Solar Policy Can Advance (Or Delay) Grid Parity By A Decade

In their excellent interactive graphic, Bloomberg Energy Finance calls solar grid parity (when electricity from solar costs less than grid power) the “golden goal.” It’s an excellent illustration of how the right energy policy can help a nation go gold on solar or wallow in metallurgical obscurity. In the case of the U.S., it may mean delaying grid parity by eight years.

China’s Decade Plan for Water:

China has pledged 4 trillion yuan, roughly $600 billion, to be spent over the next decade, with the stated goals of avoiding a water shortage, with the resulting threat to economic growth, and ensuring safe drinking water. In addition, there is the recurring problem of droughts in the North and flooding in the South due to excess rain fall and the construction of numerous water transfer projects have been suggested as a way of combating this problem with one costing $60 billion targeted at bringing water to areas around Beijing. Another large project is the protection of the Three Gorges Dam, an estimated $22.5 billion would be needed fortify it from “geological disasters and pollution” since although it is heralded as a “symbol of engineering prowess”, its 600 kilometers spans geological fault lines and it would be devastating to the reservoir if an earthquake were to occur.

Buying Clothes Without Plastic. We Ask. Companies Listen.

What I didn’t know was that most of prAna’s clothing (like almost all brands of clothing these days) was delivered to the store and to mail-order customers individually wrapped in plastic baggies. When you buy off the rack, you don’t see the plastic that has been removed by store staff. But after pressure from prAna staff and customers, the company has now begun to phase out the polybags and sell some of their clothes simply rolled up and tied with raffia. Check out this video explaining why and how prAna made the switch:

Arctic Sea Ice Hits Maximum Extent for 2012

Of particular concern is that the ice is declining in volume as well as extent. This winter, ice was only about 10 to 30 centimeters (4 to 12 inches) thick at most, according to Walt Meier of the National Snow and Ice Data Center. “So it will all melt away very quickly,” he says — and as it melts away more completely, so it becomes harder for it to reform, creating what NSIDC Director Mark Serreze has called an “overall downward spiral.”

World Water Day Wrap-Up Video

Every year on March 22nd, the UN-Water partnership of 28 different UN organizations celebrates World Water Day as a way to focus public attention on key water-related issues and the need to sustainably manage freshwater resources. It was held in Rome.

One day per year is simply not enough of a spotlight for this cause.

EPA to impose first greenhouse gas limits on power plants:

These new greenhouse gas rules may effectively end new coal power plants.

Industry officials and environmentalists said in interviews that the rule, which comes on the heels of tough new requirements that the Obama administration imposed on mercury emissions and cross-state pollution from utilities within the past year, dooms any proposal to build a coal-fired plant that does not have costly carbon controls.
