Power Hunting

For a quick synopsis of some energy issues, with a focus on the US and CA (and work done in Berkeley), check out Power Hunting in California magazine. See also the interview with Steven Chu.

Don’t miss the section about 100 new coal plants expected to come online by 2020.

In the same issue, China Charging Up discusses Chinese investments in wind to coal. China is investing heavily in non-carbon technologies, and is currently installing a coal plant a week.

In Listening to Katrina, Ray Seed discusses what earthquakes can do to CA water: “Roughly once every 200 years – which is stunningly the same number as New Orleans-an earthquake will hit Northern California badly enough that we cannot resume water shipments for a year or more to 18 million Southern Californians.”
