Saudi Arabia Announces Plans to Develop 54 GW Of Renewable Energy | Inhabitat.com | Climate is changing, so should you | Scoop.it

The kingdom of Saudi Arabia sits upon the world’s second-largest oil reserves, and as such, oil dominates the national economy. But in recent years, Saudi Arabia has begun taking advantage of the abundant sun and wind it enjoys by developing several major renewable energy projects. According to a new white paper published this week, Saudi Arabia will seek to develop 23.9 GW of renewable energy by 2020 and 54.1 GW by 2032, making it one of the biggest renewable energy producers in the world.


The goals outlined in the new Saudi white paper are some of the most ambitious renewable energy targets set by any nation. Of the 54 GW of renewable energy the kingdom will develop by 2032, 41 GW will be solar power, and the other 13 GW will be powered by wind energy, geothermal and waste-to-energy power.

FREE ENERGY

There's a public outcry for people who want a better planet
And there are powers that be that let the people panic
Look at the Gulf & Japan -Could they have really planned it?


Heading for the ice berg like the Titanic
Atlantic mystery, Atlantis wiped from history
The truth about the pyramids, and ancient Mayan Prophecy

 

Space odyssey, look into the anomalies
and you will find suppression of free energy technology
A false democracy born out of a monopoly sacred knowledge robbery like the towers they toppling
There's no stopping Free, J Brave, Guido C.

Coming from the Inner Me --

 

FREE ENERGY
The oil's running dry,
Our money's burning out

Solar panels on the roof of the white house --
HEEEYYYYY!
We bringing on some real change
Water catchment systems,
We collecting rain

 

CHORUS
Time
To gather round
The moments now
How will it all turn out?
And from the crowd
Be the one who's demanding change
it's time for free energy
Time to free energy

 

VERSE 2

Nikola Tesla perceived the earth as a conductor of acoustical resonance - And still his presence lives, in the heart of visionary invention - Over 5,000 patents censored

 

Researching zero point energy trying to get through delirium
The unified field theory of Nassim Haramein
Everyday we carrying the burden of our past
Water fueled cars we no longer need the gas

 

So many solutions
Right here in your face
Raw earth energy
Create what rejuvenates
Green walls, and green groups
Grow plants on everything
Magnetic movements
Don't need gas for anything
Spacely sprockets
Doing our own research paying out of pocket
Bike powered stages, you pedal and I rock it
Fully accessed the techy knowledge
Green power over big profits
You can't stop it!

 

PRE -- CHORUS
Ever think what the wars are fought for?
Ever dream that the world could be more?
My stand, my life, our earth, one chance
We can do it together

Ever think what the wars are fought for?
Ever dream that the world could be more?
My stand, my life, I vow, one day
We can do it together

 

VERSE 3
The renaissance 3rd industrial revolution
Invention is the language of a worldwide solution
The body electro, magnetic, plasma arc reactor
Stubblefield, Kowsky, Frost
Free the Knowledge Lost

 

Some people wait for 2012 to watch the earth shift
But in New Mexico they out there building earth ships
We got the language wrong, I got a new twist
The lifting of the veil, that's the true Apocalypse

 

Some see Free Energy as the enemy
But my genetic memory remembering that that could never be
Thoughts float in the anti-gravity
A cubic foot of space can fuel the whole world annually

 

You can choose to love or hate
Revolt or maybe meditate
And everyday we demonstrate
So we can finally get it straight
Peace worldwide is the anthem that we celebrate
Free energy just like the end movie Saint

 

CHORUS

Time
To gather round
The moments now
How will it all turn out?
And from the crowd
Be the one who's demanding change
it's time for free energy

How FREE Energy From The SUN will reshape China's Role In The World - Installs 5 GW In 2012

Most of China's solar panels are made for export markets.

 

Aggressive price competition helps consumers, stymies California industry

 

There’s a trade war brewing with China over solar panels and California is right in the middle.

