    The Key Climate Change Unknown The Real Unknown of Climate Change: Our Behavior

    Justin Gillis, September 18, 2017 (NY Times)

    “As Hurricane Harvey bore down on the Texas coast, few people in that state seemed to understand the nature of the looming danger…[Scientists in Texas] have spent their careers issuing a larger warning, one that much of the public still chooses to ignore…Because of atmospheric emissions from human activity, the ocean waters from which Harvey drew its final burst of strength were much warmer than they ought to have been, most likely contributing to the intensity of the deluge…[Most likely,] the most savage heat waves that we experience today will likely become routine in a matter of decades…[and the] coastal inundation that has already begun will grow worse and worse…

    …[While many people are coming to their own commonsense conclusions,] some senior Republicans continue to question the link between human-caused emissions and rising temperatures…[Real uncertainties about details remain but they cut in both directions…[If they go against us, there] could be 80 or 100 feet of sea level rise...The truth is that the single biggest uncertainty is, and has always been, how much carbon pollution humans are going to choose to pump into the air…And yet most of us have still not bestirred ourselves to care, much less to march in the streets demanding change…Is this failure to act the legacy our generation wants to leave for the generations yet to come?” click here for more

    Beer Brewer Anheuser-Busch In Big Wind Buy Anheuser-Busch signs wind farm power deal as part of global renewable energy goal

    Lisa Brown, September 13, 2017 (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)

    “Anheuser-Busch InBev has signed a deal to buy power produced by an Oklahoma wind farm as part of its global goal to have 100 percent of its purchased electricity come from renewable sources by 2025…[A-B will buy 152.5 MW of the $435 million, 298 MW Thunder Ranch wind project being developed in Oklahoma by Enel Green Power. The power purchase agreement] will be the brewer’s first contracted utility-scale project to start operations globally [when it goes online later this year. The maker of Budweiser and other beers announced plans for a similar deal in Mexico for 490 gigawatt hours annually, but that wind farm deal won’t go into effect until 2019…The renewable energy produced under A-B’s agreement with Enel Green Power will be equivalent to powering up to half of A-B’s total purchased electricity in a year…Solar power will [also] continue to be an area of focus for A-B…” click here for more

    Montana Grew Solar 400% In 2016 Montana quadruples solar energy capacity in one year

    Erin Loranger, September 15, 2017 (Helena Independent Record)

    “…Montana was producing 6.6 megawatts of installed capacity a year ago. The governor’s office released an energy plan, Montana Energy Future, with a goal to double solar capacity by 2025. Now the state has an installed capacity of 26 megawatts…[The governor’s office said] the state hopes to continue increasing solar production, which creates jobs and promotes energy independence…There [were] 373,807 solar jobs as of 2016 in the United States. The solar industry employs more people than coal, natural gas, wind or nuclear sources…[For helping drive this solar growth, the Montana Renewable Energy Association presented Governor Bullock’s] administration with a clean energy leadership award…” click here for more
