Policy changes under new U.S. administration won't stop the green transition 19.1.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
This piece is co-authored by Thomas Kveiborg, Executive Director for Ramboll Environment & Health. Prices for solar and wind power are falling sharply, and speeding the transition to green energy. At the same time, investors are increasingly turning away from fossil fuels. Anticipated changes in US energy policy under the U.S. administration taking over January 20 won't stop this trend. The U.S. presidential election has raised concerns about the implications of possible changes in U.S. energy and carbon management policy, and associated effects on environmental policy around the world. But it appears that such changes in U.S. policy under the new administration taking over on January 20 won't have as much of an effect on the "green transition" from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources as many believe. Instead, the green transition will continue to be motivated by global market forces rather than changes in policy in the US or other jurisdictions. This was also the conclusion at the UN's climate ...

How Far Can Technology Go To Stave Off Climate Change? 18.1.2017 Environmental News Network
The U.S. now has two coal-burning power plants that avoid dumping carbon dioxide into the air. Petra Nova in Texas and Kemper in Mississippi use technology to stop CO2 in the smokestack and before combustion, respectively. Unfortunately, that makes two out of more than 400 coal-fired power plants in the U.S., the rest of which collectively pour 1.4 billion metric tons of the colorless, odorless greenhouse gas into the atmosphere each year. Even Kemper and Petra Nova do not capture all of the CO2 from the coal they burn, and the captured CO2 is used to scour more oil out of the ground, which is then burned, adding yet more CO2 to the atmosphere. The carbon conundrum grows more complex — and dangerous — with each passing year.
