Local solar combined with batteries can rapidly replace fossil fuel electricity in North Carolina, save billions of dollars and create thousands of jobs.
More than 170 North Carolina faith leaders are working together to find an affordable way for their houses of worship to go solar, serve their Earth Care purpose and take a leadership role in slowing climate change.
And check out the David and Goliath story of Greensboro’s Faith Community Church as it speaks out for solar freedom.
The massive natural gas expansion planned by Duke Energy would be a climate and economic disaster. Large amounts of methane — a super-potent greenhouse gas — leak from natural gas operations. Learn more and take action!
Support the Emergency Methane Action resolution calling on Gov. Cooper to stop the use of fracked gas in NC.
Ongoing global heat records have pushed humanity to the brink of the climate tipping point.
Soaring methane emissions from the fracking boom and natural gas industry are a leading cause.
Yet Duke Energy and other utilities are trying to build more fracking gas plants and pipelines. Help us stop them!
Nine national organizations join call for Lynn Good to get on the right side of history; ad campaign will urge more nonprofits, businesses and individuals to speak up. Support this effort by emailing Lynn Good at firstname.lastname@example.org and tweeting @DukeEnergy with #ClimateAction.
The state has granted the final regulatory approval needed for pre-construction work on an interstate natural gas pipeline through Nash County, opponents appear to be digging in their heels and Republican lawmakers have made a move to capture a fund set up by builders to lessen the impact in Nash and the seven other counties in the pipeline’s route.
We are senior residents of Salisbury and concerned citizens of this country. Many of us live on fixed incomes. We have been struggling to pay our high electricity bills. Some of us have even been affected or know people affected by the coal ash crisis in North Carolina. As a result of this, when Jim Warren of NC Warn came to speak to us about our energy needs, holding Duke Energy accountable for how they say they use our money, and about how the earth is affected by carbon emissions, we listened.
Leave it to the rocket scientists to solve our biggest climate mysteries. That’s exactly what NASA has done to kick off 2018, using a spectrometer imaging satellite to measure global methane emissions—a potent greenhouse gas that accelerates climate change—and revealing an alarming increase in these emissions that threatens our climate.
Every time a Duke Energy executive calls fracked natural gas “clean-burning,” it’s a pivotal lie of omission that very few reporters have been allowed to scrutinize since U.S. utilities began a huge expansion of gas burning.
Governor Cooper’s approval of fracked gas Atlantic Coast Pipeline could commit energy customers to pay for outdated technology. This decision is a loser for the people of eastern North Carolina, their economy and the urgent fight to slow climate change.
NC WARN is pleased for every new amount of solar installed in North Carolina – and hope it helps the solar power industry get more business. But we urge the news media to put Duke Energy’s newly announced rebate program into perspective.
Editorial by Ned Barnett. Duke Energy and other advocates for building the Atlantic Coast Pipeline have come up with a peculiar new justification for the $5 billion project – climate change.
A bombshell new study by NASA concludes that methane emissions from the oil and gas industry have grown rapidly and are a key driver of global warming. The findings support many earlier studies, and bolster the argument that a huge rise in super-potent methane emissions is linked to soaring global temperatures in recent years.
Less than a month after Tesla unveiled a new backup power system in South Australia, the world’s largest lithium-ion battery is already being put to the test. And it appears to be far exceeding expectations: In the past three weeks alone, the Hornsdale Power Reserve has smoothed out at least two major energy outages, responding even more quickly than the coal-fired backups that were supposed to provide emergency power.
Recent changes in the growth rate of methane, the second most important greenhouse gas, and important ozone precursor, could be due to changing anthropogenic emissions in the form of fossil fuel (FF) or agricultural emissions.
