Adviser differs with coal-loving president 27.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • President Donald Trump has vowed to revive the coal industry and regularly promises to “put our miners back to work.” But one of his top White House advisers apparently does not share Trump’s affinity for coal. Economic adviser Gary Cohn says, “Coal doesn’t even really make that much sense anymore as a feedstock.” Cohn made the remarks while briefing reporters Thursday night on Air Force One. He singled out natural gas as “such a cleaner fuel” and said the U.S. could become a “manuf...

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.

Trump Administration Says It Isn't Anti-Science as It Seeks to Slash EPA Science Office 25.5.2017 Truthout.com

(Photo: Gabriella Demczuk / The New York Times) When the city of Toledo temporarily lost access to clean drinking water several years ago after a bloom of toxic algae, the Environmental Protection Agency sent scientists from its Office of Research and Development to study health effects and formulate solutions. The same office was on the front lines of the Flint water crisis and was a critical presence in handling medical waste from the U.S. Ebola cases in 2014. Thomas Burke, who directed ORD during the last two years of the Obama administration and was the agency's science adviser, calls the office the nation's "scientific backstop in emergencies." President Trump's 2018 budget would slash ORD's funding in half as part of an overall goal to cut the EPA's budget by 31 percent. A statement from EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt did not directly address the cuts to ORD, but offered ...

Agency takes tectonics study to earthquake-prone Alaska 25.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Anchorage, Alaska • Alaska averages 40,000 earthquakes per year, with more large quakes than the other 49 states combined, and America’s shakiest state is about to have its ground examined like never before. A federal agency that supports basic science research is completing installation in Alaska of an array of seismometers as part of its quest to map the Earth’s upper crust beneath North America. When the magnitude 9.2 Great Alaska Earthquake ripped through the state in 1964, there were two se... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
