Just don't call it 'climate change': Rebranding government in the age of Trump 26.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • “Climate change” is out. “Resilience” is in. “Victims of domestic violence” are now “victims of crime.” Foreign aid for refugee rights has become aid to protect “national security.” “Clean energy investment” has been transformed into just plain “energy” investment. The federal government is undergoing a rebranding under President Donald Trump — although not all at his direction. As Trump sets new priorities for Washington sharply at odds with what the town has seen for the past eigh...

Partial eclipse of the heat; Switch helps Best Buy 26.5.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
Partial eclipse of the heat; Switch helps Best Buy Best Buy got a boost from Mario and Luigi in the first quarter, as demand for Nintendo’s Switch game console helped the retailer post a surprising gain in sales. California now relies so much on solar power that on Thursday, state officials urged residents to turn off unneeded lights and unplug appliances during the Aug. 21 solar eclipse. Even though the sun will be only partially obscured in California, the eclipse at its mid-morning peak will slash the output of the state’s solar power plants by roughly 60 percent. Managers of the electricity grid could easily compensate by firing up small power plants that burn natural gas — and emit greenhouse gases. “Join with us and stand in for the sun while it takes a short break,” said Michael Picker, president of the Public Utilities Commission, in a press release.

Lights out! Eclipse to cut solar power in California 26.5.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
California now relies so much on solar power that on Thursday, state officials urged residents to turn off unneeded lights and unplug appliances during the Aug. 21 solar eclipse. Even though the sun will be only partially obscured in California, the eclipse at its midmorning peak will slash the output of the state’s solar power plants by more than 60 percent. Managers of the state’s electricity grid could easily compensate by firing up small power plants that burn natural gas and, unlike solar facilities, emit greenhouse gases. “Join with us and stand in for the sun while it takes a short break on August 21,” said Michael Picker, president of the Public Utilities Commission, in a press release. Electricity output from solar facilities ramps up quickly during the morning and plateaus around 11 a.m. But beginning just after 9 a.m. on Aug. 21, the eclipse will take a significant bite out of the morning ramp.
