Obama's India visit: Hopes for clean energy and climate deals 23.1.2015 Guardian: Environment

US president and Indian prime minister Narendra Modi expected to roll out a raft of clean energy initiatives for India’s polluted cities, with a post-2020 climate deal also high on Obama’s agenda

Barack Obama was advised, only half-jokingly, to wear a gas mask when he appears as guest of honour at India’s Republic Day parade on Monday. The air pollution in Delhi and other Indian cities has become that bad.

With this attack on community energy the 'big six' win out over big society 23.1.2015 Guardian: Environment
By changing the rules, this government has sabotaged the promise of a UK community energy revolution and secured the dominance of the ‘big six’ energy companies You would think the government had invented community. When David Cameron became prime minister, he announced that “my great passion is building the big society ... We need to create communities with oomph – neighbourhoods who are in charge of their own destiny, who feel if they club together and get involved they can shape the world around them.” Since then, ministers have scarcely been able to finish a sentence without using the word community. But their commitment turns out to be as hollow as the other famous claim Cameron made in his big society speech: “we’re all in this together”. Local communities will be able to take control of their energy bills and help transform the energy system ... In the future, the generation of electricity by communities themselves could put pressure on energy suppliers to drive down prices, creating warmer homes, ...

Kline opposes Obama's idea for free community college 22.1.2015 MinnPost
On the chutzpah front: Rep. John Kline has no time for the President’s free community college idea. Allison Sherry of the Strib says , “Less than 12 hours after President Barack Obama touted an idea to provide free community college to some students, the chairman of the House Education Committee had a message: No new federal programs. Republican Rep. John Kline, who represents Minnesota's Second Congressional District and is at the helm of the Education Committee, said he wasn't interested in taking on the president's proposal to make community college free. Kline said he didn't agree with the how the White House planned to pay for it — by increasing capital gains taxes — and he didn't think a new federal program was the way to move forward.” No mention in the story of any close association with for-profit colleges. On second thought. At Canada’s TSN.com they’re saying , “According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, the NHL is set to announce the Colorado Avalanche and Minnesota Wild will be hosting ...

Following Al Gore and Pharrell Williams’ Live Earth 2015 announcement today, we round up nine other reasons to feel happy ahead of crunch climate talks in Paris this December

Banish your memories of the slightly cringy Live Earth concerts held seven years ago at Wembley stadium and around the world. This time, “instead of just having people perform, we literally are going to have humanity harmonise all at once,” Williams promised on Wednesday, standing alongside Al Gore. The sequel, intended to galvanise action on climate change, lands on 18 June, with the 100+ acts TBC.

Householders hoping to get green deal assessments are out of pocket 20.1.2015 Guardian: Environment
