NewEnergyNews: QUICK NEWS, July 16: What We Have Here Is A Failure To Communicate; As Energy Storage

NewEnergyNews

Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, the administration's position on the climate crisis makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Therefore, until November 2020, the NewEnergyNews theme song:

    QUICK NEWS, July 16: What We Have Here Is A Failure To Communicate; As Energy Storage

    What We Have Here Is A Failure To Communicate What shapes your beliefs about the climate crisis? It’s not just left vs. right.

    Kate Yoder, July 12, 2019 (Grist)

    “Unless you’ve lost your home to a super-charged hurricane, evacuated from wildfire country, or survived some other kind of climate disaster, it’s not too hard to [to ignore scientific conclusions and forecasts and] live as if we weren’t in the middle of a planetary crisis…[It’s more difficult] to brush off your friends and family when they start talking about climate change…Liberals and conservatives alike shift their opinions on the subject to align with the people closest to them…[New studies confirm that the influence of close relationships was ‘massive’…

    [T]he more people discuss the topic with friends and family, the more convinced they become that climate change is happening, caused by humans, and something to be worried about…[Those] discussing the climate more often had developed a slightly better grasp of the scientific consensus around climate change…[and people] who had a better understanding of the scientific agreement ended up discussing climate change more, in a self-reinforcing cycle…There’s one problem here: Most people aren’t talking about climate change at all, so they’re not part of this feedback cycle…[Y]ou don’t have to be fluent in the science to discuss climate change…[It is only necessary to] connect the dots between the values people already have and why they would care about a changing climate…” click here for more

    EVs As Energy Storage Electric cars could form battery hubs to store renewable energy; By 2050, National Grid predicts, 35m electric cars will supply energy when needed

    Jillian Ambrose, 10 July 2019 (UK Guardian)

    A fleet of 35m electric vehicles could help the UK reach its net-zero carbon target by forming large battery hubs to store renewable energy…[The country’s energy system operator] predicts that, by 2050, millions of electric cars will use wind and solar power to charge up within minutes to act as battery packs for when the grid needs more energy…[L]ong-range energy forecasts predict that smart charging systems will use algorithms to help cars balance demand and supply on the grid, while making the most of renewable energy and saving customers money…

    [T]he plug-in car fleet could hold a fifth of the electricity produced by the UK’s solar panels, which [is expected by 2050 to] quadruple…[making the UK’s net zero emissions by 2050] achievable because it helps cut carbon from the energy and transport sectors…[Electric vehicles are expected to be] the most popular form of transport between 2030 and the early 2040s. It also predicts that many more homes and communities will generate their own electricity through solar panels or micro windpower projects…” click here for more
