Solutions to the climate crisis are available now – a world powered by 100% renewable energy is possible.

Aspen, Colorado is one of many towns, cities, businesses and other institutions switching to 100% clean, renewable energy.

The solutions are here, now we just need leaders willing to take #ClimateAction.

@RexRed,
There's nothing unusual about that Rex. They are the only ones who know anything about it.

Health and Welfare sections in media are cobbled together by doctors. People with close links to banking produce the financial sections.

Sport is in the hands of people in sport. Have you ever seen an article written by somebody who says football is just a bunch of chaps chasing a ball around a field. Which is what it is.

Aspen has a population of 6000. When you can show us a green NYC we might take some notice. Do the visitors use green energy to get to the place?

This is Able to Know. It's not Able to be Bamboozled.

Union warns House Democrats of retaliation for opposing Keystone XL
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/04/12/union-warns-house-democrats-retaliation-for-opposing-keystone-xl/

Of course Fox News is behind such tripe.

What about the jobs ALTERNATIVE energy would create?

These very same unions and Fox News have squelched these projects.

Ignore these GOP jerks.

BRAVO, FRANCE! In a huge blow to fracking, France's highest court has just upheld the country's ban on fracking, defeating a legal challenge from an American company. http://ow.ly/pJk5h

Schuepbach Energy, a US-based company, tried to overturn the French Parliament's decision to ban fracking, but the high court's ruling ensures that fracking will have no place in France. The stunning defeat is the latest reminder that unlike the US, fracking is facing an uphill battle in Europe, where growing unease over environmental concerns has led a number of governments to reign in the practice.

@RexRed,
Why don't you attack the demand problem Rex? The supply problem solves itself then.

Unless alternative energy is as efficient as fossil fuel energy its use will lose jobs to areas of the world where fossil fuels are used the most and it will be Checkout democracy calling the tune.

You could have import bans.

You are dealing with a matter way beyond your capacities. It's a schtick. A holier-than-thou, attention seeking gambit which won't stand up to even a tender critical appraisal. And your own personal consumption patterns will likely be in opposition to your virtue.

I think alternative energy will struggle to keep pace with the growth levels required for politicians to get elected and the DOW to remain buoyant and fund pensions.

Not when you have dirty energy paying politicians to look the other way. Then it doesn't matter if alternative energy was free it would still be squelched and corporate funded public propaganda will betray its benefits.

A nice invention would be making solar panels completely from sea water. Smile

They only look the other way because they fear Checkout Democracy.

But you are obviously unreachable Rex.

There are logical reasons for my schtick, not just big money.

#1, Clean energy is clean and renewable...

#2, Clean energy is far less detrimental to the earth.

Need I go further?

How Much Solar Energy Hits Earth?
http://www.ecoworld.com/energy-fuels/how-much-solar-energy-hits-earth.html

"Based on 27,878,400 square feet per square mile, sunlight bestows a whopping 12.2 trillion watt-hours per square mile per year."

"12.2 trillion watt-hours converts to 12,211 gigawatt-hours, and based on 8,760 hours per year, and 197 million square miles of earth’s surface (including the oceans), the earth receives about 274 million gigawatt-years of solar energy, which translates to an astonishing 8.2 million “quads” of Btu energy per year."

YOU PROBABLY NEVER SAW THIS: A train carrying 2.7 million gallons of crude oil derailed and exploded in rural Alabama last week, but got scant media coverage. http://ow.ly/qKAtc

The derailment was one of the worst crude oil accidents in the US, dumping untold amounts of oil into surrounding wetlands and igniting flames 300 feet into the sky. Since there were no fatalities, the news received little media attention but it underscores yet again how dangerous transporting dirty crude across long distances can be.
