Red-Roofed-Geo-House-HorizoWhen benchmarking existing energy and carbon use in manufacturing facilities, organizations should have integrated energy and climate master plans that lay out at least a 15-year strategic plan for breakthrough climate and energy performance gains of at least 40% in energy and 60% in greenhouse-gas reduction.  Want to dig deeper?

climatemaster-geothermalCertain criteria had to be met: 1) The solution had to be renewable energy and 2) It had to completely take over the heating of the home.  i.e. Stop the oil truck from backing up the driveway!  All renewable energy options were looked into. Solar, wind, alternate fuels. It didn't take long for the list to become very short.  Sure, I could put solar photovoltaic panels on my roof and on racks in the back yard and thus could probably get off the grid, but to convert to electric heat would have required me to buy more land for the racks of panels needed. The same would be true for wind turbines. And both would not perform well if the sun was not out or the wind was not blowing.  I had to find a renewable energy solution that would run 12 months of the year, here in New England, and not care what the weather was doing.  The only solution was geothermal energy.  What is it?  Geothermal energy takes the heat from the earth, transfers that heat within a heat pump which provides heat to the ho...

about_vancouver_island_mapTheStar.com | Business | Catalyst B.C.  Catalyst B.C.  Catalyst Paper says it will curtail production of the No. 1 paper machine at its Crofton, B.C., plant for 30 days due to lower U.S. demand. It will be idled on Sept. 14, removing about 11,000 tonnes of paper production. Catalyst said the curtailment was in response to reduced paper demand in the key U.S. market, "where adverse economic conditions have resulted in reduced print advertising." The company, headquartered in suburban Richmond, B.C., closed its Elk Falls sawdust pulp and linerboard operation on Vancouver Island in July due to the loss of sawdust supply, high energy and labour costs. Like other forestry companies, Catalyst has been struggling with a U.S. housing crisis that caused sawmills to reduce production.Chief executive Richard Garneau has said he expects weak lumber markets will continue to put a strain on fibre availability.  U.S.  Do It!  Six newborns literally landed in the hands of writer/photographer K...

aliensEditorial: Senator Obama’s Acceptance Speech, Well Delivered but Short of the MarkBy Deacon Keith Fournier  8/29/2008Catholic Online (www.catholic.org)What was woefully absent from Senator Obama’s rhetoric was the first right, the right to life. Without that right, the entire structure of human rights is placed at risk.  On the 45th anniversary of the extraordinary speech of Dr.  CHESAPEAKE, Va. (Catholic Online) - Onto an impeccably designed backdrop set against the image of a beautiful dusk descending on Denver, with the crisp cool air invigorating a crowd of over 75,000 cheering supporters waving blue signs emblazoned with the theme of his campaign “Change”, stepped an impeccably dressed Senator Barack Obama, ready to make history. And, he succeeded.  On the day on which we as a Nation commemorated the 45th anniversary of the extraordinary speech of Dr.  All week the pundits have insisted that the bar had been set very high and that this gifted orator would have to give the finest s...

susanNew York, 29 ago. (Apcom) - Sul palco dell'Invesco Field è salita Susan Eisenhower, nipote del 34esimo presidente degli Stati Uniti Dwight Eisenhower, che sconfisse il democratico Adlai Stevenson e, nel 1952, riportò i repubblicani alla Casa Bianca dopo vent'anni. "Credo che Obama abbia l'energia e il temperamento per guidare il Paese e dargli la leadership che merita", ha detto.  Come non hanno mancato di sottolineare i commentatori di Cnn, il discorso di una repubblicana nella serata in cui Barack Obama accetta la storica nomination democratica per la Casa Bianca è di grande rilievo politico. "E' come se i repubblicani avessero a parlare un membro della famiglia Kennedy", ha detto Wolf Blitzer.  "La credibilità degli Stati Uniti è al minimo storico, dobbiamo ricostruirla e Barack Obama è la persona che può farlo", ha detto la Eisenhower, sottolineando che "è in grado di mobilitare le persone e dare ispirazione, può ridare il senso dell'unità del Paese".  La nipote dell'ex presidente,...

obama_wrightsameaseachotherDaily Briefs: Gosh, maybe I'll write about stuff everyone else is writing about for a change.  Capt.  Fired  Up!  That's what I feel like today. I didn't just get what I wanted.  My beautiful suit of clothes: Whenever I go down to the Department of Health and Senior Services office for my WIC card, I wear my white tuxedo so nobody on the street will know about my dependence on state largess. Usually they don't even notice my flip-flops, if I walk quietly. "Look at that fancy, fancy man," they say in my imagination, amidst the constant, imaginary murmur of voices talking about how awesome I am. "He must be stepping into the WIC office to pick up his social-worker girlfriend for lunch," they say. Then I have to make up a story for the clerks in the office, so they won't think I'm rich and cut off the free-flowing cheap tuna faucet. "It's a costume. I stand outside the tax preparation office and wave at cars," is what I usually tell them, implying that it's day-labor work.  The fancy clot...

obama%27s%2520mamaEditor's Note: New York Community Media Alliance and the radio program Feet in Two Worlds are bringing coverage by ethnic media reporters from the DNC in Denver.  Denver, CO. -- A new sense of the challenges that lie ahead for Sen. Barack Obama seems to be settling in among ethnic media reporters covering the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado.  Speaking at a forum on Deconstructing the Ethnic Vote, organized by Feet in Two Worlds and the New York Community Media Alliance, Marrero said, “polls show that Latinos are thinking of voting for Obama, they’re obviously thinking about voting Democratic.” But she cautioned that enthusiasm about Obama’s candidacy is not necessarily the main motivator for many Latinos. “After a couple of electoral seasons when a specific number of Latinos went to the Republican Party - up to 40 per cent of Latinos voted for George Bush in 2004 - they are going back to the Democratic Party because they don’t like the way things are going in the cou...
