#DirtyDenier$ Day 12: Rob Portman 19.8.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Despite his easy smile, when it comes to energy and climate, Sen. Rob Portman is a conflicted man. On the one hand, he's a cosponsor of a bipartisan Shaheen-Portman energy efficiency bill. It would help people waste less energy by promoting energy efficiency measures for homes and businesses. It would move us toward cleaner sources of energy, clean energy technologies and help promote clean energy jobs. On the other hand, Portman is a climate change denier who has fought efforts to address this growing environmental challenge. On climate change, Portman has said : "When you analyze all the data, there is a warming trend according to science. But the jury is out on the degree of how much is manmade." That's not what scientists say; it's Portman who's trying to create a hung jury. Portman's record shows a pattern of anti-environment stances promoted by GOP leadership. He backed a measure to permanently block the Environmental Protection Agency from issuing any standards to limit greenhouse gases under the ...

The power of distributed power! 15.8.2014 Environmental News Network
Once upon a time when a big power plant retired, it was replaced by one as big or bigger. But not anymore. Energy efficiency is increasingly reducing the need for more power. And when it is needed, distributed generation may be enough. That's how utilities increasingly view the market, according to this year's Strategic Directions: U.S. Electric Industry report issued August 12 by Black & Veatch. The report is based on a survey of 576 utility leaders from May 7 to May 27.

Innovation: Key to Reducing Carbon Emissions 15.7.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Recently, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) unveiled a proposal to reduce carbon emissions aggressively -- by 30 percent below 2005 levels by 2030. It will create economic opportunities, improve public health especially among children and seniors, and curb the harmful impact of dirty power plants on the environment. It also avoids a potentially clumsy federal "one-size-fits-all" approach, by requiring and empowering each state to craft its own pollution reduction strategy. When each state is a laboratory, we are most likely to find the best practices. California is already leading the nation when it comes to bold action to cut carbon emissions. We are on target to cut carbon emissions statewide by 25 percent below 2005 levels by 2025. We are leaders in energy efficiency over recent decades -- it's estimated that we've lowered demand by 12.5 percent through efficiency, spurred by numerous policies including updated building efficiency standards and rebates for homeowners achieving energy ...
