Hawaii Renewable Electricity Claims Unsupported by EIA Data, Emissions Unchanged

The political leadership and people of Hawaii understandably want to address the huge dependency of the state on high-cost petroleum for its electricity.

Weekly Climate and Energy News Roundup #459

“It is one thing to impose drastic measures and harsh economic penalties when an environmental problem is clear-cut and severe. It is quite another to do so when the environmental problem is largely hypothetical and not substantiated by careful observations.

Run Away: New analysis discusses role of managed retreat as a climate change response

"Managed retreat can be more effective in reducing risk--in ways that are socially equitable and economically efficient--if it is a proactive component of climate-driven transformations," said Mach, an associate professor in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy at UM Rosenstiel School. "It can be used to address climate risks, along with other types of responses like building seawalls or limiting new development in hazard-prone regions."
