Weekly links: Prop 23, boats turned into buildings, and why all architecture is becoming green.

SHFT honchos Adrian Grenier and Peter Glatzer spoke to Huff Post about Prop 23. "It's about our future, period," said Peter. "Are oil companies defending their hold on our addiction? Of course they are. They'll do whatever they can to prevent clean tech from growing. That's what Prop 23 is all about." California, stand up! Vote NO on Prop 23. For whatever......read more

Ken Salazar says he will help accelerate the development of wind projects along the Atlantic coast, vowing to use a "smart permitting process" that will decrease project approval time from seven plus years to two. The Interior Secretary is working with governors in 11 different Atlantic states to determine the most suitable spots for offshore wind farms. He said permits could start......read more

Weekly links: Winter cycling, animals face-to-face, the real story behind Chinese wind energy dominance, and more.

Aww, is it "too cold" to ride your bike in the winter? No matter where you are, it ain't as cold as St. Petersburg, Russia, where Adams Carroll rides his Ukrainian beast — made from surplus military tank parts — through the snow. Check Carroll's notes on winter cycling at the Fader. On a one-way path to wind energy dominance, China is steady flouting world trade laws.......read more

Turbine-Free Wind Power

Are oscillating panels the future of wind energy?

Wind power may be clean, green, and renewable, but it doesn't come without its problems. It's noisy as hell for people living nearby, and it poses serious risks to flying wildlife and sensitive shoreline habitats. A group of mechanical engineers from Cornell have responded with a solution that may represent the future of wind energy tech. The working prototype, dubbed Vibro-Wind,......read more

Recycled sex doll hoodies, starlets on bikes, 100% renewable power, and more.

Who'd have thunk it: The entire world could be running on 100% renewable energy by 2030, says a new study published in the journal Energy Policy. All that's needed is 4 million 5-megawatt wind turbines, 1.7 billion 3-kilowatt rooftop solar power systems, and about 90,000 300-megawatt solar power plants — and a shitload of political will. No problem? (via MNN) Va-va-voom: Do you like......read more

State of the Union: Clean Energy

read
Obama lays out ambitious goal for America's energy future -- with an asterisk.

To the surprise of many (or us, at least), clean energy was a primary focus of President Obama's State of the Union Address on Tuesday. The President spent the first third of the speech on the issue, and laid out an ambitious goal by saying that 80 percent of electricity should come from clean energy sources by 2035. "[T]he nation that leads the clean energy economy will lead the global......read more

Secretary of Energy Steven Chu and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar paired up Monday to announce federal funding for offshore wind farms to the tune of $50.5 million over......read more

Green Development Hampered by Nimbyism

Eco projects face opposition in progressive hotspots from Brooklyn to Berkeley.

If we were asked to name the top two strongholds of eco-consciousness in America, we'd probably say Brooklyn on the east coast and Berkeley on the west. Hell, we even gave Brooklyn it's own web series. But not everyone in these liberal bastions is down for the greater environmental good. When it comes to green development, self interest runs rampant. In Park Slope, Brooklyn, a new bike lane......read more

At the Energy Crossroads

read
President Obama's original energy plan was thrown off the rails. Can his new strategy survive?

Nothing ever works out as planned. Just ask President Obama, who came into office equipped with an ambitious energy plan that addressed climate change and American dependence on foreign (read: Mideast) oil. Within two short years, a massive financial meltdown, an unprecedented offshore oil spill, and a GOP-controlled Congress has demolished that strategy, sending the administration back to the......read more

For the Birds: The American Bird Conservancy posted a video showing a vulture getting taken out by a wind turbine, part of a campaign calling for "bird smart" design of wind power projects. Hmmm. (via Dot Earth) Phew! In a 50-50 vote, the Senate rejected the GOP's attempt to permanently block the EPA from regulating greenhouse gases.
