Is Green Growth the Solution? (tags)
Just as every millimeter of social progress must be fought for against capital interests, the protection of nature and climate must also be won against the rulers. In these struggles lies the future of the planet.

Nonviolent Solar, Wind, Tidal Etc Reaching Critical Mass The Future Is Now (tags)
China is generating more windpower than all US nuclear power plants combined, as our nuclear plants have boric acid leaks, old equipment, lie on earthquake faults etc. Why don't we do more? Our money goes to corrupt billionaires and killing wars.

Solar Desalination with Brine Recovery Salt Pans Could Stop Desert Water Wars (tags)
If solar powered desalination plants had brine recovery salt pan attachments as in Point Paterson, Austrailia they would be a better option than trying to heist water from already overburdened aquifers as the SNWA has attempted for decades. The desalination plant of the future would be solar and wind powered and use the heat of the desert sun to evaporate the salt from the brine in salt pans creating zero waste. If our society can justify spending billions on unmanned CIA drones to bomb funeral processions in Afghanistan just to kill one Taliban we certainly can invest in our future here by replenishing our overtaxed aquifers through solar powered desalination.

Occupy LA, Day 56 - Last Camp Standing (tags)
LOS ANGELES, November 25, 2011 – While the mass hysteria of consumerism raged in shopping malls around the country, the occupiers of Solidarity Park provided a glimpse of a better way of life. The camp is now the last of the large camps remaining in the nation after police raids have evicted camps in most all other major cities. And with today’s late afternoon announcement by the mayor it seems there may only be two more days left for the camp in its present form and location.

Good and Bad Choices for Energy Policy and the Environmental Movement 2009-2010 (tags)
Two energy/environment phenomena are being widely discussed currently. These are global warming, and its mitigation, and the nuclear resurgence – the worldwide push to supply power with nuclear power plants. Careful study of these issues leads to the following conclusions: 1. Global warming is real and is causing harm. 2. Global warming is mostly due to heat production by human industry since the 1800s, from nuclear power and fossil fuels, better termed hydrocarbons, – coal, oil, natural gas. Greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2 play a minor role even though they are widely claimed the cause. 3. Both nuclear and hydrocarbon-based power must be eliminated to solve the global warming problem. 4. Nuclear power advocates have commandeered the global warming/greenhouse gas formula to promote nuclear power, based upon two errors: exaggerating the role of CO2 on the one hand and incorrectly claiming that nuclear power plants do not produce CO2 on the other hand. 5. Nuclear power can not be separated from nuclear weapons, which are essential to the consistent drive for American military dominationof the world. This is the reason for nuclear power. Nuclear power does not make sense as a safe, efficient, or economical way to provide energy. 6. Solar and solar-derived (wind, wave) sources of power do not add heat to the environment and can be used to supply virtually unlimited electrical energy without causing global warming. If done properly they will open up new vistas of human freedom and cultural development. They also produce much less CO2 than either nukes or hydrocarbons.
International Day of Climate Action in Eagle Rock (part 1) (tags)
In Eagle Rock, the 350 demonstration and public outreach had a turnout of at least 40 people. . . . In addition a large banner and colorful signs, a functioning solar cooker was displayed; and there was information about overpopulation; the significance of the number 350; literature from the Converging Storms Network; and a flyer announcing an upcoming screening of The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil, to be held in Glendale on December 4 (see: http://www.glendalepeacevigil.org/).
Fernando Suárez del Solár Speaks at “Senseless Death” Screening (tags)
In 2003 Jesús Suárez del Solár became one of the first U.S. victims of the current war in Iraq -- and his father, Fernando, expressed his anger and sadness at the loss of his son by joining the San Diego anti-war movement and becoming one of its most powerful activists. On July 8 the San Diego Public Library showed “A Senseless Death,” a 2006 documentary by a French-Canadian filmmaker that told the story of Jesús and other so-called “green-card soldiers,” immigrants (both documented and undocumented) lured into the U.S. military and promised citizenship in return for becoming cannon fodder for U.S. imperalism.

Solar Panels from Clorophyll ONE TENTH Cost of Silicone (tags)
Researchers at a New Zealand University have found a way to make solar panels from synthetic clorophyll which is one tenth the cost of silicone photo voltaic panels. It is in it's early stages of development and not on the market, but it is a huge discovery that is just what is needed to help reduce the world's pollution.

Nuclear Power is Green - NOT (tags)
Here is an article that talks of a new study that shows nuclear to be not green, and the study did not even take into account the huge cost of decommissioning the plants after thier 40 years of production which must be done with robots because of the extreme radiation. The author apparently also has not been informed of the new Solar Voltaic panels that bring the cost of solar equal to coal plants.
Cost of Solar Power Equal to Coal Now (tags)
The development at a South African University of a process to manufacture panels made with a much better material (CIGS) that generates electricity from sunlight at a lower cost than the silicone photo voltaic panels is what has been hoped for for decades. Solar power is no longer too expensive compared to coal plant generation.

We need jobs. We need new jobs. (tags)
I'm not the president or a presidential candidate (and I don't play one on television) but it seems to me to create new jobs, this country needs to create new industries. A tax cut to maintain the current status quo is just not going to change anything. If the demand for existing products isn't there now, why should the demand increase with a tax cut? How many new cars and television sets can any one person buy? Americans just can't keep buying more of what we already have. We've got to get a move on.

Weaning Off Fossil Fuels (tags)
American rooftops can be the Persian Gulf of solar energy. After Australia, no developed nation on Earth gets more annual sunlight than the United States. In addition, wind is now the fastest-growing energy source worldwide and one of the cheapest. But wind and solar power generate less than 2% of U.S. power. We can do better. We can increase auto fuel economy standards to 40 miles per gallon. The technology to achieve that goal exists now.
