China’s Flag Is Red, Not Green

"Despite these massive hydroengineering efforts, China can’t feed its own people or supply enough water for its industrial economy. More than 75% of China’s surface water supply is contaminated and undrinkable. Under current United Nations standards, the amount of water available in Beijing places the megalopolis in a state of 'extreme water scarcity.' Much of China’s farmland is too polluted by heavy minerals and salinization to grow edible crops. China is now the world’s largest importer of feed grains, accounting for 60% of global imports of soybeans. It also imports 70% of its cooking oils."

Protests and Prices Push Europe Into Remaking Its Green Deal

"Investors need 'a business case and not prescriptive regulations,' said Martin Brudermueller, chief executive officer of Germany’s BASF SE and president of the European chemical industry association Cefic. 'Regulations in Europe are complicated, lengthy and they are not providing the incentives that would encourage you to invest.'"

Climate change is warming public opinion to nuclear power

"So, today, some leaders of the anti-nuclear community are headed to the exits, while a new generation of pro-nuclear climate activists enters to take their place — although, admittedly, the shift is not universal. It is a change mirrored in Congress and among the public. In the face of the existential risk of climate change, there has been a significant reconsideration of nuclear energy and, I believe, it will lead to the widespread deployment of a new generation of advanced nuclear units. What a difference."

Amid all the climate gloom, let’s not ignore the good news

"Clean energy is also benefiting from a flurry of technological innovation. After concerns that supply bottlenecks for critical minerals such as lithium could hamper the production of EV batteries, the industry responded by quickly bringing to market new battery chemistries that will reduce their dependence on key minerals. And innovation is moving fast in other emerging low-emissions technologies such as electrolysers for producing hydrogen and new processes for making green steel."

U.S., UK, Canada Ink Trilateral Memo to Cooperate on Advanced Reactor Licensing

"The MOC will supersede earlier bilateral agreements between the entities. These include separate memoranda of understanding (MOU) for cooperation and exchange of information 'in nuclear regulatory matters' between the NRC and the CNSC, signed in March 2023; an MOU between the NRC and the ONR, signed in October 2020, and an MOU between the CNSC and the ONR, signed in October 2020."

How African companies are solving the continent’s solar finance problem

How African companies are solving the continent’s solar finance problem

"For African countries, the biggest obstacle to building out the solar industry is that the financing tricks used in China, Europe, and the U.S. to clear the way for widespread solar adoption — government subsidies and utility payments to solar-equipped customers — can’t work in places where states, utilities, and households are all chronically strapped for cash. At the same time, supply chain problems and the widespread perception by financial institutions that investments in Africa are high-risk mean that the cost of solar is far higher than in other places — the same solar system costs twice as much in Ghana as in the U.S. Bringing down the cost of capital requires a stronger track record of profitable investments than what the industry has been able to show so far. That means new business models are needed to make solar affordable for a broader base of customers."

Sorry, Tucker, Russia is Filthy

If Carlson succeeds in anesthetizing the United States into accepting the authoritarianism he reveres in Putin’s Russia, he won’t have to travel far to see how smothering freedom can damage our natural and economic environment.
