Seven Things That Need to Happen to Keep Global Temperature Rise Below 2C 22.3.2017 Truthout.com
In late 2015, the world agreed to limit the global temperature rise to "well below 2C". Ever since the signing of the  Paris Agreement  on climate change,  scientists ,  think tanks  and  policymakers  have been scrambling to define exactly what meeting this temperature limit will mean in policy and investment terms. A new  report  released this week by the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is the latest attempt to address this question. Commissioned by the German government in its role this year as G20 president, the report sets out the "essential elements" needed to create an energy sector transition consistent with the Paris Agreement.

DOE Report: Solar Creates More US Electricity Jobs Than Oil, Gas, Coal, Nuclear Combined 7.3.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Washington DC—The US Department of Energy (DOE) issued its second annual US Energy and Employment Report (USEER)  in January of 2017, and the numbers didn't bode well for the fossil fuels industry. On the other hand, the statistics for the solar industry were impressive, demonstrating it creates more electricity-generation employment than oil, gas, coal and nuclear combined.

The analysis was conducted by BW Research using data compiled from the "Bureau of Labor Statistics Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW, Quarter 1), together with a detailed supplemental survey of business establishments across the United States." BW Research Partnership is a "full-service applied research firm" that carries out economic and workforce data-gathering throughout the country."
