    QUICK NEWS, April 23: “Letter From A Teenage Girl Who Has Had Enough”; The Many Values Of Ocean Wind; Solar For All

    “Letter From A Teenage Girl Who Has Had Enough” Dear leaders: You've failed your children on climate change

    Jamie Margolin, April 22, 2018 (CNN)

    Read this passionate letter, signed “A teenage girl who has had enough and is not alone” HERE

    “Dear leaders…You failed us…[W]hen faced with the choice of fossil fuel money for your campaigns, or the wellbeing of your children, you pick fossil fuels…[M]y generation is so done with your talk…I'm a 16-year-old sophomore in high school. I have my whole life ahead of me, and there's so much I want to do…[But] I'm growing up in the early 21st century, a time when the world and all its life systems are falling apart…When I think of the future, I can't assume stability or safety.

    When I think of adulthood, I see my home being flooded, I see deathly heat waves, droughts, famine and intense, deadly storms…I see insects, allergens, and diseases spreading…countless people dying from toxic drinking water, food full of chemicals, and air thick with pollutants…millions upon millions of refugees…wars and conflict over dwindling resources…You are leaving my generation with a world that is unlivable…The first step to getting out of a hole is to stop digging…You're still in the pockets of corporations digging our destruction…Generation Z has had it…We are organizing the [Youth Climate March in Washington DC this on July 21] that you won't be able to ignore…” click here for more

    The Many Values Of Ocean Wind New study finds that the market value of offshore wind varies significantly along the U.S. east coast

    April 16, 2018 (Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory)

    “…[T]he economic value of wind power can vary significantly by location, depending on the time-varying wind resource profile at a given site, as well as local pricing and market rules within the regional power market…[A new Berkeley Lab study] finds that the historical ‘market value’ of offshore wind (considering energy, capacity, and REC value) is highest for sites off of New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts—i.e., all areas where offshore wind is being actively pursued—and lowest for sites along the southeastern coast…[It] also finds that offshore wind can reduce air pollution emissions and wholesale electricity and natural gas prices, though effects vary in magnitude over time and across regions…The ‘market value’ of offshore wind is found to have exceeded that of land-based wind, due to offshore wind sites being located closer to major population centers and also having a time-varying profile of electricity production that is more-correlated with that of electricity demand. Yet, the cost of offshore wind is also higher than that of land-based wind, requiring important economic tradeoffs…” click here for more

    Solar For All This Untapped Market Could Add 320 Gigawatts Of New U.S. Residential Solar Energy

    Silvio Maracacci, April 23, 2018 (Forbes)

    “Residential rooftop solar projects in the U.S. have historically been installed on wealthier, single-family households, meaning companies typically target higher-income households with their marketing efforts...[T]his focus is overlooking a massive growth opportunity: Low-to-moderate income (LMI) households…A new first-of-its-kind report from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) finds nearly half of all U.S. residential rooftop solar technical potential is on LMI households, and LMI solar capacity could total 320 gigawatts (GW) of potential solar installations across America…[That is six times solar’s current] 53.3 GW total installed capacity...LMI solar’s growth potential extends to nearly every corner of the U.S…[but tapping] the LMI solar opportunity will require innovative approaches to solar projects and market policies described in the NREL paper]…” click here for more
