        • What If the Water Can’t be Stopped? Tribal Resilience Plans in an Age of Sea Level Rise

          Learn more and download slides at http://www.eesi.org/briefings/view/042015tribal The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) held a briefing during Earth Week examining the impacts of sea level rise and oil and gas extraction on Native American communities. Across the United States, in Alaska, the Mississippi delta, the Northern Plains and the Great Lakes, land degradation presents challenges to indigenous peoples’ homes and livelihoods. As many Native American communities contemplate their potential displacement, one tribe is already preparing to move – the Isle de Jean Charles Band of Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw Indians, who make their home in southern Louisiana. Our speakers discussed the tribe’s ambitious strategy to become one of the first coastal indigenous groups to relocate as a community in modern times, and why they feel it is necessary. JR Naquin Standing in for Chief Albert Naqui of the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw, Isle de Jean Charles, Louisiana Bob Gough Secretary, Intertribal Council on Utility Policy Dr. Julie Maldonado Anthropologist and climate justice expert Download Slides: http://www.eesi.org/files/Julie_Maldonado_042015.pdf Experiences such as the Isle de Jean Charles Tribe’s inspired the White House to convene a State, Local and Tribal Leaders Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience, which met from 2013 to 2014. Last November, the Task Force published a report of 35 recommendations on how the federal government can assist local climate resilience efforts. This briefing examined some of the recommendations from tribal communities, such as encouraging the incorporation of climate resilience into land use development and management practices. The Isle de Jean Charles Tribe, which has made its home for 170 years on the Isle de Jean Charles in the bayous of southern Louisiana, has seen decades of oil and gas extraction operations, restrictive levees, and salt water intrusion from sea level rise severely diminish the freshwater marsh around its island. The dwindling marsh can no longer protect the island from ocean tides, which will eventually destroy it. Chief Albert Naquin is leading the Isle de Jean Charles Tribe as they preserve their community and culture by moving together to a new home. The tribe’s vision for their new community will emphasize agricultural sustainability, healthy living, and pride in the culture and tribal identity of the group. The briefing included a 10-minute screening of Can’t Stop the Water, a short film examining the struggle and optimism of the Isle de Jean Charles Tribe. The tribe hopes its story and innovative relocation plan can serve as a model for other tribal communities facing displacement due to land loss. Chief Albert Naquin, Bob Gough and Dr. Julie Maldonado were visiting Washington, DC as part of an East Coast tour to build awareness of tribal relocation issues. Other stops included New York and Philadelphia. This briefing was the second in a two-part series examining local resilience efforts across the country. The first event was held April 1, 2015, and can be viewed at www.eesi.org/040115resilience.

            The new National Appliance Energy Conservation regulations will affect homeowners today and for years to come. Every new water heater will be required to meet a higher efficiency standard, which is good news for those who want to lower their energy bills. But the new units, which will be bigger due to increased insulation, may not fit in your current space. Watch this video to learn what you need to know about this change — and why a compact, propane-powered tankless water heater may be the best fit for your home.

                While SunCommon has helped over 1,000 Vermonters go solar, about half of all homes can’t host solar because they don’t face the sun, or are shaded by trees or chimneys. We didn’t want those barriers to get in the way of your achieving energy independence, so we created a new solar solution available to every Vermonter: Community Solar Array (CSA). A CSA can provide for about 30 homes with no upfront cost and savings every year compared to your annual utility cost of electricity. By joining our CSA you’ve joined a new, renewables-driven community helping to build our clean energy future. Landowners with just an acre of available land can help others in their community support solar by hosting a Community Solar Array. SunCommon handles the permitting and logistics and assembles the membership through our community outreach model.

                • Significant energy spill disclosed to Vermont regulators

                  00:58

                  from SunCommon / Added

                  Pursuant to environmental protection statues, the State of Vermont has been notified of a significant energy spill. Vermont Hazardous Waste Management Regulations Section 7-105 requires that: All discharges and/or releases that meet any of the following criteria shall be immediately reported to the Secretary (ANR) by the person or persons exercising control over such waste by notifying the Waste Management & Prevention Division. At 8:02am today, SunCommon notified the Agency of Natural Resources of a massive solar spill. Attempts to limit this discharge have failed, and it appears that the spill will continue unabated. Unchecked, this incident is pouring solar radiation the equivalent of 3 billion gallons of gasoline across Vermont’s landscape – every day. In calculating the penalties for such an energy spill, SunCommon asked the Agency of Natural Resources to consider the offsetting benefits for the thousands of Vermonters who harness this solar energy to generate clean, safe, renewable power. “We expect these spills to only worsen, as the days lengthen into summer,” admitted Duane Peterson, co-president of SunCommon in making this disclosure to state officials. To alert citizens to this public safety situation, SunCommon created this educational video and is staffing phone lines for concerned Vermonters at 802/882-8181. APRIL FOOLS!

                    When asked why a solar company is bringing a musician to town, SunCommon said: “Why not? We aim to bring communities together to discuss our clean energy future. Why not at a concert? SunCommon invited the community out for a night of live music by Burlington's own Josh Panda and the Hot Damned.
