95 percent of Germans want more renewable energies 
Ninety-five percent of Germans say that increased use and expansion of renewable energy is important or very important, according to a representative survey by Kantar Emnid, commissioned by Renewable Energies Agency (AEE). It also found broad support (65 percent) for renewable energy installations in respondents’ direct neighbourhoods (5km radius), which increased further if they already had experience with such installations in their area.

Energy Democracy In 4 Powerful Steps

August 14th, 2017 by John Farrell

SNIPPET:


There’s no question that the energy system is undergoing change. One need look no further than the 1 million solar rooftops in the US or — for the wonky — the source of new power capacity in the US over the past 15 years. In 2003, just 20% of new electric capacity came from renewable power plants. In the last eight years, it’s been at or over 60% almost every year. In the first three quarters of 2016, 16% of our new power capacity came from distributed solar alone (such as home rooftop solar arrays).


But few people realize that the change from fossil fuels to renewable sources is just a harbinger for a phase of massive disruption in energy markets. The disruption will remake how the energy system serves its users and offer unprecedented choices for customers. It may go further than choice.  As the energy system shifts away from the outdated utility monopoly model, the four Ds of energy democracy — distributed power, decentralization, democracy from ownership, and disruptive technology — have the potential to put those users in charge and allow them to reap the economic benefits.

Rocky Mountain Institute celebrated our 35th anniversary on August 3, 2017. RMI and special guests, friends, and supporters gathered to recognize 35 years of transforming global energy use at our award-winning Innovation Center, in Basalt, Colorado.

Hurricanes Clear The Way For Tesla To Power Puerto Rico & The Caribbean

October 2nd, 2017 by Steve Hanley

Natural disasters create destruction and pain, but also open doors to opportunity. The tsunami that destroyed the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan changed that country’s mind about relying on nuclear energy to create electricity. The devastation visited upon Puerto Rico and several other islands in the Caribbean this year has left their electrical grids in ruins. While that has created  hardships for the residents, it has opened the door to discussing whether renewable energy companies like Tesla can and should be part of the rebuilding process.

The Political Storm About To Hit US

October 6th, 2017 by George Harvey

SNIPPET:

Looking out my window here in Vermont, I can see the storm clouds are gathering, and they are not pretty. There are two storms that I see, but they are are not weather. I hope they will not hit here too badly. I expect one will hit Washington D.C. pretty hard. And with it, I expect the Republican Party will be hurting.

The first is economic, and it relates to the energy industries. It is already well underway.

Full well written and logically sound article:

I'm afraid this storm will get much worse before it gets better. The Republican Congress has no intention to impeach a man who still has sizable support from their base. Why would they? He's removing business, social and environmental rules that suit them just fine. Meanwhile, extremist judges keep getting appointed. North Korea and Iran could turn into a real nightmare. Republicans don't have the balls to step back from their deal with the Orange Devil. Democrats continue to be corporate-owned, nice and spineless.
It's going to get much worse before it gets better. Apparently this is what stupid and lazy American voters need.

If the tax breaks for the rich fall apart the GOP will find itself unfunded. The donners have been very out spoken about that fact. I was just looking for a story I saw on that the other day. I think it was on TYT but I didn't see it on their you tube page. Anyway the video I saw had quotes from GOP donners which where very much along the lines of quid quo pro statements about wanting results. They are getting very in your face about the fact that they bought the government and I wonder how long the courts can turn a blind eye to it.
My advice is get to a point where you are as self reliant as possible. If things get ugly on a global scale the avg person on the streets will feel the pain. I think the great depression might look good compared to what is ahead of us. My grandfather always said the depression wasn't bad here on the farm they grew all their own food and only needed a few stables like flower and sugar which they could bater for so they got by ok. But alot of other people in town who couldn't raise their own food where not so lucky. Looking forward I think about that lesson alot and think how can I limit my dependency on purchased goods.

Yes, it is going to get uglier and uglier. The polluters go away or humanity perishes.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr:
Quote
In the next decade there will be an epic battle for survival for humanity against the forces of ignorance and greed. It’s going to be Armageddon, represented by the oil industry on one side, versus the renewable industry on the other. And people are going to have to choose sides – including politically.

They will have to choose sides because oil and coal, they will not be able to survive – they are not going to be able to burn their proven reserves. If they do, then we are all dead. And they are quite willing to burn it.

We’re all going to be part of that battle. We are going to watch governments being buffeted by the whims of money and greed on one side, and idealism and hope on the other.
