    QUICK NEWS, October 9: Climate Change And The Emperor’s New Clothes; The Way To More New Energy

    Climate Change And The Emperor’s New Clothes Why We Keep Ignoring Even the Most Dire Climate Change Warnings

    Jeffrey Kluger, October 8, 2018 (Time Magazine)

    “…Humans have always been an exceedingly risk-averse species—which is how we came to survive…[So when it comes to the loss of the entire planet, well, we ought to take action. And yet we don’t…[In the wake of an announcement by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that a] distant future of an Earth best by floods, droughts, wildfires and typhoons isn’t distant anymore, but as little as 12 years away…the public reaction—again, as always—has been meh…[because] climate change checks almost every one of our ignore-the-problem boxes…[It lacks the absolutely critical component—the “me” component…

    Immediate concerns will always trump eventual concerns—which is one more trick of species survival…We establish that kind of distance from risk not just temporally but geographically and culturally…Finally, there’s a sense of futility…[Climate change is] arguably the biggest of all problems—and that makes individual action seem awfully pointless…Of course, every great human enterprise has called on people not to do things they want to do or to do things they don’t—paying taxes, volunteering for military service…[I]t has helped ensure the success of the larger human project and the survival of the next generations…[If we don’t act on climate change,] we’re going to owe those generations an explanation—and an apology.” click here for more

    The Way To More New Energy Commitments to renewable energy are a great start — what comes next?

    Priya Barua, Celina Bonugli and Emily Kaldjian, October 2, 2018 (GreenBiz)

    “In the past five years, private energy buyers have made significant commitments to reaching 100 percent renewable energy and have voluntarily brought about 14.2 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy into the electricity market…To maximize these renewable energy commitments and ensure that they are contributing to decarbonizing the electricity grid, we are entering a new era of collaboration, in which utilities will need to play an important role…[by using a portfolio of New Energy technologies like electric vehicles, large batteries and demand response strategies in] achieving net GHG emission reductions, while maintaining reliability, grid efficiency and affordability…

    …[Utilities can advance solutions by collaborating] with customers to identify opportunities to retire existing power plants faster…[i]ntegrating customer energy efficiency and renewable energy goals into their long-term plans and strategies…[and designing solutions that take a portfolio approach to recognize and monetize various grid resources…Utilities and customers must continue collaborating to expand the scope of utility solutions and achieve the reduced carbon emissions from our electricity market…[They] must clearly communicate their respective sustainability and clean energy goals with…the intention of collaborating and connecting often…[and stakeholding communities] should prioritize metrics that support this broader definition of leadership…” click here for more
