Washington Post Editorial: Jill Stein's fairy-tale candidacy 28.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein argues that Americans should not vote for the lesser of two evils. Instead of voting out of fear, they should vote for the most deserving candidate. Unfortunately for Stein, even if you accepted the logic, it would not lead this year to a vote for her. Stein sat down with our editorial board Thursday, as Republican Donald Trump and Libertarian Gary Johnson have done previously. She stressed some important issues, especially climate change. As an activi...

California bill bans coal-export funding 27.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Sacramento • California Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Friday banning state transportation funding for new coal export terminals. The bill represents a victory for environmentalists as they campaign aggressively to block shipments of coal from the West Coast to energy-hungry markets in Asia. The legislation was introduced in response to a developer’s failed proposal to build a coal terminal in Oakland. The project would have involved funding from the state of Utah, which hoped to create job... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Corporations turn to their own green energy sources 27.8.2016 SFGate: Business & Technology
The words are stenciled on the front of the Apple Store, a glass box sandwiched between a nondescript Thai restaurant and a CVS pharmacy in downtown Palo Alto: “This store runs on 100 percent renewable energy.” If Apple’s plans play out, it will be able to make that claim not only for its operations throughout California but also beyond, as the company aims to meet its growing needs for electricity with green sources like solar, wind and hydroelectric power. Like other big companies before it, including Walmart and Google, Apple recently received a federal designation for its energy subsidiary that allows it to become a wholesale seller of electricity from coast to coast. [...] like a growing number of corporations, Apple is intent on reducing carbon dioxide emissions from electricity production — one of the biggest sources of greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. In one ambitious venture, Apple has contracted with First Solar to begin buying a little less than half of the power later ...

Peabody backs out of reservoir project 26.8.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Peabody Energy has backed away from plans to build the 400-acre Trout Creek Reservoir about 15 miles southwest of Steamboat Springs. Information that Peabody was working on the reservoir project first surfaced in 2012, when a memo was sent to the Upper Yampa Water Conservancy. Because the plan included a proposed hydroelectric dam that would generate 125 kilowatts of electricity, Peabody was seeking approvals from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC. On Tuesday, FERC released a letter stating they were terminating the licensing process because Peabody had missed deadlines. In 2015, because of dwindling demand for coal, Peabody asked for a two-year extension in the permitting process so the company could conserve cash and reduce debt. In April, Peabody declared bankruptcy. Some environmentalist declared a victory when FERC terminated the licensing process. "This is good news for Trout Creek, the Yampa River and the entire Colorado River basin,” Save The Colorado's Gary Wockner said in a news ...
