Willie Sutton is purported to have claimed he robbed banks “because that’s where the money is.”
Whether or not those were his words; it is the right approach to energy.

Some skeptics have seized on a recent article in The Economist noting an apparent “hiatus” in global warming to argue that climate change is a fiction and efforts to address it are misguided.

In recent months there has been a renewed look at the idea of a financial carbon bubble, or unburnable carbon reserves. Most recently, a report from The Carbon Tracker with a forward by Lord Stern of the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change (London School of Economics), argued that…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/international-news/climate-change-and-the-carbon-bubble-reality-checkby-lord-stern-of-the-grantham-research-institute-on-climate-change-london-school-of-economics/ Carbon and De-carbonization, Carbon Bubble, Carbon Tracker, Climate, Energy and Economy, Energy Demand, global temperatures, Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change, London School of Economics, Renewables, Solar Power
Global average temperatures were the hottest in 1400 years in the 20th century, more specifically during the period 1971-2000, according to a first-of-its-kind scientific study. The study, conducted by a team of 78 climate researchers in 24 countries, helps break new ground in climate science…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/environment/20th-century-temperatures-the-hottest-in-1400-years-new-climate-change-according-to-a-first-of-its-kind-scientific-study/ Climate, climate change, Environment, Global average temperatures, global temperatures, News, Risk Management
We haven’t had a good algorasm here in a while, so let’s break out our calculators and do some plug-and-chug math regarding a critical topic: the consequences of a Blue Arctic.
I define “Blue Arctic” as the Arctic Ocean being largely ice free for at least a few days.

A new study of ocean warming has just been published in Geophysical Research Letters by Balmaseda, Trenberth, and Källén (2013). There are several important conclusions which can be drawn from this paper.
Completely contrary to the popular…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/international-news/new-oceans-study-global-warming-accelerated-in-past-15-years-published-in-geophysical-research-letters-by-balmaseda-trenberth-and-kallen-2013/
