Wind energy, solar energy, oil, coal, natural gas and climate change

The greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change reached a record in 2019. Scientists’ warnings abound, and much of the world has long denied the effects of nature-causing gas emissions on climate change in the planet. Now, however, there is no way to ignore the protests: the facts and research show that we are close … Continue reading Wind energy, solar energy, oil, coal, natural gas and climate change

China hooked up another 20.59 GW of new wind energy capacity to its grid in 2018

China’s renewable power capacity rose 12 percent in 2018 compared to a year earlier, official data showed on Monday. China has been aggressively promoting renewable energy as part of an “energy revolution” aimed at easing its dependence on coal, a major source of pollution and climate-warming greenhouse gas emissions. Total capacity – including hydro and … Continue reading China hooked up another 20.59 GW of new wind energy capacity to its grid in 2018
