    Mural Makes Climate Change More Than Real Augmented-reality mural in Miami warns of climate-change danger

    Leslie Ovalle, February 5, 2018 (Miami Herald)

    Miami is the proverbial ‘canary in the coal mine’ with respect to the effects of sea level rise caused by climate change, according to Juan Carlos Gallo, a digital designer for Miami Murals, at the unveiling of an augmented-reality mural depicting the dangers of climate change to South Florida in front of the Historic City of Miami Cemetery. Gallo said the fight against the dangers offer an opportunity for the people and the government to work together…The mural, painted by artists Odobo and Muta Vision, depicts the city’s skyline and name in big letters, each representing an area of its famous nightlife —diamond studs, skyscrapers, neon lights and a Xanax pill. A cell phone app simulation projects two alternate futures for the city on it. To complete the AR experience the audience is asked to answer one question: Be the change or not be the change? click here for more

    The Fight For Solar In Kentucky Will GOP let utilities crush solar (and 1,200 jobs) in Kentucky? This could get ugly.

    Tom Eblen, February 5, 2018 (Lexington Herald Leader)

    “…[GOP leaders allowed Rep. Jim Gooch] to add three members to the Natural Resources and Energy Committee he chairs…to try to pass a bill he is sponsoring to let electric utility monopolies crush Kentucky’s residential solar power industry…[House Bill 227’s] fate in the Republican-controlled legislature could have significance beyond solar energy…[If passed, it] would cut by 70 percent the rate utilities pay homeowners for excess solar power they pump into the grid…[Solar adovcates say that would have measurable economic reverberations because it would] kill 1,200 jobs in small solar energy businesses across Kentucky in order to protect utility monopolies…” click here for more

    States Are Choosing Offshore Wind Trump Wants Offshore Drilling, but States Are Choosing Wind Energy; States bordering the outer continental shelf are looking for carbon-free electricity as the Trump administration rolls back rules requiring it

    Brittany Patterson, February 5, 2018 (ClimateWire via Scientific American)

    “…[Atlantic coast states bordering the outer continental shelf are looking for carbon-free electricity, even as the Trump administration rolls back rules requiring it...[New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) just] announced that his state will aim for 3,500 megawatts of installed offshore wind by 2030…Massachusetts has a goal to build 1,600 MW of offshore wind power by 2027, and New York has committed to 2,400 MW by 2030…At the same time, wind technology is quickly advancing, thanks to its popularity in Europe. Ten countries across Europe had deployed 12,600 MW of offshore wind power by the end of 2016…[The U.S.] Interior Department's Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has issued 13 wind energy leases off the Atlantic coast…It's unclear how the growth in offshore wind might be affected by Trump's plan to open nearly all U.S. waters to oil and gas drilling…The administration's proposal to open the Atlantic coastline to oil drilling was criticized by many of the governors along the Eastern Seaboard…” click here for more
