    QUICK NEWS, November 20: Climate Change Gets Everybody And Everybody Has Solutions; Astonishing Things About New Energy, Part 4

    Climate Change Gets Everybody And Everybody Has Solutions Climate change will get you, whether you believe in it or not

    Kathy Hedberg, November 19, 2018 (Lewiston Tribune)

    The problem with this controversy over climate change is that whether or not you’re a believer, whatever happens to the world is going to happen to all of us…If the planet is incinerated, it won’t matter whether you thought it was real…Sometimes it really doesn’t matter what you believe in. Reality happens…Those of us who are convinced climate change is reality — and there seems to be mounting evidence that it is — are trying to do whatever we can to mitigate the effects. I’ve been recycling for years…[But] my meager contribution is a mere drop in the bucket of the climate change problem…

    …[If the world is going to burn up,] the best solution would be to figure out how to keep the inferno from happening in the first place…[T]here are lots and lots of good ideas out there about how to put out the forest fire before it grows out of control. Young people, who are going to inherit this mess if there is a mess left to inherit, have fresh, inquisitive minds and energy and the incentive to turn things around. All they need is space...[Friends] recently bought an electric car and installed solar panels to charge it. It makes them feel better to do something positive about energy usage that might help their grandchildren survive…I’m still recycling tin cans…” click here for more

    Astonishing Things About New Energy, Part 4 5 Hard-to-Believe Renewable Energy Facts; Renewable energy from wind and solar went from impossibly expensive to nearly 10% of American electricity in less than 20 years. What's ahead may be even more astounding.

    Maxx Chatsko, November 11, 2018 (The Motley Fool)

    “…Offshore wind capacity could grow to 23,375 megawatts by 2030…Hindered by a lack of domestic expertise, high costs, and zoning issues, offshore wind power boasts just 30 megawatts of installed capacity in the country today. That's all about to change…[Europe] hosts the overwhelming majority of offshore wind projects on the planet…[and] European players such as Orsted are crossing the Atlantic to grab a piece of North America's incredible untapped potential.

    The United States could realistically generate more than twice its total electricity needs from offshore wind power in the Lower 48. Tremendous power potential, falling costs, and experience gleaned from Europe have resulted in a project pipeline of 23,375 megawatts today. Most of that could come online by 2030 and greatly improve the carbon footprint of American cities, most of which are located on or near an oceanic coast or one of the Great Lakes…” click here for more
