Inside The European Union’s Aggressive 20-20-20 Renewable Energy Goals

Can Europe's fragmented renewable energy market get to 30% clean energy by 2020?
Summary: 

With the lack of progress of a comprehensive federal renewable energy policy at the U.S. Capitol, it was heartening to hear about real progress being made in Europe during my recent trip to Brussels at the end of March. The European Union (E.U.) has adopted aggressive climate and energy goals—the “20-20-20” targets that aim to derive 20% of EU energy consumption from renewable resources by 2020. But the EU is struggling with developing an effective voluntary market for renewable energy to complement these government efforts, and without this market, may not make its goal.

Think Globally, Act Locally

How to address climate change and actually make a difference
Summary: 

Anne-Franziska Sinner examines the many ways global climate treaties are dependent on local action, and getting this kind of action started takes more than just educating the public. It also takes creating incentives that appeal to different kinds of people, and understanding that making environmental progress ultimately means changing our ways.

Summary:

The Breeder's Dilemma

Can you call yourself an environmentalist and still have kids?
Summary: 

Our decision to start a family didn’t come down to anything resembling the cold calculus of a greenhouse gas inventory (though we did make a spreadsheet with columns for pro and con). It was more a decision from our heart than our head about whether to bring another U.S. consumer into a world possibly dipping its toe into the sixth Great Extinction. And consume he will. Americans are some of the biggest greenhouse gas emitters in the world, and compared to most of our brethren around the world we look like Gullivers in the land of the Lilliputian, emissions-wise. As much as my wife and I have done to reduce our daily impact on the planet, I just guaranteed the perpetuation of that impact for generations to come. Is this my parting gift?
