San Francisco’s embrace of ‪‎hydrogen‬ and ‪fuel cell‬ technologies for local transportation just got a big boost from the federal government. The California city is moving forward with a high-speed hydrogen fuel cell passenger ferry and the world’s biggest hydrogen refueling station. Read my Inhabitat story for more. #Hydrogen #FuelCell
The Energy Department's (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) will direct nearly $4.5 million in funding for San Francisco's efforts to increase the deployment of fuel cell electric vehicles and hydrogen infrastructure.

Donald Trump and his Big Oil buddies aren't going to like this, but great news for the economy and the environment as there are now more U.S. jobs in solar energy than oil and gas. The clean energy workforce is predicted to grow even more if we meet our climate targets set forth in the Paris climate deal.
The number of U.S. jobs in solar energy overtook those in oil and natural gas extraction for the first time last year, helping drive a global surge in employment in the clean-energy business as fossil-fuel companies faltered.

▶ Climate Change/Environmental Issues  - 
 
Does Donald Trump understand that he can't just rip up the Paris climate agreement signed by nearly 200 nations? Or that he can't just stop the renewable energy boom after Congress extended the solar and wind tax credits? Trump has no understanding of climate change and clean energy policy.

He probably thinks since they all despise Obama, and this is why they've blocked almost everything he's tried to do, they will do what he wants? I Fucking Hate him!!

Great to see Bernie Sanders endorse Russ Feingold for U.S. Senate. Let's elect more Berniecrats to Congress! A Brand New Congress!

Trump thinks he can do whatever he wants, and as president, he can change everything.. I guess he thinks since he is white, he will be able to change things, unlike the "Kenyan" in the White House now?
I despise him, and he makes me sick to my stomach..
