It has been said by experts in the climate change field that the more time that passes, the more difficult it will be to make the necessary changes to help our planet. Are we late in our response to climate change? Bill McKibben, American environmentalist, discusses the relationship between climate change and the US political system.

A recent poll showed that of the top 18 issues that Americans care most about, 10 would be fixed with Public Banks and monetary reform.  Unfortunately climate change and ocean acidification were not even on the list.

Solar panels currently cannot communicate, cannot adjust to environmental circumstances, and do not have automatic shutdown capabilities. However, solar panels continue to get more efficient.  Most of the newer solar panels are equipped with optimizers, either built in or separately attached.  Microinverters provide the same basic benefits at similar costs; however, optimizers operate on the DC side are always connected to a central or string inverter.

A recent study determined that humans are causing irreversible damage to the planet from burning fossil fuels.  Unfortunately not everyone is thoroughly convinced that there is a high risk of widespread harm from rising global temperatures.  This risk could explain recent floods, droughts, and extinction of species and ocean acidification.

The proposed route of TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline crosses directly through Great Sioux Nation (Oceti Sakowin) Treaty lands as defined by both the 1851 and 1868 Fort Laramie Treaties and within the current exterior boundaries of the Rosebud Sioux Reservation and Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation.

Quarter two of 2014 proved to be a success time for the solar market. Q2 2014 saw installation of PV systems increase 21% from the same quarter last year. As usually, utility sectors accounted for a majority of the quarter’s growth, with residential implementation of solar energy continuing to increase incrementally. The cost-effectiveness of solar energy is continually improving, which works to explain the increase in PV system installation in industrial and retail sectors.
