In 2015 the Indiana governor  told  Obama in no uncertain terms that his state would not be complying with the Clean Power Plan, which sets targets for reducing power plant emissions in each state. Pence joined a lawsuit that has succeeded in tying up the plan in court. He and other climate crisis-denying policymakers have benefited from a well-coordinated network of industry front groups, ...

Mexican supplier to Ford and BMW looks to Europe 27.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Nemak, Mexico’s largest publicly traded auto-parts maker, has been supplying U.S. automakers for years. Now it’s looking for more growth in Europe. The company’s aluminum engine components are gaining business on the continent as automakers increase their reliance on the lightweight metal in an effort to cut vehicle weight and increase fuel efficiency. That helped the Alfa SAB unit boost revenue in Europe 15 percent in the second quarter, partially offsetting declines in North America and the re... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
Tesla slams the accelerator on Gigafactory 27.7.2016 SFGate: Business & Technology
SPARKS, NEVADA — Elon Musk’s ambitious plans to power cars, homes, trucks and buses with renewable energy all hinge on an immense battery factory taking shape in the Nevada desert. [...] as his electric car company, Tesla Motors, ratchets up its ambitions — recently unveiling plans to tackle trucks, buses and solar power — construction of a facility to realize them has sped up to match. When done, it will be a factory like no other, processing lithium ore into finished battery packs ready to run cars, businesses or homes. Tesla’s goal of building 1 million vehicles per year by the end of 2020 also depends on a fast-rising flow of batteries from the Gigafactory, which started assembling battery packs last October using premade cells supplied by Panasonic. The plant’s batteries even form the linchpin of Tesla’s proposed merger with SolarCity, potentially transforming Tesla from an upstart automaker into an integrated energy company powering vehicles, houses and businesses with stored solar electricity. ...

Tesla Gigafactory to expand battery sales 27.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune

Solar plane's arrival highlights UAE's clean-energy push 26.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates • The United Arab Emirates might not seem like an obvious spot to begin and end a globe-spanning flight promoting renewable energy. It is OPEC’s fourth biggest oil producer, after all, where gas guzzlers rule the road and the air conditioning is always on — not just at its indoor ski slope. Its oil output and fossil fuel-burning airlines are growing, and its per-capita carbon emissions rank among the world’s highest. Yet this federation of sheikhdoms on the Persia...

How Utah Coal Interests Helped Push a Secret Plan to Export Coal From California 24.7.2016 Truthout - All Articles
This story was originally published on July 21, 2016 at High Country News ( hcn.org ). On June 27, hundreds of people packed the Oakland City Council meeting where a proposal to ban the transport of coal through the California city was up for a vote. Speakers on both sides of the issue delivered passionate arguments, pitting the promise of good jobs in a depressed area against concern about environmental impacts. The meeting quickly became rowdy. "There was a lot of tension," says Rev. Ken Chambers, pastor of West Side Missionary Baptist Church in West Oakland, who spoke in support of the ban. Pro-coal supporters stationed in the audience heckled him throughout his address, and at times, Lynette Gibson McElhaney, the council president, struggled to maintain order. "Officers," she requested, "please escort those persons who continue to have disrespectful outbursts outside of the chamber." The vote came after more than a year of heated debate over plans to build a marine terminal, from which coal mined in ...

We Must Reject Economic Cannibalism 24.7.2016 Truthout.com
Neoliberal ideology has created a cannibalistic economy that is consuming us into extinction. We can change that by joining and supporting social movements that are pressuring governments and corporations to create a more regenerative economy.

"What can I do to fix a broken global economy?" It's a question I've been asked a lot these past few months as I've crisscrossed the US speaking at TED venues, music concerts, the World Affairs Council, bookstores, on radio and TV shows, and at a variety of other forums. During this election year it is important to recognize that corporations pretty much run the world. Despite the outcome of the elections, they will continue to do so -- at least until we organize and change the rules that have created the dominant neoliberal system. We all support corporations. We buy from them, work for them, manage ...
