    Wind Becoming The Go-To Power Interactive Map Shows You How Wind Power Is Taking Over America

    August 14, 2017 (IFL Science)

    "…[A new tool maps] every utility-scale wind project and wind-related manufacturing facility in the United States…In 2016, [wind provided over 6 percent of all energy used in the country, after 30 years] of rapid growth…[The tool’s time-lapse feature traces that growth…California took the lead, establishing the earliest modern wind projects in the early 1980s. Since then, several other states have upped their game, including Iowa, Kansas, Texas, and South Dakota, who get as much as 20 percent of their energy from wind…[Wind] supports more than 100,000 jobs across 50 states and the Bureau of Labour puts wind turbine service technicians at the top of its fastest growing occupations list…” click here for more

    88,000 Jobs And The Fight Over Solar Imports Why 88,000 American jobs in solar energy are at risk

    Charles Hernick, August 14, 2017 (The Hill)

    “…[An August 15] hearing will determine the fate of 88,000 American jobs…The U.S. International Trade Commission must decide whether an influx of lower-cost solar panels, mostly produced in Asian countries, has an excessively harmful effect on domestic manufacturers that make comparable solar cells…[The outcome will have an immediate jobs impact and] set a precedent for how similar cases will be handled…The case was brought by Suniva and SolarWorld, which together employ a little over a thousand workers. [They] claim there are too many imported solar panels that are too cheap…The commission will assess whether there has been injury done and whether it was a direct result of the inexpensive imports, and it will then make a formal recommendation to the president if it has determined that a trade remedy — a tariff increase — is appropriate. The tariff the two companies have requested on imported cells would effectively double their cost, which would obviously be a disaster for the broader solar industry…” click here for more
