Tuesday Breeze

As renewable jobs skyrocket in the US, so do their immense health benefits. According to a recent report from Environmental Entrepreneurs, the clean energy industry currently employs more than 2.5 million Americans in sectors like energy efficiency and renewable energy. These findings come at a time where the health benefits of renewables are increasingly apparent – the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) reported $7.3 billion in savings for 2015 on healthcare costs, such as respiratory issues caused by polluting emissions.

Despite the significant benefits brought on by a burgeoning clean energy industry, there’s still plenty of progress to be made – according to conservation policy analysts, oil production on public lands increased by more than 11 per cent between 2014 and 2015. Following today’s joint announcement from the US and China that they would both sign the Paris Agreement on 22 April, all eyes will be on federal leaders to implement policies that break free from fossil fuels “as early as possible” for a safer and healthier future. @ JUAN COLE

    April showers but the flowers are not waiting for May. Already here.

    So does everyone need an electric car?

    Overcast and 60 something here, sunny and warm for the weekend, some Lupines showing color, not much else yet as Spring takes it’s time getting here. The good news is all the reservoirs are full and the Sierra snowpack is excellent this year. However the bark beetles have taken their toll on the pines along with the last several drought years making the fire danger still high.

    Sunny all day but cool. Can’t give up the winter coat yet.

    Dumped two gallons of chlorine into the pool, cleaned the chicken thighs I plan to cook tomorrow. Made mashed potatoes so I won’t have to do that tomorrow.

    Went to town, bank, library, drug store and video store.

    Now I’m here, on my computer.

    North to Terre View Drive bridge and return in 44 minutes without trying hard. Magpies, robins and little sparrow-like twittering birds.

  6. Den says:

    I installed the new tire on the SV. I then had to test it out, tree debris in the driveway almost cut that short, saw two CHP’s, one riding down to Auburn and one coming back, I was behaving.

  7. Den says:

    I think I found my next car

  8. David B. Benson says:

    @ the Hillside Cafe after a most marvelous piano duo concert by two guests from the east. Having salmon, which I hope won’t cause gout symptoms. Talked briefly with Keadrin and violinist friend as they were leaving for yet another practice session.

  9. Den says:

    Enjoying the new digs so far, nothing blew up or burned out, yet.
    A lot more quiet, no trains, no freeway noise, no woodshop equipment wailing away, Now I notice my tinnitus more, still, even that beats all that other racket.

    • David B. Benson says:

      Ignore your ear noise. Concentrate on diet and exercise; the tinnitus will fade into insignificance.

      Happy you are happy.
