Anti-Sunshine Crew’s Attack Ads on Solyndra Aren’t Working

The anti-sunshine crew has spent $11 million attacking Solyndra. The solar company went belly-up, costing taxpayers half a billion dollars. It was a flop. But despite that flop, and despite the attack ads, Americans still overwhelmingly support clean energy, according to a Pew poll, which says that 52 percent of Americans support clean energy as our most important energy resource, and that it has far more support that fossil fuels. People know what’s up, despite all the obfuscation. ...

The Blitz is On

Seriously, how could you be anti-solar? I can understand pointing out cost issues or noting the lack of rare Earth minerals needed to build the solar panels. But being anti solar in general? It’s like being anti-rainbows or anti-puppies. As an op-ed in the New York Times puts it: … an assault on the solar industry becomes akin to sabotaging armaments factories during a mobilization for war. Let’s all keep calm and carry on. - Reilly Capps

Chasing Ice Opens in November

I was lucky to be an audience member at last January’s Sundance Film Festival world premiere of Chasing Ice, a film about my friend James Balog. The film documents Jim’s efforts to capture in photographic images, time-lapse video, and personal dialog the ‘real time’ consequences of climate change on glaciers and ice in the Arctic and elsewhere. The film received a special award by the Sundance judgers and went onto gather a slew of other accolades from festival audiences elsewehre. Chasing ...

As Great as a Bad Economy is …

Yes, the recession reduced our carbon output, as industry slowed. But we can’t count on a bad economy to keep carbon pollution down. We need bigger solutions. We need green energy. A bad economy is not a good way to save the environment. - Reilly Capps

Auroras From Above

We’ve all seen the spectacular solar flare induced auroras from the ground level but here is a very “spacey” view captured well above the Earth’s atmosphere. No matter what the perspective, auroras are always impressive: Auroras over Ontario, Canada (credit: NASA) WHB
