Obama's 80 Percent Clean Energy Goal: Who's He Kidding?

Memo to Hu and Obama: Water and Energy Choke Points Merit Time at the China-U.S. Summit


Washington’s foreign policy community is all aflutter anticipating the meaning and outcome of Chinese President Hu Jintao’s three-day summit with U.S. President Barack Obama, which starts today. But while the two heads of state focus on resolving what pries them apart, both nations share a dangerous confrontation within their borders over energy demand and water supply—offering a matchless opportunity for new kinds of cooperation on policy, technology,…

Talk of Tianjin Climate Conference: China and U.S. Are Electrifying The Car


TIANJIN, China - Whatever the differences that irked delegates from China and the United States during the six days of climate negotiations that ended here on Saturday, divisions principally defined by how each would control carbon emissions and measure progress, the unmistakable conclusion reached by most of the delegates and participants is how closely tied the two nations are to each the other.

Lying quietly below the nuanced diplomatic language of… Continue

Despite Divide at Tianjin Climate Conference, U.S. and China Cooperating on Advanced Coal Projects

TIANJIN, China - Though Chinese workers this week celebrated the 61st anniversary of the founding of the Peoples Republic of China, a holiday season as significant as July 4 in the United States, a swarm of

plant were busy welding pipes, fitting massive joints, and bending

Keith -

I am very late in responding - I apologize. Tthe resistance I am seeing to clean energy in the US is mostly related to the siting of an energy project, whether it be on lands with unique values (such as endangered species habitats) or more prosaic NIMBY ( such as the resistance to offshoe wind projects because of the impairment of scenic values. Another big area of resistance is to the building of the additional transmission infrastucture to brong the celen electrons to the load centers.

This is certainly an issue that we are focusing on a lot at the Center for Law, Energy, and the Environment, and one I dealt with in my former life as an administrative law judge for the California PUC, where the last matter I handled was a very controversial transmission line arguably related to renewable energy development. Would be happy to talk through these issues with you and others. My phone: 510/642-0508.

I'm familiar with the issues, the lands currently being proposed for industrial wind farms (and opposed by grassroots activists), and know some of those who are most concerned. Can't say I'm an expert, but would love to talk.

I'm following this particular issue now:

I'm in the office, 10-12 EDT Friday, 802 287 8294. Or at your convenience.

I'm intrigued by Circle of Blue, also.

On the face of it, yes. Don't know what additional assistance I can provide at the moment, but I'd be delighted to be part of the conversation and to help where I can.
