+Dan Yurman says we should be cautious about "rose colored" views on small modular #nuclear  reactors ( #SMRs ). What do you think?

Can #solar  pumps link #electricity  access efforts & irrigation needs in rural #India ? Our Energy For Human Development column explores the links between efforts to tackle energy poverty and fuel rural development...
Over 300 million people in India lack access to electricity. Increasing energy access has become an economic opportunity, with companies providing off-grid (i.e., solar lanterns or solar home systems) or microgrid solutions (localized, small-scale generation typically serving residential loads).

Climate Change News Stories  - 
 
Did you know LBJ was the first American president to issue a warning about rising CO2 emissions? Well now you know. And #KnowingIsHalfTheBattle
Fifty years ago this month President Lyndon Baines Johnson voiced concern over invisible fossil fuel emissions in a special message to Congress. It was the first time a United States president warned the nation about the possible dangers of our carbon habit.

Global crude #oil  prices tumbled in the fourth quarter of 2014. Details from the EIA at +The Energy Collective
Crude oil prices fell sharply in the fourth quarter of 2014 as robust global production exceeded demand. After reaching monthly peaks of $112 per barrel (bbl) and $105/bbl in June, crude oil benchmarks Brent and West Texas Intermediate (WTI) fell to $62/bbl and $59/bbl in December, respectively.

#Carbon  negative cities by 2030? Noah Deich says we can get there. What do you think? 
Today, the world’s cities are a major source of greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions. With urban populations expected to continue growing, cities’ exposure to climate change will only get worse unless they break away from this GHG-emitting status quo.

#Hydrogen  vs. #Electricity : what will fuel the next generation of advanced vehicles?

#automotive   #carshow   #cleantech   #EVs    
Last month I attended the "policy day" at the Washington Auto Show, which typically emphasizes green cars. Yet while the environmental benefits of EVs and other advanced vehicles are a major factor in their proliferation, I didn't hear much about how the energy for these new car types would be produced.

+Barry Brook & +Ben Heard make the case for #nuclear   #energy  in #Australia
The Premier of South Australia, Labor’s Jay Weatherill, has announced a Royal Commission into an expanded future role for the state in nuclear energy. For people those of us who are both strongly focused on tackling climate change and who consider nuclear to be an essential tool, this is real progress.

#Oil   #Prices : is this a 'dead cat bounce' or have crude markets really reached bottom?
I have noticed that when oil prices are plummeting, traders tend to ignore bullish news, and when they are climbing bearish news is often shrugged off. While oil could resume its decline this month, the fact that the price of WTI rose despite news that should have sent it lower may indicate that we have passed the bottom.

Oil will recover when millions of barrels is removed from the supply chain, and not a minute before. Recent rally has no fundamental support, but lots of emotion and speculation.

+Jim Pierobon says EPA's new #CoalAsh  rule shouldn't let #utilities  off the hook! Here's why...
For a President who likes to champion cleaner, safer and cost effective energy and environmental solutions, it caught some by surprise when Barack Obama’s EPA punted on December 19th on classifying toxic coal ash as a hazardous waste which would have set stringent disposal requirements.
