But perhaps the biggest surprise was the significant loss of what biologists call foundational species, like coral reefs, sea grasses and kelp forests. They support the diversity of aquatic life by providing shelter from predators, moderating temperatures and acting as food sources. When they disappear, the entire ecosystem disappears along with them.

At a time when our President thinks making "America Great Again" is by reducing EPA standards, you have this happening. Looks like quality of life is not great, but that's just me.....

The transition continues on.....don't let others say it can't be done....because it is! Show them the evidence.

Utility-scale set the quarterly record for megawatt-hours deployed,

The fact that this record happened in the course of business as usual, rather than a special circumstance like Aliso Canyon, signals that the industry is diversifying and maturing
Residential:
Quote:
Yes, it delivered more megawatts than commercial or utility-scale in Q1 and Q2. And 2018 overall improved on 2017 by 350 percent in megawatt terms, with nearly 15,000 home storage systems installed.
Commercial:
Quote:
The commercial segment has alternated between hot and cold quarters. Q4, however, came in hot, with a record 30.5 megawatts and 78.2 megawatt-hours. That performance lifted the annual commercial market in megawatts to 53 percent growth over 2017.

YES, finally!! Although, it should have been the new Tesla Roadster 2 that is coming out soon....nothing can beat it.....

And no, there is nothing "Tree-hugger" about it....Bond is supposed to have one of the best cars and EVs beat ICEs now in performance.

In the first week of March, over a thousand new Model 3 vehicles were registered in Norway — three times more than any other car.
Quote:
In Germany, which is a market where Tesla had difficulties in the past, the automaker delivered almost 1,000 Model 3 cars last month — increasing its sales by over 500% in the market.
Quote:
The Netherlands has also been an important market for Tesla and with 472 Model 3’s delivered last month, it was enough for the vehicle to become the best-selling EV in the country – beating other newcomers like the Kona EV and Niro EV as well as longtime bestsellers, like the Nissan Leaf.

I was just watching an interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson and thought this quote could apply to this subject:

Quote:
Hard work dissipates ignorance.
That's why I created this thread and what I have been doing since about 2010 - almost a daily basis researching the topic of climate change, EVs, and how the energy industry would evolve. I then started this thread years ago to post the most important articles so that others could see what was happening and going to happen.

The information I have gained and shared allows us not to be ignorant to our changing world or manipulated by those in power who try and control the uneducated.

Discovered at work yesterday that my boss doesn’t believe there is anything we can do to affect climate change or really have an impact on it. So fucking disappointing. I really like the guy, but I had to duck out of that conversation pretty fast.

yeah, that does suck. I've been in the same boat for 5 years with my boss's boss (who I report to sometimes). I've had several talks with him, sent him an email with 20 different articles, and nothing.....he's uber conservative and won't change his mind....so I say hi every morning as I pass his office and have small talk every so often, but that's about it.

Excellent article visually showing how the SR Model 3 compares to the best selling cars of last year. The way the comparisons are made with screenshots of each car creates a long-lasting impact in your mind. Bye-bye old auto industry.

And this chart at the end sums it up:

Quote:
shows each luxury midsize car as a percentage of the Model 3 SR cost. We can see the Model 3 SR is very close to or below all top contenders.

Another brilliant article by Bill McKibben.

[Only registered users can see links.]

Quote:
Bond writes that in the 2020s—probably the early 2020s—the demand for fossil fuels will stop growing. The turning point in such transitions “is typically the moment when the impact is felt in financial markets”—when stock prices tumble and never recover. Who is going to invest in an industry that is clearly destined to shrink?
On the bold part - Exactly!


This is the study that Bill is referencing and it was created to warn investors:
