Vast swathes of land are being cleared to make way for solar power plants. Renewable energies are the future, but to what extent should fields and woods be sacrificed to make way for solar power plants? It's an environmental dilemma.
Iceland runs on 85% renewable energy. How did they get there? “My favorite part of Iceland's renewable energy story is that it started small. It started with innovation, entrepreneurship. In terms of how has this developed, originally organically and then supported by the government and by policies and funding, which is essential for any development.” Halla Hrund Logadottir on Electric Ladies Podcast I was privileged to tour some of the unique technologies and business models that fuel Iceland's remarkable 85% renewable energy economy recently. It seems that Iceland could be a pilot project for the rest of us on how to do it. How did they do it? Listen to this fascinating interview with Halla Hrund Logadottir, the Director-General of Iceland's National Energy Authority (INEA) with host Joan Michelson on Electric Ladies Podcast conducted in Reykjavik to hear strategies we can all implement today. You'll hear: How Iceland leverages its topology and natural resources to run the country on renewable energy - and how they plan to get to 100% renewable energy soon. The unique database of best practices, solutions and partnerships Iceland developed and continues to build upon. Lessons we can all learn from their evolution for our own countries. Why women play an important role in driving the innovations in Iceland's renewable energy economy. Plus, great career advice.... "Don't let fear get in your way. And if you don't feel like you have the courage, borrow it from a friend or from an expert, go out there and, borrow it. So you can actually make sure that fear is not standing between you and the opportunity that the world has for you to make a difference."

While Ag's detractors often paint Agriculture as an environmental villain, I promote Agriculture as an environmental solution. Renewable energy, carbon sequestration, water filtration, and enviro benefit via land management are all enhanced through Agriculture. In the future we may also be a reservoir for carbon rich bio char and a supplier of alternative products — besides corn and soy — for renewable energy. Kore is a start-up company with technology they believe can work with Agriculture for energy and environmental benefit. Sponsored by Nori nori.com and Pattern Ag pattern.ag

The effort to reduce and ultimately eliminate the use of fossil fuels has largely been driven by the potentially catastrophic consequences of global climate change. The need to stop dumping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere has become increasingly urgent. But there is an equally compelling reason to stop burning fossil fuels. According to a study […]
Climate Change causes droughts, with lake levels at an all-time low. In the United States, water is called a "resource," no different than some other capitalistic commodity. In this episode, we look at the challenges water faces, and what the effects of climate change are doing to it. We also discuss the misunderstood term "sustainability." We ask a specific question: "Does the United States really care about water?"

Henrik Nordborg is a physics professor at the Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Sciences, and program director for the university’s Renewable Energy and Environmental Technology. He began giving public lectures about the climate crisis some years ago when he felt his students deserved more honest information about the state of the world and the looming crisis. This led to him developing the Global Climate Compensation, a plan to tax fossil fuel companies and redistribute those funds to every nation around the world.Henrik’s plan differs from other carbon tax proposals—he wants to tax fossil fuel companies at production, not from calculations of their emissions. He says this not only prevents companies’ capacity to skew the data, but actually involves no additional accounting—these companies know exactly how much they’re producing because that’s where their profits come from.The redistribution factor is equally key. This fund would be redistributed around the world, per capita, and governments could then choose what to do with that money. It could provide a buffer for developing nations to begin their own energy transition. This is crucial in a world where Western nations are avoiding paying climate reparations—Loss and Damages payments—which Global South nations have tried to bring to the table at Cop conferences.

An expert in international trade policy discusses the Biden Administration's use of the Defense Production Act, and tariff restrictions, to build a competitive US solar supply chain. --- In early June the Biden Administration invoked the Defense Production Act in an effort to rebuild America's domestic solar energy manufacturing supply. Simultaneously, the Administration announced that it will prohibit for two years new tariffs on imports of solar cells from four Southeast Asian countries that are under investigation for illegal trade practices involving their solar industries. Through these complementary policies, the Administration aims to accelerate solar power development in the US in the near term, and ultimately to displace solar imports and strengthen US energy security. The policies are controversial, and have implications for domestic industry and the pace of decarbonization, and the rule of law. Robert Scott, Senior Economist and Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Research at the Economic Policy Institute, offers a closer look at the Defense Production Act and its potential to spur the development of a robust solar supply chain in the US. Scott examines the policies and trade dynamics that led to China's dominance in the global solar supply chain, and how the DPA and related trade and industrial policies might create the foundation for a competitive domestic solar manufacturing industry. Robert Scott is Senior Economist and Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Research at the Economic Policy Institute.

Raised within the cannabis community on the hippie communal plant life path. Desiree's mother was an advocate and educator of plant medicines. Her father was a skilled craftsman in addition to cultivating both hemp and cannabis. Desiree was your typical hippie GenX stoner youth - traveler, followed "The Dead", trim-igrated around the Northwestern region until she finally pursued a business degree to engage in the average 9-5 grind in such industries as Commercial Development and Renewable Energy. And then Desiree was diagnosed (and beat) cervical cancer. For years, she lived a double life working a corporate, non-cannabis job and her off-hours paving my path into the 215 medical cannabis landscape. As a relentless cannabis advocate for others, she found herself advocating for her own life. Desiree's experience within the Renewable sector birthed the fondness she now has for legislative bodywork and the commencement of laws for Cannabis within the State of California. As a Cannabis Compliance and Operational Analyst Specialist, she bridges compliance, systems, and processes through her intuitive approach to culture, technology, and cannabis governess. From evaluating and condensing operational overhead to regulatory body compliance framework and policy-making, Desiree drives home compliant operational success in an often complicated cannabis business landscape.
