Comments Off on Bridge to Hawaii’s future — lessons from the next generation

Hawaii is pursuing a clean energy future that is fast approaching. Those who will carry the renewable electricity torch are just steps away from assuming the responsibility of leading in this industry. The reach of renewables development in Hawaii is broad — from policy to technology and social equity to fragile island ecologies — and tomorrow’s leaders will have a lot to address. So, what is being done to equip future generations with the tools necessary to seamlessly fold into the face-paced, technology-centric clean energy transformation?

Comments Off on VERGE Talk: Why clean, equitable energy and EVs are good business

While many stakeholders in the clean energy economy claim poverty, there’s good news: Equitable financing models exist for decarbonizing our local energy and transportation systems! Holmes Hummel is back to build on her VERGE Talk last year on how to scale clean energy investments with equity as a driver — showing how financing the clean energy infrastructure transition is not just a social imperative, but also a business opportunity.

Comments Off on VERGE Talk: Connecting the dots to transcend oil

In 2008, Hawaii signed into law the most aggressive clean energy goals of any state in the Union. It set the islands on a path to clean energy. Ten years later, the four counties matched the State’s clean energy goal with a commitment to 100% renewable ground transportation and new data tells the story of how Hawaii can move faster than anyone originally thought, more than doubling its renewable energy potential to up to 84% by 2030.

Comments Off on Brooklyn SolarWorks can turn almost any rooftop into a sun-powered oasis

Brooklyn SolarWorks wants to help bring solar power  to  New Yorkers . Stunning new renderings of the company’s Solar Canopy envision how city dwellers might benefit from this innovative product. The Solar Canopy offers solar in spots where traditional  solar panels can’t go because of fire codes or obstacles. Beyond just generating clean energy , the canopy could create new living spaces and redefine urban solar. Brooklyn SolarWorks’ Solar Canopy, designed with SITU Studio , has been around for a while, popping up around New York City in Park Slope, Crown Heights and Bed-Stuy to name a few. The new renderings paint a picture of what urban solar power could look like; for example, a relaxing rooftop dining area. Related: Durable canvas cloth with embedded solar cells generates 120 watts per square meter The Brooklyn SolarWorks website  says the company is “capable of putting solar panels on almost anything. Whether you have ample roof space free of obstacles or your roof is littered with vent pipes, skylights, and hatches, we will likely be able to figure out a solar solution.” The Solar Canopy is one of those solutions. By raising solar panels nine feet above rooftops, the company can work around restrictive fire codes. Brooklyn SolarWorks uses different panels depending on the job at hand; two of the most popular are Silfab’s SLA-M 310 Wp Monocrystalline panels  that offer “100 percent maximum power density” and  LG NeON 2 355W panels , which use thinner wires for a more aesthetically-pleasing appearance. You don’t have to leave your couch to check out the Solar Canopy; Brooklyn SolarWorks offers an immersive 3D model  that you can explore with virtual reality goggles. Find out more about the company and its innovative products on the Brooklyn SolarWorks website . + Brooklyn SolarWorks Images courtesy of Brooklyn SolarWorks

Unreleased internal FDA emails show glyphosate weedkiller residue in almost every food tested

Comments Off on Unreleased internal FDA emails show glyphosate weedkiller residue in almost every food tested

For the past two years, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been testing food samples for the weedkiller glyphosate , but the agency hasn’t released any results of their findings. This week, The Guardian , using a freedom of information request, found that the FDA has had “trouble finding any food that does not carry traces of the pesticide.” Not only that, but the levels tested are higher than the legal limit allowed in foods. Glyphosate is best known as the weedkiller in Monsanto’s Roundup products and it is sprayed directly onto crops and soil to suppress weeds. It is used on everything from corn, soybean, wheat, oats, to spinach and almonds.  Internal FDA documents show that scientists have found traces of glyphosate in a wide variety of foods. “I have brought wheat crackers, granola cereal and corn meal from home and there’s a fair amount in all of them,” FDA chemist Richard Thompson wrote in an email in January 2017. In fact, the only food Thompson readily found that was glyphosate-free was broccoli. Related: California adds Monsanto’s glyphosate to list of chemicals known to cause cancer These tests are the first time the FDA has attempted to figure out how much of the weedkiller is showing up in our food. Many groups have criticized the FDA for taking so long to do so because glyphosate is a commonly-used chemical that has been utilized in food production for four decades. It was declared a possible carcinogen in 2015. In another email, FDA chemist Narong Chamkasem found glyphosate levels of 6.5 parts per million, well above the legal limit of 5.0 ppm. Normally this would be reported to the EPA , but a supervisor at the FDA claims that the food used in the testing was not an “official sample.” We should be able to expect an official report by 2019. That report should also include information on other herbicides used in food production. Via The Guardian Images via Global Justice Now and Deposit Photos
