Go Solar Energy For Life -

Some electric utility companies are just plain foolish… such as this one in New Mexico. It may be wise for Floridians to keep an eye on energy battles in other states… we may be fighting similar battles here, soon.

Read about New Mexico’s major crossroads when it comes to coal and planning their energy future, in the article below.

Divest from Fossil Fuels

Posted by Dan On November 25th

One thing you CAN do to help create a more sustainable world… don’t give them your money. Check out Go Fossil Free.

Divest from Fossil Fuels

And here’s a good article about the movement to divest from fossil fuels from Mother Earth News: Fossil Fuel Divestment: A Growing Movement.

Two and half years ago, Bill McKibben wrote an article called “The Great Carbon Bubble: Why the Fossil Fuel Industry Fights So Hard”.  It’s still a good read.  Check it out.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s U.N. Climate Summit Speech

Posted by Dan On September 30th

In case you missed it…

Leonardo DiCaprio addressed world leaders at the UN Climate Summit last week with bold statements such as:

“We need to put a price tag on carbon emissions and eliminate government subsidies for oil, coal and gas companies.”

For more goodies like that, watch his whole 4 minute speech here:

It makes me happy and hopeful to see so many people understanding the problem, and more importantly, doing something about it… like marching in the streets of NYC.

Big Bank Believes in Solar Energy

Posted by Dan On September 2nd

Solar energy is growing faster than most people realize but for some “strange reason” (read: fear of disrupting the existing power structure), solar energy isn’t getting the media exposure it deserves. I see evidence everyday of a skyrocketing switch to a renewable energy economy. Here’s another article to that effect.

Electric Grid Improved by Solar Energy

Posted by Dan On August 19th

Germany is a world leader not only in implementing renewable energy, but also in the reliability of it’s electric grid. Just in case you’ve heard talk about solar and wind energy being unreliable, Germany has one of the most reliable electric grids in the world… far better than the USA’s… thanks in part to solar and wind.

Read the whole story here in the Climate Progress.

These are exciting times. Rocky Mountain Institute’s Armory Lovins explains why renewable energy is taking over in this short YouTube video.

You gotta love solar power!

Climate Change – Memorial Day 2050

Posted by Dan On June 17th

I enjoyed these thoughts on climate change in the The New York Times that Thomas Friedman dug up a few weeks ago.

Hope you enjoy them, too.

There is a lot of excitement in the air about using high-tech batteries to store energy… especially renewable energy.

Here’s an article from the New York Times: “Ice or Molten Salt, Not Batteries, to Store Energy” that reveals another energy storage option… ice.

And here’s why I’m particularly fond on it: www.icestor.com. ;-)

Last year, I introduced you to “The Story of Stuff” in the following posts: Watch the “The Story of Stuff”Is America Broke?, Do You Understand “Cap and Trade”?, and “The Story of Solutions”.

Now I’d like to let “The Story of Stuff” introduce you to another leader: Lisa Hoyos, co-founder of ClimateParents.

In this audio clip, Lisa discusses what kids and parents can do to live in a kid-safe and climate-safe world.
