    QUICK NEWS, December 3: Watch U.S. Cities Heat Up; Astonishing Things About New Energy, Part 5 – Geothermal

    Watch U.S. Cities Heat Up Watch how the climate could change in these US cities by 2050; In some cities, it’ll be like moving two states south.

    Umair Irfan and Kavya Sukumar, Javier Zarracina and Amanda Northrop, November 30, 2018 (VOX)

    “…[Climate change has already had devastating impacts on our health and economy, and its costs could mount to hundreds of billions of dollars by the end of the century, according to the National Climate Assessment from 13 federal agencies. Maps from Weather 2050, based on the assessment’s business as usual forecasts show] many US cities may resemble hotter, more southern parts of the country today…in terms of their temperature and rainfall patterns…The planet as a whole has already warmed by 1°C since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, and we are currently on track to see upward of 2°C of warming by 2040. But we still have an opportunity to prevent the worst-case scenarios…Whether the world shifts to cleaner energy, eats less meat, manages land better, pulls carbon dioxide out of the air, or sticks to business as usual will mean vastly different degrees of future warming…” click here for more

    Astonishing Things About New Energy, Part 5 – Geothermal 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)

    “…Geothermal energy could replace nuclear power, with help from fracking…While some states have provided subsidies to reward nuclear power plants for providing carbon-free electricity, that can't continue indefinitely. By 2030, the country's aging [nuclear] fleet will be long overdue for retirement…The U.S. Department of Energy is quietly funding the development of a novel technology called enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). By using fracking technology pioneered and perfected for use in shale oil and gas regions, it may be possible to create geothermal energy wells across the United States that can produce massive amounts of clean energy…

    …[Simulations show numbers almost] too good to be true. The United States has an estimated 100,000 megawatts of easily accessible next-generation geothermal potential -- exactly the amount of nuclear power currently operating. Geothermal is the second most efficient energy source…behind nuclear power, and the U.S. DOE is targeting a deployment date of 2030 -- exactly when the nation will need to replace its nuclear fleet…The opportunity isn't quite ready for individual investors yet, but companies that specialize in oil and gas well optimization…[could take advantage of] emerging opportunities in EGS…” click here for more
