          • Clean Energy, Chinese Competition and California's Imperial Valley - 1.23.11


            from Energy NOW Added 60 0 0

            Energy was high on the list of contentious issues facing President Obama and Chinese leader Hu Jintao as they met in Washington this week. The two leaders signed agreements encouraging business partnerships on clean energy and technology, as well as a Clean Energy Research Center. Research and development facilities located here and in China will focus on energy efficiency, carbon capture, and clean vehicles. China is also about to become the world leader in developing clean energy sources - leaping ahead, says the U.S., because of controversial development and trade policies. In Part 3 of his China Factor series, "Clean Energy Competition," chief correspondent Tyler Suiters travels to China, and gets a firsthand look at why it's becoming the world's clean energy leader. He also talks to experts and industry leaders here in the U.S., who tell him what this country needs to do to regain its edge. On "The Mix," panelists Aimee Christensen of Christensen Global Strategies, Ken Green of the American Enterprise Institute and Mark Fulton, Global Head of Climate Change Investment Research at Deutsche Bank, debate clean energy jobs: How they're defined and the best way to get more of them in this struggling economy. On "Plugged-In" this week, Massachusetts is demanding money back from a solar company that took millions in state aid and is now moving to China. The Mine Safety and Health Administration says Massey Energy could have averted the deaths of 29 coal miners last April if it had properly maintained mining and safety equipment. And President Obama has named General Electric chief Jeffery Immelt to head his new Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. Finally, in Taking Charge: The Promised Land for Renewables, Lee Patrick Sullivan visits Imperial Valley, California, where the state has hit the green jackpot with an abundance of energy resources: Wind, solar, geothermal and algae power. Lee Patrick looks at what is being done in California's poorest county to develop those resources.

                    from Noe R. Gonzalez Added

                    (Click play wait for video to buffer then click play again.) Recycling green waste in the city of Bakersfield California has become an important undertaking for the city. The waste is ground into compost which is then sold to the large agricultural community of Kern County and anyone else who may find good use for it. The city also needs workers to man their recycling plant. They have teamed up the Bakersfield Homeless Center to find employees to fill the plant positions. These are people who have been homeless for one reason or another but now find themselves with full time employment. Noe Gonzalez has the video and Paige Hansen reports.

                      from Steve Zieverink Added 50 0 0

                      About the ReBuilding Exchange In 2008, the non-profit organization Delta Institute formally began working on a building material waste diversion initiative. As part of its larger mission to transform the Great Lakes into the vital center of the emerging green economy, Delta was interested in creating a regional green economy model that would turn the liability of building material waste into a community asset. Working wide a wide range of stakeholders from the public and private sectors to dialogue about this issue, Delta initiated a market research study to evaluate opportunities in building material reuse and the emerging field of sustainable building deconstruction. Based on the data from this study, Delta procured project start-up funding, initiated a partnership with the deconstruction experts, The ReUse People of America, and launched Chicago's first building material reuse center in February 2009, the ReBuilding Exchange. Through a partnership with The ReUse People of America and contractors in the area, the ReBuilding Exchange gets most of its donated materials from sustainable deconstruction projects. The ReBuilding Exchange also accepts donated materials from renovation projects, and occasionally new materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill. These materials are sold for a fraction of the cost of new, so they stay out of our landfills, and are available to residents at all income levels, particularly those who can't afford the rising costs of such materials. We work hands-on with customers to maximize reuse opportunities for materials, providing creative ideas and technical know-how on executing a project. We believe that reclaimed building materials are assets and we are passionate about finding the best, cost-effective way to reuse them.
