The Clean Power and Electrification Pathway

The Clean Power and Electrification Pathway

Edison International Climate change and air pollution pose serious threats. Climate change effects, such as sea level rise and longer, more intense heat waves, are now occurring. In California, while significant progress has been made, too many communities continue to experience asthma and other air quality-related health issues. Our utility, Southern California Edison, has developed an integrated framework that we’re calling the Clean Power and Electrification Pathway to fight climate change and improve air quality. It builds upon existing state policies to achieve California’s environmental goals, including reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40 percent from 1990 levels by 2030 …

Where Does Energy On Our Planet Come From?

By: Tom Tamarkin Founder Fusion4Freedom & President EnergyCite There are three primary sources of material amounts of energy on Earth. The word material means an amount of energy greater than 2 % of total worldwide energy demand combining all sectors of transportation, industrial, commercial residential, agricultural, potable water production and its movement. Energy sources such as thermal piles, batteries and the like are not considered material. These are: Energy from the Sun. The most prevalent form of useful energy today comes from the Sun in the form of hydrocarbon based fossil fuels like petroleum, coal, and natural gas. The energy …

The decline of Weather Dependent Renewables in Europe: 2008 – 2018

cedmhdotme.wordpress.com Introduction The EurObserv’ER organisation publishes data annually on all types of EU28 Renewable installations and their productivity.  EurObser’ER is backed by the EU and promotes the transition to Renewables.  Their report for Solar power in 2019 here is a typical example of their annual data output for each technology. Photovoltaic barometer 2019 This post uses the EurObserv’ER data series since 2008 as they relate to about 80% of European Renewable generation installations, those being: Wind power Onshore Wind Power Offshore On grid Solar PV power. From the peak installation rate in 2010 the European commitment to Weather Dependent Renewables …

Inherent unreliable renewables dictate GND “100% renewable electricity” mandate yields unavoidable GHG emissions

by Larry Hamlin | May 31, 2019 The Green New Deal (GND) and California’s SB 100 are both draconian and completely unrealistic pipe dreams that politically mandate “100% renewable electricity” for the U.S. and California respectively. A new 117 page study from the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) has determined that these politically contrived schemes of “100% renewable energy” are self defeating because of the inherent unreliability of renewables which results in significant GHG emissions occurring from the unavoidable need for backup dispatchable and reliable fossil generation. This backup fossil generation is required to provide grid stability functions including frequency, voltage …

Environmentalism: Evidence Suggests it Was Always and Only About Achieving World Government

Tim Ball | May 27, 2019 It is common sense to protect our environment, but what has occurred for 50 years is exploitation of that idea for a socialist agenda. We wasted 50 years believing that humans are not natural, and everything they do is destructive. We wasted and continue to waste trillions of dollars on unnecessary policies and useless technologies, all based on false assumptions, pseudoscience, and emotional bullying.

Want an Energy Revolution?

City Journal Mark P. Mills | May 3, 2019 It won’t come from renewables—which can never supply all the power we need—but from foundational scientific discoveries. Throughout history, some 60 percent to 90 percent of every nation’s economy has been consumed by food and fuel costs. Hydrocarbons changed the way that humans organize their productive capacity. The coal age, followed by the oil age, and now by the ascendant age of natural gas, has (at least for developed nations) driven the share of GDP devoted to acquiring food and fuel down to around 10 percent. That transformation constitutes one of …
