Now is the time to shift World Bank resources to clean energy 12.5.2010 Gristmill
The World Bank has just announced its intent to seek $86 billion for a general capital increase (the GCI) from its donor countries (see World Bank press release ). It is time for the World Bank to become a full part of the solution to global warming, not part of the problem and part of the solution at the same time. The World Bank needs to seize this opportunity to shift its energy investments to clean energy. The U.S. should only approve a contribution towards the Bank’s general capital increase if it secures a firm commitment to transition to clean energy. With the request of a general capital increase from the Bank, individual donor countries will now need to agree to fund this increase and commit to provide specific amounts. In the ...

Introducing the American Power Act: On strategy and substance 12.5.2010 Gristmill
Busy day here—started early with some curtain-raising morning television to kick off the discussion a bit about the American Power Act that Joe Lieberman [I-Conn.] and a unique coalition are talking about later today. But sometimes those morning show interviews are a bit of a reminder of how much detailed discussion we lose when we’re crammed into a two- or three- or five-minute back and forth, which is especially tough on an issue like a comprehensive approach to climate and energy. Which brings me to why I wanted to come by Grist—because of the in-depth discussions you’ve already had here again and again on this issue. But—and here’s the but—I don’t want to swing by and just sort of preach ...

Moving Our Nation Beyond Petroleum 12.5.2010 Commondreams.org Views
by Daphne Wysham

A golden opportunity is bubbling up beneath that undersea volcano of oil spewing thousands of gallons per day into the Gulf of Mexico. We have a chance to truly move our country, as BP says in its ad campaigns, "beyond petroleum." Despite the spill's devastation, President Barack Obama continues to claim we must push forward with more offshore drilling - albeit with stronger safeguards - if we want to increase our energy security.

Northwestern Students Turn Plastic Crap into Clean Electricity 12.5.2010 GOOD
Student researchers at Northeastern University have designed an apparatus to convert plastic waste into clean energy without releasing harmful emissions.... Self-sustainability is the key to the double-tank combustor design. Plastic waste is first processed in an upper tank through pyrolysis, which converts solid plastic into gas. Next, the gas flows to a lower tank, where it is burned with oxidants to generate heat and steam. The heat sustains the combustor while the steam can be used to generate electric power. ...

Defenders of Wildlife

The following is a statement from Rodger Schlickeisen, president and CEO of Defenders of Wildlife:

"It's ludicrous to compare the dangers posed by risky, dirty offshore oil and gas drilling with the footprints of clean, safe renewable energy sources like wind and solar.
