Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    Wind Art Turns Climate Change Fighter

    Wind energy mines digital cash to support climate research; Using the symptoms of climate change to fight climate change.

    Jon Fingas, September 16, 2017 (End Gadget)

    “…[Julian Oliver's Harvest project uses a 700W wind turbine to power a PC mining cryptocurrency (specifically, Zcash) that directly funds climate change research…It was commissioned as a piece of art, but it's a very practical design that could find plenty of uses in the real world…The PC itself is mostly off-the-shelf, with the GPU-heavy specs that you'd expect from a mining rig: it's using 'just' a Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, but it packs a hefty GeForce GTX 1080 Ti to process virtual cash as quickly as possible. The biggest changes are the obligatory weatherproof casing and a controller to regulate the incoming charge. The turbine itself has two hefty 150Ah batteries (each weighs about 95lbs) to store excess energy for use around the clock…[Harvest is installed at Sweden's Konstmuseet i Skövde (Art Museum in Skövde) until] mid-November. Oliver will donate the mined cryptocurrency to three climate-related non-profit groups…[He] sees this as a prototype, and envisions ‘hundreds’ of these machines raising money in windy areas…[for the climate fight or] rural internet access and any other infrastructure…” click here for more
