    QUICK NEWS, October 1: What #MeToo Means For Climate Change; Three Key New Energy Trends

    What #MeToo Means For Climate Change Why the #MeToo movement gives me hope we can fix climate change; These days new social norms can be swift and profound. It could be our saving grace

    Andrew Simms, 1 October 2018 (UK Guardian)

    “…The latest science tells us that nothing short of rapid, transformative change in our infrastructure and behaviour can prevent the loss of the climate we depend on – yet the message is only now being officially endorsed at the highest scientific level, because the implications are terrifying for today’s political and economic gatekeepers. It means real change, which incumbents always fear…[But work from the Rapid Transition Alliance shows] we might be entering a phase in which more rapid behavioural changes are possible…[I]n the early 1970s, more than half of men and over 40% of women smoked… Today in the UK fewer than one in five adults still smoke… Car use in the UK was 20 times higher in 2016 compared with 1949, but the risk of being injured or killed fell almost every year from 1949, from 165 deaths for every billion miles driven, to only 5.4 such deaths in 2015…

    Other examples of successful behaviour change can be found in responses to the HIV/Aids crisis, the dangers of an unhealthy diet and antibiotic resistance…[T]here are signs that something else is happening that might bring even faster shifts in attitude and behaviour closer to what is needed to meet vital climate targets. A mixture of new social movements and social media now seem capable of transforming gradual background shifts into defining moments of change… From the shift around single-use plastics, to the #MeToo movement and the rise of the vegan diet, things are moving fast…Things change. It’s the one thing that is reliable. The climate is changing faster than the attitudes and behaviour of the people most responsible for causing its disruption – but we now know enough to speed things up if we choose to…” click here for more

    Three Key New Energy Trends Leading Renewable Energy Trends To Watch For Today Venturing at renewable energy trends is a responsibility that all nations need to work into and it will surely be worth every investment.

    Kevin Facun, October 1, 2018 (Gineers Now)

    “…[New Energy is the key to moving] away from costly and environmentally-degrading energy sources…For renewable energy plants to deliver reliable and efficient power to communities, companies must invest in powerful energy storage systems that could potentially cut the consumption rates by providing a steady and dependable service…[Tesla recently] installed the world’s largest lithium-ion battery called the Hornsdale Power Reserve in Australia, which has a 100MW/129MWh capacity…[The stronger electricity grid] could power up to 30,000 homes…[Using New Energy and storage, smart micro-grids could deliver decentralized, cost-efficient power] services to remote areas…

    [And, through the use of IoT (Internet of Things), smart] micro-grids could be the alternative power source when the national grid shuts down or becomes unstable…Electric cars are now being tagged “the future of transportation” and it will undeniably take place as renewable energy advocates push for cleaner alternatives which are immensely beneficial economically and environmentally…[From 2016 to 2017, global sales increased 59% and China just mandated 20% EVs] in 2025…[Though it would take time, many companies are working] to make these vehicles reach a high mile range after every charge…[T]hese renewable energy trends will surely be worth every investment…” click here for more
