    QUICK NEWS, April 9: The Climate Change Security Risk; New Energy In Industry

    The Climate Change Security Risk Climate change poses security risks, according to decades of intelligence reports Intelligence analysts have agreed since the late 80s that climate change poses serious security risks

    Dena Nuccitelli, April 8, 2019 (Yale Climate Connections)

    “A series of authoritative governmental and nongovernmental analyses over more than three decades lays a strong foundation for concern over climate change implications for national security…[The January 2019 annual ‘Worldwide Threat Assessment’ found] ‘climate change is an urgent and growing threat to our national security, contributing to increased natural disasters, refugee flows, and conflicts over basic resources such as food and water. These impacts are already occurring, and the scope, scale, and intensity of these impacts are projected to increase over time.’ That report from National Intelligence Director Daniel R. Coats, a former U.S. Republican senator from Indiana, was just the most recent in a long string of analyses…clearly are at odds with the Trump administration’s efforts to undermine and reverse federal climate policies…

    “…[A recent review of more than 100 national security documents addressing climate change assessed] decades of official national security strategy documents prepared to guide Democratic and Republican administrations on national defense priorities and military strategy. Those analyses began warning about threats to U.S. national security from environmental factors in the late 1980s, and in 1990, a U.S. Naval War College Report warned of potential climate change hazards…President George H.W. Bush’s national security strategy in August 1991 acknowledged climate change as a security issue…[Reports from military leaders in 2003, 2007, 2010, and 2014 affirmed the finding and the 2019 Department of Defense report documented] vulnerabilities of 79 military installations to events exacerbated by climate change impacts such as floods, droughts, and wildfires…” click here for more

    New Energy In Industry The Role of Renewable Energy in the Manufacturing Sector

    Emily Folk, 8 April 2019 (Renewable Energy Magazine)

    “…The Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative (CEMI) is rallying] talent from across the industry to design and deploy more efficient technologies and find less wasteful ways to meet consumer material demands…Turning raw materials into usable products are some of the costliest and most energy-intensive activities within manufacturing…In 2017, bulk chemical, refining and mining were the three most energy-intensive industries in the United States. Industrial entities use vast amounts of electricity to operate heavy equipment, run heating and cooling systems and keep offices and other facilities lit and climate-controlled…[Powering operations] with solar arrays and wind turbines is an increasingly attractive alternative…

    Electric car maker Tesla appears on track to make good on their promise of powering their [10 million square foot] ‘Gigafactory’ with 100 percent renewable energy by the end of 2019…As a result of harnessing solar, wind and geothermal technologies to power factories like this one, the company expects to slash the prices of some of their products by up to $3,000…[Moving manufacturing and other industries to renewables can provide price] stability and security over the long term…[It is] likely ‘pennies wise’ and ‘pounds foolish’ for heavy industries like manufacturing to invest in fossil fuel-powered equipment and infrastructure today…[Solar installed today] will likely still be producing electricity 30 years from now…[T]he long view says we'll see dwindling returns if we cling to fossil fuels…” click here for more
