Letter: Everything on Earth is solar powered 23.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Solar energy, properly understood, is far and away the largest supporter of jobs on the planet. All agriculture/grazing/forestry is directly derived from sunlight. All above sea level water movement (as well as a lot below) comes from sunlight moving water into the atmosphere (yes, mountains as we know them, are created by the sun). All wind energy is dependent on sunlight. Amazingly, even oil, coal and natural gas are forms of solar energy. These extractive industries are the ugly side of what...

Holly Richardson: Utah pioneering did not stop in the 1800s 22.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
This weekend, we look forward to celebrating Pioneer Day, commemorating the entry of early Mormon settlers into the Salt Lake Valley. Next week, four of our children will be experiencing “trek” at Martin’s Cove in Wyoming. Pioneering has been on my mind. I have early pioneer heritage on my dad’s side. My great-great-grandfather was born on the plains of Nebraska. Other great-grandparents settled the area now known as Park City. A great-great-uncle was a member of the LDS Quorum of the Twelve ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Bloomberg View: States can keep the rooftop solar market growing 19.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Almost overnight, it seems, the decade-long expansion of rooftop solar in the U.S. has come to an end. Installations are set to fall by 2 percent this year, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Partly to blame is a widening campaign to end a key customer incentive, homeowners’ ability to sell their extra energy back to the grid at retail prices. Power companies pressing for this change argue that the practice shifts costs from the affluent owners of solar-powered homes to poorer ratepayers... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Advocates Plan Solar Installations Along Keystone XL Route 18.7.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Environmental groups have launched a campaign to install solar panels along the Keystone XL route, literally and symbolically blocking the pipeline with a renewable energy future. (Photo: Shannon Ramos / Flickr ) When President Donald Trump signed off on a presidential permit okaying the Keystone XL crude oil pipeline in March, it was a real blow to an environmental movement that had tasted victory over the dirty tar sands clunker back in 2015 when President Obama withdrew the permit for the project. With Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau united in their support of the pipeline, it seemed little could stand in the way of some 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands fuel barreling down a 36-inch crude oil pipe from Hardisty, Alberta through Montana, South Dakota, and Nebraska to export terminals in the Gulf of Mexico. The pipeline seemed destined to pass over, under, and through environmentally sensitive areas such as Nebraska's Sandhills, and putt at risk the Ogallala Aquifer, one of the ...

A Fairy Tale From 2050: Donald Trump and the Triumph of Anti-Politics 18.7.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Once upon a time, long, long ago, I testified before the great assembly of our land. When I describe this event to children today, it really does sound to them like a fairy tale. Once upon a time -- a time before the world splintered into a million pieces and America became its current disunited states -- this old woman was a young idealist who tried to persuade our mighty Congress that a monster was stalking the land. "Did they listen to you, Auntie Rachel?" they typically ask me. "Oh, they listened to me, but they didn't hear me." "So, what did you do?" "I thought and I thought, and I wrote and I wrote, and I put together an even better presentation," I say patiently. "I had to somehow make that monster visible so those mighty people could see it." "What did it look like, Auntie Rachel?" "It was invisible, my dear children, but we could feel its hot breath. And we could see the terrible things that it did. It could make the oceans rise. It could make the crops wilt in the fields. Still, we kept feeding ...
