Clean Energy = More Jobs

In our continued efforts to support Nancy LaPlaca’s run for a position on the Arizona Corporation Commission (while also spreading good and important information), here’s another post written by Nancy. This one was originally published on the Arizona Capitol Times (with some minor changes).

That statement is so far removed from reality that it warrants a direct response. The … Read More

Susan Osborne Explains Why Boulder Opted For A Clean Energy Takeover

The process started in 2003 when Boulder resumed studying the option to create a municipal utility. With a climate-action plan already in place, and a local carbon tax already financing conservation and clean energy, the once nascent issue became a serious option in Boulder. Creating a municipal utility would allow for more control over the grid, reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, and an increase in clean energy production. As former Boulder mayor Susan Osborne described, Boulder … Read More

New Ecologically Friendly Way To Clean Up Oil Spills — Raw Unprocessed Cotton

What’s the best way to clean up an oil spill? Using raw, unprocessed cotton to sop it up, apparently. New research, just published in ACS journal Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research, has found that unprocessed, raw cotton may be the ideal material for cleaning up oil spills — it has an amazing ability to soak up oil, is relatively ecologically friendly, and is economically viable. The new research has provided some of the very first … Read More
