California moves to fast-track rooftop solar applications

California moves to fast-track rooftop solar applications | Solar Panel | Scoop.it
Legislation to standardize and quicken the solar permit process in California is set to go before the Senate Governance and Finance Committee on Wednesday.

Already the U.S.'s brightest solar market, law makers in California have moved to expedite and standardize the state's solar permitting process in an effort to make it even easier for homeowners to install rooftop PV arrays.

Lakes raise new question on Arctic warming | Climate News Network

Lakes raise new question on Arctic warming | Climate News Network | Solar Panel | Scoop.it

Scientists say there is uncertainty over a previously unquestioned assumption about the way in which temperatures are rising in the Arctic.

 

New research, supported by the US National Science Foundation (NSF), suggests that a rethink is required on the widely-held scientific view that thawing permafrost uniformly accelerates atmospheric warming.

 

Instead, the scientists say, their findings show that one type of Arctic lake stores more greenhouse gases (GHGs) than it emits into the atmosphere.

 

But they say the effect is unlikely to be permanent, because increasing Arctic warmth will probably lead to the renewed release of the gases stored in the lakes.
