Canada and the great Arctic melt

While the recent G7 commitment to "decarbonization" by 2100 is a positive step, accelerated melting of the Arctic suggests a need to step up the transition to a sustainable energy future.

A Canadian climate forum on "The Unravelling of the Arctic," held on Earth Day, April 22, in Ottawa, featured prominent scientists who discussed how warming in the Arctic has consequences for the entire planet.

Canadian doctors have a plan to save Gazan lives: Solar power

The tragedy of Gaza has largely faded from the spotlight even as the humanitarian crisis in the Palestinian territory of 1.8 million continues to worsen following last summer's military assault by Israel.

"Blockades, war and poor governance have strangled Gaza's economy and the unemployment is now the highest in the world," reports the latest World Bank May 2015 study.

Power outages lasting more than 16 hours a day continue to ravage Gaza and make sick patients in hospitals especially vulnerable as insufficient power often decides between life or death.

New initiatives in the green energy sector

Green energy is no baby any more. These days it's more like an over-achieving graduate student. The sector that has birthed itself in a climate of denial, financial and fiscal crisis and policy ping-pong is doing surprisingly well despite getting its higher education in this school of hard knocks.

Innovation is still the essential ingredient required to bring all the pieces together to make clean energy and money, too. Two new projects that are coming to light right now give a great glimpse of the outside-the-box approaches that are bridging the new industry's needs for breadth, resilience and, above all, financing. Thank goodness, because that's what we still so desperately need.
