In an amazingly bipartisan move, Congress just ensured the steady growth of wind and solar through 2021.
It’s astounding what Congress members can accomplish when they find that it’s in their best interest to cooperate. In order to ensure smooth sailing (at least on the budget front) until the 2016 election, Congress just passed a spending bill with none of the drama or tumult that has become its status quo. And, better yet, that spending bill promises to unleash the potential of solar and wind in our country as viable, cost-effective clean energy sources.
Milan's greenest building is powered by renewables and covered in trees.
The 2015 Milan Expo will be coming to a close at the end of October, and very little of the marvelous pavilions and buildings millions of people have been visiting will stay up after the final day. However, because of the huge scope and resonance of the event, the city had been going through a makeover to prepare for the beginning of Expo this May. In 2014, Milan’s skyline was permanently changed with the introduction of futuristic towers made of glass, iron, and most interestingly, trees.
Fossil fuel interests are waging a shady war on solar through backroom transactions and bootleg deals. How long will they be able to rig the game?
84% of U.S. voters are in favor of “taking action to accelerate the development and use of clean energy”, but major fossil fuel interests don’t care as long as their profits are at stake.
A recent report by the Environment America exposed 12 special interest groups that are waging aggressive anti-solar campaigns in states across the country to quell the exponential growth that the solar industry has recently been experiencing.

Always the effective orator, Obama set a hopeful vision for a clean energy future, focusing his message on both the imperative and the financial benefits of immediate and decisive climate action.
An Innovation Design Request filed with RESNET is helping this Iowa DOE Zero Energy Ready Home and passive house project acquire a more accurate HERS Index.

By reducing problems to their most fundamental elements, SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity founder Elon Musk is able to create revolutionary solutions.
Elon Musk thinks differently than most people do. Rather than applying logic to issues that is derived from and compounded upon existing reasoning, Musk reduces issues to their essential core, and then develops new intelligence based on the fundamentals of pure reason.
