    Green, ethical, energy issues in the news. 9th Jun 15 at 7:25 AM
    I thought it might be a good idea to have a thread for posting general news items that may be of interest.

    PV and the 'Solar in the news' thread attract a lot of interest, so here's a thread for all the other goings on.

    Trump is trying hard but it looks like RE is now unstoppable in the US. To reverse the progress now would take the work of a madman hell bent on national and global destruction ........ oh damn!

    EIA Data Undermines Trumpís Love Affair With Coal & Nuclear

    Specifically, the United Statesí renewable energy sources ó consisting of biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, and wind ó now provide more electricity than nuclear power in over half the states across the country, and more electricity than coal in a third of the states. Further, according to data compiled from the reports by Ken Bossong of the Sun Day Campaign, over the next three years of capacity additions and retirements, the US coal industry will experience a net-loss of 16 gigawatts (GW) and the nuclear industry will only see a net-increase of 0.8 GW.

    Conversely, utility-scale renewable energy capacity is expected to skyrocket by 157 GW over the same time period, led primarily by wind energy with nearly 91 gigawatts (GW) and solar with just over 52 GW.
    [Note - I changed the references from MW to GW as they were a bit 'silly'. M.]
