    QUICK NEWS, April 15: Climate Change’s “Extreme Pollen” Ups Allergy Struggles; Solar Breaking Through In The Southeast

    Climate Change’s “Extreme Pollen” Ups Allergy Struggles Allergy Season Is Getting Worse, Thanks To Climate Change

    Steven Salzberg, April 15, 2019 (Forbes)

    “Allergy sufferers are having a rough time of it this spring…and climate change is at least partly to blame…[Airborne pollen data from 17 locations, spanning the entire globe, and stretching back an average of 26 years, shows increases in] both pollen loads and pollen season duration over time…The NY Times reported that North Carolina is facing “extreme pollen” which has turned the air yellowish…

    [O]ver-the-counter antihistamines help, although they only treat the symptoms. Allergy shots can provide long-term relief, if you have the time to go through the months-long regimen.

    Solar Breaking Through In The Southeast Solar In the Southeast; Second Annual Report Highlights Corporate Leadership Driving Solar Expansion Throughout the Region

    April 11, 2019 (Southern Alliance for Clean Energy)

    “…[Solar energy development in the Southeast reached over] 8,000 megawatts (MW) of solar capacity in 2018…[and the annual report from the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy] has increased its forecast to 17,000 MW by 2021 and nearing 20,000 MW for 2022…Corporate leadership is playing a big role in driving new solar capacity, with major project announcements from corporations including Facebook, Google, Target, Walmart, and Johnson & Johnson…Florida is emerging as a regional leader, now forecast to surpass North Carolina in solar capacity by 2022…

    Tennessee and Alabama continue to lag behind other states in the Southeast with less than half the average forecast solar ratio, even with several new solar project announcements, largely driven by corporate solar demand…There are some new entrants on this list of solar leaders - Walton EMC, FPL, and Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC) join four returning "SunRisers" demonstrating leading levels of planned solar growth over the next four years…There are also some repeat offenders - Santee Cooper, Seminole Electric Cooperative, and TVA remain on the list of “SunBlocker” utilities whose forecast solar ratio for 2022 will remain below the regional average from 2018…” click here for more
