“New energy modeling on the U.S. states of Colorado and Minnesota offers some exciting and even startling insights: It can save everyone money to transition our power generation off of fossil fuels and onto wind, solar, and storage. And moving space and domestic hot water heating onto the power grid by switching to heat pumps, and moving transportation onto the power grid by switching to electric vehicles, will only increase the savings for all consumers—even those who don’t own a car will benefit from transitioning our fleets to EVs. In fact, the more we decarbonize, the more money it will save everyone, the more jobs will be created, and the closer we will get to addressing the climate challenge.”Dr. Christopher Clack is the founder of Vibrant Clean Energy,
Media outlets around the world have reacted to the moment Prime Minister Scott Morrison was snubbed by members of the fire-ravaged Cobargo community, as the bushfire crisis in Australia worsens.
Conservative UK commentator and breakfast TV host Piers Morgan led the global criticism against the PM, who was told by devastated residents yesterday that he should be “ashamed of himself” and that he’d “left the country to burn”.
Morgan called the fires – which have killed at least 20 people since October – a “staggering, terrible tragedy” and took to social media to declare that Mr Morrison “got what he deserved” in Cobargo.
