Reply to: Why coal?
For residences "Stand alone solar" uses a bank of batteries and converters which means during the day the house runs on solar and at night on the batteries via the converters. Proven system working worldwide that could be widespread in Africa.
Please tell me that The World Bank Group is not buying coal mines at fire sale prices.

The best action is to re-develop and deploy the intrinsically least costly, most abundant source. That is modular meltdown proof advanced nuclear (such as the molten salt reactor). Therefore, it is of utmost concern to educate "everybody" about this very reliable, safe and compact planetary civilization supporting, excess CO2 stopping, solution.

Dear Gov. Jerry Brown,
It's great to hear your on board. We need more people like you who can influence the blind and deaf politicians.
Reply to: The Atmosphere at the People’s Climate March Is Electric
Thanks Rachel for sharing the sights and sounds of the energy and enthusiasm of the climate march. This reminds me of a similar march I took part during the WSSD only we marched backwards to convey the message that the world is not progressing in mitigating climate change. But a lot has changed over the decade and hopefully this will not be just another climate summit!!

Great to see Fred, one of the true pioneers in environmental markets, and some one who taught me a lot when I was at EDF in the 1990s.
