South Korean Farmer’s son becomes billionaire after early bet on wind power


Gim, 67, the son of a farmer, is now one of the wealthiest people in South Korea. The 51% stake in the company he owns with his family is valued at $1.4 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

“Gim was quick to identify the growth potential globally,” said Han Byung-hwa, an analyst at Seoul-based Eugene Investment & Securities Co. “The industry has seen faster growth than other traditional businesses.”

More and more investment is being redirected towards renewable energy, so much so that even oil companies are investing. This was not an overnight success but hard work and lots of innovation along the way. Wind turbines are generating more and more power per turbine, and the cost per kW keeps falling. It bodes well for the future as predictions show renewable energy producing more power by 2050 than others forms of generation combined. Already last year for the EU we say renewable energy producing more real power than either Nuclear or coal.

Windfarms in Great Britain break record for clean power generation


Forty per cent of Friday’s electricity was generated in windfarms thanks to blustery winter weather
Blustery winter weather helped Great Britain’s windfarms set a record for clean power generation, which made up more than 40% of its electricity on Friday.
Wind turbines generated 17.3GW on Friday afternoon, according to figures from the electricity system operator, narrowly beating the previous record set in early January this year.

Technology vs Politics

On august 14, 2018, Joshua Novacheck, a 30-year-old research engineer for the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory, was presenting the most important study of his nascent career. He couldn’t have known it yet, but things were about to go very wrong.

At a gathering of experts and policy makers in Lawrence, Kansas, Novacheck was sharing the results of the Interconnections Seam Study, better known as Seams. The Seams study demonstrated that stronger connections between the U.S. power system’s massive eastern and western power grids would accelerate the growth of wind and solar energy—hugely reducing American reliance on coal, the fuel contributing the most to climate change, and saving consumers billions. It was an elegant solution to a complicated problem.

Democrats in Congress have recently cited NREL’s work to argue for billions in grid upgrades and sweeping policy changes. But a study like Seams was politically dangerous territory for a federally funded lab while coal-indu

Du vent me danse la tête
Je do do dodeline
Traverse une rue un fleuve
Une mauvaise passe une crise
Rien jamais ni personne
Ne me porte aussi bien
Que l'air assez remué

D'aptère qui va à pied
Sans gâcher le hasard
Difficile à mirer

Analysis from a global energy organization said power generation from coal-fired units fell 8.3% in the first half of 2020, with the world’s coal fleet running at less than half its capacity. The drop for U.S. coal generation was more steep, with the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reporting the output from the nation’s coal […]

The guardian has a piece on New Emperor Penguin Colonies dicovered in Antartica.

There is an open paper published at ZSL ::

Discovery of new colonies by Sentinel2 reveals good and bad news for emperor penguins


The paper is quite accessible and describes the studies methods (how to) really clearly.
Essentially no one got cold but headaches from the eye strain, must have been constant !

The dark irony of this is that most of the new (and small) colonies are vulnerable to our activities .
Those colonies are about as far as you can get from humans and still be on earth.

(Great just in time for the bookeeping.)

Business as usual can not go on.

That would be beyond criminal.

Beyond human.

Biden Pledges $2T in Clean Energy and Infrastructure Spending


Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, further detailed the clean energy and infrastructure plans he would pursue if elected, including $2 trillion in spending over four years.
The $2 trillion pledge is a big increase over the plan Biden unveiled during the Democratic primary, in which he outlined clean energy spending of $1.7 trillion over a decade. The Biden campaign has also significantly shortened the timeline in which it would work to achieve 100 percent clean electricity nationwide, moving from his initial target of 2050 during the primary to a new deadline of 2035.

Last week, a coalition led by Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders released a set of policy recommendations meant to set the agenda for a Democratic White House. That plan includes carbon-free power by 2035, as well as a “moonshot” effort on transmission lines, battery storage and other clean energy provisions.

Can the Clean Energy Industry Deliver on the Biden-Sanders Climate Plan?


After effectively clinching the Democratic presidential primary, Joe Biden's campaign began work with Senator Bernie Sanders in May to create a “unity task force.” The group hoped to propose policies that appeal to moderates and progressives alike, uniting Democrats ahead of the 2020 election.
The task force’s climate-change mitigation recommendations, out this week, push further than any policy proposed in previous general election platforms. They call for carbon-free power production by 2035, net-zero emissions for new buildings by 2030 and accelerated adoption of zero-emission vehicles. The authors frame the national climate response as a matter of equity for communities that have suffered disproportionately from pollution and climate impacts, as well as a form of economic rebuilding after the coronavirus pandemic.

The climate task force brought together Democrats from across the political spectrum to hash out a shared vision for action on climate... Show more...

Time well spent - don't miss it.

Planet of the Humans, a documentary that dares to say what no one else will this Earth Day — that we are losing the battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road — selling out the green movement to wealthy interests and corporate America. This film is the wake-up call to the reality we are afraid to face: that in the midst of a human-caused extinction event, the environmental movement’s answer is to push for techno-fixes and band-aids. It's too little, too late.

“Think about wind,” says Ching. “It can blow open doors, blow cool air off a body of water to the land surrounding it, or fire from one part of the forest to another. The door analogy relates to TCM’s understanding of how exposure to wind can weaken our body’s defenses.”(Perhaps as a permutation of these ideas, East Asia has numerous ancillary superstitions about air and wind, the most notable of which is a deathly fear of sleeping in rooms with running electric fans, a belief that has its epicenter in Korea, where “fan death” phobia remains rampant even today.)
