Climate Change News Stories  - 
Bonn, 29 July 2015 – Monaco has submitted its new climate action plan to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). This Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) comes well in advance of a new universal climate change agreement which will be reached at the UN climate conference in Paris, in December this year. This INDC and all others submitted by countries are available on the UNFCCC website here. Including Monaco, 50 part...

Monaco's like a square kilometer or so. There's not much they can do about climate. They're pretty much piggybacking France.

New Solar Panel Technologies Drive Down Costs
http://solarlove.org/new-solar-panel-technologies-drive-costs/
New solar panel technologies are poised to drive down the cost of solar energy. Perovskite panels and organic solar panels cost much less to manufacture.

Seems like false economy if the perovskites are half the cost of silicon solar panels per watt, but don’t even last half as long.   They don’t even last 1/100 as long.  The perovskites will cost more per kWh generated over their miserably short lives.  

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/06/150602130426.htm
“Before, the cells would lose the ability to efficiently convert sunlight into electricity after a couple of days. Now, their efficiency remains high for more than 35 days.”

When researchers figure out how to make perovskites last long enough to be worthwhile, then we can see if it’s still half the cost of silicon per watt.  I suspect not.

Global daily rainfall data now available from CHIRPS.
Data go back to 1981. Data are at 0.05 and 0.25 degrees resolution.  Seems to be approx one month behind real time
