NYC can and will adapt to 15 days of extremely hot weather following a storm that wrecks grid connections to upstate. That means more green and local power backups within the city and efficient use of Windows and roofs that reduce heat transmission into apartments and offices.

Local politics wherein the State uses NYC as a cash cow and the Port Authority and the PUCs as additional means of shearing the NYC sheep has to stop. It's murder, pure and simple.

Storms that battered Australia's east coast are a harbinger of things to come and a stark reminder of the need for a national effort to monitor the growing threat from climate change, coastal researchers warn.

My son in law built an efficient home in Oakland, CA. He halved his natural gas consumption and lived comfortably consuming 4MW-hours per year. He gave 1MW-hours of energy back to the grid for free (in those days PG&E kept the surplus for free). Having the ground floor temperature at 75F in the morning was great for barefoot grandparents and the grandkids. A luxury unknown since Roman times.
A well-insulated home with a high-efficiency air conditioner and programmable thermostat are only as effective as the person using it. A new study shows that people living in green dwellings who don't maximize their technology can lose half of the energy savings available to them.

The frog and the scorpion: retold by Trump as the scorpion and the GOP as the frog. Does anyone believe that Trump can control himself for long enough not to kill the GOP? for a week? for a month? for a minute.

He'll go down with the GOP, go to prison, be humiliated and DEAD BROKE.

There it is a free sensor system that 100,000 villages in India can use to get smart about agriculture. China obviously did not expect that advancing India's interests over China's would be what the'd get from today's anti-Imperialist, communist inspired ranting about 'reparations'.
Scientists have successfully installed the first wave of low-cost weather stations that are designed to provide critically needed information to farmers and other residents in developing countries. The stations are built largely with 3D-printed parts that can be easily replaced if they wear out in the field.

People are going to die because PUCs (pronounced Pukes) refuse to encourage local emergency solar electric power. On Walmarts, Costcos, food warehouses, condos, apartment roofs, schools, courthouses, firehouses, ... Somehow there always will be a string of 10-15 days of extreme heat/cold after grid failures caused by 'acts of god' and poor engineering understanding of the weather.

We don't need to run washers in the heat but HVAC that moves air and limits temperatures to less than 85F in spring/summer/fall and more than 40F in fall/winter/spring is essential.
California's power grid operators warned homes and business on Monday to conserve electricity as rising demand for air conditioning stoked by a record-setting heat wave across the U.S. Southwest tested the region's generating capacity.

Pristine? My posterior! Environmental law without science is what the Sierra Club and others who stop environmental progress want. Meanwhile they accuse others of denying science.
'Pristine' landscapes simply do not exist anywhere in the world today and, in most cases, have not existed for at least several thousand years. An exhaustive review of archaeological data from the last 30 years provides details of how the world's landscapes have been shaped by repeated human activity over many thousands of years. The paper reveals a pattern of significant, long-term, human influence on the distribution of species across all of th...

Since many electricity sub stations will have to be raised above high water, the added expense of adding battery capacity, say 20% of peak load should add reliability during normal times and emergency capabilities that that the grid lacks. Net costs will be minimal unless the PUC-ups use a calculator supplied by the investment trust.
Installing a microgrid within a regulated electricity market will sometimes, but not always, provide an economic benefit to customers, investors and utilities involved, according to new research.
