In crafting energy policy, remember the 'Minnesota Way' 27.4.2015 MinnPost
CC/Flickr/Michael from Minnesota The Next Generation Energy Initiative — proposed in 2007 by Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty and passed on an overwhelmingly bipartisan basis — spurred development of clean, renewable sources such as wind and solar at very competitive costs. With the Legislature under split-party control, conversations about several big issues are likely to get contentious before the 2015 session comes to a close, but things don’t have to work that way. In the case of energy policy, Minnesota has become a national and global leader, not because of knockdown, drag-out fights, but because of our history of policymakers from both parties coming together with diverse stakeholders to work diligently together on energy issues, often negotiating to the highest common denominator, rather than the lowest. Mike Bull Amid often heated debate at the Capitol, it’s easy to forget that Republicans and Democrats collaborated on initiatives like the Metropolitan Emissions Reduction Project (enacted in 2001 ...

The fossil fuel industry is condemning us to climate disaster 24.4.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
We must restructure the world energy usage and embark on a renewable revolution. Take a stand to stop business as usual and keep fossil fuels in the ground The warnings from our most respected scientists are loud and clear and their findings are irrefutable. Science demands that average global temperature rises must stay below 2C if we are to avoid catastrophic climate change. The world cannot wait until 2050, 2040 or even 2030 to act. The World Bank’s sobering report, Turn Down the Heat , told us in 2013 that without serious policy changes the world will warm by an average of 4C by the end of the century. Professor Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, Angela Merkel’s adviser, concludes, “the difference between [2C and 4C] is human civilisation”, and Professor James Hansen warns that even a 2C rise will cause “major dislocations for civilisation”. Every year through subsides UK citizens give £2.5bn in taxes to the oil, gas and coal ...
