Windmill man optimistic about the future

July 16 -- Green energy has been at the center of bitter political fights in recent years, but Tom Kiernan sees a glass half full — at the very least — when it comes to the future of the wind power industry in the United States. >>View Article

US can't afford to cede green energy industry to its competitors

July 16 -- The clean energy industry is as American as fireworks on the Fourth of July. It invented the solar cell. It designed and perfected the electric wind turbine. The sector has largely defied the economic recession, with worldwide investments soaring 600 percent between 2004 and 2011. The result? Texas now has more solar workers than ranchers. California now has more solar workers than actors. And the United States now has more solar workers than coal miners or steel workers. But we’re losing our edge. >>View Article

Guest Post: House Cuts Clean Energy Funding, Dragging Down An Entire Community Of American Innovators

July 16 -- In my last post, I discussed a House subcommittee’s shortsighted vote to slash funding for the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) innovative Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E). I’m sorry to report that the rest of the House has now followed suit, passing a $30 billion energy spending bill that cuts a huge chunk out of clean energy programs. >>View Article

N.M. can contribute to fuel needs and boost its agricultural economy

July 15 -- The summer of 2013 has the potential to be the worst drought that New Mexico has ever seen. The Canadian River Watershed in northeastern New Mexico, which provides irrigation water to Arch Hurley Conservancy District farmers, has seen no irrigation water in six out of the last 12 years. Ranchers across the state reduced their herds to 25 percent of their previous size, and sold thousands of acres of land and livestock to just barely pay the bills. >>View Article

US Moves At Least 100,000 Plug In Vehicles In Last 2 Years

July 15 -- 100,000 plug-in electric vehicles sold in over the last two years. That’s what advocacy group Plug In America recently celebrated with an Alabama man who purchased said vehicle a short ago. It was an ironic choice though, representing one of the lesser well selling of this classification of vehicle here in the United States. >>View Article

Help solar, but wind is also promising

July 15 -- Solar power makes up an infinitesimal part of the nation’s energy supply. That’s even after factoring in special tax credits and rebates used to promote use of the sun’s rays in Kansas City and across the nation. >>View Article

North Carolinians want more renewable fuel

July 15 -- At the height of the summer driving season, it is unfortunate how dependent drivers in North Carolina and the rest of the country remain on high-priced gasoline. Drivers in the Tar Heel state can expect to pay as much as $3.79 a gallon to fill up their cars. The effect of those high gas prices on families is eye-opening. In fact, when it costs more to fulfill basic transportation needs, new polling shows that North Carolinians are less likely to spend money on dining out, clothes and even gifts. We deserve our independence with more renewable fuel options at the pump. >>View Article
