  • Protesters shut down traffic outside Peabody Coal's headquarters during rush hour on on April 21, 2016 -- with a fence bearing their demands.
    A speaker from Black Mesa leads the blockade action after Peabody executives refuse to come out to meet the delegation at the company's headquarters.
    Missouri activists have long struggled against the environmental devastation, residential displacement and unsafe labor practices of Peabody Coal, the world's second-largest coal producer, which is based in St. Louis. Peabody's acts of destruction have been vast and numerous, from contaminating aquifers with toxic coal sludge to its disregard of labor safety standards, and even the looting of sacred Native artifacts. But the company's recent bankruptcy filing has brought little comfort to those most affected by Peabody's conquest and avarice.
    This month, organizers in St. Louis joined forced with impacted Indigenous community members to form a united front against the company's current maneuvers, which they say are aimed at evading responsibility for the damage the company has done in the United States and elsewhere. Determined to hold Peabody accountable, organizers recently staged a day of action, punctuated by a rush hour street blockade, in the heart of St. Louis, just outside Peabody's headquarters, to present their ongoing demands to the company. Residents of multiple affected communities say the march, rally and blockade on April 19 were the first efforts in a struggle to wrest the company's bankruptcy settlement away from big shareholders and executive bonuses and toward a "Just Transition Fund" for coal-harmed communities.
    Among other demands, community members from St. Louis, southern Illinois and Black Mesa want Peabody to clean up contaminated water supplies and honor the pensions of its employees. As Marilyn Tewa, a Hopi board member of Black Mesa Trust, explained in a statement released shortly after the day of action, "Peabody's action to file bankruptcy means th

    I didn't know that 29% is in the 30%-40% range.... LOL!
    Once the standard bearer of our power grid, coal has dropped from providing a substantial 50% of the nation’s electricity to 29%.
    28% soon.... Meanwhile we keep on increasing at 200-300%

    Depends where you are. There are already places with 100% renewable power.
    And it will take time. But coal for power will be GONE!

  • New Delhi, April 29 : India will achieve the target for adding 10,500 MW solar power capacity in the current fiscal, New and Renewable Energy Minister Piyush Goyal said on Friday.

    "The way things are progressing in solar energy sector, we will definitely achieve our target. Solar energy is economically viable," he said at the Concentrated Solar Thermal (CST) and Solar Cooker Excellence Awards ceremony here.

    "A target of adding 10,500 MW solar power has been set for this fiscal. It is four to five time more than last year (target of 2,000 MW). For achieving this target we have already floated tenders for 21,000 MW solar power projects during last fiscal," he said.

    "With 21,000 MW of new solar projects out in the market, India has signalled to the world that we're ready to lead.

    "The preliminary studies have found that there is potential of 7.5 Lakh MW solar energy in the country which is a big target. India will achieve this target," he added.

    Goyal further said that India has exceeded solar targets by 116 percent this year in comparison to last year, and had already awarded solar projects of 11,000 MW.

  • Surge in demand for coal is likely to be ephemeral, and production isn’t falling as much as would be expected. The long-term prospects for coal in the U.S. and Europe aren’t promising, thanks to environmental concerns.
    The coal market has been burning brighter lately. But don’t expect the glow to last too long.
    That’s because the reasons for the rally aren’t sustainable. The surge in demand for coal is likely to be ephemeral, and production isn’t falling as much as would have been expected. The long-term prospects for coal aren’t promising in the U.S. and Europe, thanks to environmental concerns. But coal-generated power still accounts for two-fifths of global electricity supply.
    May-dated futures prices for coal on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange surged to $46.20 a metric ton recently, up from a recent low of $40.45 on Feb. 11. Investors should use the recent rally to lighten up their positions or sell short—by selling a futures contract—to profit from a future pullback.

    Chinese government-led social lending of $1 trillion in the first quarter of this year—and its loose monetary policy—sparked economic activity, says Lakshman Achuthan, co-founder of the New York–based Economic Cycle Research Institute. “It certainly will give us some economic lift short-term, but it’s unlikely to be sustainable,” he says.

    THAT ECONOMIC LIFT has been apparent in the skyrocketing prices for rebar, the steel used to make reinforced concrete, which is up almost 50% this year. Coal is used in about 70% of the world’s steel production. The rest is made with electricity, which itself is often generated using coal. Other economic activity also is highly correlated with electricity production, again a boost for coal consumption.
