    QUICK NEWS, June 10: Bloomberg’s $500 Mil To Bring The End Of Carbon; New Energy Officially Passes Coal

    Bloomberg’s $500 Mil To Bring The End Of Carbon Joining Forces to Fight the Climate Crisis and Move Beyond Carbon; Earthjustice and Beyond Carbon are partnering to spur a transition to 100% clean energy in communities around the country, and the world.

    Abigail Dillen, June 7, 2019 (EarthJustice)

    “…[Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Bloomberg Philanthropies has committed $500 million to Earthjustice’s Beyond Carbon work to] move the U.S. beyond carbon…From raging wildfires to record-breaking hurricanes, climate disasters are destroying lives, homes, and livelihoods. The window of time left to save our future is narrowing fast. Meanwhile, the Trump administration is choosing to champion dirty, expensive fossil fuels over the clean energy solutions that have emerged as an engine of sustainable prosperity…

    …[Earthjustice is] using the power of the law…[for] retiring coal plants, blocking a rush to burn more oil and gas, and tearing down roadblocks to clean energy…[and] winning these fights…Moving Beyond Carbon means building on the exciting progress that is already underway in our states, cities, and communities as we move towards zero-emissions and 100 percent clean energy…in our transportation, buildings, and manufacturing…” click here for more

    New Energy Officially Passes Coal FERC'S Latest "Infrastructure" Report Reveals U.S. Renewable Generating Capacity Has Now Surpassed Coal!

    Ken Bossong, June 10, 2019 (Sun Day)

    “…U.S. electrical generating capacity by renewable energy sources (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind) has now - for the first time - surpassed that of coal…[Through April 30, 2019,] 18 ‘units’ of new wind capacity (1,545 MW) and 102 units of new solar capacity (1,473 MW) were added during the first four months of this year. Coupled with four units of new hydropower (29 MW), that was enough to push renewable energy's share of total available installed U.S. generating capacity up to 21.56%. By comparison, coal's share dropped to 21.55% (down from 23.04% a year ago)…

    [New Energy capacity is growing,] on average, a percentage point each year…The share of the nation's generating capacity provided by utility-scale solar alone has more than doubled during the past three years from 1.42% to 3.23%...[W]ind's share has increased from 6.43% to 8.25% and is now on track to surpass hydropower (8.41%) within the next few months…[B]y May 2022, proposed ‘high probability’ generation additions and retirements could result in a net increase in renewable energy capacity of 40,993 MW. By comparison, net capacity by nuclear, coal, oil, and natural gas combined could actually decline by 24 MW…” click here for more
