Climate News Roundup

Just a quick roundup of recent pieces of news that i havent gotten around to brining to you during the last week.

IGCC a step towards the future, and finally gaining momentum? (via TheWatt)

Within the next few years, utility-scale power plants using integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) technology will be built and fully integrated into utility fleets. Standardized IGCC plant designs incorporating knowledge acquired over decades of operation at industrial facilities worldwide, and more recently honed to utility power requirements at two demonstration plants in the United States, will allow IGCC to take this big step.


The Clinton Initiative takes on climate change.

"The fate of the planet that our children and grandchildren will inherit is in our hands, and it is our responsibility to do something about this crisis. The partnership between my Foundation and the Large Cities Climate Leadership Group will take practical and, most importantly, measurable steps toward helping to slow down global warming, and by taking this approach I think we can make a big difference. I commend Mayor Livingstone and the Large Cities Group for their leadership on this issue."


Will the UK harness the power of the river severn to produce 5% of its energy?

National parks threatened by climate change.

The report “Losing Ground: Western National Parks Endangered by Climate Change,” came out in late July and observes climate change via the ecosystems and culture of the great Western national parks. From Rocky Mountain to Yellowstone and Mesa Verde to Yosemite, none of the West’s recreational or cultural gems are safe from climate change effects.

Just a note to alert you to two efforts in SF, started separately but now intertwined: The SF Dept of the Environment is using yellow tape and I'm using blue, but we are marking the seven meter above sea level line to get people thinking. See sevenmeters.blogspot.com (soon the Dept will have their site at futuresealevel.org).
