The Ugly Truth

Categories:

Aesthetics are a leading concern for homeowners when considering solar. A valid argument for a homeowner to make is that, if they bought the home and have to look at it every day, then visual pleasure is of the utmost importance. We often see improvements in the presentation of technology emerge over time. Solar arrays have drastically improved since their inception in the 1950s. The original bulky, blue panels have been replaced by sleek, black panels designed for both functionality and attractiveness. Society often holds high standards towards appearances. ‘Ugliness’ ranks an entity’s social class to inherent value. When using coal based energy, the power is invisible to the naked eye.

President Trump Announces Withdrawal From The Paris Climate Agreement

Categories:

President Trump announced the United States withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement as part of his campaign promise to place more money in the coal industry. The decision to leave the agreement has been highly cautioned to Trump, as the effects of doing so will create a wide spread gap in the union. Even still, Trump is determined to leave the agreement; he believes it will interfere with the creation of coal plant related jobs in Western States. The Paris Agreement, as of today holds 194 countries under the accord, leaving only 2 out , Syria and Nicaragua. The United States, being the world’s 2nd largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, holds a fair amount of responsibility within the agreement. They are essential to presuming provisions that are necessary for the oversight of monitoring, verifying, and reporting emissions. Without this, it is likely that the recording of greenhouse gas emissions could be taken much more loosely, causing a drastic shift in our progression towards climate change.

PSE&G Closes Two Remaining Coal Plants in New Jersey

Categories:

Last October, PSE&G announced the closing of their two remaining power plants in Hamilton and Jersey City, NJ due to the rising cost of energy bills. There are significant long-term benefits to the plants’ removal.   This will allow the United States to greatly reduce levels of mercury, carbon, sulfur dioxide, and water pollution. New Jersey’s energy will now be split between natural and neutral gas plants that are not due to run until 2020. The competitive low cost of natural energy is thought to have had an effect on the termination of these two plants.
