Far from offering a simple fix, sci-fi solutions to global warming - from fertilizing the oceans with iron to mirrors in space - may in fact make the problem worse, a probe of “geo-engineering” options says.
Ivanpah is the largest facility of its kind in the world. Unlike conventional solar plants, whose panels collect sunlight and convert it into energy through photovoltaic cells, the mirrors here follow the sun as it arcs across the sky, reflecting energy rather than absorbing it.
Las Vegas-based Caesars realized a double payoff when it gambled on saving water. By cutting back on washing, lawn-sprinkling, and plain old waste, the hotel and gaming conglomerate saved both water and energy.
In the heart of North Carolina’s bucolic wine country, east of the Great Smoky Mountains, lies Loyd Ray Farms – a factory farm that turns pig poop into energy.

Six Democrats running for lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania clashed during a debate Saturday in front of the party's liberal activists over whether the state should stop, at least temporarily, drilling in the Marcellus Shale natural gas formation.
Hamilton County, Tenn., has come a long way in cleaning up its dirty manufacturing past, but federal environmental reports show it still needs to keep close tabs on its manufacturing future.
The fracking boom has boosted emissions of toxic chemicals as well as releases of methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Colorado regulator Garry Kaufman tells host Steve Curwood that Colorado has become the first state to respond with tighter regulations of methane and toxic emissions from natural gas and oil production.
Inside Climate News, the Weather Channel and the Center for Public Integrity conducted a 8 month investigation that found Texas regulators are largely ignoring air pollution problems caused by fracking the Eagle Ford Shale. Jim Morris is a senior reporter for the Center and co-author of the story. He tells host Steve Curwood that Eagle Ford is twice the size of Massachusetts but has just 5 permanent air quality monitoring locations.
Most of the youngest and sturdiest of the giant tanks that the Energy Department uses to store high-level radioactive waste at its Hanford nuclear reservation in Washington State show some of the same construction problems as a tank that began leaking in late 2012, according to documents released by Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon, whose state is across the Columbia River from the site.
A company is seeking a new permit to spread treated sewage sludge on thousands of acres of farm and timberland in Spotsylvania County.

A tiny minnow called the Oregon Chub was put on the Endangered Species List more than 20 years ago. But the Chub has rebounded, and now officials want to make it the first fish ever taken off the Endangered Species List because of population recovery.
After reviewing the state of the science and the data gaps surrounding drinking water contaminants, a team of authors presents an ambitious roadmap to help future studies identify and elucidate risks presented by specific contaminants.
This winter has already been the wettest for almost 250 years in England and Wales, Britain's national weather service the Met Office said on Thursday. Around 435 millimeters (17 inches) of rain was recorded up to February 24 in England and Wales, making it their wettest winter since 1766.

European lawmakers last week adopted strong tobacco regulations that will increase government oversight of electronic cigarettes. The rules should serve as a model for the Food and Drug Administration, which has said that it also intends to regulate the nicotine-delivery devices.
Gov. Pat McCrory’s response to the massive coal ash spill into the Dan River points to the potentially dire effects on a major source of drinking water for North Carolina citizens. The environmental disaster involving Duke Energy, the governor’s former employer, further highlights the need for extreme caution regarding another potential threat to the state’s water resources — the process for natural gas exploration known as hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking.”
The newest method proposed to distribute water will systematically poison the water supplied to the people living in Colombo, Sri Lanka, and its suburbs.
If we want to eat local eggs, dairy and meat, good slaughter facilities must be available to all farmers. Congress should require all slaughterhouses to open their doors to local farmers, perhaps one day a week. And the Agriculture Department should assist in establishing and maintaining smaller-scale slaughterhouses in every region.
Obama administration offers health care to veterans injured by water contamination at Marine base, but it wants to block their legal claims.