 

China is the world’s biggest producer of solar panels, and yet very few are installed there domestically.

 

We’re in the headquarters of the world’s largest maker of solar panels, Suntech Power, in the city of Wuxi.

 

But now China’s central government has launched a major initiative to jumpstart its own use of solar energy.

 

This year alone, China will have installed about 5 gigawatts of capacity, producing enough electricity to supply two million Chinese.

Although China’s build-out barely puts a dent in its carbon footprint — the biggest in the world — Chinese solar companies and environmentalists are encouraged.

 

“It took China a while to bring its solar program up to speed,” says Andrew Beebe, a Suntech executive based in San Francisco.

China’s feed-in tariff is actually mimicking similar programs in Europe and the U.S. to promote wind and solar power.

 

When China became net importer coal, “That surprised everybody,” says Yang Fuqiang, an energy expert in NRDC’s Beijing office.

 

Yang says to offset this dependence on coal, both domestic and foreign, China wants to diversify its energy mix.

 

China’s Ambitious Plans for Renewables

 

So the central government has set an ambitious goal: to produce more than 11 percent of China’s energy from non-fossil fuels by the end of the decade.

RT @CIFOR_forests: Can forests + agriculture work together to tackle climate change & food insecurity?

With food prices soaring and land available to grow new crops scarce, experts will gather on the side-lines of the U.N. climate summit to debate one of the most pressing issues facing policymakers: Can the world’s forests and farms work together to tackle pressing food security challenges and climate change?

Agriculture has often been portrayed as the enemy of forests. Land clearing for crops and cattle ranching is already responsible for 80% of deforestation and 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions. The cost of staples such as wheat and maize may double by 2030, and as multinational conglomerates snap-up large tracts of land for cattle ranching and biofuel production, land available for food crops is increasingly in short supply.

An extraordinary off grid home built with local materials, that fits right into the rural Ontario landscape, the House on Limekiln Line is an extraordinary artifact, addressing a 220 year old heritage, with a modern aesthetic.

 

From the architects:

The House on Limekiln Line, a design-build off-grid house, is sited in a rich agricultural landscape.The house is understood as both a mediator to and a microcosm of its immediate cultural and climatic context. An “observation shed”, the house is composed of a series of scales of spaces, each with distinct vantage points, visual alignments, and framed vistas to the larger context beyond, facilitating stewardship of and respect for the productive landscape in which it sits...

Pharmaceuticals Are Disrupting Streams - Science News - redOrbit | Climate is changing, so should you | Scoop.it
Researchers wrote in the journal Ecological Applications that pharmaceuticals commonly found in the environment are disrupting streams.

“Pharmaceutical pollution is now detected in waters throughout the world. Causes include aging infrastructure, sewage overflows, and agricultural runoff,” said lead author Dr. Emma Rosi-Marshall, a scientist at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies. “Even when waste water makes it to sewage treatment facilities, they aren’t equipped to remove pharmaceuticals. As a result, our streams and rivers are exposed to a cocktail of synthetic compounds, from stimulants and antibiotics to analgesics and antihistamines.”

“We focused on the response of biofilms – which most people know as the slippery coating on stream rocks – because they’re vital to stream health,” Rosi-Marshall said “They might not look like much to the naked eye, but biofilms are complex communities composed of algae, fungi, and bacteria all living and working together. In streams, biofilms contribute to water quality by recycling nutrients and organic matter. They’re also a major food source for invertebrates that, in turn, feed larger animals like fish.”

BLOOMBERG NEWS - American business has never had it so good.

 

U.S. corporations’ after-tax profits have grown by 171 percent under Obama, more than under any president since World War II, and are now at their highest level relative to the size of the economy since the government began keeping records in 1947, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Profits are more than twice as high as their peak during President Ronald Reagan’s administration and more than 50 percent greater than during the late-1990s Internet boom, measured by the size of the economy.

