    Texas could follow Scotland…

    Scotland produces record amount of energy from renewables as green schemes generate two-thirds of electricity

    Scotland has become a world leader in sourcing its electricity from renewables, after a record year in 2017 for creating eco-friendly energy, figures show.

    The nation got more than two-thirds – 68.1 per cent – of its electricity from green schemes last year – an increase of 26 per cent on the year before.

    The figure was a rise of 14.1 percentage points from the 54 per cent reached in 2016.

    Despite the efforts of Trump and co. progress is being made in the U.S of A. I hope to see it continue and maybe accelerate a tad.

    “The carbon intensity of the US Power Sector has officially dropped to the lowest on record.”

    “The latest data revealed the following findings: US power plant emissions averaged 967 lb. CO2 per megawatt hour (MWh) in 2017, which was down 3.1 percent from the prior year and down 26.8 percent from the annual value of 1,321 lb CO2 per MWh in 2005 The result of 2016 was initially reported as 1,001 lb/MWhr, but was later revised downward to 998 lb/MWhr.

    “The power industry has made significant progress in reducing emissions for over a decade, as new technology, state and federal policies, and market forces have increased power generation from natural gas and renewables, and decreased power generation from coal. As this Change in Power continues, the Carnegie Mellon Power Sector Carbon Index will not only report the results but also provide analysis of the underlying reasons for the changes we’re seeing,”

      More than 60 countries’ grids are mostly powered by clean safe renewable energy. 22 of them are at or near 100%; 34 are over 75%. But the 3 countries in the world most ruled by denying delayalists–the US, Russia and Australia–seem to be stuck under 20% renewable grids and only very slowly creeping up, despite their fantastic wealth. The US most of all, with its abundance of both diverse renewable resources and money to take advantage of it, fast. Australia’s not poor, either, with almost unlimited solar and wind, including distributed generation and piles of places for dispatchable CSP and offshore wind with capacity factor of 65% and rising. While Australia has been ruled by Prime Minister Coal, that rule is ending state by state. But the US and Russia are essentially national oil, gas and coal corporations; only overthrowing those regimes through a popular peaceful uprising will get us back on track and allow civilization to survive.

    3:52 in the first video: “I don’t think…” Enough said. The technical college needs to include a basic science section, explaining why nobody gives a flying foehn what this hink thicks.
