Leveraging Technology To Settle The Climate Change Debate

December 31st, 2016 | by Kyle Field

Climate change is a challenge unlike any other ever faced by humanity. It is the slow creep of change starting as a result of actions taken by humanity, building industries that helped hoist us out of thousands of years of toil into decades of technology-enabled prosperity


BLM Saves Desert Solar From Trump

November 28th, 2016 | by Susan Kraemer

Within days after the catastrophic electoral college win of an autocrat with promised climate ruin, the Obama Administration Bureau of Land Management (BLM) finalized new competitive auctions for desert solar leases with the same safeguards as those for oil and gas leases


How to Prevent Trump’s Climate Ruin

November 18th, 2016 | by Susan Kraemer

A leading world power has been taken hostage by a learning-disabled internet troll who can send civilization to climate ruin. Many are feeling devastated and hopeless


Cleantech With A President Trump

November 9th, 2016 | by Zachary Shahan

The US presidential election is over. I know many of you are waiting for my initial comments on what this means for cleantech. Donald Trump's candidacy has been so devoid of specific policy proposals, he has flip-flopped so many times on a large variety of issues, and he has so little (er ... no) experience in government, that this question is more up in the air than not. Nonetheless, I will present several documented facts, some probabilities, and some pure speculation in the article below


48 New National EV Charging Corridors — Thank You, President Obama

November 7th, 2016 | by Cynthia Shahan

The Obama administration has been on a role advancing EV charging across the US. The latest news from the administration is that the United State Department of Transportation (DOT) is establishing 48 national electric vehicle charging corridors. Thank you, President Obama, and we hope you and Michelle will be driving in an all-electric vehicle soon as well.


The Irony

November 5th, 2016 | by Zachary Shahan

We're on the verge of electing the first female president in US history (long after women won the top political positions in the UK, Germany, Norway, Argentina, Israel, India, Sri Lanka, Jamaica, Portugal, Yugoslavia, Ukraine, Lithuania, Bangladesh, France, Poland, Turkey, Pakistan, Peru, etc.). Yet, her final opponent has bragged about sexually assaulting women and has been accused of doing so by a dozen or more women


30 Cases Of Anti-Humanity Extremism From Republicans In Congress & Donald Trump

November 2nd, 2016 | by Zachary Shahan

Clearly, the political focus of the year is a certain mind-boggling presidential candidate who hardly touches policy matters -- and when he does, tends to push absurd ideas and proposals that would tank our economy, lead to world war, destroy our climate and environment, and piss off our allies. However, as I wrote the other day, Donald Trump's success in politics wasn't magic -- far from it. Donald Trump's success in politics was built on the back of decades worth of conspiracy theories and anti-science rhetoric and extremism from the Republican Party. (Come on, people, there's a reason he won the GOP nomination.)


Solar For After Dark: How CSP Works

October 31st, 2016 | by Susan Kraemer

Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) is the form of solar that can store the sun's energy thermally for on-demand electricity generation. CSP is clean energy, like solar PV or wind, but the back end or the power block works like any thermal energy power station (coal, natural gas, and nuclear power plants are thermal energy power stations). The difference is that instead of digging up a finite fuel from the earth, CSP harvests sunlight to make thermal energy


How America Sets Energy Policies

October 26th, 2016 | by Roy L Hales

37 years ago, the United States was poised on the edge of an energy revolution. The interdepartmental plan that Dr. Allan Hoffman presented President Jimmy Carter outlined how the nation could derive 20% of its power from renewables (principally wind & solar) by the year
