APJ Abdul Kalam obituary 30.7.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest
Former leader of India who became known as the ‘people’s president’ The president of India is constitutional head of state, an office in many ways similar to the British crown. Like British monarchs, Indian presidents are housed in a vast palace and usually surrounded by stifling ceremonial. APJ Abdul Kalam was an extraordinary president of India, in office from 2002 until 2007. He became known as the “people’s president” because he welcomed the public into the palace in New Delhi (built for the last of the viceroys by the British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens) and made himself accessible whenever he travelled. Kalam, who has died aged 83, was unusual, too, in that he never held any political ambitions. He was also an extraordinary scientist, known as the “missile man”, who played a crucial role in India’s most successful programmes. In the words of one of his former colleagues: “The success of our space programme, our missile development and our nuclear weaponry all owe their genesis to him.” Yet he had ...

Is Hillary Clinton's ambitious solar energy goal for the US workable? | Karl Mathiesen 28.7.2015 Guardian: Environment
Clinton’s first climate change policy pitch – for renewables to provide 33% of the nation’s electricity by 2027 – is bold, but the US must look beyond solar for a clean energy revolution On Sunday, Hillary Clinton took a first swing at the many-headed carbon hydra. By the end of her first term, she said , the US would have seven times more solar energy capacity than it does today. And by 2027, renewable energy would supply a third of the nation’s electricity. Clinton’s announcement, which the campaign said would be the first of many on climate change from the presidential hopeful, extends the carbon-saving ambition in a significant sector of the economy. Burning fossil fuels for electricity accounts for 31% of US greenhouse gas emissions . One estimate found Clinton’s 33% renewable target could slice another 4% off the US’s existing pledge to cut emissions by 26-28% by 2025 ...
