The Northwest is known for setting the pace when it comes to energy efficiency. Just last week, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy named Oregon (#4) and Washington (#5) to its annual top ten states for energy efficiency.
Northwest consumers share that reputation, often recognizing and demanding energy efficiency in products before the rest of the country. That’s why, in late 2009, the nonprofit Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) partnered with the Environmental Protection Agency and the region’s electric utilities to create “Energy Forward,” aimed at helping consumers find the most energy-efficient televisions on the market. Energy Forward TVs carry distinctive orange stickers that identify them as the most technologically advanced, energy-efficient models available — basically, the best of the larger ENERGY STAR category.
The whole key to an efficient rooftop solar power system is finding the right roof in the right spot with the least shade, and now a team of scientists has developed a new system (a solar calculator) that can provide visual images of the rooftop solar potential for any existing building….
f you’re a regular reader of this blog or any other reasonable media outlet, you probably don’t need a reminder of how badly Fox News sucks. Well, okay, here’s another. In this amazing article, Media Matters breaks down ten falsehoods propagated by Fox News about the EPA, whom they lovingly refer to as agency “job terrorists” who are “strangling America.”
Wall Street, big oil, and American auto companies that took bailout money—you are all on notice.
The Occupy Wall Street Movement has now spread well beyond the confines of The Island of Manhattan. Occupy Movements have sprung up in just about every major city within the United States.
Forget “left-versus-right.” Or even arguments over taxes. The centerpiece of our current Phase Three of the American Civil War is the all-out campaign to discredit science.
Check out this great coverage of the Occupy Wall Street protests in NYC this weekend over on Red, Green, and Blue:
Yes, apparently Citibank thinks all press is good press, since it’s decided to arrest people rather than let them close their bank accounts. Jeremy Bloom reporting from Red, Green, and Blue:
Big oil gets big money from the government — as CleanTechnica readers may remember, $4 billion was awarded to big oil in the form of tax breaks in 2011 alone. Given that subsidies worldwide rose to at least $470 billion worldwide in 2010 — according to International Energy Agency analysts — that is perhaps more surprising than it should be.
As the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations unfold, Twitter has established itself as an important form of social media for communicating about the movement, just as it has done during the course of the Arab Spring uprisings. However, if you go and take a look at what is actually happening on the ground, a more full picture of the impact of Internet-based communication emerges. CleanTechnica visited Occupy Wall Street at Zuccotti Park in Manhattan earlier this week, and this is what we found.
Extending the Treasury Section 1603 grant program for another year would generate an additional 37,394 solar industry jobs in 2012 and some 2,000 megawatts (MW) of solar installations above baseline 2016 level, enough to provide clean, renewable power to 400,000 homes, according to a study produced for Solar Energy Industry Association (SEIA).
Most people don’t realize that it is they, the individual, that has the power to make real change. No one person can make a huge difference, but when a small group of caring individuals bands together to organize in favor of the change they wish to see, real, lasting transformation can happen. In fact, this is the only reason social movements have succeeded in the past.
Recently released reports show that, on at least two occasions, Shell had paid the Nigerian miltary substantial sums of money and that same military brutally repressed an area that just happened to be protesting Shell.
