    QUICK NEWS, April 17: Kids Demand Moral Response To Climate Change; Wind Delivers Big Money To Struggling Rural Ohio; Studies Leave Doubt Of Need For Old Energy

    Kids Demand Moral Response To Climate Change Florida Kids Sue Gov. Scott Over Climate Change: You Have 'Moral Obligation' to Protect Us; The case, connected to the federal Our Children’s Trust climate lawsuit, is one of nine pressuring states to take action on global warming and fossil fuels.

    Georgina Gustin, April 16, 2018 (Inside Climate News)

    “Eight young Floridians, ages 10 to 19, sued their state and its climate-policy-averse governor… for failing to protect residents from the impacts of a warming climate…They say they already see signs of climate change around them—from powerful hurricanes to extreme heat waves to tidal flooding that now regularly washes into coastal roads and parks as sea level rises—and they want the state to do something about it…[The lawsuit] is the latest in a wave of legal cases filed by children against states and the federal government that accuse government of depriving them of the fundamental right to a stable climate…The Florida plaintiffs [argue the state should] ‘adhere to its legal and moral obligation to protect current and future generations from the intensifying impacts of climate change…’” click here for more

    Wind Delivers Big Money To Struggling Rural Ohio Wind power set to deliver $54m to Ohio’s rural communities by the end of 2018

    Michele Froese, April 16, Windpower Engineering & Development)

    “…[Just four utility-scale wind projects in rural Ohio] will have delivered over $54 million in payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT) and land lease payments by the end of 2018…[These very real financial benefits to places in need of economic opportunity underscores the misguidedness the Ohio Legislature, which] – without any public input or legislative debate – enacted changes to the state’s property setback requirements for new wind projects in 2014, creating one of the most stringent statewide setback laws in the nation. Since the change, the state’s Power Siting Board has yet to receive a single new project application that complies with the requirements. In addition, there are more than a dozen approved or pending in-state wind projects that may not reach completion without a change to the current law…In contrast, the American wind industry has developed 17 projects in nearby and neighboring states such as Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Pennsylvania since 2014, representing over $2 billion in project investment…” click here for more

    Studies Leave Doubt Of Need For Old Energy Department of Energy Releases Bogus Study to Prop Up Coal Plants

    Jeremy Richardson, April 10, 2018 (Union of Concerned Scientists)

    “…Major grid operator PJM’s new study shows [a National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL)] report “reaches some sweeping conclusions that are not supported by the specific facts concerning grid operations” and [PJM debunks the Department of Energy (DOE)-ordered NETL study’s] claim that blackouts would have occurred without the coal units dispatched during the bomb cyclone…[The NETL study also] estimates a bogus value for coal providing these so-called “resiliency” services…[Federal regulators] rejected the DOE’s fact-free proposal to bail out coal and nuclear plants late last year…[The nugget of truth] is that we do need reserve capacity to be available in times of peak demand, especially during [winter cold snaps and other] extreme weather events…[But] regional transmission organizations (RTOs) and independent system operators (ISOs)were prepared for the cold snap, and the markets [and New Energy output compensated for spikes in natural gas prices]…” click here for more
