More than 60% of the remaining coal capacity went live before 1980. Expect a LOT of coal retirement announcements in next couple of years.

OK folks: with YOUR help we raised £100,000 and built a reliable, clean solar/battery power supply for the neonatal unit at Bo Govt Hospital, . It's up and running And we provided a water tap. No baby should die in 2018 because of a power cut!

FBI had time to do a good follow up inquiry. If logical investigation was curtailed by WH this new “report” is a sham. FBI should have/must insist that it be allowed to do a complete job on referred allegations. Reputation for independence of FBI will be otherwise harmed.

Are you angry that the White House and GOP Senate restricted the from interviewing relevant witnesses? Help us flip the House. Vote, and get 10 others to vote this November. We will conduct the interviews that the did not.

All the reporting today indicates a half-baked attempt to give an excuse for senators to vote yes. Ford, Kavanaugh and Swetnick were not interviewed. Leads were not followed. Calls/reports were not returned. This was a sham.

Feinstein, after review FBI report: "I can't talk about the detail because this remains a confidential part of the background report...The most notable part of this report is what's not in it."

Huge news. Meeting this will require millions of EVs on European roads. Three biggest policy pillars pushing the EV market forward: - China NEV credit system - European fleet CO2 targets - California ZEV mandate (CAFE - impact TBD)

Looks like around 1 out of every 40 vehicles sold in the US last month had a plug. California probably closer to 1 in 10. Remarkable progress.

This isn't totally crazy. More controllable loads are good for renewables. And more electricity demand drives the price of renewables down.

On sunny continents (anywhere large landmass except Europe) a continent-sized grid with 12 hour battery storage + solar + wind (onshore and off) + a little hydro and maybe some legacy nuclear seems to get you to at least 90% carbon free electricity

The lcos forecasts I've seen for gravity storage are much higher than costs I expect for batteries w 8-12 hour storage. Gravity may work well for "seasonal storage" on wind-dominated continents. But batteries will be the cheapest for daily. And hourly-daily is the market now.

This seems reasonable to me. Bots, like humans, should not mislead people about who they are.
