Before big China climate conference, new Senate support for clean energy 28.9.2010 Gristmill
by Keith Schneider. I’ll be in Beijing later this week, and then on to Tianjin to cover China’s first U.N.-sponsored climate summit, which begins Oct. 4. Before leaving, though, I wanted to note that on September 22,  a group of Republican and Democratic senators sent a rare bipartisan signal to the world that the United States has not abandoned the hard work of reducing climate emissions and speeding the clean energy transition. The group introduced a bill to establish the first national renewable energy standard , requiring utilities to generate 15 percent of their energy from renewables by 2021. Wind, solar, ocean, geothermal, biomass, new hydropower, and methane produced from landfills would be considered renewable sources. The bill, which is modeled after similar legislation in effect in 31 states and approved by the House last year, is co-sponsored by Democratic Sens. Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall of New Mexico, Mark Udall (Colo.), and Republican Sens. Sam Brownback ...

No, nuclear power does not belong in the RES 28.9.2010 Grist Magazine
by David Roberts. Yesterday’s Washington Post editorial pretty well mirrors current centrist conventional wisdom on energy policy: carbon tax would have been best, cap-and-trade would have been second best, and the renewable electricity standard (RES) now before the Senate would be third best. However, say centrists, the RES should be expanded into a “Clean Energy Standard,” allowing other low-carbon energy sources like nuclear and natural gas to qualify. “The government interest is in reducing climate change,” say the editors. “The goal therefore is low-carbon electricity generation.” This change is widely considered a prerequisite for getting serious support for the policy from conservatives, who are perpetually tumescent when it comes to nuclear power. Still, it remains a bad idea, one that reflects a common confusion about the purpose of an RES. A price on carbon is designed to drive down emissions by whatever means turn out to be most ...

Expert says 50 percent of spilled BP oil remains in Gulf 28.9.2010 Gristmill
by Randy Rieland. No one knows for sure how much oil is still sitting in the Gulf of Mexico. But oceanographer Ian MacDonald sure isn’t buying the Obama administration’s sunny spin that 75 percent of it is gone. He suspects it’s still pretty gooey out there under the sea. Crude swings:  Yesterday MacDonald, a Florida State University professor, told the presidential commission investigating the BP spill that most of what’s left is “a highly durable material that resists further dissipation.” And he added: Much of it is now buried in marine and coastal sediments ... with scant evidence for bacterial degradation of this material prior to burial. In another highlight of the commission’s hearing in Washington, Michael Bromwich, head of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, raised speculation that the deepwater drilling moratorium in the Gulf will be lifted before its November 30 end date when he said he will be sending his ...
