‘Worldwide water shortage by ’40’ 31.7.2014 Asian Age: International
In most countries, electricity is the biggest source of water consumption There will be a global water supply shortage by 2040 if citizens do not improve the way energy and power is used, warns a new research that included a case study from India. Three years of research show that by the year 2040 there will not be enough water in the world to quench the thirst of the world population and keep the current energy and power solutions going if we continue doing what we are doing today, researchers said. It is a clash of competing necessities, between drinking water and energy demand, according to researchers from Aarhus University in Denmark, Vermont Law School and CNA Corporation in the US. In most countries, electricity is the biggest source of water consumption because the power plants need cooling cycles in order to function. The only energy systems that do not require cooling cycles are wind and solar systems, and therefore one of the primary recommendations issued by the researchers is to replace old ...

So the fracking battle begins, but is it clear whos right? 29.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
It could reduce our emissions and is less intrusive than wind, yet the nimbys and green groups stand united Here is a troubling truth for environmental groups. The biggest grassroots green campaign in Britain in the past decade has been one they have almost universally opposed: the groundswell of local opposition to onshore wind farms. The likes of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth may have been right to support wind power as an increasingly cost-effective form of renewable energy. But its large visual imprint is a blot on many landscapes and horrifies countryside lovers. The green groups mostly responded to that nimbyism by holding their noses and muttering against opponents of the monstrous turbines, branding them climate sceptics and worse. That response has been a big cause of the declining influence of environmentalists in Britain. Without nimbys, they dont amount to much. It may also have inadvertently undermined the bigger cause fighting climate change. Green campaigner and television wildlife ...
