China’s Green-Energy Revolution / John A. Mathews  & Hao Tan, Project Syndicate, 8/05/2015 https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/china-green-energy-revolution-by-john-a–mathews-and-hao-tan-2015-05

China generates most of its electricity by burning fossil fuels, just as every rising economic power has done since the Industrial Revolution. But to focus on this single fact risks overlooking a notable trend. The Chinese system of power generation is turning green – far more quickly than any other system of comparable size on the planet…

Scientific research on climate has a hard time finding media space aimed at the general public. More generally, the effort of thousands of researchers showing clearly the urgency to implement a plan for controlling climate change does not succeed in translating itself into a constant, effective impact on the decisions of individuals and public decision makers…

◊ Assessing the Energy-Efficiency Gap / Robert Stavins, An economic view of the environment, 6/05/2015 http://www.robertstavinsblog.org/2015/05/06/assessing-the-energy-efficiency-gap/

Global energy consumption is on a path to grow 30-50 percent over the next 25 years, bringing with it, in many countries, increased local air pollution, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and oil consumption, as well as higher energy prices.  Energy-efficient technologies offer considerable promise for reducing the costs and environmental damages associated with energy use, but these technologies appear not to be used by consumers and businesses to the degree that would apparently be justified, even on the basis of their own (private) financial net benefits…
