Long-Delayed Vogtle Nuclear Plants Want To Delay Reporting How Much Longer They’ll Be Delayed

February 11th, 2019 | by Jeremy Bloom

When centrists insist we need to build more nuclear power plants as part of the decarbonization push to prevent climate change, they ignore two very important things: New nuclear power plants are fiendishly expensive and have a lousy track record of getting built on time. Or even at all. Southern Company's Georgia Power division started building its new Vogtle nuclear reactors in 2009, with expected completion in 2016. It's now three years later, the two reactors have been delayed till 2021 and 2022, and now Georgia Power is asking to delay reporting on whether or not those delayed openings will once again be delayed

GOP Members Of Climate Solutions Caucus Lose Big In Blue Wave — Who’s Left, And What’s Next?

November 8th, 2018 | by Jeremy Bloom

Congressman Carlos Curbelo's Florida district is getting swamped by the rising seas of climate change. Likewise, he and half of the GOP members of the Bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus he founded were swamped last night by the Democratic blue wave that washed over the country. Twenty members escaped the bloodbath, while 23 either retired in the face of the blue wave or lost their re-election bids last night, leaving an uncertain future (the fates of the two GOP delegates from Samoa and Puerto Rico have not yet been reported)


Zinke Makes Bird-Brained Comments About Solar Energy On Public Land

September 29th, 2017 | by Jeremy Bloom

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke claims he's not a fossil fuel puppet. “People ask me, ‘am I a fossil fuel guy?’ " he says. “I'm like, ‘no, I'm all the above.’ " But when it comes to solar energy -- a critical component of 'all of the above' --  and the best use of public lands, his logic is... for the birds.


US Solar Industry Could Be Devastated By Today’s Tariffs Ruling — May Lead To Crushing Tariffs

September 22nd, 2017 | by Jeremy Bloom

Are solar cells too cheap? That's what the US International Trade Commission effectively ruled Friday, granting bankrupt US manufacturers SolarWorld and Suniva's petition for relief from cheaper imported solar panels. Next, they'll deliberate a remedy, which would likely mean job-crushing tariffs. The solar industry says that with the price of panels jacked up, hundreds of projects would be canceled and tens of thousands of jobs would be lost

September 17th, 2017 | by Jeremy Bloom

With just days to go in their Initial Public Stock Offering, we caught up with Arcimoto founder Mark Frohnmayer to talk about the IPO, the future of electric and autonomous vehicles, and how he is trying to revolutionize transportation with a fundamentally more efficient platform. And also a more fun platform


Trump Admin Won’t Eliminate National Monuments (But Bears Ears Still On The Chopping Block)

August 25th, 2017 | by Jeremy Bloom

We don't have an official release yet, but word is that NONE of the 27 national monuments under review by the Trump administration will be completely eliminated. But that was always an extreme option, probably tossed out there as a smokescreen to let Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke give away millions of acres to his millionaire oil and mining buddies, then say "But look, this is just a minor change compared to the disaster we COULD have perpetrated."


Trump Threatens Alaska Drilling & Mining As Payback For Murkowski’s Trumpcare Vote

July 28th, 2017 | by Jeremy Bloom

Trump has big plans to help Big Oil in Alaska — including Arctic offshore drilling, the Salmon-destroying Pebble Mine, and of course, opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for more energy exploration (a wet dream of the GOP for almost 50 years). But now all that could be at risk, since he's annoyed at Alaskan GOP Senator Lisa Murkowski for voting against Trumpcare


House Strips State Dept. of Cross-Border Pipeline Approval (Think: Keystone XL)

July 22nd, 2017 | by Jeremy Bloom

Even though Hillary Clinton is no longer in charge of the State Department, some in the GOP continue to hold a grudge. Which is why they voted to removed the State Department from the approvals chain for pipelines that cross an international border. Hey, it's petty, but it's one of the few accomplishments the House can claim so far this year


Trillion-Ton Larsen C Iceberg Breaks Off Antarctic Ice Shelf

July 12th, 2017 | by Jeremy Bloom

The biggest iceberg in recorded history has broken off of Antarctica's Larsen C ice shelf, sending a trillion tons of ice into shipping lanes. If only somebody could tow this Larsen C iceberg to California, it would go a long way toward solving the Southwest's water shortages


California Governor Jerry Brown Trolls Trump At G20

July 9th, 2017 | by Jeremy Bloom

While President Trump was blowing off the G20 session on climate change to spend more than 2 hours chilling with Vlad Putin, California Governor Jerry Brown crashed the party in Hamburg (via video) to announce that California (with an economy bigger than France, bigger than the UK) would take the lead on hosting a Global Climate Summit in San Francisco next year


Privatization: Trump Wants To Sell Off US To Millionaires & The Saudis, Starting With Air Traffic Control

June 5th, 2017 | by Jeremy Bloom

President Trump says he's going to spend the next week pushing his so-called infrastructure proposals, which are actually just an excuse to sell off YOUR public assets to his buddies. He's putting lipstick on several pigs that have already been rejected by Republicans in Congress as terrible ideas, starting with the sell-off of the Air Traffic Control system