 

Tom Donohue, the president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, last week said higher taxes and a “flood of new regulations” will damage an already subpar economy. “In many ways, we’re going backwards,” he said.... http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-01-17/corporate-profits-soar-as-executives-attack-obama-policy.html

Governments Are Hopelessly Addicted To Sniffing The Fumes Of Squished Dinosaurs

Governments Are Hopelessly Addicted To Sniffing The Fumes Of Squished Dinosaurs | Climate is changing, so should you | Scoop.it

Those inhabiting the economic wish-space got a case of the vapors last week when the Paris-based International Energy Agency (IEA) published an annual report stating that the USA would overtake Saudi Arabia as the world's leading oil producer and reach the long-touted nirvana of "energy independence."

 

The business of oil and gas runs on public relations fraud.

And so the story has developed that the shale oil plays of North Dakota and Texas, which started ramping up around 2005 — the same year the world hit the wall of peak conventional oil — and the shale gas plays in Texas, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, New York, and Ohio would enable American "consumers" to drive to WalMart effectively forever.

 


It's been clear for a while that authorities in many realms of endeavor — politics, economics, business, media — are very eager to sustain the illusion that we can keep our way of life chugging along.

 

But under the management of these elites, the divorce between truth and reality is nearly complete.

 

The financial system now runs entirely on accounting fraud.

 

Government runs on the fumes of statistical fraud.

 

The business of oil and gas runs on public relations fraud.

 

And the media runs on the understandable wish of the masses to believe that all the foregoing illusions still work to maintain the familiar comforts of modern life (minus Hostess Ho-Hos and Twinkies, alas).

 

Now, it happens that the particulars of oil and gas production are so abstruse that the editors of The New York Times, The Bloomberg News Service, CNN, and a score of other mass media giants swallowed the IEA report whole, with fanfares and fireworks, and a nation afflicted with doubt about its future swooned into the first week of the holidays in celebration mode — we're soon to be number 1 again, and the future is secure!

 

Here's why the shale oil story is not the "game changer" that the wishful claim it is: the price required to get it out of the ground (between $80-90 a barrel) will crush the U.S. economy.

As demand for oil falls with declining economic activity the price of oil falls — below the level that makes it worthwhile to conduct expensive shale oil drilling and fracking operations.

 

The lack of new wealth, along with declining prospects for the repayment of loans, leads to a shortage of credit, especially to businesses that require large supplies of it to keep gigantic complex operations like shale oil and gas going Shale oil (and shale gas) share some problematical properties.

 

The current trend shows declining first-year productivity in new wells drilled since 2010 running at 25 percent.

There are over 4,300 wells shale oil in the Bakken formation of North Dakota producing about 610,000 barrels a day.

In other words, shale oil (and shale gas) are Ponzi schemes.

 

The current price situation in shale gas is different than shale oil.

The drilling frenzy in shale gas produced a glut, which drove down prices from a $13 a unit (thousand cubic feet or mcf) to around $2 at its low point earlier this year.

 

The price collapse has played havoc among the companies engaged in shale gas, though it has been a boon to customers.

A lot of the drilling equipment has moved to the North Dakota oil fields.

 

It has got to go above about $8 a unit or there will be no reason for any company to be in the shale gas business.

The volatility alone will make the business of shale gas drilling impossible to maintain.

 

If the flow of oil reaches a certain low volume, it takes longer to make the long journey.

 

• Exporting countries (the ones that send us oil) are depleting their reserves and using more of their own oil, resulting in annually declining export rates.

The Dutch government is facing the threat of legal action if it fails to take swift action on climate change.

The move, which is thought to be the first time that European human rights legislation has been used to take a government to court over climate change failures, is intended to put the spotlight on what campaigners say is a lack of action and force them to prioritise cuts in greenhouse gas emissions.

Urgenda, the pressure group behind the move, sent a letter to ministers calling on them to announce new initiatives on cutting emissions. Without that, the group said it would proceed to the courts.

The government of the Netherlands has not yet responded.
