  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

apple in solar

“We know that climate change is real,” Cook said on Tuesday. “Our view is that the time for talk has passed, and the time for action is now. We’ve shown that with what we’ve done.”

What Apple Just Did in Solar Is a Really Big Deal - Bloomberg Business

Apple isn't investing in solar as a gift to humanity. It's doing it because it's a good business deal, Cook stressed at the Goldman Sachs conference. "We expect to have very significant savings," he said.

fossil fuel subsidies - why???

Fossil-fuel subsidies outpace renewable-energy subsidies by a factor of 6 to 1!!!!!!!!!!

And some poorly informed people complain about solar subsidies - which are being or have been dropped.

With the enormous cost to health of fossil fuels:
air quality => breathing prb and diseases
mercury => polluted oceans, land, and arctic (loss of birds - thin shells)
sulfur dioxide => acid rain => loos of forests and fish

draining the aquifers

All over the world, underground aquifers are being drained rapidly. In fact, according to the Washington Post, 21 out of the 37 largest aquifers in the world “have passed their sustainability tipping points”…

The world’s largest underground aquifers – a source of fresh water for hundreds of millions of people — are being depleted at alarming rates, according to new NASA satellite data that provides the most detailed picture yet of vital water reserves hidden under the Earth’s surface.



Twenty-one of the world’s 37 largest aquifers — in locations from India and China to the United States and France — have passed their sustainability tipping points, meaning more water was removed than replaced during the decade-long study period, researchers announced Tuesday. Thirteen aquifers declined at rates that put them into the most troubled category. The researchers said this indicated a long-term problem that’s likely to worsen as reliance on aquifers grows.

Wind power groth in EU


Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

he European Union installed record wind-power capacity in 2015 as the technology leapfrogged hydropower to become the third-biggest source of electricity in the 28-nation bloc.

Germany’s market led the growth, installing 47 percent of the 12.8-gigawatts of new wind power capacity across the region, the European Wind Energy Association said Tuesday in an e-mailed report. Record offshore installations canceled out a dip in new onshore machines. That pushed the total for 2015 above the 12.1 gigawatts registered in 2014.

“Wind power accounts for one-third of all new power installations since 2000
in the EU,” the association said. “Conventional power sources such as fuel oil and coal continue to decommission more capacity than they install.”
Wind energy is booming in Europe as member states strive to lower emissions by 40 percent in the four decades through 2030 to fight climate change. As costs come down, onshore wind is becoming more competitive with traditional forms of power generation, enabling developers and policymakers to glimpse a subsidy-free future.

Investors poured a record 26.4 billion euros ($29.3 billion) into wind across Europe in 2015, boosted by a doubling of expenditure in the offshore sector, according to wind association. The EU may see a dip in grid connections for both onshore and offshore wind this year as growth in the industry slows, according to Oliver Joy, a spokesman for EWEA.

While offshore wind may rebound in 2017, “the outlook for onshore is less clear due to regulatory uncertainty in some member states,” Joy said in an e-mail. “It is likely that Germany will move to a tendering system while the future of support in countries such as the U.K., Poland and Spain remains unsure. Investors and industry still need policy clarity post-2020.”
Paris Deal




Renewables were given a fillip in December when 195 nations agreed for the first time to a climate treaty that is binding on all countries. The EU target for renewables to account for 27 percent of energy consumption by 2030 is binding only at a bloc-wide level, without objectives for individual member states.

Last year, wind accounted for 44 percent of new generating capacity across the EU. The bloc’s 141.6 gigawatts of wind turbines now account for 15.6 percent of its power capacity, compared to 15.5 percent for hydro power, according to the report. Gas leads on 21.1 percent, followed by coal on 17.5 percent.

After Germany, the biggest markets in 2015 were Poland, with 9.9 percent of EU installations, France on 8.4 percent and the U.K. on 7.6 percent. One-time European leader Spain installed no new wind capacity last year.
